REMEMBERING THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE DIED WHILE SERVING

On this day I want to express my gratitude to those who have paid the ultimate price for the freedoms I enjoy. I also want to express my gratitude to their families for the huge sacrifice they make in supporting those who fight and defend our freedoms. It is easy for each of us to never really think about what a big sacrifice the men and women who serve our country make on a daily basis but on this day I hope each of us will take the time to say thank you. God bless America!

ALL BLACK

Its the freakin weekend baby!!! Can I just say even though its almost summer I still love wearing all black, especially if I'm in a hurry it literally takes no thought to put together I just throw it on and I'm good to go. I like to wear a piece of jewelry with some color when I wear all black so that the jewelry becomes the focus of the outfit, with this outfit I wore one of my favorite Lucky Brand necklaces. Lucky Brand jewelry is seriously my favorite, the price is good, especially if you get it on sale, and the quality is really great I've never had any pieces break and I have worn them for years. I really appreciate all your nice comments it means a lot. Have a great weekend!

I'VE GOT THE BLUES

I'm obsessed with this dress, I never really shop at J Crew cause its kinda pricey but I just thought I'd check it out cause I hadn't been there forever and I'm so glad I did. This dress was on clearance and such a good deal. I love it because its crazy comfortable and you can wear it so many ways. Wear it casual, dressy, add a belt, the possibilities are endless really. The color is so perfect for spring/summer it just makes me happy! Can I just say these are one of my favorite pairs of sandals, they are Betsey Johnson (oh how I love her) she just speaks to my fashion soul. One day I will meet her I just know it, I have to. Thanks for stopping by!

ACCESSORIES TIE IT ALL TOGETHER


How is it Monday already? I know I say that every week but the weekends go by way too fast! Can I just tell you how in love I am with turquoise jewelry, its my absolute favorite. I love to wear a really casual outfit and spice it up with accessories, that way the focus is on my favorite jewelry pieces. Everyone needs a white button up, you can wear it with everything and in every season, definitely a staple in my closet. I also wanted to mention that if you love these shoes as much as I do and want to get them, order a half size smaller than you normally would or they will be huge. I hope you have a great start to your week, thanks so much for checking out my blog.

HOW TO STYLE YOUR MAXI SKIRT AND HIDE THE BOOTY JIGGLE

I know I'm not the only one who loves maxi skirts. I love almost everything about them. The one problem I have noticed with some of my skirts is the fabric is sometimes so thin that any ounce of cellulite on the booty shows through the skirt. They also don't cover any "jiggling" that goes on back there when your walking around.  I know what your thinking, just wear Spanx underneath the skirts, but honestly who wants to constantly be wearing spanx. I have found few ideas on how to wear maxi skirts without having to wear spanx and the best part is it will cover the cellulite/jiggling that's happening on your back side.


First option is to pair your maxi skirt with a longer cardigan that can cover the backside, you can also do this in the spring and summer, just find a short sleeve cardigan.


The next option perfect for spring/summer, pair it with a cute kimono.
 
 Another great option is to find a pleated maxi skirt, that alone will hide the booty jiggle.
 
High/Low shirts are really popular right now and are perfect to pair with your maxi skirt.  
The styles below would work better in fall/winter but the longer sweaters are a great option to cover the booty jiggle.  
I have found that if you have maxi skirts that are more of a chiffon/ flowey material you don't have to worry about your backside acting up because the skirt flatters your behind all by itself.   
Another great chiffon/flowey maxi skirt, very flattering.



A great casual/funky option is to tie a plaid shirt around your waist.


 
I hope this helps and you can now rock your maxi skirts without feeling self conscious about your backside.

MY TOP CHOICES FOR SWIMWEAR THIS SUMMER


I can't lie I'm not looking forward to putting on a swimsuit this summer, I'm super nervous about it. I have been searching online and I found a few options that I think might work. I'll let you know if I actually find one I dare wear out in public. First I have to get the courage to go and try them on in real life with those awesome lights they put in dressing rooms, hello cellulite!!!!! I'm hoping something will fit ok on this post twins body of mine. I love swimming and I'm excited to take my twins swimming but I might just end up wearing a full body wetsuit. Is anyone else dreading putting on a swim suit as much as I am?

COMFY CAN BE DRESSY TOO

Happy Friday, I'm so excited its the weekend! Todays outfit looks like I'm dressed up but it feels like I'm in my pajamas, I'm addicted to these drapey kind of pants. They are so flattering on any body type, and I love them because I will still be able to wear them even after I lose all of my baby weight. I love these shoes so much because they are the perfect height and the wedge makes them really comfortable to wear all day, they also dress up any outfit. I hope you have a great weekend, see you next week.

MY NO MAKEUP MAKEUP LOOK




 

Happy Monday I hope your weekend was fun! I had a great weekend spent with family. Friday we went to the zoo with my in laws and neices, it was so much fun, the weather was perfect and the babies loved being with their cousins and hanging out outside. Saturday I went to a wedding shower for my cousin, it was a blast hanging out with my sisters and cousins that I don't get to see as often as I would like to.

Today's post is my go to makeup most of the time lately. I like it because it takes like two minutes to apply and you don't really look like your wearing makeup but you look refreshed and well rested.  This look is perfect for summer, and really anyone who is in a hurry in the morning.

Step 1: St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse-pump the mousse into your palm and rub all over your face and neck, and make sure to wash your hands after you apply it to your face. I love this stuff because when your face looks tan I don't feel like you need to wear any foundation or powder.

Step 2: Josie Maran Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon -I use Fair 1, I apply this under my eyes, around my nose, and if I have any other red areas. I don't set it with a powder or anything I just leave it because I like my face to look dewy and natural when I wear this makeup look.

Step 3: Urban Decay Naked Flushed - I put a little bit of the middle color on the bottom of my eyelid, and the bronzer color where the sun would normally hit. Under my cheek bones, on my jaw bone, my forehead and a little on the sides of my nose. Then I put a little bit of the pink color on for blush. I apply all of this very lightly so its just a fresh glowy look.

Step 4: Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in blush orchid. I am obsessed with tinted chapstick, you can get this stuff everywhere, Target, Walmart.

Step 5: Mac Cosmetics Zoom Lash - I usually only apply one coat of mascara with this natural look.

I LOVE SPRING

I'm so in love with the spring weather and all of the beautiful flowers everywhere! We have been taking the twins on a walk any day that the weather allows and man does it feel good to be soaking up some vitamin D. It literally makes my heart smile! Last night we took our walk as the sun was setting so it was a little bit chilly, this sweater and pants were the perfect outfit for our stroll around the neighborhood. I love this time of year and all the time we get to spend outside, I'm so excited for all the fun activities will get to do with the babies, like going to the zoo, swimming, anything in the sunshine sounds fabulous to me. Have a great weekend and thanks so much for checking out my blog.
