5 Perfect Fall Transition Outfits

Labor Day is coming up soon and that means fall is just around the corner! No, we aren’t going to tell you that you can’t wear white after Labor Day. That rule died along time ago, as it should have! Styling your outfits for the finicky weather can be very tricky. I’m sure many of you would love to jump full force into sweater weather, but it will be a bit until temperatures get there. We want you to transition into the autumn season smoothly and with style, so we put together five of the perfect outfits for that in between period.

Ina Jumper with our Chic Leopard Fold Over Clutch 

_RI_4671 (2)

Jumpers are the perfect limbo weather outfit. They work for all seasons! Wear this jumper by itself in higher temps or throw a utility jacket over it in late fall! You could even still wear this piece in the winter. Pair it with a leather jacket and big sparkly earrings, and you’ve got yourself a cute New Years Eve outfit. It’s an incredibly versatile piece!

Cloudwalk Dress

_RI_4653

The chambray on this dress and brown bag add a splendid fall touch! Quarter length sleeves will help you transition seamlessly into fall! When it gets a little colder, pair this dress with black tights and booties.

All I Want Dress 

_RI_4619 (1)

Another amazing dress for the changing seasons! The long sleeves are moving you slowly into the cooler weather. We paired it with open toed cutout booties. There is no better time to wear cutout booties than early fall. Your feet will freeze in the winter with them, so work them into your outfits while you can!

Serenity Top with our Naya Fold Over Liquid Leggings

IMG_9520

Off the shoulder tops are excellent for the awkward weather! This one is long sleeved, so you are slowly stepping into the fall fashion zone. The faux leather leggings and suede heeled booties add a fall touch to this ivory top!

Perfect Layering Tee with our Fringe Plaid Infinity Scarf

Now this look is really diving into fall. Take a light colored spring or summer top from your wardrobe and pair it with a scarf from a fall colored palette. VOILA! You have a savvy styled transitional outfit!

Don’t overthink fall fashion! Always keep a cardigan and scarf on hand and you will be ready for any weather that gets blown your way! 😉

5 EASY and HEALTHY Back to School Lunches

When you think of healthy meals, you probably think of slaving over the kitchen oven for hours and intense meal planning. You actually don’t have to sacrifice convenience for healthy meals! We put together 5 quick and nutritional meals for you! It only took us 45 minutes to put all five of these meals together. Make it a fun experience with your child and prep the meals together in a assembly line fashion! Teaching your child to meal plan while they are young is really beneficial for them and YOU. No one wants to still be packing their 25 year old son’s lunch. 😉 LOL

#1 Two hard boiled eggs, celery with peanut butter, and strawberries #1 Meal.jpg

Notice, we didn’t use expensive or complicated tupperware. We were able to get all the food in one simple little tupperware container!

#2 Turkey rollups- turkey, lettuce,tomato,dijon mustard rolled into a tortilla, cottage cheese, and cherry tomatoes

Meal #2

Make extra and pack the lunches for yourself too! Little ones want to feel like an adult. If you’re eating a certain food, they’ll want to too!

#3 Nuts, rice cakes with almond butter, and applesMeal EDItTTT.jpg

We mixed in a couple vegetarian options to change things up. Variety is important! Kiddos get bored easy!

#4 Chicken quesadilla- chicken with cheddar cheese and chips and salsa

Meal #4

To make it easy, we used frozen grilled chicken and warmed it up. Yes, cooking your own chicken is more healthy, but we would rather you cook a convenient healthy meal than packing a pizza Lunchable.

#5 Whole wheat pita bread with hummus, carrots, and grapes

Meal #5

Try to incorporate veggies into the meals! The earlier your child is introduced to vegetables and the more you incorporate them, the more likely they are to crave them!

Featured Blog Photo Edit

One last tip for you is to make sure your child doesn’t throw away any of his or her food. This way you can see what they are liking and not liking, to adjust for future meals!

These lunches are very inexpensive! We spent approximately $35 at Aldis on the ingredients for these meals. You could get at least 20 meals out of the ingredients we bought. Pack lunches for the whole family!

Let us know if you are going to try out these quick and easy meals! Also, if you have any recommendations for blogs, tell us in the comments! 🙂

What nail shape fits you best?

Getting your nails done is more popular than ever right now. Many celebrities like Kylie Jenner are sporting long coffin and stiletto shaped nails. Us ladies are being inspired  to try out different shapes and colors. If you’re anything like me, when I get to the nail salon I have no idea what color or shape to get.  I’m usually quickly browsing through Pinterest pictures trying to find something I like. They are usually ready for me before I can decide. I end up feeling pressured to pick something quick and then I end up wishing I would have chosen something else. Here is a guide to help you pick the perfect nail shape that will flatter your hands and work with your personal style!

Yes, getting your nails done can be expensive, but for us women, getting a mani and pedi is therapeutic and relaxing! It’s a way to express your personal style and feel a little more put together. It’s okay to treat yourself! Next time don’t feel bad splurging on your nails. But, if you’re someone who prefers to do their nails at home, try a mani kit subscription box! We did our research to find the three best ones! Julep Maven, Square Hue, and Color Me Monthly.

Five Neutral Outfits You Need in Your Closet

We love our neutral pieces. Neutral clothing is more versatile because everything matches! A primarily neutral closet makes getting ready in the morning so easy! You can wear any color lipstick you want and accessorize with bright colors. Wearing neutral pieces can also save you money because you can re-wear the items more often without people noticing. Neutrals also make your outfit look more high end. An all white or black outfit looks so classy and expensive!

