J.Crew Final Sale

Hi darlings! Sorry for the lack of posts lately but MY GOD have I been busy with life, work, EVERYTHING. Any who, today on the blog I’m talking about items from J.Crew’s in store final sale section and what I think of the J.Crew final sale over all.

First off! The deals are INSANELY good, like too good to pass up. I’ve shopped the final sale section multiple times. There is never a time when I’m shopping J.Crew in store that I don’t skim through the final sale selection because you really never know what you are gonna find.

 

There’s a catch though…a small one but still a catch. Some items in the J.Crew final sale selection are returns and slightly and when I say slightly, I mean absolutely, positively unnoticable rips, loose fabric, a missing button, what have you. But like I said SLIGHT. And for me, that’s totally fine based on the crazy good deals I’ve gotten shopping this section! So, so many good clothes!! Here’s a few recent ones for you guys! But don’t forget all sales are final.

 

Bow-Shoulder Top

  • Original Price: $79.50
  • I Paid: $19.50

I LOVEEE this top! I get so many compliments on it. It’s the perfect cross between classy and edgy. I recently wore it on Easter and to work. It’s gorgeous and one of my fav shirts by far!

Checking In!

Hi darlings! Checking in! I know I’ve been MIA for a few days now but life’s been a little blah lately. I recently found out that my beloved pup, Molly has been diagnosed with chronic kidney failure. She’s 12 years old now and I know this is apart of life but man this sh*t is tough. Her days are still good and she’s still herself… her hyper, jumpy, whiney babe of mine. We don’t know all the details yet but we are remaining hopeful that it was caught early enough to keep under control.

Any who, I don’t mean to get all sappy and such so let’s get to something pertaining to fashion. Outfit details from the other day!!

The outfit

The details

I LOVE this pullover, turtle neck, flowy sweater. It was a hidden gem I found at Marshalls for under $25 months ago. I’ve gotten SO, SO much wear out of it. It can be worn casually, dressy or even paired with some lulus for errands. I’ve worn it all three of those ways! I wasn’t able to find a link for it. Sorry guys! But who know’s, you may come across it at Marshalls!

Express Skinny Black Jean

These black jeans from Express are literally my work pant go to. So much so I own two pairs…no lie. Any who, I LOVE them. They’re dressy, classy and flattering. They make for the perfect work appropriate pant without feeling like you’re in grandma pants lol.

Express Wedge

Yep! These new wedges again.. that I obviously can’t get enough of. But seriously, I can’t. I’m obsessed with the style, color, I get a ton of compliments on them. Best Part is? Well, there’s two. A PLUS for comfort and an A PLUS for price. WIN!

Tory Burch Gemini Link Tote

And to complete the look of course is my current favorite Tory Burch tote. This baby has held up so well! I’ve had it for months and has yet to show any signs of wear, even on the straps! The straps are where I find most my Tory Burch bags to wear out the most at first, but no signs of that yet! I’m a huge fan of the design of these bags also…it’s different but chic.

Currently Loving

Hi lovies! Happy Friday and Happy Easter! Today on the blog I’m sharing some items and trends I’m currently loving. And just a little side note before I get into it, bare with me..my style page is made and is under construction but nearing the finish. I’m perfecting it!! Any who back to the post! What I’m currently loving and surprise to no one NAVY, NAUTICAL, skinny jeans, wedges and statement necklaces!

J.Crew Striped Turtleneck 

I’ve been wearing the heck out of this top lately from J.Crew. It’s perfect for spring, It’s a turtleneck but it’s light and loose fitting. Goes great with anything..jeans, leggings, shorts, a vest, I could go on. It’s the perfect most comf casual top!

Express Jean Legging

SKINNY JEANS. These babies are new. I got them at Express for I think $80 and they fit perfectly. And to my knowledge, they’re currently 40 percent off (click the link to save!) which I could of gotten in on the deal before I bought them at full price 😦 There’s nothing I love more than skinny jeans paired with wedges, thats literally my go to trend.

Jack Rogers ‘Jacks’ Sandal

I mean do I really need to tell you guys why I love these Jack Rogers wedge sandal. I think you guys can figure that out for yourself. Come on, They’re GORG and go great with skinny jeans. I’m obsessed with that look! They feel a little small when you first wear them but don’t worry they’ll loosen up and break in. So far no blisters either!!

Accessories (Statement Necklaces)

So a recent new trend for myself..statement necklaces. I’ve come to the realization that a good statement necklace can make or break an entire outfit. I’ve been wearing them like crazy lately and have been getting a ton of compliments and tons of “oh, what a good idea!” and I’m just like tell me about it! They’re transforming. If your feeling like your outfit needs a kick add a statement necklace!

New Things !

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! We’re almost there..I also have a four day weekend headed my way!! Woo! But any who I had a very, very good Wednesday. A treat yourself type of day to be exact and let’s be honest we all deserve a treat yourself day once in awhile (or every week) I got my hair done and did some shopping and surprise, surprise I hit J.Crew and did some damage…shh don’t tell my boyfriend but MOVING on…. I’m so excited to share with you guys in this post what I got today, because literally OBSESSED with everything and obviously not sorry about it!

J.Crew Bow Shoulder Top

This bow shoulder top was on sale for $19.00. YOU can’t go wrong for that price at J.Crew, not too mention it’s like the cutest top ever. I couldn’t find it on the J.Crew website but my link will take you to what I think is the same top, but just in plaid.

