No Shady Beaches

No shady beaches!
That's my mantra for the summer. hah
Who doesn't love a good graphic tee? I can tell you that I sure do!
This one is no exception. I actually borrowed this one from my mom and decided to knot it since it was a little big. 
I paired it with one of my favorite skirts and love how it became a kind of monochromatic look. I bought this skirt back in November or December and it is definitely a piece you can wear all year. I stuck with a neutral color, but it comes in about 13 other options. (I really want the coral for summer.)

What are your thoughts on graphic tees and monochromatic looks? I would love to hear them in the comments below.

Pop of Colorblock

Happy Tuesday!
This is a very special Tuesday... it's the last Tuesday of my 20's!! I guess this whole week is special because my birthday is on Saturday! 
That's right ya girl is turning the big 3-0 on Saturday!! (I still can't believe it.) 
We'll talk more about that later. For now let's talk about how this is my current favorite outfit! 
Y'all know I love a good white top and denim bottom outfit. You might also know I love to throw a little pop of color in every now and then. These shoes give me all the heart eyes. I bought them at the beginning of quarantine and have been dying to wear them ever since. I was able to wear them about a month ago to brunch (before things got bad again in FL) and got a million compliments on them. The heel is low so they are one of those shoes you can wear all day and night! 
I also want to take a minute to talk about this tank. I now have it in 2 colors and need at least 2 more! (I really just need it in all the colors available!) 
It's so soft and the fit is INCREDIBLE. (Same brand as this dress.) I also usually shy away from v-necks because I have a bit of a chest but this one is perfect! Do yourself a favor and get at least one. 

Tank: Parkside Harbor | Denim: Old Navy | Shoes: Lulu's | Sunnies: Quay Australia | Lipstick: Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in It's Happening! | Earrings: Old (similar here & here)

Hope everyone has a wonderful week! I'll be soaking up the last little bit of my 20's. ;)

Gray T-Shirt Dress

Y'all! I am so excited!!
Tomorrow we are finally getting the heck outta Florida! This year was supposed to be a big year. I big year of travel, weddings, celebrations and so much more. Covid-19 however, had other plans. 
Tomorrow we are finally going on a little trip though and I am SO excited! 
Don't worry we are being super cautious and just going on a little road trip to NC and staying at a friends parents second home. We understand that the virus is still very real and not slowing down any time soon. We have seen all these people at some point over the last month so we feel pretty safe. 

Now that I've shared that with y'all, lets move on to today's outfit. 
This is the perfect little t-shirt dress. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. I usually stay away from gray because of sweat but I just couldn't pass this little guy up! 
It's so freaking soft and just perfect for lounging around or running errands. I sized up to a large so it was a little more oversized. 
This is honestly one of my go-to outfits with my favorite white sneakers and black aviators. You really can't go wrong! 

Dress: Parkside Harbor | Shoes: Nike | Purse: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunnies: Quay Australia currently BOGO!!! | Watch Band: Amazon | Lips: MAC Cosmetics Satin Lipstick in Twig wth Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Lip Gloss in Pillow Talk on top

What are everyone's plans for the fourth? We will obviously be in NC and have some really fun stuff planned. I'll share more about it in Thursday's blog post and potentially do a full recap sometime in the next week or two.

Friday 5: Summer Skin Care

Happy Friday!
Summer is in full swing down here in Florida! (Along with coronavirus. Eyeroll emoji!) 
Today I wanted to share 5 of my Summer must haves in the beauty department. 
It was really hard to pick just 5 and I've honestly already started a second list so look for that soon.
For now let's talk about these 5! 

I cut my hair short (by my standards) a few weeks ago and have been obsessed with texture spray since. I have always loved this stuff, but I have recently become even more obsessed. It's really hard for my hair to hold a curl in the heat. Rather than weighing my hair down with tons of product I've been using texture spray. If the curl holds that's great. If not I'm still left with some decent volume and a messy look. 
This stuff also smells AMAZING!

This stuff is so amazing and the price point is even better. We always have at least 2-3 tubes of this in our house. ( I always have one in my beach    bag and one on hand for J to take with him to jobs.) I always feel like sunscreen starts to sting my face when I sweat or get in the salt water. I have never had that happen with this. 10/10 recommend! 

This is such a great brand of sunscreen. I actually tried them out a few years ago with and SPF setting spray. I loved the setting spray so much I decided to try out their sunscreen. I really like the spray version and they have a bunch of other fun sun products. 
It's also clean at Sephora which is always a plus.

This is one of my favorite "foundations" of all time! I love it all year, but especially in the summer. Let me start with the fact that it's actually not a foundation... it's a CC cream. I feel like it's easy to forget that because the coverage this product gives is incredible. It does however, live up to it's name of being a CC cream because it feels really lightweight on your skin. Does that make sense? I don't know, but you need to try this stuff. I put it on by itself if I'm running out on a Saturday or for a beach/pool day where I want to look a little put together. It also has SPF 50 which is AMAZING! 
(I wear shade medium and use this brush)

This is probably my favorite product on this list! If you buy one thing let it be this! It's a little pricey for sunscreen, but I promise it's worth it. I bought it through J's health's savings account last year because we had to spend the money and I am so thankful I did because this stuff is holy grail! It goes on so nice and does not leave any oily residue at all! Part of the reason I hate sunscreen is because I always feel so oily and sticky after. Not with this stuff! Rub it in, wait a few minutes, and you are good to go! 
Do yourself a favor and treat yo'self to a tube of it! (I buy it during the Sephora sale now!) 

What are your summer must have skin/hair care products? I would love to hear about them. Like I said above I have already started a second list. Maybe I will share those in a couple weeks!

Summer 2020 Uniform

Give me all the white tops and denim bottoms!
That has been my go-to lately. I can't stop wearing it. (When I actually put on real clothes.)
I will be sharing a couple variations of this outfit over the next few weeks, but let's talk about this one for now.
This top is AMAZING! I love how oversized it is. The little wordmark in the corner says "FEISTY" which totally fits my personality. I want to get a few more and cut them similar to this Free People tee. (I got the idea from Little Blonde Book. She has a tutorial on her IG.)
I also LOVEEEE these shorts. They are high-waisted but also a really good length. I feel like it can be hard to find high-waisted shorts that don't have your butt hanging out. I sized up one size so they are a bit looser. That's what I usually do with my shorts.
Then I topped it off with this awesome hat and my new favorite sunnies. Perfect summer look in my opinion! 

Top: Aerie (also love this Free People one) | Shorts: American Eagle | Hat: Sun Honey Sold out, but restock coming soon. | Sunnies: Quay Australia | Shoes: Steve Madden | Initial Necklace: Amazon | Other Necklace: Bryan Anthony's | Lips: NARS Afterglow Lip Balm in Orgasm
What's your go-to look in the summer? I love an easy dress or romper, but if I actually want to put in effort I will reach for white and denim.
