Don’t Wear a Jersey to Fit in on Sundays

Good Morning ♥

It’s football season. The weather starts to get cooler (well, except here) the leaves start to change, and the weekend becomes a 48 hour(ish) marathon of hot men in tights. Doesn’t sound so bad right? What does sound bad is ill-fitting football jerseys, plus they are just so hot for Florida. There are ways around this ladies. First of all, in case you didn’t see VStylist owner Tamy Lugo’s segment on What to Wear on Game Day on Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend, be sure to do so (featuring, moi!)

There are a ton of cute tees that you can don on game day, this being one. I like generic game-day tees because they are versatile so you can wear them on college game day or NFL! You can wear it to the Buccs game or to support the home team, Eagles! It makes it easier for me because if I don’t wear TB gear then I get yelled at from my Florida fans! If I do, then I am called a trader from my Philly posse. So, this way it’s a win-win for me!

I got this particular shirt from Reese Witherspoon’s Nashville boutique, Draper James.

My shorts are from Fab’rik in South Tampa but they no longer have them, however, you can still snag them at Buckle. They are Flying Monkey, which is one of my favorite denim brands. I love mixing a little femininity to a men’s kind of day!

My Skin Care Regime

Good Morning ♥

Being that we are moving into the “colder” months I wanted to take a moment to spotlight my skin products and how I make sure I take extra care of my skin in the colder months.

In the last year or so between my level of stress and my job, (stress + staring at a computer screen) and the sun, I started to notice my 11s getting deeper and deeper. I thought about botox but I didn’t really want to mess with my skin like that just yet. I searched high and low for different wrinkle creams and nothing worked. When I met with a co-worker in Philly I asked how old she was and she said my age and I said “well you have the best skin I have ever seen in my life what do you use?!” She said “KIEHL’S“.

SHOP KIEHLS HERE

Ironically enough in my Birchbox that month was the Kiehl’s cleansing wash. During the #NSale Marissa & I went into Nordstrom and I got the Kiehl’s eye cream. The large 1.7 will run you about $60 or so. I also bought Fab Girl Slim which contains caffeine to tighten up the pores, a rose spray and lavender coconut oil. I use all of these products, along with my Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening kit before bed. I also apply the Kiehl’s and rose spray in the morning as well. What a difference. It has been a little over a month now and they have diminished and I have talked 3 of my friends into buying the cream! I wish I had a before picture but I don’t because I have edited all of them to hide the 11s. I do get a lot of compliments saying how great my skin looks lately and that I am “glowing”… well it’s not a baby so must be my skincare!

What to Wear: Denim on White Denim

Rise & shine divas! White denim always makes me feel like such an adult. Like ok I can handle wearing white without spilling {clear drinks only please!}. One of the new styles sweeping the streets is white denim or white in general with jean denim and I have really taken a fancy to it.

I bought my white denims a few years back at Nordstrom Rack, they are the perfect fit! A little long, but all jeans usually are on me. Nothing a little folding can’t fix.

The shirt I found at Marshall’s. Mom bought me a gift card for Easter so I bought my derby hat and this off the shoulder, tie-sleeve denim top.

The necklace is gorgeous from White House Black Market, my doll of a friend Elizabeth bought me for my birthday!

My white wedges are 100 years old and I cannot remember for the life of me where they are from but they are super comfy and edged in gold, love white and gold!
Here are a few more editor picks for this look:

Summer Style: Swimwear for Your Body-Type

Good Morning Peaches ♥ Happy Memorial Day weekend!!

Did you listen to my #girlboss songs yet? Get your ipods ready it’s almost Memorial Day. Know what else that means… SALES!?? **ALL SWIM SUIT AND PHOTOS WERE TAKEN FROM http://www.kohls.com. PLEASE VISIT THE SITE FOR MORE**

Are we swimsuit ready!? That’s ok, are we ever really “ready”? Confidence in 90% of looking good ladies, don’t forget that!

One of the most important take-aways I have learned during my last year of blogging is to give the readers what they want. I had a request to do a swim cover-up blog for your body type. Well, you got it! But I in fact took it a step further and am giving you the best swimwear AND cover ups for your body type!! Ready? Here we go.

For my skinny-mini’s:

Triangle tops are best suited for women with smaller chests and tiny waist lines. I also love the bandeau top and I also feel best for this body type. However, I do think you can wear a bandeau if you have a little larger chest, but it’s all about your comfort and support level.

Tie-up bottoms are best suited for a taller and thinner body type. But, I do think again this depends on your comfort-ability with your body. It’s the year(s) of the butt, so it’s ok to show a little. The cheeky bottoms are great for women with smaller rear-ends to enhance what you do have.

2712592_ALT

Side ruching works for anyone really. Just be aware when you are buying a bottom that is not tie up that it does not cinch your hips too much, you don’t want to look like you have a muffin top!

2715925

For my summer sisters with a larger chest, these two type tops would be best. Shows ’em off & keeps ’em in!!!

The tie-dye high-low dress looks great on my ladies of height. God did not bless me in that area, but that’s ok, I am fun-sized and He still loves me the way I am 🙂

The other two white and black cover ups are great and here’s why. After a day at the beach when you get into the car sometimes you just want to lose the suit. These are both great cover ups where you can feel comfortable taking it off for the drive home right underneath!

I went to Rebecca’s yard sale one Saturday and I pulled this dress from her clothing rack and said how cute it was (a little large for me but still adorbs). She said yes but you need to wear something under it… DUH! like a bathing suit! How cute is this as a cover up for a cruise, a boat day or a day at the pool? Fancy it up with a fabulous light-weight dress. I think this is great for medium sized body type, an in between bikini or one piece.

AH! And here it is. The one piece. Ok, I am going to be honest (sure that’s not a surprise) but I HATE tankini’s. Not my thing. I think there are a ton of one pieces that can make a fuller figured woman look sexy as hell. Here are some below.

2701793_Black (1)27328722802645

Here are some great one piece cover ups.

For my full-figured ladies, again, I am sticking to my word here- NO TANKINIS for me. Ruching is your best friend!

2707029

If you are comfortable enough, please wear a two piece. There are plenty that still cover up enough  but can make you feel sexy and confident like the one below. Gorgeous. Again, ruche ruche ruche!
