Summer Hair | Loose Fish Tail

July 05, 2015



Happy Monday! Today I'm sharing a bunch of goodies, the first being these amazing sandals! Now, I have some 'Millers' in nude and they're my absolute favorite... but these Tory Burch knock-offs cost me $12 last weekend, and I even got a second pair (!) for an additional $6. THEY'RE BUY ONE GET ONE HALF OFF! That's two Tory Burch look-alikes for $18. Ridiculous... and they come in SEVEN colors, so if you're interested in checking them out, I'm pretty sure most sizes are sold out online however, I went to my local Payless and found all the colors there! You should definitely check it out if you're on a budget this summer like I am haha.

Next, I want to share with you the magic of Hidden Crown hair extensions. If you're like me and love to have braids and hairstyles for long hair, but just don't have the length for it, try these out! I put these 20 inch extensions in (literally took me 30 seconds to put them on) and did this super fun fish tail braid! The thing I love most about this brand is that you don't have to spend like 15 minutes putting them in and you don't have to sew them in, they just fit on your head like a Halo with a clear wire! If you wanna learn more be sure to visit their website. I've got lots more to share about these things, and might even film a tutorial video if I get the chance pretty soon, but until then, check out all of my hair styles on Snapchat: LivinginColorL.

Lastly, I wanted to share how amazing my Covered Goods carseat canopy/nursing scarf has been. Not only is the grey and white stripe perfect with almost every outfit I wear [that's important, right?!] but I've been using it a lot lately and I love how the fabric is light and breathable for both nursing and for the hot days when I'm walking my babe to and from the car! (It's been over 100 degrees like consistently the past few weeks.) Nursing in public was very scary for me at first, but with the help of my Covered Goods canopy, I still feel super modest and comfortable now!

Hi loves! My outfit today is super simple, but it's very comfortable! Let's talk about these shoes for a second... I am adoring this slides trend this summer because they're just soooo comfortable! I've linked to lots of different options above, but the ones pictured have to be my favorite. I also paired them with some distressed boyfriend shorts and a white tee the other day for a casual, summer look! The possibilities are endless with slides :)

My necklace is a hand-stamped personalized piece from Jenny Present! The chain detail on it is super unique, and I love their tagline: "More than just an accessory; jewelry that tells a story" :) As a new mama, I absolutely adore wearing my sweet babe's name on my necklace! It reminds me of the day of her birth, which was one of the happiest days of my life! Here's a closer picture below... The cool thing about this line is that celebs love it too! Giuliana Rancic (i'm a huge fan!) wore this necklace with her sweet new babe's name on it. If you're a mama or know someone who's going to be soon, check out the Proud Mama collection at Jenny Present! Lots of great gifts there! See the graphic below - they are having a Fourth of July sale and they're also offering Living in Color readers 20% off with the code BIGFAN. Not interested in buying today? That's okay cause I've got a fabulous giveaway for you!
Since you guys are my favorites, I asked to team up with Jenny Present to give away one of these necklaces you see above! If you don't have a baby don't worry! You can get your name hand-stamped on it or the name of your significant other! I love my puppy so much, I'd probably get his name on there if I didn't have a baby now lol. See giveaway details below! Giveaway runs until July 10th! Open to U.S. only!

Before Sunset

Wearing: Nordstrom top | Target denim (love these-on sale for $22!) | Tory Burch sandals (super on sale!) | Tory Burch bag | Michael Kors watchInPink 'Spotlight Rhinestone' bracelet c/o | Rocksbox 'shine' necklace c/o TAudrey'Autograph Name Plate Necklace' c/o



Hi loves! Happy Monday. I'm sharing a weekend outfit with you that was shot right before sunset! I love how the sky behind me is orangish-pink and you can make out the silhouette of the trees. We've been going on lots of evening walks lately and it makes for great appreciation of nature and all it's glory.

I want to take a second to rave about Target's denim leggings! These look like jeans, but feel like comfortable, moveable leggings. I'll admit this is my first time wearing jeans after baby and now I don't want to take them off, ever! They are super stretchy and form to your body type... (I have bigger thighs and have such a hard time finding denim that looks right) so I'm super happy with the $27  I spent on these pants (they're $22 now!), and now need them in a darker wash, and of course white for summer! I would recommend sizing up though since these are a legging! Let me know if you check them out. xo.


Ode to Red, White, and Blue

June 26, 2015

Hi loves! I wanted to share some of my favorite past red, white, and blue looks! I am guilty of styling this patriotic combo in the winter months too, but a majority of these are summer outfits that can easily be recreated next weekend! What plans do you guys have for the 4th? J and I are going to take our new sweet babe to see fire works and will probably end up grilling something delicious at home. Luckily he gets the third off too so we'll have a nice long weekend :)

Shop some of my favorite and (super affordable) red, white, and blue styles below:




Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 95: Pop of Color

June 24, 2015
 Wearing: Old Navy dress | Lilly Pulitzer for Target wedges (similar) | Coach bag (love this one!) | Target belt (similar) | InPink deco burst bracelet c/o | similar sunglasses 




Hi loves! Today our trend is pops of color, so I took a simple black and white dress and added a super bright flower and bag! What color better than pink, right? Since I love pink and gold together, I went with some gold accessories as well! The belt and the shoes make the outfit look more complete! 

One thing I struggle with about dresses like this is that they aren't fitted so it just kind of hangs on me, which is why I cinch it at the waist with a belt, and it makes it look much better! Something I love about this dress is that it buttons up, so it's easy for nursing. I've been wearing button up dresses/tops, or jus tank tops with some black cargo pants... some of my favorites are here. Black pants are just easy as a mom these days... haha I don't dare brave white. Not yet ;)

Mrs. Casual

June 21, 2015




Hi loves! I'm posting this casual summer look that's EXCLUSIVELY from Old Navy because everything in their store this season is on point! This relaxed v-neck tee is one of my favorites. I may or may not own it in three colors/prints! Also, if you are like me and don't want shorts that are super mom-ish looking but want to dress your age, these 3.5 inch pull-on chambray shorts are perfect for summer! I feel modest but not frumpy in these, and they're super lightweight! Lastly, can we talk about these amazing cross-strap slides?! The snakeskin is right up my ally because no matter how hard I try, I can't stop buying this print... even if it is ever considered 'out' ;) 

Okay, so that's my outfit, now hey all you moms and mamas to be out there! If you're on the market for a carseat canopy, then look no further! This piece that you see on my babe's Uppababy carseat is from Hemmed In, and not only is it an amazing, protective carseat canopy, but it also serves as a tummy time play mat and a nursing cover! Both of which I've taken advantage of many times! Anything that keeps my diaper bag from filling up with things that could serve multiple uses is a favorite of mine for sure! There are some super darling prints in store, and be sure to check out their Instagram because Wendy, the sweet lady behind Hemmed In, posts videos about the piece on Mondays! Thank me later ;)
