My Style: Aztec Empire Edition

Last Sunday I hosted my annual Summer Avon at home party. Of course I had to wear-and-share a look created with Avon products! I knew the party would be small so I decided to keep it casual and trendy.

Printed shorts are a huge trend this Summer. I've seen them everywhere from celebs to magazines to my fave shopping spots. These are the mark Aztec Empire Shorts from Avon, a must-have for Summer! I personally found that these shorts are running a little small in size. I usually get a small in mark but I needed a medium this time. The waist is a little higher than what I would normally wear but that's perfect for a higher cut or cropped top. TMI here: I have to be careful when buying shorts because I have trouble with them riding up in the crotch area when I walk. :( The Aztec Empire Shorts are a good length for me, short enough not to be bermuda length but not too short that they ride up.  

To top it off I wore this black shimmer, sheer back, high-low tank that I got at Wal-mart last Summer (here is something similar from Choosing a top was difficult. I had a bunch that would match. It came down to the fit of the top. This top is a little higher in the front and fit well with the higher waist shorts. I think the shorts would look great with a mint top as well which I might have to purchase. :)

My long feather necklace is a loner from my sister. This gorgeous star jewelry is Avon's Starfish 3 Piece Gift Set! For a limited time you can get the necklace, bracelet, and earrings for an amazing price!!! For makeup I used Avon's Extra Lasting Eyeliner in black for a little bit of a winged out effect and mark's Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in punch (here is a similar lip color from Avon)! 

I'm wearing my Faded Glory Women's Low Rope Wedge Sandal from Walmart and I clipped on mark's Step Right Up Shoe Clips (from mark's holiday '13 collection) to change up the look of my shoes.

Avon Naturals Vibrant Orchid & Blueberry Review

When I saw that Avon had a new Naturals scent I knew I must try it! I was a little iffy about the blueberry scent. I don't like to eat blueberries so ... After I smelled the shower gel for the first time, all of my apprehension was put to rest! The shower gel is amazing!!! The sweet floral aroma filled up my shower and left my skin infused with the delicious scent! Plus the hooked design of the bottle lets you hang it up in the shower. I give Vibrant Orchid & Blueberry two thumbs up! 

Layering your scent with two or all three of the same Naturals scent can help it last longer! 

The details:
-"An exotic floral glowing with sun-drenched orchid, bright blueberry, & a hint of zesty grapefruit!"
-Available in a Shower Gel, Body Lotion, & Body Spray!

During Campaign 14 (6/13/14 - 6/26/14) Avon Naturals are 4 for $10!!! This special offer includes Naturals Shower Gel, Body Lotion, & Body Spray in a variety of scents!

If you want to try Vibrant Orchid & Blueberry (and you do) shop to order!!!

My Style: Coral Kiss Edition

I LOVE my new Coral Kiss Dress from mark.girl (available this Summer @ my Avon store)! Accessorizing it was the trouble. I had a ton of ideas from belts to shoes to jewelry and couldn't decide how to style it for the first time! LOL I have a feeling I will be wearing it a lot more this Summer!

When in need of some style inspiration turn to Taylor Swift! Her street style and Keds ads have a sweet vintage, feminine look that I admire. Take a knee length dress add a thin belt and sneakers and voilà a little TS style! 

I love the sheer keyhole back of this dress. I didn't want to show off any bra straps so I wore a strapless bandeau. With the fit of the dress, the bra still stuck up out of the keyhole. :(

I wore the mark Rocking Pastels Necklace, vintage white thin belt and some gold and peach bracelets. And of course coral lips were a must! I mixed mark Make It Rich Lip Color in punch and Avon Candylicious Lip Gloss in candied peach.
