aero now

dress c/o Aeropostale // shoes: Old Navy // bag: Steve Madden // watch c/o Feral Watches // belt: Forever21 // hat: Forever21 // bralette: Victoria Secret 

Do you ever have those colors that you love but aren't too sure if you like them in clothing? That was me recently with the color teal.  I tend to keep to colors such as white, pink, grey's warmer softer colors if you wish. When I found this dress from Aeropostale I fell in love with the brightness of the teal against the navy and dark red.  I started to think of how I would style the dress and to my surprise I had a lot of teal items that would complement it. This dress along with the color teal quickly jumped to the top of my favorite list for the rest of summer and into fall!

On another note, Aeropostale has just launched their AERO NOW campaign. As we as fashionistas grow and change year to year and season to season Aeropostale has decided it needs to do the same. You can check out their on trend, high quality products on their website. PS if you don't already know they even have their pretty little liars collection too!!

 dress c/o LuLu*s // shoes (on sale!) c/o LuLu*s // bag (on sale!) c/o LuLu*s // necklace (SIMILAR) c/o LuLu*s // ring c/o LuLu*s // lips: MAC 'pink pigeon' 

Just because July is coming to an end doesn't mean summer is over... ohh no it's not! We still have August and for most states September to keep the tanned skin, highlighted hair, and late night eats alive.  Today I am pumped to bring you look two from my all-American summer look featuring LuLu*s.com

There is something about sundresses that screams american girl in the summer, I mean listen to every country song! When I came across this Lucca Couture floral print dress I fell in love instantly with the cut outs on the sides and the beautiful bright colors. This dress is perfect for any backyard bbq with family & friends or for a summer date night with your main man.  I kept the  jewels simple (I don't like a lot of jewelry in the summer, it gets sticky) and added a pop of color in this navy cross body bag. 

I love this country girl get up, a little farm girl meets city life which is perfectly okay for my summer style. I can't wait to wear it all. the. time! You can see more of my all-American summer style with LuLu*s HERE on this post. Stay tuned next week for another look!

floral + lace

As the temperatures heat up to 112+ here in Arizona I have been wearing less and less clothing trying to stay cool. When I came across this fabulous tank from Forever21 I fell in love instantly and added it to my wardrobe. It is super comfy, light fabric and I dont have to wear a bra.... score! I never and I mean never go braless but this tank doesn't allow for a bra and to be honest it is so much comfier without one. I paired it with distressed denim shorts and my new heels from lulu*s and tada I was date night ready!

all-american summer part I: featuring lulus

swim suit (HERE) & (HERE) c/o lulus // pants (HERE) & (HERE) c/o lulus // vest (SIMILAR): Forever21 // flip flops: Old Navy // floral crown (HERE) c/o lulus // necklace (SIMILAR) c/o lulus // lips: MAC 'snob

I am so excited to team up with LuLu*s to bring you an all-american summer! So many times we are looking for great inspiration for fancy outfits that we forget summer is usually back yard bbq's, casual ice cream dates, and laying in the sun all day long. I know for me sometimes it can be the most casual of outfits that I struggle with and for summer that is just a must!

To kick off the all-american summer my first look is water ready! This can be beach, lake, pool, creek... you name it! I am just looooving these Roxy white linen pants. They are super light, go with everything, and comfortable as can be. Summer is boat season and we all know boating can get a little chilly towards the end of the day so these pants are great for a little warmth, shade from the sun, and  make a perfect cover up.

Swimsuits are hard to find, especially ones that flatter your body shape. My advice: take your time finding a suit that fits you perfectly. I have been obsessing over this floral bandeau string tie suit for some time and am thankful to add it to my b-suit collection. The strings are perfect for adjustment so I can wear it a little looser for tan days yet pull it tight for wake boarding runs. 

There you have it, my casual water look for this all-american summer. I can't believe July is almost over.... we have one full moth to keep rocking our looks! Happy Monday blogging beauties!

