This is probably what is my first typical beauty/style blogger post. You might be like “but Allie you’ve already published numerous posts!” Well this one is different as it is heavily photos of JUST me. AHHH! Ok! For those of you who don’t know, I am not the biggest fan of taking photos when it is just me alone. I definitely put myself out of my comfort zone, as I have never felt comfortable in front of the camera when it is just myself. Man you can tell from even my elementary school pictures, that I did not like all the attention on me. I still don’t, but they don’t say practice makes perfect if it wasn’t true. So with this post begins my journey of feeling more comfortable in front of the camera solo! Photo terrors aside, this is also a typical style/beauty blogger post as I wanted to share some of my favorite/staple items of this summer. I’ve seriously loved all of these items to say the least. A better way of describing what I am about to show you would be my go-to items/clothing.
Topshop Scalloped Edge T-Shirt: I got this from Nordstrom. I just love how the scalloped edge bottom of the shirt makes just a plain white T-shirt a tad more special and gives it some umph!
Steve Madden White Sandals: These are probably my favorite purchase of the summer. Well actually that’s not accurate, its my second favorite but a very close second, my first favorite is mentioned later. I’ve been wearing these sandals everywhere. I love the gold detailing at the top by the toes. I think I love these sandals so much cause they actually remind me of these sandals I had when I was a toddler.
Kate Spade Bar Necklace: I love how delicate and simple this necklace is. It can go with just about everything and that’s why I have loved wearing it this summer.
Coral Top from J.Crew: Lately I’ve been a huge fan of coral. Actually I’ve always loved the color coral, but I kinda forget how fond I am of it during fall and winter. I love this top, because not only is it flattering but also it can be dressed up or down, Making a perfect summer staple.
Nude flats from Nordstrom: I’ve been looking for a pair of nude flats for a longggggg time. Long time! I was so happy that I finally found these because they are simple, making them very versatile. The thing I probably love the most is the fact that these cute flats actually have some support and are super comfortable!
White Skirt from J.Crew: I’ve loved eyelit-patterned clothing ever since 8th grade. I’m glad that it is making a come back. I feel like it’s the perfect summer time pattern/style for clothing. I love this skirt cause it’s easy to pair with any color and just makes a very classy addition to my closet.
Kate Spade Black Purse: This purse is by far my favorite purchase of the summer. I have wanted a Kate Spade purse for two years now and finally bought my first one with my first full time paycheck. It was my first big girl purchase and I’m so happy with the purse I chose. It’s a great size and pretty much can be used for any occasion. The crossbody strap is removable making it versatile.
Notebook: Honestly this is just a normal notebook but the ombre blue pattern and saying on the front just won me over the minute I laid my eyes on it. It has come in handy as I love writing lists down and generally anything down.
Some honorable mentions I wanted to list would be the kiehl’s bb cream. It makes an excellent lighter alternative to foundation during the summer and has SPF 50 in it so that’s an extra plus! The nail polish that has been basically cemented on my nails ever since I purchased it is the Chanel Sweet Lilac. It’s the most unique lilac color I’ve ever seen and just absolutely stunning. The two lipsticks that have been my go to are Bite Beauty’s Fig and Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Insoumise. I love wearing Fig during the daytime as it’s a nice pink that is subtle but noticeable. The Chanel Insoumise I wear more for occasions, it’s the perfect coral red and it was just love at first sight. I love how Chanel lipsticks smell like roses, it’s a nice classy touch
