White on White

I am seriously OBSESSED with these shorts I just got from J. Crew. They are embroidered with TASSELS! They are also a really good length so not too short to wear with wedges or strappy heeled sandals. Did I mention I got these cuties for $20?! Talk about a steal! I also linked similar pairs I am loving below. I wore these with a white button up (linked the exact one I am wearing below), but I think you could style these so many different ways like with chambray, a silky tank, or even a navy tee. This would also be a cute outfit for the fourth of july with a bright red lip! Thanks for reading! xo Brianna

Summer Beauty Go-To's

I've been trying lots of new products this summer and I wanted to share some of the ones that have stuck with me! I also linked all of these below:)

These colors are great for summer. This red lipstick is definitely a great 'summer red' with some coral/orange tones to it. This is pink is also one of my faves and my go-to color this summer (I pretty much wear it everyday). I am a sucker for pinks and this is one of the best lipsticks EVER! It goes on great and stays put fairly well.

This bronzer duo is amazing! I use the matte side to contour a little under my cheekbones and then swipe the shimmer side on my temples and across my forehead. Nars Orgasm blush is a classic that I have been using forever (I have had this same one for two years and I haven't even hit the pan!). It's a great everyday color with shimmer. I am looking for a good matte blush though... any suggestions?!

During the summer I try to make my hair as low maintenance as possible. This beach spray makes my life so much easier. I love how I can spray it in my wet hair to add texture before I blowdry or spray it on dry hair and scrunch to add a little wave. Naturally, I am extremely pale so I am always using and trying new self tanners. I absolutely love this one. It's so natural looking and doesn't come off patchy. 

I have been using this Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow as my eyeshadow primer and it's been working great! It has a nice golden shimmer to it so it really makes me shadows pop.

I got this foundation to hold me over until my next trip to Sephora, but ended up really liking it. I mix in a little high beam to make the mattness a little more dimensional. I also set with a pressed powder by Jane Iredale. I recently started using this highlight and it is so pretty for summer. It gives you that 'glow' that everyone wants during the warm months.

Thanks so much for reading! xo Brianna

Dressed Up Cutoffs

I am really loving off the shoulder tops this summer. They show off some skin, but are different from the typical tank top. I love this one from Forever 21 because it is soft and girly with the floral pattern and ivory color, but automatically becomes so beach-y with a ‘summer red’ lip and turquoise earrings. These distressed denim shorts have been one of my summer staples because they are just the right length to wear with a heel, so you can dress them up or down! I hope you guys have been enjoying all my beach-y outfits, I don't want to leave! As always thank you for reading… xo Brianna

Lace Crop Top

I am not usually the one to wear crop tops (unless I am wearing something high waisted and you can't see my stomach) but this outfit just seemed so summery and beachy to me. It was super laid back and casual, so perfect for dinner at a beach restaurant! I just did a blog post in these shorts, but I love them so much! They are really short so I also linked a few other pairs (both under $20) that seem like they would be a little longer, yet still are cutoffs. Thanks for reading! xo Brianna

All White & Beach Hair

One of my favorite summer looks is definitely white on white. I feel so chic, yet it's so simple and clean. I added a little color with my earrings that are a pale sea foam green (they showed up blue when I linked them, but you can find them when you click the link! They are the 'chalcedony' and on SALE!) Unfortunately, my top is already out of stock, but I linked some other cute white halter tops I am loving right now! I am for sure enjoying my time at the beach. It's nice to just relax and do nothing the entire day:) I got a little burned today which I NEVER let happen so a little upset about that. I am about as pale as the whites I am wearing naturally, but I always have self tanner on! I linked my fave below:) I never put much effort into my hair at the beach, especially since it was so windy today. To get these beachy waves I used Kevin Murphy hair resort spray before I blow dried to add volume and texture, then I used my straightener to add some waves and then the wind on teh beach did the rest;) I hope everyone is having a great summer so far! xo Brianna

Frayed denim + the perfect summer top

Ahhh vacation... is it bad I have been most excited for this vacation because of blog pictures on the beach? (oops) This top is the PERFECT beach/summer top. It is so soft and easy and the pattern hides wrinkles so it is easy to pack! I just recently bought these shorts and I love them! I was a little unsure because of how short they are (VERY short for anyone interested, you can tell by my pictures), but I love the color, distressing, and the frayed edges! My favorite part is the price... just $15 and I linked them (along with everything else) below. These are the perfect summer shorts in my opinion. Thanks for reading! xo brianna

Shop my look below... I am wearing the turquoise 'Elle' earrings by Kendra Scott, but I also linked the bigger 'Danielle' earrings because they are on sale!

Graphic Tank

I obviously really like the palm print tank this season (third blog post with something palm-ish...oops!). This tank is so soft and comfortable (I am all about comfort during the summer). I love how the back is cutout because it adds a fun detail to an otherwise pretty simple tank. This would also make an adorable swim coverup! I kept this look simple with denim shorts slide sandals and my everyday jewels! 
On another note I leave for Florida Saturday so yay for blog pictures on the beach! 
Thanks for reading!

I have been wanting to do a blog post with this dress foreverrrr! I've had it since April and sort of forgot I hadn't done a post with it because I had worn it so many times already! It is definitely a summer favorite of mine and an easy 'throw-on' dress. This whole look was inspired by Taylor over at Little Blonde Book, you can see her post here. The funny part is I already had all these pieces so I all I had to do was put them together which was nice! I have about 5 blogs/instagrams I truly read and keep up with consistently and hers is one of those. I adore her style and she is definitely someone I look to for style inspo. I really loved this look because I felt put together, but at the same time it is a super simple look. 
In the last pic I tried to capture a new highlight I recently picked up from Sephora (linked below), but the picture doesn't do it justice. I am also loving a new lipstick I recently got by Bare Minerals. I linked it below, but the color showed up different. The color I am wearing is 'fly high' which is a really nice pink with some purple tones. I have been wearing it pretty much everyday because it's such a great color for summer! Thanks for reading!

Black & Ivory

The high for today is 95 degrees... holy hot... so I thought this outfit would be good to stay cool and cute.
Well, I officially love hats. I have gotten two in the past week and I feel like they go with everything! They make any outfit a little more interesting. The one I am wearing is from Forever 21 and I am really impressed by the quality! The other one I have is from Nordstrom and I really like that one too, but I think this one is my new favorite! The best part is it was only $15! You can find it here. I am not one to wear a lot of crop tops, but recently I have found some really cute ones. Some other ones I have gotten recently is this one, this one, and this one! Thanks for reading! xo Brianna
