TRENDY TUESDAY- say what?!

Hello all! I know today is not Tuesday, but we are taking the time machine back to that glorious day (I am sure you were really wishing you could relive it)! The days until my Stella & Dot Launch party are disappearing faster than a creamcheese frosted cupcake in muh general sightline… I think I have everything just about planned – plus, I can’t stop admiring my jewelry and I am sure my friends will feel the same way at the party. Layering jewelry and loading on the rings is very trendy right now. These Deco Stackable rings in Silver are fantastic to acheive a simple, sparkly, and sophistaced look. My favorite vintage style of jewelry is definitely Deco and it has made a huge comback in recent years. Art Deco uses very classic lines so adding pieces into your daily wardrobe is a must!

Your Fall Wardrobe Starts Here!

And, we are on in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Welcome to another Trendy Tuesday with your host, Kelly Greenawalt! Today, I am sharing some must-have articles of clothing for Fall. These are a few simple items that every girl needs to have in her closet to be looking super *hott* this season. You can mix and match just about everything on this list to create a perfect wardrobe! So let’s get started! I drew up a little cheat sheet for you below!

Tune in next week for the SECOND CHAPTER – “Your Go To Fall Accessories”.  This will help you mix the items below with a scarf, a statement belt, a long necklace, or booties! I will include more looks and tips, & remember, get your fashionable looks here!!

Stay Fabulous this Fall!

Glimpse at Fall Fashion

Hello everyone! Here’s your first look at some of my go-to pieces for fall.

1. If it is tortoise-shell – wear it! This made an appearance in summer, and it’s going to stick around! It is such a classic look and has made a great comeback. Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors reignited that fashion fire! LOVE IT!

2. Natural fall colors are always a great inspiration for anything in the fashion and design world. Right now, if you see the color in a leaf – it’s in: bright mustards, muted pinks, deep purples, greens, and browns.

3. TEXTURE IS HUGE! You wake up and you’re cold, you get to your lunch break and it’s warm, then you get back home and it’s chilly again! Dressing for this kind of weather is easiest if you know how to layer. One of the easiest rules is to add texture. If you wear a simple undershirt add a textured sweater over top. Don a satin shirt and throw a studded leather jacket on over top. Layering and completing a look is all about mixing colors, patterns, and adding textures!

*For my first look: Tortoise-shell Michael Kors boyfriend watch, “You Don’t Know Jacques” OPI nail color, gold arrow band from Charming Charlies, Franco Sarto Leather Peeptoes, an oversized cream sweater from Express, oatmeal colored tank from Target, Straight leg jeans from Express-cuffed at the bottom, & my great-grandmother’s gold necklace*

Let the leaves guide your fall fashion needs



Summer Checklist : Day 9

WHAT?! 9 Days left! Can it be so?!

ITEM 23: Enjoy Summer Beauty

Bronze skin, sun-kissed cheek bones, and a tropical scented décolletage (fancy French word for the area between your neck & bosom) are all things that scream summer beauty necessities!

1. Loreal Sublime Bronze Instant Luminous Bronzer ($9.47 @ Walmart) – post exfoliation shower fun, (I like Bath & Body Works exfoliating gloves) put this tinted lotion on your body. Just like the title claims, it instantly works! Wait a few minutes for it to dry before putting clothing on and I like to spritz my favorite summer fragrance (Clinique Happy to Be) on a washcloth to add some freshness to the scent. This also helps remove some of the shimmer if looking like a pixy isn’t on your to do list… All in all, this is my favorite build-a-tan instant bronzer that I have tried!

2. Loreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes ($9.47 @ Walmart). These bad boys really help to build a tan – in just 3 hours! Use it everyday to get the bronze look you desire and then apply every so often after that for maintenance. I use this before bed, after exfoliating, of course, and waiting for it to dry before clothing myself. I used it only 2x and was asked if I went to the beach for the weekend! Follow the directions, and you’re golden! *haha*

3. While we are on the bronzing subject – Lorac’s TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer (45 mL for $12 @ Sephora) works so well. I put this on my legs and arms before going out and I get so many compliments on how great my legs look! The only downside, is the scent. I do the same thing with this one and spritz some perfume on a cloth and dabble my legs and arms.

4. The next Lorac TANtalizer product that I love is the Baked Bronzer ($32 @ Sephora). This adds an insane amount of bronzer to your face and chest. *Careful not to add too much* You will look so beautifully bronzed with this product – I guarantee it! It also has a golden tint to it so this is great for contouring too!

5. I am a huge, huge, HUGE bareMinerals fan! Most starter kits will come with “warmth” (All over face color $19 @ ULTA). This is a warm bronzer that is perfect for a natural look. I even break this out in the cold of winter when I miss my summer makeup!

6. Next up is “Bella Bamba” blush my Benefit (Sample size shown – actual size $28 @ ULTA). They describe it as being “a 3D brightening pink face powder”. Let me tell you what – this is some of the best blush I have come across. You get just the right amount of color so that your cheeks will look amazing!

7. ULTA’s Translucent All Over Face brightening powder. If you want to look bright-eyed in the morning. Use this powder for contouring above your cheek bones and in between your nose and eyes! You are destined to be looking luminous all day!

8. Michael Kors Leg Shine-Classic ($10 beauty find @ Sephora). If this isn’t just one of the greatest things… It smells like his classic fragrance (which anything Michael Kors is fantastic)! It is like having scented pantyhose in a stick! You get a sexy sheen without the pulls and the bunching!! Legs for days – I think so…

9. Hydrating Moroccan Argan Oil Creamy Oil Body Lotion by Organix. This whole collection has the best scent – delicious, fresh, beachy, and sweet! Plus this product is organic and Moroccan Argan oil is one of Mother Nature’s best! It gives you a luxurious shine all over!

10. Good ‘Ol Burt’s Bees’ (2 count $5.47 @ Walmart). I know bees may be pesky buggers, but they produce some great stuff! Honey for your tea and 100% Natural Beeswax Lip Balm. This also has Vitamin E and Peppermint which gives your lips a cool (oh-so inviting) feeling – kissable, one might say 😉

** I can’t forget my latest pair of Cole Haan sunglasses – a thank heaven for TJ MAXX moment **

Stay beautiful my bronze babes, stay beautiful ❤


Bow Ring Bliss

I have wanted a bow ring for a few years now (what a dilemma, right?!) and I have finally found the blissful winner. Due to my recent crush on Kate Spade’s jewelry line and the fact that one of their outlet stores is nearby, I just had to have it! I also got an amazing bracelet! I mean really, who can turn down a 2 for 20% off deal, in addition to the already discounted outlet prices!? (I should be a sales lady!) I paid less than $56 for something that should have cost about $106! -Unbelievable, you might say!
