Last week I posted this funny little quote on insta

I love buying things online because when they arrive, it’s like a present to me, from me’

and now I am so excited to share with y’all what I got!!

I online shop… a lot! I’d say definitely more than the average person 🙂 but it does take a lot for me to actually purchase something. Online shopping is really enjoyable for me for a multitude of reasons but here are my top 3:

  1. I can do it from the comfort of my own home
  2. I find more variations of products than I would normally if I were out shopping
  3. I can always find the best deals & make sure I’m not paying more for something if it’s sold cheaper elsewhere!

But the main reason I’m always online looking is because I love knowing what’s out there and I’m extremely passionate about sharing that with other people! I love when I’m scrolling through an insta or facebook page or any other social site and see someone wearing something and I know exactly where to find it or at least something very similar. Another reason is because I have friends and family that ask me all the time to find them something specific they’re looking for. I take that on as a challenge! I will find you exactly what you’re looking for & also something you might not be expecting to broaden your horizon and expand your wardrobe!

One of my favorite online shops to frequent is Lulu’s! I love their vast array of products, brands, and styles! If you could only shop here for the rest of your life, you could … they have everything! (okay, that might be a little extreme…but you get my point!) Lulu’s makes it extremely easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. You can shop by occasion {bridesmaid, wedding guest, party}, by trend {boho, two-piece, whites} or by type {backless, vacation, print and floral} … and they carry all kinds of price points!

I already know that this dress is going to be a favorite for me this season! I love anything with a Spanish-flare & open back and this dress has both! The back of the dress ties right above the cutout and has cute little tassels on the end of it! It is also fully lined and not see-through at all, even in the sunlight! I was actually really impressed with the quality. It’s a perfect vacation dress, too! You could use it as a swim cover up during the day then pair it with some heels to go out that night… very easy day-to-night transition! I wore a pair of mules (super trendy right now!) with it which I also got from Lulu’s but you could wear some lace up sandals or wedges. And don’t forget that it can get chilly at night at the beginning of the spring and summer so bring a light jacket or cardigan for back up! Lastly, I know I just used this clutch for a look 😉 but it’s definitely a favorite of mine! I love a pop of color, especially when my clothes are generally from a neutral palette and when you’re going with a more Spanish-influenced look, the more colors, the better!

I’ve also gotten questions about my lip color so this is what I used:

MAC Prep + Prime … lined and filled in a little w/ Laura Mercier Warm Poppy lip liner … Laura Mercier Portofino Red crème smooth lip colour

I’ve found that this combination works the best for me. My lip color stayed on all through dinner & until I took it off that night!

What are your favorite pieces for summer?!
