A Colorful Outfit Idea That Will Make You Happy

Is this look colorful enough for you? I'm not one to often wear bright colors together but I love stepping out of my fashion comfort zone. If I have one bright piece, I always compliment it with a very dull color to balance it out. So I must say this outfit is definitely out of my fashion comfort zone. 

This black corset top from Femme Luxe is new in my wardrobe and I was so excited to wear it. You may have remembered my jumpsuit from Femme Luxe in this post which was such a favorite of mine. Their pieces are always great and they have a sale going on right now. Check out more tops like this on their site. The one I'm wearing comes in multiple colors and also different prints!

My original thought process was to even out this colorful striped skier with the black corset top but since I wanted to try something different I added an orange tank underneath. To my surprise I loved it. This might be the most color I've worn in an outfit but I love the mix of colors and it also makes a great summer outfit. Are you team color or team neutral? I fall somewhere in the middle and depends on my mood.

Fresh On The Go With Summer's® Eve


This post is sponsored by Summer's® Eve, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

We are just a few days away from the official first day of Summer! I love that the temperatures have been feeling scorching hot already, at least over here in D.C. If you have ever lived in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia areas, you know the summers down here are brutal.  Even though it can get unbearably hot on some days, Summer is one of my favorite seasons. There's so many fun outdoor activities you can do! I even love sitting outside in the park and just enjoying a fresh drink and reading on my phone. 

Being outside in the heat, I always have to make sure I bring products to freshen up. I'm so girly when it comes to that! In my purse, you'll always find lip balm, deodorant, fragrance mist, makeup for touch up, and feminine hygiene products. When "Aunt Flo" (aka my period) comes to visit, I always carry things to freshen up. One brand I love and have been using for many years is Summer's Eve®. They recently launched a new feminine cleansing product line called FreshCycle . Ladies, this new line is amazing! I love that it is available in Target. I'm in Target all the time, especially for my beauty needs, and I love that they carry this new line from Summer's Eve®. You can find it in the feminine care aisle. 

The new Summer's Eve® FreshCycle products include feminine Cleansing Cloths that come individually wrapped or in an easy-to-use soft pack with a lid you can just pull out the wipes. I really love the individually wrapped one because it is easy to share with a friend discreetly and you can pack the exact amount you need. In my experience, when it's that time of the month and especially during the summer months? A boost of freshness is a must! I tried these wipes recently when Aunt Flo came to visit and the wipes were such a quick and easy way to freshen up. Another great product from the FreshCycle line, which I love to carry around, is the No Rinse Cleansing Foam. This one is my favorite from the new line because it is like having a feminine wash on the go! It is a 5 fluid ounce bottle that lets you add 1-2 pumps on a folded tissue paper and just cleanse. It has enough moisture for a quick freshen-up without rinsing. That's such a genius idea if you ask me!

This entire new line is made with odor-reducing ingredients and Safe Scents that are clinically tested. I personally love the light fresh scent! I'm very particular with the feminine hygiene products I used because I don't like using harsh chemicals. Summer's Eve® FreshCycle  is ph-balanced and it is free from dyes and parabens. These products will be living in my purse, especially during the summer season.

After I had my daughter and I stopped breastfeeding, my reality of seeing my menstrual cycle again was not a happy one. Come on ladies, having Aunt Flo visiting is never a fun time: am I right? 
Summer's Eve® FreshCycle is a great new line with feminine products to carry on the go when you're on your menstrual cycle and need a quick refresh.

Summer Style: Pool Party Outfit Idea


palazzo pants, pool outfits, pool time, one piece bathing suit, amiclubwear

The official day of summer is just a few days away. That just means more beach, parks, and pool time for me. I received these mustard palazzo pants form Amiclubwear and I wanted to style them differently. That vibrant mustard color just made me think of water and knew this would make a great pool outfit.  With so many pool parties happening in the summer I wanted to share this effortless pool party outfit idea. The palazzo pants made a great swimsuit cover up to go with this leopard print one piece bathing suit. Throw on a straw hat and some sunglasses and you are ready for a pool party! The beauty of these pants is that they are wide legged and have so much flow to them. The material is breathable which make them pool appropriate. 

Would you play around with these pants and wear them as a pool attire?

Polka dots are currently trending but in my mind they are trending all year around. For the longest time it's been my favorite print and I even had a phase where 80% of things I bought were with polka dots. I dare you to type in "polka dots" in the search bar of this blog. Lol! It's such a fun print and I'm excited it's trending again for spring!

This bandeau top and maxi skirt from SHEIN is the perfect set for summer! I'm usually not a fan of bandeau tops but this one has good support. The skirt has two slits and pockets. I just love the details of this set! I paired it with red accents because there's something about black red and white together that I just love. This set comes in four other colors and make sure to use my code 2PATTYSKLOSET15 at checkout for 15% off!

