It shouldn't too difficult to see why I picked this outfit from What Jo Craves as my fav this week.  This photo is about more than the gorgeous flowy dress.  This photo is a work of art. nThe simple lines of the dress and the little peaks of lavender in the fields is photo-perfection.

Summer Crop Top and the Cutest Print EVER

I feel like I mastered the art of wearing a crop top...like a boss!  Well, I mastered it if your goal of wearing a crop top is to not show any mid-drift at all.  I do like that if you wear a crop top with a high-waisted skirt you don't have to worry about adjusting your tucked in shirt every time you move your arms.
I went back and searched my blog to make sure I have not made this claim before (and it's amazing that I have not), but this skirt has the cutest print ever.  I mean...c'mon...little tiny sunbathers?

Top: Jack by BBDakota c/o ShopBop (exact on sale for $25!)

July Ipsy Glam Bag Review

July 2015 Ipsy Glam Bag review

July 2015 Ipsy 2

Octavio Molina Hair La Playa Salt Spray (2oz ~ $7.25): I am never really sure how to use sea salt sprays.  I don't really ever feel like they do anything.  Am I using them wrong?  Most likely.  This stuff just kind of made my hair feel sticky and dirty.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer (0.11 oz ~$10): You might think that someone with my skin tone has no need for bronzer.  You would be wrong my friend.  I use it to highlight on the bridge of my nose and under my chin very sparingly.  I like the Tarte formula because it has a little sparkle and stays on all day long.

Aurora Gel Effects nail Polish (full size = $12): Who do I need to speak to about not sending me any more nail polishes?

Vasanti Brighten Up Cleanser (20 g = $10): I really liked this exfoliator.  It's nice and gentle and made my skin feel soft.  So, to sum up my review...it cleaned my face good.

Be a Bombshell Lip Balm (full size = $14): I really liked this lip balm...until I saw the price.  How dare you Be a Bombshell!  $14 for chapstick?!  You should be ashamed of yourself.

Not a bad haul at $53.25! (Although maybe more like $43, because there is no way in hell that lip balm is worth $14).

hello-weekend
Fabes Fashion looks so cute in her white jeans!  Topped off with a relaxed sweatshirt and (bottomed? off?) with some adorable leopard sneaks, this outfit is weekend relaxation perfection.
