Adventure Is Out There!

Adventure Is Out There!

This is a cute yet causal look that you can wear where-ever whenever. I had a really busy day today and was going to need an outfit that was comfortable yet presentable. Something that I could wear the whole day, from early morning to night! On top I'm wearing a striped mustard sweater from Gliks. This sweater is super cool because in the back it is cropped, it shows just enough skin. My shorts are plain white with a few holes, these are from American Eagle. Now on to accessories, I'm wearing a brown leather belt from American Eagle. I'm also wearing my DKNY gold watch on one of my hands, perfect for a busy girl on the go! My purse is Frankie and Johnson, which has the same brown color as my belt and boots. My ridding boots are Steve Madden. I absolutely love these! They are too cute and so comfy.

My makeup is what I normally wear. Excepted I focused more on bronzer and blush to make my face look more warm. I also wore a BB creme I bought from Target a few days ago. Would anyone enjoy s product review on that? I could always do a before and after! Anyways my hair is pulled back into a low bun. Nothing special just got it out of my face yet still looked cute!

Do you like ridding boots for fall? Do any of you have an opinion about cropped articles of clothing? for summer and for fall? 

Thanks for reading!

Lacey Ballerina

 Lacey Ballerina!

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I've been so busy! But I'm back to posting regularly and I'm determined to stay this way. Anyways on my short break I got a hair cut! If you haven't already noticed I got bangs! I took a risk and went for it and now I love them, they are work tho. 

Moving on to the outfit, Lacey Ballerina is a really feminine look with a few edgy details. I love mixing edgy and feminine, it always creates the perfect medium! My top is from Aerie, it is a black vintage lace crop top. My favorite part of this piece is the back. I love how low-cut it is, classy yet sexy. My bottoms is a long royal blue skirt from Forever 21. It is pleated and high-waisted! My accessories are a chain headband I won from BeFreaksApparel contest! You should check her out on instagram! My other accessories are rings from Forever 21 and an adorable skull bracelet from Gliks! Gliks is a store in my hometown, I think they have them everywhere but I'm not positive. They sell name brand stuff like Free People, Billabong, Glamour Kills. Last is my shoes which you probably have seen before in other looks. They are my gladiator sandals from the brand Volcom. 

My makeup is natural, I'm wearing a little bit of bronzer and blush but nothing too over the top. On my lips I'm wearing my new BabyLips (I'm unaware of the name at the moment). My hair is pulled up into a messy topknot. I have a few pieces in the front pulled out to make it look even messier. I also have the head band I talked about earlier in my hair.

Do you like my bangs? Do you like bangs in general? haha I'd love to hear what you guys think about my new look! 

Thanks for reading

Change of Seasons

Hello everyone! (: So yesterday it got down to 60 degrees, it was rainy and cold and yucky. However I was thrilled with the weather. I got to wear this beautiful mint green sweater. This sweater is from Urban Outfitters and I've been wanting this for a while now. It was a little expensive but I finally caved in and bought it. It was worth the money because I've already had a ton of outfit ideas for it. I hope you guys don't get sick of seeing it. :p Under the sweater I'm wearing a bandeau in a similar color. For bottoms I'm wearing my lace shorts I bought at TJ Maxxs. They were such a steal and so so cute. I was inspired by the gorgeous Chanel purses, to buy the one I'm wearing here. Chanel purses are so adorable yet extremely out of a normal girls price range. So I bought this quilted one from Aldo. I love that there is a bow on the front and the crossover chain is detachable. The funny thing is when I bought it I didn't realize it was made specifically for ipads. However I'm just gonna use it as a purse! My accessories aren't visible and I didn't get a picture of them. I was wearing a bunch of gold rings on my right hand from Forever 21. Lastly my shoes which you guys have seen before are Volcom gladiators. This outfit has accents of gold which I think went well with the black and mint green.

My makeup is on the natural side today. I'd go through it but it is basically what I wear everyday day. My hair is natural as well. I woke up and showered and that's what happened. 

What do you think of sweaters, all year round? and What is your take on the lace short trend? I'd love to hear what you guys think! If you guys have any questions, be sure to ask! Thanks (:

High-Bun Time

Hey everyone! :) I kinda wish blogs were as popular as Youtube! 

Anyways today's outfit is called "High-Bun Time", referencing to how my hair is styled for the day! I wore this outfit when to went down to Troy for back to school shopping. (Which I can't wait make a haul for you guys!) On top I'm wearing a, ballerina inspired, fitted lace top with ruffle sleeves from The Buckle. For bottoms, I'm wearing a black high-low skirt from Forever 21. This skirt was an amazing deal, so I bought another one in a pale pink color. My shoes are studded gladiators by Volcom, from Pac Sun. I got these shoes a few years ago, and lucky enough the stud trend is back. For accessories I have on my gold DKNY watch. (I want a rose gold Michael Kors one so bad!!!) On the other hand I have on a random gold bangle bracelet. My sunglasses are from Ralph Lauren. And yes my nail polish is still on. I still have white polish with one tribal nail! 

My hair is pretty self explanatory, a high-bun or other-wise known as a top-knot. If you would like to see how I do my messy bun, leave a comment below and I'd love to make a picture or video tutorial!

My makeup... which isn't really visible. I was trying to go for a bronze goddess look. Unfortunately I'm pale so that didn't work. On eyes I'm wearing a different array of colors from the Naked 2 Palette. I'm also wearing eyeliner and mascara which is not visible. What you can see is my Pinch Me blush by Mac and My Makeup Forever foundation.   

What do you think of high-low skirts? Would you wear them?

-Thanks <33 Lex

Cruiser... this look gets its name after the beautiful bike I just bought! I wanted a vintage looking cruiser that had racks on the front and back for a basket! (Which I still need to find.)

Anyways the outfit I put together is great for a more formal summer setting or just everyday. I personally dress up a lot more than the average person so I wore this just as an everyday outfit. My tube top is from Aerie which is a darker blue color and kinda gathers throughout. My skirt is from Urban Outfitters! (I highly suggest looking there for back to school shopping because they are having a huge sale on summer stuff. Which is easily transformable into the fall season.) My necklace is from Aerie, the necklace is pretty much all fringe, awesome for summer and fall! Then last my shoes are from Steve Madden. I've been obsessed with these shoes this season. Even though they aren't the most comfortable. I love the brown leather looking sandal for pretty much every summer outfit.

My makeup is very natural. I just bought a new foundation from Makeup Forever and it makes my face look EVEN all day! I'm wearing a coral blush from Mac... I think pinch me? (I don't remember.) My eyes I wearing a little eye shadow from the Naked 2 palette. I finally caved in and bought it! I'm not wearing any eyeliner just a little dark brown from the palette around my eyes. Mascara is from Clinique, a very natural looking one. My lips I have a bright coral lipstick from Target, pretty sure Loreal.

My hair is natural, it's basically straight with a little wave. It is parted a little off center which I think is gorgeous this summer and for going into fall!

Check out my lookbook and hype my look please! :) It should be located on the side on my blog!

What do you guys think of middle parts? What is your favorite summer hairstyle? :)