Enza Essentials: summer bff's

I know I have said it before but I LOVE Enza Essential products! I have done a few posts perviously: One here about my daily skin routing and also one here on how I use Enza for protecting my skin this summer. I am excited to show you today 2 more of my Enza bff's. The vitamin C serum for the morning & the glycolic serum for night.  For these summer days it is super important to keep your skin exfoliated for new cells to appear + hydrate the new cells as they come in so your face keeps that all summer glow.

Now through July 31st you can code: SUMMERCLASSIC for an additional 25% off both the vitamin C & the glycolic serums!! Seriously ladies I would not be posting about this product if I didn't believe in it all. It's amazing and my skin is receiving all the benefits!!

Birthday Wish List!

bday wish list

My 28th birthday just so happens to be a little over a week away and I am so excited! Thinking of what I want this year was difficult. I am so thankful for everything I have in my life that I am feeling so content that even a wish list was somewhat difficult to put together. I said somewhat.... I still managed to scrap one together don't you worry!

Long Live Summer

shorts (HERE) c/o Sears // shirt (HERE) c/o Sears // jacket (SIMILAR) c/o Sears // bag (HERE) c/o Sears // shoes (HERE) c/o Sears // sun glasses (HERE) c/o Sears // earrings (HERE) c/o Sears // lips (HERE):  NYX 'Indie flick

Summer is hands down my favorite season! So much so that I never want it to end. The sun, the shorts, the long nights & light hair, t-shirts & bright bags... all just warm my heart. I am excited to be teaming up with Sears Style to bring you the Long Live Summer campaign! I had a blast going out to the different Sears stores and finding the perfect outfit that I can wear the rest of summer and also into the fall. 

As the summer months start to fade away, the days still call for shorts & t-shirts but the evenings are cooling down so a casual neutral light jacket is a wardrobe must. I chose this black cargo jacket but you can also look at this one here for a different color. As much as I love neutrals (denim, black, white) summer is nothing without bright colors! When I was browsing through the amazing Kardashian Kollection a my local Sears I came across this stunning orange handbag. It is amazing. Seriously a must have! It is so large inside I can fit EVERYTHING! Wallet, make-up, hairbrush, my DSLR camera, sunglass case... see I mean everything. 

To polish off my look I added leopard slip on shoes. These babies were only 20 bucks..... I think I have worn them everyday since I purchased them! They are great for summer night walks and will transition perfectly for casual day attire for the fall months. 

The hottest trends, celebrity style and fashion tips you can afford to try.

pineapples + sades of blue

 shirt (SIMILAR): Elie Tahari // shirt (HERE) c/o Style Lately // vest (SIMILAR): Forever21 // clutch (HERE) c/o kensie // shoes (SIMILAR): Forever21 // necklace (HERE) c/o LuLu*s // lips: MAC 'lady danger'

I think there might be a little obsession with pineapples going around this summer and this tank from Style Lately definitely satisfies the craving! When I received this shirt (PS style lately has the BEST graphic tees)  I knew right away that I was a. going to love wearing it, and b. had outfits already popping into my head before it even arrived. I choose to do a little mixing of the blues to give some depth and not to much of a "matchy" vibe to my all white outfits. That's all for me on this hump day, hope you're having a great week blogging beauties!

4th of July

Happy 4th of July!

4th style: Maxi

dress: Classic & Bubbly // shoes: Ardenes // bag: Steve Madden // necklace c/o LuLu*s // lips: MAC 'Lady Danger'

Nothing can beat a maxi dress for this summer heat, especially not for a holiday weekend like the 4th! This patriotic dress is perfect for a backyard bbq, sitting on the grass for fireworks, or even a dinner date out. I threw my hair up in a bun because honestly it is like that most of the time lately + it gives a laid back casual look to the maxi. I am not very good at the sock buns or cute top knots so I just simple wrap my hair around my finger twirl it, into a bun, and secure with a rubber band! Happy Hump Day loves!
