Annnd just like that it was June. Seriously, this year is going by so quickly. This month, my mom finishes out her final school year, Kendall comes home from training, and we get our engagement photos taken. It’s also Father’s Day and I’m going with my two local bridesmaids to pick out their dresses in person. Like I said on Saturday’s post, I’m not shopping this month. But a girl can still look!

the carolove june wish list

 

  1. I really will end up with this 3/4 Sleeve Tiered Gingham Tent Dress.
  2. Ditto the Checkered Ruffle Sleeve Keyhole Tie Back Smock Dress. For someone who used to hate gingham I love it now!
  3. I seriously love all things Tees And Tank You, but their Covfefe Shirt is cracking me up. I usually don’t try to get too political, but I think this lighthearted design kind of let’s me prove the point that I want to make.
  4. Never one to shy away from a great novelty bag, I’m obsessing over this Milk Box Cross-body Bag…
  5. … and this Tape Shaped Shoulder Bag. Note that both are under $30 because I’m over buying tiny bags for crazy prices. Looking at you Kate Spade!
  6. I know what I just said… but I can’t get over this Kitsch Strawberry Candy Crossbody.
  7. Like, I’m sure, many of you, my first perfume was Love’s Baby Soft Cologne Mist. With my allergies acting a mess, I’m thinking about going for this like scent for the summer!
  8. It’s great that at first glance these Betsey Johnson Boom Sneakers are just plan white sneakers then PEEK-A-BOO!
  9. Wishing I could apply for the job on this Women’s Wildfox Part Time Destructed Tee on LinkedIn.
  10. It’s official- mason jars are out and Light Bulb Novelty Drinking Glasses are in!
  11. I guess I kind of missed the sheet mask craze because the new guy in town is the Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask! This one I have to try.
  12. There’s this one Juicy dress I’ve had since college that I’m about worn into the ground. It’s still in great shape and somehow fits, but I love this Daisy Tile Ruffle Sleeve Dress as an alternative!

I have  decided that I’m going to try something new- one month where I’m allowed to shop then one month where I’m not. I’m going to attempt that for about a year, and after kind of enjoying my Lent of no shopping I think I can do it. I haven’t decided yet if wedding stuff counts, but it certainly does mean that I can’t just clickclickclick whatever I want into my cart, you know?

Annnnyway– June is officially OFF, but I wanted to gather some of the fun things I’ve been eyeing on SheIn.

I discovered SheIn a couple of years ago, and honestly there have been a few huge hits… and some abysmal misses. While I immediately donated a couple things, one of my favorite work dresses. for example, came from the international fast fashion powerhouse.  What I’ve learned about fast fashion is this: be more critical that you even think you need to be. Read the reviews. Scrutinize the size charts. Know that the quality probably won’t be the best.

But for the prices- sure! Go ahead and try that trend. Rock that dupe. Getcha self a little something for that vacation (but just make sure you give yourself enough time for that order to come in.)

Some posts featuring SheIn pieces that I love:

We’ve all had that moment where we’ve seen a photograph – or series of snaps – of a celebrity or style icon and gently gritted our teeth in envy. It’s not fair, we say to ourselves. It’s not fair that they can afford to have killer wardrobes and the funds to be locked in a permanent state of super-coolness, their style just oozing awesomeness. But, if you look closely, their enviable style isn’t the result of the clothes they wear but the little tweaks they make to their clothes. That is how they make even the most bog-standard and basic outfits look incredibly fashionable and undeniably chic.

More often than not, what separates the cool from the every day is a person’s ability to pull together an outfit that you would have never considered. They bring things together to create a style masterpiece. They have an eye for knowing what little things can create the freshest of looks. They know how to recycle old clothes in such a way that they make them look like straight-off-the-rack items.

It isn’t about having the funds to buy the most expensive brands, or about having a stylist that is qualified in bringing cool to the front of everything you wear. No. It is just knowing some of the best tips, tricks and hacks to reinventing yourself and making even your most bland outfits the epitome of cool. And here are the best of the bunch:

American Rag Sunkissed Knot-Front Graphic T-Shirt, Only at Macy’s

It Is Knot Impossible

We all have a plaid shirt in our closet, one that we bought ages ago because we saw some celeb looking like a total babe in one. But when we wore it, well, it sort of didn’t work out quite as we wanted to. It made us look frumpy. It gave us curves where there shouldn’t be curves. That’s the point. That’s where tying a knot in the middle of a plaid shirt, or any button-up shirt, will work to maximum effect; it accentuates your gorgeous curves by being pulled in at the waist. Don’t worry, tying a knot doesn’t have to mean showing skin because you could wear a semi-turtleneck shirt underneath to make your style more chic and less country lass. Pair it with a midi skirt and you are going to look wow.

