Springtime Date Night Outfit & Makeup

As I've said before, I just love sundresses! They are so easy to wear and of course there are so many cute ones to choose from. They are a quick choice for any day but I especially love them for date nights. You can always counting on looking cute without being too over done. My boyfriend & I always go out to dinner at least one a week, either Friday or Saturday night. We ended up going to Chili's last night! They have my favorite drink! Anyways, here are my before dinner and after dinner pictures.
For my makeup I used Maybelline's Dream Liduid Mousse: Airbrush Finish in Pure Beige- Medium 2. BeautiControl Extra Help Concealer in Medium. Maybelline's Fit Me Pressed Powder in Shade 310. Bonne Bell Glimmer Bronze, loose powder in Gold 'N Glitz. ULTA cheek color in Infatuation. Wet 'n Wild Megalast retractable eyeliner in 690A Blackest Black. Maybelline Eyestudio eye shadow in Pink Persuasion. Loreal Voluminous False Lashes Mascara in Blackest Black. Clinique Lipstick in Glazed Berry. N.Y.C. City Proof Extended Wear Lipgloss in shade 452 Perpetually Hot Pink.

Dress, came with belt: Rewind from Kohl's on sale for $17.99! Sweater for when it cooled down: Old Navy (I got this as a gift a few years ago) Shoes: Target. All jewelry I've had for quite some time!

Who Says Camouflage Can't Be Girly?

Camouflage is a tricky one. I mean it's prefect for those country boys who love to hunt but if you want to try the trend without looking like you're heading into the woods, I've got some tips. The cargo jacket is my favorite. I paired it with an ivory lace dress, used a brown tie belt, some fun brown pumps and accessories and this look is far from blending in! It stands out but isn't too far out there. I've paired this jacket with a simple tee, skinny jeans and flats for a casual look. I've also worn it with a black top, bootcut jeans with heels for an easy going out look.

Mixing Prints

Prints. How do you wear them, let alone mixing them, right? On the runways & in magazines, they are always mixing extreme bold prints and they look great! However, in the real world, they can seem to crazy or out there. Here's my way of mixing three prints. You'll notice two of them are my accessories: snakeskin clutch and leopard pumps. If you are nervous to mix prints, accessories is going to be the easiest place to start. This look is good for a lunch date, night out with the girls or for work (I would pick a longer length dress though for the workplace). Of course, the great thing is these pieces can work with tons of other things in my closet.

Time for Sundresses

I just love springtime! Although, living in Texas feels like the summers I'm used to in Ohio! However.. bring on the heat! I love being able to soak up the sun. I am job searching and honestly hoping just to get something part-time so I can still enjoying the sunshine. I had to run a few errands yesterday and it was a HOT one! So I went to my closet and pulled this ruffled floral sundress out! I paired it with a cute pair of black sandals and I was ready to head out! That's what I love about sundresses! They are so easy and can be worn with so many different accessories to get a different look each time you wear it.
