Summertime Sadness


I used to not be the biggest fan of summer. I mean, it really hasn't been that cool since I was in high school and didn't have a job. Remember the days when you could stay up late, sleep late and do whatever you wanted, every single day for two months? Yeah, I barely do either. But this summer has actually been pretty great which makes me sad for it to end. But, I also see the positive side: Fall is my favorite season, so it has to be just as great, if not better!

Enough about me, onto this end-of-summer look (and yes, I know there's technically still like an entire month left before the season changes, ha!).

Makeup Transformation: From Jaime to Taylor



Normally I'd say my makeup abilities are pretty strong, but when you compare my skills to my sisters–I quickly head to amateur status. From covering up skin concerns to a beautifully sculpted contour and stunning eye, she definitely is my go-to when it comes to beauty tips and tricks. I had literally just stepped on a plane after a work trip when she pitched her video idea to me, and I was immediately all in. Unshowered and not a stitch of makeup on my face, I headed to her apartment to film this video and die laughing the process.

Rosy Outlook


It's been a weird summer, plain and simple. It's been hot, humid, rainy, cold and all of things wrapped up into one IN ONE DAY. Needless to say when I snagged this top earlier this summer, I thought I wouldn't have a chance to wear it until fall. Yes, it's lightweight, and yes, it's flowy, but if you've ever tried to wear long sleeves on a humid day, then I'm sure you understand my hesitation. No one has time for that.

Summer Perfection


This summer has blown by and with the hustle and bustle, I feel like sharing my summer style has fallen to the wayside. In fact, I know it has, sorry! (Who am I kidding, no one really cares, ha!) But, I'm back in blogging action today with my latest SheIn find and it is pure summer perfection.

Bright Whites


For some reason I'm laughing right now with this title, "Bright Whites," because all I can think about is Barry Kripke, the character Big Bang Theory with the speech impediment. I have no idea how that popped into my head, but you're welcome for my brief sidebar.

Summer Stripes & Bows with SheIn


Remember that one post I did not too long ago where I confessed my undying love for all things striped? Yeah, I told you that you would be seeing another striped top momentarily. When I received this striped top from SheIn, I quickly unwrapped it and immediately added it to the collection of blue and white stripes tops in my closet. Let's just say it felt right at home.

Summer Style with SheIn


I've always viewed style as an expression of your personality but if you want to get really granular, you might view it as an expression of your mood, which tends to be much more fluid. Reversely, a good outfit has the power to alter your mood, hopefully for the better. Whoa, getting a little deep there, eh? Let me tone it down by saying something like, "I mean, how could you not be happy wearing an outfit like this?" There. I feel better now.

If you follow our blog, or my Instagram, you know I love edgy looks. In fact, they tend to be my fave but every once in a while I whip out a super girly look and surprise everyone, like I did on this particularly gorgeous, sunny day. Or else, maybe I was just trying to make myself feel better about having to go to the doctor to get my blood drawn–where I was then called 'Barbie', a 'doll' and had about 8 people tell me they loved my shoes, ha!
