Reworking The Basics + Linkup

Jacket (size small) // top // jeans (similar) // booties (similar-UNDER $40) // hat // purse

It's probably taken all my life to finally understand how good neutrals are. But I get it. FINALLY. You end up with so many more outfits because everything goes together AND you want them in your closet a lot longer than that neon floral printed dress (was that just me?). And you want to know what's better? My flashback look is styling those exact jeans. Don't get me wrong, I still love a good print every now and then. But I know the majority of my closet will be neutrals. While I probably need to retire these booties, I do think this pair would be a great replacement for under $36. Plus, I have them in black.

Now, here's how I styled these white pants last year. There's nothing like an almost all white outfit!

Thank you for linking up with Jessica and I last week! Talk about so many great outfits! This week our picks are Karen from Lady in Violet and Chelsea from Chow Down USA

W3ll People Review

While I haven't been on this green beauty train very long, I have been slowly finding new brands to replace my beloved decade long favorites. This has been going at turtle pace if I'm being real. It's like breaking up with your longtime boyfriend who you wholeheartedly love and nothing is wrong, but you just know it's not going to work in the long run. Too dramatic? Maybe.

BUT after a lot of searching, I've found a brand that I feel really great about. Have you heard of W3ll People? Besides the minimal packaging (complete sucker here), they put equal focus on items being safe, non-toxic AND effective. A lot of concern with natural beauty lines is the fact of it actually going to work. Rest assured, the line is designed by an established makeup artist. It's even won a few Allure Beauty awards. Oh, and you can factor out the price. This line is reasonable ranging from $20-$30.

While I picked up three items (bronzer, universalist multi-stick, and mascara), I have just tried the mascara. It's verified safe in green beauty terms and won an Allure award, so best of both worlds. It's the perfect everyday mascara and will do another post with a full review.

Blanket Cape + Linkup

Cape (it's reversible) // top (only $12) // jeans // booties (comfy low-heel)

In case you might have missed my thank you, I really appreciated all your kind and truly heartfelt words to last weeks post. In many ways, it didn't feel like it was my story, but my sister and mom's. FYI they are doing well. Things aren't over yet. We're getting there.

Now back to my usual spill. I'll be honest, I have no clue what this blanket, cape/poncho is technically called (it's on MAJOR sale for $29). BUT you will get serious compliments. Perhaps they are jealous of how warm and cozy you look. I'll take it. Anyway, it's a purchase I made last year that I wore here before and doesn't look like I'll stop wearing it anytime soon. This look was perfect for an indulgent brunch with waffles. No problem trying to hide any food babies with this cape thing. All about fashion hiding food babies.

Now let's flashback to last year's look here. Grey, plaid and tan still make my heart sing. It's been raining like crazy here, so minus the booties (not rain proof) I think I should re-wear this look asap. But back to the booties. They were recently restocked in this color. I still wear them consistently and you can wear these walking all day. Can you tell I'm all about comfy? 

Thank you so much for linking up with us! Our picks are Kim from Champagneista and Sheela from Sheela Writes! We can't wait to see your posts this week!
