Ditsy Frill MiiSkirt / $55. Love this skirt! This came home with me. I’m wearing a US 4 and it fits perfectly. It is pretty short, so if you are taller than me (5’7), I wouldn’t recommend it. But it is so flattering and I see myself wearing this all the time!! With sweaters, bodysuits, blouses, casual tanks and tees…. you name it!

Rib Camisole / $10. I love this tank so much!! It comes in a bunch of colors and I plan to buy more! I got this olive color to go with the skirt above. I’m wearing a size US 4.

White Ruffle Minidress / $55. Looooove this dress! It comes in several different colors, but I love the white. It is pretty low in the front, and luckily I was wearing this bralette which I actually think looks really cute. Here is a similar bralette that would look just as good! I am wearing a size US 4 in the dress.

Button-Up Cover Up Dress / $52. This is soooo cute for a cover up!! It is a little bit too thin for a dress, but covers more than enough as a cover up! I will definitely be purchasing this. It comes in more colors too!! It reminds me of Free People. I’m in a size small.

Ring Body-Con Dress / $48. Okay, I know this dress is a little sassy- but I am obsessed with it! The material isn’t too thin for a bodycon dress, and I think it would be so perfect for a bachelorette party, birthday party, Vegas, fun vacay…. I love it! I’m in a size US 2. If you are between sizes, size down. I might order this for the birthday party I don’t even have planned yet.. lol!

Underbust Rib Bodycon Dress / $48. Okay.. another sassy dress! I think this would be great for all of the occasions I talked about for the last dress! I’m in a size US 2 and definitely would need a 4. But it is so cute for a special night out on the town!

Cutout Side Midi Slipdress / $50. I felt really good in this dress in person! The fabric is pretty and it could be dressed up with pretty heels for an event, graduation/engagement party, or a wedding! I would get this in the black color option. I’m wearing a size US 4.

Geo Tie Neck Halter Midi Dress / $90. This dress was not great on me, but would be soooo perfect on someone else! It is gorgeous. This style would be perfect on someone thin without curvy hips! The fabric and quality was amazing for an event or wedding. Loved it, just not for me! 

Turner Sneaker / $48. Major shoe crush!!!! I am so obsessed with these in both color combos! Definitely an affordable option if you love the Golden Goose look.

Nike Blazer Mid Vintage Sneaker / $100. I am ordering these right now!! They are SO cute! A classic and will be a staple with skirts, dresses, jean shorts… everything!! Definitely order these if you are looking for a neutral/go with everything sneaker. 

Hotstuff Toe Ring Sandal / $30. I got these in both colors (they also come in brown)!! I’m telling you- these are the perfect sandals. They are simple, chic, COMFORTABLE… everything I have been looking for in a sandal!! I am seriously considering purchasing two more pairs as backups in case something ever happens to the ones I bought. Order these!! You will thank me later. They remind me of the $200+ Ancient Greek sandals everyone loves.Main Image - Topshop Hotstuff Toe Ring Sandal (Women)

Dior Nude Air Luminizer Powder in “Pink Glow” / $56. This might seem random, but I went over the the beauty section and tried on this amazing highlighter after seeing so much hype about it online. It is GORGEOUS!! I cannot wait to go back and get this!Main Image - Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder

Alright, that’s it!! Let me know your favorites!! If you enjoyed this try on post, check out this one from a few weeks ago! Xoxo, Olivia

But, I wanted to take some time to share a retailer that I have been loving for the past couple of months: PacSun!! I know, I know.

Wish List: For The Home

I love decorating our home! It is so much fun to look for things to fill all of the different spaces. When we moved into this new place last summer, we didn’t bring ANYTHING! Not one thing! We hired Maggie from Lucy & Co to do our living room, dining room, and master bedroom. But, I still like doing some random things myself. I’ve learned that it takes a lot of time and patience to fill every space. There are still so many items that are on my wish list for the house, and I have slowly been checking things off the list. Here are some of the items that are still on my wish list!

*Click text link or image for product page!*

Anthropologie White Dipped Ladder / $98. I am planning to purchase this ladder for the master bathroom!! It is almost identical to this $348 white dipped ladder from Serena & Lily. Since when does Anthropologie make these affordable pieces?! Loving it!

Anthropologie Storage Bath Caddy / $148. I am getting this caddy (eventually-lol) for the master bath as well! I think it will add something extra to the space.. and you can fill it with your favorite candle and bath accessories. 

Anthropologie Blue Marisol Pillows / $98 each. I love these pillows for the master bedroom!! I am hesitant because I love to find a deal, but I might go ahead and pull the trigger on these because I haven’t found any that I love more!Slide View: 2: Marisol Pillow

Anthropologie Chevron Hand Towel / I am planning to get this for our powder bathroom downstairs! We have fun blue printed wallpaper in that space, and this towel will accent the walls perfectly.

