My Style: Denim Skirt Edition

I'm excited to see the resurgence of the denim skirt this Fall! Way back in the early 2000s I had like 3 or 4 in various shades of denim. I wish I had throwback pic to share with you but sadly I do not. Anyway I lucked out and found the perfect skirt at the Good Will!  


The first two looks I styled with a button down. I saw a few pics of pencil skirts on Pinterest styled with a button down and sweater/blazer. The first look is geared more toward Fall with boots and a sweater cardigan while the second look is a little more end of Summer with flats, sleeveless button down, and a lace blazer. The third look is my fave - casual sweatshirt with sneakers! I can definitely see myself wearing this as an alternative to shorts or jeans this Fall. 











I found these similar skirts online to make shopping for one easy for you!!!

Avon Naturals Fall Classics Comforting Fig & Fresh Orchard Apple Review

Fall is the time to change up not only your style and makeup but also the scents you use. Instead of using something fresh and tropical scented you might want to try warm and soothing. Avon just released a new Naturals scent, Comforting Fig and released Fresh Orchard Apple. 


Fresh Apple Orchard - The scent of green apple with sparkling pear & creamy muguet. It comes in a Shower Gel, Bubble Bath, and Body Lotion. Check out my review from last Fall here!



Comforting Fig - Cozy up to the autumn comforts of sweet figs, juicy plums & warm amber. It comes in a Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Body Spray, and Bubble Bath.

My review: The Naturals that I have purchased in the past have had a food/fruity or floral scent but this one is more like a fragrance. It reminds me of a musk mixed with a baby powder smell. It is quite heavily scented and now two hours after my shower I can still smell the scent on my skin. Overall Comforting Fig is not my favorite Naturals scent. The heavy perfume smell is just not my cup of tea. I prefer something lighter and fresher. Just because I don't love it doesn't mean you won't! :)



In Campaign 19 and 20, 2015 Avon Naturals shower gels including these scents are on sale for $1.69!!!

Avon Beyond Color Lipstick Review

A few months ago I won a tube of new Avon Beyond Color Lipstick at my district's third quarter meeting. A free lipstick? Uh..yeah!!!! I love lip colors! A #FOTD isn't complete without lip color. I received shade shocking pink which is a reddish pink color. 


My review: Overall I would say that this was a typical lipstick. It glided on with a nice amount of color and it lasted until I ate and wiped it off. FYI: I usually wear Baby Lips lip balm under any lipstick so my lips don't get dry. I can't wait to try the lip conditioner sample that came in my rep sample pack the next time I wear this color. 




DETAILS: Enhanced formula now with jojoba oil, caffeine and pomegranate extract. SPF 15. Satin finish. .106 oz. net wt.

My Style: Pleat The Heat Edition

It's mid August and even though Fall fashion is basically in every store, it is sweltering hot here in my midwestern town. We still need cute end of Summer styles!!! 


I snagged these cute pleated shorts at my local consignment store. I stuffed a grocery bag with clothes for $3 that day!!! Anyway they were a great find because they can be dressed up or down and will be easy to transition into a Fall look. Of course I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. 

Photos: Top LeftTop RightBottom LeftBottom Right

The pics I found had a few things in common - tucked in shirt, cuffed hem, and a cute belt. Today I paired my pleated shorts with a simple black tee, black flat sandals, and teal accessories.
