Game Day Style

Fall is almost here and with fall comes football season. Get ready to support your favorite team in style by wearing this simple and chic look, perfect for game day. 

Start off with your favorite team's jersey, I chose this Patriots one from Fanatics. For a bit of added warmth, layer your go-to denim jacket over the jersey and pair with dark wash jeans. As for accessories you can choose any that you'd like. I picked a pair of Steve Madden booties and a cranberry beanie to keep the look both stylish and comfortable. For a touch of something special, sport a large silver watch and deep red lipstick.

This look is casual and comfy but still feminine and chic. You can easily substitute your team's colors and jersey to make the look more personal to you.

Go Patriots!

 *Thank you to Fanatics for introducing me to their awesome selection of NFL jerseys*

Must Have of the Week: Spiral Bobby Pins

This week I've been loving spiral bobby pins. I've been wearing my hair up in a messy bun a lot lately and regular bobby pins just weren't cutting it. While at the store I picked up a pack of spiral bobby pins thinking I'd give them a try. They worked even better than I had expected them to. They make my messy bun feel secure and they're virtually effortless to use. All you have to do is create the hairstyle of your choice and then twist the pins in, ta-da! your hair is ready for the day.

My Summer Must Haves: All You Need for the Perfect Summer Look

Summer is in full swing and I'm loving it. The nice, sunny, weather has me in the best mood and I'm happy to share some of my favorite new and old items that I've been obsessed with of the late. These items will have you staying cool, bronzed, and summer ready.


I recently picked these sandals up at Walmart and they've already paid for themselves. I've worn them nearly everyday since I bought them. They go with everything. I love the crisp white and silver details for summer.


Bandanas are my go to accessory all year round but even more so in the summer. They instantly add a boost of color to any look and they are perfect for keeping your hair out of your face. I love tying one into a headband with a ponytail or curled hair. They make for a retro, pinup vibe that I love.


Ever since I bought these sunglasses at Charlotte Russe I've been seeing colorful mirrored glasses everywhere. I love these ones because of their white frames and purple, blue, and green lenses. They go with a ton of my warm weather wardrobe and whenever I put them on I feel a tad bit more summery. 


I'm pretty pale and usually I'm not one to sit outside and tan. In order to add a bit of color to my skin I tried out Jergens gradual tanner. Although this tanner can be a bit streaky if you don't apply it carefully, when you are careful and neat it gives you nice natural color. I did not experience any orange color. I do prefer this product better with a bit of a real tan underneath. It looks more even that way. 


This sunscreen isn't the best for everyday use (for that you'd probably want a higher SPF) but for me this is perfect for a quick sunbathing session. I like the shimmery effect it gives my skin and it smells great for a sunscreen. 


This is the perfect replacement for foundation during the Summer. It is much lighter, has pretty good coverage, and also has just enough SPF for everyday running around. I love this stuff and have been using it much more frequently since Summer started. 


In the summertime I'm all about a little extra bronze. When it comes to finding a good bronzer there is always something I struggle with, the glitter or shimmer content. This matte bronzer is perfect for a natural look. It's completely sparkle free and a little bit goes a long way.


In the summer I love either a good pastel nail polish or something bright. These two shades from Sinful Colors are my favorites, Tempest (purple) and Bikini (pink). I'm currently rocking Tempest. 

What are some of your summer essentials?
