Day to Night: Bodysuit Style

Bodysuits have been around for awhile now and for some insane reason I had put off trying this trend. I had many concerns. Some were pretty logical I would say, like how would one go to the bathroom in a pinch? Or wouldn’t you see panty lines through your clothes? Certainly you can start to see my irrational fear of this trend and why I put it off for so long.

When I was approached by my friends at Luxington Boutique to design an outfit that could easily take you from work to an after 5 cocktail, I jumped at the idea to create an outfit with a piece of clothing that I had never tried before. Insert this amazing olive green bodysuit here.

1. Day Look: Pair a bodysuit with a dramatic wide leg pair of pants to wear to the office. The contrast of a more fitted top and loose bottom will give you a chic look that is totally office appropriate. My favorite office looks are the ones that no one else is brave enough to try but you know will get you tons of compliments. This is that look and the plus side is that it’s insanely comfortable too.

2. Night Look: I firmly believe that every woman should always have a pair of jeans, heels and lipstick on hand at any time. Car, desk drawer, etc. In order to take this bodysuit from the office to after work cocktails, I simply added these 3 things plus my favorite 2 accessories- a black bralette and a choker necklace. These latter 2 items are my favorite ways to add a little bit of edge into your look. Combined, all 5 of these items are the perfect recipe to your casual after 5 attire.

I felt inclined to tell you that I couldn’t end this post without saying that both of my initial fears of wearing a bodysuit were quickly remedied after finding out that 1) most bodysuits have an  “easy-access” snap section so you can go to the bathroom without having to take the entire thing off and 2) so far everything that I have tried to wear with my bodysuit, panty lines have not been an issue.

So if you have been wanting to take the plunge on a bodysuit, I highly suggest getting one that is versatile enough to wear to work so you get the most use out of it! Luxington Boutique is the perfect one stop shop for both work wear and everything else in between so if you are in the Houston area, make sure to stop by and check them out!

Holiday Girls Night In Ideas with Olay Face Masks

I’m such a homebody at heart so it’s not uncommon (especially during the holidays) to find me snuggled up on the couch in my cozies, with a face mask on, sipping mama’s homemade hot chocolate (recipe here) and watching a good chick flick. I recently had the opportunity to try out Olay’s new launch of their clay stick face masks and I am so excited to share my favs. I like to use face masks just like the next girl, but I never know which ones to use or what the difference is between all of them. With so many on the market, it can be a little overwhelming am I right?!

I’ve also heard of the term “multi-masking” but felt a little too out of my element to give it a try it until recently. If you don’t know what “multi-masking” is, it is just what it sounds like: using multiple face masks at one time. The purpose of multi-masking is to target different facial needs since most of us don’t have the same type of skin or problem areas all over our face. While this Instagram famous beauty trend seems like playing Picasso on your face, it really is quite genius!

If you think about it, your T zone is usually oiliest which tends to cause clogged pores and breakouts. Because of this you want a mask that will target those stressed out areas, detox and reduce those pores, and leave your skin feeling nice and refreshed. Insert my favorite Olay Pore Detox clay stick Mask here! While I primarily use it on my forehead, I will also apply it on my nose and chin depending on how clogged my pores are in those areas. Personally, I saw the most noticeable results with this face mask being that I have oily, acne-prone skin and this mask left my skin feeling cleaner and softer than ever!

Moving onto the other areas of your face, your cheeks are normally going to be the dryer part of your face. They need hydration. Insert the Olay Glow Boost clay stick Mask here! Not only does this mask hydrate your skin, it leaves it with a natural looking glow. It brings new skin cells to life with micro-exfoliating white charcoal. This mask is very mild and is a good one to use all over on days that your skin feels a little dull.

Lastly, our skin always have those problem areas that just need a little extra TLC some days. Insert the Olay Fresh Reset clay stick Mask here! This mask is great just what it sounds like- a skin refresh. It is infused with anti-oxidant minerals to give your skin the extra loving that it needs. Lately my skin has been having horrible hormonal acne, so I will trade off between this mask and the Pore Detox.

The best part about these masks is that they are inexpensive and can be found at your local Walmart. With a low-price tag like that, you might as well try out all three. Why wear one mask when you could wear three at one time?! Another pus is that they are mess free You can apply the stick right onto your face without having to dirty your hands. This is actually better for your face as you are not getting dirt and bacteria from your hands onto your face.

If you do decide to have a girls night in complete with an Olay Stick mask or three, don’t forget that Hallmark Channel is already playing Christmas movies (eek!) and that mama’s homemade hot chocolate is just 4 ingredients. Talk about the perfect girls night in:)

Summer Date Night Ideas with Abercrombie

Y’all know how much I love Abercrombie and their new arrival section right now is SO good! I love that Abercrombie is really starting to incorporate a larger selection than they ever have. Meaning that they have options for all occasions and all ages. Whether you are heading on travels, date night, lounging around the house or working out, they really do have something for everyone. Their current campaign is “96 hours in Abercrombie” and when I thought about what 96 Hours in Houston (my city!) would look like, it recently has been a lot of date nights believe it or not! With it coincidentally being 96 degrees in Houston, date nights usually consist of little dresses because it’s just too darn hot for anything else so I’m sharing a few of my favorites.

The dress above is one of those little dresses that could take you from day to night and would certainly be perfect for beach vacation pictures. It’s a linen blend, stretchy on top, has pockets and runs true to size!

Would you have guessed that my top is actually a bathing suit? One of my favorite Summer tricks is to use a one piece bathing suit as a bodysuit! So after a day at the pool or beach, I just throw on a skirt like this one and head to dinner! If you wanted to pair the skirt with a real bodysuit, Abercrombie has some really good ones right now! Find them here.

This little mini dress is so cute I bought it twice! It comes in 5 colors and is the perfect fun and flirty dress. Dress it up for date night with a leather jacket and a pair of block heels. It does run on the smaller/shorter side so I suggest sizing up and getting the tall length if you are taller than 5″5′.
