Sweater Weather

Fall is FINALLY HERE! I am so excited! First sweater outfit of the season and I’m keeping it casual.


This past Sunday I attended the 3rd Avenue Feastival in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It has become a tradition with my family that we get together. We always meet at my Aunt’s house to watch the afternoon football game before heading out to the Avenue. My youngest cousins really look forward to this and I love spending time with them so being casual was important since I tend to be running around with them for awhile. Once the little ones have their fun, my older cousins and I head to the local bars to have our own fun.With all of this in mind I wanted to be casual but nice enough where I didn’t look like a complete bum either.. after all it is Sunday and I prefer to relax and be comfortable..


 I am wearing…

This sweater immediately caught my eye when I was shopping in express. Who doesn’t like a jeweled toned sweater? What I also loved about this is it was crop topped, a majority of my jeans are high waisted (it’s just a preference). So what I loved is that made me look a little taller than I really am since I am a shrimp! #shortgirlproblems 

Of course I had to pair it with my new favorite high top chuck taylors, after all I was walking around all day and with my littlest cousins it was easier to run after them. 

To make it a little bit more dressy I added the Bauble Bar Catena Choker from Shay Mitchell’s guest bar tending line. You can check out my previous post on a review of my favorite items in her line, this of course being one of them. 


With my make up look I wanted to keep it neutral brown tones. This is a look I often wear because it’s simple colors and they make my eyes pop. I used a mix of urban decay naked 1 and Mac eye shadows paired with Kat Von D’s Lolita. This liquid lipstick LASTS!! I didn’t have to worry about reapplying once while I was out. 

Soon I will be posting more beauty looks with details, any and all suggestions are welcomed! Although I am not a professional make up artist nor do I think I am one I really love being creative and having fun with makeup. 


Hope you enjoyed reading this post!!

Shay Mitchell’s Bauble Bar Haul

I have heard a lot of good things about Bauble Bar, having searched the site before Shay Mitchell’s line I was very impressed with what I had seen and even made a wish list. Once her line dropped, well so did my wallet.

Let’s jump right into her amazing collection shall we?

First look here is the Catena Choker, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this choker. I can really wear it casually or even for a dressier event. You will most definitely be seeing me wear this often.

Up next, the Questa Earring Trio. There is a bit of a celestial/astrology vibe to her collection which I truly love. This trio set reminded me a bit of the Game of Thrones quote “Moon of my Life” and “My Sun and My Stars.” Now that I’ve completely geeked out there, lets discuss on how to wear these earrings. You can wear them as a set, or mix and match. Here I mixed and matched them to go with the Game of Thrones reference.

 

 

I also purchased the Solar Necklace Set. I really love the idea of layering chokers and necklaces. This gives me the freedom to do both. I can wear the choker alone or the layered necklaces individually. Essentially, I got multiple necklace options in 1 purchase.

 

Last item, is the Galileo Choker in Burgundy. I already have 2 other black chokers which is why I went with burgundy. Besides the fact it is a really beautiful color for the fall and the winter. I cannot wait to find the perfect outfit to wear this with!

 

Her collection doesn’t end there just yet ladies! Here are some of my other favorites…

  • VORTEX CRYSTAL CHOKER – I mean can we say the perfect crystal choker?! YAS HONEY! I will either be wearing this just to wear it or finding some place fancy to wear it.
  • ODYSSEY DROPS – New Years Eve. Enough said. These are perfection for your NYE outfit!
  • INTERGALACTIC RING QUARTET – Continuing with the celestial/astrology theme. I love a nice ring set, especially in gold. Again, these could be worn separately or together as a set.
  • SOJOURN BRACELET SET – If you have been looking for a nice bracelet set, here you have it. Personally I don’t like to wear a lot of bracelets. I tend to get tangled up in many things, but these I would definitely purchase. I could wear them as a set entirely or pick a few that I would like to wear. Who doesn’t like to have options when it comes to accessorizing??
  • SUPERNOVA CHOKER AND BIB SET – I can’t even put into words how beautiful this set is. It is just simply BEAUTIFUL. And again, these can be worn separately or as a set. Honestly it is so damn beautiful that I would wear it to bed.

 

I hope you enjoyed reading about my Bauble Haul!
