Tips For Wearing A Band Tee

Tips For Wearing A Band Tee

Shirt: Target | Denim: Levi’s (with DIY cut hem) | Jacket: J. Crew Factory | Shoes: J. Crew Factory | Bag: Old Navy | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Rocker tees are making a comeback in a really good way! There are so many fun styles to choose from at really affordable prices. Today I showing you how I incorporated this vintage style Johnny Cash tee into my wardrobe for fall. As with any new trend, its all about how you work it into your personal style.  It’s simple. Just switch out your basic tee for this edgier alternative.

Rocker tees are such an easy trend for anyone to wear. They’re also a great way to show some love for your favorite band. Here are a few tips for wearing a band tee…

Tips for Wearing A Band Tee

Go Vintage

Go for a vintage style t-shirt. If you’ve been following me for a while you know I adore ANYTHING vintage. If you can get your hands on an authentic band tee from back in the day – props to you. If not, there are plenty of vintage inspired tees available for you to choose from (see some great options here.)

Love the Band

Don’t rock the shirt unless you really love the band. A graphic tee can often be a conversation starter…so don’t get yourself in a situation where you can’t name a song that the band sings. Keep your look genuine to avoid any awkward conversation.

Don’t change your style to fit the tee

Most importantly, don’t change your style just to rock the tee.  As a matter of fact, I think the less rock ‘n’ roll your outfit, the better.  A band tee definitely has an edgy vibe that doesn’t necessarily fit my classic, all-American style. In order to work this fun tee into my wardrobe, I paired it classic details – Levi’s denim, leopard pumps and a J. Crew jacket. Stick to what you’re comfortable in and let the tee be an unexpected element.

Moral of the story, do not underestimate the styling potential of your favorite band tee! Granted this outfit isn’t for every occasion, but how cute would it be for a night out or better yet a concert! This fun trend gives the basic “jeans and tee” look a run for its money!

Monogrammed Travel Accessories

Monogrammed Travel Accessories

Large Canvas Tote | Jewelry Case | Lingerie Bag

My husband and I travel A LOT. Whether it’s a night away, a weekend down at the shore or a full blown vacation – we’re always headed somewhere fun. Our on-the-go lifestyle has trained me to be as efficient as possible when it comes to packing and carrying my luggage. It’s all about being organized and making the most of the space you have. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite Marleylilly monogrammed travel accessories that I always take with me!

When it comes to packing, it’s all about compartmentalizing. Everything should have it’s own space in your suitcase. While you can simply fold and pack your clothing –  accessories and lingerie should be kept separate. To keep my undergarments organized I use this adorable monogrammed lingerie bag. It’s split in two compartments labeled “Wear Me” and “Wash Me”. How cute is that?! Not only is this travel bag great for packing, it’s also useful for keeping things organized during your whole trip.

Jewelry should also be kept separate from the rest of your belongings. Marleylilly make a great travel jewelry case. This cute little box is perfect for storing your rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. It has pockets on the inside to keep your jewels protected and organized. It also comes with a detached jewelry pouch I use to hold long pendant necklaces.

And lets not forget about carry-on luggage! A classic canvas tote is perfect for carrying whatever items don’t fit in your suitcase. This huge carry-all is very sturdy and well-made. It includes a top zipper to conceal and protect everything inside – a huge bonus for when you’re traveling! It’s also a great bag to bring to the beach.

Thanks to Marleylilly, you can have all these pieces beautifully monogrammed with your initials free of charge! Each item is offered in multiple colors, patterns and monogram styles. I love having travel accessories with this personal touch! You can shop all personalized Marleylilly products here.

ps. If you’re looking for a great suitcase for traveling, I recommend the Victorinox Spectra 2.0 Collection. My husband and I registered for these suitcases when we got married and we absotuley LOVE them! They’re one of the best and most useful gifts we received. The 32″ spinner is great for long trips and the 22″ carry-on is perfect for weekend getaways. I linked them both along with all my monogrammed travel accessories below!

How To Style A Blazer From Day to Night

Style a blazer from day to night

OUTFIT 1 –  Blazer: A New Day | Pants: Level 99 | Shoes: Merona | Cami: Halogen | Heels: J. Crew Factory | Necklace: Gorjana | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bag: Vintage Chanel

OUTFIT 2 – Blazer: A New Day | Tee: Lush | Jeans: Levi’s | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Blazers are one of my favorite trends for fall. I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately – herringbone and vintage plaid patterns in particular. Blazers are incredibly versatile and easy to style. They’re also a great layer for fall with this gorgeous cool (but not too cold) New England weather!

My best advice for styling a blazer is to pair it with unexpected details. Don’t wear it with other business casual attire. A blazer is corporate looking enough on its own! Instead,  pair it with casual pieces to tone down the “professional” look. If you’re dressing it up, wear it with a slinky cami and high-waisted skinnies. If you’re dressing it down, style it with distressed denim and slip-on loafers. You can also change the look by playing around with the sleeves. I prefer to wear them scrunched up or cuffed to show the interior lining.

