Cropped Out

Hope everyone had a fun Memorial Weekend!  We took advantage of the wonderful weather to walk around town and then grilled out with friends.  And since we are all self proclaimed foodies, it was a fabulous grill out!!!  I will give you a glimpse of the fresh strawberry margaritas my friend Jen and I made.  The peace d'resistance was definitely the homemade cinnamon whipped cream that she brilliantly decided to place on top.  I know what your thinking, whipped cream on a margarita?- but yes.  Always yes when it comes to whipped cream.  Channeling my inner Kim K. for this outfit, as she is the queen of body form dresses.  It was the perfect weather to test out my new crop top!






Ice Cream Necklace: from childhood // Fan Necklace: Forever 21 // Long Chain: from Mom

It was a peachy sort of day, so I tried out my new peach make up! 

Lip Lacquer: Show Off by Rimmel London in Luna // Mac Sheertone Blush: Peaches



Sunnies: Lacoste // Crop Top: Forever 21 (similar) // Skirt: Express (found during summer closet clean) // Handbag: Target (seen here)



How did you spend your Memorial Day?

    1. They were surprisingly simple to make! I think the key is having the fresh strawberries, not frozen! And then having a friend that makes her own whip cream. haha

  5. OK a) whipped cream in a margarita is freaking genius. b) i missed your face! Life is busy and I feel like I haven't been able to check in on you. and c) you are rocking this body con outfit! Love this on you! And your confidence is your best accessory - makes me smile!

  10. I love Carylee's comment! Your confidence IS your best accessory and so inspiring! But I also adore your necklace layering skills (yes, it's a skill) and if Kim K is the queen of body con, you are the queen of manicures. An homemade strawberry margaritas?!? They look amazing.
