Spring & Summer

Why am I writing about tie dye you might ask?! Well, I purchased the cutest tie dye sweatshirt at TJMaxx and noticed that tie dye prints were going to be a fun trend for this spring/summer season. This is a trend I think any age can wear so I think it’s worth talking about. I really like fun pieces you can add into your existing wardrobe without it getting too complicated. Tie dye is just that! Tie dye clothing became popular in the 1960’s and 70’s.  I personally recall tie dye being popular again in the 90’s along with the frizzy hair and parachute pants!  I will welcome back tie dye over the other two any day! Not all trends that come back are even…

Are you ready for Spring/Summer 2020?!! I am not ready for it to get hot outside but I am certainly ready for a change in my wardrobe!! When you take a look at these amazing spring/summer colors below you will be dreaming of the season to come! I might say this every year, but the Pantone Colors for Spring/Summer 2020 are so stinkin fabulous and the best yet! The Pantone Colors of the Season are chosen by the Pantone Color Institute.  Each season 12 colors and 4 neutrals are chosen based on the top colors that New York fashion week designers will be showing in their runway shows. The colors represented each season trickle down into mainstream everyday fashion that we will be purchasing in…

Hello there friends! I am so sorry I have been MIA for a month! Life has been a little hectic around these parts!  I have been working on something that I have wanted to do for a couple of years now and I am finally doing it! You will find out what it is in a few weeks and I am beyond excited to share!! I was also out for a week because I was chosen for a sequestered jury on a criminal case.  Let’s just say that was the most interesting thing I have ever experienced in my life.  I am really glad to be catching up and feeling normal. So enough about me!  I want to tell you about an awesome shoe brand…

Hey there! I just have to show you guys all the outfits I created with this awesome leopard slip dress.  I purchased this at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it is my favorite item from the sale right now! I think this is something that any woman could wear and in any season.  If you are not into the leopard print it was also available in a floral. I think you could also find a slip dress that is a solid color and it would be just as cute and versatile. I hope this Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Leopard Slip Dress post will give you some inspiration on how to put some outfits together with any midi dress like this one. One of the biggest…

Hey guys! I recently tried a new beauty product and was so excited that I just had to tell you about it.  You know I love trying beauty products and I am always on the hunt for the next best thing.  Silk Therapeutics sent me this Complete Gel Facial Cleanser for me to try before it was even available for sale!  They did not ask me for anything in return for it but I loved it so much I just had to tell you about it. I wrote a post in December of last year about some products I tried from them.  That post is very informative about Silk Therapeutics and gives you some great details about their products; which are one of a kind.…

I know the average person can not afford a designer bag or shoes.  I am one of those people.  I also have a hard time with the amount of money women’s clothing retails for; which comes from my many years of retail experience.  I know how much mark-up is applied to merchandise and it is astounding!  Since I have been out of the retail world it has been very hard to purchase things at full price. I will purchase at full price; I just really have to love the item and think it’s worth the price. My favorite item I have splurged on are my Golden Goose Deluxe Sneakers. These sneakers have been on my want list for a few years now! Everytime I would…

Lake life is the best life don’t ya think! I grew up going to the lake and it will always hold a special place in my heart!  Whether it’s the lake, beach or mountains, we all have a place we love to go.  I go to the lake to see my parents every year around my birthday which usually falls on Memorial Day weekend. We try to go the weekend after Memorial Day so we can skip all the crowds.  This year I took advantage of the scenery and took photos for the life-styled version of these outfits. My mom was so kind to take them and did such a great job AND we had fun doing it. Summer is definitely here and a cool…
