Day Makeup & Night Makeup with gloMinerals

When I find a product or brand that love, I am all in. In this case I love the brand gloMinerals for all of the wonderful products I keep getting to try, so I wanted to share a few of my go-to looks using their makeup. You will be obsessed in no time, promise!

With their new line of Cream Stay Shadow Sticks & Precise Micro Browliners, I have created two looks that have been on major repeat, one day and one night look. These shadow sticks stay put all day (or night for that matter) and are so easy to apply. My makeup application takes about 5 minutes now and that time saved is something to be happy about. I'm always saying I wish I had more time in my day... ;)

Precise Micro Browliner: Dark Brown & Light Brown

Back in Black

The weather is changing and  I have officially rotated my closet. That's right ladies, my Fall wardrobe is out in full force and I am taking it back to the classics. Simply put, black is always in style and I find myself wearing it from head to toe most in the Fall and Winter months. Back in black! 

I decided to layer this gorgeous black knit sweater over a sleeveless print dress. The repeating detail throughout this outfit was tassels. I wrapped this amazing tassel belt around the sweater, added my newest go-to gold bracelet with tassel detail, and for the last tassel item, I wore these fantastic boots. Side note, these boots are beyond comfortable. Stylish and cozy, I will be living in them the next few months for sure! OK, back to my outfit. The last few additions were more gold jewelry, black sunglasses, and a bright lip.

Remix: White Peplum


Pin It

I love an item of clothing that is not only timeless but can also be mixed and matched quite a few ways in your wardrobe.  A classic white (or cream for that matter) peplum top is just that item! Over the years I have worn it with denim, chevron, and even joggers, it just seems to pair with anything. I think my favorite thing is, I recently rotated my closet and this is one of the items that didn't need to be moved. Timeless, easy to match, and year-round wear... what's not to love? 






Here are a few peplums I am currently drooling over if you're in the mood for a bit of shopping. Why am I always in the mood for shopping?! ;)

I've Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Sometimes you need to bring the sunshine out in your outfit, especially when storms are coming and going all day long. On this cloudy day, I decided to pair this bright orange tank with skinny jeans and classic flats (what's more classic then Chucks?). It was a bit cooler by the lake, so I added a white denim jacket. I know most people love wearing a white jacket in the Spring time, but I also love rocking it in the Fall as well! Why not I say? 

These photos were taken when we were visiting our lake home a couple of weekends back. I loved that on this day, all morning we sat around, relaxed, and watched the rain fall. Right around mid-day, we decided to head out for lunch and the weather took a turn for the better. It's moments like these while I watch my kids holding hands with their grandparents, walking by the lake to one of our favorite spots, Gordy's, that make me happy. Weekends are for relaxing, having fun with the people you love the most, and making sure you are present in those moments. For some reason, I find this happens more for me when I'm at the lake. My brain just slows down and I feel fully relaxed yet still plugged in. Does that even make sense? lol

Remix: Polka Dot Blouse


I absolutely love this remix. Each time I have worn this blouse on the blog, I have styled it such a different way. The first time I wore it as a top and tied it around my waist, next I wore it over a dress as a layering piece, and finally I added it under a dress to get more wear out of a summer piece in my wardrobe. What I love the most about his remix is, even though the styling is very different, the colors are exactly the same and I never realized that prior to writing this blog post! I guess now that I see my pattern, I'll have to really mix it up for the next time I style it. Challenge accepted!

Here is a closer look at the three pairings:

If You're Cold Then You Should Put a Coat on it

Do you see what I did there with the title? I mean, everything works when you sing it like Beyonce. (WWBD...that should be a thing if it isn't already! lol) I am so ready for Fall fashion you guys. As a girl from the Midwest, I have quit the jacket collection. This windbreaker from J.Jill is the perfect addition to take me through these transitional months and then again it will work in the Spring. It has a super fun button detail on the sides and can actually be unbuttoned for a looser, more flowy fit. 

On this day, I styled some cuffed denim with a classic cami blouse. To dress this day look up, I added print heels and my go-to cross body bag. The windbreaker, red sunglasses, and simple jewelry completed my outfit and I was ready for whatever the day would bring.

Outtakes: Volume 7

It's that time again...outtakes time! This round I was able to group my blogging bloopers into four categories: walking & swinging my bag, twirl girl, this seemed like a good photo idea at the time, and awkward. I hope you enjoy these fun outtakes as much as I do! 

Walking & Swinging my Bag
