Summer is in full swing and shoulders are being shown. My favorite type of summer weather is the one where my skin doesn't sweat off my face. The last few days in NYC, have been close to that. What do you even wear in that type of weather? In all my years of living and wearing clothes, I still can't figure out what to wear during a heat wave. The reason (I will just name one but there's plenty) why I love the easy breezy summer weather is because you can combine fun summer pieces. You can pull off hat, a flowy off the shoulder top or ::gasp:: denim. Summer is also a fun time to add pieces to your wardrobe that you wouldn't necessarily do in other seasons. LIKE my new pretzel bag!
Guys, you don't even understand. I stalked this bag on every site it was being sold on. It was a little out of my price range for the size and functionality of it. On one glorious day, it went on sale and I snatched it up without hesitation. I mean, I did give my boyfriend a list of reasons why I needed it- but that was just my way to calm him on the fact another purse was coming through the door.
Check out how I pulled my easy breezy summer look and new statement piece together!

Geez, I love denim. Not only do I love it but I want to buy all "on trend" pieces in it. With that being said, I found thee PERFECT pair of Denim Culottes at Target. They're the most softest pair of pants I own. Culottes are definitely a summer staple. You can take them from day to night in a matter of minutes. Especially with denim! Culottes can be very versatile and obviously we need more pieces like that in our closets. I paired them with a basic striped tank and some platform heels. I added a pop of color with the red bandana. You can check out my 5 Easy Ways to Style a Bandana post if you like what you see here.
I wore this look to the grocery store by total accident. I never mean to get "dressed up" when I run around doing errands but it happened. Coincidentally two females stopped me to compliment my look. It made my day for two reasons: 1) They didn't think I was a crazy person walking around in heels at the grocery store and 2) They weren't afraid to compliment another female. Just the way we need more versatile pieces in our closets, we need more females complimenting other females. Nothing beats a genuine compliment coming from another woman.

I'm leaving for a mini-getaway in two weeks and these babies will be in my carry-on. Target does it again with their affordable finds! Until next time......

A few weekends ago, the boyfriend (Danny) and I took a drive up to Beacon, NY. We've been there a few times and always love taking a day trip up there. The town of Beacon reminds me of those old towns you see in movies. Quaint little shops and cute streets. It was so extremely hot that day so I decided to wear the lightest colors in my closet. Blush and white, obviously. I love this combo! It's so girly. Finally sporting an off the shoulder blouse, as you can see too. It's been hanging in my closet for awhile now- well technically it hasn't been "hanging" at all. Have you tried hanging an off the shoulder blouse? Its so annoying- they constantly slip off. Anyhow, that has nothing to do with anything.
We spent the day walking up and down Main St. I stopped at my favorite Thrift Shop, we grabbed coffee and checked out the sights. It was "hard" picking which street to shoot on because they're all so pretty. Check out my look!

A few days ago, I added a few more rips around the sleeves. I felt like it needed more. What's great about making something "your own" is that you set the limits! I'm currently working on a DIY video/post on "How To Shred Denim" because it's super easy and fun to do. So stay tuned for that! Until next time...........

So........ how about these cute Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks??? Here's the thing, I looked everywhere for these lipsticks and couldn't find them. I was starting to think that Katy Perry fans were taking over the world and just going out and buying them all. Lucky for me, my two friends came through! The pictures in this post were taken on two separate days. So if the lighting looks a little off, you know why. Anyhow, lets get into this Lipstick Love post which is featuring the NEW collab with Katy Perry and Covergirl. I mainly rushed around looking for these pretty things because anything matte, I need in my life.
The first set consisted of "Cat Call", "Pink Paws", "Kitty Purry" and "Coral Cat" (my favorite). Aren't the names the best?
Check out the swatches below.
Top to Bottom: Cat Call, Pink Paws, Kitty Purry and Coral Cat
The second set of lipsticks my friend found at Target. She picked up five of them but somehow, I lost one in transit. Sad. I know. These colors were more my speed. The haul included "Sphynx", "Crimson Cat", "Maroon Meow" and "Magenta Minx". But seriously aren't these names GREAT?
Check out the second set of swatches.
Top to Bottom: Crimson Cat, Sphynx, Maroon Meow and Magenta Minx
So all in all some of the colors from the Katy Kat Matte Collection are gorgeous. The colors go on smooth and are buildable. I find that the lighter colors (Sphynx for example) worked better when layered with a liner underneath. They don't dry down to a full matte (that's my only issue). I would say that it's more of a satin finish. I had to reapply a few times throughout the day. The collection is worth stopping for and checking out. I mean, it's a fun collaboration if you're a makeup lover like me, we LOVE fun collabs. You can find these pretty matte tubes in your local drugstore for about $6.99 a piece. GO find your favorite Katy Kat Matte! Until next time....
