Hey Cats!

Happy Wednesday! I apologize for the lack of post on Monday-This was just too long of a post to start at 9pm the night before! So I decided to postpone it for a couple of days, hopefully you understand. So let’s just jump in: here’s the details on my latest Instagram posts! And if you’re not following along, you can do that here!

I found the perfect substitution for the Naked palette! The Gilded Gold palette by Ulta is my new favorite thing! It’s definitely comparable in colors and quality, but for about half the price. I also purchased my go-to mascara, Colossal Cat Eye by Mabelline, and got a free gift that includes everything else that’s pictured! It was a great day for makeup!

One of the few work outfits I’ve featured lately! This Chambray Shirt Dress from Old Navy is one of my new favorites! It’s perfect for work or church, and you can wear it with heels or flats. It’s like the full body version of a chambray shirt, which I wear like every week, so obviously this is on repeat. I paired it with leopard smoking slippers, my Kendra Scott Alex earrings in chalcedony, and my Barrington bag!

These Vince Camuto heels have popped up quite a few times on the blog lately! They’re my new go-to nude heel for summer. They pair well with sundresses, rompers, and white jeans!

Still can’t wait to take these to the beach in a week and a half! My Marley Lilly hat proved to be an excellent choice for a Derby party, and I’m excited to wear it at the beach as well! Paired with my coverup from Forever 21, which I couldn’t find online but found similar options here, here, and here.

This gallery wall in my bedroom is the pride and joy of my home decor. My prints were a gift, but I believe they came from Etsy! I like the prints from Luxe Art Prints, ItsLikeGoldDust, and Wall And Wonder. The arrow is from Hobby Lobby, as is the “K”! Perhaps my favorite part of this wall is the rhino. I got it at Target, but like literally everything else, I can’t find it. BUT! I found one that I also love in gold at Anthropologie! They also have a colorful collection of exotic animal busts, if your decor is a bit more eclectic.

This white top is a summer staple! I love this off the shoulder option, this similar option, and this short-sleeved option. I paired it with my Gap Girlfriend jeans and trusty Target sandals for a casual Friday work look.

A great mail day! This nameplate necklace from Marley Lilly is great for layering, and a Southern Living is always great for reading!

Another great mail day! This druzy cuff from Kinsley Armelle is a perfect addition to my wrist. Also, I am obsessed with this brand! They’re based right outside of Houston, and have adorable pieces that are unique and affordable, which I’m all about. Check them out!

You may have seen on Insta that I rediscovered my old Converse when I went to my parent’s house this weekend! I have a pair of hot pink high tops and a pair of black low-tops that I’ve had since middle school. I rescued them because they’re on trend again! Yay for shopping your closet!

A Few of My Favorite Pins-Fashion Edition

Hey Cats!

Like many of you, I am obsessed with Pinterest. I love finding new home decor ideas (for the home I don’t yet have), craft inspiration (to do in my fleeting free time), fashion tips, and new recipes! In fact, my roommate once told me that she always knew when I was in class because she would see that I was pinning up a storm! (That’s a habit that gets you B’s instead of A’s, I wouldn’t recommend it.) I have found that if you need directions or help with anything domestic, you can usually find multiple tutorials on Pinterest. While the majority of my pins are crafts and recipes, I do enjoy pinning to my Fashion board from time to time. This board mostly contains coveted pieces of clothing far out of my price range, but I have found a few pins that lead to great resources for making the most of your wardrobe! Here are my Top 5 links from my Fashion/Hair board!

First is this link to a list of 50 wardrobe must-haves. This will lead you to Chic Street Style, one of my favorite blogs! This lists the staples for a well-built, versatile closet, but also includes fun pieces as well! I personally don’t have everything on the list, but I am slowly working towards it!

Next is this Urban Decay Naked palette tutorial. I love my Naked palette, and I use it every day! There are so many colors, and I didn’t really know how to use them all properly, so I’m glad I found this tutorial from MakeupByTiffanyD! I tried the “Everyday Fresh Faced” tutorial, and now that’s what I wear every day!

This next pin is great for the winter! I love scarves, but anything other than an infinity scarf gives me anxiety. I can never decide how to tie it and it’s just a stressful time. However, this website, Scarves Dot Net, has an entire library of scarf-tying tutorials! Some are really difficult and elaborate, and some work if you’re in a hurry. The pin leads you to a page with the best scarf knots for different necklines, which is great, but I would encourage you to explore the rest of the site for other ideas!

This next pin has definitely come in handy this spring, since neon is all the rage. It shows the best colors to pair with your neons (because you would never wear a solid neon color from head to toe. At least not if you wanted to be my friend.). I especially love the idea of orange paired with navy! The link leads you to the blog “with an ie”.

Next is a pin I really love. I am all about the stacked bracelet trend, but I find it difficult to arrange the bracelets correctly. This visual guide from Kate Spade New York (of course. Love ya, Kate) is a good reference for how many bangles to pile on and in what order. I like how it shows a variety of bracelets on each wrist with a few different options!

And since I love the kitties so much, here is an extra. I am absolutely dying for a cat sweater, and it is my goal to get one this winter. I know it’s not the most chic addition to my wardrobe, but I feel like I could pull it off. Like, I NEED this. Right meow.

So there you have it! What are the best fashion tips you have come across on Pinterest?

Until next time!
