Wear and Share Wednesday – mark. Love On The Lime Dress

Don’t call it a comeback… I’ve been here for years!  It’s been a little since our last wear and share Wednesday but Jackie from Living After Midnite and I are back!  And we couldn’t of picked a hotter summer dress to style two ways, the mark. Love On The Lime Dress ($44).

This mark. Love On The Lime dress is a lightweight dress in a crepe like fabric and zesty lime color is the perfect piece to wear the neon trend.  Neon has been on my summer wish list lately (as seen in my last post) and the mark. Love On The Lime dress is an easy way to go mega neon.  It’s draped top silhouette, adjustable belt and flirty hemline makes this dress a must-have for everything your summer entails from work to weddings to nights out!

Working Girl Wardrobe:  NEON

Working Girl Wardrobe: NEON

Sometimes its hard to update your working girl wardrobe with summer trends, especially a trend like neon, but its all about finding the right piece.  This dress is the right piece!  I can’t tell you how many compliments I got at the office!  The punchy color stands out but the shape keeps it appropriate.  And let me tell you, even on a 106 degree day this hot dress is surprisingly cool!

With such a bright color you don’t really need to do much to accessorize, just focus on the details.  I like anchoring neons with neutrals like black, white, nude, navy, etc…  Since I styled this for work I anchored it with black accents. The mark. Twist Of Lime Pumps were the PERFECT shoe!  The pointed toe styling works for the office and the twist of lime detailing on the straps keep it fun.  You can get the mark. Twist of Lime heels coming up on clearance for only $29.99!

My black accents are carried through my baubles as well!  The mark. Multi Mix Necklace couldn’t of been a better way to link the Twist of Lime Heels with the Love On The Lime dress!  It’s also on clearance right now for $14.99, but hurry only for a limited time!  Then I finished it off with a little arm party featuring my Kate Spade Idiom Bangle and mark. Sparkle In A Snap bracelet, and Avon Signture Watch and a nude clutch from Express.

I’m really loving the versatility of this look for summer!  Its really one hot look that I can see working with so many different accessories for so many different events.  I mean, just look how different Jackie’s look is with pink and nude accents over at Living After Midnite!  Like I said from work to weddings to nights out!  You’ll definitely get noticed in all the best ways and show of that summer tan!

Hot Summer Day To Night Look

Hot Summer Day To Night Look

On a hot summer day its so hard to look, and feel, cool.  The color is hot but the cool lightweight material definitely is a life saver.  There’s also no way I’m going to be able to complete the look with a blow out… that’s when the mark. That’s Beachy Texturizing Spray comes into play (last seen here).  On wet hair I just spray and scrunch and go!  My summer beauty look is just as easy, because you know you need to spend as little time as possible in that stuffy bathroom getting ready.  Use a neon purple shadow like mark. Neon Gaze in Violet Fever to line your top lash line with a thick line using a wet eyeliner brush in the shadow.  Follow it up with a thin black line using mark. No Place To Run eyeliner in Jet Set and full mascara like Avon Mega Effects.  A little bronze on the cheeks with mark. Island Beauty Pallet and coral on the lips with mark. Make It Rich Lip Crayon in Punch (on clearance for $6.99!) and you’ve got yourself a complete total look that’s nothing but hot for summer!

Wear and Share Wednesday – mark. Strappy Pretty Demi Wedges

Wear and Share Wednesday mark. by Avon Pretty Strappy Demi Wedges

It’s officially sandal season!  Nothing like slipping on a nice pair of strappy sandals to instantly make it feel like its time for summer and maybe a pedi!  Which is why for Wear and Share Wednesday, Jackie from Living After Midnite and I picked the neutral, shimmering, mark. Strappy Pretty Demi Wedges ($42) to base two different outfits around.

Wearing the mark. Strappy Pretty Demi Wedges

The mark. Strappy Pretty Demi Wedge are a neutral, shimmering, champaign sandal with gold accents with a zip back closure.  The demi heel makes them a little more chic than your typical flat gladiator style.  These are definitely one pair of sandals you could dress up or down and wear all season long.  If your packing for a trip, these are the only ones you’ll need for your shorts to your dresses!  They inspired me to do a super easy, casual outfit with a bit of pretty!

