June & July Favorites - 2017

"Every failure is a lesson. If you are not willing to fail, you are not ready to succeed."

Happy Thursday sweetie pies! I hope you all had an awesome day! You guys know that I love having girl talk and sharing my most recent obsessions. From fashion to beauty to lifestyle, I have favorites that I have been loving for the months of June and July. Make sure to check them out below!

1. Pink Satchel Handbag
If you have joined the sweetie pie family recently, then you may have noticed this adorable handbag. Originally from Charming Charlie, it was at a very reasonable price, just under $40! I have been styling this bag with some of everything due to its soft pastel color and size. It is the perfect size for an everyday bag in my opinion - not too big or too small. It also comes with a long strap to wear over the shoulder.

2. Mirrored Sunnies
When it comes to the summer time, I neeeeedddd my mirrored sunnies! No summer #OOTD would be complete without them! They can instantly make a t-shirt and denim shorts look super cool with minimal effort! Yes please!

3. Polka Dot Ruffle Sleeve Blouse
I have already shared this blouse once on the blog but I absolutely love this blouse! It is definitely one of my go to pieces for work. It is fun, flirty and totally comfortable! I was a little nervous that I wouldn't really love this top but I was so wrong! I encourage any fashionista to give this blouse a try!

4. Royal Blue Fit and Flare Dress
Now it is no secret that I love fit and flare dresses but this one is definitely my favorite one to date because of all the details. I love the V cut, lace crochet, and the color! I have worn this dress more times than I probably should say so we will just leave that to the imagination.

5. Cantu Leave In Conditioner
I have been loving this product for my hair. It makes my hair super soft and smells amazing!

6. Aborewen Embellished Sunglasses
The "Extra AF" part of me LOVES these sunnies! They are so glam and so fabulous! I have been wearing these with everything from tshirts and jeans to glam it up. Or I style it with a beautiful dress or romper. Not to mention they are super affordable at only $25!

7. Aromatherapy Lavender and Chamomile Lotion
I love applying this at night after a nice bubblebath. It is super relaxing and helps me to go to sleep. Plus I get to enjoy the relaxing fragrance as I am falling asleep without having to burn a candle. Plus you sweetie pies know that I love me some lavender!

8. Girl Boss Book 
I haven't finished reading this yet but I am loving it thus far! If you are perhaps living under a rock for the past few years, the owner of Nasty Gal has written a book and it is definitely worth the read!

9. Mambi Sticker Book
Shoutout to all of my planner junkies out there! You guys know that I am a sucker for a good layout. These stickers make planning so much fun! Even though each sticker book has a theme, there is still a variety of stickers so I definitely love that!

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
