KiraKira Giveaway!

I love a great chambray dress.  It is the epitome of casual chic, and a perfect (and super easy) piece for summer that also transitions well into Fall!  I especially love to style mine back to neutral accessories and gold jewelry and love the extra glam factor that a floppy hat and white bag can add.  It feels to me like the prefect ensemble for a Sunday brunch or fun lunch date.  Plus, you can score this dress from Old Navy for less than $30.  Talk about a no-brainer!

Now onto some exciting news!!  If you follow this blog, then you know that I wear my Marrakech ring from KiraKira ALL. THE. TIME!  My sweet hubby surprised me with it for my birthday, and it has quickly become one of my very favorite pieces of jewelry.  And so today, I couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with the fabulous ladies of KiraKira to give one away to one of you!  You can find all the entry details at the bottom of this post!!!

Flower Power

I don’t normally find myself gravitating towards floral prints.  But when I saw this top at JCrew (it’s on clearance right now, by the way), I think I fell in love a little. It’s such an easy, breezy piece for summer and a perfect match back to shorts.  But I’m also envisioning styling it back to denim and taking it into the early fall season layered with a leather or jean jacket.  And while I’m certainly not ready for the warmer months to end, it’s definitely time to start strategizing how to take your summer wardrobe into fall!

Coral Crush

Sometimes I find that daytime events can be a bit tricky to dress for.  So when I had the chance to celebrate with my sister-in-law at her baby shower while we were on vacation a couple of weeks ago, I was feeling a bit stumped as to what to wear.  I knew I wanted to wear my new chiffon skirt from the Merle Norman store in Draper (see this post), but it felt a little dressy for a daytime event.  So after tearing through everything in my suitcase, I settled on a bright coral t-shirt tank (tied in a knot to tone things down a notch), and of course went with my all-time favorite tried-and-true neon coral pumps, and gold accessories.  And to be honest?  I LOVE the way this outfit turned out and think it would be the perfect choice for a plethora of occasions-day or night.

Merle Norman Draper

YOU GUYS!  I have been dying to talk about the amazing day I had at the Merle Normal Boutique and Spa in Draper, Utah a couple of weeks ago.  I was of course thrilled when they invited me in for a facial and makeover, but I was not even close to prepared for the absolutely amazing experience I would have during my visit, how much I would love their little boutique, and how in love I now am with Merle Norman product!  If you live in Utah, you must go in and see them.  They offer FREE express facials and FREE makeovers-and really it is heavenly.  And while I normally don’t love the way other people do my makeup (weird, I know), when Chelsee was done with me, I was beyond giddy with the results.  So Utah girls, be sure to stop in and see them!  Below are some photos from my amazing visit and my favorite products that  Chelsee used on me (which are all now staples in my daily beauty routine!)…

Now onto the good stuff…THE PRODUCT!  I am pretty set in my makeup routine, so it takes a lot for me to switch up products.  But after Chelsee worked her magic on me, there were a few items that I knew were going to be staples in my everyday makeup routine, and so I wanted to share them with you guys!

1.  Liquid Shimmer:  This stuff is AH-mazing!  It’s my favorite highlighter that I’ve tried.  It goes on silky smooth and gives you that amazing candlelight glow.  Plus it looks great applied over your eyeshadow with a brush.  LOVE this stuff!

2.  Purely Mineral Makeup (in shade L10):  This stuff is like a dream!  The L10 shade gives you just a tiny bit of coverage and a tiny bit of shimmer.  I wear it over my foundation as a setting powder and it gives me the perfect amount of glow-plus it helps my makeup stay put all day.

3.  Lip Pencil Plus: I can’t say enough about this one.  I mean really, a lipstick on one end and a liner on the other?  Talk about convenience!  I have actually used this stuff for years and it’s a great go-to product.  Plus the lipstick is super hydrating, comfortable (a MUST for me), and really long lasting!

If you aren’t in Utah, be sure to stop into your local Merle Norman to check out their great products, or visit them online.  And if you are in Utah, then make sure you go and see Chelsee and the team for your FREE makeover and express facial!  I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

Repeat

Ok guys, I have a confession to make.  A lot of times when it comes to fashion, I can be rather boring.  When I find an outfit combo that works, I often times just continue to repeat it, or slight variations of it (over and over).  Take today’s post for example.  I love the way this dress looks back to denim and a pop of neon, and if you remember this post, then today’s outfit might look awfully familiar to you.  In all honesty though, I think it’s smart to remix your wardrobe-particularly if you are on a clothing budget or don’t love to shop.  And dresses are a great starting piece that are easy to wear over and over in lots of different variations across multiple seasons…

Secret Garden

Well, despite my best intentions last week, I just could not get it together to get any content up on the blog.  I thought I would have plenty of time to snap and share outfit photos, but we were so busy boating, rafting, fishing, hitting Glacier National Park, and enjoying family and friends, that there just wasn’t a lot of downtime.  So my apologies for the lack of posts!

Fortunately, J and I did manage to snap off a few outfit shots on the last night of our trip at my mom and dad’s house-including these photos taken in my mom’s GORGEOUS garden.  My parent’s yard is stunning and I wish I could take blog photos there all the time!  In fact, it was in this very garden that I took some of my senior pictures!  Crazy to think of how long ago that was!
