..Wedding Attire

The deets: Piperlime dress (similar, other floral dresses); Shoedazzle heels (identical); Zara clutch; Madewell sunnies; Essie "Playdate" nail polish.

It has actually been quite a while since I have attended a wedding I wasn't part of so dressing for the occasion is usually already taken care of. It was fun to pick a floral breezy dress for an outer banks wedding we went to a couple weekends ago. The location was gorgeous, the weather was lovely, and my boyfriend had his first groomsmen experience. Also, there was mini-golf, which is embarrassingly one of my best "sports," so that was awesome.

..Shorts & Heels

DSC_2412
The deets: J.Crew tank, shorts, (similar linen shorts) and hat; Zara heels (also love these Stuart Weitzman ones) Balenciaga bag; Ray-Ban sunnies.

I don't know what it is about shorts with heels, but I love the look and feel ultra chic whenever I try it out. It was THE most gorgeous memorial day weekend and I had a great time meeting up with childhood friends, trying out a new restaurant, & getting my BBQ on with my boyfriends family. It is going to be a good summer season if this kickoff weekend is the indictor.

..Bustier Bikini Tops

c580x362

Pool season has officially started as of this weekend and I recently booked a few trips that require a new swimsuit. As a girl with a larger bust I almost exclusively wear suits that have bustier bikini tops (like these options) so I can ensure everything stays right where it should. I also love this Mara one, this ASOS one, and this one, and this one both by Zinke. Cheers to the start of a great bikini season!

..A Little Lash Change-Up

Blog3

I know, I know. These are HUGE creepy photos of my eyeballs. It's weird, but the best way to show you the difference. The first photo is of a few applications of my day to day mascara go-to Clinique High Impact Curling in black. The second is just a teeny tiny bit of mascara on curled lashes (basically none) and a few well placed individual false lashes (not strips). It's not intensely different or a crazy super glam effect since there isn't any mascara on the falsies but it is a nice softer, fluffier, more whimsical option. Give it a try! These are my favorite individuals to use (and the ones I used here).

Bonus tip: when putting the glue on the individuals (black or clear glue) just put a dab on the back of your hand, let it sit for a minute and then using a tweezer, dip it and stick it!

..Black and White Wedges

c580x347

Who's ready for wedge season? Me! I have been scouring the internet (because who really goes IRL shopping these days?) for the perfect pair and have found so many cute black and white wedge options (also here here and here). I honestly have a lot of trouble finding a good wedge because I am very particular about the heel height & shape. There are hundreds of different pairs out there but I usually thumbs down 99%. These have passed the test. I realize some of them are pricier but you really only need one pair per summer if you go neutral and wedges literally go with every warm weather option so I think of it as an investment piece, like purchasing a good quality bag.
