Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone! I am really excited about today's post because it's the first post in a new series called Friday Favorites. It's basically what it sounds like, I will be sharing a handful of my favorite things with you all, from fashion to beauty and lifestyle. In the past I have done similar posts called What I'm Loving Lately, this will be very similar to those posts, but the will be every Friday! I thought it would be nice to share little things that I'm enjoying with you all on a weekly basis.

So to start things off, I want to tell you all about my favorite nude Mac lipsticks (hence the above image). I went to Mac recently and picked up two new nude colors, the first one is Velvet Teddy - it's perfect to layer with darker lip liners. The second one is Viva Glam II, this has been my go-to color to wear to work.

Soy candle from Target in the scent Sea Blossom - a fresh light scent.

I just got this dry shampoo from Influenster, so I have only used it a few times, but oh my goodness... it's the BEST smelling dry shampoo I have ever used! I will definitely pick up the full size bottle.

These sandals from Jcrew Factory are easily in my top favorites for the week, they are so comfortable and they are on sale for $35!

I was at Trader Joe's last week and saw these gorgeous ranunculus flowers, they were only $6! The only other place I have seen them at is Beet and Yarrow in Denver.

This skirt has pockets, so it's obviously a favorite :) But really the colors and print are so pretty!

 I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have a great FriYay!

Gingham Dress


This look has two of my all time favorite things: red lips and gingham! I think they are both classics that nearly anyone can pull off. My go-to red lip is Mac's Mac Red, it's just the prefect red and it doesn't dry out your lips. Onto this gingham dress, I picked it up about a year and a half ago from Old Navy. Nearly every time I see gingham dresses I have to try them on, I have been wanting to get an off the shoulder gingham dress, like this one. By the way has anyone ordered from Boohoo? I'm curious if your experience was good or bad, I'm thinking about placing an order soon.

And lastly these shoes are AMAZING! They are incredibly comfortable and go with so many outfits. I haven't seen them in store, I ordered them from Target's website and they fit perfect, definitely true to size.

Spring Style

Can you believe that it's the end of April!?! This year has been flying by! We have been having amazing weather here in Colorado lately and I've been loving it. Recently I picked up a few new spring items, like this scalloped tank top and floral skirt. I have been really into yellow florals prints for spring lately, like this top, this skirt and this dress. P.S., I'm wearing a new faux tanner and it is seriously the BEST! I'm planning on sharing a review on the product soon.

Floral Bell Sleeves

Happy Friday eve! I hope you all have had a great week so far. I just got back from a short local work trip, this month has been so crazy with work! But I love being busy, so I'm not complaining :) Onto this look, about a month ago I placed an order with Forever 21 and this top was one item I snagged because of the bell sleeves and great price. You probably have already notice, but I am obsessed with bell sleeves lately...  now I have my eye on this top.

Affordable off the Shoulder Dresses

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! Lately I have been loving the off the shoulder trend. When there is a trend that I like, but know may only last for a short period of time, I look at affordable stores like Forever 21, Target and Asos. Below I have linked some of my favorite off the shoulder dresses that won't break the bank.

Front Porch Relaxing

 Lately I have been working on our outdoor spaces, including our front porch. I have slowly been adding pieces to the decor. First I found the bench, then large planters, next was the pillow and lastly was the accent table. I will be posting more photos next week and talking about where I found everything, so stay tuned! But I finally feel like it's coming together and we are starting to utilize our outdoor spaces when the weather is nice. On to this look, I recently picked up this adorable off the shoulder top (it's no longer on their website, but this one is very similar and I have linked more below) , it has really cute back details with buttons. I am really loving the off the shoulder trend, I think I will be embracing it all through summer!

Spring Dress + Block Heels

I am definitely a dress girl. I love spring and summer because I get wear dresses for work and play. This dress is one that I could easily wear to work or on the weekend. I have probably said this before, but I love how easy dresses are, it takes the guesswork out of getting dressed in the mornings. I'm also slightly obsessed with the block heel trend! I saw these sandals at Target and was delighted to find that they are super comfortable. I brought them on a work trip a few weeks back and they were perfect to wear for day and night. Plus there are a bunch of colors to pick from!

My New Favorite Sweater

I hope you are all having a great week so far! We have been having a taste of spring lately and I have been loving it, but it's supposed to be cold and rainy here in Colorado tomorrow, so I thought this look would be the perfect rainy weather outfit. I picked up this grey belle sleeve sweater from Zara while I was in Amsterdam and I have probably worn it at least three times since. I couldn't find it on their website, but I found a lot of other options (that are on sale). I also found this one from the Gap which is really similar, but the bell sleeves are bigger!

JCrew Factory Try-Ons

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you may have seen this post. Well I absolutely love this dress and have worn it a handful of times for work. I love that it's available in coral and blue!

Okay, I CANNOT say enough good things about this top. The material is super high quality and the fit is really nice, plus the ruffle sleeves are adorable. Yes, I bought it :) And these jeans were also another winner for me! They are really comfortable and my favorite type of wash, beware you may need to size down - I'm normally a 26 and I went with a 25.

I am a sucker for a good shirt dress and this one was a favorite. It's cinched in the back, so it creates a nice waistline. I tried on a 0 and it felt a little tight around my hips, a 2 probably would have been just right.

I really loved this dress and I almost bought it, but decided against it. If you like shift dresses you will love this one! I just felt like I needed something that had more shape to it.

Again this top is a great find. FYI, the stripes are navy, not black.

This top was pretty, nothing too crazy about it - it would be cute for work. The jeans were adorable! They are called the Destructed black skinny jeans, I loved the distressed hem. I would recommend sticking with your regular size, the 26 fit perfect.

On my way to checkout I saw this tank and I grabbed an XS (without trying it on) hoping it would work for me. When I got home and tried it on, it was a perfect fit!
