Gladiator Sandals

A trend I've loved for a while is the gladiator sandal! I've had shorter ankle height pairs in the past but really love the tall ones.Each season I love seeing them in stores and magazines but have been too intimidated to try them on. I thought they wouldn't work on my legs. Fears of short stumpy legs kept me staring at them from afar.

Finally this season I ordered a few pairs (this one and this one) and made myself try them on. I wanted to either fall in love or mark them as a trend 'not for me'. When I finally tried on the first pair, I saw how flattering they can be! After some trial and error, I have a few tips on how to flatter your legs if you are worried about your legs looking short. 
  1. Purchase a pair that is fitted around your legs but not tight. 
  2. Lace up pairs can be tightened and loosened to fit your legs exactly.
  3. Pick a pair that matches or is close to your skin tone.

Blue Floral Romper

I've spoken the praises of rompers many, many times! The right romper is an outfit in one piece. It is as easy as a dress but more comfortable. Many of my rompers are casual and comfortable. I like to have a few dressy ones too. 

The silky material and bold floral print upgrade this romper from basic to statement maker! I wore this blue floral romper our last night in Vegas. We had planned a night of Mexican food and gambling. I wanted something dressy but comfortable. The drawstring waist allows you to fit it perfectly to your body. I also love the tie at the top. You can keep it loose and the slit at the top is more flirty. Tie it up and you have a more conservative look. If you are looking for a romper, the under $100 price tag of this one makes it hard to pass up!

I plan on wearing this to an upcoming bridal luncheon and many other events this summer. Pairing with boots or booties and a jacket will take this romper into fall.

America the Beautiful

The biggest summer holiday is almost here. Get your hot dogs and burgers ready for your cookouts! I love the 4th of July. I have a few family members with birthdays on the 4th so it is typically a big family celebration including our own amateur fireworks show. 

I also love the color scheme for the holiday! I've picked some great pieces to help you celebrate. No matter how you celebrate America, I've got you covered!

Nude Lips

I love the internet! It brings information to me at a moment’s notice. The internet has helped my wardrobe immensely by bringing fashion to me that I wouldn’t have had access to in Oklahoma otherwise. It is also gives me the ability to have Everyday K! It can also make me feel utterly annoyed, like when I’m trying to get a post uploaded and my wifi connection is gone! It’s my fault that I waited until the last minute and now it’s Thursday night at midnight and I can’t go anywhere else to get internet. So I apologize for this post going up late!

This is a post I never thought I would be writing. I have always been someone that loved a bold lip color! You can see from this post and this post that I loved bold reds and hot pinks. It doesn’t take much for me to pull out a bright color. Some people may be scared of the reds and pinks, but that is how I’ve felt about nude lip colors.

The problem I had with nude lip colors was that I never found one that seemed to not make me look washed out or pasty. Bright colors flatter my skin tone and I expect a nude lip color to do the same. After trying a few colors I gave up and decided nude lip colors just weren’t for me.

After seeing it recommended online, I was tempted to try Maybelline’s Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks. Instead of going for my first pick, a matte red, I went for Nude Thrill. It was love at first swipe! It’s a ‘your lip color but better’ color. It adds some definition with a barely there look. It will flatter most skin tones. If you need a bit more pink/blush tones to your color the other nude in the collection, Nude Flush, is your ticket.

Now onto the formula. First of all, it is matte! Matte lip colors have become my favorite lately. Also, the formula feels so good. Normally, I find any matte formulas drying and tight feeling. Maybelline isn’t lying when they call this formula velvet. It feels amazing! I would recommend any of the colors in this line.

My only con to the liquid lipstick is the wear. It will last about 4 hours really well. After that you will need another application. I don’t mind this too much because I love the feel of it so much.

Do you have any nude lip colors that you like?

Taking a Plunge in Vegas

Our first night in Vegas may have been my favorite. We had a fantastic dinner at Lavo with plenty of yummy drinks and amazing food. Honestly, it is hard not to have a great time with 13 of your close friends! The night was such a whirlwind that I completely forgot to take some outfit pictures! I threw this back on the other day so I could share it with you all!

I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a bit for the first night in Las Vegas but not go completely crazy! This plunge romper caught my eye from the moment I saw it online. When I tried it on I realized the deep plunge was a bit more than I bargained for. I realized adding a bralette beneath was the perfect compromise. It added a bit of coverage but kept the flirty aspects of the romper. 

The bottom of the romper is basically a skort. The front is a wrap skirt and the back looks like a traditional romper. What I love about the front is the points on the skirt. Along with a heeled sandal, they help elongate your legs. 

The romper doesn't need much help in the accessory department... just a little sparkle and a red lip.