White Shorts, Tank, Kimono and Wedges

White Shorts, Tank, Kimono and Wedges

To go casual and pretty I started with my white basics, white denim shorts (Forever 21) and a white bra cami (Express).  To bring in the pretty I drapped on my mint chiffon kimono from H&M (a summer steal at only $14.95).  I love how this simple easy outfit is as versatile as the mark. Strappy Pretty Demi Wedges.  An outfit that would be perfect for running errands or lounging poolside on your summer vacation!

mark. Strappy Pretty Demi Wedges and Get Packing Tote

I definitely would count this outfit as a summer vacation must-have!  Especially paired with the mark. Get Packing Tote ($40).  Easy and neutral, but pretty with its pop of neon pink trimming.  The tote would be perfect as your carry on bag that you then could use as your shopper during your trip.

Easy Spring and Summer Outfit

Easy Spring and Summer Outfit

Even when you’re not on vacation this outfit is perfect for the weekend.  Weekender tote, with comfortable walking shoes, with an easy Spring/Summer outfit is definitely weekend attire!  I accessorized this look with a little bit of a boho vibe, with the easy weekend in mind.  I stacked the mark. Glimmer and Gleam Bracelet Set ($26) with mark. Mighty Pretty m.powerment bracelet ($25) for a boho arm party with my mint rubber watch and an aqua vintage mark. ring.

Boho Arm Party and Beach Waves

Continuing with the boho weekender vibe I went with beach waves in my hair! On damp hair I sprayed mark. That’s Beachy Texturizing Surf Spray ($14) all over then scrunched and let air dry.  Weekend hair couldn’t get any easier!

Easy Breezy Look with mark.

To finish off any vacation look you need a pair of sunglasses!  I’m wearing the Get In The Shade Sunglasses (last seen here).  Which, until May 15th you can get for ONLY $5 with any $20 purchase from the mark.

Your Summer Vacation Must-Haves

I absolutely LOVE that summer is JUST around the corner.  Which also means its time to start planning your summer vacation!  If you’ve been following my posts for the last 2 weeks you’ll notice I’ve been highlighting pieces from the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts collection (last seen here), so let’s pretend I’m planning a real vacation to Saint Barts.  There are a few must haves from the collection that are needed for any summer travel regardless of the destination.  Here are my top 3 must haves for your summer vacation:

1.  mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24).

mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24)

mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case ($24)

If you’re anything like me when packing its about fitting as much as possible and bringing as many multitasking items as possible.  The mark. Glam and Roll Jewelry Case solves both those issues.  Pack all your jewelry in its 3 zippered pockets, 1 slip pocket and along the necklace/earring bar, then roll it up!  The compacted case fits nicely in your bag and keeps you organized.  MULTITASKER:  The jewelry roll can then double up as a clutch once you get to your destination!

2.  mark. Get Packing Tote

mark. Get Packing Tote ($40)

mark. Get Packing Tote ($40)

The mark. Get Packing Tote is just what you need for your carry on bag or overnight bag.  Its roomy so you can pack a lot, and I mean a lot!, but it has sturdy and comfortable straps for lugging it around.  But on top of all that its a really good looking bag!  The neutral camel faux leather is really nice in quality and the pops of pink neon around the trim, studs and tie details give it a luxe look so you can also look like a chic jet-setter!  MULTITASKER:  Use this bag as your beach bag, shopper tote and/or just as your purse when you get to your destination.

3.  mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets ($16 each)

Beautiful sunwashed eye shades and bronzy goodness!

mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty Pallets ($16)

Who wants to haul a bunch of makeup when traveling?  That’s when a good pallet is really important, one that will give you a ton of looks from one case!  I’ve already reviewed and sung my praises on the mark. Island Eyes and Island Beauty pallets here, but on a trip these are really all you would need to bring, plus the slim design makes them really travel friendly!  MULTITASKER:  The mark. Island Beauty Face Pallet is a bronzer, blush and highlight all in one!  The mark. Island Eyes pallet contains the perfect shades to go neutral and beachy or bold and smokey!

BONUS MUST HAVE!  Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard

Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard (pic cred’s to Erica Gerlemann!)

