How I Style: an​ Orange Skirt + Lookbook

 

IMG_1509

This beautiful orange skirt is by Victoria Beckham from her VBxTarget brand. I love the fit, the pocket (yes, it’s a real pocket!) and how versatile of this skirt is. The 5 looks I did are all something I would wear to work or to a professional event depending on the setting or if I just want to be over the top lol. Hopefully, you will get some inspiration from these looks.

 

  1. The first outfit, I thought this skirt would look great with a chambray top, in my case a chambray dress. I’ve always wondered how stylish woman pulled this off but I think that I hid the fact that its a dress. What do you think? I added some leopard print flats to give this outfit some fun and paired it with gold and blue accessories.

IMG_1503IMG_1510IMG_1507

2. Yellow and Orange complement each other so well. Because the colors are so bright, I kept the accessories simple and matchy-matchy with the yellow purse and orange/gold bracelets. I added my fitted black blazer because the top is sleeveless and I freeze easily. I also feel like it pulls it together and looks professional. I have 2 different shoe options, my beloved mules (lol I wear them every day!) and a pair of heels.

IMG_1514IMG_1513IMG_1516IMG_1518

3. If you didn’t know, I BLEED ORANGE & BLUE!! GO GATORS 🐊 This is my favorite outfit in this lookbook. I may be a little bias haha. I paired this skirt with this baby tee that I tucked in with a matching cardigan and nude heels to pull the look together. Do I look cool with the cardigan wrapped around my waist?

IMG_1523IMG_1527IMG_1525

4. If you’re not into wearing a lot of colors, this outfit is more “toned down.”  I paired it with all black and my brown snake-print crossbody bag. To me, the crossbody bag really adds to the outfit.

IMG_1531IMG_1529IMG_1532

5. The last outfit, I decided to add this pink knock-off Zara blazer, that I got a long time ago on eBay. I got inspiration for this outfit from Instagram but I can’t remember who it was. Wearing two bright colors together is a bit scary because 1. people are going to stare and think your crazy and 2. you don’t want to look like skittles. I think this outfit works because I separated the skirt and pink blazer with the black top and pumps and I no accessories on so it’s not over the top.

Which look is your favorite 1,2,3,4, or 5? What would you wear with an orange skirt?

Fall Romper

IMG_1484

IMG_1489

Rompers are great for all seasons! Well, maybe not winter. Rompers make great outfits and are easy to put together. They come in long sleeves, bell sleeves or if you have short sleeve rompers you can add on a leather or denim jacket. You can wear tights to keep your legs warm or wear a pair thigh high boots or booties.

With everything that is going on in the world, I just want to remind you to not take anything for granted. I want you to Laugh, Love, Learn, Live and Be KIND! Unfortunately, life isn’t all pizza and ice cream (or whatever your favorite food is) and we are all going through a battle, but remind yourself of all the positive things in your life.

How do you style rompers for Fall?

DesixKaty Dose of Colors Review

IMG_1561

Youtube Beauty Guru Desi Perkins and Katy better know as LustreLux collaborated with Dose of Colors. This was Dose of Colors first collaboration. Desi & Katy are two of my favorite beauty gurus. They are so talented, down to earth, and hilarious. This was my first time ordering from Dose of Colors and I’ve always heard great things about their products.

I thought the process was very simple when ordering, they had a quick add to cart button for each item or the entire collection. There was a glitch with the Eyeshadow palette when customers were trying to click on the page and adding it to the cart, it kept saying sold out. I thought Dose of Colors was well stocked, they didn’t sell out within an hour. Of course, people had shipping problems such as wrong items or broken product and I saw so many people on social media who were so impatient with getting their order. I think that most of us are all spoiled with Amazon’s 2-day shipping and we need to be reminded that shipping takes a while, especially with high volume. We should understand that when thousands of people are ordering at the same time and that company has to mail thousands and thousands of orders, IT TAKES TIME, THINGS HAPPEN! Yes it sucks or it’s disappointing but with these types of collaborations or makeup launches, we have to be aware that there will be hiccups.

ANYWAY, back to the DesixKaty Collection. In the collection, there are 8 items: 1 eyeshadow palette, 2 highlighters, and 5 lip products.

