Weekly Favorites - Miami Pink & Bare Minerals!

Leopard Fold-over clutch - Clare Vivier  //  Nail polish - Forever21  //  Headband - J.Crew  // Magazine - People StyleWatch 

Summer is officially here! And I'm thrilled! Although I'm a busy bee working everyday, my downtime is spent outside soaking up the sun, at the beach, riding bikes, and just lounging in the grass....ahhhh :)

Here is what I'm loving lately:

Forever21 nail polish in Miami Pink

bareMinerals - The First Resort set 

It's the perfect all-in-one summer make-up set. It's a three piece set which includes: a gorgeous coral lip gloss that lasts and looks really good on everyone, a triple packed bronzer/highlighter, and a awesome super soft fan brush!

I use it last after I've put on the rest of my make-up and it's essentially fool-proof.

I dust the fan brush across the bronzer and lightly apply it to my face where the sun would naturally hit it, and slick some gloss on and go.

I'm obsessed. And from the looks of it so is everybody else since it's flying off shelves! So hurry and buy it before it's gone!


A little off topic, but I just have to share how incredibly thankful I am that I live here and have a view like this...the pacific northwest is a gem.....

Have a fabulous weekend all!

Happy Fourth of July!

Hope you all had a super fun and memorable July 4th! I spend the day with family and friends at our big annual fourth of July/family reunion celebration. I had a wonderful time and the weather held out for almost the whole day, which is big deal here in Washington state where our weather is often bipolar; sunny and warm, one minute, gray, raining and windy the next.

"Merica bracelet" in my etsy shop here.

Did a little 4th of July shopping!

There were some really good sales and I couldn't pass up this hoodie and stripe headband for $19 at Forever21. Distressed jeans are from American Eagle.

Slipped on my hunter boots and headed out in the boat with my handsome fiance' and pulled crab pots for the July 4th feast. It was gorgeous and sunny out on the water and we scored 12 keepers! YUM.

Wishing you all a fabulous long weekend! :)

3.1 Pashli - Look for Less

Just a quick "look for less" post. And if you're a Phillip Lim fan you may want to keep reading.
I recently stumbled upon a practically identical backpack to 3.1 Phillip Lim's Pashli.

The only real difference; 
One boasts a steep $895.00, while the other sports a cool $29.80 price tag.

A Monday Post of Random

A quick random post.
I've been under the weather for a while (hello sore throat and bronchitis), ugh. I'm still not 100% but I'm on the up-and-up thankfully and am slowly getting my energy back. Yay! And the sun's been out a lot lately and that's always a good thing, the sun is so energizing!

My new obsession is my new Clare Vivier leopard print clutch. OBSESSED. 
It's gorgeous. It luxurious. It goes with EVERYTHING.
It was gifted to me by my super thoughtful and sweet fiance (thanks again babe) and I've been carrying it relentlessly since it arrived. If you're looking for a new clutch, look no farther, this is the creme de la creme.
Buy it. You'll LOVE it!

Flip Flops: Tory Burch  //  Skirt: American Eagle  //  Clutch: Clare Vivier  //  Sunglasses: Target  //  Bracelets: Kaizen Fashion Project ETSY shop

Since the weather's been warming up I've been drinking more water, but plain water can get old quick, so  I've been adding sliced strawberries and cucumber to my iced water and it's SO SO good!
Really refreshing, I recommend trying it.

Lastly, can we just talk about how AMAZING these sandals are?!? Ah-Mazing. I'm head-over-heels crazy about them and need them in my life and on my feet. Currently they're sold out, but
I'm stalking Shop Candy Apple like a vulture waiting for them to restock.

Happy Monday y'all!

When What You're Up To Is Not A Lot

I haven't been this sick in years! Seriously I think it's been 3 years. I have been sick as a dog all week with bronchitis, so I've been mostly living in my bed with only quick trips for the necessities. Today's the first day I'm starting to feel alive and human again thank God and the suns out! So I'm super stoked about that. I watched much of fashion week on my laptop in bed, did some online shopping and a little work, but that was the extent of my productivity. Oh well.

This adorable furry guy is a great companion when you're sick.

Yes this was part of my breakfast yesterday. Although I did have toast and fruit too. 

Lastly, I got these beauties in the mail yesterday and I'm so happy with them! Obviously because I'm a sickie I have yet to actually wear them out and about but you bet when the delivery guy showed up I sprinted to the door and put them on and walked all around my house in them! Yes, with my pajama bottoms on. HA! :) 
I'm really wanting the red color as well so I'm hoping Sole Society will restock them in my size (8 if you're reading this) soon.

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and are NOT sick :)

I'm so honored and flattered to have been nominated for a Liebster Award by the incredibly lovely and generous Mrs. Jaclyn Leblanc! A Liebster Award is an award given by a fellow blogger to a group of other bloggers who may have a smaller following but tons of potential for growth! Woo hoo! Thank you Jaclyn!

Mention the person who nominated you with a link to their blog
Answer the 11 questions asked
Nominate 11 others bloggers with a smaller following but lots of potential 
Create 11 of your own questions for them to answer
Notify your nominees

The Liebster Award is a fun way to discover new bloggers and learn more about your favorites. Here's my answers!

1. What's your go-to outfit? Hands down a favorite pair of jeans, a simple tee, flats and a hat (baseball, cloche, I like to mix it up!)

2. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night owl. I stay up blogging, watching old black & white films and/or reading almost every night. It probably doesn't help that I drink coffee and tea in the evening ;)

3. Who is your favorite designer/brand and why? This is a tough question! I'm going to settle with Michael Kors for the simple fact that he creates beautiful pieces that are polished, timeless, effortless, and iconic.

4. If you could live anywhere, where would you go? I love where I live now in the Pacific Northwest, I'm 5 minutes from a beach in every direction and it's very scenic, but the weather is suspect 8 months of the year, so I would'nt mind living in Hawaii or Mexico during the cold months here ;)

5. Heels or flats? I prefer flats because I can run around in them, and they don't hurt my feet like heels do after wearing them for a while. I like mid-height heels, but flats are my favorite.

6. What's your favorite hobby (besides blogging!)? Sleeping in.

7. What's your signature scent? Jessica Simpson's "Fancy Love". It smells AMAZING.  

8. How would you describe your personal style? This question always makes gets me flustered haha. I want give a simple answer but I feel like such a style chameleon it's difficult to! What I wear really reflects my mood. If I'm feeling laid back I wear jeans, and some flats or kicks and a tee. If I'm feeling girly and fancy I wear sequins and heels. It really hinges on my mood :)

9. Tell us the best restaurant you've ever been to! Nothing stands out specifically, although this little Mexican joint on the water in California had amazing food and service so I'm going to say there even though I don't remember the name, HA.

10. How long have you been blogging? Roughly 3 years.

11. What is the last concert you went to? A local concert by the water and it was super FUN!
