Monthly 5 | May

I don't know how this month turned into all beauty related items, but I just couldn't wait to share these items with you. I was on a bit of a beauty product trying hiatus because I hadn't found anything new and exciting worth the purchase, but these five items are pretty dang great!

Swing Dress + Booties

This outfit is so freakin' versatile, it's not even funny. Summer concerts are so popular in the south, and it usually involves an outdoor venue with lawn seating, which mostly equates to a lot of sandy dirt. Sandals aren't so great for those situations because you end up with jiffy store feet as my mom calls it—as in you'll literally have a black ring around your feet at the end of the night from all the dirt getting in your sandals. Booties are perfect for outdoor concerts because they keep your feet clean, and you can brush the sand off your boots at the end of the night.

Summer "Almost" all Drugstore Makeup Routine

Summer makeup is very no fuss for me. I try to keep it simple and natural looking. I typically have a bit of a tan and like for that to shine through without a thick layer of foundation or other products on my face. I do everything with a lighter hand, and I lean more toward glowy, fresh looking skin. I stuck mainly to drugstore products for this post, but these are items I already have an use on a regular basis. So, I did not go out and randomly pick up drugstore products to compile this post. As you'll see, I don't have drugstore products for each step of this look, and that's because I cannot find quality drugstore products for three of the products I use.

Oversized Plaid Shirt + Shorts

I really struggle in the warmer months to put together looks that involve actual pants. It gets way too hot for that around here. On the weekends, I'm always trying to find ways to dress up my denim for a night out. Sometimes heels with shorts feels a bit too much, but if I'm covered up top and just my legs are exposed, I feel much more comfortable slipping on a heel without feeling trashy. I live by this rule: cleavage or legs—never both

Nail Polish Organization + Favorite Products

I'm semi-embarrassed to show you just how large my nail polish collection has become. It's definitely not something I strived to grow, but a beauty subscription box that focuses on polish will do that to you, I suppose. I'm a huge fan of Julep polishes, and they've replaced almost all of my other polishes as time has gone on. Mainly because I pay $19.99 a month and get two full sized polishes and a full sized beauty product, which I love.
