The Four Pairs of Shoes You Need This Summer

I’m a shoeaholic, but what female isn’t? I’m sure if I bring home one more pair of black boots, my boyfriend might kick me out.

Today’s post is about the shoes that you need in your closet this summer (or even year round) and I’ll let you know why you need them!

hmprod

 

Powder Pink Sneakers from H&M $13

I love sneakers because I feel like they can add some spunk to your outfits. You can dress them up or down, wear them with socks, or without (if you want smelly feet, but hey, I won’t judge!) I think these powder pink sneaks are perfect for summer and will compliment any outfit. I would definitely wear these with some lace topped socks (like these!)

silverstrappysandals

 

Silver Strappy Sandals from H&M $13

I’m not a flip flop person, I just feel like they’re weird shoes so I like to stick to sandals. (I know that sounds strange). I think sandals also look better than flip flops do, but that’s just me. I ain’t hating on the flops, they just aren’t my thing. These strappy sandals from H&M are super cute and inexpensive. I love the silver finish in these because they’re a little bit different. I think these would look cute with a flowy dress, or even a nice casual outfit.

Double Up Faux Leather Block Heels from GoJane $17

These are the cutest sandal-heel hybrid. (I recently purchased them for myself and I can’t wait for them to come in). I think these lil’ heels will spice up any outfit and I personally will be wearing them with my summer dresses. You could dress up a casual outfit and look like you spent lots of money to look cute, but you didn’t. If I end up liking them enough, I might get them in black too. I think these could also work in spring too. They are a must have!

slingbackboots

 

 

Faux Suede Slingback Booties from F21 $30

These are the perfect going out shoes! The heel isn’t too high, so they will be comfortable. They even have a cute peep toe so you can show off your fresh pedicure. Everyone needs a good lil’ black pair of booties for every season, and these should be your summer go-tos. I need to get myself a pair like these!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Thanks for much for reading, as always <3

Spring Outfit Inspiration

by

Spring will be here before we know it, and I may or may not be counting down the days until… Spring is one of my favorite seasons because it’s not too hot or too cold, I also feel like a lot of good things just happen during spring. Anyone else?

I put together a few outfits on Polyvore that are totally spring appropriate and really cute. I hope you get some inspiration from these outfits, tag me on twitter or instagram if you do!

 

Addison

 

This one is called Addison and features mainly black clothing, which may not seem spring like but some people just feel more comfortable and confident in darker colors (me included). This is a very simple outfit that you could pull off with things you already have in your closet! I’m totally loving the Nike Roshes as everyday shoes (although I don’t have a pair myself). I think they’re very stylish and popular now. I kept the accessories simple, just a ball cap with a cheeky saying and a chic pair of sunglasses.
Laura
This next outfit is called Laura, which is inspired by girls on my campus who wear relaxed clothing but dress it up with accessories. I’m LOVING the boyfriend jean trend that I need to get my hands on a pair (or 5). The tank top adds a nice amount of color and keeps the look relaxed, since it’s flowy and not tight fitting. I’ve also noticed a lot of people wearing white converse, which are very cute but I feel like I would get them dirty within an hour of wearing them. Rose gold is also a trend lately that I’m digging, so the watch and bracelet are perfect to show off your girly style.
Claudia

 

Damn Raeanne, back at it again with the boyfriend jeans. (I’m sorry, I saw the chance and I just had to take it.) This is also a very casual outfit that is a little more on the girly side. I think the open knit cardigan is super cute and is a spring staple piece for me, it would also make a great beach coverup in the summer! Dual purposes, people. The nude top is also a staple for me because nude (just like black!) can go with anything and everything. Dress it up, dress it down, go out in THE nude, whatever makes you happy! I added a three layer necklace to this look too, which are also super popular. My favorite youtuber Aspyn has been seeing wearing a three layer necklace lately (p.s. I need one). The shoes are a cute pair of loafers in a light brown, but you could switch them out for a different pair of flats, or even heels if you wanted. And of course, the beautiful boyfriend jeans.
NUDE

 

I’m not going to lie, this outfit was totally inspired by the beautiful Carli Bybel. I’m loving the nude trend and also the long jackets/cardigans, I think they’re a great piece to have in your closet. The lace crop top is simple, but elegant and will add a girly vibe to your outfit, or maybe I should say more feminine since that sounds more grown up. I’m a huge fan of dark wash jeans too, I think they make you look a little bit more put together than light wash jeans (which to be honest, is pretty much all I have.) The shoes! I love shoes and these heels are giving me life right now. I love the wood heel/platform, very chic and stylish and I love the ankle strap. Lastly, a pearl/marble-like clutch with gold accents is really cute and easy to grab and store everything you need with you to take on your day or night.
What outfit would you like to rock? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
I have a few more posts coming up soon-ish! I just have a lot of school work lately that I need to get done because school obviously comes first 🙂

Tj Maxx Haul + About my Friday Night

by

Hey guys, how was your Friday? I guess mine was pretty good, would have been better if I could have stayed in bed all day but unforunately I couldn’t. I woke up around  9:15ish am, then proceeded to lay in bed and play on my phone until about 10:20 (I TOTALLY LOST TRACK OF TIME). I started to get ready for the day and spent a lot of time on my makeup since I had extra time that morning, my class didn’t start till 12:30. I watched some YouTube videos while getting ready and then headed to the dining hall on campus for around 11:30ish. I ate a rather unhealthy meal (I don’t like the food here, so I opt for pizza and other bad options). I went to my Typography class that lasts about 3 hours then stopped at my mail box before coming back to my room. I had a package from ColourPop and I immediately started drooling! (Look for a ColourPop Haul/Swatch post sometime next week). I went back to my room and relaxed for a little bit before hopping in my car to go meet up with my sister at UNOS.

