.neutral pumps for spring.

neutral shoes .. spring 2016

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

today I'm sharing a few of my favorite neutral spring and summer shoes! I have told you in previous posts that I've been on the biggest hunt for great neutral pairs that can go with everything! yes, some may be pricier ;) see #4! BUT in comparison to the designer brands like Valentino and Christian Louboutin I've always been dreaming of ;) they're a bargain! 

I've linked a bunch of "designer look for less" options below too most being under $75! a great neutral pump can go a loooooong way in a woman's wardrobe, but if you're not usually in heels, I've also selected a few cute wedges and espadrilles (much more practical for day to day!) 

happy shopping! 

and I hope you're able to find your perfect neutral shoe this spring! ;) now if only my husband would let me get them all! ;) :) thanks for reading!!

.yellow cardi.

get my look : 

 Bohme cardigan, last year // Abercrombie denim // Sole Society espadrilles // J.Crew tee, old (linked a bunch of cute ones) // Target sunglasses // Mac lipstick 'snob' 

 I never thought I'd be the gal that would be caught in yellow. ;) it's never been a flattering color, but last year when I bought this cardigan - I was pregnant (you can find my post here) and I had found the prettiest floral dress in yellow and purple, so of course, I needed something to pair with it. :) and my love for yellow began! A way I spice up a tee and jeans outfit, is by wearing unique tee shirts. I like different textures or patterns that elevate it. or fun shoes of course ;) 

I was taking a picture of the tree behind me and Nash was teasing me to put my phone away, so I've got some funny shots today ;) I'm never too serious! I was also happy we caught Berlin in a picture. She's obsessed with chasing birds and barking at anything and everything so for her to stay nearby was a miracle :) 

what do you think of yellow? and for cute cardigans, you never know when you might need to layer up ;) 

thank you for reading :) 

I always appreciate your support!

.feminine statements.

Forever 21 ruffle sleeve blouse // Abercrombie lace midi skirt (on sale!) // Kate Spade 'licorice' heels // Maybelline lipstick 'born with it' 

 shop similar items ...

this look I wore this past sunday for church :) I love how simple yet how bold and interesting this outfit is. each piece has something special about it. the top - ruffles, the skirt - lace and my heels - the color! I have no additional accessories because I didn't want to overpower such a simple, statement making look. 

I linked a few different ruffled tops for you, I couldn't find this same one online, it may be in stores, I got mine a few months ago. My skirt is on sale right now at Abercrombie and they just got a few new skirt arrivals I'm LOVING! ;) here and here

I'm almost always in some kind of print/pattern so it was a fun break to style some solids, and who doesn't love a good black and white ensemble? ;) 

how do you like to style black and white? :)


get the look ... 

thank you so much for stopping by :) 

have a beautiful day!!

.5 maybelline lip shades for spring.

today I'm sharing 5 of my favorite Maybelline lipstick shades that are perfect for the spring and summer seasons :) I have neutrals and bold colors! there is something for everyone, or everything for someone ;) I definitely love all of the shades and think that MANY people can pull off even the deeper purple toned berry lipstick. it just takes the confidence to rock it - and you can! 

I think it's great to see swatches of the lipsticks .. because trust me. I buy a lot. and I like to have an idea of what I'm getting before I purchase it. I usually do as much research as I can (sounds silly I know!) but stores like Sephora and makeup counters allow you to test out their products before you buy so you know what it looks like before you commit. drugstore brands don't have that luxury of offering the testers. so I'll usually go on youtube or pinterest and look up swatches. I always feel like seeing the color on the hand doesn't always match up to what's on the lips. So I've done both. I'm VERY fair skinned. so keep that in mind, because on varying shades of skin - these colors will appear differently. 

Maybelline is definitely one of my very top, top, top rated drugstore brands for lipstick. I have enjoyed each one and while the color isn't super opaque - you can build it to whatever coverage you're looking for :)  

peachy nude

mauvey pink nude 

classic baby barbie pink 

neon coral

deep purple fuchsia 

which color is your favorite? if I didn't list one of your favorite Maybelline lipsticks, leave the name in the comments :) I'm always down for trying new ones! 

:) I hope you enjoyed this post!! 

good luck finding the perfect spring shades for you this year!

 thanks for reading!!

.double stripes.

Target dress, old // Tory Burch espadrilles // Bohme denim vest // Fossil watch // Mac lipstick "Snob"

today's look I wore last night for hanging out at home and just running a few errands. I'm usually always in jeans, so I thought to switch things up and show off my (let's be real here, 'pathetic') self tan ;) I love stripes and I know I don't wear them nearly as much as I'd like. They're an easy print to mix and match, and yes, you can wear blue and black together ;) 

an easy tee shirt dress, espadrilles and my denim vest will be staples in my style this spring and summer so I've linked a bunch of cute options below :) 

 have a great weekend! thanks for reading :)
what do you like to pair with stripes??

.early spring with half tee.

Half Tee cap sleeve layering tee c/o // NY & Co. floral tank, old // Abercrombie jeans, similar linked // Hollister boyfriend cardigan, similar linked // Fossil watch, similar linked // Sole Society heels 

shop this post : 

today I'm excited to share with you a company that is just fabulous if you are in need of great layering tops! Half Tee is simply that ;) it's a half top, so you get the neckline and the shoulders covered, but the top stops just under the chest. I love this, so you don't have a bunch of extra fabric you're either tucking into pants or having to fuss with all day because it won't lay flat under your tops. legit, they're awesome! Half Tee also was so generous and gave me a coupon code for my readers! use "bloom20" for 20% off :) it's only good for 3 days ;) so hop to it! 

I styled this tank with the Half Tee 'basic cap' - so it offers a cap sleeve and a scoop neckline. I threw the cardigan over my tank as it got chillier in the evening :) but I loved that extra pop of color from my Half Tee. They offer a wide range of styles, from lace, to long sleeve. Seriously, there's a style that everyone would love! ;) and what a great gift for yourself since Mother's Day is coming up in a few weeks! 

and if you've noticed I have more shoe close ups than before ... because these are like spring vibes all the way!!!!! they're so pretty (they did give me teeny blisters on one foot though because of rubbing, if the toes were stuffed I wouldn't have this issue, my left foot is wider than my right, so what'd'ya do? ;) ;P I've worn them a few times now and I've learned that if I don't let my toes crawl their way into the toe area - I get zero rubbing and they're perfect! so if you don't mind some toe cleavage this heel is the perfect option for you! 

I'm really excited for this spring season! :) last week we were handling a houseful of sickies :( yuck, me, my husband and our babe all had colds. between stresses involving work, (hopefully) school for my husband and just managing life - I'm eager for days we can spend time as a family and just have some fun :)
