Olive + White

TOP: White House Black Market c/o | PANTS: White House Black Market c/o (on sale!!) | HEELS: Cynthia Vincent | BAG: Valentino | EARRINGS: J.Crew | WATCH: Michael Kors | SUNGLASSES: Prada | BRACELETS: David Yurman, Alex & Ani | JACKET: White House Black Market c/o | RINGS: Kendra Scott, BaubleBar (also here)|  LIPS: YSL #29

I am currently LOVING anything olive green/military green! The color really goes with so much - browns, blacks, neutrals, etc. which makes it so easy to wear & style. These pants w/the zipper detail from WHBM are seriously to-die-for.. the ankle length is actually my favorite & of course I love the zipper detailing. Not to mention, they are very flattering. I think John complimented me like 3x yesterday afternoon when I was wearing them! They are the type of pants you can wear on a variety of occasions- dressing them up or even just wearing them for travels since they are super comfy.  It was a pretty hot day so I paired them w/this off the shoulder, light top from WHBM which was a perfect match.. and since we were heading out for dinner I brought along this moto jacket, and I won't lie - the jacket is my favorite part out of the entire outfit. (I'm notorious for being cold at restaurants.) 

Hope you all are having a good week so far! Thank you for reading..xo

Summer Staple: Hot Pink Shift Dress

Laid Back July 4th Outfit

TEE: Madewell (sz small) | DENIM: old (similar style here & here) | BLUE CHECKED TOP: Rails (softest button-down ever!) | FLATS: Topshop | RAINBOOTS: Hunter | BAG: Louis Vuitton (similar) | RING: Baublebar (also here) | BRACELETS: Alex & Ani, David Yurman (+here) | WATCH: Michael Kors | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban | LIPS: So Chaud

I own way too many white tees, John jokes about my collection and how ridiculous it is. I love a great white tee and these Madewell ones are a favorite of mine. Since John has a crazy schedule we won't be doing a lot for the holiday weekend so I will for sure be sporting red, white, & blue in a casual, laid-back way.  The red flats I am wearing above were a lucky find it seemed like... they are a dupe for these Aquazurra flats that I had been eyeing for awhile which are $675. We are supposed to be getting storms over the weekend so I may have to wear my favorite rain boots!

Over the weekend, John had Saturday off which was really nice. One his days off, I really don't spend much time getting ready since I try to soak up as much time w/him as I can so I decided to wear double fishtails braids, which lasted a good 10 minutes and the wind took them out. (Just in case you are wondering why my hair looks like a hot mess.) I'm rambling about everything this morning.. but I also had to share this- I got my eyebrows threaded for the first time yesterday. Friday night at the resident get-together, all of the girls were telling me that they only get their eyebrows threaded so Sunday a group of us went. For some reason I pictured this to take like an hour and cost like $50.. instead it took like 2 minutes and cost $8! I was fascinated because it turned out so well and went by so quickly, I'll definitely do it again. Have any of you tried it?

Mornings with Buxom Cosmetics

 Today I am teaming up with Buxom Cosmetics to share how I use their new customizable eye shadow palettes! First of all, it is really, really cool - they have 40 shades available - all different colors, all of which are super pigmented & rich in color. When you buy an empty palette, you can select six shades to pop in! I usually use 3 shades on a daily basis, so I like that I can pop in other colors in case I want to switch things up from day to night. (i.e. I use the other 3 shades for nighttime!) Also, if you don't want to create your own palette, they have 3 pre-made palettes that you can use!

The shades are actually made with a built-in primer (also called primer infused), meaning I get to skip a step and not have to apply any eyeshade primer. I literally HAVE to use primer since I have oily skin & don't like creasing! With the Buxom shadows, you don't need any primer because they've covered that for us. ;)

Anyway, I will share a few photos of how I use my palette for day-to-day use! (Don't mind my messy hair - I always do my makeup before I do my hair soooooo.. and PS. Fitz was photobombing a lot of these photos.)
 1. Transition shade - is a light brown. I just sweep it loosely across the crease area.
2. Crease Shade - is a dark brown. I literally only put this in the crease with a small, tapered brush.
3. Lid Shade: I love gold or glitter or white for my lid! I used the bronze, glittery shade for my lid. 

And to make it all blend, I go back to the brush I used in Step #1, and sweep it back & forth across the crease area which blends it all out. (I don't pick up any product though before I do this - it is ok if there is leftover product on the brush.)

 (I used their True Nude Lip Foundation & this plumping gloss and I LOVE!!!!)

The next 2 photos are showing how I pop in a new shade if I want to change up my palette! It's super easy.

^^ Those are the True Nude Lip Foundations that I like!

Summery Hot Pink


 TOP: Shopbellac | SHORTS: DL1961 | SANDALS: Steve Madden | NECKLACE: Monogram (3XL) | CLUTCH: ASOS (similar here) | EARRINGS: BaubleBar | WATCH: Michael Kors | BRACELETS: David Yurman 

This tank top has been getting ton of wearing lately - because it is my favorite color & its been perfect for the Tulsa heat. Yesterday, John and I spent the day together running errands and every time we walked into a store I had someone ask where it was from! Size wise, mine is a medium and I wish I had gotten a small - so I will say it is true to size since I usually buy a small in tops! Oh and my white boyfriend shorts are a favorite - boyfriend shorts are the comfiest thing ever for summer!

Tonight John and I are headed to a cookout / get together for the new intern/residents. I can't believe it has a been a year since we moved to Tulsa & started residency! Everyone warned me that residency was going to be so terrible, especially intern year, and to my surprise it wasn't so bad. Sure, there have been some rough months/times, but I can't say it has been as bad as everyone says. I think getting Fitz made a huge difference, living with family 2 hours away, & my busy schedule have really helped make it bearable. As for John, he loves what he is doing and is so passionate about caring for others that his long hours don't seem as long to him as they do to me, so for him it hasn't been so bad either. (That, or he just isn't a complainer, I wish I could be more like him!) I think the bad part for him is working a 14 hour day and then shooting these photos, lol! He's a gem, I really don't know how I got him. 

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend and try to stay cool!
