Here's to indoor photoshoots because it's been raining like it's the apocalypse for the last three days LOL HELP

I reviewed fashion nova recently (moral of the story: buy at your own risk) & the one amazing thing to come out of the whole ordeal: this bodysuit. I love a good bodysuit. While the whole execution of getting it on/off is sometimes not in the least conducive, it wears well, with ease & minimal layering/ tucking/ any other style tricks. It’s an easy breezy piece that can be dressed up by things like denim skirts or in today’s case, culotte pants.

There’s something about culottes that scream ‘I’m here for my 9-5 but I’m gonna look fab doing it’. Bodysuits say ‘I can be anything I want.’ Paired, it’s magic.

Spring Transition Picks
Spring Transition Picks

It's such a weird time of year for fashion: we still have that last bit of winter left, but every store you go into is screaming for you to buy bikinis & the latest off the shoulder number. It can get a little... confusing, to say the least. BUT there are a ton of pieces that are amazing when it comes to wearing for spring transition.

To absolutely no one's surprise: there is no shortage of blush & floral on this list. Every year since '06, Miranda Priestly's voice comes to me saying "Floral? For spring? Groundbreaking." And every year I JUST DON'T CARE OKAY.

Just like seasons past, you'll be seeing maxi dresses everywhere. Forever jealous of you babes that can rock a maxi without looking like it's eating you. You wear it well. Off the shoulder is in again and I think I like it better than the cold shoulder this year. (notice no CS picks...)

One last thing: MULES MULES MULES. Perfect for every season, in my book. I'm obsessed with these guys. They're such an effortless look but so put together, a look that says 'I'm ready for business.'

Let's go.

The Pink Lipstick Edit

You may have noticed, I have a thing for pink. Not so much the bold, hot pink that once framed my teenage-bedroom walls, (cringe) but the soft, feminine notes of a blush or strawberry tone. & that shows in my lipstick shade choices. Sure, I love a good berry or red, but I feel things truly shine in a good old fashioned, Reese Witherspoon-esque pink.

Over the years I've found a few ride-or-die lippies that stand the test of times, & today I'm sharing some PINKS. SEO says I should be writing A LOT more under each description, but there are only so many ways you can drone on about a single lip product. So without boring you to death, let's dive in:

Pink Lipsticks

This color is such a subtle, pretty tone. It could even be known as the perfect pink: not too bright, not too light, but just so. I think there's a reason for its name; it's light & breezy, just like a summer day. Ooor maybe I'm getting too deep in the similes. THIS ISN'T ENGLISH CLASS. Nevertheless, I'm a fan.


So pale it's nearly a nude, this one is for when you want something even more subdued than summer breeze. It looks especially pretty paired with darker eyeshadow or outfit. CONTRAST.


Aside from the rather cheesy name, this is probably my favorite pink lip I've ever worn. It's an oldie but a goodie. It's a pop of matte pink without being so overpowering you don't know what to do with yourself. It's pretty much universally flattering and, well, chic. Okay, so maybe it lives up to its name. Who knew?



another one.

Policy & Change
Maybe dedicating a full blog post to nearly every tragedy we face isn't the way to keep my positive demeanor, but nothing feels right otherwise. So here we are again.

I'm just so tired. I'm tired of writing these posts. I'm tired of defending basic human rights & policy changes to strangers on social media. I'm tired of grieving for lives lost due to senseless, avoidable violence. 

This country loves our guns more than it loves our people, and we should be ashamed of ourselves. 

It's not a God-given right to own a firearm. Don't use my God to defend twisting the second amendment for your own gain. I'm tired. 

There's so many of us fighting, so many voices struggling to be heard, and yet it feels like we're so alone in the fight sometimes. How did it get that way? It's not okay. Nothing is ever going to change until something changes. 

But how will anything ever change when the white house is full of people who think that thoughts & prayers are enough? Don't get me wrong, we should never stop praying. But faith without action is dead, & so we keep losing lives. We keep making status updates expressing heartbreak & outrage. We keep fighting with strangers on the internet. We keep, we keep, we keep. 


Here are some ways you can take action for gun policy change right now: 

+ Find out who your Congress representative is & call or email them, letting them know why change is important. 
+ Donate to Everytown 
+ Find events in your area dedicated to stopping gun violence 
+ Get educated. Do your research. Keep fighting. 

"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."
-James 2:14-17
