2019 ~ Interstate Style

Ready or not, the seasons will be changing soon, and this plaid print top with polka dot details is giving me all the Fall feels. The back also has a nice button up detail that dresses it up more than your average tee or tunic. 

The fit is slightly oversized with a boxy shape. I'll run errands with it untucked and then dress for a more polished look by tucking the front in and adding more jewelry. This would look great with black midi skirt, too.
My sunnies are from a Chanel store in Las Vegas and are hard to find right now. The style number is 4222. Here are two pairs that are extremely similar in shape and color. 

I've had a bunch of questions on this necklace. It was a steal at under $20, and comes with this coin chain and two more (one chain link and one plain strand).

Thanks for stopping by!

Winston is officially two, and we can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. At two, he is a super smily, happy, and kind little boy, who is quickly becoming independent and worthy of an Oscar after some of the tantrums he's learning to throw. He makes us happier than we could've ever imagined, and while we want him to stay small so bad, we're looking forward to seeing him learning and grow so much this year. 

To celebrate the day, we put together a horse-themed birthday party. The kiddos had a blast jumping in and out pools and riding the pony. Check out the pictures below for fun and details of the decor. 

Thanks to all our family and friends for coming to celebrate, and making Winston feel so special on this day.

Outfit details:
Crystal: Top (bodysuit), HM Skirt (Sold Out) - Dress in same pattern, Sandals
Winston: Polo, Shorts, Swim Onesie or Here
Jared: T-shirt, Shorts

It's officially Summer and I'm sharing my favorite products to use during these hotter temps to protect, correct and get that glow. You'll find everything from suntan lotion and favorite foundations to tanner and lip care. I'm sharing it all. I do have slightly sensitive and dry skin for reference, but all of these products can be used on any skin type or have a version for specific skin types. 
Sandals // Lip Balm // Sunnies // Suntan Lotion // Bag // Swimsuit // Hat

Body - This MOROCCANOIL Sun Lotion is a must for your next vacation! I love how smooth and lightweight the formula is. It's really light enough that you could use this everyday, not just for the beach. The scent is Monoi, which is a light floral/gardenia fragrance. Also, it's formulated with antioxidant-rich organ oil and vitamin E, so you're getting skin is getting hydrated while using.

Lips - I love this SPF20 Lip Balm. It's super hydrating with shea butter and organ oil and isn't sticky or greasy and has a light mint scent. I carry this in my purse and use it daily. 

Face - I've been using this lotion before I put on my make-up or this setting spray with SPF after I put on my make-up.

Hair - This MOROCCANOIL Protecting Spray is one of my go-to products every time I wash my hair. I use a few sprays before while my hair is damp, and it detangles, softens, and protects my color from the sun and pollution.


Kiehl's - This Multi-Corrective Cream, is a must-have in my skincare routine. It's an anti-aging cream I use at night, but it does have SPF30 in it for daytime use, too. It helps with dullness, uneven texture, fine lines and wrinkles. 

Lips - I use this lip mask at night to hydrate and heal my dry and sometimes cracked lips. 


MOROCCANOIL Shower Milk - For your skin to get that glow, you have to make sure it's clean and exfoliated, so your moisturizer and oil can do it's job. This Shower Milk has the amazing MOROCCANOIL signature scent and while cleansing, also moisturizes with argan oil. I usually use with a loofah or exfoliating glove, so I can exfoliate at the same time. Mineral oil-free, so it's not going to take off your self-tanner or spray tan. 

MOROCCANOIL Body SoufflĂ©  Moisturizer - Hands down the best hydrating moisturizer and best smelling moisturizer I've tried. This soufflĂ© instantly smoothes your skin and has the light fragrance of MOROCCANOIL's signature scent. Also, a little bit goes a long way, too. This is a little bit pricier than I typically spend on body lotion, but I use this a lot and will vouch that it is work every penny, I promise. This one is also mineral oil-free. 

Loving Tan Ultra Dark - This is my all-time favorite tanner. It's a super dark, but natural looking tan that dries quickly and stays on for five days. This tanner is my go-to for my face. I've tried so many facial tanners, and this is the only one I've found that doesn't make me break out. I use my Luna 3 facial cleanser nightly to get rid of dirt and oil, which also helps my tanner apply better. I use the Luna 3 for Sensitive Skin, but they also have a versions for normal skin and combination skin. I also use the FOREO UFO to apply masks a couple times a week that help with pore size, dullness and wrinkles.

Setting Sprays to give you the perfect glow:
Caudele - Smells great and gives me an immediate dewy finish
NYX Dewy Make-Up Setting Spray - I've been using this on and off for about a year and love it. The best price you'll find for a dewy setting spray that lasts ALL day. 

Favorite Foundations to give you a dewy glow:
1. Gorgio Armani Luminous Silk (I used color 4.5)
2. L'Oreal Pro-Glo (I mix colors 201 and 203)
3. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (I use color Mont Blanc)

Body Oils 
MOROCCANOIL  - These will both give your skin an amazing glow. One is with shimmer, one without shimmer. This set is great if you want to try out a bunch of their body products. 

If you're thinking about trying any of these products and have questions, just shoot me a DM or comment below. A lot of these products can be found in travel size if you're looking to test something out before buying a full-size product.

We had a blast in the Bahamas. It is truly one of our favorite spots in the entire world, and this time we took Winston. It was extra work and extra rewarding. Getting to see him experience the ocean for the first time was so fun. I wanted to share all of my favorite swim cover ups, in case you have a trip coming up and need some ideas. There are so many styles out there. My favorites are the kimono style, cover up pants, tunics and beach throws that double as a cover up. Check out my picks below. 

This kimono cover up is even prettier in person than in the ad. It's has beautiful vibrant colors and is lightweight (perfect for humidity at the beach). I've also been wearing this with jeans and a tank or bodysuit, if it's hot out, but I still want to cover my shoulders. The color is called "coffee."

My swimsuit top and bottom are both by Montce Swim. I wear medium in both pieces. 
I bring these cover up pants on every tropical vacay, and they might be my most worn item on every trip. I should really grab the other colors. Right now black and coral are available. I'm 5'4" and the pants hit just an inch or so about the ground. There's a drawstring, so you can wear low or high-waisted. This pair is similar and available in white right now. The top I'm wearing was a great find. I actually bought this short-sleeved version for roaming around and then a long sleeved version to protect my shoulders and arms later in the vacation. It's super thin, very soft and washes well (yay!). My swimsuit can be purchased directly from Montce Swim, and occasionally Revolve will restock this "Spring Gingham" print. 

This soft tunic is so comfortable and easy to throw on or take with you in a beach bag. This particular style is Calvin Klein and sold out (so sorry), but I'm linking several similar options below. I also love a good beach throw to just tie around me. I love this one by Tavik. It comes in both a short and long version. The material is super soft and can be laid out like a towel or tied around you for a cute cover-up. The horizontal lines are very flattering.


I love hearing from you guys. Let me know if you try out any of these styles. Thanks for stopping by!
