Layered Slip Dress

  Happy 2019! First post of the year and I wanted to share a more dressier look and one of my favourite styles right now. Lately, I’ve been layering dresses and loving it. Especially when layering a little sparkle with a slip dress. It’s so fun to wear and gives you more coverage in the colder months. I’ve also been into layering my casual looks too, which I’ll be sharing more of this Winter. My slip dress and sheer tee are both from Shop Honey. And my boots are from Zara. I’ve linked some similar options below: Dress (similar) | Tee (similar) | Bootsxo Lauren

3 Ways to Shine and Stand Out in Your Casual Outfits

Jacket (50% off) | Sweater (50% off) | Jeans (50% off)| Bag (50% off) | Boots With the Holidays going strong and beautiful dresses everywhere, it can feel hard to shine and stand out in your casual outfits! And as tempting as it is to add sequins and glitter to every outfit, it’s just not practical. Creating a casual outfit to shine and stand out in can sometimes feel hard. Thankfully, Express has made it easy this Holiday season to not just shine with their Holiday pieces, but, with their casual pieces too. Below, I’m sharing my 3 ways to shine and stand out in your casual outfits with Express. 3 Ways to Shine and Stand Out in Your Casual Outfits: 1. Choose the right jacket One of the easiest ways to shine wearing a casual look is choosing the right jacket. Ditch the black puffer or peacoat for something more fun. A great jacket to help you shine is not only stylish but warm too. This faux fur lined boyfriend jacket literally checks off every box. It’s super warm, cozy and is very versatile, too! I love an oversized fit to make a statement. Plus, as the weather gets colder I can bundle more underneath because of it’s oversized fit! 2. Pick the perfect pair of pants As the weather gets colder, I like to swap out my light washed destroyed denim for darker wash denim. Sometimes, darker wash denim without some rips can be a little boring. I love how…

3 Dresses I’m Loving for The Holidays

Hey guys! It’s been a HOT minute since I posted last, which I am totally sorry about. Things have been busy over here. But, I do want to get into the habit of blogging regularly in the New Year again. So I guess I just set my first New Years Resolution, lol! So without further adieu, here are the 3 dresses I’ve been LOVING for the Holidays.   3 Dresses I’m Loving for The Holidays:   1. Glitter Gal K, this first dress is everything I’ve every dreamed of. It’s glittery (duh), fits like a dream and can be worn in multiple ways. I wore it with a sparkly bodysuit here and was totally obsessed with that look. Below, I styled it for more of an elegant Christmas party. And let’s just chat about how amazing these tights are. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll see me wearing a lot of these tights by From Rachel. I HIGHLY recommend checking them out they have great tights for every day and for the Holidays. Dress: Honey (or here) | Tights: From Rachel | Shoes: Forever 21 (similar) | Earrings: Swarovski (in blush here) 2. The Iconic LBD I mean, what girl doesn’t have her go-to LBD? I’m a huge Zara lover and knew I had to snag this cute faux leather LBD when I saw it. I’m also a huge sucker for floral and frills, so this dress just nailed it right on the head for me. And how Holiday-esque is…

PS.. all these items are under $30 too with their Cyber Monday sale (which is up to 80% off almost everything)!   1. Quartz Roller The BEST stocking stuffer for your mama, sister or girlfriend. This little quartz roller is such a staple in a good skincare regime. It’s easy to use. Pretty to look at. And a must have that many women don’t know they needed until they receive it. The quartz roller is a definite must-have for stuffing stockings this Christmas. 2. Dry Brush and Massager Shh.. this is on the list for my hubby. He always wants to exfoliate his back in the shower and have a brush that can massage him as well. As soon as I saw this body exfoliating brush I knew I had to get it for him for Christmas 3. Hydrating Rose Facial Spray This spray has been giving my dry skin all the moisturizing and love that it needs during these cold months. I will definitely be filling stockings…

Holiday Sparkle w/ Honey

Finally, it’s time for all things Christmas! Other then the Christmas movies, music, food and decoration I *obviously* love Holiday dresses. Embarrassingly, I have SO many dresses this year. Hopefully, I have more events coming up otherwise I will literally have nowhere to wear them (lol). Anyways, it’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post on my blog! So, I wanted to quickly share my favorite Holiday dress so far today on BBL. Both the dress and the bodysuit are from Honey! I am totally OBSESSED with this dress. Like, OBSESSED. I love it without the bodysuit and with tights. Or, with the bodysuit for a less formal event. Super cute either way. And a definite must have. Honey doesn’t have an online shop but you can check out their website here to check their Canadian locations. But I also did link similar dresses and bodysuits for those who don’t live in Canada. 🙂 XO Lauren
