Friday Favorites: Weekender Bag and Beautycounter Eyeshadow

Hello hello my friends, happy Friday! We are extra happy today because we are headed to the lake for the weekend! It isn’t supposed to be very warm, but I am sure the boys will still be forcing us into the lake. One of the many joys of having your children, right?! 😉 Hopping right into my favorites for the week (including the BEST new Beautycounter eyeshadow), keep reading for all the details!

Beautycounter Eyeshadow

I have been sharing bits and pieces about Beautycounter recently, and I am absolutely in love with the new classics Beautcounter eyeshadow palette. Beautycounter recently launched a new line of powders with a brand new formula, and trust me when I say that they are GOOD. I am by no means a makeup pro, and do not claim to be. But this palette is on par, if not better than, the other designer palettes I have used in the past. There is also a romantic palette and a statement palette, and I honestly cannot decide which one I love most. Of course, my favorite thing about these powders is that they are SAFE and have over 1,500 ingredients that they DO NOT USE. I could shout it from the rooftops how excited I am to have found high performing makeup that is also 100% safe.

5 Ways To Simplify Your Life

Did you catch my post earlier this week with easy ways to simplify your life? I have been on a major kick of purging and getting rid of unnecessary things lately. I committed not only to cleaning out my closet, but to not refilling my closet! Womp womp. I love shopping, but just hate clutter and having too many things. I am thinking about looking into a ‘capsule wardrobe’ for fall/winter. Have you ever done a capsule wardrobe? I have no idea how to begin!

Crocband Crocs

Okay, I did not purchase these for MYSELF. I just don’t think I can ever find a way for Crocs to fit into my style 😉 But we grabbed Jackson this pair of shoes last week, and I am honestly surprised by how cute they are, and he LOVES them. Of course, Mike discovered that the exact same pair comes in grown up sizes, so now he has a pair, too. SALE ALERT: the grown-up pair actually cost HALF as much as the kids sizes on Amazon and a fraction of what I have seen them for in stores! I will say that I love that they are easy to clean and are perfect for use during the summer months!

Tie Front Top

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite trends of summer. These tie front tops are my absolute favorite and are universally flattering on everyone. They are basically a top that was MADE to be worn with a cute bralette! You can check out the full post with all of the details here.

Lily Jade Weekender Bag

Look for a full review coming next week, but since we are all packed for the lake I couldn’t resist sharing my FAVORITE new bag. As I talk about capsule wardrobes, Lily Jade bags really fit the bill. They are of the absolute BEST quality and materials, and I have no doubts I will use them for YEARS to come. And the style is so classic, I don’t worry about it not being ‘trendy’ in a few years! Did I mention the weekender bag is HUGE and holds everything you could need, and more!?

 

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend-there aren’t many weekends left of summer, so make sure you make every last moment count!

Tie Front Top and Tall Grass

Slowly but surely, we have been getting our yard up to speed. Trust me when I say that moving into a yard that hasn’t been landscaped is stressful. When that yard happens to be nearly 5 acres, your head starts to spin! But we are approaching a point where we finally feel like we have a decent YARD, so that next year we can really get to some landscaping. In the meantime, I love sneaking out for photos by our tall wild grass. It is not easy on the feet, but it sure is pretty! And now enough about grass and yard work, onto this tie front top!

I am such a sucker for tie tie front top trend that is going around. They are seriously SO flattering, and comfortable. Since there is a tie that also allows it to be loose in other areas, a tie front top makes you look fabulous while hiding any imperfections (or post taco belly bulges). And these high waisted jeans are the icing on the cake; they cover your belly and hold everything in while also being SO comfortable. This option is another favorite of mine; 

Top (similar, similar) // Bralette // Jeans // Bag (old, similar here) // Watch // Sunglasses

What is your favorite summer trend this year? I love seeing styles come back in that were around when we were kids! Of course, some of them (I am talking about YOU platform shoes) can stay in the 90s where we left them 😉
