What I Wore: The Clean Start Edition

So, I’ve been MIA a little while. A couple months is a little while, right? Well, I would love to say it was for a good reason, but really it was just because I was elbow deep in moving my blog to a new server. I hope you like the new look! I sure do. It should be easier to navigate and now that I can finally organize, I can focus on more tutorials, more style posts, and more vintage shopping!

Anyway, in honor of my bright, clean, pretty new blog, I thought I would do a clean, white, minimalist outfit post to go along with it. It’s probably going to become a yearly tradition for me to put up a post about wearing white in the summer time, but I will never get tired of it! It will just get more sophisticated in style as I do (or, you know, I will attempt to get more sophisticated in style).

White is definitely my favorite color (non-color?) of the summer. There’s just something so fresh and clean about it when it’s 90 degrees out and you’re all hot and sweating. I had to have this dress when I saw it on the rack because it not only have a fun deep plunge, but also a slit in the back and POCKETS! I can never pass up a dress with pockets. You don’t realize how handy they are until you start wearing dresses all the time and you have no where to put your things. So, obviously, this dress was perfect!

Okay, let’s talk about my lipstick for 2 seconds. I am in love. I never really talk about beauty on here, even though it is a huge part of fashion, because I suck at it. No joke. I’m terrible. Do my hair? You’ve got to be kidding. BB Cream? Is that something you put on babies? I have no idea what I’m doing, ever. SO, I took the plunge and signed up for Birchbox, because $10 a month is not a ton for someone who gets months of use out of a sample. Seriously, I signed up in January and I just threw away my first sample tube. When you only do you hair once or twice a week or wear make-up every other day, you can really make them last.

The best thing about it though is I’m discovering new products and ways to use them, so it’s been really fun! Like this long last lipstick from Stilla. OBSESSED. I can’t even tell you. I went and bought every color they offer because it’s amazing. It’s super bright, stays on perfect, and isn’t overly dry. Miracle product. Also, I’m realizing that not all cosmetics are made equally, which has been life changing as well. I never really understood the magic of dry shampoo until I tried one that wasn’t $3 a can. Whelp.
