What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday: STILL Wearing

Morning Friends!
How was your Labor Day?
Are you still wearing your white pants?
I wore all of my white shorts and pants over the weekend before I had to pack them up for next summer.  I’m totally ok with this because it makes me feel like we’re one step closer to fall.  :-) Now if I could somehow get the temperature to correlate with the usage of my white pants we’d all be happy right?
Well while my white shorts and pants are gone, there are a few things that I got over the summer that I just can’t pack up yet.
I just can’t stop wearing them!
You know when you find a new product and you wonder “how in the world did I live this long without it?!” it’s got to be good! 
Here are a few things I purchased and wore ALL. THE. TIME. this summer!Still Wearing Summer 2013
1. I love make-up and it’s something that I do everyday.  However, I never knew that I was missing something so HUGE to my makeup routine.  Thanks to Meg, the guru of all things make-up, who posted on the advantages of filling in the eyebrows, I finally took the plunge and started filling in my eye brows.  Let me tell ya: it makes a huge difference!  My face has more structure & shape.  Since I didn’t know if I would like it or not, I started with a pretty cheap eye brow pencil.  The Revlon Brow Fantasy is awesome because it comes with both the gel and the pencil; I use the pencil in brunette.  Seriously, check out Meg’s blog; she is a genius!
2./3./5.  Y’all, I fell in love with Stella & Dot this summer.  I’m talking head over heels!  I purchased the arrow necklace, arrow bangle, and swallow stud earrings.   I really like the arrow fashion lately, and the bird earrings…..I mean come on if you’ve been around here for a while you know I’ve got a thing for birds (not real birds of course, just fake decorative birds lol check out this weird obsession I have)  I just had to have these little love birds.  I love these pieces, and I have not taken them off since I got them (over 3 months ago) No lie!  I can wear them all the time because they match everything and the quality is spectacular.  I even love the packaging!  haha see I’m gah gah for Stella & Dot!

4.  This summer was insane; I taught three classes and between reading, planning, and grading there was zero pool time.  No joke, I did not get to the pool or beach one time this summer!!!!  Since I already have a fairly pale complexion, I thought I could at least pretend that I got to see the sun lol I have used Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer (Fair to medium) before and this summer was no different.  This is a great, affordable, tanner that doesn’t streak while still giving me healthy color.
6.  I was stalking this hat at Crystal Faye for a long time, so when I won a giveaway (Thank you Pamela!) I knew exactly what I was going to get.  I absolutely love this monogramed ball cap.  I seriously wore this hat so much this summer, from casual Fridays at work to trips to the grocery store.  Check out these selfies from my instagram.  Great hat, right?!  I even got my sister one of these for her birthday!  Love it!Monogram Hat Selfies

I love Stella and Dot! I think I discovered bright color this summer, so I am bummed to put away all my breezy summer tops, but at least I can carry that into some fall colors, right?

I love that hat.

I remember when we bought #4 from HEB!

I don't know if it's true, but I heard that the white pants rule was really a subtle way of telling girls not to wear white during their "time of the month".

Yep, you got me the cute monogrammed hat and I love it as well! I am currently wearing it everyday at the beach!!! Thanks again!

I love that we both have a thing for birds! And the hat is too cute! Now I know where you got it from! I love a good hat, especially on bad hair days!

I am not fashionista, so my only season fashion change are sleeves. Short to no in Spring and summer. And long and cardigans in the winter! haha

PS - I saw Meg's eyebrow post. It's amazing what it can do for your look!

I have to admit that I'm not a fan of the no white after Labor Day rule. It's just too hot in the south to put them away yet! Love love love the monogram hat and the Stella & Dot jewels!