The blazer featured in this post was a STEAL! I got it for $34. The quality and the fit are worth far more than what I paid for it. This was such a great find!  I’m styling my herringbone blazer two ways to show how versatile and fashionable this piece can be. See how effortlessly you can style a blazer from day to night! My “night” look includes a pair of black high-waisted skinny jeans, black silk cami and black stiletto pumps. I kept my base of this look monochromatic to showcase the blazer. For my “day” look, I styled my blazer with a white tee, raw hem denim and silver slip-on loafers. I also cuffed the sleeves for a more casual look.

Shore Soap Co. – All Natural Skin Care

All Natural Skin Care

Soap | Toner | Oil | Mist

Over the past year I’ve made conscious effort to start replacing my skin care and beauty products with all natural alternatives. Turns out, it’s not that easy. There are a lot of all natural options out there, but not a lot that actually work. While I may never be able to go completely “au natural”, I finally have my all natural skin care routine covered.

During my last trip to Newport, my girlfriends and I stopped in  Shore Soap Co.  while shopping along Thames Street in Newport (we were drawn in by the scent of their soaps as we passed by!)  Shore Soap Co. is a small business in Rhode Island that specializes in handmade bath and body products using natural ingredients and classic techniques. The founders, a husband and wife duo, started off in the soap making industry but recently developed into a full body and skin care line. All products sold by Shore Soap Co. are inspired by the sea and natural elements. Their mission is to “create high-end goods using premium ingredients while also keeping them affordable.” Mission accomplished!

While shopping the store, I stumbled upon their all natural skin care line and figured I’d give it a try. I should mention that prior to discovering these products, I was experiencing extreme redness and dryness on my face. After using Shore Soap Co’s skin care line for a month, my skin has COMPLETELY changed – the redness significantly diminished and the dryness reversed. My skin has never felt so smooth, hydrated and radiant. These products REALLY work. They’re also super affordable. Keep scrolling to learn more about my new skin care routine!

All Natural Skin Care Routine

My Skin Care Routine

Here’s a roundup of the Shore Soap Co. products I use day and night, along with directions for use!

All Natural Skin Care Regimen
CLEANSE

Shore Soap Co. offers two cleansing bars both packed full of European Spa Sea Salt. The Unscented Bar is a very gentle cleanser and a great option for all skin types.  The Tea Tree & Charcoal Bar cleanses and mildly exfoliates to rid impurities and help with oily and blemish prone skin.

I wash my face with the Unscented Cleanse bar every day when I wake up and before bed. I run the bar under warm water and work the creamy lather into my face. I supplement with the Tea Tree & Charcoal bar once a week for mild exfoliation and detoxification. TIP: You can also use this product as a mask by leaving the lather on your face to dry for 15 minutes before rinsing.

Both bars will leave your skin feeling smooth and squeaky clean! It’s important to note that these soaps do NOT dry your skin like typical bar soaps. They’re full of natural oils and shea butter to help keep you clean AND moisturized.

All Natural Skin Care Products
TONE

Using a facial toner is such an important part of your daily skin care regimen. Shore Soap Co. offers a gentle toner with glycolic acid to help balance and rejuvenate your skin. They add Sea Kelp Extract too, which has anti-aging properties to help soften your skin and reverse cell damage.

After cleansing my face, I spray 3-4 pumps of toner on a cotton pad and apply to my face and neck. This facial toner feels so refreshing on your skin and is great for removing any traces of dirt and makeup before moisturizing.

All Natural Skin Care Facial Oil
NOURISH & MOISTURIZE

Facial oils are amazing for hydrating your skin. They absorb deeper than creams and lotions promoting youthful looking skin and promoting all day hydration. This oil also uses ingredients that have naturally occurring antioxidant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. If you suffer from acne, rosacea or other skin problems, this moisturizer is an excellent option. It’s a lightweight formula that does not cause any type of irritation and will work on all skin types.

I apply 1-2 drops of facial oil to my face and neck after cleansing and toning. I massage the oil into my skin and allow 5 minutes for it to fully absorb.

All Natural Skin Care Products
REFRESH

If your skin needs a little pick me up, Shore Soap Co.’s face mist will do the trick! It’s packed full of soothing ingredients to help refresh your face throughout the day. This face mist will help fight against redness, irritation, inflammation and acne.

I carry this face mist with me throughout the day and spritz as needed (it can be used over makeup). It’s a nice little refresher and hydration boost!

Shore Soap Co. All Natural Skincare Products

Shore Soap Co. all natural skin care products can be purchased at their flagship store in Newport, RI or online. Be sure you also try their soaps! They have so many amazing scents to choose from, you’ll have trouble deciding! If you’re stumped, go with the Pacific Bar – it’s one of their best sellers!
