Bodysuit? Check. Cropped flares? Check. Choker? Check. Yup, I think I just about covered every major trend this fall! Not bad for getting everything in one outfit, huh? Ok, so here’s the deal with bodysuits. It took me a long time to get on board. I’m 4′ 11″ with a very short torso, which doesn’t sound like I’d be the ideal candidate for a bodysuit. But this surprisingly works. Want to know how to style a bodysuit for petites? The secret is high-rise denim!

High-rise denim gives off the appearance of a longer torso, which in my case, I need all the torso lengthening I can get. These cropped flares are high-waisted so they cinch at the waist instead of the hips like most low-rise styles making it perfect to wear with skin-tight bodysuits. And this lace-up style is not only affordable, but flatters surprisingly well. I don’t even have to wear a bra with it! Although, I did wear these underneath for extra coverage (a total lifesaver, by the  way). I purchased this bodysuit on a whim and am so glad I did. For those of you who don’t regularly shop at Boohoo, you’re missing the party. Their selection of clothing is crazy affordable for even the lowest of budgets and they constantly run sales for 40-50% off. I actually bought this bodysuit during one of their flash sales for a whopping $13!! What?!

So remember, high-waisted bottoms – jeans, skirts, pants, etc. – are the secret to this flattering, curve-hugging style. Especially for my fellow petite ladies!

Must-Have Sweaters For Fall

Blush Sweater  •  Black V-Neck Sweater  •  Bell Sleeve Sweater  •  Turtleneck Sweater

Ah, so many sweaters. I think I speak for every woman when I say sweaters are the best thing about fall (not PSLs). Cozy, soft and oh-so-chic sweater styles are quickly making their way into my shopping carts. But with so many sweaters available, what are the best styles for fall? These are my must-have sweater picks for fall that every woman needs in her closet this season.

The blush sweater is probably one of the most popular styles this year and shockingly, I’m ok with it! I love the vintage vibe of this rosy-hued sweater and it couldn’t be more perfect for fall. Pair with high-waisted denim for the ultimate street-style look.

You really can never go wrong with black sweaters for fall and this textured v-neck style worn with a classic pair of leather skinnies is pure perfection.

Oh the drama! I love a good bell sleeve and the sleeves on this Free People sweater is good. I love v-neck styles like this when it isn’t quite cold enough to bundle up, but you still want that cozy feeling. This sweater is definitely one of my favorites this season.

Turtleneck sweaters aren’t always my favorite (I’m not a fan of anything tight around my neck), but this style is loose enough without bunching up at the neck and it is oh-so-soft. Talk about cozy! The struggle is real to not wear this sweater every day. It’s that comfortable.

What sweaters do you have your eye on?

 Ah fall. I’ve never really been able to experience a true fall because I spent most of my life in Southern California (it’s pretty much summer all year) and then the last few years in Dallas, where it stays hot until November. So fall is a bit of a foreign concept to me. The silver lining to this? I get to keep wearing summer dresses! This red embroidered boho dress is a personal favorite and I love how easy it is to throw on (literally). The sleeves on this dress are beautifully embroidered and the flowy fit makes it so easy to wear.

Although I love this style of boho dresses with sandals or slides, this dress would be perfect with a pair of booties. This chic black heeled booties would be perfect, or even this suede pointed style to complete the boho look! Either way, you can’t go wrong.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

How to Get Glowing Skin in 3 Easy Steps with Onomie Beauty

Onomie Beauty

I first fell in love with Onomie Beauty at the beginning of the year after seeing someone post about them on Instagram. I was initially drawn to the chic packaging but was truly sold once I landed on their website. These products are so much more than good packaging.


This really is makeup that’s good for your skin and these products have quickly become my go-to for that “no makeup” makeup look. When I first heard about Onomie they only had two products but have since added a third that I’m truly hooked on.

All three of the Onomie products give a youthful, lit from within, eight hours of sleep every night kind of effect. And let’s face it, with my lack of sleep I need all the help I can get.


The Powerful Priming Serum, the newest member of the Onomie family, is one of my favorite products to instantly give my face a radiant glow. I tend to use this on it’s own, but I also love it under foundation. It corrects like a serum and actually improves skin tone evenness, pore size, and overall skin radiance. And the results are almost immediate. How’s that for a primer?