Pottery Barn Moroccan Twist Fireplace Screen / $199. We are planning to get this fireplace screen for the fireplace in our living room. I can’t wait! I think it will really make the room look more complete. I also like this $78 option from Joss & Main.

Minted Anemone Art Print / $ depends on size. We are putting this piece over the fireplace in our dining room! I’m so excited to see this hanging. I am all about all blue everything! "Anemone" - Art Print by Denise Wong in beautiful frame options and a variety of sizes.World Market All Weather Wicker Outdoor Chair / $199. I have been eyeing these chairs for so long.. I need to just go for it! I would love to have these as an addition around our outdoor fireplace or by the “spa” area. They look so similar to these $600 West Elm chairs!

Pier 1 Hanging Chair / $249. One more thing I would love to have outside is a hanging chair! This would look perfect in the corner of our covered porch. I’m not sure how functional these are, but they are so cute! From what I have seen, this one is a great price.

That is the majority of my wish list! There are more accessories that I have in mind, but I change my mind on those on a daily basis. What is your approach to shopping for your house? Do you like to do everything at once, or slowly finish each space?! Would love to know your thoughts and tips!! Xoxo, Olivia

Video: My Favorite Smoky Eye Look

Hi guys!! SO sorry it’s been over a week since I’ve posted! I’ve been working on something a little different for this post. I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the smoky eye look I do for a night out, so I thought I would upload a little video on how I do the look. This is in no way a tutorial, I just thought it would be easier to explain the steps and products that I use in a video. I’m also writing out all the steps and linking all of the products below!! Let me know what you guys think!! This is my first time making a video like this, so I promise I will get better with the editing ;)

1.) Before I started the video, I applied my Ultra Repair Cream Moisturizer, Hourglass Dim Light Corrective Primer, and MAC Painterly Eyeshadow Primer.

2.) I used the original Naked Palette on my eyes. Eyelid color: “Gunmetal” using my favorite MAC 217 eyeshadow brush. Outer corner color: “Creep” using my Sigma E55 eye shading brush.

3.) I blend the two colors together with my Sigma E25 blending brush.

4.) After I’m done with my eyeshadow, I apply Christian Dior Airflash Foundation in color “Sand” with my amazing Tarte airbrush foundation brush (this can be used with all types of foundation and is the best foundation brush I have ever used!)

5.) Next, I use NYX Born To Glow Illuminator in color “Pure Gold”. I apply it with my fingers on my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and my top lip!

6.) After I’m done with all my liquid and cream products, I apply Becca Soft Blurring Powder in color “Golden Hour” with my Sigma large powder brush. This is like wearing a filter in real life- ha!

7.) In the video I use my Dusty Rose MAC eyeshadow palette in color “Cool Compliment” with an angle brush to fill in my brows. You can use any eyebrow tool! I also like this NYX cosmetics brow pencil.

8.) Next I do my eyeliner! I use my IT Brushes angle brush to apply MAC fluidliner gel eyeliner in color “Blacktrack”. I also found this gift set including the MAC fluidliner + an angle brush for under $30.

9.) Finally it’s time for bronzer! First I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer with my bronze and contour brush by Tarte. I use the same brush to add a little bit of color with Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Powder in “Bali Brown”.

10.) After I put my bronzer on, I use MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in “Global Glow” as a highlighter. This is what makes the whole look pop! I like to use this $8 sheer powder brush from EcoTools to apply it.

11.) Next I apply L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in “Carbon Black”. You can buy this at any drugstore or Target!

12.) Lastly, I do my lips. I apply my all time favorite lip pencil by NYX cosmetics in color “Natural”. I top it with MAC’s nymphette lip gloss! This is the best lip combination EVER!

And that’s it!! I do not do this look often.. only for fun occasions or going out on a hot date! Let me know what you think of my video and smoky eye how-to! Xoxo, Olivia

Spring Fever: Favorite Dresses under $40

Happy Monday, everyone!! I officially have spring fever.. there is no turning back! I won’t be buying another sweater or anything cold weather related for a LONG time!! My favorite thing to shop for when the warm weather rolls around is dresses. I love to just throw on a cute dress for hanging with family, date nights, or running errands during the day. I compiled a list of my favorite spring dresses under $40 for you all! Because we all know this girl loves to ball on a budget.. lol ;)

*Click text links or images for product page!*

Ribbed Knit Flounce Hem Dress / $35. I love the cut of this dress!!! It is so flattering, and I love the look of a white dress with a good tan and my favorite gold hoop earrings. You could rock this with flip flops or wedges on a beach vacation & it would look fab either way. I definitely want this for something wedding related!