IMG_1563

THE GIRLS:

The Girls eyeshadow palette is so beautiful. Desi and Katy wanted something different that could go with your favorite transitional palette. There are 4 beautiful shimmer/metallic eyeshadows for that extra pop. Each shade is named after both Desi and Katy’s dogs. The eyeshadows are very pigmented, creamy and versatile. It is recommended to apply these shadows with your finger for the best color payoff but I have seen videos of beauty gurus using a brush and the results are amazing! This palette is $28 USD.

IMG_1566IMG_0913IMG_0916        In sunlight                                       

  • Suz- is a bright champagne shade. This formula is to be used WET. Just add a drop of water to your finger or brush when using this. Suz is a great color for an inner corner highlight.
  • Noli- is a beautiful bronze color with gold reflects. I think this is my favorite shade just because I can wear this every day. I’ve literally been putting this on my lid, with nothing else and it looks so good.
  • Turbosan- is a purple, brown base (maybe a hint of red too), with silver shimmer reflects. This eyeshadow is perfect fall, you can pair it with Saváge, which you will see later, or a dark vampy purple or burgundy lipstick.
  • Harpoon- is a metallic cool green base with gold reflects. This formula is to be used WET. This shade screams FALL. When it comes to fall army green is everywhere. This will be great to match the camo sweater of yours.

 

Highlighters:

These highlighters are beautiful! I’ve seen different reviews on beauty bloggers and YouTubers of different skin tones and some say it they love it and it works for their skin tones and others say that it’s too light for them especially Furgo which is the lighter highlighter. I have decided to pass on the highlighters because 1) I’m trying to watch how much money I spend (that I don’t have) and 2) I have 4 highlighters and decided I don’t have to have this lol. If I were to get one I would choose Mírame. The highlighters are $28 USD.

Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 9.28.33 PM

  • Fuego- is a light champagne gold. This shade from what I can it’s more on the yellow gold side. This highlighter would be great for fair to medium skin tones. If you have a deeper skin tone you could use this to intense another highlighter (learned from Jackie Ania).
  • Mírame- is a rose gold highlighter. I think this looks good on all skin tones. If you are of a darker than a medium skin tone this will look amazing on you!

 

Lips:

There are 5 lipsticks: 2 liquid lipsticks, 2 nude classic lipsticks, and a lipgloss. I purchased both liquid lipsticks and plan on buying 2 more items in the restock. The liquid lipsticks are $18 each, the nudes are $16 each, and the lip gloss is $15. Let’s start with liquid lipsticks!

IMG_1568IMG_1550

  • Hot Fire- Is a fiery orange-red liquid lipstick with a velvet matte finish. This liquid lipstick applies smoothly. When the collection dropped this product was the first item I knew I had to have this. Hot Fire is way out of my confront zone! It is a bright orange color on me. I tend to go for darker lipstick shades. However, this color is beautiful. This color will be perfect for Spring/Summer.
  • Saváge- is described as a rich black base burgundy (black cherry) shade with a velvet matte finish. Dose of Colors liquid lipsticks is a “velvety high-fashion matte finish which envelops lips in a rich color.” So basically the finish is a matte but it is shiny like a lipgloss. I absolutely LOVE this lipstick!! This shade screams me! This color will be perfect for Fall/Winter, or if you’re like me every day.

Screen Shot 2017-09-19 at 9.01.00 PM

  • No Shade- is a light peachy nude with a creamy/matte finish. No Shade is great for someone who has a fair complexion and maybe a warm skin tone.
  • More Creamer Please- is a deeper nude with brown/peach undertone. More Creamer Please is great for someone who has medium to deep complexion depending on their preference.
  • Over The Top- Is a clear gloss with gold reflects. This lipgloss can be worn on its own or Over The Top of lipstick! Did you see what I did there?

That is the whole collection! What do you think? If you could only purchase one item, I would highly recommend The Girls Palette. It’s unique, it works great with other eyeshadows, it’s easy to use and blends well. The palette is so versatile, you can do daytime everyday look or a dramatic night look. For the restock I want to buy Over The Top and I am thinking about getting More Creamer Please.

