Okay so I’ve been doing lots of online stalking in regards to Summer clothes and I felt like it was time to bite the bullet and actually venture to the mall to see these picks in real life. My thoughts exactly every time I step inside…..
Before I dive into it I got so many questions about the pink skinnies yesterday.
Well clearly Nordstroms was listening and loves us. They just put those exact ones on major discount! Like 40% off! Still an investment pair but J Brand holds up incredibly well and I promise you will be wearing them on repeat! Scoop it before all the sizes disappear (that always happens to me when I ponder a sale purchase!) Find them by clicking on this link! (that is to help my non blogging friends….anything that is pink click on it ;-)
I really don’t love going to the mall because of well…..people. However I thought going late on Sunday before closing would lead to less crowds…..wrong.
Anyways my first step was Bare Minerals because I heard their new liquid foundation came out. Those houdinis magicians were back at it again but I was good and only came out with the things I was looking for…..plus two additional products. What that said I am obsessed with the two new additions. First one is this
bareMinerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
My skin is super sensitive and usually doesn’t tolerate gritty exfoliators without turning my face a nice shade of red. However my skin has been super dry and the girl who did my makeup pretty much told me “yeah out of all the products….you need this one for sure”. It sloughed off the dead skin and my face was super smooth, brighter and not irritated. You mix it with a little water and it turns into a paste that gently exfoliates. She also said that people mix it with things like greek yogurt or honey and make a mask with it…..I mean sounded kinda weird but I’ll let you know maybe on one of my solo nights. You can find it here.
bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer Cream with SPF 30
I haven’t found one primer yet that hasn’t immediately broken out my skin. This one changed that theory. Completely evened out my skin tone, has the perfect hint of color and has SPF 30. For during the week I have been using this with just a swipe of bronzer and it’s plenty of coverage and color. Oh and a little goes a long way! This should last forever. Check it here.
Then I made my way to Sephora to exchange a mascara I never used and bought another one of these. Have you tried it yet? It is so amazing!
Then I made my way over to Forever 21. I mean please tell me why you bring your screaming children in there????
It ended up being worth it because I got my hands on some of the pieces I have been coveting online. Alright I’m telling you this now. The online store and I have a love/hate relationship. I love it because I don’t have to step over screaming children in the store. I hate it because everything I love sells out immediately. Like just disappears off the site. So I recommend if you like it. Buy it now before it goes away forever.
I was in the market for some Summery no fuss shirts. Like throw them on with some shorts and off I go kind of things. I hit some jackpots.
First this top. Doesn’t it look super high end? Like just scored it from Anthropologie? Nope it’s from F21 and it’s $15.80. Imagine it with white shorts or linen pants? Find it here. Runs true to size I’m a size small in this one.
Remember this tank?
The black one looks way better in person….the white one shows lots of wrinkles. If you have a steamer then yes…..but otherwise it might drive you nuts. The black one on the other hand…..amazing. Looks very expensive, great drape and fits perfectly. Of course it’s not online anymore. Keep an eye out for it to come back online or brave your store (I found it crammed in-between two other shirts #sheerluck). For $13.80 it’s a total steal! Runs true to size I am a small in this one.
love the color and the open back. In real life….the material is super wrinkled. I can’t imagine if you sweated a tiny bit….would not bode well with this shirt.
My absolute favorite find? This shirt. It just came back into stock (naturally). Please try to ignore the awful shorts they paired it with….makes the back look so wide when it really isn’t!
I am obsessed with all things open and interesting backs. Let’s see it in real life.
I wore it with a strapless bra or a sheer cami would also work. Love it and less than $15. I paired it with short shorts and heels. Check it here. Imagine with a big clutch…perfect for Summer brunching!
Do you need a perfect black dress that fits incredibly well, looks super high end and is appropriate in length for once? Then look no further. I love the tiny cutouts on the top. Also super affordable! Check it here. Look how well it fits! I’m stalking the blush one to come back in a small. Would be amazing for all things bridal showers.
Then because I love to torture myself I went to Nordstroms on the way out. I love that store. Picked up a few things including this maxi. It’s on sale! Basic black maxi’s will be on repeat this Summer!
With this fringe necklace.
Oh and with these sandals because I love all things Toms and aren’t they so cute? It is their newest style and are so comfortable!
Last thing. I just got this case.
I love it. I wanted the iPhone in gold but my upgrade is like not till forever. Oh Amazon to the rescue. It is thin and the lock button on the top is seriously lightning fast. Check it out.
What things have been on your radar? What things are you on the hunt for? Let me know I love a good challenge! Can’t wait for some confessions tomorrow with Kathy! So good for the soul to cleanse like that.
p.s I am now going crazy trying to find engagement picture outfits. What do you like the best? Short dresses? Maxis? Colors? Bridal white and lace? See going crazy! xoxoxo
p.p.s I just heard Mark yell out “she doesn’t need a large fry and ice cream?” What the……oh okay he just heard my neighbor order that at midnight…..and so the thin wall continue. With that I hope you have a great day!
