#TRENDING: Burnt Orange Makeup

#TRENDING: Burnt Orange Makeup

Burnt orange everything is trending this fall. Sweaters, shoes, dresses, and even pants! Particularly, burnt orange makeup has been a HUGE trend this fall, and I must admit I am in love with it. I think the burnt orange trend is also perfect for all skin tones and eye colors, which makes me love it even more!

 

One thing I noticed was incredibly difficult is finding a good palette with burnt orange shades. The Nubian Eyeshadow Palette by Juvia’s Place is the one I used to create my look (courtesy of my roommate Claire) and I think the colors in this palette are gorgeous. The palette has four matte colors and eight shimmery shades.

The shadows look good applied both wet and dry, although in this look I have applied them dry. I think they also stay really well (although I did use a primer and setting spray, so if you don’t generally use that, it could be different). I have also linked several other palette options for anyone looking for a little more variety!

I finished off my look with a metallic bronze liquid lipstick from NYX. I am obsessed with this lipstick, it goes on so smooth and stays on for hours. I also feel like in comparison to most liquid lipsticks it is substantially more moisturizing, and since the weather is cooling off that has become a major priority for me.

 

What do you think of the burnt orange makeup trend?

3 Ways to Style a Muscle Tank

3 Ways to Style a Muscle Tank

I found this muscle tank online at Unitiques, a Plato’s closet-esque company where you can browse a multitude of different gently used products. Geared towards college students you can choose to shop with shipping or select the local pickup option. All the products are reasonably priced and you can find anything from Lululemon and Kate Spade to Forever 21 and H&M.

My order arrived quickly and in great condition, with a super cute note from the seller of the item! While a muscle tank may not initially seem like a piece that you can wear all the time, I think it is truly a versatile piece that can fit in many different outfits. Keep reading to learn more on how I styled this graphic muscle tank to fit every occasion.

Ready for the Gym

IMG_2902
The clearest, simplest, and coziest way to style a muscle tank is for the gym! Muscle tanks are the perfect way to show off a super cute new sports bra since they typically have oversized cutouts on the side. Not to mention, due to the loose cut of the fabric, a muscle tank is the perfect top to keep you cool for an outdoor workout.

Or, if you are like me, you may just take this cute sporty look to your 8am and call it a day. Regardless of your plans, this look will keep you comfy all day long.

A Casual Day Out and About

IMG_2907
For this look I paired my muscle tank with a pair of Vintage High-Rise jeans from American Eagle. I absolutely love their denim and the worn in look of this pair. For me this is the perfect look to go from studying in the library to a date at your favorite coffee shop.

This is perfect for the days you want a put together outfit without really having to try. I think printed muscle tanks with cute sayings are best for this style, but a plain one with a pretty lace detailed bralette would work just as well.

Girls Night Out

IMG_2905
This is personally my favorite of the three! First, because going out is always fun, and second, because I am obsessed with these shoes! I absolutely love dressing up t-shirts for going out and other pieces that were not originally intended to fit the look. I chose to pair it with a black bodycon skirt from Topshop to elevate the look for a night out. I added a statement necklace as the finishing touch to polish the outfit for a night out.

Buy Yourself the Flowers

Buy Yourself the Flowers

We have all been there. A few weeks post break-up with our head spinning as to why this whole “moving on” thing seems to be taking so long. I had spent weeks moping, being lazy, and feeling sorry for myself. After a tough break-up, it was time to remember who I was on my own. It was time to let it go.

IMG_2223

This summer was a period of growth for me that I hope to expand on even further. It started with a simple question that seemed to constantly be on my mind. “What do I do with myself?” The problem for me was, I had all these plans in my head for what my summer would have been like with someone. I decided to do something different and carried through with all of those crazy plans I had made in my head, alone.

IMG_2222

Sometimes, someone else is there to pick you up; but sometimes, you buy yourself the flowers. I packed up (rather spontaneously) and headed back home to Kansas City for some much-needed family time and a lot of alone time. That alone time began with a nine-hour drive listening to all my favorite songs and screaming at the top of my lungs (like everyone does, obviously) while I planned all the steps for a perfect summer, alone.

IMG_2221

Those steps included everything from dinner by myself and finding my way around a new city, to planning a five-day beach vacation for me, myself, and I (that I, unfortunately, was unable to take). Along the way, I remembered how much of my time used to be just for me. I realized that dating myself may be the right path to follow.

IMG_2224

Hear me out. You do not need someone to go with you to get coffee. To check out that new dinner place you have been dying to try. To have a luxurious day lounging around, or to bring you home flowers. You can do it all for yourself. No, it doesn’t mean you are lonely or have no friends. It means you can appreciate the solitude of your own presence, and you will wait until you find someone who can do the same.

IMG_2230

So, buy yourself the flowers. Take yourself to dinner. Enjoy dating yourself for a little bit, whether you are dating someone else or not, a little “me-time” never hurt anyone.

What is your favorite way to indulge in a little “me-time?” Let me know in the comments!
