In Living Color

Yes, you know my typically struggle of getting away from wearing black. I feel like this dress still keeps me in my basic black comfort zone while throwing fun prints and pops of bold color in your face. The elastic around the wrists and the collar makes it kind of sporty, and yet the ruffle hem keeps it feminine. I kind of love it.

Also I kind of love the price. I got it for $9.99 the other day at Zara. I don't see it on their website (which is why I didn't link it) but try stopping by their store. They are having a huge sale on 95% of the store right now.

Also, I kind of love dressing like my dog. I mean, how cute are we?!?!

Yes, I'm weird.

Their Plumping Serum comes in 24 great shades that instantly look great on their own or over your favorite shade of lipstick. My friends at Hard Candy sent over two of their new shades (first kiss and skin deep) for me to try.

To be honest, I don't really need too much extra plump in my pucker. I've been blessed with rather full lips and often find that lip treatments that claim it plumps rarely works for me. But I have to say that, this one did add a little extra fullness. The gloss went one great and the colors were super flattering. I can't wait to throw these two shades into my lip hue rotation!

Adding In Some Color

It's so very rare that I'm not wearing black in one way or another. But I managed to put together an entire look with no black (and no brown or navy either!).  I've added in pops of rather neutral colors to add some warmth to my outfit. Let's break it down...

The Dress: I decided to wear a dress that is a rather neutral color, a deep green. In certain light it almost looks navy. The green paired with gold, white, and burgundy brush strokes makes it seem colorful and fun without being too bold or over the top. Hey, baby steps!

The Coat: Wearing a coat that's color is as soft as the texture (I mean who doesn't love teddy bear coats?!?!) it a double winner in my book. This very light pink coat also pairs so well with the red tones from the burgundy.

The Shoes: Who wants to wear boring black or brown shoes when you have the option of metallic? I love the way these gold loafers pair with the gold buttons and gold flecks of color on the dress.

The Tights: Lastly, we need to talk about legwear. Personally, I live for tights! I feel that they finish every outfit off...and depending on the color and style can really change an outfit completely. I paired this dress with some more burgundy...because, well why not?!

I want to know how you incorporate color into your everyday looks. Are you subtle about it? Do you go bright and bold? Do you not wear color at all?

Golden Globes 2018- What I Hope They Wear

The Golden Globes are this Sunday night, and I couldn't be more excited. This is always my favorite awards show to watch (mostly because it is for both TV and movies...and the speeches are often impaired by massive amounts of alcohol consumed). One thing that will likely be different this year are the fashions on the red carpet. A large majority of celebrities plan on wearing black, as well as the Time's Up pin to protest. Instead of standing out in color they plan on standing up!

Here are the looks I really hope they wear while on the red carpet. Let me know what you think and if you have any picks of your own!

TREND ALERT- The Utility Jumpsuit

2018 is finally here and we're bringing in the new year with a must have trend: The Utility Jumpsuit. Yes, I know that wearing something that looks like coveralls is not everyone's cup of tea...but this is a simple item that will definitely give you some style points this year. Be sure to add a cute belt, pair of killer heels, or adorable tennis shoes to bring this look to the next level.

Here are some of my favorite utility jumpsuits that retail for under $120.
