Spring Gingham

 How freaking fun is this dress? When I was shooting it with my Mom I was like I need to reel it in. All these photos are just going to be of me twirling or throwing my skirt. She was like isn't that the point? And I guess she's right. If you're wearing a dress like this you should have all the fun! 
I love gingham for spring and when I saw this light purple option I just had to have it. I originally planned to bring it with me on my trip to NYC, but the weather had other plans in mind so I shot it before I left. It would have looked so pretty in the park with all the cheery blossoms in the background. (Insert here eye emoji here.)
I also have to take a moment to talk about these sandals. I saw them on another bloggers page and immediately fell in love. (I now can't remember which blogger for the life of me.)
Anyway the pearl detail is so pretty and fun. I will definitely be wearing these all spring & summer long. They go with so much and can really dress up a simple jeans and t-shirt look.
Did I mention that both the dress and sandals are under $25 EACH!! You can literally get this whole outfit for under $45!! Such a good deal! The dress is a total Sundress brand dupe too! 

Dress: Shein (also love this one and this one) | Shoes: Shein | Hat: Shop Sunhoney (Snag this hat ASAP! She has had to restock this thing like 100 times.) | Sunnies: Quay Australia | Lips: Ulta Automatic Lip Liner in Wild Berry with Buxom Full-On-Plumping Lip Cream in White Russian

Sephora Spring Sale

 The Sephora Spring Sale starts tomorrow.
If you are unfamiliar with this sale I will break it down below.
This is such a great time to stock up on your favs and try new things. I feel like makeup & skincare never go on sale so definitely take advantage.
Now let me break down for you.
If you are a Rouge member you get 20% off your purchase from 4/9-4/19.
If you are a VIB member you get 15% off your purchase from 4/13-4/19.
If you are a Beauty Insider member you get 10% off your purchase from 4/15-4/19.
You can still sign up if you aren't a member yet and get 10% off.
You can also use your discount multiple times over the event. 
Below I have rounded up some of my favorite makeup, skincare and haircare items. 
These are all items I have used or have in my cart to buy during the sale. 
This is one of my new favorite skincare products.
New nighttime moisturizer. My facialist told me I needed a thicker night cream. The girl at Sephora suggested this one and I like it so far. Haven't been using long enough to really say.
I've been wanting to try this for so long. Think I might finally pull the trigger.
This is one of my favorite masks! 
Holy grail sunscreen hands down! 
This stuff smells amazing and is SUPER moisturizing.
Just bought this to try.
I ran out of my normal Hyaluronic Acid serum and bought this as a quick fix. It's really great especially for this price.
I love this stuff for double cleansing.
Been using this for 2ish years and still love it! The SPF if great and it has zinc, which is what you want. 
This is one of my favorite vitamin C serums. I only bought the other one above to try something new. 

I feel like this gives my hair some extra body & volume.
I've been wanting to try this for so long to see if it actually works. 
This brand is expensive, but I promise it's worth it. I bought it on sale, but when I run out I plan to buy the jumbos. If you are someone that doesn't wash your hair that often it's definitely worth the splurge.
I always keep this in my beach/pool bag. It smells really good and I like the texture it adds.
This is my ride or die favorite product. It says it's a finishing spray, but I use it before I curl my hair. I also just use it to give my hair texture sometimes when it's straight.
This stuff is amazing. I swear you can actually hear it absorbing the oil.
This is my current favorite. I think I have 3 backup cans on my shelf. haha
If you have damaged hair I highly suggest picking this up. I use it as a hair mask once every week or 2 and it helps keep my hair healthy.

This is my favorite brow pencil of all time. I like that it's thicker than the Brow Wiz.
I bought a 4 pack of these during the holidays and I am OBSESSED!!
This is my favorite powder bronzers. I love that it comes with a brush too.
I use this to contour my face and I love it. 
Hands down my favorite lip balm. It comes in a bunch of different flavors. I think I'm going to pick up this new peach one. Or maybe grapefruit. Maybe both. I constantly misplace my lip balm so I can never have enough.
Since my brows are micro-bladed & tinted I use this to brush them up and keep them in place. Swipe on each brow and I'm good to go.
I started using this last year after using loose powder for a long time. I really like the finish this one has. I will say I was reminded a few weeks ago why I stopped using pressed powder... you drop it and it breaks. Ughhh
I just bought this in White Russian and I can't stop wearing it. It has a tingle and slightly plumps your lips.
The colors in this look beautiful. Pretty sure I will be buying this.
I wear this in the color Pillow Talk ALL THE TIME!!! It's my go-to and looks great on everyone.
This is one of those items I always go back to. I have seriously been wearing this since I was a child in dance recitals. It's also hypoallergenic if you have any allergies.
I love this color in this. I think I might buy this pallet as well. Can never have too many eyeshadow pallets. haha
This is my go-to foundation. 90% of the time this is what I am wearing in photos.
I have shared this highlighter a lot recently. If you get it I highly suggest Champagne Pop or Opal.
I've been wanting to try this for a while. I love my Shape Tape, but it's always good to try new things.

