This dress is one that is comfortable from sun up to sun down and through football carpool, school registration/orientation and work.  Great length and it will easily transition to fall and winter.

Happy Friday to you all!

The Girl in the Yellow Skirt


We are at that funny phase in seasons... where it feels like fall because of back to school but we are still getting some crazy hot days so you can't break out the new school clothes quite yet.  So we will continue to dress for summer while it lasts.  Happy Hump Day!





Happy Monday Friends!  I stepped away for a little while as last week was incredibly busy with more back to school events and Luke and Beckham's birthday.  I'm afraid this week won't slow down too much and we are staying on top of it.

This blouse is going to be on heavy rotation this fall and it is incredibly comfortable.  It will be great for layering under sweaters and cardigans as well but since we still have some heat, wearing solo is the perfect option.

I hope your weekend was a great one, and thank you for stopping by!

August Beauty Faves


1.  kiehls flavored lip balm #1 in mango - one of my favorite lip protectants, this mango flavored balm is heaven in a tube.  I like to use a lip scrub then apply this at night to truly let it absorb.

2.  lorac pro palette - this palette is hands down, my favorite palette.  Even more so than my naked palettes - this is my go to in the morning for the variety of matte and shimmer shadows.

3.  kat von d shade + light contour palette - this contour palette is amazing and does the trick, but truthfully, I find myself reaching more for my Anastasia original contour kit (now called light to medium), and it is a few dollars less expensive as well.

4.  glamglow mud mask - when I actually have time to soak in a bath, I like to apply this mask as it needs to be applied for at least ten minutes.  It helps to exfoliate and tightens skin; both wins for me.  The mask is definitely a tingly mask, so men and women with sensitive skin may need to try a test area first.

5.  makeup forever skin equalizer - since I have an extremely oily t-zone, I order the mattifying primer for oily skin.  This is my first step post moisturizer to apply only to my t-zone.  Very lightweight and creamy and helps with a balanced face.

Rainbow Sorbet


missguided laser cut heels // forever 21 neon bracelet {old} // kate spade necklace {old}

This outfit reminded me of my younger days and trips to Baskin Robbins - and my go to ice cream flavor was a scoop of rainbow sorbet.  Still a favorite to this day.

Sadly, our summer is winding down and we have been busy with back to school activities and I'm squeezing in the last of my summer outfits.  I hope your Tuesday is off to a great start!
