Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Pink and Girly Summer Date Night Outfit

Pink is my favorite color!

But...I pretty much only wear blacks and neutrals. Every now and then, I find an awesome pink piece that I can add to my wardrobe for flare, but that's about it for color for me haha. With fall coming up, I wanted to show off this end of summer date night outfit because I don't know when the next time I will be able to wear something like this will be, so enjoy! Details linked down below 🙂

Happy Friday!

I want to know, what are your thoughts on the Instagram update?? I'm not sure how I feel about the stories yet, because now I'm overwhelmed with how much social media I have to check every single day, but I do commend Instagram for their awesome filters and markers that you can write with! I also love how easy it is to watch everyone you follow's everyday life now. I never realized how many people I follow on Instagram that I don't follow on Snapchat! It's super cool to be able to get a peak into the behind the scenes of some bloggers and companies that I follow, and speaking of, did anyone get a chance to check out my Instagram Story yesterday? I was posting about two of the products that are saving my life right now, so let's get into this blog post and talk more about that and less about Instagram haha.

Levi’s Wedgie Jeans + DIY Adidas Sneakers With Patches

Hey guys! Can you believe it’s already Thursday?!

This week flew by! I wanted to do a recap post of my weekend at the lake and at the horse races, but I didn't get a chance to so you can look forward to that next week! I know I have been promising some back-to-school DIYs that you'll actually wear (because if you're anything like me, I try to DIY all the time and just end up wasting time and money when I don't use what I've made), so here's a sneak peak at the patch covered Adidas I made! I love patches so much, I think they're such a fun and cute trend, so I wanted to do something creative with them and this is what I came up with!

The Ultimate Back-to-School Wishlist for College Girls

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Back To School Wishlist for College 2016

Black Skinny Jeans (check!)
It's always a good feeling to start off the school year with a new pair of jeans. Personally, I'd always rather have a few pairs of jeans that I LOVE and rotate between them throughout the week than have tons of jeans that I don't know how I feel about. My staples are boyfriend jeans, black skinny jeans, dark wash skinny jeans, and whatever is in style that season like embellished or flare. I like both ripped and non ripped jeans, so I try to keep a variety in my collection. I already own a pair of these jeans, but I loved them so much that I wore them almost every other day and ripped the knee wholes way too big, so I figured it was time for a new pair.

Boyfriend Jeans (check!)
You may have seen these classic Levi's being rocked by Kylie Jenner, they're her signature wedgie jeans that make her butt look so fab. My sister bought a pair of these and told me how in love with them she was, so I decided to try them out, too. I usually don't spend this much on jeans, so I was ready to try them on and return them if there was even one thing I didn't like about them, but those tags came off as soon as all of my other jeans went in the trash. I'm not kidding, when you try on a pair of jeans that make you look this good, you will never want to wear any other jeans ever again. No wonder Kylie flaunts her behind in these, they really do work magic!

Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is definitely a staple in fall fashion and this Blank NYC one is a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wish I had acted faster, because now this one is out of stock in my size, but I have my fingers crossed that I find another cute one soon, let me know if you find any!

Belt with big Buckle
Okay...maybe this isn't a staple...but, it is on my back to school wish list! I used to wear belts like this all the time, but I haven't in forever and I'm so happy to see them coming back in style! Fun belts can add such a sexy flare to a basic outfit.

Boots
These boots are currently a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, too, and soooo cute! (Hurry up, the sale is over this Friday!) Having a good pair of boots in the fall is crucial, especially if you're from the north. I wear boots or booties every single day when it gets too chilly to wear flats or sneakers and I'm dying over these because the have a heel that's not unbearable and this shade will go with everything. I look at these boots and I'm already planning out mid-semester outfits for class!

Silky Dress (check!)
Slip dresses have been EVERYwhere lately. I'm not a huge fan of the tee shirt-under-dress look yet, but I can't wait to pair this with a leather jacket and my Doc Martens. It will create such a glam, punk rock look and I can't wait!

Makeup Brushes
Everyone knows that you're supposed to wash your makeup brushes on a regular basis, but everyone hates doing it. It's one of those tasks that we always forget to do or put off doing because we think about it at the wrong time. Pro tip: treat yourself to a new set of brushes at the beginning of each school year. Your face will clear up because there won't be any build up oil, and you'll feel the difference! Now I know makeup brushes are expensive, so try saving up ahead of time and keeping an eye out for sales. Also, here are a few sites where you can score some good quality, less expensive brush sets: Nanshy, Morphe, Sigma, and bh Cosmetics.

Kylie Cosmetics Special Edition Birthday Collection

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Edition

Who else absolutely died today when Kylie released her birthday surprise?!

Being the queen (or king) that she is, of course Kylie had to do something huge to celebrate her birthday. Last year it was blonde hair and a Ferrari, this year she released an entire line of cosmetics. This gold dripping, gold infused makeup collection was the most coveted thing on the internet today and I'd like to personally congratulate you if you managed to avoid seeing any of these viral photographs today (all of which were taken directly from the @KylieCosmetics Twitter account, I do not own the rights to any of them).

Luxury Lipstick Collection: TORY BURCH

Sophie Says Fashion + Beauty Blog | Luxury Lipstick Collection: Tory Burch

Let’s talk Tory Burch!

Tory Burch had always been one of my favorite designers because although I feel like her clothing is a little too mature for my age, I absolutely love her handbags and small accessories. When I first found out that she was going to release a beauty collection, I just about did a standing back flip. I immediately shared my excitement with my momma then we shared Instagram and blog posts anxiously awaiting its debut. Not too long after, I became the lucky girl that got to unwrap a few items from the collection that Christmas morning! I got This beautiful jewelry box, the perfume, and a travel sized roller ball bottle of the perfume. A year later, my mom gave me this lipstick!

I know this post is supposed to be about the lipstick, but I have to give this perfume a quick shoutout. Over all I have gone through two full bottles and two travel sized roller ball bottles of it. It's amazing.

Lush Bath

Who here is ready for the weekend??

This weekend I am going up to Lake George with my family and staying in a lakeside cabin! We are bringing our boat and loads of good food, I couldn't be more excited! Being out on the lake at the end of summer is the best thing because you just get the overwhelming feeling that you want to soak every second of sunshine and summer up as much as you can before it's over. At this point in the year I always feel myself making memories as they happen and it's a bitter sweet feeling. The rest of my family is leaving today, but I have to work so I will be heading out at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning and picking up my boyfriend on the way there. It's about a four hour long drive (if I remember correctly) so tonight I plan on preparing by indulging in a bath filled with bath bombs and Lush Bubble Bars.
