Kanye…The Creative Genius

IMG_1228

Remember when Kanye shocked the world when he said “For me to say I’m not a creative genius I’d be lying to you and myself”? (insert obligatory eye roll here) He is such a doof. Anyways, it’s just still absolutely hilarious to me, all I can do is laugh about it. And…I’m so glad I’m the only one who finds pure joy in the most ridiculous quote ever. My good friends at Arsenic and Lace found so much joy they made an amazing tee with the quote on it. Could I pass that up? Heavens no.

This tee is just a small example of the totally creative and unique tees that they have in their shop. They “aren’t into rules” and thats exactly what I love most about them. From Gilmore Girls (I mean really, I can’t get enough) to Kanye, this shop has it all. If you are looking for a tee that doesn’t have the typical sayings on it (does “I woke up like this” ring a bell?), then look no further, Arsenic and Lace is your place (I totally didn’t mean to rhyme, but I’m not changing it). The icing on the cake is that the fit on this tee is totally on point, baggy enough but still flattering and comfy as ever. I am absolutely in love with it.

Annnnd of course I have a coupon code for you! Enter in “whitj10” for ten percent off your whole order for the next TWO WEEKS. 

Tee: Arsenic and Lace // Leggings: Victorias Secret // Flannel Shirt: H&M // Shoes: Target

P.S this outfit got me SO excited for Fall. Is anyone else out there a fall nut like I am? Fall fashion is my absolute fave, I wished it lasted all year.

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!)

My Favorite Modesty Hacks // How to Make Pretty Much Any Top Modest

DSC_0264

This midi dress is from Aro and Company (enter in “WHITJ10” for 10% off your whole purchase) and it’s what dreams are made of, the material is soft, not constricting and the length is amazing. I absolutely fell in love with it from the second that I saw it! The back if it is one of the best parts; its so unique, it dips low and has a strap across the shoulder blades (pictured below). However, because of my stand on modesty I had to do a little modesty hack in order to wear this dress. Which is what brings me to one of my favorite topics; modesty hacks.

If your shirt is sleeveless, dips too low in the front or the back, or is sheer; half tees are your answer! These tees are amazing, they will cover just the right amount for you to be modest and the best part is that it won’t add bulk to your outfit as it only covers half of your torso.

Another option for sleeveless shirts are to wear a cardigan over it, you can see one of my favorite tank- cardigan layered looks here. Or my favorite option; layer it with a kimono! You can see how I layered one of my favorite sleeveless tops with a kimono here.

I will be doing another segment soon about my favorite modestly hacks for skirts and dresses that are too short. There are so many options out there and I can’t wait to share them with you!

4th of July is one of my very favorite holidays; BBQ’s, sunshine, fireworks, water fights summer nights and my fave… fun fashion! You can ask my hubs, every year I am on the hunt for the perfect 4th of July outfit. One that keeps me cool, is cute, lets me play hard, and has plenty of red, white, and blue. This year was the year that I finally found an outfit that has it all!

My dress is from PS I adore you, I love this dress, so comfy and so breezy for these hot summer days. My ADORABLE- beyond-words head wrap is from Moxie and Threads, make sure to enter in code “whitjmoxie” for 20% off your purchase! I am honestly 100% obsessed with her headwraps, can you tell?? Red lips are a must for me with any holiday that involves red as a main color….so of course I have bold red lips to go with this outfit. I used my the same bold lip method for these red lips as I do in this video :).

What are you wearing for the 4th of July? I can’t wait to see all of the fun outfits! Thanks for reading!

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!