Also, check out my friend Linda’s post from Linda Talks Beauty if you want to know more about the highlighters and other Dose of Color Lipsticks.

The restock for the DesixKaty Collection will be this Sunday 9/24/17 at 6pm PST on doseofcolors.com. Did you get anything from the first launch? Are you wanting to buy something from the restock? Let me know in the comments. If you want to see makeup looks from this collection, check out my Instagram @joniamac_style.

Gingham Lookbook

Oppa Gingham Style! Did you see what I did there, who remembers that song from Psy?Gingham is everywhere! How can it not be its such a great print! You can get Gingham in skirts, dresses, shorts, pants, and all different styles of tops. And most likely it comes in your favorite color. Other than the traditional black and white I’ve seen gingham in navy, red, pink, teal, or yellow to name a few.

IMG_1340IMG_1385IMG_1434IMG_1394

LOOK 1

For this outfit, I wanted to keep it casual and go for that all blue look. Wearing the same color tone is quite popular right now. I added my rose gold shoes mules and gold accessories to complete this look. I think this look is great for running around or when you’re spending time outdoors.

IMG_1344IMG_1342IMG_1336

 

LOOK 2

How cute is this romper?! I love the little peek-a-boo, it gives this romper a sexy feeling. I have to different shoe options for you. The first one is a pair of black mules to make the outfit more casual. Then I added theses hot pink wedges for a playful look. I feel like both of these options are great for a day time look. This would be great for a lunch date or mimosas with the girls. Also, sandals would be a great pair as well. For a night time look, I would wear this romper with a pair of heels. I don’t have Navy heels so I would go for either a black or nude pair of heels. In these pictures, I wore a bra but you can see it peeking through the peek-a-boo (cheater lol). I tend to wear a bra to make it look like I have some boobs but I think for this I will just go braless. This AEO Knot Keyhole Romper is still available in Large and X-Large.

IMG_1384IMG_1387IMG_1383IMG_1388

 

LOOK 3

This is my easy on the go outfit! I am one of those people who gets ready at the last minute, so I need those go to outfits. I basically took the first outfit and switched the skirt for a pair of jeans. I also added this cute Vera Bradley blue and orange bag (Go Gators!) to add a pop of color to this look!

IMG_1431IMG_1433IMG_1437

 

LOOK 4

This is by far my favorite Gingham purchase! I love everything about this dress, the ruffles, the bell sleeves, the cold shoulders and the length is great. The dress is a bit too big but it’s not noticeable. l This is my go to dress for events such as weddings. I can’t wait until it gets a bit cooler, which is in the 80s for Floridians so I can wear this more. I think these cute red lace up sandals add some fun and excitement to the dress. I took the look a bit further and added these shades of pink earrings, I think it adds a great touch. Depending on what type of event I’m going to will depend on how much color I will wear.

IMG_1403IMG_1397IMG_1402 2IMG_1404Also, I love this dress because it makes me want to dance!

 

What are your thoughts on the Gingham trend? Are you obsessed as well? If you are looking for gingham purchase, check out Missguided, Forever 21, H&M, Boohoo just to name a few stores.

July Mini Haul || AE & Macys

I did quite a bit of shopping in July. There was so many Black Friday in July sales, I swear every store had a sale, but I tried to contain myself and not put myself in too much debt. I did buy a few items that I’ve been wanting and was lucky enough to find on sale.

IMG_1382IMG_1384IMG_1385

How fabulous is this romper? I had been eyeing it for a while but I didn’t want to spend full price on it. It wasn’t something I HAD TO HAVE. I love the details of this romper. I love the fact that the gingham is navy and not black, the tie knot and the keyhole in the center. This AEO Knot keyhole Romper is very versatile, you can dress it up with a pair of ankle strap heels, booties or a pair of mules. The AEO romper is currently on sale for $17.98 and is available in sizes L and XL.

IMG_1408IMG_1409IMG_1410IMG_1417

These are Vintage Hi-Rise Jeans in the style Doodle Me Up. I had to order these in a 0 regular from American Eagle, this was the smallest size they had. Usually, I buy my jeans in short and sometimes for a 00 for Hi-Rise. So what I am getting at, is these don’t look or fit me like the model on the page. One Doodle Me Up are cropped on her and way too long on me and the jeans are a little baggy and on the model its a straight, tight fit. But I actually like how they fit me, how they look and feel. They have a more relaxed cool girl vibe, especially with the embroidery, and patch. These jeans are on sale for $30 and are available in several sizes.

