Spring Styles to Wear Now


Is it just me or is 2019 passing along quickly? Welcome to March which is said to come in like a lion and out like a lamb. Sometimes fashion seasons and the weather don't match up but the fashion show must go on! While I'm waiting for the weather to catch up I'm wearing some new spring items with some added warmth now and I'll wear them without the layers later. Here's just a few examples of how you can take spring items and start wearing them now.
 
 
One of my favorite items to wear is a loose tunic - they are comfortable, cute and flattering. While I love a tunic with skinny jeans right now it needs a little extra layer for warmth so I'm topping this tunic I picked up at the Southern Women's Show with my utility jacket. When the weather warms up I'll either wear with the jeans alone, white pants or even a khaki skirt.

I came across this pink dress I just had to have it - it's so fun and super flattering. To wear it now I'm wearing a nude tank and panty hose (yes, they are still a thing people) to keep add a light layer for warmth underneath. While I feel like in the spring and summer the loose style of the dress will be perfect I added a black belt and black heels to add some structure without taking away from the natural flounce of the dress.

My next item was something I picked up in Atlanta when I stopped by the Draper James store. I am SO excited that Draper James is officially size inclusive but I've had a feeling this was coming after the Eloquii collabs. I went into the store thinking there would be other dresses I liked more but this floral cotton number was just so cute on I had to have it. Right now I'm wearing with  boots and a long sweater  (you could also add tights if it's really cold out) but once the weather warms up I'll keep it simple with some wedges and bamboo bag.

I also have this Draper James dress I bought on sale last December. Since gingham is always in style for the warm weather months it was too good of a deal to pass up. Right now I'm wearing with heels and a blazer for not only warmth but also a little work friendly look but when the weather warms up I'll let the dress stand out on its own.

Basically it all comes down to layers, of course not every spring outfit is going to look good layered up so it's definitely something to play around with but I hope this post has given you some ideas to get you started.
 
 
All my wear it later looks feature a bamboo bag and open toe sandals - that's not because I didn't want to bring a bunch of items to my photo shoot - I think these are great items to make items look current. Both round and the arc (what I'm carrying) look to be making a comeback this season so you really can't go wrong with your bamboo bag shape.  I got my wedges from Old Navy last year but I did find some similar styles currently available.

  3. I love that you styled pieces that can be used even if it is a little cold still! And the accessories you chose are lovely! The bag, the bandana and the green earring earring 😍😍😍

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Zyto Scan Review

Recently I received my first Zyto scan. And I know most of you reading this are thinking, what the heck is a Zyto scan??? 
There's a graphic below but basically a Zyto scan is a device to read the bio-markers of the body (there are 76) and provides feedback on "out of range" markers and recommends products as a result. The Zyto scan does not diagnose or treat medical conditions, that's what doctors are for y'all. Because I received my scan at a Young Living class, my results were for Young Living products. 
The scan is painless and easy, one simply rests their hand on the cradle like so and watches a quick video on the process: 
This is me getting my scan 
A diagram of how it works 
After a few minutes received my results! Of 76 bio-markers 19 were out of balance, which isn't bad. I've really been making a push to focus on my health so I was pretty pleased with the results. 
Here's my report: 

I really love how in addition to recommendations the report discu…

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!
Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

Thank you, Thank you very much

Every time I hear that sending thank you notes today will set one apart I'm a little shocked, I know plenty of people who send thank you notes. But I also probably know a few who do not and just don't want to admit it. If you're ever in doubt about when to send a thank you note or need some ideas to get you in the habit than fear not, I am here to offer you some advise. Most of this I feel is common (apparently semi common) knowledge I've gathered over the years but I'll also offer you some special practices I have developed. I've also got some pictures of the type of card that might be appropriate. All examples are available at Tiny Prints. Job Interviews Seriously, it really shocks me that people don't do this. If you want the job, send a thank you note. I usually keep some in my car and will write it and take to the post office as soon as the interview is over. In fact, if you know the decision is going to be made the next day write it in the parking l…

Anti Aging High vs Low Review

I recently received the Iconic Edition of the Sephora Play Box (read my review here) and one of the products I was most excited to try out was Crème de La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream because well it's super famous and also hella expensive so of course I wanted to know what's the big deal. The .24 oz sample included was enough for about two week's use - so a one ounce jar would last about 2 months. About a week in as I was getting ready in the morning I starting noticing that my skin did indeed look different - I looked clearer and under my eyes my lines looked a little softer and my circles less dark. I took this selfie to document my skins look - because #vain - plus I knew I would need it for this longer review. I think there's still room for improve with my skin's texture but it had only been a week.
My problem was that a month's supply - the .5 oz jar - is $85 and while that might not seem bad to some it is in major conflict with my goal of being fina…
