Little Red Train

     Handbag | Dress (similar) | Sandals | Jewelry (earrings, necklace, watch) | Nail Polish | Sunglasses 
The other day I had the experience of having A random night in Midway Kentucky. While on a stroll through the main street, saw this cute little red train, so you know that meant an impromptu photo session.

After pictures and seeing a little bit of the town, I went to dinner at Heirloom restaurant (website) with my boyfriend and a couple other Aussies. The food was awesome. If you are ever in Midway I would definitely suggest it. Midway is a cool little town that I plan to explore more this summer, so stay tuned.

For dinner I wore a simple nautical dress, which is great for summer. I honestly have had this dress for years and still love it (linked similar dresses here and here). I paired it with my favorite earrings and necklace, added this blush colored cross body (found here), and what I call my fancy flip flops (here). Every girl needs a pair! I finished the look with sunnies (similar) and my favorite lipstick of the summer (here). 
What’s your favorite small town to explore?

Everyday Dress

I love a simple easy dress that you can wear everyday. Who is with me? That one dress that you can throw on when you are undecided on what to wear. The dress that you know always looks good on you.

That dress for me is a shift dress. The clean lines and length have always worked for me. This dress can be paired with heels, boots and flats and can look great. In the fall and winter I like to pair this type of dress with boots like I did below. I also add simple jewelry and a tote to finish the outfit. I bought this specific dress year ago but I liked similar shift dresses and all other accessories below. What is your favorite go to dress? Hope you enjoy!

This Jacket

Happy Wednesday All! Have you ever found the perfect jacket? I mean a jacket you just love? Well this jacket from Sheinside is my perfect jacket for fall.

This black camel long sleeve color block jacket, which can be found here, is a great piece to add to your closet. It is a neutral so it can be paired with many outfits. The jacket is light weight and can be worn over a light sweater, tank, or even a dress (like I wore below). I think the black and tan dress complimented it well, topped off with black leggings and flats. I have linked similar looks below. Hope you enjoy!

Your arm candy can definitely make an outfit. The accessories of an outfit are just as important as the outfit itself. Who loves their jewelry as much as I do? I am always looking for unique jewelry to add to my collection. I found that at Alta Chic. They have great pieces that would compliment any outfit. Like their Black Beauty bracelet that can be seen below. I love this bracelet not only because it can go with many outfits but because the closure is unique in that it is a magnet so it’s easy to close. We have all had those pieces that we can’t get on or take off without help for someone else. This piece is easy to clasp on your own. Alta Chic has some great pieces that you are sure to love. Check them out and don’t forget to enter the giveaway.

Dainty Jewell

Happy Monday All! Lets talk about the perfect tulle skirt. If you are a fan of tulle this polk a dot tutu is for you. It’s made for twirling.

This skirt from Dainty Jewell’s comes in two colors you can find the black one here. Dainty Jewell’s is a online boutique that prides itself on selling stylish modest clothes for women and young girls. They have some great pieces. You should definitely check them out.

I paired this tulle skirt with a brightly colored blue top and grey leather jacket. When worn with peep toe booties and a leopard clutch it gives the skirt a little bit of an edge but still allows the outfit to be modest. This skirt can be paired with many styles of tops to give it a different look. Check out my look below. I have linked some similar pieces. Hope you enjoy!

Makeup Monday

Happy Monday all. I hope you had a great weekend. I sure did. I am starting a new series on my blog today that I am titling “Makeup Monday”. I plan to try out and write a review on a makeup product twice a month on Mondays.  So let me know any makeup products that you would like me to review in the comment box below. The product that I chose to test out this week is the L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lip color to get ready for fall. Have you tried these yet? If not you should.

Not only are they affordable, under $9 to be exact, they go on smooth and keep your lips hydrated. The matte colors stay on for hours, so no need to reapply every time you take a sip of that coffee. This collection comes in 6 nude color selections and 6 red color selections. The 6 nudes shades were carefully categorized to fit individuals skin tones, so you can choose from Jennifer’s Nude  (for medium-olive skin tones), Freida’s Nude  (for honey skin tones), Doutzen’s Nude  (for fair-light skin tones), Liya’s Nude  (for deeper skin tones), Julianne’s Nudes , and Eva’s Nude  (for light-medium skin tones). This helps to pick out your perfect shade of nude.  Since I have a medium to dark skin tone I selected Liya’s Nude. The color worked great for my skin complexion  (see below). It was just enough lip color to tell you had on lipstick but not over the top. Hence the name nude.  So in my case I would say they nailed it. This color is perfect for a daytime look. There are also 6 different shades of red in this collection. They are not specific to skin tone but you are sure to find your perfect red in one of these bold matte colors. You can find the six shades here. I chose to try Blake’s Red. I loved it. Not only did it last most of the day it did fade or dry my lips out. This is always a positive in my book. These L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lip Colors are definitely a great drugstore pick and worth the money. You can find these lip sticks at your local Walgreen’s or here. What is your favorite fall lip color? I linked a couple of the L’oreal lip colors below. Hope you enjoy.

Wedding Wear

It is starting fall wedding season. And if you are like me you are always wondering what to wear?

The weather can be a little tricky this time of year, especially if the wedding is outside. It can be chilly temps one day and shorts and t-shirt weather the next. So this past weekend I attended a wedding that was outside, and 90 degrees might I add. It was a country chic themed, complete with a barn, hay, and mason jars to drink out of. I thought wearing a little lace would be fitting for this scenery. The dress I have on is my 2015 Kentucky Derby dress that came from The Limited early this spring. I believe in shopping your closet first ladies. I had only wore it once and I thought it was a great time to wear it again. I linked similar dresses as well as accessories below. I hope you enjoy!

Summer Style

I am all about bright colors this summer. What about you? I have always liked color and never shied away from it. I love to pair a bright color with a neutral, like white pants, so that it will pop. Check out outfit details below. Hope you enjoy!