A Monochromatic Outfit

We paired our black Tessa Sweater with our Sabrina Distressed Jeans and Chic Leopard Fold Over Clutch. Some people are scared to wear all black, but they shouldn’t be! It’s classy and slimming! Celebrities love this look. This all black outfit makes the leopard print clutch pop. Leopard print is making a come back!

Cut-outs and Bell Sleeves

Flatlay for blog 1

We paired our Teagan Top with our Sabrina Distressed Jeans and a black clutch. Grey looks great on everyone! It’s a color that works for every season. We love how sophisticated bell sleeves make an outfit look. Cut-outs are so in right now! You don’t need any jewelry with this amazing neckline. Plus, our Sabrina Distressed Jeans have little tears in the knees and an unfinished hem that gives the outfit an extra edginess!

Cold Shoulder Style, Ruffles, and Denim

fullsizerender-4.jpg

We paired our Hastings Top in light mocha with some Kancan jeans that are rolled at the hem! Rolling your regular skinnies can turn your jeans into a trendy crop pant! It gives the jeans a more finished look! Cold shoulders are so in right now! We love the unique ruffles on this one. It gives the neutral top a feminine touch.

Little Black Dress with Some Classic Polka Dots

img_7375.jpg

Our Presley Dress is everything! We love how this polka dot dress has tinier polka dots, so the design isn’t too in your face! Black as the color choice also makes the polka dot design more classic. This dress is so timeless! We love it paired with these Jack Rodger dupe sandals, but if you wanted to really dress this dress up pair it with some wedges!

Lace and Knit Details

fullsizerender-5.jpg

We paired our Anne Knit Top in taupe with our Cassy Skinny Jeans. This top is so pretty! The lace and knit detail adds a nice touch to this neutral top. This sweater is so versatile! It can obviously be worn in the winter and fall, but the white lace makes it doable for spring and cold summer nights as well! We love the lighter denim with the top.

It’s a lot easier to try trendy and riskier pieces when the pieces are neutral. Neutral colors look good on everyone and they never go out of season or style! We like to keep things classic when it comes to clothes and play up the look with accessories and makeup! Let us know which neutral outfit is your favorite!

3 Ways to Wear a Utility Vest

We love versatile pieces that you can wear different ways! Being able to style a piece several ways gives you more bang for your buck! It’s pays off to get creative. You will never have to wear the same outfit again when you mix and match different pieces. You know those fall days where it’s not cold enough to wear a jacket, but you need a little extra coverage for warmth? Vests are the perfect transition piece for those awkward fall weather days. We also love vests because they can instantly add a fall touch to your look and they are so easy to dress up or down! Our Raegan Military Vest is such a staple piece. We styled it three ways for you!

IMG_6490.JPG

Look #1 Summer Look

You can pair this vest with a dress for cool summer nights. We chose nude mule shoes to soften the look. Mules are very on trend this summer. We also paired it with a choker wrap. Choker wraps are also very trendy this summer and give the outfit a more fun vibe! Don’t forget a hat; hats put a finishing touch to an outfit! This is the perfect outfit for a summer BBQ, get together, or concert.

Look #2 Transitional Look

The second look is more dressy. This is a great transition outfit into fall. We would describe this outfit as straight edgy class. We love how the all black outfit makes the olive colored vest stand out. It looks like something you would see a celebrity wearing in a picture by the paparazzi. We chose to pair the outfit with black booties and a black chocker to keep with the all black classy vibe. This is the perfect outfit for a casual lunch or dinner with friends.

Look #3 Fall Look

We saved the best for last!! Or.. maybe we are just biased because we love fall clothes! This top screams fall with it’s suede elbow patches and distressed denim. We paired this look with some bohemian brown sandals to and a Louis Vuitton bag. Accessorizing from a brown palate pumps up any fall outfit! This is a great everyday outfit.

Feel Good! How to Take the Perfect Selfie

We know how important it is to feel your best. Being able to take that perfect selfie and show off your true beauty is important to a girl. It can be hard to be photogenic! We wanted to share our selfie tips so you can capture your beauty in a photo because after all a picture is worth a thousand words!

                                 Bad Selfie Lighting!                          Good Selfie Lighting! 

You want your selfie to show off the twinkle in your eyes and the glow of your skin! You can’t do this without good lighting! Photo lighting is better when the sun is shining towards you, not behind you! Where is some of the best selfie lighting? Your car! Don’t selfie and drive though! You can even put your air conditioning on high to give you a fanned model hair effect. Try it! We promise you will feel like Beyoncè.

IMG_5738.JPG

Another selfie tip is put one of your hands by your face. It gives the picture a personal touch. Try tilting your head a little and put the camera up a bit for a better angle! A higher angle will slim your face. Don’t forget, you can’t be a pro selfie taker without mastering the duck face! Totally kidding. 😉

IMG_5187

If you’re taking a selfie in your room, find a window. Natural lighting is best!

Here’s a secret! We all have those days where we don’t feel our prettiest. If you’re not feeling camera ready, use the Snapchat rosy cheek filter with the Snapchat black and white filter over top. Camera ready with no makeup needed!

The rosy cheek filter slims your face and makes your eyes sparkle. This selfie was taken with horrible office lighting, but you can’t even tell! Pictures always look great in black and white. It hides any flaws if you aren’t feeling on your selfie game! 

Did you know? They even came out with a phone case with lights all around it to help you get the perfect selfie.

Get this phone case at http://amzn.to/2rB2tn6.

There are free phone apps that are great for enhancing your selfie! Not everyone has time to do a full face of makeup or to find great lighting.

Airbrush and Facetune are great for quick edits! Some features they have are blemish correcting, eye brightening, and teeth whitening. Don’t even bother brushing your teeth anymore! LOL 😉
