Friday Faves # 3

What a week! My blog totally took a back seat this week as work and life were completely crazy. But Friday is here! So let’s talk favorites!

1. White Loafers… I picked these up last night and I cannot wait to wear them! I have so many outfits in my head that these will be perfect with! They come in silver and rose gold as well! And, they’re under $25!Screen Shot 2018-02-23 at 11.26.00 AM

2.  Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color – Ok, so this is HUGE for me! I have tried every long lasting lip product I could get my hands on but I’ve finally found one that will allow me to stop looking. Cue in Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color. I bought this the other day and it is absolutely AMAZING! It stays on ALL day, doesn’t bleed onto your cups (biggest pet peeve) and doesn’t feel like you are wearing anything. Make sure you also pick up the remover, as it’s not easy to get off! I picked up two colors so far, but I’ll be building my collection over the next week. This stuff is truly amazing, and it’s available in 20 colors!

3. These are SO cute, perfect for hiding your drink if need be, and the best way to add another accessory to your day!

4. I picked up this top last week, I cannot wait for spring. I mean come on, it has avocados and pineapples! It’s the perfect button down to bring you into spring and summer. Plus, it’s on sale! Get it, girl!

5. I love a good baseball tee, so when I found this velvet sleeve version I began to drool. I mean how cute it this? Screen Shot 2018-02-23 at 12.03.15 PM.png

 

Will you be picking up any of these this weekend? Hope your weekend is amazing!

The Uniform

IMG-5228

Shop my look:  Jacket  // T-shirt  – Express (sold out) similar // Jeans (old), similar // Shoes – Asos (old) , similar  // Bag // Sunglasses – on sale!  // Necklace

Fall and spring are my favorite seasons, but aside from me liking it because of the weather, they are my favorite seasons for dressing. My favorite outfit combo consists of a jacket (usually a moto jacket), fun tee, distressed jeans and cute flats. So after receiving snow two days ago, I was pleasantly surprised by this spring weather today! Cue in my favorite uniform!

Friday Faves # 2

It’s Friday! Wow, this makes two full weeks of the blog and it’s been so fun! What’s been your favorite part of the blog so far? Shopping posts, favorites, outfits? I’d love to hear from you! So here we go, my favorites of the week!

 

  1. These sandals.  They are on my list for spring. Let’s be honest, they’re similar to the Hermes Oran sandals, which obviously I won’t be purchasing! These are perfect for the price, and come in four colors! Screen Shot 2018-02-15 at 2.10.43 PM
  2. I’m an avid reader…to say I love to read is an understatement. My reading list is comprised primarily of fiction; thrillers to be exact but you can also catch me reading boss books and contemporary fiction. I loved B.A. Paris’s first book, Behind Closed Doors, so when I saw she came out with another one I couldn’t wait to read it. And it didn’t disappoint! If you love a quick read, check out The Breakdown.Screen Shot 2018-02-15 at 2.27.05 PM
  3. THIS.IS.THE.BEST.MASCARA! I’m always trying new mascaras because you just never know when you’re going to find one that is even better than the last! I’m also a fan of applying two kinds at a time. Cue in this amazing new L’Oreal mascara.Screen Shot 2018-02-15 at 2.35.13 PM
  4.  I’ve been absolutely loving this Dainty Triangle Choker necklace. It’s dainty enough to wear every day but still makes a statement. You can literally wear it with anything, or double it up with a longer necklace. Can’t decide between gold or silver? Good thing you can get them both 🙂Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 3.56.40 PM
  5. I’m always on the hunt for my next for my next favorite pair of sunnies. I think a pair of these is in my future. Even better? They’re on sale!Screen Shot 2018-02-15 at 2.43.05 PMSo do you have any of my Friday Faves? Have you added any to your shopping list? What else is a must have?

Have a great weekend loves!

Target’s New Clothing Line

I finally made my way to Target to check out their new line, Universal Thread. I hadn’t read too much about it online so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I’m impressed.  My first impression was that I was walking into a mini Madewell store within Target. I was walking through a sea of denim and basics. It seems like the perfect spot to stock up on tees and jeans. I tried on what I could with my 3.5 years in tow. Popcorn was the perfect form of bribery for this trip. It was a shame that the Target cafe was closed when we first walked in. I mean come on people, I have clothes to try on! Scroll down to see which items I’m loving.

I really liked the quality of this cardigan, and it comes in several colors. I think I could have actually sized down in this one.  Shop it here.

