Summertime Means Rompertime

DSC_0009OOTD 3 OOTD 2 OOTD Front

Hello Beauties! 

It’s here! Stores are advertising their best, and shortest, dresses, skirts, and ROMPERS! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, we have made it through the deadly winter and we have been given the ultimate reward: sun, pool days, and no pants. What could be better??

I actually grabbed this beauty off a cluttered rack in Plato’s Closet for about $12. When I realized that it was made by H&M, the deal was sweetened.

The back dips with a couple of criss-crossy things, making it a little bit more interesting. Plus, it has freaking pockets. People… it has POCKETS. Anyone stuck with  carrying money, tampons, keys, and a cell phone will understand my excitement about pockets.

Back to the back (haha joke), I’d advise wearing a bralette, much like the one I bought at Aerie! I don’t think I can go on enough about how much I adore this brand, so I will leave you to test them yourselves. Buy one of their bras. Maybe even a bralette. Get their underwear for goodness sakes! You will not be disappointed.

For accessories I could not resist to grab my favorite (and only; they’re expensive) TOPSHOP necklace. Wearing anything black is the perfect excuse to bust out a bright-coral, chain neck-piece. To go with the necklace, I chose my new Ulta matte lipstick in the shade 250, which is a bright pinky-coral, and then to add a little shimmer I dabbed my favorite Tarte lipgloss in the color flush on my bottom lip.

And for the grand finale, these knit Converse high-tops. Yes, they are knit. Yes, I adore them. I call them my “sweaters for feet”. I’m thinking about doing a week of just my favorite/slightly crazy shoes, because I have a few. These just added a very classic summer vibe to the whole outfit, but they are unique enough to safely bet that no one else would have them. Plus, white shoes make your legs look tan, so I enjoy those benefits!

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,

What A Jumper!

Hello My Beauties!

Here’s to jumping back into the swing of things and actually posting for once! If you don’t understand the pun, you’ll get it soon enough.

Anyways, my Outfit of the Week is this amazing, and totally comfortable, Jumper! Now, I must admit, the colors are quite dark and not very spring/summer like, but the fabric is so light-weight that it compensates for that. Also, the back is open so I don’t know how I’d be warm enough in the Fall? Tell me what you guys think below!

I have never worn a jumper before, but I know that they are seriously making a comeback, so when I saw this in Target, I just went with it! (BTW Target has some really nice items out right now… just saying).

I would easily pair these with a pair of either playful or sophisticated heels, based on what you are doing, and a colorful statement piece like this necklace I wear in the photo! That way you can incorporate a little bit of warmth into this otherwise darker outfit. Also, don’t forget a sweater! You’ll need it on those colder summer nights.

My March Favorites!

Hello My Beauties!

Screen Shot 2015-03-30 at 7.58.17 AM

To kick off this last week of March I’m giving you my favorites of this month! There are some beauty items some food items, and some exercise items, so get hype!

My Favorites

O.P.I Nail Laquer in Passion: I don’t usually paint my nails, but when I do, I use O.P.I. (good on you if you got that reference). I’m favoriting any kind of Springy, floral, or pastel-y color of nail polish for the beginning for this month, and one of my favorite brands is OPI!

Almay Smartshade Concealer: Since I’ve started my very successful skincare routine (find it here), my skin has been so pretty and easy to deal with it’s unbelievable. So instead of going full-on foundation, I just use this concealer on my problem spots and under my eyes (AKA my designer bags) and blend it out with a brush! Super simple and saves a lot of time!

Sunglasses: I’m LOVING SUNGLASSES! Why?! Because sunglasses means that there is Sun, and Sun means it’s warm, and warmth means that it’s getting closer to Summer, and Summer means the following:

Tans

Shorts

T-shirts

Beach Days

Nice Weather

Sunglasses

I’m really excited if you couldn’t tell…

Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies: I bought 6 BOXES of these suckers and if that’s not a legitimate reason to have something in your favorites, I don’t know what is. I’m addicted to these things, to the point of eating way too much of them. But once you start, you can’t stop, so I blame the cookies.

Exercise (in general): I’ve started taking a personal fitness independent study through my school, so lately I’ve really gotten into the whole healthy “your body is a temple” kick, which is kinda hard to believe after I just ranted about Thin Mints. This month my favorite is everything exercise related: clothing, shoes, workout tapes, and most importantly, Blogilates!

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: It’s a Netflix Original. Tina Fey produced it. Ellie Kemper from The Office stars in it. What more needs to be said?

Thank you all so much for reading! Check out the video at the very top of the post and comment with your own March Favs! Until next time…

One Last Time!

Hello my Beauties!
Before the Fall takes over and then slowly transforms into winter, I really want to post one last summer outfit. So, wherever you are, here’s hoping its going to be warm for a little bit longer!

Bull Head High Waisted Shorts
High Wasted Shorts HERE!

High waisted shorts are a must have. I can’t even imagine my life without them. You can seriously pair these babies with any kind of shirt; cropped, normal, buttoned, anything! I have paired them with this super soft tank that I got from a cute boutique at my near by mall.

Since I have discovered the Kate Moss lipstick line by Rimmel London I have been wearing a lot more lipstick in a lot of different colors. Whenever I am wearing an outfit that could use a little more pizzaz, I reach for a intense lip-lacquer to tie everything together and bring a little more attention to my face. I mean, who doesn’t want to catch someone’s eye once and a while?!

 

Until Next Time,

Marin XO
