Roses are Red, Wednesdays are Pink!

So today I would like to share with you, my lovely followers, all of my favorite things pink!

I have recently switched my morning face washing routine from the oh so expensive Aveda product system to  much more affordable grapefruit themed morning routine!

Summer Styles 026

I start my morning with chocolate chip waffles and my Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub. This oil-free acne wash is by far one of the best fac washes and best smelling face washes I have ever used! The foaming aspect makes me feel like I am really getting clean and removing all of the dirt and oil from my face and the microbeads polishes off the dead skin and really helps prevent my skin from drying out. After pat drying my face I apply a small amount (less than a pump) of my new favorite moisturizer.   Yes to grapefruit has a nice thick, gel-like feel as it is applied to my face and also smells amazing! The best part is that it not only keeps my face at the perfect level of hydration all day but it also correct and repairs my skin! At the begging of this summer I had some small acne scars and had trouble with redness in my T-zone, but now that I have been using Yes religiously, I have a much much more even skin tone!

 

After my daily face washing routine, I head to my closet to find my favorite pink shirt!

Summer Styles 020

I have recently purchased this cute little Lauren Conrad tank from Kohl’s and the necklace from JCPenny’s and spend less than $25 on both! On a lazy day like today I will be pairing this tank/necklace combo with my favorite pair of lightwash distressed boyfriend jeans from Guess.

Lastly, I would like to share with you these wonderful and Oh-So-Cute Urbanear headphones!

I bought these little cuties from Best Buy last summer and they have been with me through every outfit and occasion from camping to carrides!

Refreshing Rains.

All of this summer rain we’ve been having is starting to make me feel like I live somewhere tropical! That must explain all of the bright colors and exotic prints I’ve been wearing lately! Wearing bright and refreshing colors on a grey-skyed day is a great way to lift your spirits.

I bought this beautiful silk top from Lucky Brand before school started last fall. Most of the time I pair it with dark wash skinny jeans and accessorize with my silver and gold watch and necklace.

I got this romper at Hollister since I was recently employed there and got 50% off of five items. I love the color and the simple pattern makes it easy to accessorize.

Last but not least, my tropical tank! I purchased this little beauty at Nordstrom Rack at the beginning of this summer. This top pairs nicely with white pants or tucked into high-waisted shorts.

Sundays and Stormy Days

Today is a me day. My weekend has been pretty crazy so I need to take a day for myself;  I have nothing on my agenda besides facials and painting (Check out some of my latest art projects on my Instagram)

I plan to lounge around in this comfy Free People tee shirt paired with some leggings that I don’t care about getting covered in paint.

I would also like to share my new favorite Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Facial Mask with the world. I use it twice a week to detox and exfoliate my skin. This stuff works wonders and completely refreshes my skin after crazy weekends of running around, sitting by campfires, and falling asleep with my makeup on!

My Free People tee shirt was another Nordstrom Rack purchase and I found my polishing mask at Ulta.

My Definition of Summer

 

 Sum-mer (noun): The time of the year in which you can stop and smell the flowers while wearing your favorite dress

This is one of my favorite flower smelling dresses. I got this romantic little lace Free People dress on sale over spring break at the Free People store in Woodmere, Ohio. The color is nice and warm for summer but can also be carried into the fall.

The photos below are just some that I took in my gardens at home.

Favorite Fall Shirt

I was so excited when I came home with this shirt on Monday! And like always, the first thing I do when I get something new is put together as many outfits as possible with my new article of clothing! Usually I can find one or two good outfits for each new item, but this time I was blown out of the water! This shirt goes with almost every pair of my favorite pants and ALL of my favorite jewelry!!

Outfit Under $20

Yesterday I went to Plato’s Closet with a whole bin of clothes that have been taking up valuable space in my closet. I dropped off my bin and then started looking through racks and racks of other people’s used clothing until they were done evaluating mine. Most of it was geared towards middle-high schoolers (lots of Aeropostale, Hollister, and PINK) and there were a lot of summery clothes (which I promised myself I wouldn’t buy any more of). I really didn’t think I would find anything worth my time… Until I came across a pair of brownish Juicy Couture corduroys. I love corduroys!! And these ones were only $10 and in great condition! I had to try them on!  but of course I can’t just try on the pants, I needed a shirt to try them on with. I walked over to the shirts and and fell in love with the first blouse I picked up! A multicolored/abstract printed blouse from The Limited!

I really didn’t think I would find such a versatile and classic outfit at Plato’s, they tend to buy trends and fads geared (they had loads and loads of tribal print, racks upon racks of black and white, and countless high-low dresses and skirts).

I also purchased a necklace from a store in the mall for a mere $3 that matched my style and this outfit perfectly!

I ended up spending around $18 on this outfit and only $15 at Plato’s (originally $22) because they decided to take only three articles of my wonderful clothing and offered me $6.50.

 Also, check back tomorrow to see more outfits that I put together with my new shirt! I swear it goes with everything in my closet. I know I’m going to get a lot of use out of it this fall!

My 4th of July #NOTD (Necklace of the Day)

I bought this blue (maybe slightly purple BUT MOSTLY BLUE!!) necklace from Nordstrom Rack a couple months ago and didn’t pay more than $15ish for it! It’s perfect and fun for summer and I was able to wear it with a lot in the spring too!

The shades of blue in the necklace and shirt go well together  and aren’t too obnoxious for daytime. I plan to complete this outfit with a pair of high waist shorts, a pair of red sandals, and my favorite watch.

For night time I want to wear something a little bit more exciting and festive(It is America’s birthday after all)!! I decided that I want to pair the pale-ish blue necklace with a more vibrant shade of red!

I purchased the red and blue tank from Kohl’s on Monday.

the red Free People dress is a year or so old and was purchased from Nordstrom Rack.
