Summer Statement Accessories

I hope you had a nice week! My birthday is this weekend and my friends took me out for dinner and a trivia night on Thursday night which was so much fun. The weather in Raleigh has been absolutely delightful, and it was so much fun to sit and laugh with my friends last night!

Amy from Fashion Jackson just tested 6 “clean” mascaras and shared her favorite on this post!

Bought myself a birthday present.

I shared a couple matte foundations that are a great option for those hot and humid days of the summer!

Top 3 bra’s that feel lighter than air:

Soma Enbliss Bralette – extremely comfortable and offers medium-balanced support.

True and Co True Body Lift Triangle Bra – the lightest, thinnest of the bunch and offers light/medium support.

Tommy John Second Skin Triangle Bralette – a great mix of comfort/ease of wear with solid support at the band. I also love the convertible straps!

And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed: 

Target Button-Down Maxi dress

Black and White pleated dress

Yellow Maxi dress

Pink mid-calf length dress

Casual tye-dye dress

Thin running belt – I love this for running because it doesn’t bounce on my body when I move!

Powerbeats earbuds

Pureology Hydrate Conditioner

GrandeBrow Brow Enhancing Serum

Philosophy Exfoliating Facial Wash

Kindle – I wasn’t sure about reading on a device like this but I absolutely love it!

White tank with neon detail – a favorite for summer!

Madewell lemon earrings

Madewell thread wrapped hoop earrings

Kendra Scott open frame fabric earrings

Neon pink bathing suit – so fun and fits beautifully.

Madewell tank top

Walmart drawstring shorts – easy summer basic that makes me feel pulled together and not to lounge-y

Dolce Vita Sandals from Amazon

Questions from Monday’s Q&A box on Instagram:

How do you feel about It’s A 10 products? I like them a lot! The Miracle spray has been a favorite of mine for years.

What Key Lime Pie Recipe do you use? I’ve always used Pioneer Woman’s pie recipe and it never disappoints!

What is your favorite Apple Watch band? I love this skinny silicone one from Amazon!

What are your favorite Aera Scents? I love the White Tea scent and am LOVING the Laundress Collection scents.

Do you worry that “influencing” will fade in the future? I prefer to think of this job as a content creator, instead of just “influencer” but no I don’t think it’ll fade. I think it’ll change, but I don’t see it going away.

How often should you replace your hairbrush? Just as needed. If your brush is still working well and cleaned regularly, you should be good to use it!

We need new sheets. Which do you recommend? I love my Brooklinen sheets!
