My Daily Looks – What I Wore in June

My Daily Looks – What I Wore in June

It’s a wrap! And with that, the year is halfway over! Whew! That was fast! I had a busy month – I transitioned into my new position at work, had a fun weekend visit with a dear friend, spent a crazy Saturday shopping with another friend, enjoyed a girls night out with dinner and a movie, and spent lots of quality time with the hubs in the pool! (when it wasn’t raining..seriously y’all…so much rain!) Here’s a quick recap of my favorite outfits from the month, and my usual tips and shopping ideas.

July Stitch Fix Reveal

July Stitch Fix Reveal

Happy July! We are definitely in the midst of the dog days of summer down here in the south y’all. It’s rainy, and sticky, and hot and humid and just downright hot! It’s usually a challenge to dress for work in the summer months, because it’s blazing hot outside, but freezing cold in the air conditioning. Believe it or not, I actually run a little personal heater at my desk, just to keep from freezing. I’m not complaining though, can you imagine life without AC in the south? No thanks!

July Stylish Monday – How We Style Graphic Tees

July Stylish Monday – How We Style Graphic Tees

I’m thrilled that the theme for this month’s Stylish Monday Link Up is graphic tees! If you follow me on instagram, you’ll probably see me styling graphic tees almost every weekend. I love that they make a statement, look cute and can be styled in so many different ways. They’re just fun to wear!

My Easy Saturday Summer Makeup Look

My Easy Saturday Summer Makeup Look

So here’s the deal y’all. I love makeup. I love blush and eyeshadow and eyeliner and lipstick and lipgloss. Oh how I love me some lip gloss! I really love mascara, though I’m sometimes frustrated with it. (What’s up the new spider eyes mascara trend anyway?) But, as much as I love  cosmetics, my style is more “girl next door” (okay, midlife lady next door) than glammed up diva. I’m more of a Doris Day than a Marilyn Monroe! Though not a cosmetic/makeup expert, I’m going to bravely share my easy Saturday summer makeup routine with you. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy seeing some of the products I use, and might even be inspired to try something new! And fair warning: these are unretouched photos of the real me ahead! So here goes!
