swim week – night 1

It seems insane that swim week was two weeks ago, I feel like a year has passed since the nonstop chaos of MBFW Swim! I’m not complaining though, I thoroughly enjoy swim week. I had such a sweet setup and some amazing brands hook me up throughout the week. First of all, I hit up the FORD Artists beauty lounge for a little pampering and glamming (amazing, and I wouldn’t have to spend the time doing it later either). Here was my look thanks to the glam squad there:

summer break

Though my school years are behind me, I know kids around the country are on summer break. Which makes me a little jealous, not gonna lie. Times like this I remember why I considered becoming a teacher.

I am certainly not a school girl anymore, but I can dress the part. This plaid skirt is so adorable, and I actually got a matching crop top to go with it. Add d’orsay flats since the hemline is a little short and toss on my favorite faux leather backpack and voila. It’s like I’m 17 again. <3

TGIF!

black // pink // blush

Some days, getting dressed is a total pain. This morning was one of those days! I slept in, and by the time I was up and moving I didn’t feel like wearing anything in my closet. I probably tried on five different things before just feeling defeated and putting on some comfortable favorites. I know stylists and other sites recommend picking out your clothes the night before, but I have never really been able to do that.

Skater skirts are easy, and you can’t beat a slub tee for a casual chic look. Throw on some sky high gladiator heels and the look is complete. These sandals were actually a recent contest winning — they are so comfortable and slide on to fit like a glove with the elastic bands. Definitely could walk a mile in these! Lucky for you the sandals are on SUPER SALE: orig. $99, marked down to $47.99, now take extra 20% off!. Amazing! They are also available in black.

I feel like I rarely rock a high pony, but I have to admit, I have really enjoyed whipping my hair back and forth today! And it’s an easy and stylish way to beat the heat. I like to run a flat iron over the pony to make it look a little more sleek. I also like to coat a little stylish polish over all of my hair to tame any rebellious little flyaways.

Add a hot pink lippy and go!

black & white

When it comes to easy outfit planning, few things treat me as well as black and white. Not to mention I am a total sucker for animal prints and faux leather. An easy hump day look to combat the sporadic showers and deathly hot highs.
