FASHION

I absolutely love spring and summer fashion! It’s so light and airy and happy. A few of my favorite pieces for this season are florals, floppy hats, and chunky heels. These pieces are so cute paired together too! Hats just as such a touch of elegance to an outfit if paired with the right outfit.

This dress is from Jessa Kae and is my absolute favorite dress of all time. It’s made with the lightest, softest material and has the cutest geometric pattern. The shoes are from Toms and are the most comfortable heels ever! They go with practically everything, from jeans and a cute shirt to dresses. I got this hat from H&M, and I’m obsessed. It adds a gorgeous touch to any outfit!

SKINCARE

Skincare is so important in the spring, due to the temperatures changing, more sunlight, and humidity.

First up is my absolute favorite moisturizer. The Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator leaves my skin so hydrated without making it oily.  It has aloe water and hyaluronic acid, which is the perfect combination for hydrated skin.

Next is the Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum with SPF 40. This product can be worn alone or as an invisible makeup primer! It acts as a sort of tinted moisturizer; I never even have to wear foundation when I have this on. It also has SPF 40, which is PERFECT for hot spring days.

The Boscia Charcoal Pore Pudding Intensive Wash-Off Treatment is my all-time favorite charcoal mask (and trust me, I’ve tried almost all of them). This mask has a mix of black and white charcoal, where white charcoal is known to absorb 1,000 times its weight in impurities. The charcoal pair works together to minimize the appearance of pores while lifting away impurities and excess oil. I’m obsessed with this mask because it leaves y skin so smooth and clear so I hardly feel like wearing any foundation!

My favorite mascara right now is the LashCraft Big Volume Mascara by Sephora Collection. It lengthens my lashes so much with just one coat! This mascara lasts all day, even through working out at the gym & the high humidity levels ( gotta love living in the south:) ).

Strawberry Picking + A Really Happy Day

 Hey y’all!

For today’s blog post, I’m going to share with y’all my day of strawberry picking, seeing Avengers: Infinity war (no spoilers, I promise), and just having an all-around good day. I usually don’t do blog posts like this, but it was such a happy day that I wanted to share it with you all!

I started out my day by going to mass with my best friend before driving an hour to a strawberry farm in the absolute middle of nowhere. We ate SO many strawberries and had an amazing time. The sun was shining and I could feel the glory and presence of God in those happy moments. It was beautiful!img_0427

P.s.: My best friend moves to Hawaii in less than a month! Pray that she and her family have safe travels and that she finds peace and comfort in her new home♥

Later in the day, I went to dinner at Oshi, a local Poké bowl restaurant.  (& psst … it’s pronounced “POH-keh.”). If you haven’t heard of poké, it’s a Hawaiian dish has chunks of tofu (my fav), fish, or other protein tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and delicious sauces. My personal favorite is rice topped with tofu, edamame, mango, pineapple, & avocado topped with a spicy sauce. I have yet to perfect making poké at home, but as soon as I perfect it I will post a recipe here! I meant to get a picture of what this delicious food looks like, but it was so yummy and I ate it too quickly. oops 🙂

After dinner, we went and saw Avengers: Infinity War. I won’t spoil anything for those who haven’t seen it, other than I seriously debated going again the next day to watch it again. 

All in all, it was just an amazing day and I wanted to share my happiness with all of you♥

Much love + too many strawberries,

Chloe♥

5 Spring Fashion Essentials

Hey yall!

Spring one of my absolute favorite times in regards to fashion. The weather is not too hot, not too cold, and florals are totally acceptable at any time of day (yes please!!). I wanted to share with you a few of my fashion essentials for spring that I absolutely cannot live without! Spring & summer fashion is my personal favorite to wear and shop for. It’s finally time to get rid of all the many winter layers! I absolutely love how easy it is to throw on a dress and some accessories and you don’t have to think twice about it when the weather is nice.

ONE.

A plain white t-shirt

Plain white t-shirts are so simple yet so stylish and go with absolutely anything. Pair it with a floral kimono-style wrap, a light cardigan, or simply some pretty jewelry. you cant go wrong! This will also look good worn simply with jeans, under a blazer, or tucked into a high-waisted skirt

TWO.

Colorful Shoes

Colorful shoes, like the ones in the picture above, can turn a plain outfit into a fashion statement. I love the pop of color that they bring! The favorites that I have I got from Target (clearance aisle, who’s with me?:) )

THREE.

Boho Jewelry 

Simple, bohemian style jewelry (like rings and bracelets)  is so great for spring. I love the way this simple but pretty accessories pair with florals and spring colors. A simple set of stacked bracelets can add so much more excitement to a casual spring out, like jeans and a white tee or even florals. My absolute favorite places to get simple, pretty boho jewelry are Pura Vida and Sand Cloud. You can totally get 20% off of your Pura Vida order with my code: CHLOEMCALPIN20 & 15% off of your Sand Cloud purchase with my code: ChloeMcA15

FOUR

Collared shirt.

This is a timeless wardrobe staple that can easily add a touch of class to any outfit.  It looks great when styled with a high waisted skirt, denim shorts, or jeans. These shirts are so comfy and look effortlessly elegant in any outfit.  My sister is totally rocking this outfit (above picture) and I may or may not steal it from her closet… sorry not sorry 🙂

FIVE.

Anything Floral!

Y’all already know my obsession with florals. I really think that they go with everything and look so classy if styled right. The most important thing to keep in mind with florals is to not overdo it. You don’t want to look like you had a flower explode on you 🙂 Keep it simple, and pair your floral piece with a basic. For example, pair a cute floral top with some skinny jeans or a floral printed kimono with a basic tee (like my outfit in the picture above). Let the floral piece be the staple of your outfit! The dress that I’m wearing in the first picture is from Jessa Kae. They have some SUPER cute floral clothing (I have 3 floral dresses from JessaKae now… oops)  and you can get 10% off of your entire purchase with my code: CHLOE10

Side Note: I have some AMAZING news coming to you this Sunday, April 15th! I’m so excited to share it with you all, I’ve been working on it for a few months now and it’s finally ready for the world! Mark your calendars for this Sunday 🙂

Much love,

Chloe♥

My Spring Playlist

Hey y’all!

Today I just wanted to share with you my playlist for this Spring and Summer. This past week has had a few warm and sunny days, and this weather has really fueled my excitement for the warmer weather. This playlist is sure to be a great start to your spring break! I made this playlist because I recently got a new car (thank goodness) and decided my new car needed some new music. This playlist has some oldies, some chill vibe music, and of course, some Jesus music for that early morning ride to mass. I hope you all love this playlist as much as I do!
