Summer Date Night Style

IMG_1212

I wear so many dresses in the summertime, it gets a bit ridiculous :). So when I received this gorgeous dress from The Mint Julep that was a bit too short for me to style as a dress, I jumped at the opportunity at putting together a perfect summer date night look (that isn’t a dress for once… haha).

This dress is so versatile, it can be styled as a dress….duh or as a tunic. After this look came together so nicely I totally fell in love with this dress styled as a tunic. The Mint Julep has SO MANY stinking cute styles, I could shop on their site for hours and hours.

Now about the MOST BEAUTIFUL clutch ever, its from Larae Boutique, a fashion forward boutique located in Hawaii. They have the best deals that I have seen to date and some of the most beautiful, unique styles. This clutch is only $10 and would pair so perfectly with almost anything. It’s even prettier in person. Check out Larae, I know that you will love them and their prices as much as I do!

Shoes: Target // Leggings: Victorias Secret (make sure to use Ebates to get cash back at Victorias Secret and Target!)

Summer is HOT// My Tips On Staying Cool

IMG_0720-1 This Summer has been the hottest Summer in Utah for a very long time. Now, I am a huge fan of Summer time (who in the right mind isn’t??) but when it’s this hot this early into Summer, it definitely make things interesting. I am going to share with you how I stay cool without sacrificing style or modesty. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and we believe in being modest, especially after we have been endowed in the Temple (even though that is what I believe, it totally doesn’t mean I don’t love you all the same if you don’t feel the same way… I promise!). Thus, I have always had a hard time when Summer came because its so HOT and when it’s so hot the only way to cool down is to wear less…right? WRONG! Here are my tips on how: Skirts, dresses, and sandals, oh my! 1. Dresses- I LIVE in skirts and dresses in the summer time. Lately I have been obsessed with Baseball tee dresses. There are so many amazing midi dresses out there that are so comfy and so BREEZY. Yes breezy, I feel way cooler in a midi dress than I even do in capris. Sometimes I have the problem with dresses not being quite long enough, when I run into this problem I always size up. More baggy and less fitted is definitely in right now so its a win win 🙂 Here are links to some of my favorite summer breezy dresses: Moxie and Threads (remember to enter in “whitjmoxie” for 20% off your purchase) Mindy Mae’s Market, and Sonnet JamesIMG_0637 IMG_0824 IMG_0634 2. Sandals… let yo feet breathe!! Lets also talk about how amazing sandals look with skirts and dresses. Here are some of my very favorite sandals right now: PS I Adore You, Target (they have a promo going on right now, save 20% on shoes and accessories), and Piper and Scoot 3. Skirts with graphic tees, lets be honest here… graphic tees are all the rage and I am SO HAPPY ABOUT IT! Just like dresses, skirts give you that easy breezy feeling in this summer heat. It is the perfect way to stay nice and cool. Graphic tees are so cute and are completely effortless, you honestly can’t go wrong with a graphic tee. Add a graphic tee to any skirt and I promise that you will be rocking it. Here are some of my favorite summer skirts: Modest Pop, and Laurel Sherbert (you know getting two for one is like my favorite thing…look at these skirts and you will totally know why I love them. Enter in code “SUMMER15” for 20% off your purchase). Now for some of my favorite graphic tees: Arsenic and Lace, and Sweet T’s Design. IMG_0591IMG_0812 4. McDonalds Diet coke….nuff said- keep yourself hydrated! I know this isn’t fashion related but I think my veins bleed diet coke so I had to add it in here :). I would LOVE to hear how you stay cool in the Summer, comment below and let me know! Thanks for reading! FullSizeRender

Pink, Tulle, and Floral // Getting the Most Out of Your Purchases

IMG_0823

My outfit today involves three of my favorite things; pink, tulle, and floral. These three are such a great combination together, you really just can’t go wrong. You might recognize this shirt from one of my previous posts a few back called Laid Back Summer  Lovin! In that post I styled this shirt very casually. But this time around I styled it fancy. Which brings me to the topic of how to make the very most out of your purchases.

I am not, nor will I ever be, the type of blogger who buys prada and wears Louis Vuitton, there is absolutely nothing wrong with those designers but I am just not a designer type. When I buy, I buy for style (of course) but I also buy for versatility. My hubs and I have a budget we set each month and I stay within that budget, even as I blog. In order to do this I look for pieces to buy that I know I can wear at least two different ways, like this shirt. If I can’t wear it two different ways then I rarely buy it…unless I am in LOVE with it and in that case…well you know what that case is :).

This shirt is from White Plum right now you can get 40% off your order of $40 or more by entering in code “AMERICAN BEAUTY”

What are your tricks for style on a budget? I would love to hear from you! I am always looking for new ideas. Thanks for reading!

A Pop of Pink

IMG_0813
There’s not much better than a pop of color, especially when the color is pink. I find myself using an accent color all over my house and often in my wardrobe. I LOVE adding and accentuating those little colorful details. This outfit is so classy and fun, I decided to use bright pink as my accent color, I had Seventy7 Cosmetics Fuchsia colored lipstick on my lips, bright pink pumps, and a beautiful bright pink charm bracelet  that my cute mom gave me for my birthday.

Now for the outfit deets… this striped pink shirt is one of my very favorites. I bought it for less than $10 from BB Styled Boutique’s Warehouse s
ale a few weeks ago- here’s the bummer part- I have looked and looked and looked on their website to find it and I can’t :(. I am not sure if they are just not carrying it anymore or what? I will keep trying to track down a company that sales it though, don’t you worry :). The skirt is from Kohl’s it’s part of the Lauren Conrad collection. I love the length on this, it is long enough to wear heels with and when it comes to maxi skirts, I usually struggle finding ones long enough for heels.

Remember to enter my HUGE eyebrow package giveaway on my last post, its worth over $50!

{Week 4} Seventy7 Cosmetics Look of The Week= Brow Power!

IMG_2534

This week, my video is all about brows- which, in my opinion, are one of the most important parts of your makeup routine and one of my very favorites. Brows are so important! Please don’t ignore them :). If done right, they perfectly frame your face and… then all is right in the world. As you’ll see in this video, I have REALLY blonde brows, it’s almost like they aren’t there, unless I tint them… which I don’t always have done/practically never have done. Having dark, more dramatic brows are most definitely on trend right now. Having such blonde brows does make it difficult to create dark but also natural looking brows so watch my tutorial to see how I accomplished that… at least how I think I’ve accomplished that :).

Everything I used for my brow routine is from Seventy7 Cosmetics they have every tool necessary to create dramatic, natural looking brows and I am in love with all of these brow products. Make sure to use “WHITJFREESHIP” for free shipping on your order.

Also, stay tuned, I am doing a big brow product giveaway starting tomorrow!!

To be honest, my brown routine is still a work in progress and I love all the help I can get! What are your favorite brow products? Does anyone else have the blonde brow problem? How do you create dramatic, natural looking brows? Please let me know!
