I am declaring this my week of SKIN! Keep up with me all week on Instagram to see what products i’m posting about and come back here to read about them!
So many of us don’t know what we should be using on our skin. I’m here to tell you what I love and use on mine.
First off, ANY product you buy, wether it be for skin or hair, should be researched (at least a little bit). Sephora makes this super freaking easy. Download the app, search for a product, and you’ll find hundreds of reviews from people with different skin types. Reviews help me A LOT when I’m deciding on new products.
Another trick? Get samples! Sephora hands these out for free. Go in, ask for a sample of whatever new product you’re wanting to try and voila! Samples are a great way to test out how your skin will react to a new product. I typically give a product 3-7 days to become friends with my skin. If they aren’t bff’s by the end of the week, then byeeeeee.
So where to start? Keep up with me on Insta and look out for my next post this week!
P.S. Want to win a sample pack of my favorite products?! All you have to do is 1. Subscribe to my blog, 2. Follow me on Insta, and 3. Leave a comment on this post telling me you subscribed!

I’m a big fan of Banana Republic, Gap, and Old Navy. I can pretty much find what I’m looking for at any of these stores. Whether it be a pair of jeans, a blouse, a cute jumpsuit, or a fun dress. What I love most about them? There’s almost always a sale going on at at least one of these retailers.
At Banana Republic, I usually find really great quality items. When the items aren’t on sale, the price tag can be pretty high for my pocket. So when I can grab them at a great price, I take full advantage! PLUS, if you’re a cardholder at any of these stores, you get an additional 10% off at Banana!
I saw that there were having a sale and thought why not run in for a quick try-on?
I love a great fitting jumpsuit. I’m 5’1 and 127 lbs. I also have a small pudge 🙂 which I’m not a huge fan of but that’s a topic for another time. I tried this one on yesterday and felt great in it. I didn’t have to go for a petite because it’s cropped so that always makes me happy! I also love wearing white (I’m getting better and better and NOT staining my white tops lol). This one is great for so many occasions, you can wear it to a baptism, church, a barbecue, for a night out with the right accessories, for a day date, etc.
Next, I tried this adorable dress! Same pattern/print as the jumpsuit pictured above. This dress is super comfortable and great if you plan on eating a lot on the day you wear it! Fun fact about me: I base all of my outfit choices on how much I plan to eat that day.
I LOVE a comfy dress and this navy blue one is that. It’s a more stretchy material and it has pockets! Who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?! I would wear this one to work or you could even pair it with a denim jacket and sandals for a casual day.
I spotted this midi-dress and fell in love with it. The cut is perfect (keeps you modest) and it’s great for a number of occasions. it’s not completely white (navy blue stripes) so you could wear it to a wedding or to a brunch with friends!
Last but not least, this coral jeans and navy blazer combo. I saw these and fell in love with the color. The blazer was comfy and easy to move around in, which is great because there’s nothing worse than super stiff clothing. I liked the way they paired together. Navy blue and coral is never a mistake!
Let me know what you think in the comments? Any other Banana Republic lovers out there?!
I love a good find and Target never, ever fails me! I always leave with something great wether it be a dress, shoes or accessories. I left with a cute dress on my last TWO trips and this time was no different! I tried on a couple of different options and one adorable matching set.
I linked all of the items to make for easy shopping! Let me know which one is your favorite.
I love, love, love this set. It’s sold in two separate pieces so if you only wanted the top or the pants, you could purchase them separately. I’m wearing an XS in the pants and they fit ok, but I would prefer them in a small. The cami is size small and fits TTS.
Next I tried this Prologue dress. I think it’s a great option for work. The material is pretty thick and it has buttons that go down the length of the dress. I’m wearing a small here, but would definitely size down to an XS. I tied it as tight as it could go, but it seemed to bunch up a bit in the front. I love the quality of it (I’m honestly impressed with everything I’ve tried by this brand so far).
Last but not least I tried this white midi-dress. I liked the quality, but not the fit. I think I’m a bit too short for it. Otherwise, it’s super cute!
I stopped by the GAP on my lunch break today because I saw they were having an amazing sale online! 40-70% off sitewide and an extra 20% off with code SUPER. Amazing, right!? I figured I’d head over to store and try a couple of different items on and I ended up buying the most adorable, versatile fitted button down shirt!
I love these looks because they’re really comfortable and can be worn on the weekend or on casual Friday at the office. The GAP offers so many different styles, it’s one of the reasons I love shopping there so much. They always have a great deal, the quality of the clothing is great and really cute!
I tried this super soft light green striped dress on first, I love the knot detail in the front because it helps to create that slimming effect that I love so much! The fit was TTS (I’m wearing a small). If you want a more relaxed fit I would size up one size.
Next was this unbelievably comfortable t-shirt dress. I’d probably pair this with a jean jacket. I might also add a belt to give it some shape. It fit TTS (I’m in a small here) As for shoes, a pair of wedges, sneakers, or sandals would look great! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find this exact one online, but I linked a similar one!
I really love these pants! I tried on a six 6 (my usual size) but I would definitely size down in these. I think a 4 would have fit perfectly. These are great because again they can be worn to work or the weekend. The sweater had a really nice feel to it and I loved the fit. It runs TTS (I’m in a small).
The last thing I tried was this adorable fitted boyfriend shirt that I ended up buying! I got such a great deal– It was originally $59, on sale in store for 50% off + and extra 20% off + and extra 10% off for being a cardholder!
I think it looks adorable with these chinos, but I’d wear it with jeans, denim shorts, a skirt, the options are endless with this one!
Ann Taylor LOFT is having an awesome Friends + Family sale right now! 40% off + an extra 10% off your purchase! It ends April 20th so if you like anything shop it now!
LOFT is one of my favorite stores. They always have at ton of great basic options as well as great work and weekend wear. I feel like almost everything in the store can go from day to night with some accessory or shoe changes.
I ran over this afternoon to do a quick try-on session and I fell in love with quite a few pieces. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any cute shoes with me! (LOL)
All of the outfits are linked for easy shopping. They are
also available in my ‘Shop My Instagram’ page.
