La Vida es Bella + Favorite Graphic Tees

When you think about a casual spring weekend outfit, what comes to mind? For me its either the white denim + cute graphic tee + comfy flats combo or workout clothes; so basic right?! What I love about graphic tees is, they’re a quick and simple way to get a fun message across. There are countless times when I see a graphic tee and just think…wow, it doesn’t get more relatable than that. Take this one, for example, it means Life is Beautiful and when I tell someone that, it just brings a smile to their face. Finding clothing that evokes positive emotion is always a win in my book.

Beige Clothing Pieces for the Spring

We all know that blush is a hot color in the spring and all year round. But recently, I find myself in love with beige clothing pieces more and more. The neutral color is warm, inviting, and super flattering. It slims, elongates and just looks great on everyone. Since beige is the neutral of neutrals it also pairs well with almost everything. New favorite color?! I think so!

Pink Striped Top for the Spring

Pink stripes, off the shoulder, flutter sleeves and a tie detail. Yeah, lets combine all of this spring’s trends into one gorgeous top! Not that I’m complaining, this pink striped top is one of my favorites of the season. I am kinda sad that it’s sold out, but I found a ton of similar ones linked below!! When in comes to these interesting blouses with lots of detail, I tend to go extra simple with the pairings. Like here, a light colored striped top pairs classically with white pants and accessories. I wasn’t going to mess with the ease of that pairing! But versatility is also a necessity and I think this top will look amazing with denim too!

Minimalistic Skincare from Shortlist Beauty

This year, one of my goals is to streamline and perfect my skincare routine. I honestly didn’t realize how challenging this would be until I started researching all the different skincare options. Which led me to think, there has to be a beauty line that will help my skin in the most simplistic way. A skincare line that doesn’t include 8 products and dozens of added ingredients. Well, Shortlist Beauty is exactly that.

Ok y’all. Let’s be real, who has time for 4 serums and 5 creams in their daily skincare routin!? This girl does NOT. When I heard about Shortlist Beauty’s minimalistic take on beauty, I was completely sold on the idea.

The serum and cream combine perfectly to deliver the necessary skincare ingredients without irritation. The Shortlist Duo results in clear skin, reduced lines, less wrinkles, an even complexion and all in all, stronger, healthier skin. Did I mention that the products also fall under the clean beauty category. Yet another win in my book!

A More Productive Day with Samsung Galaxy S9+

If you follow along on my Instagram, I’m sure you’ve noticed some huge changes coming up in my life. James is graduating Dental School, we are moving to Birmingham, Alabama and planning a trip to China. Along with that, I’m still trying to push out daily blog and social posts to keep y’all engaged.

So, how do I do it?
It takes a village to get everything done. Just kidding, it really just takes a powerful phone, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and some dedication. I personally hate gimmicky and hard to use devices, and am so pleased with the usability and features of the Samsung Galaxy S9+. It helps streamline my day-to-day tasks and boosts my productivity to the max. I didn’t realize how frequently I would use the functions that the Samsung Galaxy S9+ has until I got the phone and dived into it. I’m also going to share how I shoot and edit my images with the Samsung Galaxy S9+ camera.

Trusty Turtleneck Sweater Outfit

All winter long, and for the first half of spring, you can find me in a trusty turtleneck. Easily this winter’s most versatile staple, the turtleneck sweater helps me stay warm and cozy on many occasions. I love how this one isn’t too oversized and frumpy, and layers well. It can be dressed up or down and looks great with just about anything. Since the northeast is covered in snow and the south feels like winter again, it’s unlikely that I’ll be packing up my sweaters anytime soon. Although, I would prefer a cute gingham dress instead.

This spring’s trendiest accessory is the neckerchief and my oh my do I love it. Whenever I wear my neckerchief, I instantly feel this cool girl vibe. I’m not entirely sure what that means, but I just adore how it looks with this yellow off the shoulder top. It also is such an effortless accessory. All it takes is a knot, and you’re good to go. Next time, when you’re reaching for a necklace, switch it out for a neck scarf to change things up!