So I’m absolutely loving this striped top. It fit great, was super comfy and I’m a sucker for anything with stripes. And this one was approved by the popcorn eater as well, just in case you’re wondering!

If you’re anything like me, you like a good sweatshirt. I found this one to be a great fit with a vintage vibe. Best part? It comes in three colors.

These jeans were so soft and comfy and I was loving the paint splatter detailing. Plus I always love a pair of high-rise jeans! I can’t say they were as flattering as my usual AE jeans, but I thought they were a great alternative for the price. I wish I had more time to explore though, because they have SO many styles and cuts & inseams. It’s awesome to see a brand catering to all sizes.

These distressed jeans were mid rise and weren’t as flattering as the other pair, but jeans are so personal I encourage you to try them all on when you have a chance to see which work best for you.

So have you tried anything from the Universal Thread line yet? What are you most excited about?

Nike Air Max Motion

 

I snagged these about a week or two ago and have been wearing them non stop. They are super comfy, and I’m loving the little touch of blush.

7/8 Length Leggings

These are currently my FAVORITE leggings. And they even go great with my new sneaks. I love the length of these as usually full length are a little too long, so these are absolutely perfect. Compression? Check, High Rise Check? Cute? Check. Total win. And best part? They’re currently on sale under $17!

Short Sleeve Stripe Cotton Shirt

I bought this last week and I cannot wait for spring because I have so many outfit ideas in my head. Cue light jeans and nude shoes.

Shade of Winter Sweater

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 5.35.53 PM.png

Even though it’s a little late in the season for a new sweater, this one is on sale for $20 and it was too cool to pass up. I got it last week and have worn it like three times already.

 

So, that’s it for purchases this week. I’d love to hear what sort of things you would love to see come to the blog in upcoming posts!

What I’m Reaching For

IMG-5011

Shop my look: Moto Jacket (old), similar  // Sweatshirt // Jeans (old), similar // Shoes // Sunglasses (sold out), similar // Bag  (old), similar, same bag as mine in black//

Whenever I’m having one of those days where I just need to throw something on and get out of the house I find myself typically reaching for the same few things; a sweatshirt, a moto jacket, distressed jeans, and a pair of sneakers. It’s comfy, it’s casual, and it’s still cute so I’ve checked all my boxes. I find myself wearing several variations of this outfit on the weekends.

Do you have an outfit formula you’re always reaching for? I’d love to hear!

Friday Faves

Happy Friday! We made it. I’m so excited to share some of my current favorite things with you.

Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 2.23.31 PM

1. One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizing Styler // This is hands down the BEST $59.99 I’ve ever spent! I have really difficult hair, and I’ve never been able to master the art of the blowout. In the past, if I wanted straight hair I would have to blow dry my hair and then flat iron it. On the other hand, if I wanted to wear my hair wavy or with any sort of curl, I would blow dry it, flat iron it, and then curl it. I mean, how ridiculous! This dryer has allowed me to eliminate a whole step now that I can just blow my hair straight. It’s under $60, and I promise you won’t regret it! There is also a flat brush version here. But seriously, if you don’t already have one, do yourself a favor and buy it. It’s like giving yourself a professional blow out in just minutes!

2. Smile Brilliant Whitening Kit // This is such an easy way to professionally whiten your teeth professionally on your own time. It’s a totally personalized experience as Smile Brilliant will actually send you a kit to make molds and once you mail them back they send you trays that fit your teeth. (look out for more on this next week on m Insta stories!)  If you want to snag one for yourself, you can save 15% off your kit with code HAUTETOMBOY15.

3. Coco Lite Chocolate Lace // If you’re looking for a new low-calorie snack to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further. These are amazing! AND- even more amazing? They’re under 35 calories a piece! So if you’re like me and can’t stop at just one, it’s all good. Add some peanut butter and cool whip, and it’s like a full on dessert! You won’t regret it!

4. Personalized Screw Bracelet //If you know me, you know I love anything personalized. Cue in, my new favorite bracelet. It has a screw closure, and you can personalize it with pretty much anything! They come in silver, gold, and rose gold. Take your pick!

Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 1.39.12 PM

5. Camo Sneaker // I cannot stop buying sneakers for the life of me. Casual sneakers, gym sneakers, you name it, I want them all. So when I saw these in CAMO, you know I immediately purchased them. I have quite the Converse collection lately, they are the best! If you decide you need these too, I suggest sizing down a half a size.
