Happy Summer!! It feels sooo good to be blogging again πŸ™‚ My schedule the past few weeks has been crazy. I never mentioned this on my blog before, but during the school year I’m a preschool teacher and at night I’m a server, so I wasn’t able to focus on my blog as much as I would have liked. The school year is over now, which means more time for doing what I love!! It feels amazing to be able to sit here and type again <3 I’m coming at you with a post I’m really excited about πŸ™‚ So you know how people tend to stalk their favorite celebs and people on Instagram? Well I am also guilty of that…only I stalk the Instagram of little online shops. I LOVE finding online stores that offer unique pieces that also cater to my style! It’s what I live for. When I stumble upon a new store online I become so excited and I want to buy everything. But since I am One Broke Blonde that can’t happen, but a girl can dream πŸ˜‰ An online store that I am currently obsessed with is Love Street Apparel. They seriously have THE cutest things, and they are pretty affordable as well!! I recently caved and ordered some pieces from them and let me tell you, I am in love with what I got. No lie, I’ve received soooo many compliments on these shoes (and the dress as well), that I decided I had to make a post about this adorable shop! The best part? The shoes were only $25!!

I am all about the platform sandals. I used to rock them so hard when I was in second-fifth grade. *Fun fact: when I was around 10 I owned a pair of shoes similar to these, and decided to run around my yard in them and I ended up breaking my ankle. It’s actually not that “fun” of a fact, but it’s humorous to look back on, and I swore to myself that I will not run in these shoes or break any more bones due to fashion malfunctions. On the brighter side though, these shoes compared to the ones of my younger days are incredibly comfortable! I wore them all day long on a day full of picnics and walking around and at the end of the day my feet weren’t aching a bit. They have an awesome amount of support, and the gold rim detailing around the platform is everything. They aren’t too high that it looks like you’re trying to channel your inner disco diva, but they do add the perfect amount of lift to make your legs look long and lean. I seriously can not rave about these shoes enough! They are the perfect summer shoe and you need to get them ASAP. I believe that Love Street Apparel is currently sold out of the shoes, but if you leave your email address they’ll notify you as soon as they go back in stock! πŸ™‚

I have mentioned this many times before, but outfits that are stylish AND comfy are my life. Recently I got this adorable t-shirt from Amuse Society and I’m so in love with it. It’s super comfy, and it has a cheeky little saying which makes it extra fun πŸ˜‰ I honestly feel the most like myself when I’m wearing an outfit that’s fun and comfortable. Graphic tees have been my jam for years and I will always love them even if they go out of style one day (which I hope never happens!). Amuse Society is a little bit pricier than I normally spend on graphic tees, but I get sooo much use out of it and wear it so much! It’s so soft, I could wear it all day every day if that was acceptable. I have paired this tee so many different ways. I almost always tie it up in a cute knot and then pair it with denim shorts, a skirt, jeans, overalls, the list goes on! Here I paired it with some of the softest denim shorts in the world from American Eagle. I know American Eagle can be expensive sometimes, but right now they’re having an AMAZING sale going on!! You know your girl is all about those sales πŸ˜‰ I finished off this look with picture-perfect wedges from Luca + Grae! I personally think these were a great price for how beautifully well-made they are, and how comfy! Honestly, I have yet to come across a pair of wedges or heels that don’t kill my feet so I think it’s okay to spend a little more on shoes for that reason. I hope this outfit inspires you and gets you ready for summer which is coming sooo quickly! I have a lot of fun posts coming so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss and deals or cute outfits πŸ˜‰

It’s Memorial Day which means summer is right around the corner!! Summer is my favorite season for a lot Β of reasons, and one of them is the fact that I have an obsession with buying bathing suits. It’s not really a “problem” per say, because over the years I have acquired a pretty extensive collection. Through my bikini shopping, I’ve found some that I die over and immediately buy, and then there are some that are adorable but SO FREAKING EXPENSIVE. I can understand why purses, shoes, jackets, and even sunglasses can be pricy…but something that you only wear for a few months out of the year that doesn’t contain much material I can’t wrap my mind around spending a lot on. So last summer when I saw this bathing suit online on Urban Outfitter’s website I fell in love with it, but then noticed the price. I just couldn’t let myself spend $72 on a bathing suit, especially one that I couldn’t try on beforehand and made sure I loved! So I sadly removed it from my cart, but constantly looked for a dupe everywhere. And then I found one. I found a dupe for this bathing suit I adore and it’s half the price!! It’s so cute and whether or not American Eagle meant to recreate this bathing suit they did an awesome job. I haven’t boughten it yet, but I plan on doing so and when I do you can bet I’ll post all about it πŸ™‚

Aerie Piping One-Piece Swimsuit

I told you I wasn’t kidding when I said I found a cheaper alternative πŸ˜‰ These bathing suits are so similar only one costs $72 and the other is $35!! I’m so excited to get this suit and do a review on it as well as some style tips! I hope this post gave you some inspiration and you’re as excited about this style steal as I am πŸ™‚ The Aerie suit comes in four different colors as well! I have a lot of fun summer posts planned so make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss any of the excitement (or random style steals ;))

It has been far too long since I last posted πŸ™ A lot has happened in the last week, and I haven’t had the chance to sit down and put out content that I’m proud of. But I’m back from my hiatus with a very exciting post and a lot more to come! Today I’m talking about one of my favorite brands, Winky Lux! If you haven’t seen my other post on Winky Lux check it out! πŸ™‚ Essentially, it is a super adorable beauty brand with very affordable prices and amazing products! They recently launched their Double Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick Collection which is to die for.

Watch out Kylie, Winky Lux is killing it with the liquid lipsticks. The Double Matte formula is made with real vanilla and avocado oil so it doesn’t dry your lips out at all. I’ve worn these lipsticks for an entire day and honestly, they are so hard to get off…which in my opinion is amazing. They are kiss-proof, water-proof, and smudge-proof giving you a gorgeous lip that lasts through whatever your day entails. I was so impressed by how soft they felt on my lips and how well they lasted through eating, drinking, and smooching my man πŸ˜‰ I absolutely hate the feeling of dry lipstick, which is why I’m not a huge fan of the Kylie Liquid Lipsticks. I personally feel like they dry my lips out so much and I end up looking flaky and gross. The Double Matte Liquid Lipsticks don’t make my lips feel like that at all! The avocado oil makes them so soft, smooth and comfortable! There are five stunning shades to pick from ranging from neutral to daring. My favorite are Lolli and Shortcake πŸ™‚ All the colors are amazing, but Whoopie Pie is a littleee too intense for me 😜 If you can pull off a super dark lip though, then you go girl.

I also need to talk about THE coolest lip balm. Ever. IT HAS A FREAKING FLOWER IN IT ARE YOU KIDDING HOW CUTE. When I first saw this product I literally just stared at it in awe. It is so cute and unique and the very best part is that it’s sooo hydrating. It also has a really cool technology where it can reacts to your skin’s pH levels giving you the perfect shade of pink. If that isn’t the coolest thing ever I don’t know what is. Winky Lux just released a new purple Flower Balm! There are five different flower colors to pick from! All of them do the same thing, it’s just your preference on color πŸ™‚

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!! Major shoutout to Winky Lux for kicking butt in the makeup world and creating awesome products that are so easy to rave about!! I genuinely recommend you try Winky Lux if you haven’t yet! They are awesome and you won’t be disappointed πŸ™‚ Stay tuned for more exciting posts by subscribing!
