Floral Blazer

Blazer: Kohls, Top: Forever 21, 
Heels: Gianni Bini, Clutch: Old

One of my all time favorite pieces for everyone's wardrobe, and a must-have if you ask me, is a blazer! The structure, the effortless chic, yet cool vibe they give off, is just everything!! I love how they can truly change an entire outfit and how perfectly they look dressed up with heels or down with flats! A blazer really should be a staple piece in your closet! 

When I saw this blazer last year at Kohls as one of Lauren Conrads fall collection pieces, I about died right then and there. Okay, maybe a little dramatic, but I really did let a squeal! Not only is the floral pattern adorable, but the colors couldn't be more perfect! I try not to wear it too often so that I never get tired of it! These heels, I got on sale at Dillards not too long ago, and can we just all agree they are perfect!?! I LOVE them! And the best part is that they are comfortable! I can't wait to wear them to all of the weddings I will be attending next fall! I can dance all night in these beauties!

Well y'all we have made it half way through the week! I am so excited for this weekend! My family and Brian and I are going to the mountains to ride bikes and see all of the beautiful leaves changing colors! I totally need this mini vaca so I'm counting down the days!

I wanted to share with you my favorite products from Stila! Just from working at Sephora I am exposed to so many brands and amazing makeup products, but I find myself going to Stila so often lately! They just came out with this new matte eyeshadow pallet that is AMAZING!! I have been trying to get away from so much shimmer in my shadows lately just because I feel like the matte gives so much more of a natural eye and you can actually make it look really sexy!

Their foundation comes with this brush, and in the top of the cap, is your perfect concealer for your shade of foundation! You get all 3 in 1! Best deal and its a great foundation! Eyeliners: You can't and will not find a better liquid eyeliner! If you don't have the stila black liquid eyeliner, you need to get this asap! It will change your life! And if you are not a black eyeliner person or liquid, their lionfish pencil eyeliner is the prettiest brown I have ever seen!!

This primer is perfect for anyone that has any discoloration in their face. I have a lot of redness in my cheeks and the green really helps to balance it out. It's hydrating, not silicone, and has 3 different colors to even out your complexion! This bronzer is gorgeous!! Has a little shimmer but I like to wear in right in my cheekbone and it gives the best natural glow! And last but definitely not least is the Stila Stay All Day lip stains! Oh my gosh, perfection! I haven't tried one color that I didn't love! Obviously everyone loves Beso for the perfect red, but truly all of the colors are perfect!!

Navy Stripes

Happy Monday Y'all!! I hope you had a great weekend! Brian and I were crazy busy all weekend and didn't really get to spend a lot of time together, which stinks, but I would say we were very productive! Saturday, My friend Kelly and I got to set up a booth, at a local Festival for Suubi Darlings! We did really good and get to send the ladies in Uganda money which just makes our hearts so happy!! Saturday night we went out with friends for dinner and got to see their house for the first time! Y'all, oh my gosh, it was beautiful and has totally inspired me to completely change how I want our house to look! Brian is going to kill me, but I'm redecorating!

This dress in one of my favorites for fall! I got it last year, and this is the first time I have worn it this season! The material is a little thicker so it keeps me pretty warm! I love the drawstring, especially on a dress with horizontal stripes, to help give it shape and narrow the waist! This necklace is actually my mother-in-laws, she let me borrow. And y'all will never believe it, but she got it at Walmart for like $10! I about died when she told me!

Coat Trends for the Season

Coat Trends for the Season

It is such a nasty, cold, rainy Monday here. As the weather gets colder, it's time to transition from sweaters to coats! I love how coats can change your look so effortlessly! This season I want to try and reinvent some of my go-to outfits with fun, on trend coats! I picked some of my favorites to put in this collage and they are all pretty affordable and easy to access! The cape from Forever 21 might be my favorite! I'm obsessed with capes and how chic and comfortable they are! I think my closet will be filled with them by the end of Winter! And of course the most on trend coats right now are the Cocoon, oversized coat, the coats with bold, vivid, bright colors, and the Shearling jackets with either real or faux detailing. I loved the faux shearling lined jacket from Mango! The camel color is so hot right now!

I have been in Utah all week with Sephora having the most amazing skin care training! I can't wait to share with y'all some of my new favorite products! If it ever stops raining long enough for me to take some outfit posts, those will be up soon too! Happy Monday Y'all!!!

Hello October

I don't know about y'all but I love everything about October! Visiting a pumpkin patch, hayrides, warm coffee, dressing in layers and not to mention we are almost to November which means, I can start decorating for Christmas!! Not to rush Halloween or Thanksgiving or anything! I always like to pick a go-to outfit this time of year. Something easy, that I know will work without having to think about it. My absolute favorite go-to item this time of year, is a vest. A vest can come in many forms: furry, crochet, puffy, quilted, but something that I can throw over a long sleeve tee or button down shirt, paired with some leggings or skinny jeans and a pair of boots and be out the door! You will more than likely, ok, you absolutely will, see lots of vest here on this little blog of mine in the coming months, so get ready! This is one of those go-to outfits! I love this long vest and if you know me, you know I love leopard, so why not pair the two together?!
