Stripes & a Vest


Shirt: Banana Republic, Vest: Old Navy,
Bag: Michael Kors, Boots: Old Navy,
Bubble Necklace: Old, Jeans: Old Navy
Hey friends, its FRIDAY!!!!! And Superbowl weekend, which means we get to eat lots of yummy, unhealthy food and watch really funny commercials, and stare at Eric Decker while he plays the game of his life right?! At least that's what I'll be doing. This outfit post is one of my favorites! As I have mentioned before, I love wearing a vest! There is just something about it, and when I found this shirt(for the deal of the century) I really felt like it just needed something with it. I was searching through my closet and then low and behold, this beauty jumped out at me! The color combo is just beautiful and then adding the mustard yellow bubble necklace is next level! I kinda got giddy on the inside when this outfit came together! And I know y'all are probably so tired of me wearing these boots, but they just go with everything and I love them! Shout out to my best friend that got them for me for Christmas!!! Anywho, I hope y'all have a great weekend and stay safe! Goooooo Broncos!

Home Inspiration

Building a house can be a bit overwhelming! Having to wait till its finished to start buying anything is even harder. But we are defiantly starting to pick out color schemes and themes for how we want our house to look. Obviously you can see my vision in these pictures! I love and I mean LOVE the turquoise/light blue, coral, yellow, and white look! I think its just enough color but gives that peaceful feeling when you walk in. The hardest part for me is choosing where I want those pops of color and how to do it tastefully. If it were up to me the whole house would be a ton of color but I don't think Brian would be too happy with that. He is more on the "boring" side of things. Just kidding B! Thank goodness for my sweet mom! She has such a good eye for interior decorating and turning old pieces of furniture into beautiful pieces! One man's junk is her treasure and no matter how many times I have questioned her buying this "junk" it always turns out beautiful! Oh boy, I'm counting down the days, I mean months :(, till we get to move in!

Coral Peplum


Top: Target, Blazer: Forever 21,
Leggings: Old, Shoes: Gianni Bini,
Sunglasses: Marley Lilly
Happy Monday y'all!! It's such a beautiful day here in NC. I could just sit outside all day and watch Daisy run around and play! I hope y'all had a great weekend! Me and B went to Ikea to look at different things for our house and found some great stuff! However we still are looking for furniture, in particular a couch and bedroom set. Any ideas would be much appreciated!
Today's outfit post is about this amazing peplum top I found at target last summer! It was one of my staple pieces I wore like crazy all summer long. Now that its cold outside, I wanted to find a way to still wear it! I think pairing it with a blazer is the exact way to go! I love the detail of the zipper on my leggings and think that they work great with this outfit, however putting this top and blazer with some skinny jeans would have been just as cute! And side note, I love that the silver cuffs on my blazer bring out the silver stripes in my top! Ladies, if your like me and have more of an hourglass figure, a peplum top is the way to go! Show off those curves!!
The sun was obviously not cooperating with me in these pictures!

Leopard Love

I have been a leopard loving/wearing freak for as long as  I can remember! In fact, I have a friend that hates it so I buy it more! I am not one of those people who finds it tacky, however I don't think you should over do it or wear 10 different patterns of leopard at the same time. Leopard can be classy and chic when worn in the right way! I think it works best when you use the leopard print as an accessory. Unless of course its a dress or shirt, then I say rock it! I have a pair of leopard Steve Madden flats that I have almost worn out because I wear them with everything! I feel like I have been seeing more and more people wearing leopard lately which totally excites me! These are some of my leopard favorites that I have found lately!

The Big Deal about Oils

Have y'all been hearing about the newest product in skin care?! Oils are everywhere and everyone wants them! Working at Sephora has exposed me to all kinds of amazing products and these by far are some of my favorites! 

There is a slight misconception about Oils. Most people with oily skin feel as if they can not use them, when in fact it is the complete opposite! Oils cancel out oils! It will actually clear up any acne or problem areas on your skin! And most people think that by using an oil as a moisturizer, it will leave their face looking like a pan after you fry bacon! That is not the case! This is not vegetable oil, it's Argan oil, and other natural oils!!

Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil is amazing and one of our best sellers! She has created this cleanser that can be used everyday to take off makeup and any other skin impurities while leaving your face soft and hydrated. And the 100% Argan Oil light is my favorite product!!! This more lightweight version of the original was made so that you could use it to moisturize your face as many times during the day as you need! You can also use it on split ends, your cuticles, and any dry patches you have on your skin.  You can also wear it under your makeup as a primer and it's great for all skin types! I promise y'all are going to love oils! You have to give them a try!

A pop of pink

I hope y'all had a great weekend! Brian and I spent most of our time going to different furniture stores and running errands. Oh the joys of being an adult. I never thought I would actually be excited to go to Lowes and pick out paint colors, ceiling fans and a new fridge, but I love it!  Sorry mom for all of those years I kicked and screamed to not go there.

But on to my outfit! I LOVE wearing vests! I think they are so versatile and add that extra touch of style to any outfit! Since I work at Sephora, I'm constantly dressed in all black. So any chance I get to add a pop of color makes me so happy! Especially when that color is Hot pink! And I have to tell y'all about this steal of a deal I got last week! My pink and gold bracelet was like $4.50 from Francesca's!! They were having a major clearance and y'all know I love a good deal!

Nothing like a little polka dots and the beautiful pantone color of 2014 to brighten your Friday! I am in love with this radiant orchid color! I want to wear it any way I can and these shoes are absolutely my favorite!!

Brian and I went to the design studio this morning to pick out everything for our new house! We had so much fun, choosing which granite we wanted, cabinet colors, hardwoods, fireplace options, and the list goes on and on! I just can't wait to see it all come together! And the best part, was that we agreed on almost everything and didn't get into one argument! It was pure bliss! Now I'm ready to put on some warm, comfy clothes and chill out! This wind and cold weather has got to go! Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!!

Y'all I am obsessed with this look right now! I am pretty sure I will never get tired of it! This combo has been my go-to all winter! Not only is it so comfy and versatile, but I feel like it's so fashion forward and everyone looks good wearing it! I have purchased like 3 over-sized sweaters in the past week and I just got two new pairs of booties for Christmas!

You can easily make this a day-time look with cute straight legged jeans and delicate pieces of jewelry or take it up a notch at night with leather leggings and more chunky jewelry! Either way, I'm rocking this combo all the way into spring, and who knows, I might do it with jean shorts and gladiator sandals in the summer! What do y'all think?!

My Beauty Favorites

Working at Sephora has really opened my eyes to all kinds of amazing products! Getting to try them all is probably one of the best perks about working there! So I wanted to share with you some of my favorite ones right now!

1. Fresh Sugar lip treatments are a must have in every woman's beauty bag! My favorite color is this gorgeous passion color in crimson red! This lip treatment nourishes and protects your lips with just the right amount of color. It's perfect for everyday wear!

2. Tarte amazonian clay full coverage foundation. This is my FAVORITE product right now! Because it is made with amazonian clay, its completely natural and so wonderful for your skin. I have been wearing it for about a week and I have already had people compliment me on how awesome my skin looks!

3. This Make Up Forever HD translucent powder is awesome! It's going to set your foundation while softening the appearance of imperfections. It's going to leave your skin looking radiant!

4. Nars "Heat Wave" lipstick is my go-to! I love the vibrant orange-red color and every time I wear it, everyone stops me to ask what color it is!

5. Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment is a leave on moisturizing mask that not only smells amazing, but leaves your face so hydrated and silky smooth, I'm telling you, I cant get enough! This is what celebrity make-up artist use on their clients before big award shows and photo shoots!

6. Bite lip mask! Y'all I'm so serious when I tell you this stuff is heaven sent! I use just a tiny bit every night before I go to bed and I wake up with the most soft lips! Everyone needs this right now with the weather we are all experiencing. This will heal your chapped lips in a day!! So amazing!!
