Summertime Barbie Girl

After I uploaded all of the pictures from this week's look, the first thought that came to mind was this is total "Barbie doll" style...then I sat for a bit, tried coming up with a more clever title for this little post, and my brain inevitably started playing the "Barbie Girl" song (yes the one from like 15 years ago) on repeat. It literally would not leave my head. So, mental defeat set in and I'm totes embracing it...Barbie girl it is, all. the. way.
This outfit for me is the perfect summer date night outfit. If you've been following my blog (or if you've clicked on the style tab at the top of this page and looked through my other outfits,) then you know, if it's floral print and there's some pink thrown in there, I'm basically going to love it.  The pops of color make it fun, while the shorter cut to the skirt's hem line make it flirty and cute.
The Top and Peplum skirt in the look are both from Forever 21
 This adorable lavender clutch is from Francesca's
No Barbie doll look would be complete with out the perfectly pink "Barbie shoe." Mine are by Jessica Simpson, and though they are quite high, the platform in the front makes them quite comfy.
Thanks for stopping by, see you soon dollface!

Drugstore Lipgloss: My two current favorite formulas

Looking for a great lip gloss, but don't feel like dropping $15-$30 a tube? Me too! I have actually been on the hunt for a drugstore lip gloss that held it's own next to the higher end formulas for a while now and I have FINALLY found two different formulas I feel are worth sharing with all of you! I think that deserves a big YAY!

1.Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

 These cosmically inspired lip glosses were an accidental find for me. I had stumbled upon these bright beauties on a quick trip to CVS when I was just running in for some nail polish remover and happened to spend 15 minutes perusing the cosmetic aisle (typical.) All of the colors in this line bear fun cosmic names like "big bang" and "nova" (two of my favorites.) The pigment in these lacquers are out of this world and give you an opaquely colorful lip in just one swipe. If you are looking for a bright, summer ready lip gloss, I  definitely think the colors offered in this collection make it worth the try. Even though most are vibrant, bold shades they are super flattering on all skin tones making them very wearable for any gal that feels like wearing a bright and fun lip.
Find them online HERE


2.Maybelline The Elixir Lip Gloss

These little glosses have been in my makeup bag for a while, and I have no idea why I haven't shared my thoughts on them with you yet because I just really love them. The colors are soft but noticeably pretty on the lip, and the formula is very buildable; so you can wear just the gloss or layer it over a lipstick. It's offered in tons of different shades and colors so you are sure to find your favorite, or at least one that flatters you. These three shades I'm showing you today are universally flattering on all skin tones, so if you are unsure where to start, I would go with one of these.

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Black & White With a Pop of Color

Being in the southern part of Texas makes for some very hot, very humid days during the summer months, so I basically live in dresses like this one.
I love this little number because the black and white stripes keep things streamlined, while the skater style skirt keeps it fun and fresh. A classic print with a modern twist.

Everything is Gonna be All Bright

Happy Monday Lovelies!
I just love that spring is here and summer is right around the corner because that means bright colors are in all the stores and, if you know me personally, you know I adore any outfit that can bring a pop of color to my wardrobe.
This dress, which is from one of my favorite local boutiques, Four Chicks in the Park (Visit their Facebook page HERE and give them a like!) is the perfect dress for a daytime or nighttime summer date. the bold color is balanced by the loose fit; and the dress is cut short enough to show a little leg in an understated way...like I said perfect for a day with your special someone.  
I went with a neutral, taupe shoe to balance out the look.
These are some of my favorites from Forever 21.
Since the orange dress is such a bold, warm statement, I've paired it with a cool-toned, but equally bright, teal clutch from Francesca's.
A few stackable bracelets and your favorite watch are all you need to finish off this look. When wearing bold colors, it's usually best if you stick with minimal jewelry.
The Invicta watch was a wedding gift from one of my sweet uncles, the "hello" bracelet is a steal from Forever 21, the chain-linked bracelet is J. Crew, and the adorable taupe bow bracelet is Vince Camuto.
