August Favorites

hey y'all!

once again, can't believe another month has come and gone! this year is just flying by. August was a crazy busy month, which is probably why it flew by so quickly. If you didn't see my Coffee Date Post #1, you might have missed some of the highlights of the month -- traveling, sorority recruitment, and moving into my new house at school! A lot of exciting events happened. Today I will be sharing with y'all my favorite fashion items and beauty products for the month. If you click the widget down below you can shop everything I am talking about!

1. Maybelline Touch of Spice Lipstick.

This lipstick is a new fav of mine!! You might have seen me talk about it in my favorite summer lipstick post last month, and for another month it has been a go-to of mine. while it's not particularly a "summery" color, I do love it because it is neutral, but still gives color on your lips. Great for class, work, coffee dates, etc. 

2. John Freida Go Blonder Sheer Blonde Spray.

I have really been focusing on my hair lately, and making sure I am taking good care of it. While this product doesn't improve the health of my hair, I still love it a lot! It is a great product to gradually/subtly lighten your hair, and if you're like me and don't dye your hair, this is a great way to bring out the natural highlights. It's less than $10 and lasts quite awhile!

3. Windowpane Blouse

I bought a blouse with the "window pane" print that has been in style for awhile now, and I have been wearing it like crazy! Mine is super lightweight, so I am on the lookout for one that would be more suitable for the fall and layering. This top goes with everything which is why I love it!

4. Olive green jeggings/jeans.

Last month I scored these adorable jeans from Gap on sale, and I love them! They are so comfy and I adore the color -- it is definitely one of my favorites of all time. They also go with everything, which makes them super easy to style. You may have seen them on my Insta already, but come fall time they will be worn all the time!

5. Steve Madden sandals.

I have worn these sandals a ton lately, because they are seriously so versatile. Since they are brown and black, they can match just about any outfit, which makes getting ready and putting together an outfit that much easier! Plus, they are on sale right now -- definitely worth checking out!

6. Chokers.

Another hot trend this summer has been chokers, and I finally embraced them. I styled a pearl/leather choker in this post, and I love that one because it is less harsh/edgy for my girly style. I linked a few that are really cute, and could work into anyone's style!

7. Pantene BB Creme.

Like I mentioned above, I have been really into taking as best care of my hair as possible, and this product has been a miracle worker for my hair! I think my hair has grown quite a bit recently, and I am so thankful because I want my long hair back. This product claims to do ten things for your hair, but I especially love it for its smoothing and frizz reducing properties. Definitely worth the price -- its under $5 and you can get it at Target!

I hope you all had a fabulous August and enjoyed this post! I am so excited for September -- football games, fall (hopefully) coming, PSL's (so basic...I know!) and so much more! What are you most excited for this month? Leave a comment down below!
