It’s been a while since a good old-fashioned Friday Feels! The pool house project has been taking up all my time lately, but I do have a few fun finds to share!
The temps are in the 40’s this week (break out the shorts and flip flops Michigan!) and this “heatwave” has me thinking of spring fashion. The return to wearing real clothes is feeling closer, and I have a few pieces I’ve added to my closet in the last few weeks.
First up these cute sandals. They perfectly pair with jeans for early spring, but look adorable with shorts and casual dresses too. Plus they are under $35, and the nude color is so versatile.
I added this tank to my cart to qualify for free shipping (that gets me every time), and I love it! It’s great with leggings and sneakers, but stylish enough to throw on with jeans and a necklace too. I bought the olive color, but it comes in a few different colors. Here is the olive on me below with the cute sandals too.
Ok, so tank top weather is wishful thinking for us up north yet, but I found this cute springy cardigan to help me transition to spring. Cozy enough to wear now, but lightweight enough that it will work with denim shorts too. It comes in black and green and it’s under $20!
We have all seen the memes going around that the adorable Gen-Z kids are telling us we are old dorks if we side part our hair and don skinny jeans. I personally will not be letting go of my skinny jeans anytime soon, but I did just buy this cute pair of straight-leg jeans. They are a great color, comfortable, and manage to not look like frumpy mom jeans. I feel like they are the perfect pair of “dip your toe in the water” non-skinny jeans. I threw them on with the cozy sweater above so you could see the fit.
I also snagged this pretty dress. It feels like pajamas, can be dressed up or down, and comes in a ton of different colors. Other bonuses for me, you can wear a real bra with it. The wrap across the front is suuuper flattering if you have had a kid or two, a chilidog or two…or both!
I’m almost out of my normal blush and bronzer palette. I’ve been wanting to try something new. This Benefit Cheek Party sampler pack is perfect to try out new colors, plus there is actually a ton of product in them! How much blush does one person actually use? These will last a long time, and I love all of the colors.
While I was at Ulta, I grabbed a refill on my favorite Buxom lipgloss, and I noticed they had this new Buxom Power-full Plump lip balm. With mask-wearing, I’ve been reaching for chapstick and lip balm more than lipgloss lately. I love that this one has a touch of color to it. I bought the pink color – Big O (ahem) and immediately ordered the Dolly Fever color too. It has that cool minty slightly plumping effect that Buxom is known for but in a subtle color chapstick form.
I haven’t had a manicure in over a year, and to be honest, it’s not my favorite thing to go sit and do. There already aren’t enough hours in the day, so I don’t want to drive somewhere to sit and get my nails done. I mentioned earlier this year that I love the new Olive and June nail polish kit which makes it so easy to paint your nails. Well, I recently tried out Red Aspen nail dashes and it’s even easier! I never thought I would be a press-on nail kind of girl, but these come in really pretty neutral colors. They have wild ones too if that’s more your style. I love that they come in a shorter length. They were super easy to put on, and 5 days later they are still going strong. You can use my link here to check them out for yourself! I think that’s all I have for you this week, happy weekend!
