What’s In My (Summer) Makeup Bag

summer-makeup-illustratoin-livvyland-blog-olivia-watson**Artwork by Kimberlee

As I get deeper into the world of blogging, I’ve been exposed to a lot of different makeup brands that I probably wouldn’t have found on my own while strolling around Sephora. I used to be the person who swore off foundation or eyebrow powder, but in 2014 I was a newbie to the makeup world (…and in comparison to my fellow fashion bloggers, I probably still am…!) and was terribly afraid of layering up makeup in fear of looking (and feeling) unlike myself. However, by 2018 I’ve experimented a bit more and found some tried and trues I keep buying over and over again – and I’m super excited to share with y’all!

That said, you’ve likely seen a few of these brands mentioned on my blog before (hey there, Supergoop!), and I’m also including some new ones that have made the cut over the years. Sooo, let’s get to it! Ps. Sharing these items in order of how I apply them – start to finish…

Relaxed High Rise Jeans (Under $100!)

I hope you’ve had a great week – can’t believe how quickly this one flew by…but definitely not complaining that we get to sleep in tomorrow. 😉 It’s a rarity you’ll find me in a dress on any given day (love them but for some reason I can’t stop/won’t stop with my crazy denim obsession), and even in the summer, jeans are one of my go-to outfit staples. Madewell is a brand I continue to spend aaaall my pennies on (…but hey, building a wardrobe you LOVE is totally worth it, right? Oh ya know, always rationalizing my shopping habits over here….), and their denim selection is one of my very favorites. When I saw this particular pair (called the “Perfect Summer Jeans“) hit the websites of numerous retailers, I immediately snatched up a pair. High rise, flattering on the backside (…no pancake butt with these!) and overall just such a great fit – can’t recommend them enough!

6 Shoes I’ll Be Wearing All Summer

livvland-blog-olivia-watson-best-summer-sandals-any-occasion-fashion-illustration**Artwork by Kimberlee

As you have probably gathered…I have a strong affinity for tan, brown, dark brown, light brown – aaaall the browns on the color spectrum – shoes. I try my hardest to branch out and put the black pair in my shopping cart, but just before I click “confirm payment” my heartstrings are pulled and I’ve swapped the black woven mules for the brown pair. Immediately, I feel relief. 😉 (Anyone else try to push their “style boundaries” only to run back to your ‘ol reliables? That’s me, all day long!). I know I’m like a broken record about this color, whether it’s for shoes or handbags, but I really just love the warm tones and how a pair of perfect brown/tan/cognac (whatever the word!) adds such an approachable and casual feel to an outfit. Sometimes black can seem too harsh or severe when I’m slipping on my shoes with an outfit, but my trusty brown shoe collection feels less intense and more “me.” If you follow me on the ‘gram, you’ve likely seen quite a few of these kicks before, but I figured a summer shoes roundup was in order to properly give them the spotlight they deserve! 😉 From a summer wedding, to a baby shower, to a date or even a grocery run – these shoes can do it all!

Sharing six ways to wear these fab shoes below…

The $24 Tee You Need In Your Life

TEE. It’s the softest thing and the colors + stripes are so fun and retro. Kinda has a 70s vibe to it and I am all about it! Aaand the best part? It’s just $24 (yaaas!). Y’all know I love me a good coffeehouse, and Tom’s Coffee Roasters (yep, owned by Tom’s shoes) is always a solid go-to for a yummy latte and minimal people around so I don’t have to feel completely ridiculous while I snap some quick outfit photos… 😉 (Ohh the weird life of a blogger! haha).

Ohh that perfect yellow color…how stinkin’ cute is this for summer?! I love the updated take on a classic romper – that knot-front is adorable and the ruffle trim adds such a flirty vibe. I don’t feature “occasion” looks that often, but when I spotted this romper I knew it would be such a fun look for anything from a date night to a bright and airy wedding guest outfit. Spilling all the details below!
