Vacation Vibes

Outfit Details

Gladiator Sandals – only one size left, similar here & here // Bandeau Bikini // Cover-up – just sold out, similar here & here // Talk to the Sand Hat

Spring breaks and vacations are just around the corner and I was so excited to get in my vacation items that I ordered. I have been staring at this bikini for weeks now and finally bought it. I am SO happy that I did! It is gorgeous, made of great material, and perfect for any vacation. This super cute bikini also comes in black! I am so upset that this cover up is already sold out. I ordered it on Thursday! I have linked the original site as well as similar items just incase it comes back in stock. I love how light weight it is and how cute the pom pom’s are.

I have a little obsession with beach hats and found this one at Vestique. It is completely sold out but I found it at Walmart too. These gladiator sandals are too die for. I got them a few years ago and they only have one pair in one size left in stock so I linked a few others.

Vacation is always something I look forward to and I can’t wait to wear my beautiful new items when I go away!

What are your favorite vacation must haves? What kind of bikinis do you want to see more of this summer?

Matte lipsticks have been my go to lip for a while now. I absolutely love them and love that they don’t transfer like lip glosses and lipsticks. I do still use lipsticks and will do another post about my favorite lipsticks, but mattes are my favorites. I tend to go for the more nude/pink colors but also love a good red lip. I have tried a bunch of different companies but the ones I listed are the ones I tend to buy over and over again!

I have had the Kylie Lipkits for a long time. I really like them and think she has made them a lot better since first releasing them. I also LOVE the Revlon matte lipsticks and the Tarteist lipsticks. Tarte is amazing and all of their products I absolutely love!

Right now, my husband and I are living with my parents. We just closed on our home and are doing work there, so we won’t be moving in right away. My makeup is all over the place currently, but I have all of my makeup in the 5 Drawer Letterpress from Michaels. These desk drawer/Jewelry Organizers help me keep my items neat and in order. I bought them from TJ Maxx a few years ago but there are similar ones like thisthis, & this.

 

What are your favorite matte lipsticks? Have you tried any of these?

Business Casual Attire

Details

Blazer // Jeans // Shirt // Shoes – Charlotte Russe last year; Similar here here // Similar Necklace here & here // Optional Belts herehere, & here

A business casual look is finally here. This is something that I would wear to work on the daily or even for a drink out. It is classy yet not so business-like. My company allows casual business attire-wear when we are in the office and I look forward to those days!

I absolutely love these jeans. They are comfortable and perfect for everyday wear or a night out. They even have some stretch in them! I am wearing a size 4 (27) and they fit a bit high-waisted which I love. I am obsessed with the ruffle detail on the sleeves especially with a blazer where you can see the small details. I am also wearing a medium in this but wish I sized down for a better fit. Calvin Klein has always been my go to for blazers. They are made so well and last forever. I am wearing a 4 here.

What is your favorite business casual look? Are there any other looks you would love to see?

Beautiful Blue Lace Dress

Dress // Shoes – Liliana; no longer available. Similar Shoes  

They have this amazing dress in blue, white, red, and black. I have been obsessing over this for a while now and have wanted to buy it in white. I knew I had a good friends bridal shower coming up and knew this dress would be perfect for the occasion. I received so many compliments on it and got asked so many questions on the fit. I got this in a medium, but it was actually kind of big. I pinned it so you can’t really tell but i found myself constantly pulling it up throughout the day. Based on my measurements and their size chart I should have gone with a small. Make sure to always check the chart against your measurements! Overall I absolutely loved this dress and purchased it in the red color too! Perfect for any occasion and so beautiful.

These shoes are so comfortable. I actually purchased them last June for my bridal shower and they are a constant now. I bought them from Nordstrom Rack and they are called “Liliana.” They are no longer available but I linked an almost identical pair.

Do you love lace dresses? Have you been looking for a dress like this?

Wedding season is upon us! I remember when I got married in September and all of the events for our wedding were coming up, I had the hardest time finding white dresses I loved. So, if you are getting married or even just need a white dress, look no further. I have linked my favorites in this post, but if you look on their websites they have other gorgeous white dresses too. I always find the most on Lulus!

I actually wore some of these dresses for my rehearsal dinner & honeymoon! See below so you can see how they look on. I apologize for the dark picture, it was taken in my church with a phone camera. But I loved both dresses and would refer them to anyone!

Let me know if you have any questions about the sizing or fit at any of the stores! What are your favorite white dresses?

 

XO,

Nina
