Ellie September

Outfit c/o Ellie Activewear

Hello Friends!  

Today, I'm sharing the September box from Ellie Activewear, and it seriously it my favorite one yet!  The more muted colors certainly have me in the mood for fall, and the yoga-inspired gear is just perfect for me.  The top is not something I would have picked out normally, but I love the slouchy back, because thanks to Ellie, I now have SO many cute sports bras with adorable back detailing!  And the nice thing is, you can wear the slouchy part in the front or the back depending on your mood!    The pants are probably my favorite yet, as well, because they're longer (I love long yoga/running pants), and they are the softest fabric ever.  The whole outfit was the perfect thing to stick in my suitcase on a recent trip to the beach!

I know September is coming to a close in just a few short days, but you can still get the September box now!  Also, they're running a GREAT promotion right now: anyone who signs up now until September 30th will get a free full size Ellie Swell water bottle for free!  Head over there now.  I'm serious.  I love this subscription box!

younique moonstruck epic mascara review

Hello friends! 

I hope everyone's week is going well!  I'm super excited to be planning an upcoming beach trip, but staying super busy with work!   My patients have been keeping me on my toes, as of late! :)

I wanted to share a new product with you today.  I had never tried younique products before, but the lovely Christine sent me over their moonstruck epic mascara, as well as their lash serum to try!  I'm  currently using the lash serum daily and will be back to let you know the results of that in a bit, but for now, I'm going to rave a bit about this mascara!

Oh goodness, I struggle with mascara.  I don't have super short lashes, but they're pretty straight.  If there's one thing I despise in a mascara, it's flaking and clumping.  Ick.  I can't stand unnatural appearing lashes.  And if, by the end of the day, I have raccoon eyes from the it, you better believe I'm not trying it again!

I've been super impressed with this mascara!  It goes on SOOOO smoothly, and looks incredibly natural, while adding the little bit of a curl and definition that my lashes need.  No flaking, no raccoon eyes, no clumping.  I love it!  I'm super excite to see the results of the lash serum too, so I'll be back soon to share that (and its results) with you too!

Have a lovely week, all!

Floral Shimmers

 Dress: eShakti (similar, similar, similar) // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Necklace: J. Crew (similar)

Hello friends!

It's already mid-week, which means this week is shorter than normal!  So thankful for a shorter work week, as I'm already counting down to the weekend.

Today I'm sharing this adorably feminine, vintage-inspired georgette dress.  It fits perfectly (benefits of eShakti- you can customize any dress to make it your own perfect fit!) and is so incredibly elegant.  I love the gold embossed flowers that shimmer when the skirt moves.  The ruffles at the top also add the perfect amount of femininity without being over-the-top.

I added some fun accessories with a floral statement necklace and bubble gum pink heels.  I think this is the perfect outfit to wear to a wedding or special event.  Although this particular print is no longer available, I've linked three different options above with the same or similar style, but different prints!

Vintage White


 Dress: Anthropologie (similar here & here)  // Hat: J. Crew // Bracelet: Lilly Pulitzer

Happy Labor Day Weekend, my friends!

This week, I have taken every opportunity to wear all of my white and lacey clothing, and squeeze the very last bit of "summer" out of summer! :)  

This dress reminds me of Anne of Green Gables.  I feel elegant, feminine, and just so old-fashioned in it.  It fits perfectly, with the most perfect swinging skirt.  The square neckline is so Edwardian, and makes me feel like I live in a different era... which is something I often wish!  :)

Enjoy every bit of this weekend!  And wear all that white while you can!
