Weekend OOTD & FOTD

This Easter Sunday, instead of loading up on chocolate or participating in Easter egg hunts, Jacy and I met up with our best friend from high school for coffee.

The rest of the day was spent relaxing at home.  I didn't want to go all out with my outfit/makeup/hair so I opted for a casual look that required minimal effort.

Here I am shamelessly posing.  

button up - Forever 21
tshirt - Too old to remember!
leggings - Forever 21
jellies - Fred Meyer

The weather was beautiful again so I was going for something that would keep me cool in the sun but shield me from the wind (we usually have a lot here).  Side note: do jellies bring you back to the 90s!? Sure does for me (:

concealer - Revlon Colorstay in Fair
bronzer - e.l.f. Baked Bronzer in St. Lucia
blush - e.l.f. Studio Blush in Candid Coral
lips - Maybelline in 215 Totally Toffee
eyes - Chopper from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette 
          Benefit They're Real! mascara

When I don't do much in a day I don't like to go for a full-coverage makeup look.  I used concealer in my problem areas, light bronzer to match my tan, a little blush, a one-shade eye, mascara and voila! Quick and easy weekend look. 

What did you do this Easter Sunday?

Thanks for taking a moment to share my day (: Also be sure to check out my sister's blog, justJacy.  The link is in my sidebar.

Sister Shopping & OOTD's

Yesterday my sister, Jacy, and I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went on a little shopping trip!  It was a good break from school, work and general daily stresses.  

We started off the day with a little espresso... 

White coffee, white mocha with banana. YUM!

...headed to the mall where we found a few bargains, and finished up with a quick lunch at Olive Garden. Soup, salad and bread sticks--can't pass that up!

Jacy and I are twins and often have the same taste, however we style ourselves pretty differently.  Here are our takes on a casual shopping day look.  After lunch we stopped by this small community park to snap a few pics.  It was a little later in the day so the sun was pretty low and bright! Excuse the squinting (:

top - Forever 21                                                                          dress - Forever 21                           
jeans - Rue 21                                                                            flats - Charlotte Russe 
boots - material girl; purchased through Alloy                            earrings - Forever 21
necklace - wet seal
bracelet - Kohl's

Can you see a theme with our obsession with Forever 21?  We're both college students so we are all about affordable, cute fashion.  

My goal for this day was to have something easy to work with for trying things on which is why I chose a dress with an attached slip and slip-on flats.  You can't tell from the picture but they're plain black and pointed toe. 

I went light on accessories.  For my makeup I did a simple two-tone eye and chose a lip color that popped which is Maybelline from the vivid's collection in 900 Hot Plum.   

What's your go-to look for a day out?
Would you dare to wear a bold lip?

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoy your day (:

Our First Vacation

Food lover's first stop--Mo's chowder and fish&chips!
Spring break has come and gone, and this year we had our first vacation together!  "We" meaning me and my boyfriend, Tyler.  I thought it would be fun to show you a few pictures and pieces of our experience.  
         Although the coasts of the northwest aren't exactly known for their beautiful weather, I think                      that our visit  may have been exceptionally bad.  The storms didn't ruin the fun though!  We had a great time shopping at the bay front, exploring the nature preserve and lighthouse, and soaking in our amazing Jacuzzi tub.

         Have you ever been to Newport or the Oregon Coast?

Thanks for sharing in our fun (:
