I could not be more in love with summer and wearing summer dresses. I do not believe a girl could ever own too many dresses in their wardrobe…EVER. If you love this button up dress then you’ll love the fact that it comes in two other swoon-worthy colors. I may have to buy it in all three!

Little Summer Black Dress // Under $35

Look no further. I have found the perfect little black dress for the hot summer months. One that’s perfect for special occasions while also still being comfortable enough to go to the grocery store in. This lace A-Line dress under $35 is the best of both worlds. I never thought I would love a more basic yet elegant black dress before. It’s quality reminds me of something that J.Crew, Tory Burch or Kate Spade would design but a fourth of the cost! I felt like I really scored with this one, not to mention how beautiful I feel in it. In the end, that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?

Minimal + Comfy Spring Look

Hello sweet friends! I’m featuring this minimal outfit TWICE on my blog because its just that good and I didn’t mention these pieces enough in the previous post. I also figured I would accessorize slightly to bring the look together. I really cannot get enough of these jeans, flared to perfection at the bottom, paired with this off the shoulder knitted top. L O V E! I’ve really been loving minimal attire paired with nude colored accessories. I’ve just really been needing to feel simple yet beautiful and this outfit did exactly that. I also felt good and surprisingly confident about showing off my mom curves for the first time since delivering. I can thank these jeans for that. I really needed an extra boost of “DAMN GIRL.”

I mean, don’t we all?

Love you guys!

My #1 Drugstore Foundation

I’ve tried nearly every drugstore foundation there is. From Maybelline to Loreal to every brand in between. Most drugstore foundations are really stepping up their game, coming in very close in comparison to certain high end brands recently. After too much trial and error, I really think certain high end foundations aren’t worth the $$$ nowadays. I’ve tried my fair share. (I still like Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer though.) I wanted to try out a drugstore foundation after getting sick of being let down by costly high end foundations. I went to the drugstore, completely blind in what to choose. I had heard some of my favorite YouTubers mention this Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation and figured I can’t lose too much BECAUSE IT’S ONLY $5!  I got home, tried it and

F E L L  I N   L O V E! 

I’m no beauty expert but I know what I like on my face. I need a long lasting, light coverage for a day to day basis foundation but need it to also be buildable to full coverage for photo shoots and special occasions. I have oily skin so I do need a matte to semi-matte finish. This foundation checked all my boxes and made my skin look flawless with zero to none cakey-ness. I’m so impressed guys. Wet N’ Wild really killed it with this one. I really think, no matter your skin type or coverage preference you should at least TRY this foundation. I mean it’s ONLY five dollars. I’m so happy I did.

The biggest tip and trick I’ve learned from the Beauty Guru’s of Youtube is “baking” my foundation. I think it’s the only reason my makeup lasts so long throughout the day. It’s a step I will NEVER take out of my makeup routine…even when I’m 80 years old.

What’s YOUR favorite drugstore foundation?

With love,

Karissa Marie
