This tribal print top from Olivia Wares was so easy to style, I fell in love with it from the second I saw it. It has just the right amount of tribal print and just the right about of detail.

You Better Believe I Wear Olivia Wares

IMG_0962

I recently found this company through Instagram called Olivia Wares they have beautiful, unique, fashion finds in their boutique and I truly enjoy browsing their shop… I do if often.

In this perfectly cool and fun summery outfit I am featuring their floral leggings. Guys, these leggings are as soft as butter and (as you can see) I am a girl with curves and these have plenty of stretch to perfectly cover my curves. I didn’t feel like I was bursting out of them AT ALL (which is not that easy to find when it comes to leggings and my bod).

Ready for the best parts? I am giving away one pair of leggings from Olivia Wares this week so stay tuned for the details on that. ALSO, I’m all about beauty on a budget so I have a killer 40% off coupon code for you to use on anything in their shop! Enter in code “whitneyj” but act quick because this is only good through this Sunday 7/12. UPDATE: Code is working now :). Happy Shopping! I hope you love Olivia Wares as much as I do :).

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??

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!

{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!