IMG_1433IMG_1437

This top is only in XXL but there are 3 other tops to choose from. I love the gingham trend so when I saw this for less than $10 bucks, I had to get. I will have a Gingham lookbook soon! If you are interested in one of these tops, click here.

IMG_1380

I’ve been wanting a Choker T-Shirt since last year and I finally purchased one. The fit is great and this tee is so stylish. You can wear it with anything and feel sexy and cool. This shirt is sold out but they do have it in other prints for $10. If interested, click here.

IMG_1373IMG_1376

How awesome are these AEO Vintage Hi-Rise Festival Shorts, Light Bright Indigo?! These shorts are so comfy and perfect for summer. They are a classic high waisted shorts with a bit of a twist. These are on sale for $30 dollars.

IMG_1422

When mules first hit the fashion streets, I wasn’t a huge fan of them but they have grown on me and now I’m obsessed! So if you use any form of social media, you have seen the Gucci mules. All the fashion bloggers have them. Well, I can’t afford Gucci but I bought a similar pair of them. I purchased these mules during the Macy’s Black Friday in July sale. These STEVEN by Steve Madden Razzi Mules are on sale for $49.43, originally $99 dollars! What a steal!

IMG_1423

When I found these during the Macy’s sale online, I had to get these! I mean for starters they are Rose Gold and Metallic which is a huge trend right now. The BCBGeneration Sabrina Mules in Rose Gold Metallic are currently on sale for $44.43. Both mules are very comfy and versatile. I’ve worn them with jeans, shorts, ankle pants, and a skirt. You can wear them for a casual cool girl look or for a stylish professional look.

Summer Vacation​​: Pigeon Forge, TN.

IMG_1210

IMG_1137

This year vacation, my family and I went back to Pigeon Forge, TN. This was our 5th time back. Usually, we rent out a cabin but this year we brought our RV, along with family friends. We stayed at the KOA which was awesome. It was right next to the strip where everything is at, so we got to everywhere within 5-10 minutes, it was behind the Old Mill area and a park so we were able to walk over there. There was a pool, a general store (where you can get snacks, drinks, they even had souvenirs), a laundry mat, and bikes to rent, wifi, and much more. If you don’t have a camper, they do have cabins you can rent out.

Day 1:

We got there on Saturday afternoon. We set up the camper/campsite, went to dinner and Walmart. Some mornings we would cook and then go out for that dinner or vice versa.

IMG_4241

Day 2:

We walked over to the Old Mill. At the Old Mill, they have shops, restaurants, and the Old Forge Distillery where you can taste samples of moonshine. I am not a big drinker, to begin with, I did try a few flavors, and Moonshine is not for me.

IMG_1144

IMG_1135

For dinner, we went to Applewood Farmhouse (better known as Applebarn). First, the scenery is gorgeous. The food there is so delicious. If you ever visit the Pigeon Forge/ Gatlinburg area this restaurant is a must. If you do take a trip to Applewood make sure you go on a very empty stomach. The restaurant is family style. With every meal is served with complimentary family serving of their Apple Fritters and homemade Apple Butter (the best part), Applewood Julep, a choice of homemade farmhouse soup or salad, and dessert. When you decide which meal you want, you also get a choice of two sides that you share with your group.

IMG_1176IMG_1179IMG_1178IMG_1180IMG_1183IMG_1185IMG_1186IMG_1187IMG_1188

Day 3:

Our group of 9, we all traveled to Gatlinburg. There are so many things to do in Gatlinburg, there are shops, great restaurants, distilleries, attractions such as Ripley’s, white water rafting, enjoying the view on the Sky Lift, and so much more.

IMG_1194IMG_1196IMG_1193 IMG_1189IMG_1204IMG_1202

Day 4:

Was a day of exploring nature. We drove through the Great Smoky Mountains and the view is just breathtaking. We also traveled through part of Cherokee, NC to visit the Mountain Farm Museum and the Oconaluftee River Trail.