What are you looking forward to snagging during the sale? I have mostly makeup in my cart, which is somewhat surprising because the last year or two I feel like it's been mostly skincare. Time to treat myself I guess. haha
Happy shopping!!

Beach Vacation Ready

 I think it's safe to say the tie dye trend is still going strong in 2021. And I am definitely here for it. I've honestly always loved a good tie dye piece even before it had it's big moment in 2020.
This year I think we will see it even more as we start to move away from lounge wear only. 
Don't get me wrong, I will definitely still be wearing a ton of athleisure, but I am looking forward to dressing up a bit more in 2021.
I saw this dress a few weeks ago when I was browsing for Spring and I just had to have it.
I think the colors are what first caught my eye. It kind of reminds me of a sunset. The silhouette, slit and ruffle detail also sold me on it. These style dresses are PERFECT for hot summer days and nights.
Throw on a pair of flats and you're ready for brunch with the girls. Pair it with heels (like I did here) and you're ready for date night. 
And if you have a beach vacation planned this year you definitely need this dress. It's Summer vacay vibes all day long! (I will be packing it when we go to Mexico later this Summer.)

Dress: Red Dress Boutique currently sold out. Get on the waitlist though. (similar here & here) | Shoes: Target | Sunnies: Quay Australia | Earrings: Amazon | Lips: Ulta Automatic Lip Liner in Wild Berry with Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream in White Russian

Here's hoping there are a lot of vacations in our future tropical or otherwise. And to wearing more dresses like this. 
I hope everyone has a great week! I am super busy at work because I'm off all next week. I'm actually heading on a trip so stay tuned to see where.
Thanks so much for reading today's post!

Easter Dresses

I can't believe Easter is this weekend. It totally snuck up on me. 
I actually meant to share this post a week or two ago, but I must have missed it on my calendar. If it snuck up on you too, I've got ya covered.
Since Easter is literally 5 days away I've rounded up some dresses that will all make it in time for the holiday. 
Happy shopping!

Graphic Tees

 Let's talk about one of my favorite clothing pieces... the graphic tee. 
I feel like these have been popular for a while, but have really taken off in the last couple years. Especially the band tee. 
When you think about it they are super versatile and you should definitely have a few in your closet. (Or way more than a few if you're me. I honestly think it was one of my most bought items of 2020.) 
You can pair them with jeans and heels like I did here for a classic laid back look. Throw on a blazer and you're ready for the office.
Pair it with a skirt and hat and you're off to brunch. A graphic tee and leggings is my go to uniform when running errands. 
See what I mean? The possibilities really are endless.
I bought this one because both my parents are HUGE Grateful Dead fans which means I grew up listening to them. And TBH it is the softest freaking shirt I have ever felt in my life. 
Sadly it's sold out but I linked some similar options from the same retailer and did a whole round up of graphic tees.

Top: Abercrombie sold out (same shirt with different graphics here. Yes, it's mens.) | Jeans: Abercrombie | Heels: Steve Madden | Sunnies: Quay Australia | Lips: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick and Lip Lustre both in Pillow Talk

Other Graphic Tees I love:
I have a different version of this and LOVE it! 
Need this! 
This has been in my cart forever. I am debating the LS or SS version.
Greatest show EVER!
Love the tie dye.
Another one that's been in my cart a while.
Everyone and their mom has this shirt, but I still love it so much.
Such a cute little graphic for summer.

Do you love a good graphic tee? How many do you own? Tell me all about it in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out today's post. I hope you enjoyed it and have a great weekend!

Summer Knit Romper

 Y'all I'm so excited to share this romper with you today.
I first saw this on Something Navy and was immediately influenced.
I will admit I was a little hesitant after the fact because our body types are V different.
When it arrived in the mail and I tried it on I still wasn't 100% sure. After wearing it around the house for a little it really started to grow on me. 
It's super comfy and I am OBSESSED with the color. I think it will look so great with a tan this summer. I also like that the legs are really wide so it will be nice and breezy when it starts to get hot. 
I kept things real simple with flats and sunnies this day since we were going on a bike ride. 
This is such a great piece to add to your summer wardrobe. 

Romper: Free People | Sunnies: Quay Australia | Shoes: Tory Burch | Earrings: Target | Lips: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk with Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Perfect Nude on top

Here are a few other pieces from Free People that I have my eye on too.
Obsessed with this. I want it in all the colors.
Great for travel. Endless options.
Looks so cozy.
Comes in a ton of colors. Love this Olive option.
