On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink: Floral and Studs

floral-dress-rockstuds

Happy Hump Day! On Wednesdays, we wear pink! ūüôā

It was another beautiful day at the Botanical Garden. Today I am wearing a lightweight tank with this¬†beautiful floral full midi skirt. ¬†I love that you can dress it up or down, so I know I’m going to get a lot of use out of it!

 

I’ve been on a Mean Girls¬†kick lately so my unofficial theme today was “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” So I made sure that my Valentino Rockstuds fit in. These studded pumps are very comfortable, and there are many different versions to choose from.¬†I have linked several at the bottom of the page. ¬†Although some luxury brand shoes can be uncomfortable or only worn on special occasions, I am looking forward to pairing them with white skinny jeans or even a white lace dress.

The Perfect Lace Dress


Today’s post is all about this darling lace dress

I hope everyone had a nice Easter!  Since we had some free time, we decided to walk around our local botanical garden. Even though it was a little overcast, there was still a nice breeze which made for a pleasant walk around the park.

Because we were going to a beautiful botanical garden, I made sure that my outfit was light and feminine to fit the occasion ‚Äď cue this lace dress! I’m absolutely in love with it and was surprised to see that it was from¬†Kendall+Kylie¬†! ¬†It feels so soft and delicate, and it also comes in black if you’re so inclined!

My shoes are currently on sale¬†here. ūüôā They run true to size and are surprisingly very comfortable. My feet do not slide forward and they are easy to walk in. They also come in several colors. Including¬†this pair with rhinestones!!

Since I was feeling this outfit so much, I obviously had a little photo shoot for this lace dress! Check out how I styled it below.

March Style Haul: All That Glitters..

march-style-haul

 

Happy Saturday! I’ve added a few beauties to my closet this month and, of course, I couldn’t help but share them with you all. So, consider this a mini style haul for March!

I was looking for the perfect pair of going out pumps and it just so happens that these are extremely comfortable! ¬†The color is fabulous and the height is perfect. ¬†A bold red heel is a fashion statement that will never go out of style, and this pair is an exclusive style from Stuart Weitzman‚Äď only sold¬†here.

I’m also obsessing over this cosmetic bag from The Impeccable Pig. ¬†It is under $25! ¬†It’s the perfect size to keep in your purse and I definitely make sure to keep it with me for touchups while I’m out with the family.

While I was shopping, I also couldn’t help but pick up a few pieces of jewelry. For the past few seasons, sparkles and pineapples (who would’ve thought?) are very on-trend so these dazzling pineapple earrings were the perfect catch!

Though I did get a few more things this month, that wraps up for my top favorites for this style haul! Will you be buying into any of these trends this season?

Austin Bound: Inspiration Boards

Hi, all! My cousin is going to Austin next month, and she asked me to help her find a few things to wear.  I found some pieces I think she will love all by using inspiration boards.

No one really TRIES¬†to over-pack. ¬†It just… happens. ¬†That is where a style board can help you plan ahead and not over load your suitcase. Below are three that I created using the¬†Polyvore¬†app, which what I’ve been using for my inspiration boards to save some room around the house.

Beauty Sleep With My Night Skin Care Routine

origins-skincare

 

 

Hello! Tonight I wanted to share with you a few products that I swear by. ¬†Above is my night skin care routine. ¬†The apricot face scrub by Origins is one of my favorites! ¬†I use it about once a week. ¬† It leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and looking radiant. ¬†It’s the best exfoliator I have ever used!¬† You can find it¬†here.

For my every night cleanser, I use¬†Origins Zero Oil. ¬†I was a little concerned about the oil base, but it surprisingly doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily! ¬†I sometimes¬†use¬†A Perfect World Cleanser¬†to change things up. ¬†I follow my cleansing¬†with¬†United State Tonic. ¬†It rebalances your skin and de-shines T-zones, so I knew it was worth keeping in my routine.

I think this has to be one of the most glazed-over steps of many night skin care routines, but moisturizing is a must to keep skin healthy and looking young. To moisturize, I use GinZing or A Perfect World.  Both feel great on my skin and smell AMAZING!

My night skin care routine also hits an important spot to give care to: your lips! I have recently discovered¬†this lip balm¬†by La Mer and wonder where it has been all my life. ¬†I use it throughout the day and before bed. ¬†My lips no longer get chapped so I’m considering getting a second so I can keep one in my night stand and one in my purse.

This Fancy Face Serum is a new anti-aging serum that I just started using.  It is loaded with good-for-you all organic ingredients that help prevent a wide variety of problematic skin conditions.

I end my days with my¬†SlipSilk pillowcase! ¬†I cannot say enough good things about it. ¬†It feels so cool against my face and it doesn’t make my head sweat. ¬† ¬†When I wake up, my hair doesn’t even look like I slept on it. ¬†No tangles! ¬†Pure¬†silk pillowcases¬†are recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and hairdressers. It comes in four gorgeous colors to choose from. ¬†You won’t be disappointed!

That just about wraps up my routine‚Äď what are your skincare musts?

I’m off to get some beauty sleep. Hope you all have a great night!

Easter Dresses: Ready for Andi’s First

first-easter

 

Hi there!

Andi and I are getting excited for Easter! ¬†This will be her first. ¬†We are Greek Orthodox, so our Easter is a little later this year (May 1st), but that doesn’t mean we will not be dressing up this Sunday as well!

image

There are so many great prints this season that it was extremely¬†hard to just choose just 1. ¬†Both of the dresses I wore are so comfortable, especially in the summer! ¬†The fabric feels cool against the skin and I like that they are not overly flowy. ¬†The engineered panel on the back of the blue dress is the perfect added detail, and who doesn’t love an exposed zipper??

Plus, did I mention they have gifts with purchase now through Sunday?!? ūüôā

The Summer Dress of Dreams: Midi, Mint, and Tassels

summer-dress

 

Good evening everyone!

I am so excited about this dress. ¬†It has been sold out for months, but it’s finally back in stock! ¬†It also comes in coral, which I may¬†be adding to my closet. ¬†It would be perfect for summer! ¬†You can do so much with this dress. ¬†It is a great canvas for¬†just about¬†any shoe or accessory. ¬†If you want to add some more shape, this dress is also adorable belted.

Here, I’ve¬†paired it with pumps in the prettiest color of mint I have ever seen. These M. Gemi¬†mint heels are perfect for a few reasons: mint is a huge part of this season’s fashion¬†and it’s a subtle, summery pop of color.¬†M. Gemi¬†has some of the best shoes, including these mint beauties. ¬†Use this link¬†to get $40 off your order!!Summer-dress

Because accessories are the perfect touch to any outfit, I added this darling tassel necklace that was under $10!

Welcome to Andi’s List!

Hi there!

Welcome to the post of Andi’s List. This is going to be my go-to place for fashion, life, and family fun.

Today, we decided to visit The¬†Ringling on this chilly Monday afternoon. ¬†Fun fact: there’s free admission to the Museum of Art every Monday. ¬†Score!

Not realizing how cold (for Floridians) it was, I had left the house wearing sandals. ¬†Luckily, I had these suede beauties still in my car from our last cold front. ¬†The weather is so unpredictable here that everything needs to be versatile to transition throughout the day and¬†seasons. My tank will be perfect for spring and summer‚Äď or probably even next week! ¬†It’s cropped in the back¬†and will look adorable with shorts.