Word Of Alicia Review: mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

Scent is such a personal thing.  For me a certain scent can bring back major memories, instantly make me happy or at the other end of the spectrum gross me out or give me a headache.  Needless to say ordering a new scent online is almost a pointless activity. Unless you know what to look for.  Historically I like clean scents that are light and fresh.  Which is why for the past 4 years the favorite perfumes in my collection are all from the mark. Instant Vacation collections.  Knowing that I’ve liked so many of their past scents when mark. released the Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil fragrance duo I knew I was going to take a chance and order it without smelling it.  It did not disappoint.

mark. Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray $24

mark. Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray $24

Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray is described as a luxe blend of fresh, breezy Caribbean waters; rich, exotic coconut milk and bold beautiful frangipani flower takes your senses on a journey to a glam island resort.  Paired with the eau de toilette spray is the Saint Barts Soleil Shimmering Body Lotion.  Inspired by the shimmering waters and silky sands of Saint Barts, this hydrating luminizer leaves your skin with a radiant glow and a wisp of the Saint Barts Soleil fragrance.  Layer under the eau de toilette spray for a luxurious, total-scent experience.

Layer mark. Saint Barts Shimmering Lotion under the Eau De Toilette Spray for Extra Staying Power

Layer mark. Saint Barts Shimmering Lotion under the Eau De Toilette Spray for Extra Staying Power

Personally this is right up my ally.  If you are familiar with past mark. Instant Vacation releases, its like a  combo of the Marrakesh scent mixed with the original Instant Vacation scent.  I adore anything coconut and this gives just the right amount of it to not smell like you just applied Hawaiian Tropic (which by the way I also really enjoy).  Its sophisticated enough for all ages and just like I like fresh, clean and light, like a summer fragrance should be.  Because it is a Eau De Toilette I do re-apply hours later if its going to be a long 15 hour type of day.  The shimmering lotion is the same formula as the past mark. Hamptons lotion but obviously with this new scent.  Its not as moisturizing as my typical Whipped Up Body Butter I use daily, but as a nice, light lotion it works.  The shimmer isn’t glittery but a nice, well, shimmer.  I really like it on my legs.  And just like any other fragrance duos layering helps the staying power.  At $24 for the Eau De Toilette Spray and $14 for the Shimmering Lotion this is a super affordable duo.  You can get them at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Word Of Alicia Review:  My new go-to must have scent.  At a super affordable price point I won’t mind wearing it everyday and everywhere.  The shimmer lotion is just a summer must have in general but also having this killer scent is win win.  Not to strong for work/day but intense enough to wear out at night.  Definitely a scent that instantly takes me to a warm summery happy place.  Shop the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray and Shimmering Body Lotion at my eBoutique.

On a vacation I could pack this one dress and get 3 different looks.  The Change Your Ways Dress is a convertible dress with a cotton tube top and a satin printed bottom which you can wear the tube at full length for a midi dress, fold it in half for a mini dress or wear as a skirt.  The gorgeous swirl and abstract palm leaf pattern instantly calls thoughts of shimmering waters of Saint Barts.

mark. Island Elegance Maxi for Wear and Share Wed

Bon Voyage!  Jackie from Living After Midnite and I are taking an instant vacation to Saint Barts for wear and share Wednesday!  It may be just a normal Wednesday and we might just be doing our normal Wednesday activities but when you slip into this hi-low dress from the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts capsule collection you’re instantly transported to vaca mode on the French island!  We both took the mark. Island Elegance Maxi Dress ($44) and styled it two ways!

mark. Island Elegance Maxi Dress

mark. Island Elegance Maxi Dress

The mark. Island Elegance Maxi dress has plenty of interest with its chain detail neckline and beachy pattern in swirls of ocean blues, greens and sandy golds.  So it really comes down to how you accessorize it.  I wore this look on Easter so I wanted to dress it up pretty and lady like and fit for spring.  (yes, yes I know, I was supposed to wear the Royal Pretty Dress but this came the Friday before and I just HAD TO!)

Arm Party with mark. Glimmer and Gleam Bracelets and Avon Signature Watch

Like I said the pattern on this dress is pretty much all you need but I created an arm party that pulled in the those same blues and sandy golds with the mark. Glimmer and Gleam Bracelet Set ($26) also from the Saint Barts capsule collection and Avon Signature Watch ($69.99).  I loved how this dress just flows and blows in the breeze and with my bangle jangle I definitely felt pretty and lady like.

What’s an Easter look without a hat!?!  My Brooks Brothers hat in royal blue was the perfect match to this dress.  I love how Jackie and I both accented in dazzling blue (the color of spring as shown here here and here!)  With a big hat like this one, usually your earrings get lost, but not these extra large gold hoops with chain detail in the mark. Hang With Me Earrings ($20).  They were the perfect pair to complete the look.  I finished off my look with white lace pumps from Shoedazzle (old) and a beauty look created with the Island Eyes Shadow Pallet ($16) and Island Beauty Face Compact ($16) — which I reviewed in my last post!
