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 :).

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!

Perfect Summer Maxi

IMG_0700

I recently found the perfect summer maxi from 3brunettes boutique, this boutique has an online option but they mostly sell their clothes using Jane.com. This maxi is so breezy and flattering, there is a tie that goes around your upper abdomen. Its in the perfect place to create a great, slim looking waist for you. I also love the sleeves, is that weird? haha I love how they don’t hug your arms, they give you some room to move. Happy Tuesday!! Thanks for reading 🙂

I Can And I Will + Seventy 7 Cosmetics Look of the Week {Week 2}

IMG_0757

My favorite quote right now (it rotates, I am kind of a quote junkie) says “We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.” I truly believe that

There is this amazing company called Perle Market that has the cutest shirts with such positive messages on them. I recently got this shirt from them that says “I Can & I Will” on it. This shirt is not only cute, but it truly helps me live by my favorite quote. Its really hard to be a negative Nancy when you have a powerful saying such as that staring back at you all day. Being a women in todays world is tough, we are so mean and so negative to ourselves. We need more reasons to believe that we are amazing, that WE can and WE will succeed, that WE are enough. Because we are, because YOU are.

Now about this adorable, chic, kind of edgy, outfit. The Kimono and the amazing clutch is from an adorable boutique called Magnolia Mill, I love this shop. The owner is so personable and she works so hard to make sure that everyone who buys from her feels like they receive a present when they get their order in the mail. I got three of her clutches at just $10 each! I LOVE them! The best part is that they are constantly running sales, like almost every day, along with free shipping with every order.  Like mentioned earlier, the “I can & I will” top is from Perle Market, their inspirational tops are just tip of the “gorgeous clothes” iceberg, check them out, you will fall in love too… and I have a coupon code!! YAY! enter in “whitjxoxo” to receive 10% off any order at Perle Market. 

My look of the week: As usual everything on my face is Seventy7 Cosmetics. My look of the week this week features their amazing, moisturizing, last all day, lipstick in the color “Fuchsia”. In my tutorial I have shown how to get the perfect bold lip, you can use my method with any color, especially the bold ones…. which are my fave :). This lipstick stays as good as Kat Von D for half the price. Remember to enter in code “WHITJFREESHIP” for free shipping on any orders placed at Seventy7 Cosmetics

Fewf! So sorry for the long post 🙂

This eyeliner stays on all day, no joke.
