Leather, Floral & Fringe for days!

Im all about fringe right now, especially if it’s on my feet (obsessed is a understatement). We already know how I feel about floral, and I’m really excited were starting to transition into fall! My favorite time of year, im absolutely ready for some fur and leather! Here’s some recent outfits and their copy cats ; )

A very floral birthday

Now this outfit I kind of ended up throwing together out of no where. My shorts are from Bella Bella on Metairie rd. and I’m pretty sure they will be one of my fall favorites, you can pair them with anything! This shirt is about 2 years old, and from god knows where at this point! I can’t really give you this exact copy cat so below is a different spin on it.

PomPoms and Florals

Had a blast on a recent trip to sandestin with my family & loved my fits. Anything PomPom is in right now and I have always been a floral girl, if it has flowers on it, I’m probably buying it! If you ask me floral never goes out of style ; ) I posted links below for a different spin on my shorts outfit and the exact links to the pants outfit!

My Beach Bag Essentials

Let’s be honest, I’m not a simple girl & neither is what’s in my target beach bag!

20140729-084646-31606070.jpg

1) This little section is the most important, obviously….
Emi-jay headband and hair tie are needed for any type of hair change through out the day.
EOS lipblam, because it’s the best. Vintage dolce & gabanna sunglasses (were talking circa 2005 people, a classic aviator).
Anker portable iPhone charger, which I advise everyone to own and you can get it on Amazon, as a 24/7 iPhone addict, I can personally tell you how perfect it is.
And last but not least, my young blood lipstick in “debalicious”. I’m a total lipstick girl through and through and if lipstick on the beach is wrong, I don’t wana be right! You can purchase young blood at H2O or online somewhere!

2) Some kind of sunscreen…. This is kinda irrelevant because I will forget to put it on throughout the day & get sunburned as hell, but do as I say not as I do (Apply this in most life cases).

3) Let’s discuss my reading habits, as far as I’m concerned cosmopolitan is the bible. I’ve probably read every single one front to back since 2004 and it’s the only thing I get in the mail (besides hautelook packages) that makes my face light up – big girl bills blow! Secondly, two words, BRANDI GLANVILLE…. A girl after my own heart, (read the book or watch her on RHOBH and you’ll quickly realize our similarities for the love of a certain curse word…Although I’m working on not using it so much). Her first book “drinking & tweeting” made me laugh like no other and her second “drinking & dating” undoubtably had the same effect.

4) A hairdresser isn’t a hairdresser if she doesn’t bring products to the beach! K√©rastase’s nectar thermique (a moisturizing heat protectant, applied post nasty saltwater) and elixir ultime (a leave in beautifying oil, can be applied on wet or dry hair) are a must in the sun for this blondies dry hair!

5) Tkees,the ultimate throw on (non-tacky) flip flop.

6) Chocolate teddy grams. Yes I’m 26 years old, but at 4 ww points for 24 pieces My sweet tooth is pretty satisfied by these guys.

7) About a year ago I found a cream cover up like this at forever 21, I’m not one to love going to the mall but when I ran there last week I saw this yellow one! When I saw it I had to grab it, they are great to throw on & are so freakin cute! You can find it Here

Happy beaching people

Over the weekend….

BRILEY BRUNCHIN’

One of my best friends Michelle is a bride to beee, so all of her amazing bridesmaids threw her a small brunch to get together and talk party dates! The spread was super adorable, so simple, and actually didn’t break the bank!

We had donuts for days and a cute mimosa bar! I love using mason jars for decoration because they are perfect for anything! Drinks, food, flowers, or utensils! A lot of my server wear is either from tj maxx or zgallerie! I swear, if you go to tj maxs and you can find a so cute cake stand, it’s worth your while to snag it! Basically every time I go they have at least one or two!

The chicken and waffles were mini-eggos and chick-fil-a nuggets, so easy & so yummy! The pancake stacks I poured using a small measuring spoon and the french toast sticks were actually in the freezer isle, we served them with syrup to dip in!

KIMONOS & CROP TOPS

First and foremost, let’s start with the crop top issue, Seriously they are adorable, but they have to be worn correctly! I’m a curvy girl so I have to find the perfect fitting ones that hit the right spot on my body or they can end up doing absolutely nothing for me! I will always pair a crop top with something high-waisted and I think most of the rest of the population should stick with that rule too, justt saying!

Kimonos are so in right now and I’m loving this one I got from Bella Bella on Metairie rd. They are right next to the salon, so I’ll sneak over there a good bit in between clients ; ) I paired it with high-waisted floral shorts for a more night time look, but went with wedges instead of heels to still keep it on the casual side!
