Summer Lovin' [Happened So Fast]

With summer coming to end, I thought I would style a little number in the spirit of the season. I would wear this outfit with a cropped, white cardigan for a romantic lunch date with Jason. We could dine al fresco and people-watch as we sipped mimosas. Afterwards, we'd go for a leisurely stroll and do some shopping. A girl can dream...

Side Swept Rose Dress - Forever 21.com - $22.80
Brass French Charms Necklace - MaxandChloe.com - $113
Bead & Floral Ball Bracelets - MissSelfridge.com - £4
Heart Wedge Sandals - Forever21.com - $29.80

Splurge or Spree?

This a new feature I'm adding to my blog called "Splurge or Spree?" The idea is taken from my favorite magazine People Style Watch. Every issue, they show you one luxury beauty item you could indulge in versus a collection of reasonably priced goodies for the same price. Sort of like a "This...Or All This" seen in other magazines.

Up first, Guerlain's Terracotta Mineral Flawless Bronzing Powder from Sephora. Price: $65.

Now, for less than the price of that one bronzer, you could get a foundation, concealer, bronzer/highlighter, eyeshadow trio, eyeliner, mascara, blush, plumping lip gloss & a pair of lashes!

Personally, I love shopping for bargains and typically buy drugstore makeup. That being said, sometimes it pays to choose quality over quantity. It all depends on what works for you and what you're willing to "splurge" on!

What do you splurge on??

Trend Forecast

I've been noticing a few trends for fall lately and I've also done a little research on what will officially be in style for the upcoming season. Here's the scoop:

1. Biker Chic (Add some edge to your wardrobe with black leather, metallics and chain detailing.)

2. Suede Pumps & Booties (I'm still not a fan of booties on everyone, but they're definitely not going anywhere soon.)

3. Prep School Style (Think plaid, blazers & uniform separates.)

4. Matte Nail Polish (I suggest investing in an inexpensive bottle of Essie's Matte About You and transforming the polishes you already have.)

All pieces from Forever 21

All shoes from Steve Madden

All clothing from Aeropostale

Nail Polishes by Zoya & OPI

What I'm Wearing: Garden Party

My BFF Kimberly is throwing a Garden Party tonite! There will be teacups, flowers and gnomes a-plenty! I'll be wearing my new floral dress from Faith 21 (Forever21's Plus Size line), black leggings, a skinny belt from I ♥ Ronson (Charlotte Ronson's line for JC Penney) and a big black and gold bow necklace from Urban Outfitters UK. On my nails, Ali from Zoya. I haven't decided which shoes would look best. Either flats, wedges or peep-toe heels... Any suggestions?

*I ended up going with flats. Juicy Couture "Rose" Ballet Slippers in black/gold.

Just a little heads up...

When I reach 50 blog followers I will be having a GIVEAWAY! I picked up an extra MAC brush set at the CCO last week and I want to give it to one of my fabulous readers! I'm not sure when I'll be up to 50, so stay tuned for details.

DIY: Pro Nails

I love the look of Pro Nails! Katy Perry usually has some crazy amazing fingernail art, so she was my inspiration for this look. I picked up some press on nail stickers from Hot Topic for $5 and am taking them for a test run. They aren't super sticky and there's really no way to "cement" them on (i.e. top coat or sealing them with heat like Minx decals) but they've stayed on pretty well since I applied them 12 hours ago.

What do you think?

*Here's what they look like in the package:

What I'm Wearing: Bowling Party

So... last week's poll results ended in a tie. The majority of votes were either for a bowling or karaoke party. While my original plan was karaoke, I ultimately decided on bowling because it's much less embarrassing and requires much less alcohol consumption to get people involved in. Thanks to all who voted!

When I called to reserve a couple lanes the other day the receptionist said it will be "Cosmic Bowling" that night. Apparently there will be black lights, loud music and crazy amounts of people. They have a full bar so it should be fun. I want to keep it casual since it's just bowling, so I'm planning on wearing a red flannel tunic over black leggings and spicing it up with red lips and false lashes!

The soundtrack for the night will include:
"I Got A Feelin" by Black Eyed Peas
"Good Girls Go Bad" by Cobra Starship
"Starstrukk" by 3OH!3
"Happy Birthday" by The Ting Tings

I can't wait!
