Flat Lay to Life-Styled: It’s a Party

Hey ladies! It’s time for everyone’s favorite post! If it’s your first time reading this I want to say Welcome! I write this Flat Lay to Life-Styled post at least once a month and sometimes twice.  This post is for you to be able to see my flat lay photo compared to the real life- styled photo. This is just for a bit of fun and gives you a cool perspective on how the clothing looks from both views.  I also pick a theme for each one and this one I’m calling Flat Lay to Life-Styled: It’s a Party.  I had lots of events in May and early June and I wanted to share my outfits with you. I like sharing to help try and…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: May Favorites

Hello my fellow fashionistas! This month was such a fun one and I actually had lots of good luck with finding great things this month.  I usually do a post on your favorites for each month but thought I would change it up a bit and show you my favorites.  I am not a Spring and Summer girl by nature so finding great clothing for this season is more difficult for me.  I really have to spend lots of time shopping to find things that don’t just bore me to death.  I love layering and I think it makes outfits more interesting.  In hot weather you can’t really do that so most of the things are onesie pieces like rompers or tee’s and shorts.  My…

How to Determine a Quality Garment

Hey ladies! Happy May! This is my most favorite month out of the year!  April showers bring May flowers right!?  I am finally getting to my second post in my series of shopping posts. The first one was How to Become an Expert Shopper. This one is going to be about what determines a quality garment.  I guess you could say I have a personal interest in this subject.  It is important to me to find pieces that will last and will be low maintenance. Of course there are exceptions to the rule when you are purchasing a trendy item that you don’t pay much for and will not wear the next season. I know we all have these items.  But what I will say…

Play! by Sephora: April Insta Beauty

Hello ladies! It is that time again for the Play! by Sephora Box!  I did something a little different this time too.  I actually tried some of the products last week so I could give you some feed back on them!  YAY!  The funniest part about this box was that it was called Insta Beauty!  They actually put dotted lines around the products on the big sheet so you could place the actual product down and do a flat lay with it! LOL! I have been doing that almost every article.  Thanks for the copy Sephora!  Wish I could have gotten credit for that one.  Anyway, each of the products are supposed to contribute to flawless camera ready results! I have to admit one of…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled : Florals

Hey ladies! April was such a fun month! I ended up with a floral theme for this round of photos.  Of course, there was no plan for that, it just kinda ended up that way.  Makes me think if I really did plan out stuff if it would even come out as good.  Sometimes things are better when they just fall into place, right?!  We are creatures of habit so it just seems to be what happens! I absolutely love the floral prints that I have been finding this year. They are more contemporary and modern feeling as opposed to the grandma floral we are so familiar with.  I feel so pretty and feminine when I am wearing something with floral print! Do you? The…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Black & White

Hey y’all!  When I started to write this post I realized that I had a theme with all of my recent pictures! That theme has been black and white. Actually, if I think about it, a theme seems to appear every time I start to put together this post! So funny! It totally looks planned and I’m really glad that it does, but it is so not! It just happens to turn out that way. I really think it is because the merchandise that is available each month is similar as well. Even when you go to different stores the colors and patterns in the styles emulate each other.  When I worked in retail we would receive collections from designers each month and there was…

Play! by Sephora March Box

Hey girls! It’s the Play! by Sephora box time again! March has come and gone which feels a little weird.  The months just fly by but sometimes the days feel so long! Are you with me? LOL!  I am a little underwhelmed by this box and maybe it’s because I am not a festival person. The theme of it is Festival of Beauty. These samples are geared towards getting you into the spirit of festival season and helping you define your style I also want to say that these posts are always the month after because I don’t get my box until the end of each month!  I really wish I received it earlier in the month but that is just the way life works…