A Versatile Kimono Dress

As I'm writing this post I just realized I have never had a kimono in my closet before. This floral print kimono dress from Lookbook Store is a great way to start adding a few to my wardrobe. It comes with a removable sash belt but I loved it instantly with the belt on to create a waistline. Something I noticed about this kimono dress when I was trying it on in my Lookbook try-on haul video was that this piece could be used so many different ways. I tried it on with an open front and definitely envisioned it with a swimsuit. It makes a perfect cover-up for the beach or pool! I also felt it could be used as a cardigan with tights or a skirt. You guys know I like to repurpose my wardrobe so this floral kimono dress will definitely get its bang for its buck!

If you're wondering about the fit I would say it's a great dress for summer because it fits comfortable and also feels breathable and light. It's under $25 so it's an affordable piece! Lookbook Store also sells pieces on Amazon so you can see this one and many more over there.

One thing I must admit is that when I tried it on without any shoes or accessories I felt like I had a night gown on. Lol. Once I added accessories and shoes the dress totally changed! It's crazy what accessories can do! I paired it with these green slip on wedges from Amiclubwear which are the most comfortable pair of shoes. I love the clear heel and the pretty earth green color. I love these shoes so much I also got them with a leopard print!

You're A Good Mom, Even When You Have Bad Days

"Motherhood is easy. It's like riding a bike... that's on fire...and you're on fire... everything is on fire." Honestly one of my favorite mom quotes, and if you are a mom then you get it. When I saw this letter print tee "I'm a mom. I totally got this" from SHEIN I just knew I had to have it! The paper bag shorts are also from SHEIN and honestly this is such a stylish "mom outfit" for me. It's so comfortable and adding some fun accessories makes this such a fun summer look.  SHEIN has a ton of daily new items and don't forget to use my code 2PATTYSKLOSET to get 15% off your order. 


As a mom I've had good days and bad days and I think all moms can relate. It's a reminder that you are human and it's ok to not have it all figured out. Somedays are great and "easy" and other days things just go off the rails and your plans go out the door. No matter what someone's life looks like on social media they have bad days as well. Bad days happen to everyone, it's apart of being a mom. It's taken me a while to realize that. I use to be such a planned person. I studied business so things for me where very strict in the sense that 2 + 2 equals 4 and if you take that out of he literal sense it just means this is the plan and nothing else can happen. I grew up in a household where things were very black and white. So now when those grey areas happen I had to learn how to adjust and fast.

A few weeks ago I had melt down. I woke up feeling like the worst mom in the world. I felt I was dedicating more time to my work than my daughter and I like I just couldn't juggle everything. I pretty much felt like I was doing this whole mom thing wrong. With the help of my some friends and husband (my support system) lending me their ear to just tell them how I feel I took the entire day off and spent the day with my daughter in the park. Every deadline on my desk waited. That day felt amazing! I wasn't thinking about what was going to happen tomorrow I was just living in the moment.

So for any momma who's reading this just remember having a bad mom day doesn't mean you're a bad mom. Bad days happen its part of the unpredictability of being a parent. You're a good mom even, when you have bad days!

What's In My Everyday Makeup Bag?


everyday makeup, makeup bag, drugstore makeup, high end makeup, easy makeup, makeup for everyday, natural makeup



What's in my everyday makeup bag? Whenever I have an occasion or special shoot to shoot I change up my makeup look, but for the most part I use the same products on an everyday basis. I'm a full time content creator so I'm not glammed up in makeup when I'm working from home. When I do go out to work at a coffee shop or meet up with a friend these are the products I use pretty much all the time. I also wear these products when I shoot my outfit pictures. 90% of the time I'm wearing sunglasses so I don't elaborate on my makeup too much unless it's a special shoot especially one that requires up close shots without sunglasses. Most of the stuff in the bag is mostly drugstore products with maybe one or two high end products I love! Click the video below and let me know if we use any of the same products. I've also linked everything I use below!

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

This momma is stepping out of her comfort zone today. It has taken me a while to understand my body will never be the same after a baby and even though I'm still trying to lose a few pounds no mater what the scale says my body will never be the same. Two set pieces are my favorite and for a while I would stay away from them because I felt my postpartum body had no business in one of them. I felt I was in my head and recently something inside me just said wear what you want. I'm head over heels with Femme Luxe and their lounge wear sets. The one I'm wearing today is a crop jumper and it's SO comfortable. I honestly felt like I was wearing fashionable pj's outside. Lol. Their ribbed lounge wear sets and knitted lounge wear sets are also comfortable and great pieces to add to your wardrobe. I know I've gotten a lot of use out of this set.

I wanted to do something different this time and instead of going for sneakers and making it a sporty look I dressed up this set. It's funny that accessories can really change a look. These leopard wedges with the transparent heel from Amiclubwear are so dreamy. They are very comfortable to walk in and I did size up half a size. I always have to with mules! I love their shoes and accessories. These tiny red oval cat eye sunglasses are also from Amiclubwear. How do guys like the tiny sunglasses trend, that I'm sure you've seen a lot?
