Spring Is Here!

It’s officially spring!  I wanted to share a quick post of this fabulous dress I purchased from H&M.  It was such a great find for only $30 and the perfect look for brunch with your girlfriends.  The ruffles at the bottom added a little something special to it!

I paired the dress with a satin headband (which I love a good headband!) from H&M and white pumps from Zara.  I added a little jacket from Zara as a little touch.  It matched perfectly with my headband.  🙂

(G)OLD & The Beautiful!

Gold isn’t the easiest color to wear!  Sometimes the color can be flattering in evening wear, accessories, pair of heels and other times just a little tacky.

I came across these shimmery gold “genie” style pants from Zara for only $20 and didn’t exactly know how to style them.  They actually sat in my closet for months before I gained enough “courage” to wear these cuties. LoL.

I decided to pair them with a pair of cute gold heels from Zara (click link to view).  Gold heels can definitely add a little pop to any outfit!  These are a great deal, only $49.90!  The shirt is from Forever21 – my go to for simple cute shirts.

I Have To Try This!!

Who loves makeup that doesn’t cost a ton of money?!?  I’m very far from an expert in makeup but that’s doesn’t stop me from constantly viewing YouTube videos from my favorite beauty bloggers.   This is my first time ever hearing of ColourPop and I couldn’t believe the prices!  Lipsticks in all types – Satin, Matte and many more just $6.  Shadow pallets for $18 and so much more!  Oh and I forgot to mention, Free Shipping!

My go to lipstick has been Maybelline for the past few years.  And for foundation I’ve recently started using Maybelline as well.  In the past, I’ve used MAC but wanted to try something new.  It’s inexpensive but most importantly I love how it looks!

I’ve placed my order with ColourPop and can’t wait to share with you ladies!  🙂

Stay Tuned…

‘Tis the Season…

For holiday parties that is!  I’m never one to turn down a party especially when I’m given the opportunity to add a little glam. 😍

Office holiday parties are tough because you want to be chic but also want to have a fine balance of festive and professionalism. 

Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints or add a pop of color!  Leather is also a great item to spice up your look.  Winter white is also my fave as well. So many trends that can be incorporated into your holiday look! Don’t be afraid to be a little non traditional! 

Check out my look below as I decided to add a pop of color to my holiday look with this great dress from H&M! 

Outfit Details: 

Dress | H&M: Under $60

Bag | Aldo Shoes:  Under $40 

Choker | H&M: Under $20

Velvet Revival…

Velvet is definitely a trend for this fall! So many celebs have been photographed from velvet dresses, tops, jackets, chokers and even shoes. 

With that said, I decided to hop on this velvet train while on a visit at Zara. I absolutely love this body suit and it just so happen to be velvet. 😍. It was only $19.99! I paired it with a similar color high waist skirt also from Zara for $29.99.  

Forever21 also has some great velvet items for low prices if you’re looking to try this trend without breaking the bank. 😉

Check it out below. 

What do you think? Will you by trying this velvet trend for the fall?