Express Mid Rise Super Soft Jean Legging

Been on the hunt for a new pair of skinnies. Jeans is where it can get tricky for me aka short girl problems. But this pair I found today at Express fit like a glove. I tried on a pair of skinnies at J.Crew..the waist fit great but the bottom, at my ankles were baggy and it just looked off to me. SO, SO glad I found these ones today!

J.Crew Embroidered linen cotton pom cover up

I’ve literally been back and forth to J.Crew and each time I’ve been obsessing over their beach cover up dresses and say to myself, next time, next time, it’s not summer yet. But today I finally gave in and I’m not even sorry. How freaking cute is it, seriously?!

Express snake print strappy wedge sandal

Last but not least these super cute wedges I found at Express. I have a thing for Express wedges, especially in the nude color. I just find their wedges to be extremely comfortable  and durable for such a great price!

Good night !

Thank You Origins!

Happy Sunday loves! What a gorgeous Sunday it has been, it’s finally feeling like spring outside! Today on the blog I’m sharing my review of some great samples Origins sent me in the mail! I love them all. I feel like I haven’t beauty posted in a while so I’m excited for this post, what great timing!!

First off, how cute is the note they wrote me?!?!

img_2360

Here’s what they sent me!

A Perfect World SPF40 Age-Defense Moisturizer with White Tea Broad Spectrum SPF40

Unknown

So this one is my favorite that they sent me. This moisturizer is LIFE CHANGING. First off, any moisturizer that contains SPF is already a winner in my book. I only use moisturizers on my face that contain SPF and are oil FREE. But by far this Origins moisturizer has just moved to the top of my list. The texture is smooth and feels so good and hydrating when I’m applying it to my face. I literally look forward to it! It’s so refreshing and leaves your skin smooth and brightened!

Side note, completely sold on the ingredients. The main, silver tip white tea is said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, eliminate sun damage and improve the texture and firmness of your skin. Honestly, this moisturizer does all of that. And hey, it’s never to early to fight aging skin am I right!?

Checks and Balances frothy face wash

s1375682-main-zoom

Love this face wash. This cleanser is easy to use. It goes on creamy and once lathered into the skin, then comes the frothy part. It feels so good and cleansing on the skin. It’s not harsh or drying. I struggle with dry skin on my face, especially above my eye lids so I stay clear of any cleansers containing harsh ingredients. Which is why I love Origins! The formulas behind all Origins products are organic, natural and plant-based. I’m coming to realize anything from nature is kinder too your skin. Which brings me back to this face wash, the main ingredient, Tourmaline ( a semi precious stone) is believed to be vitalizing to the skin, fights age and makes for the appearance of more youthful looking skin. Too sum up, this cleanser is like you’re washing your face with skin benefiting vitamins in a liquid form..WIN!

Using this face wash accompanied by the white tea moisturizer afterwards is TRANSFORMING. Within  the first use of both together, I already noticed a difference. My skin felt smooth, even and hydrated. I love my skin and love Origins for making me love my skin. I swear, it’s an enjoyable and refreshing experience, I look forward to washing and moisturizng my face thanks to Origins.

High-Potency Night-A-Mins mineral enriched renewal cream

origins_sku_0J0W01_500x625_0

Obviously I apply this at night and by morning my skin is beyond moisturized, as if someone sat and moisturized my face while I slept the entire night. It smells amazing. Feels lightweight and calming on the skin. It’s a deep moisturizer. Best part, the main ingredient in this one is ORANGE. I love anything citrus, there’s just something so energizing and boosting about citrus. The smell alone is boosting. Oranges are high in antioxidants that help brighten the skin. Even drinking enough orange juice can help brighten your skin over time.

GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff

s1375625-main-zoom

So this eye cream is an Origins best seller and I can see why. Active ingredient, COFFEE. That’s right, coffee! Who knew?! But I’ll get back to that in a minute. I struggle with dark circles and puffy eyes so I was so excited when I saw this product in my package. It’s just what I was looking for! I’ve been applying every night right before bed. I leave it right on my night stand. When I’m rubbing it in under my eyes I feel a slight tingle/burn sensation…but it feels good. It feels like its working and sinking right into my skin. I wake up and my eyes and under eyes look BRIGHT. To the point where I don’t even feel the need to put on my under eye concealer. I’m a huge fan of the Origins GinZing products. I also have the GinZing energy boosting treatment mist, which I apply every morning and it has been my go to every morning instead of washing my face, which I save for at night now.

coffeebathmain

So back to the god of all gods the main ingredient, coffee. Coffee beans contain caffeic acid, which boosts collagen production. It is said even a simple cup of coffee can perk up your morning face. Who knew coffee was so good for your skin?! There’s even coffee masks you can make right at home!

Have a happy Sunday darlings and thank you Origins for the amazing products!

Jack Rogers Wedge Sandal

Hi babes! Quick post today but a good one. Two things, 1. I GOT EYE LASH EXTENSIONS and OMG obsessed would be understating it. They are gorggg and transforming but I’m going to share some pictures in an upcoming post so sit tight. And 2. I bought my first pair of Jack Rogers sandals today and that’s what I’m sharing and linking up for you loves today!

Jack Rogers ‘Jacks’ Wedge Sandal

I absolutely adore these sandals and so glad I picked these ones. The decision wasn’t easy. I was caught between a few styles but ended up with these gorgeous ones and I am in love. I picked them at Nordstrom for $147. Seriously ladies please buy yourself a pair of these, you won’t regret it!

img_2248

I keep getting a mental picture of pairing them with dark skinny jeans or white skinny jeans. I think the gold color compliments both those styles very well! Now only if the weather can start being more spring like so I can style them and wear them out that would be great.
