Complete Summer Outfit for under $75

I wanted to share a budget friendly summer look that is so easy & versatile. This whole outfit is less than $75! I shop a lot of fast fashion for my summer clothes, especially because the summer season is so short for us here in Chicago 😀

Top: The top is just a basic white crop top. It has multiple uses and it hit at perfect length to go with this skirt. They are perfect for fall too with a high waisted denim.

Skirt: I love this skirt! The color is so vibrant, and I get a lot of compliments when I wear it. The tie waist is adorable. It's a faux tie waist, it is just decorative. There is a zipper in the back of the skirt as well.  Super flattering on and such a fun color.  If you are not a pop of color girl, it comes in black & tan. Those are good colors for the transitioning season.

Amazon Buys under $20

Hi everyone! It was a close call between July Favorites & recent Amazon buys...but I am excited that you all wanted to see something new.  Since Prime day, I have been checking out amazon more and found some really great purchases. Check them out here!


1. Button Up Thermal -  So lately I feel like amazon has been coming out with a lot of clothing. I saw this button up, the price was under $20 with free returns. So I was like...worth a shot. There is a similar one at Nordstrom that sold out that I was interested in, so  I just took the plunge & ordered this. I seriously love it! I wore it the first day it came in the mail. Really comfy material and such a unique color. 

2.  Nude Crossbody - I'm always looking for a good nude bag. I feel like that's the story of my life. This one looks super cute & under 20 -- can't wait to get it!


3. Pop Socket Mount -  SO useful for anyone who has a pop-socket on their phone. I have this mounted in my car and I just pop my phone in every time. 
4. Rose Gold Top Hangers -  I own these and love how they look. So chic & worth it!
5. Rose Gold Bottom Hangers Just placed an order for these to complete my wardrobe.

Cherry Top For Work Or Play

Happy Saturday everyone

 This is such a fun look that I've been wanting to share with you guys! This cherry top is instantly a new favorite for me. I'm not much of a button down kind of girl, unless it has a girly twist to it. This cherry one is perfect, and in stock right here for only 18!

My look:

Top // Denim // Shoes // Sunglasses // Bag 

I paired it with my favorite crop slim boyfriend jeans. If you are on the hunt for a boyfriend jean that flatters a fuller figure, these are the ones. I feel like they hug in the right places and are the right amount of crop & right amount of skinny.  They also just went on SALE! For 89 - original 135ySuch a quality pair of denim I would recommend to anyone!

What I'm buying from the #NSALE

1.Louise Et Cie Black Boot- I always struggle with what boots to wear in winter to more formal events. These are perfect! So classic and elegant.
2. Sam Edelman Bootie- I need a new cognac boot, and this one looks like it will go with everything for Fall.
3. Soludos Espadrille- I love espadrilles! Debating between the nude & gray, probably will order whatever is available in my size and go with that.
4.Steve Madden Slide- I love these mules! I personally love the grey and the snakeskin the most.
5.1 State Block Heel Pump - I love the color of this heel! Could see myself using this a lot, especially for church or fancier events. 


1- Thread & Supply Pullover- if you feel the material on this thing, you're gonna snag it. So warm & cozy. I have been eyeing it since last year! 
2. Leith Cardigan- Lilac is going to be a big color this year, for sure. I love the length of this cardigan. 
3. Good Vibes Tee- So cute! I love a good graphic tee and the price is right.
4. Wayf Top- This is what I call a grab & go top. You just pair it with some denim and cute shoes and you have a put together look. 
5. Free people top- Perfect for layering. Covers your butt & good with leggings!

Current Mascara Favorites - Drugstore & High End

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! This is a post I have been meaning to share. I love mascara, it's probably my favorite makeup product. I wanted to share all the ones I currently use and what I'm loving!

  1. Telescopic - this is hands down the best mascara for lengthening. I love using this one and have repurchased it over 7 times. It's so great even if you just do a couple coats for length and pair it wth a volumizing mascara after.
  2. Voluminous - Speaking of volumizing mascara, this is the one I swear by. I have bought this over 7 times too and I have bought the regular and the extra black. This seriously darkens your lashes so much and gives a crazy amount of volume. 
  3. Smokey Eye Mascara - this is not my fave but it's a good everyday mascara. Didn't do anything crazy for my lashes 
  4.  Scrumptious Infinite - I really like this one! It makes your lashes super black and does add length and volume. I will say though, I do think it does more length than volume. 
  5. Better than Sex - this mascara is over hyped, but it does do a really good job. With my lashes, I notice that it really picks up all of them, even the super tiny ones and doubles the volume. I get a lot of compliments when I wear this one! 
  6. Voluminous Extra Black - I just had to shout this one out, because it really darkens your lashes. I use this one more for night time or stronger eye looks.
  7. Lash Trifecta- This one curls and lifts all in one, this is one of those that the tube doesn't appeal to me, but it is so awesome. It lifts and opens my eyes.
  8. The Falsies - love the volume this gives me! I also like that the brush is curved so I feel like it doesn't miss any lashes.

Other mascaras I LOVE just don't currently use-

My absolute favorite drug store one is Telescopic and my favorite high end is Chanel Le Volume

What is your absolute favorite? Let me know down below!

June Favorites

Hey everyone! I wish I could get this post up on the first for y'all, but you guys know I am always late about it. Anywho- these are the products I have been LOVING in June!

Revlon Blow Dryer- Ok this thing is amazing! Took me like 20 minutes to do my hair and gave me so much volume and body. I also suck at blow drying my hair by myself, and this thing made it so easy. I would definitely recommend it!

Morphe Foundation Brush- I was using a real techniques brush before I got this one, but mine was starting to fall apart. I decided to pick this up and OMG- my foundation goes on so smoothly and it blurs and blends everything together so well.  I don't think I'll ever use another foundation brush. Price is only 14 too!

Madewell Slim Boyfriend Jean- I have been searching high and low for what seems like years for a good boyfriend jean that wasn't too baggy and I finally found the pair. It fits so well through the hips and thighs, and slims down by the knees. I got a 29, but I'm usually a 30. I'm a total sucker for made well jeans now!

Sugarfix earring- I have been trying to switch up my accessory game, so I thought these white earrings would be perfect for the summer season. I can see myself pairing these up with wrap dresses or nice blouses. They are 12.99 and come in so many colors!

Polka Dot Hair Scarf-  I have been using this thing all the time! You can tie it on your bag as an extra accessory, or put it in your hair. You can do it in a bun, a pony-tail, or as a head band. I love how multi-purposeful this is and that it can just be an extra accessory for summer time!


Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know what you are loving for the summer months down below!