IMG_1259IMG_1260IMG_1262IMG_1264IMG_1267IMG_1270IMG_1279IMG_1276IMG_1282

Day 5:

My sister, our friend, and I went to The Island in Pigeon Forge which is a family fun eat, shop, play, and stay. My friend and I decided to get on The Wheel, a cute enclosed Ferris wheel. The Wheel was 200 feet high and it went around 6-8 times, I use to work at the Orlando Eye which is twice its size, I have to say I’ve been spoiled and I was a little judgemental. The ride was nice but it could have been better. We also checked out some of the shops on the strip.

Summer Trend: Lace Top

IMG_1076

Lace is such a huge trend for this Summer. When it comes to lace, you can either be daring by wearing lace items see through or you can be a bit more conservative. The most popular way I’ve been seeing is wearing a lace top or dress with a t-shirt underneath. When I saw this top, I fell in love with it and had to buy it. My favorite part about this lace tank top is, it came with the white cami tee but it’s not attached to each other, it’s two separate pieces.

IMG_1079

You can wear this lace combo in so many ways. With ripped crop jeans, black jeans, high waisted shorts, a maxi skirt.

IMG_1078

IMG_1077

This top is currently on clearance for $13.99. It comes in either Black/White and White/Gray in sizes XXS-XXL. If you’re interested in purchasing this cute top, click here.

From Kids Sizing to Adult Styling

If you don’t know, I am 4’10 on a good and weigh about 90 pounds, depending on what I eat and if I have been exercising. Because I am so petite I tend to buy a lot of my clothing from the kid’s section. I usually shop in Dillards or JC Pennys. If you haven’t been shopping in the children’s section, oh my has it changed since I was a kid. Children’s clothing is very fashionable now.

I purchased these dress within the past couple of years. When it comes to making kid’s size clothing more “adult” and stylish it all comes down to accessories. Whether it’s a belt, highly suggestion because children’s clothing tends to be straight and shapeless. Jewelry – a statement necklace or earrings, a nice watch, and Sunglasses. A hat if you choose to wear one, your purse and the shoes you choose to wear makes all the difference as well.

The first outfit, this is where the belt came in. The belt helps shape the dress and me. I went for a leopard belt to add some fun and separation of the dress. I also decided to carry my medium size snake print cross body bag to add character. I went for nude heels to complete the look, they make me look taller and are neutral with the bright orange dress and printed accessories.

IMG_1007IMG_1009IMG_1005

The Second outfit, again I added a belt to give me body. I this belt came with the dress. Since the belt is brown, I paired brown/tan accessories with the dress. That where the hat, sunglasses, and sandals come in. I decided on these wedge sandals instead of heels because of the chevron print. I feel like this is an outfit you would wear if you plan on being outside for a long period of time.

IMG_1012IMG_1017IMG_1019

The third outfit, I use to wear to work all the time. Even though the dress is color, you can still make it work/corporate appropriated.  I threw on with my blazer and pumps to give the dress a more professional look.

IMG_1023IMG_1026

The fourth outfit, I decided to keep it young and playful by adding sandals. I think this blue crossbody bag goes well with this peachy pink dress.

IMG_1031IMG_1027

 

Do you still shop in the children’s department as an adult? How would you wear these dresses?

Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean Review

Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 9.56.36 PM
I first heard about these from an Instagram Ad and then I saw commercial for these. As I mentioned before, I don’t have a skincare routine. I use skin care products when I feel like I need them. What intrigued me about them, was when I do take off my makeup at night (I’m better about washing it off now) I just use Huggies Baby Wipes.  On days I wear more makeup than my everyday look, I notice the wipes weren’t removing all the makeup. I haven’t heard anything about these from any YouTubers and bloggers that I follow, so I thought I would still go ahead and give it a try. (Since I have purchased these about a  month ago, I have seen two bloggers have sponsor ads about these cleansing cloths.)

