Huda Beauty Liquid Matte

When I heard the hype of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks I knew I had to try them. For someone who has dry lips, matte lipsticks don't always work for me, but I absolutely love the matte lips look.

Modest Lily- Sweet Romance Top

This Sweet Romance Top from Modest Lily is the perfect top for spring (and for this unusually warm winter). Since its such a light color and the material isn't too thick I think it will be great to wear in the summer as well. In my opinion the length of this top is just right.

Ahfif- Sleveless Vest and Gingham


Lately I have been loving sleeveless trench coats and sleeveless vests (this ones from Ahfif). It's probably because its still not very cold here, and with the sleeveless vests I can wear just about any long sleeve shirt underneath and still be warm.

Shabby Apple

 This is probably going to be one of my last "warmer weather" posts for awhile, since it finally got cold here- yay! I live in Central Texas, and weather is crazy here, so we will see if it actually stays cold (I'm hoping that it does though). On another note, I have realized whats been missing from my wardrobe lately- COLOR!

This dress is from Shabby Apple, which is an online store that sells the cutest vintage inspired clothing. This dress is called the Micha Dress-  and its currently on sale!
