How to Wear a Slip Dress in Fall

In a previous post, I relayed my love for the ever popular slip dress and knew I had to make this look fall appropriate so I can continue to wear my favorite lil number even as the days grow colder.

First off, I loved my cream dress so much, I decided to get one in black which is perfect for a more moodier season. Since the dress is quite light and airy, I also layered a cropped shirt underneath which is a beautiful lace and adds some contrasting texture. If I get cold, which is highly probable, I grabbed this army green trench coat to pop on top for yet another layer.

Lastly, the accessories are really what make this outfit fall acceptable. From the top, we have this gorgeous light grey suede cap which keeps my head a little more insulated. I brought along a pair of sunglasses (it’s still sunny in fall y’know) and for footwear, went with a black suede ankle bootie. Accessories are the easiest way to transform an outfit and these particular ones are super affordable and can be found at Zaful.

L8r Sk8r

Sometimes there are so many things I want to do and learn, but I simply lack the amount of time to do it. However, this summer my boyfriend and I watched King of the Road and I became determined to be at least an ounce as cool as some of those guys on that show. I decided that this summer I would take the time to teach myself how to skateboard so I borrowed a Santa Cruz board from my boyfriend and taught myself in nearby parking lots until I knew how to ride! Little accomplishments like this make me happy.

Which leads me to my newest pair of Vans x Madewell shoes! I am so in love with them. I wanted a pair of sk8-hi’s and when I saw this dreamy denim collaboration version I knew I had to have them. To go with them, I wore these denim jeans (they are boys haha) I found at Goodwill for $3 and DIY’d the frayed hemline. Together, I think both of them create such a rugged, casual chic look.

Wishlist #4: Fall

*Click product for link!*

Happy Monday, lovelies!! I am seriously craving boots and sweaters and hot cocoa right now as I sit in unbearable 90 degree heat. Hence, this moody autumn collection of items I came across while browsing some stores. 

Just saying, I need those Yeezy boots in my life pronto…or at least some decent knockoffs/look-a-likes. If you have any idea where to find a pair that I don’t need to spend a pretty penny on, please let a sister know! They look like the perfect fall-winter staple for sure!

Golden Hour

My favorite time of day is when the sun is starting to go down, bathing everything in a beautiful warm glow. It is no wonder photographers and videographers refer to this time of day as the golden hour or magic hour. There is something so enchanting about this lighting and I think everything looks so lovely. I waited all day until golden hour to shoot these photos because I wanted to capture this beautiful lighting!

Today’s relaxed look features my favorite oversized t-shirt featuring A$AP Rocky. I love his music and think it’s also a great conversation starter piece. I paired it with these tan track pants and my favorite Onitsuka Tiger shoes.

Slip Away

I am not one to jump right into a trend, however I made the exception for the ever popular slip dress. I instantly fell in love with the romantic vibe it exudes with the silk fabric and blush pink color. To amp it up even further, I paired my beige lacy bralette underneath that ever so slightly peaks out from under the satin.

In order to make it perfect for everyday wear, I paired it with a white bomber jacket, black bandana and chunky heels (which are my absolute favorite shoes at the moment)!

Review: Diamond Hair Styler

Hello, lovelies! I have something to confess to you…

I have been using the same $20 Conair hair straightener for the past 8 years.. It has been the only flat iron I have owned and it is so old it is starting to rust on the sides. I was a firm believer that if it works than why replace it. However, when Irresistible Me offered to upgrade my tool, I took the opportunity and I honestly think this hair tool has changed my life?

I have taken the liberty of throwing out my previous tool for this new ceramic hair straightener and it’s safe to say I was blown away when I first used it. I was used to having to wait a good 45 seconds for my flat iron to heat up and this new Diamond hair straightener took a mere 15 seconds and has the ability to heat up to 450 degrees. The digital display and green light up display make it super easy to use.

After flat ironing my hair as I usually do, the first thing I noticed how was how remarkably smooth my hair was! The ceramic plates of the tool are coated with crushed diamond particles and tourmaline and this protects your hair by keeping all the natural oils and moisture intact. Even visually my hair looked a lot smoother and sleeker.

Not to mention, this flat iron had a lot of nice safety features that my older, cheaper tool did not have. It has cool touch grips, a long 360 degree swivel cord and an automatic shut off after 30 minutes of inactive use. All these features make it much easier to handle.

Notable Features of the Diamond Hair Styler:
  • Diamond Hi-Tech coating on ceramic plates to protect hair and maintain natural oils
  • Digital display
  • Instant heat up (15 sec.)
  • 360 degree swivel cord
  • Thumb print and cool tips
  • Automatic shut off in 30 minutes

Upgrading my flat iron has definitely maximized my time in the morning by allowing me to get faster a bit quicker but most importantly, my hair stays looking good all throughout the day! If you happen to be in the market for a new hair tool, I highly recommend you take a look at this Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Tool! xo

Adventure: Bermuda

Stepping off the cruise ship and onto the dock in King’s Wharf, Bermuda was a worldly experience. It was like coming out of a portal into a utopia of sunshine and happiness. Seriously. This island was enchanted and filled to the brim with friendly people and stunning scenery. We spent a total of 3 days docked at the island and let me tell you, it was not enough time. I wish I had at least an entire week to explore every unique crevice of the land.

We arrived in the midst of one of their national holidays and 2 day cricket match so since a lot of locals had a couple days off, our plans were a bit jostled. We ended up spending 2/3 days at Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda’s most beautiful beach with its’ famous pink sand.

I do not travel as often or as nearly as I would want to, but experiencing this place head on has definitely left me with this insatiable desire to go to more places and experience the beauty of the world. So grateful to my grandmother for giving me the opportunity to travel to such a beautiful place. ❤