0

Gingham Wrap Dress / $18. This gingham wrap dress has amazing reviews & is in stock in sizes S-XL. I love the versatility of it- you could wear this with wedges for Easter Sunday or a hot date, or you could dress it down with these adorable $19 lavender sneakers for a fun girl’s brunch or shower.

4

Palm Print Off The Shoulder Dress / $23. This dress reminds me of the brand Show Me Your Mumu…. at a fraction of the price!! I think this would be perfect for a night out with friends, or even for a spring/summer wedding with these $35 strappy heels.

0

Casual T Shirt Dress with Ruched Sides / $20. So sorry for the blurry image; this adorable dress is from Amazon! It has amazing reviews & I love the idea of just throwing this on with my favorite $8 faux leather flip flops & air dried hair. The great thing about this dress is it goes from sizes Small to 3X Plus, so it’s perfect for all sizes! I also think that this dress is appropriate for all ages. It comes in several other colors including black and gray.

Released-Hem Denim Shirt Dress / $32. I have an older version of this exact dress and I wear it ALL. THE. TIME. It is so adorable & flattering!!! I’ve worn it belted, unbelted, with boots, wedges, sneakers, sandals. You name it. This dress is so versatile and I love how on trend this version is with the released hem look at the bottom. I think this dress would be so cute with these cute $18 sandals for casual days during the spring and summer.

Olive T- Shirt Dress / $20. I’ve shared this before, but I wanted to share it again because I have this dress and LOVE it so much! My sister has the grey color and I have the green. I love this for spring with a jean jacket. Target is BOGO 50% off with dresses right now, so I thought I’d share a few that I have and love from there. These dresses are so cute in person!!

Tie Waist Ruffle Sleeve Dress / $25. I have this dress in the gray color, and I promise you in person it looks like something that came from ShopBop or Revolve! The quality is amazing and the fit is great too. I got this in an XS- so size down if you are between sizes. This dress would be so cute with these $25 platform espadrilles.

Blue Striped Tie Back Dress / $28. This dress is also part of Target’s Buy One Get One 50% Off Dresses sale. I saw this dress in store and it is so gorgeous!!! It gives me major Anthropologie vibes! I love it for baby showers, luncheons, or any spring get together.

Alright, that’s all I have to share for today!! As you can see, I mostly like to stick to simple dresses that I can wear several different times & styled different ways. All of these dresses are so versatile and would work for lots of different occasions! What are your favorite dresses that I shared? Let me know in the comments!! Xoxo, Olivia

My 5 Favorite Hair Products

Hi guys!! Today I’m going to be sharing my 5 favorite hair products/tools. I’ve never been one to put a lot of product in my hair, but there are a few things I love to use & have been using for a long time that I wanted to share with you all.

1.) Pureology Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner Bundle / $50. I have been using this shampoo & conditioner for forever. The hydrate line from Pureology is all about protecting & enhancing hair color. I swear by this stuff & know it is the reason why I can go so long without getting my hair colored! This set I linked comes with a detangled hairbrush, and it’s the best deal for the shampoo & conditioner bundled that I could find! I only wash my hair once a week (or less!), and this size lasts me a really long time.

2.) T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand / $270. I know, I know- that price seems SO HIGH!! But…. this is the best wand/iron I have ever used. I have very thick, long hair & other irons just do not curl my hair the way the T3 does. And it comes with 3 barrels- so you have to think of it like you are getting 3 curling irons for $270 instead of one. This set is super easy to use, & I am so glad I invested in this!! Plus, it’s really pretty ;)

3.) TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo / $5. This stuff is THE BEST dry shampoo, especially for brunettes. It keeps my hair looking good for at least a week of not washing. I even use it the day after I wash my hair just for added volume at the roots. This dry shampoo also gives texture to your hair, so I spray it on before I curl or style my hair too!tresemme

4.) CHI Helmet Head Hairspray / $21. This stuff is amazing!! Sabrina gave it to me (I’m always “stealing” stuff from her beauty collection lol) and I love it so much. It smells amazing and isn’t sticky at all. And it works! My hair doesn’t fall at all. Give it a try if you don’t already have a hairspray that you love!

5.) Claw Hair Clip Set / $3. This one is kind of random- but recently I got an adorable set of claw marble hair clips & have been using them every single day. So of course I had to include them on my list! When I was searching for a similar set, I first came across this set from Nordstrom for $28. So of course I had to check Forever 21 for a better price. They have so many cute ones! Hair clips are definitely back in.00259259-02
