Flat Lay to Life-Styled : Summer Wrap Up

Hey y’all! Can you believe it is August already?!! Not only that, but it is also time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe!! This makes me very excited because fall is my favorite season. Since it is just around the corner, I decided to wrap up my summer picks with my favorite post that brings my flat lay photos to life!  Honestly, I am excited to be done with summer clothing and moving on to new and exciting fall things! These were some of my most liked outfits for summer and were perfect options for all activities from casual to dressy.  Since this is a special post and ending my summer recommendations, I decided that there were six outfits, instead of five, that were…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Nordstrom Purchases

Hey ladies! I am so excited to share my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases with you!  This was actually my first time shopping the sale and I was so very excited!  I made sure I got the Nordstrom credit card early so I could participate in the card holder week.  I had just found out about the sale last year and did not have a card to participate at that time.  Boy did I miss out and I thought to myself ” I will not miss it again that’s for sure!”  I really thought when the next week started for the public I would be fine but I was wrong. Everything I loved sold out! Yes, SOLD OUT! I want to explain to you why I love this…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Simply Summer

Happy Summer everyone! It is definitely here to stay for a long while. We definitely have to make the most of it!  I thought this was just the perfect time to talk about summer styles.  This Flat Lay to Life-Styled post is called Simply Summer.  I thought these outfits were all perfect for looking good and staying cool in this summer heat.  If the shorts are too short for you than imagine the outfits with a skirt or longer shorts.  They will work with either. I am giving you my personal versions of these outfits but you can make whatever alterations that are necessary for you to be comfortable. The Sassy Kimono What a better way to dress up some denim shorts than with a…

Play! by Sephora June Box

Summer is in full swing and the heat has definitely turned up wouldn’t you say?!  I don’t know about you but I have to make sure my makeup products will hold up in this heat wave!  Sometimes I even need them to last all day if I have an event planned for the evening.  Not only are long lasting makeup products important but oh my gosh anti frizz products are a must! My hair gets so frizzy in the humidity and the more I can minimize it the better.  Throwing it up in a bun is sometimes all that I can do for it to look good. This month Sephora sent products in the Play! by Sephora June box that try to help combat all…

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…
