Stylish Sundays: Ladylike

I know it’s Monday, and not at all Sunday, but yesterday was my dad’s belated birthday party and I forgot to schedule the post to go live while I was gone.

We are finally caught up to now with my outfit photos. These were taken Last Sunday when I was feeling particularly girly. I seriously think it’s the new hair cut. I’ve discovered I don’t like it any other way but wavy/curly and I find that I’m dressing that way more often.


Top: F21 Belt: H&M Jeans: Gap Shoes: Sam Edelman Bag: Kate Spade Bracelet: H&M Necklace worn as a Bracelet

This top is seriously the last thing I ever bought from Forever 21, and I honestly forgot it was from there until I checked the tag.


Makeup: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, YSL Shocking Mascara, Nars Blush, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer, Marc Jacobs The Lolita Palette, Hourglass Liquid Lipstick


I curled my hair with the Conair YouCurl Infiniti tapered wand and then brushed it out. This seems to be my go to style, it’s my absolute favorite way of wearing my hair since I cut it off. It it’s straight I feel like it’s a little helmet-ish because of the bangs, and if I put it up I just feel weird because it’s short.


I love these shoes! I’ve had them for a couple years for now, and they remain favorites. I always feel very princessy and ladylike whenever I wear them.

Do you have anything that makes you feel special when you wear it?



Black Lace and Kate Spade

I have one last set of photos from before I cut my hair so I decided to post them as my Friday post instead of as a Stylish Sunday’s Post

My favorite Aunt got married on June 21st and I really liked the dress she picked for me to wear.  fashionandhappythings-6398

Dress: Asos Skater Dress in Daisy Lace, Belt: Kate Spade Bow Belt, Shoes: Sam Edelman Calypso Quilted Flats (Similar), Bag: Kate Spade Cove Street Irini (Similar)

I absolutely love this dress, without the belt it’s very 90’s and I plan on pairing it with a plaid shirt and some knee socks and keds this fall.


On My Face: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B10, Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in Chantilly, Makeup Forever HD Powder in Translucent, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush, The Balm Highlighter in Mary Lou Manizer, Marc Jacobs The Lolita Palette, YSL Shocking Mascara, Urban Decay Eyeliner in Bourbon and Dior Addict Lipstick in Dior Kiss

I curled my hair with a large 1 1/4th curling iron.


Nails: Butter London Scandal

And here’s my favorite Aunt and I after the ceremony:


It was wonderful seeing someone I’ve always looked up to get married to an awesome guy. And how gorgeous was her dress? Red’s her favorite color and I love that she bucked the trend of wearing white and instead wore what made her happy.

Have you been to any wedding’s recently? What did you wear?


Stylish Sundays: Summer Love

The pictures were taken before I cut my hair, and I have a few more sets of photos that were pretaken that will go up soon.


Tank: Aerie Summer Love Tank, AE Jeans from Years ago, Sandals from Wet Seal also really old Necklace from a website that no longer exists.

I bought the Summer Love Tanks from Aerie to do yoga in, but the other day was laundry day so I pulled this tank out of my drawer, these old jeans and grabbed random shoes from my closet, then I decided it was cute and couldn’t remember why I never wear those jeans. Then I sat down. These are Low Rise Jeans, and I just haven’t been a fan of them since freshman year of High School.


On My Face: Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, Makeup Forever HD Setting Powder, The Balm Frat Boy Blush, Benefit Watts Up Highlighter, Marc Jacobs The Lolita Palette, YSL Shocking Mascara, Hourglass Lush Extreme Sheen Lipgloss

I found a random bottle of the Vita Lumiere Aqua in the back of my drawer the other day that still had some left in it. Wearing it really made me miss it, and I can definitely see repurchasing this again very soon.


I braided two small braids on either side of my head, twisted some hair from next to each braid loosely around them and then pinned them together at the back of my head. I finished it with some Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. I really liked how it turned out and am interested to see how this style will look with my short hair.


My Nails were Deborah Lippmann’s Blue Orchid, which is my current favorite blue polish.


And a close up of my sandals. On my toes is Zoya’s Robin.  I bought this polish because I saw it on Aria on Pretty Little Liars and she’s one of my favorites. Spencer’s my other favorite.

What’s your go to laundry day outfit? Or are you like me and just do laundry when you realize you have nothing you normally wear left?

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Review


I’ve been using this for a while now. I can’t remember exactly when I bought it, but it wasn’t too long ago. However I am already dreading the day that I run out of it, because I absolutely adore it. I think that this is either better than or at least equal too Chanel’s Vita Lumiere Aqua. I haven’t used the Vita Lumiere Aqua in a long time, so I’m not positive if it beats it, but it is a possibility.


I love what this foundation does to my skin. It makes it glow and the coverage is lovely. It’s definitely light and perfect for spring and summer. It hasn’t broken me out or caused me any skin irritation. It’s just been absolutely lovely.

If you’re in the market for a tinted moisturizer for this spring, and you like a radiant glow, then I fully recommend this foundation.


Stylish Sundays: Okay, Okay

A while ago I professed my love for The Fault In Our Stars and all other things written by John Green.

Well I when I was wandering around Barnes and Noble I found this shirt, and normally I don’t buy tee shirts that have to do with books or movies or anything like that, but I just had to buy this one.


Normally I wear a large in Women’s clothing, but this is a boy cut shirt so I wear a small. I know because my husband is a Medium and his shirts are too big on me.



I wore it with my favorite black H&M pants and my new Valentines socks from Target. It was comfortable and perfect for curling up on the couch and reading. (Which I have to say was another John Green Novel, haul and reviews coming soon.)


On My face: Nars Tinted Moisturizer, Hourglass Hidden Concealer, The Balm Hot Mama, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer, YSL Shocking Mascara, and Chanel Glossimer Satinette Lipgloss.

I’m actually a really big fan of this shirt, it’s comfortable and has exactly the fit I like in men’s shirts.
