Spring Mesh Top

I love this mesh top!!! I bought this blouse in a medium because I wanted it to fit loose. The worst thing you could do in mesh is wear it tight. This floral top happens to be a bodysuit as well, they are so easy for me and I adore them. You know if you have been following me for some time this is like bodysuit 4 and I wear them regularly.

I feel like every top I wear lately I am worried about the bra underneath. Shirts are so complicated these days. I have tried a  bando, a lace bralette and finally this lace crop camisole. For me the see through shirt with a bra is just not my style, but this cute camisole works perfectly. I wear pasties under the bralette and I am good to go. I would highly recommend this  lace camisole.

Spring Wardrobe Finds

Lately it's been all about spring, mainly because I am in California at the end of next month and I want to make sure I have cute and comfy warm weather tops.

This year I want to try and put as much effort into my warm weather clothes as I did in fall. I feel like it is easy to be too dressy or too casual and I want to really find that happy medium. I think I passed on some tops and rompers I really wanted last year because I started too late but this year I hope to change that.

I love the two layers in this top. I also love the sleeves and the back, everything is really open on the sides which is really good for me. The shortness of the top makes it look a little dressier than normal and I really like that.

I paired this spring/summer top with black jeans and a basic nude heel. I am glad I found these super cute Sam Edelman heels at DSW this week, the same shoe at Nordstrom costs $119.00 dollars so I really saved. I linked the shoe down below but online they only have the patent leather option. For some reason I can't buy fun shoes without getting my practical shoes out of the way it just feels weird. I am almost done with practical so hopefully the fun is soon to come.

Throw on Sweatshirt and Leggings

Nordstrom has the best sales lately. Have you noticed that everything in the fall section is a deal. The $169.00 booties I have been drooling over are still normal price but, that's neither here or there ha-ha. I have never spent that much for shoes but, I may need to make the investment at some point. I've had to keep telling myself  that we really only have one more month of winter and that I need to be putting money away for trips I am planning to take this summer
 
I will soon be stocking up on tanks, shorts and rompers, but this sweater / sweatshirt was cozy and cute so I had to get it. I keep saying sweater because it doesn't feel like a sweatshirt, even though it is. If I could do it again, I would buy this sweater in a smaller size because it defiantly is way oversized. I was headed to bible study and threw it on before I decided that I wanted a smaller size. I figured I would be able to throw this sweatshirt on with shorts in the summer as well as during my run arounds during the week. You can no longer shop this sweatshirt, but the leggings I have been talking about forever right here: faux leather leggings.


Oh, this week I was featured in the Seattle Times along with some other great bloggers in the area. Check out our feature here: Seattle-area fashion bloggers share what inspires them (and where they shop) .

Natural and Curly Hair Tips



I get a ton of compliments on my hair these days and I am so flattered. I wish I could say it was easy to figure my hair out but it wasn’t. I watched at least 20 YouTube videos on wash and go routines. I tried several of them before I got the one I use down. I spent money on products that didn’t work for me and finally the third time was a charm.


I am currently using Shea Moisture's high porosity line  and it makes things a lot easier. Below are my tips on curly, dry hair. 


1-      Know your hair. If you have dry hair like me and you are taking product tips from a “normal” curly haired person it makes a difference. Know what type of hair you have and research products accordingly. 


2-       Pick a routine that works for  YOU. There are some really long curly hair processes out there. Literally some ladies define every curl and if that is you more power to you. But, if you are like me and simplicity is your lifestyle then that’s not going to happen. 


3-     Figure your wash days out. You will need to know when your weekly washes will be scheduled. I wash after swim so twice a week. Having your washes planned keeps you in a good easy routine. 


4-     Know your sleep routine. After you get your wash and go down you will need a routine for your no wash days. So get online and find a routine that fits your easy night system. 


5-     Have a reason. For me the reason for switching my hair was ease and maybe that is your reason. If you have a reason this will help you push through to achieve the look you want. The first two times I did my wash and go it was like what's happening with my hair it dried puffy but after research I got it together. 


What products are you currently using that you absolutely love? If you are currently wearing your hair curly like me I would love to hear it. I will do a write up on my process in a week or so.
