FASHION
LiveFashionAble ‘Tadesse’ Bucket Bag. This bag as been a catch all bag for me this month. It seems small, but once you start packing, it just holds so much! Plus, I really like the black color!

JEWELRY
Madewell Hoop earrings (similar).
I’ve had these for 4+ years and I just recently started wearing them again! I wuv them!!! I’ve always love the way hoop earrings look. They’re such a classic!

BEAUTY
Essie ‘Master Plan‘ nail polish.
I adore this nail polish. I wear it when I want a neutral color on and this does the trick! Wore it for a photoshoot this month, and it was wonderful.
L’oreal ‘butterfly kisses‘ nail polish. This is the best spring time nail color. I wore it for Easter, and I couldn’t have been happier! I currently have it on my tootsies : )
Revlon Ultra HD matte lip color ‘flirtation. I feel as if I’ve talked so much about this lip color, but i can’t help it. I reallu enjoy wearing it!
Marc Jacobs Fineliner ultra skinny gel eye crayon. This stuff is uhhh-mazing!!! I think it’s for your tightline, but I’m not totally sure. I just know it’s incredible and the staying power is worth mentioning.
Herban Cowboy ‘Dusk‘ Cologne. I love a good mainly scented cologne that i can pair with florally scents, that normally wear by itself. I constantly get asked what perfume I have on!
Nest ‘Indigo‘ perfume. And this just so happens to be the florally scent. But paired together with DUSK, it’s amazing!

FOOD
Organic Strawberries
Chia seeds
Late July Sriracha Fresca Tortilla chips. These chips are amazing! I feel as if I’m eating doritos, just minus the GMOs and gluten. I wish I could buy a boat load of them!
Allegro blended espresso. I only tried it once, but I’m fairly sure, I will be ordering again. It’s from Wholefoods at the coffee bar, you can choose whatever milk you want(I chose half & half), and I added mocha syrup in it aswell.
Sonic Ice Tea. I live in the south, ice tea is a must! And with sonic ice, it just makes tea better!

MEDIA
• ‘Medicine‘ – A dance film. Ugh, the choreography is amazing in this video. You need to watch. It’s so beautiful, if only I could dance like this! 😍😍😍
The TV show Ed. This show is not to be confused with Mister Ed. This has Elizabeth Banks and Tom Cavenaugh as the main characters. A lot like the Gilmore girls humor.
Gilmore Girls reruns. I love Gilmore girls! I’ve been watching from start to finish on the UP channel. And i am thoroughly enjoying it.

Tell me, what were some of your favorites from March?!

Adore Me’s Lingerie Contest

image

When talking about fashion + style, who wants to talk about bras, lingerie and undergarments?! Well, me, I do! As I am a wardrobe stylist. I’m not too keen on telling my clients to get better undergarments though, even if I know they dreadfully need it! So, I have to make myself! But having a well fitting bra/lingerie can pretty much be the best thing ever, outfit wise! Seriously, what’s better than having perky boobs? And better posture. And you appear thinner. and an all around a better stature. Count me in. But unfortunately, women don’t always take time finding/fitting bras into consideration, when shopping, even if it makes you look and feel your sexiest + best! And makes your outfit look better than if you had an old saggy bra.

Adore Me is currently running a giveaway until Friday, April 15th. I was contacted to enter. I think you should too! You could win 2 sets of lingerie, all you have to do is photograph a flat-lay of your favorite outfit. Complete with accessories, shoes, basically anything you love to pair with your outfits!

A + M inspiration…

Y’all, I just want my house to look like it all came from anthropologie and my wardrobe to look as if it came from Madewell… That’s all.

I went thrifting with a friend of mine yesterday, which I had the loveliest time… And I could definitely see a vision of what I want my home/wardrobe to look like. I know that I don’t have to have it come from both anthropologie + Madewell. As my friend bought a few pieces that I could have totally bought, but didn’t have same at the moment…

But I just want my thinks to look as if they came from Madewell or anthropologie… I see the vision…

image

It just has to resemble them. Sure, I may splurge on a few things from each store, but then I may buy bigger pieces from second hand stores, craft stores, Target, Walmart, even Tj maxx type places for homeware. I love mid century modern, baroque, floral, stripes, muted, coral + gold/green colors, cozy, fun, etc type of things. I pretty much love eclectic. And reupholstery, repainting and repurposing can go far when mastering your home to look like anthropologie… But totally doable.

image

And for clothing, I like all of Madewell’s style. I like the button down shirts, the scarves, the hats, the cool girl chic and sometimes quirky vibe, the muted/vibrant colors. I love it all. If people ask me what style I tend to go towards, I always tell them Madewell. However, I do know my body shape is much different than the girls in the Madewell catalog, I seem to think that’s a good thing. And that all shapes and sizes should be able to shop there. I just love me some Madewell. And the awesome thing is, old navy, H&M, Target, and thrift stores carry A LOT of Madewell style clothing(also, if you’re into sewing apparel, this is a great way to achieve a Madewell style, just saying!)… Which helps your wallet while maintaining a Madewell style.

I just had to get that off my chest and share some inspiration with you…
Hope you enjoy! -Ryn

What I bought in January…

image

I didn’t buy as much as I thought but I’m loving the color palette here in this photo… It’s very springy… I did have my eye on some jeans from OldNavy…But I may buy them in February or March, you’ll find out soon, I’m sure. I do like buying necessities. And necessities, such as pants are always a good thing! But for now, these things in the photo are what’s being highlighted! So enjoy!

• I wuv this sweater. I’ve been wearing this constantly! All day, e’ry day!

• OldNavy floral PJ pants. These pants are adorable. They were on clearance, so I’m not entirely sure you can still find them, but if you can, then GREAT!

• Madewell D’Orsay flats it black and white snake skin. I bought these off poshmark, and I thought they were cuter in the pics. I may end up selling them back on poshmark… How unfortunate.

• OldNavy striped boyfriend tee. This tee is so comfortable!!! I could stand for it to be a little longer in length. But I still really like it. Its slouchy and cute.

• OldNavy Coral Tencel midi length. I haven’t actually worn this skirt yet… But I think I’ll pair it with a white button down and boots…

• Caramel color ribbing from Fabric.Com. This ribbing is for some fabric I bought in Canada. I wanted to make a cute sweatshirt with it, but I couldn’t find ribbing that would match, and I just happened upon a very close match, which now has prompted me to finish that said sweatshirt! Yay!

• Target Dollar Spot pocket calendar. I needed a smaller calendar to carry. I have a big daddy calendar for home/office use, but needed a smaller version to store in my bag just in case I need it…

• Madewell x Vans suede taupe slip-on shoes. These are already my favorite! Spoiler alert, these will be featured in February’s favorites… They’re super comfy and super cute!

I hope you enjoyed this haul, as I’ll enjoy putting each piece to good use!
