Style | August 24, 2018

It’s finally that time of year where the mornings and evenings require a little bit more clothing than the rest of the day. Its finally not frowned upon to start shopping with fall in mind. Wardrobe staples are simply clothing that is easily interchangeable with each outfit and that all wardrobes need. I’ve put together some of my favorite fall staples perfect for the minimalists closet.

Black on Black

Black on black doesn’t mean goth anymore… but instead French minimalist. This look, in fact, is my favorite! This black cashmere sweater with ankle pants and a black mule are the perfect staple for your fall minimalist wardrobe!

summer meets fall

Just because summer is nearing an end doesn’t mean that you have to put your summer dresses away until next year. Add a cozy sweater and a tall boot and walla.. the perfect, yet colorful way to enter the fall with style. And – every minimalist wardrobe needs a cozy sweater and a tall boot.. so it’s a win-win.

Casual on the go

Give me a high waited cropped pair of jeans any day! Seriously… In love with these jeans! Combine it with a tucked in ribbed top and a pair of ankle booties to give it the perfect amount of fall and comfort! Plus, you can’t go wrong with a tan leather Madewell bag and booties! Both are fall staples for sure!

Business casual

If your a working gal but want something stylish yet casual this is the perfect look for you! These cobalt blue loafers are to die for and paired with this blue button down tunic is amazing! Add a pair of gray stretch ankle pants and you’ve yet again added a few key minimalistic staples to your fall wardrobe.

Everyone needs a blazer

So blazers don’t just have to be for suites anymore. Pair with some great jeans and pumps and you’ll be styling for sure! I just adore this bucket bag from Madewell that brings the right amount of causal to this structured outfit!

night out – with an edge

A striped dress is a must for any wardrobe. It can be paired with some slide on sneakers to be dressed down or a pair of ankle booties for a night out! This bag helps to dress the outfit up with its gold accents and of course, the crossbody can be dressed down with a tee shirt and a pair of jeans… It’s so versatile!If you’ve loved these looks please click the images below to check out their source and to do some shopping.

The warm weather is FINALLY here so it’s time to dig out those summer accessories! I’m super into wooden watches this season.

My Jord wooden watch was sent in this adorable box! Made from wood, this box is obviously a keepsake! On the farm, we try to keep in mind the saying reduce reuse recycle, so I LOVE that fact that this watch didn’t come with absurd packaging!

I love to keep things simple when styling my wooden watch by either wearing it solo or stacking on a few beaded bracelets to show off some arm candy.

No lie – every time I leave the house wearing this watch I get several “I LOVE your watch… where did you get it?!” I can’t help but tell everyone where they can get theirs!

Ok.. so we all start getting to that age where the years of tanning beds and layers and layers of makeup piled on over the years have started to take a toll on our skin. A while back I started looking at moisturizers and anti-aging serums to help repair some of the damage to my skin and quickly found out that it was going to cost a pretty penny. I dove in head first and decided that I wanted to get an all-natural product with ingredients that I could pronounce and with proven benefits. I went with a serum containing essential oils. I loved reading all the benefits and how multi-purposeful they were. After about 6 months of buying this serum, I finally realized that I could make this product myself, and for much cheaper then I was paying. I bought the ingredients right from Amazon (which I’ll link below) and a Young Living rep who offered lots of education on how to use these oils for my health and household. I also ordered the glass bottle and dropper to hold my serum on Amazon as well. The best part about making your own serum is that you know exactly whats in them. No need to stress over ingredients where you’re shrugging your shoulders trying to figure out why they’re there and what they do!

Below are the oils I chose to use and their benefits

Frankincense Essential Oil:  This oil can be a little pricey, but It’s TOTALLY worth the investment. There are lots of benefits to this oil, particularly for the skin. Frankincense oil is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. This oil is also used to support strong immunity and healthy cell regeneration.

 Lavender Essential Oil: This oil is probably one of the most versatile oils. There are millions of ways to use lavender essential oil, but for the skin, it can help fight acne and scarring, and the smell is calming and improves concentration. It can also be used for bruises, burns, dermatitis, and eczema.

 
 
 

Jojoba oil:  This is a great oil for moisturizing your skin. It absorbs well without clogging your pores. This makes it a great carrier oil for your face. It helps heal wounds and clears acne by preventing the growth of bacteria. It also contains vitamin E, which is a great antioxidant and helps protects against free radicals that damage our skin. It also has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties!

Argan oil:  This is a great lightweight oil that will leave your skin feeling hydrated without feeling greasy. It diminishes wrinkles by increasing the elasticity of your skin. Agran oil is high in linoleum acid which is great for reducing inflammation caused by acne. It’s also rich in ursolic acid which has powerful collagen stimulating properties and can aid in anti-aging and heal skin damage.

Bold Brows! How to shape and fill your Eyebrows

You may’ve noticed that eyebrows have made a comeback. When I was in high school the style was the skinniest little caterpillar eyebrows. We plucked those things until they were almost gone. Over the years – thankful mine have gown back and with a few brow tools I’m able to have full brows again. Now, I’m not talking Brooke Shield brows in the 80s, but still full shapely brows. I look back to pictures of myself in high school and my face looks rounder. My weight has fluctuated slightly through the years… but I pretty much look the same. The only difference is that instead of my face looking round, It looks a little more oval. My secret is eyebrow shaping! Here I’ll show you how to get those full brows you’ve been looking for.
Here are the tools you’ll need to shape and fill your brows. I get my supplies at Ulta, but I’m sure most beauty supply stores will have them. When choosing your brow colors remember if you’re a brunette don’t choose black, but a darker brown and if you’re blonde don’t choose a yellow, but a very light brown.
  1. tweezers… I like tweezerman
  2. magnified mirror
  3. brow pomade
  4. brow powder
  5. brow tools
  6. brow gel
The key is symmetry. Draw a line with the tip of your eyebrow angled brush from the corner of your eye diagonally out. This is where the start of your brow should begin. Next draw a line with your angled brush from about the center of your eye diagonal to the arch of your brow. Then draw a line from the other end of your eye crease up and out diagonally. This is where your brow should end. This is the basic Shape of your brow.
Now that you know the shape of your brows from the diagram above you’ll start the process of plucking your brows and allowing the spots to start to growing back where you’ve over-plucked. The magnified mirror helps to get those small stubborn hairs that you just can’t see.
First start with combing our your brows so all the hairs are going in the right direction using the brow tool with a comb end.
Next outline your brow lightly with the brow pomade and the small angled brush. Once outlined, start filling in with the pomade.
Then use your brown powder to fill in the whole brow giving it a more natural look using the small angled brush. Lastly use your brow gel to comb over your brow and to lock in the color.