Blank Denim Lost & Found Cuffed Jeans

Rolling In The Deep

When we buy a pair of jeans we do so with real caution. They need to fit perfectly. They need to do the job we want them to do, whether they are skinny, baggy, mom or boyfriend jeans. They are designed to look great as is. But the thing with jeans is, they are our most staple fashion diet, which is where rolling the cuffs up a bit can change your look entirely. Show off your ankles, maybe even get a piece of ankle jewellery. This simple hack has the power to freshen up every outfit, even that one you have worn one thousand times before. What’s more, this will accentuate the gorgeous pair of shoes you are wearing. In terms of how wide you make the cuff, that all depends on the cut. But as a general rule, skinny jeans should have a folded cuff and baggy jeans should have a rolled cuff. Distinctions make a difference.

Accessorizing Is All Killer

Everyday outfits are simple. They should be too. It is all about chucking something on quickly so that you can get out of the house and go and do whatever it is that you need to do. Even if you have a lunch date your outfit should be far more closely aligned to casual than made up. That’s where simple accessorising becomes your best friend because it takes away the casual feeling and makes it a killer outfit in the coolest of ways. Buying a set of gold hoop earrings is always a great move to make, as is a stunning pendant necklace, one that hangs low, or a set of bangles. But it isn’t all about jewellery. An eye-grabbing pair of shoes can work wonders, as can a clutch bag, one that completely clashes with your outfit, one that acts as a focal point. It could be that you are going out in a white tee and a pair of boyfriend jeans with some converse; why not make this pop with a bright clutch.

Lucky Brand – Turquoise Stack Ring II Ring

Be A Lot More Hands-On

When it comes to your hands, and more specifically your fingers, more is better. Seriously, wearing a ring is nice, really nice, but wearing nine rings is seriously cool and seriously chic. Stacking your rings is such an effective way to mix and match different styles of rings, different shapes and sizes. Just like with real estate, it is all about location, location, location. As a general rule of thumb (excuse the pun), but wear your biggest and boldest ring on your index finger and then start stacking rings across your other fingers making great use of mid-size rings. It is a sure fire way to make the high street your catwalk and gain an audience of admiring whispers.

Trusty Charm Socks

Always Put A Sock In It

For some reason, we are all worried about having our socks showing, but socks are a part of an outfit, socks are an extra edge, socks are something to be proud of. So, please, don’t hide your socks next time you are leaving the house. Let’s say you are wearing a pair of ankle boots and a nice thigh length skirt, a wavy one; you probably look incredible. But what will make you look truly wow while still looking casual, like you just left the house looking absolutely perfect without even trying, is scrunching your socks up? It’s hard to say exactly how much sock should be showing face above your boot because we all have different length legs. But there is a golden rule circulating among fashion bloggers and this is it: one-quarter of your lower leg should be covered. So pull up, then scrunch down, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors.

I don’t know about other engaged/ married ladies, but when Kendall popped the question, I wanted to tell the world. And I did. We got lucky in that our proposal was actually taped by a WTK band member/ YouTuber, so it’s immortalized on the ‘tube FOR-EV-ER (and it’s been viewed over 46k times!) besides being on my blog. I could talk wedding all day long, and I’ve actually apologized to my friends and family for being super lame insanely excited  about my engagement and they’ve all told me the same thing: it’s my time. And you know what? After all the weddings I’ve attended and been init is.

While I didn’t even consider flashing my ring all over social media the minute I got engaged, it is an absolutely stunning symbol of my my and Kendall’s new life together. He picked it just for me and it’s basically a combo of every ring I’ve ever loved. I also, pretty much immediately, picked up the Bride trucker hat I wore to the Barbie brunch last weekend. I just kind of want to shout it from the rooftops that I’m taken- by the most amazing guy on the planet. I am truly lucky that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Incidentally, today is my birthday! And I couldn’t ask for a better gift than all the love I’ve received this year from both him and everyone else in my life. Thank you to everyone who has made 27 my best year. 28 will only be better because I get to marry the love of my life!

Up until last year, I was a total princess brat about my birthday. With my Year Of Weddings, I just didn’t have the energy and I tried to skip it all together. Even so, I ended up with a low-key bottomless pizza brunch with some of my closest pals and a v silly trip to Mission and Mad Hatter.

It’s no secret that I have a deep and unending love for Mission’s happy hour. Since my birthday is the day before St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to go grab a drink there on the 17th to celebrate. A couple pitchers and a chorizo quesadilla later, we thought it would be brilliant to head down the block and split a Mad Hatter hat full o’ alcohol. I ended up wishing everyone a very happy Patrick De Queso and now I want to make it a tradition to head to my favorite Mexican spot on/ around my birthday/ St. Patrick’s Day. Makes sense, huh? Whatever.

This year, Mission and I are sharing a birthday party on the 16th. I’ll be working all day because it’s, like, on a Thursday, so no uber-cute St. Patrick’s Day gear for me. But if you’re doing something fun that weekend you probably need a fun top or a little something green so you don’t get pinched.