I’m living on campus at the moment, so I don’t talk to my mom or sister as much as I’m used to so it was nice to get to catch up with her, especially since she just returned from a week long trip in Florida. I got a raspberry lemonade and the fireball whisky bbq chicken melt (omg, it was to die for). We ended our early dinner with a deep dish sundae then headed to TJ Maxx for a little retail therapy.

I love TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I usually end up with about 50 pieces of clothing on my arm before heading to the dressing room, then after trying it all on I only end up liking about 3 of the things I grabbed. Does this happen to anyone else? I feel like everything always looks better on the rack. Plus, I’ve noticed that it’s common for clothing to be so see-through lately and I hate that. Anyways, I did end up finding some goodies, so here they are…

bdg

 

The first thing I got was this BDG green, navy blue & grey button up t-shirt that resembles a flannel. It is on the longer side, but I’m all about that hobo-chic look so I don’t mind it. It’s a soft cotton material, so not a traditional flannel. I think this would look really cute paired with a pair of leggings (since it is long enough to cover your butt) with a v-neck tank or shirt and a pair of vans or the ever so popular white converse. I picked this bad boy up for $9.99.

 

blackv

 

 

The second thing I got was this super flowy & deep v-neck black tank. It also has a super low cut back and is sort of see-through, but I just thought it was too cute to pass up. I could see this as a beach coverup (but when do I ever go to the beach?) or it would be great to pair with a thick lace bralette (since it is so low cut). This tank could pretty much go with anything and I paid $6.99 for it.

 

 

 

greyv

 

 

The next thing I got is this super flowy & soft v-neck tank that’s in a soft charcoal color. I’ve never really seen v-neck tanks (unless I’ve been looking in the wrong places my whole life) so I was pumped to see this. I think it’s super cute and could go with numerous outfits, I think I’ll probably be pairing it with the plaid/flannel button up that I mentioned above. This is from the same brand as the one above, Tresics, and it was also $6.99

 

 

siennasky

 

My style is obviously very diverse. Somedays I want to wear all black and somedays I want to show that I can still be feminine too. I saw this shirt and immediately fell in love before even trying it on. The print is so cute I can’t handle it. I love the muted tones of the floral print and the main color is black, which literally goes with everything. This is a v-neck blouse/top/thing that has two layers, a sheer black one that is a little bit longer than the top. It’s really flattering on and looks great with a cardigan over it. Would also be great on it’s own! This is from the brand Sienna Sky and was $12.99

 

So here are some things that I picked up that weren’t clothing related. I really didn’t realize how much stuff TJ Maxx had, it was incredible.

albaI usually take my eye makeup off with a cotton round and coconut oil and love that method, but since I wore a full face of liquid foundation today, I didn’t want to put coconut oil all over my face especially because I’ve been having a lot of minor break outs lately. I was planning on getting makeup remover wipes anyways and saw these in the cosmetics section of the store. I’ve wanted to try these ones out but didn’t feel like committing to a full pack so I bought this 10-wipe pack of the alba botanical facial towelettes for $1.99. (I must say, I really like them so far so I probably will invest in the larger size. The cloths are SO soft on my skin. I love them.)

 

elfI’m really addicted to makeup…it’s a serious problem, but no, I don’t need help…yet. Since I’ve yet to find a cruelty free mascara that I *love* yet that also fits my budget, I wanted to try out one of elfs mascaras. They had a few different kinds of their mascara but I wanted something that would lengthen and add volume to my lashes in one so I grabbed this one for $2.39 (not much less than how much they cost at CVS). I haven’t tried it out yet, but the brush kind of scares me since the bristles are spaced far apart, and that usually means clump city. The handle of the wand is also very long and the part with the product is tiny…I’ll update you and see how it goes babes.

 

coffee2 coffeeLastly, I saw these K-Cups and sort of gasped. Coconut and mocha are my two favorite coffee flavors, and they are together. as one. in k-cup form. Am I dreaming? I still don’t know yet. I’m super excited to try these out and they only cost me $7.99 and they are $10.99 at Target, so I saved $3. I’m hoping these are good, my sister said they were so fingers crossed.

I also picked up a new body wash (I forgot to picture it). It’s from the brand Everyday Coconut and is in the scent coconut mint…holy crap. I love anything mint and if I can smell like a mint, I’m all over that. Mint just puts me in a better mood, aromatherapy at it’s finest. (I want one of those aroma diffusers!) I used it tonight in the shower and ugh. It’s my new favorite. It retails for $12.99, but I paid $4.50 for it cause it was on clearance. It’s cruelty free, natural and had a whole bunch more of goodness written all over the label. I might have to go back and pick up the rest of them that were on clearance cause I like it that much.

So that’s about all for my Friday night. After I got back, I hung up my new clothes after photographing them all for you. I took a shower, watched some YouTube videos, ate some chocolate with my suitemate Melanie and I’m already ready for bed at 10:27 pm. I am a literal grandma.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. If you did let me know in the comments below, and let me know what other kinds of posts you want to see in the future! I have a few more review posts for you coming and also a ColourPop haul with swatches for you. Also, when I reach 1,000 followers on Bloglovin, I will be doing a giveaway, so please stay tuned!

Thanks for reading. I hope you had a good day and night and I hope your weekend goes smoothly. Eat some Ben & Jerry’s for me.
