Bold Color Combinations

I’ve been on a cobalt kick lately so this dress was calling my name, especially when I got it an additional 50% off sale! I couldn’t find a necklace that looked right with the dress until I paired it with this fun, neon yellow piece. I think it’s a really fun color combination and a pretty sweet way to start off the week!

#MomentsOfChic with Piperlime

I’m really excited to be collaborating with Piperlime today as I’m pretty much obsessed with everything in their store. I’m not a huge fan of animal print so I was surprised by how much I liked this dress. I love the cobalt and black mix and it is so comfortable and easy to wear. And these suede black booties go with everything so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of them!

TGIF and have a great weekend!

Hot Pink Moto and Navy Pleats

Is pink and navy not the best color combination?! And with sequins added in, this might be one of my favorite looks. 🙂

Statement Necklace and A Graphic Tee

This outfit is a bit out of my comfort zone but I really love it! I don’t wear maxi skirts very often but I love the placement of the ruching here and I feel like the form fitting shape works on my 5’1 and 1/2 (ha) frame.  I think this skirt would flatter a wide range of body types and can be dressed up or down.

I’ve been eyeing this Mint & Lolly popsicle necklace for a while and love the mint and cobalt color combination. It comes in two other fun color combinations as well and they’re all on sale now! Mint & Lolly was recently started by three sisters who clearly have amazing taste in jewelry. They have an amazing range of candy-inspired colorful (and affordable) jewelry. And they offer free US shipping as well!

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil

I was recently given some Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products to try and I have to say I am in love with how silky and smooth they’ve been making my hair feel. The products don’t weigh down my hair or make it feel greasy; they just make my hair feel more soft and silky which is exactly what I want in my hair products.

I have dry hair so I’m always looking for moisturizing hair products. The problem is that I find that those products often weigh my hair down. The Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products moisturized my hair without making it look oily or feel heavy. I was actually complimented on my smooth and shiny hair in the elevator by a couple of strangers! 🙂

I love a good headband braid but I have extremely frizzy hair so I have a hard time creating the smooth braid I want. I like that with a headband braid, I have my hair off of my face while still having my hair down and framing my face nicely. When I flat iron my hair, the frizz usually pops back up 20 minutes later which is definitely not the look I’m going for! I’m not very “hair savvy” and I get frustrated when my hair frizzes up so quickly. When I used the Dove products, my hair remained frizz-free all day after using the iron. And of course made it a lot easier for me to create the headband braid as my hair was smooth and a lot less frizzy thanks to the Dove products.
