California Tan + The Perfect Tan Giveaway

The Perfect Tan

While we haven't been able to be in the sun this summer thanks to rainy weather, we "hear" it's summer elsewhere around the country, right? One of the things we look forward to most is getting a golden glow and laying out poolside, or grass-side for those without a pool. Unfortunately laying out in the rain hasn't gained us the perfect tan for summer, so we've turned to the next best thing–sunless tanning products.

Our friends at California Tan offered to let us try out their amazing line of sunless tanning products and we couldn't wait to try them out. And by friends at Cal Tan, we really do have a friend there–fellow Indy blogger, Ashley from FashionatelyMe. You may recognize her from one of our past meet ups. She's always got a beautiful golden glow!

California Tan sent us the following products to try out and we are happy to offer the same set to one lucky reader! See our review of each of the products below:

Face Perfector: We love the face perfector for its gradual glow and the water resistant sunscreen feature! We tend to have trouble keeping color on our faces with all of the washing and scrubbing being done, but this one definitely helps keep our face radiant and glowing.

Instant Sunless Lotion: This gel lotion is perfect for the novice and advanced sunless tanner. It's easy to apply lotion is chock full vitamin C and vitamin E and smells great. You definitely can't go wrong applying this lotion.

Leg Perfector: Shaving in the summer can totally be a bummer when you've just applied sunless tanner a few days prior. We especially love the leg perfector lotion because it's not only moisturizing and provides a golden glow, but it boasts a shave minimizing formula that inhibits hair growth so you can go longer between shaves. Added bonus is the touch of caffeine to firm up those thighs, and who wouldn't want that?

Gradual Sunless Lotion: Pina Colada, anyone? We use this beach vacay in a bottle to maintain our sunless glow and help extend the life of our tan. This little product also has a touch of caffeine in it for a toned appearance and even a natural colorant blend to enhance your skin's color and conceal imperfections. This is a win-win in our book!

Making A Statement

Let's face facts, you can never go wrong by adding a statement necklace to your outfit. Whether you're in a cocktail dress or a simple jeans and tee look, you can always add a statement necklace for extra style. It's no secret that we love to accessorize our looks, so when we were contacted by Happiness Boutique, we were super excited to work with them. Their pieces are SO fun and definitely more budget friendly than other lines. See how we styled two statement necklaces from their collection:

Kacie's Statement of Style

I couldn't wait to style my statement necklace so I opted to wear mine in a casual look over the weekend (you may have saw this post if you follow me on Insta). I scored this top during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and this mint jewel statement necklace was the perfect complement.

Summer Spotlight | Gold and Black Shoes

As the name of our blog indicates, we are HUGE shoe lovers and are constantly on the hunt for new pairs to add to our ridiculously large shoe closets (hey, no judging!). This summer we are loving gold and black shoes (see a great selection here) - heels, sandals, sneakers - whatever style they are, we can't get enough! The metallic accents add a fun flare that jazzes up any outfit whether you are heading to a special event or having a casual date night. How amazing is the selection above?!

Shopbop? Sale? RUN!

When Shopbop.com sends out a sale email you run, not walk, to the nearest computer to place an order for the items you've been virtually window shopping. I don't know about you girls, but what I love most about online shopping is my ability to add things to my cart and stalk them. As pathetic as it sounds, I totally use it to remind myself about the item(s) and to see if they goes on sale–or I abandon all reason and buy everything in site. Usually it's the latter of the two. Hey! Don't judge.

Definitely hit up the three-day sale that's will be running until June 25, 2015! Use the code 25MORE to receive an extra 25% off already discounted items. Stop by, your monthly shopping budget will than you, and you'll snag some super cute gear in the process!

Hot Mess Express

Wearing – Top: Anthropologie {old} | Pants: Old Navy | Shoes: BCBGeneration | Earrings: ILY Couture | Bracelets: Olive + Piper | Watch: Vince Camuto | Purse: c/o Shopbop

So let's say there's this fashion blogger who went out of town last weekend and as she was packing to come back to Indy she completely forgot all of her face care products and her makeup. Yeah, that fashion blogger is me and let me just tell you, having all of your favorite products three hours away is definitely not convenient when trying to get ready in the morning. At least I had backup mascara, BB cream and Fresh lip balm to save the day.

With my lack of makeup, I definitely wasn't feeling like I was on my A-game getting ready each day, but I still managed to put together a cute outfit. Even sans makeup, this top is still a personal favorite–even though I can't make the fold lines disappear to save my life. Gah! Toot-toot...all aboard the Hot Mess Express this week!

Electric Lips

Top: SheIn | Skirt: Francescas (loving this) | Shoes: Oasap | Watch: Michael Kors (similar) | 
Bow Bangle: Jane (old) | Love Bracelet: Baublebar (old) | Earrings: Target

I am always on the hunt for fun pieces to add to my closet so when I came across this neon lipstick printed top at SheIn, I knew I had to have it! The shipping time is a little frustrating (okay, it's really frustrating) but I've always loved everything I buy from there and you can't beat the prices!

It's been super rainy here in Indy lately so I knew the perfect way to brighten a typical day at the office was to pair it with a hot pink bandage skirt and fun heels. How cute are these ruffle sleeves?! I got an adorable patriotic themed top just like this that I can't wait to share with you all a little closer to the Fourth!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Summer Spolight | Casual White Lace Dresses

We don't know about you, but one of our favorite colors to wear in the summer is white. Let's be honest, with all the great trends we're seeing right now, nothing beats a classic white summer dress. There are a million varieties of white dresses hitting our favorite department stores and boutique racks, but one of our personal faves is a summery white lace dress. There are a billion and a half reasons why you should have this summer staple in your closet. One of the big points–it's such a versatile piece and you can dress it up or down to fit the occasion. See our fave looks below:

Festival season is upon us and it's the perfect opportunity to break out your favorite little white dress–or LWD for short! Pair with some neutral hued suede heels for the perfect casual and earthy style. Add some flare to this boho-inspired look with a fun tribal tassel necklace, turquoise cuff and of course a bohemian fave, the fringe purse.

If boho style isn't your jam, you can go the opposite route and opt for an ultra ladylike look with this garden party-inspired ensemble. Don this fit and flare shaped white lace dress for a chic, classic look. Add on neutral espadrille wedges, sparkling floral necklace and earrings and a feminine bow hat for added flare. While a snail purse isn't practical for everyday, it's the perfect addition for your demure look.

Whatcha thinkin'? Which style lace dress style do you identify with best?