I’m a bit of a concealer junkie with a Pokémon attitude – gotta catch em all! I love concealers and it’s the one product that makes me feel like I look alive. The problem is most concealers are thick, cake-y and give off an obvious “I’m wearing makeup” appearance. So for those days where I just want a little coverage on my under eye circles (read how to treat those here), the Bright Concealing Elixir comes in handy.

This concealer has amazing coverage and blends like a dream. You only need a small amount to cover dark circles or under-eye shadows and it instantly makes you look more awake. The Bright Concealing Elixir is so easy to blend you can apply it quickly with your fingers, but I prefer to blend it out with a damp beauty blender to really get the product to melt into my skin. No trace of cake-y concealer here!

The final step for glowing skin, and the third product from the Onomie product line, is the A.C.E Illuminating Eye Treatment. I prefer the Lovelace shade for a pearlescent glow. It immediately brightens up my face and gives off the perfect subtle glow. Like a highlighter without the obvious sheen.

See the image below showing how these three products can instantly lift and brighten the face. Yup! That’s it! Just the Powerful Priming Serum, Bright Concealing Elixir and A.C.E. Illuminating Eye Treatment (along with a little mascara, of course) for a quick, glowing “natural” face. The difference is subtle, but definitely noticeable. I’ve also included a video sharing my application process and how easy it is to get glowing skin without slapping on a ton of product.

The Best Under-Eye Creams For Dark Circles

Click to shop!


As I get older, my problem area continues to be my dark under-eye circles. I like to burn the midnight oil, so it’s rare if I get a full eight hours of sleep, or five hours for that matter. I’ve tried a ton of products and while all of them claim to make your under-eye circles vanish, most of them fall short of their promises.

According to a recent article in Redbook magazine, there are three main types of dark under-eye circles and knowing what kind you have can help determine the right products for you and what will actually be effective. I’ve rounded up five of my favorite under-eye creams that each contain key ingredients to help these types of dark circles.


This is the most common type of under-eye circles and is caused by aging or significant weight loss. Volume loss means the skin around your eyes appear sunken, causing shadows around your eyes. As we age, we actually lose fat in our faces. So whether it be age or weight loss, light will hit the face differently causing shadows that look like dark circles. Products with ingredients that plump the skin will help reduce the appearance of shadows. Estēe Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream is clinically proven to leave your entire under-eye area “cushioned and comfortable” leaving skin looking youthful and vibrant. MAC Fast Response Eye Cream is also a great product to get quick, similar results. The caffeinated cream erases the look of dark circles and soothes and softens the skin around the eye.


Paper-thin skin or excess melanin is another type of under-eye circle that appears red or violet on fair skin and brownish on darker skin. The simple answer for the cause of this is genetics. And while that may sound like there’s no hope to fix this type of under-eye circle, there are products available that will help. An eye cream with with retinol can help boost collagen production to thicken skin, making dark circles less noticeable. Verso Skincare Super Eye Serum is formulated with retinol 8, a stabilized vitamin A complex, which is eight times more effective than standard retinol in the same dosage. According to the brand, “It supports the skin’s natural collagen while reversing the visible signs of aging.”


For those of you who find themselves constantly touching their face, this could be you. You could also have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation if your under-eye circles are brown or if you’re congested. It’s caused by skin trauma, usually from aggressive rubbing that could be due to allergies, dry eye or a bad habit. This eventually turns into chronic inflammation. So leave those eyes alone! Products that stimulate new collagen can help with this issue. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Cream has vitamin C, copper and blue algae peptides that have tons of anti-aging benefits. Hydrolyzed collagen, essential oils and caffeine nourish and firm the delicate area to make up for any aggressive tugging that may have occurred. The Joanna Vargas Revitalizing Eye Cream (a personal favorite!) is also a great product to help with this issue. The product’s key ingredient Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 is a well known hydroscopic moisturizer that helps reduce puffiness, improves skin’s elasticity as well as overall smoothness. I swear by this product before I put on my makeup to prevent my concealer from creasing. It also helps brightens the under-eye area so I don’t have to use nearly as much concealer.
