Calypso St. Barth for Target

Target has paired up with some amazing designers to bring all of us budget conscious fashionistas a taste of luxury at an affordable price, and I am particularly excited about their newest collaboration with Calypso St. Barth. Known for their resort wear and beach inspired looks, it is the perfect brand to bring to Target for summer. The collection will include women and girls clothing, shoes, jewelry, and handbags, as well as home furnishings. Items will range from $1.99 to $79.99 and are available in Target stores and online at May 1.  Take a look at some of my favorite looks from the collection and be ready to snatch them up this Sunday, I have a feeling this collection will go quickly.

Summer Beauty Regimen

With the summer heat headed our way it is time to simplify my beauty routine. Personally I love having a less "make-up-y" look and a more natural glow during the summer months, not only because I get to sleep in a little longer, but because my skin always feels so healthy without so much makeup covering it up. It is so important to wear sunscreen, and one of my favorite ways to start my beauty regimen is with some tinted moisturizer with SPF, it's like three steps in one! To give my face some definition I like to sweep on blush or bronzer on the apple of my cheeks. Finally I line my eyes and add a little mascara and I'm ready to go!

Splurge VS. Steal - Resort Vacation

Going to a tropical destination and want to look glam? Here are two outfit options that are sure to have you looking like a celebrity by the pool or beach. The first outfit is a splurge totalling $2,317, while the other outfit is a steal at $380. Both are equally chic, so it is up to you, splurge? or steal?

Tie Dye-Tastic!

When I think of tie dye I used to think of ratty old t-shirts with Jerry Garcia's face on them, but now tie dye has a whole new image and I am LOVING it. Tie dye is back and better then ever with a new, more sophisticated look. When shopping for tie dye look for pieces that are only in one color and if there are multiple colors make sure they are in the same pallet, aka no rainbow tie dye, and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Try a tie dye t-shirt with jean shorts or a tie dye maxi dress with simple sandals and moderate accessories. Here are some of my favorite items to try.
