Happy Halloween!!!

So I went to Disneyland a few weeks ago, I had already been planning my Halloween costume for a while, but while at Disneyland it sealed the deal!!

Minnie Mouse is by far my favorite Disney character! She is timeless! My sister and I randomly went shopping at Marshall's a few months ago and found these dresses! How perfect right?!
 
Next I picked up the ears from Disneyland and then came home to accessorize! I added a black belt and black underskirt to give it fluff!
 
Now I did alter it just a bit, I didn't wear yellow shoes. My reply to that is that this is my version of a glamorous Minnie Mouse with black leggings and black boots!
Had to add some very glam fire red lipstick for the finishing touch!
Hope everyone has a fantastically magical Halloween! Stay safe!

Cotton in the Fall!

Ever since I was a little girl I have grown up around cotton, whether it was my families cotton fields or the fields near my house, I have ALWAYS been near cotton. This photo shoot location was a MUST!
I have a new found obsession with the color orange.
I found this adorable skirt at Target and instantly fell in love..
I decided to add some accessories to really help this outfit pop!
I have to thank my wonderful photographer, my mom because she is always so good with photoshoot locations and taking my photos. She rocks!!

Curls and Smoke!

Today I had extra time to get ready, which was shocking... Not really sure how it happened to be honest, either way I am excited for the way my hair and make up turned out!!!
Everyone knows i'm a fan of smokey eyes! Today was no different!
For my hair, I curled it just like normal, then twisted two sections of it on each side and made this adorable style.
Close up!

A Night on the Lake.

I know the typical rule of thumb is to not wear white after Labor Day, however normally it is cold by now.  So in light of the fact it is the middle of October and HOT I decided to wear white!!!
This outfit is perfect for a semi casual night out!
I never thought I'd ever wear heels with shorts however I really like the look of wedges with shorts!
Today was 90 degrees and although I love my summer clothes, I'm ready for winter!
 
Outfit:
Ruffled shirt: Love Culture
Shorts: Abercrombie & Fitch
Cami: Target
Shoes: Love Culture

I absolutely love stripes! I found this jacket yesterday at Target and was so excited! This is what I paired it with!
Took this striped jacket and added black leggings to dress it up!

Add a necklace then you're done!
 
This just became one of my favorite outfits!

Trench Coat Happy!

Today I was so excited when I walked outside because it is actually breezy! Fall is probably my favorite time of the year! Bring on the fall outfits!
I love trench coats and the look they add to an outfit!
I have a new found love for skinny jeans. I never really liked the way they looked at the bottom so I decided to role them up and make them ankle pants!
I absolutley adore these shoes! They are just enough flare to make this outfit fun and bold!
I went with a classic smokey eye! Today I mixed charcoal and green to make this combination!
Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Make Up Tutorial!

I can't belive I am doing this! I do not think I have ever taken such close up photos without make up! However, I want everyone to see how easy it is to recreate my look!

 
Step 1: Apply foundation to your face to make your skin look evenly fresh. 
Step 2: Then apply a light colored eye shadow all over the lid of your eye.
 
 
Step 3: Take a brown colored eye shadow and apply it to the crease of your eye.
 
 
Step 4: Take a fun color, like green and add it the small top part of your lid.
 

 
Step 5: Add some eyeliner to the bottom of your eye.
 
 
Step 6: Dont forget the mascara! Dont laugh either, but I seriously do blowdry my eyelashes after putting on mascara!
 
 
 
Step 7: Put mascara on your bottom lashes!
 
 
Step 8: You're DONE!!!
 
 
Its a long process but it pays off once you're done! :) Have a great rest of the day!
 
Products I used:
Foundation: Clinique
Eye Shadows: Ulta, E.L.F.
Mascara: Maybelline
Blush: Benefit
Eyeliner: E.L.F.

Little Black Dress!

Every girl needs a little black dress! I happen to have a few, but this by far is my favorite!! I love the pleats in the front and back as well as the pockets.  Perfect for a night out on the town!

 
Take a 1-1/2 inch curling iron and add some daring curls, then take your pick from a brown smokey eye or a charcoal smokey eye and create a glam night out look!
 
 
Now don't forget about the shoes! Shoes can make or break an outfit! I'm a fan of wearing either the same color shoe as the dress or adding some flair. Since my clutch is already a bright color I decided to keep it classy with the plain black shoes.
 
 
 
 
 
Have a great day everyone!!
