Black and White Stripes

 I'm wearing my Meaneor jacket.  It's such a great fabric, since it's doesn't tend to wrinkle.  A basic black jacket is a must for me because it goes with so many things.

Beige Print Dress

 It was actually HOT the day I wore this beige print dress.  It was a glorious day.  I am so looking forward to warm weather!

Which season do you enjoy dressing for the most?

Bridesmaid Dress Ideas

Spring will soon be here, and with it, wedding season.  Now's the time to start thinking of the perfect dress for the day.

For this post, I am focusing on a few of my favorite bridesmaid dress choices.  We've all heard the jokes about the ugly bridesmaid dress; well, these dresses are anything but ugly!  And, if the choices I'm showing you today are not your cup of tea, just check out the many other options to be found at Okdress!  All of the dresses here come in sizes 4 to 30W!

This first gown is shown in the color "watermelon", but it's also available in 31 other colors!  So, if you like this style, you are bound to find a color to go with your scheme for the big day!   I can picture this dress being perfect for a tropical wedding!


This next choice is a classic cut, and is also available in many other color options.  This gown is listed as a maternity dress, but it's actually a great style for most anyone, pregnant or not.  This is another great choice for cheap bridesmaid dresses.



 This third dress option is shown in "Pool" and "Pearl".  Pearl is such a dreamy, pastel shade of pink, I'm in love with it!  I also love the timeless "sweetheart" neckline.

Next up are three Bridesmaid Dresses Under £100!  


This first dress is a short option, which I love.  This one comes in many other colors as well, but I am really fond of this grey, it's so unique!

This next dress is also short, and grey, but has the stunning stone details at the neckline and waist.  This is perfect for the girl that loves her bling, but in an understated way.

Last but not least is this wrap bust dress in "champagne".  This style (in the color shown) whispers "understated elegance" to me.

Pink Leaf Sweater

We are going to have above average temperatures here in Virginia for the next week...I'm excited!  During this past fall/winter, I have been loving to wear leggings with sweater.  There's not much else that is as comfortable.  I just recently purchased these off-white leggings.  I bought a lot of new sweaters that I think would go much better with white than blue denim, of basic black leggings.

I do have a bit of anxiety when wearing white, though, but I got through this day with no smudges on my new leggings!  Yay!

Print Maxi Skirt

I wore this outfit for a trip to Richmond, Virginia.  It was a beautiful, warm day, and this outfit was almost too warm for it! There's something so comfortable about a maxi skirt, and I just love the print of this one.

Silk Skirt

I was happy that it was warm enough today to wear a skirt and not feel like I was freezing.  It's been great this past week not needing to wear a heavy coat when I go out!

Gold Blouse

I wore this outfit yesterday for a trip to Amelia Court House, Virginia.  It was such a gorgeous day to be out!  Today is going to even hotter!  I am going to be sad to see these warm days go, but spring is going to be here soon,  so I'll hang in there!

Bioderma Review

For today's post, I am reviewing several products from the Bioderma skincare line. All of these products are available for purchase here in the U.S. at Beautylish.com


Hydrabio Serum

Bioderma Hydrabio Serum is a moisturizing concentrate for very dehydrated, sensitive skin.  This is my favorite of all the products I tried from Bioderma, and my favorite facial moisturiser, ever!  The one thing I use most is moisturiser, and this one worked great!  My skin was recently getting dry and uncomfortable, and, after using this moisturizer a few days, is completely turned around.  A small amount is all you need for your entire face, so even though the item can be a bit pricey, it will last a long time.


Sebium Mat Control
Bioderma Mat Control is a shine-control moisturiser for combination/oily sensitive skin.  This moisturiser has my favorite scent of all; it's so fresh and reminds me of summer!  My favorite thing about all of the moisturisers is they are all lightweight and comfortable on the skin.  I really hate to wear moisturisers that leave my skin feeling greasy, oily, and sticky.



Sensibio Eye

Bioderma Sensibio Eye is a contour gel for sensitive, intolerant skin.  This product doesn't seem to have any fragrance.  It's a nice, light moisturiser, and feels great to use around the eyes.



Sensibio H2O

Bioderma Sensibio H2O is a make-up removing micelle solution for sensitive skin.  I found that this product works best for removing my foundation, but it takes a little more effort to remove my gel eyeliner.  I don't notice any scent, which is probably a good thing for a product that is made to use so close to the eyes!



Hydrabio H2O

Bioderma Hydrabio H2O is a moisturising, make-up removing micelle solution.  This makeup remover seems to have a light, fresh scent, unlike the above mentioned.  I also noticed the same results when trying to remove my eyeliner and mascara.




Sebium H2O

Bioderma Sebium H2O is a purifying, cleansing micelle solution.
It seemed to me that I actually had better results using this cleanser to remove my eyeliner than I did with the makeup removers.  This product seems to use the same fresh scent that is in the moisturising remover.

Sea Foam Sweater

After spending a lovely, warm day out in Richmond yesterday, today was cold and super windy here in Farmville!  This weather is crazy!

I'm still collecting sweaters for the rest of this winter.  I have quite the collection going, now!

Lunch in Lynchburg

 As I mentioned in Monday's post, Vaughan and I had our first date at the Olive Garden in Fredericksburg, Virginia, so the restaurant has a special place in our hearts, and we celebrate every "meeting" anniversary there.

Thank you to the Olive Garden for a special lunch, Monday in Lynchburg, Virginia.  Vaughan and I had a great time at this location, which is one we had not been to before.  

Now we need to plan where we're going to celebrate next year...

Anniversary

This is the outfit I wore on my first date with Vaughan.  I wear it each year for our anniversary, and this year was no different.  Since we had our first date at an Olive Garden, that's where we go each year for our anniversary, too.  This year, we went to the Olive Garden in Danville, Virginia.

SheIn Blue Sweater

I just love this pretty shade of blue of this SheIn sweater.  The knit is so soft and comfortable.  I'm looking forward to wearing this into spring, since he color would be perfect for the season.  This sweater comes in just one size, but it happened to fit me perfectly!

I like blue and brown together, but this would also looks fabulous with white, or pink leggings, and so many other colors, too!

Black and White Striped Sweater

I'm wearing a simple, casual and comfortable outfit for today's post.  I love my black leggings!  They really do go with everything, and are perfect for long trips.  They are great for cold weather, because I feel nice and warm, but still look chic.