Product Info-

The Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths are water activated cloths cleanse. It claims to have the feeling of a $100 spa facial. I have never had a facial before so I can’t say if this is true or not. However, my skin does feel amazing after using the Daily Clean Cloths. These textured cleansing cloths have the benefit of a scrubber, toner, cleanser, and mask to gently exfoliate the skin. It removes dirt, oil, makeup and even mascara. It works 2x better than a basic cleansing, and I totally agree with this statement. The face wipes combine a soap-free lather and active Olay conditioners to leave your skin clean, hydrated and smooth in less than one week. These are perfect for traveling when you are on the go, or for everyday use.  The Daily Facials are recommended for normal skin types. I have dry skin and these work great for me.

How it works-

The 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths are specifically textured, with soft cleansing pockets, to gently loosen up and lift away dirt, oil, and makeup. Your results are smoother skin in less than 1 week.
4-in-1 Formula
1. Cleanser – washes away dirt and make-up
2. Toner – essential cleansing formula tones skin
3. Mask – hydrates with essential Olay conditioners
4. Scrub – exfoliates to smooth skin’s surface

How to use it-

  1. Wet the cloth with water
  2. Rub together for a lather
  3. Cleanse (even around the eyes).
  4. Rinse out (for best results, and use cloth to wipe face)
  5. Throw away (do not flush)
It’s that simple! They suggest completing your routine to use Olay Complete Lotion All Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 for normal skin. I’ve used this moisturizer for years! At least a minimum of 5 years. I don’t use this at night but I do use this every single morning. You can find these pretty much everywhere. At Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Ulta, even Amazon. You can purchase either 33 cloth in a tub, or 33/66 cloths (not in a tub).
Sorry, I didn’t realize I couldn’t upload videos to my blog, with the plan I have. Here is the link! 
I love these cloths! From someone who went from using just Huggies wipes to these cleansing cloths, I can tell a major difference. 1) when I wake up and wash my face, I’m not still removing makeup, 2) I do have dry skin so sometimes the Huggies does dry out my face. After using the Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths, my skin feels smooth, hydrated, and fresh. I can’t wait to see how these hold up in the winter.
Have you tried these? If, so what are your thoughts? What do you use to remove your makeup?

Summer Must Have: Kopari Body Glow

 

I received my Kopari Coconut Body Glow in one of my Bless Boxes, and I am so glad it was in there. I am in love with this body glow! It is the perfect shine, shimmer and glow for that summer bronzed look. When I want to look EXTRA glowy (is this a word?). I put this under my Pro Glow foundation and I use it on my neck and shoulders. I rarely wear shorts so next time I do I’m going to put some on my legs. I was nervous trying this because of the Coconut smell. I’m sensitive to certain smells and I usually don’t like coconut. But the body glow doesn’t bother me. I smell it when I first put it on and I’ll get a whiff of it throughout the day but, it’s not a constant smell.  Kopari Coconut Glow is vegan, sulfate-free, silicone-free, cruelty-free, & paraben-free

IMG_1038

Product Info:

The Coconut Body Glow contains natural pearlescent minerals to illuminate face and body. It hydrates and nourishes your skin but it’s also, lightweight and absorbs fast. It is $42 for a 3.4 oz bottle. (*Mine is not full size, I’m sure this is travel size. 1 oz/ 30 mL) It’s great for your skin if you have dryness, dullness and uneven texture, and have an uneven skin tone. This is from the benefits of Coconut Oil. I have heard the debate of using Coconut Oil for your skin is good for your skin and bad for your skin. They say it can clog your pores and cause breakouts. Most people with acne type skin tend to stay away from coconut oil.

“Since not all coconut oil is created equal, the source and processing greatly affect quality. Kopari’s coconut oil is sustainably sourced from the Philippine Islands and crafted to be ideal for everyone’s beauty routine. All thanks to its lightweight, hypoallergenic, straight-from-the-source purity, creamy texture, quick absorption, and sweet, yet subtle aroma. ” From Sephora.com

How to Use:

You can use this as an all over body glow or add it to lotion for subtle radiance or apply the oil to the cheekbones, collarbones, shoulders, decolletage and brow bones as a luminous highlighter. The way I use the coconut body glow is, I add the oil to my face before foundation, my neck,  collarbones, chest and shoulders with a brush. It up to you if you want to use your fingers to dab it on or a brush. I only use a brush because I tend to make a mess. 🙄

Be sure to shake the product before using for the shimmer. Also, watch the temperature of where you keep this.
