Week O’Nautical – LDW 2020

Happy Labor Day!! Labor Day Weekend is always a bit bittersweet for a lot of reasons. It is the end, but also the begining. The end of summer, the unofficial begining of fall. It’s also the anniversary of moving to California, so end of PA begining of CA. 2020 is no exception, a bit bittersweet with a new begining for me and new opportunities. What’s better for a celebration of new beginings than day sequins!

What’s black and white and red all over? A Zebra with a sunburn! Or a newspaper… however you want to end that joke. Either way a black and white striped shirt is today’s wear and share Wednesday piece!

The Avon striped Tie-Front Top is really a causal t-shirt like top with different directional stripes (which is totally on trend!)  This top is chic and classic just worn with shorts or jeans but I wanted to dress it up a little with a black skort, pumps and pearls!

NEW Cushion Makeup - FMG Love Cushion Bronzer, Blush and Highlight

NEW Cushion Makeup – FMG Love Cushion Bronzer, Blush and Highlight

All you need with a black and white outfit is a simple bold lip and a great bronzed makeup look.  I’m wearing the new FMG Cushion bronzer, blush and hightlight!  I even used the bronzer as my transition shade and the highlighter all over my lid.  Super simple and glowy makeup for summer.  On my lips is the Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipstick in Driven.

I’m not the only one loving this top!  Check out the different ways Sealaura wore this same top! You can wear and share this top yourself by shopping it at the eBoutique!

Week O’Nautical – Candy Paint

Week O’Nautical – Candy Paint

I hope everyone’s July 4th was sparkling!  Week O’Nautical was in full sail last week over on FB/IG but its sailing on here over on ze blog and the sails are candy painted!  I took everyone’s favorite yellow dress and week o’nautical’ed it with some candy colors.

Avon Ribbed Faux Wrap Dress

Avon Ribbed Faux Wrap Dress

The Avon Ribbed Faux Wrap Dress has been a hot item for summer.  It looks good on every shape and size, has on-trend ribbing in a light-weight fabric perfect for hot heat and its only $36!  The summer fun yellow color is stunning on its own but I wanted to make it even more fun with some candy colors.

Candy Colors

Candy Colors

I paired this dress with a light blue and white striped button down from Old Navy.  It had vibes of the boardwalk and cotton candy so I thought why not add in even more with the Avon Statement Stones jewelry collection.  The pastel stones were the perfect candy colored adornment to top it all off.

Not sure if you noticed but wrap up sandals are pretty hot for summer!  I picked up this white pair from Shoedazzle.  They actually have a pretty small heel so they are actually really wearable.  I’m still on the hunt for a nude pair that I love, maybe a taller heel or even a flat, but I’m a sucker for anything that wraps around the ankle.  

Ankle Wrap Sandals for Summer

Ankle Wrap Sandals for Summer

I totally am getting boardwalk vibes with this look.  Now I just  funnel cake, cotton candy and a corn dog!  I really like the idea of tying a button down over a dress for a totally different look on a simple summer dress.  I can see this blue and white striped top layered a number of items in my closet, and vice vesra, I can see layering a lot of different options with this dress.  Even as we tranisiton into fall, this dress would be adorable with warm colors anchored with blacks instead of whites.

You can shop the Avon Ribbed Faux Wrap Dress and the Avon Statement Stones jewelry collection over at my eBoutique.  This dress is one of those versatile pieces you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again, its just so easy to wear.  Believe me when I say it flatters pretty much everyone!

Week O’Nautical – Cool Silver

Week O'Nautical - Cool Silver

Week O’Nautical – Cool Silver

Are you a silver or a gold person!? Just like everything else, it depends on my mood and what vibe I’m going for, but overall I’m both. I tend to lean towards silver more often… its cool and chic, just like today’s Week O’Nautical OOTD!  Week O’Nautical = Counting down to the holiday weekend wearing anything that fits into the red white and blue theme with a loosely nautical feel, key word being loosely.

Pencil Skirt for today's OOTD

Pencil Skirt for today’s WoN OOTD

I knew I wanted to wear this red pencil skirt to work today (Express, old).  It’s the perfect summer red and really since I’ve been back to the office I really haven’t worn my pencil skirts.  It has this silver disc detailing at the belt and that’s what insipred me to carry that cool silver throughout. 

Avon Summer Statement Metal Jewelry in Silver

I just got this Avon Summer Statements Stretch Bracelet (that I can’t stop wearing!) but it has the same hammered disc details that the skirt has so I was like, yep, wearing that.  Also released with the bracelet as part of our summer fashion release, are these Avon Summer Statements Hoop Earrings, that I’m also wearing non-stop!  Both of these go with EVERYTHING and they do come in both silver and gold… I, of course, got them in both tones.  When something is so classic, versatile and on trend you just have to go for both!  

Matching Silver Hammered Metal Details

What also stood out to me was this old mark. ring with silver and turquoise, so I had to wear it today too.  But what top could pull these all together, a ruffled chambray top!  Cool, chic, layed back, and maybe a little fitting to watch Yellowstone that’s saved on my DVR later.

Cool and Chic

Cool and Chic

You know what else is cool and chic… my summer bag!  I’m obsessed.  This Dooney and Bourke Wayfarer Nylon Tote with Accessories from QVC.  It is the perfect summer work bag, perfect!  The Italian nylon is so lightweight and easy to care for, the tan handles make it casual for summer and the red detailing on the zipper… swoon!  

Ultimate Summer Work Bag

I’m digging my look today.  I haven’t been too excited about outfits lately, and this one is changing my mind.  It feels more like me, it has a theme, and its cool and chic.

Well 2020 has been, uh, fun… so far. I’m glad to welcome in summer though as today is the first day of Summer!!!  Not sure if I’ll get to do all my fav summer activities or take any summer trips but I do know there will be hot weather regardless!  And one thing I have learned is how to battle the hot 100 degree days we get here in Nor Cal, and that’s with a summer dress!

Dressing Up A Day Dress

Summer dresses have to be easy to wear, a one and done item that is super versatile!  The Avon Tie-Dye Swing dress is exactly that.  Super fun summer colors with orange, coral, pink, white on a super easy to wear swing style, aka won’t stick and cling to you.  It is a very lightweight fabric, like a slinky t-shirt kind of feel.

This dress is SO versatile.  I mean its handsdown the perfect dress to pop over a swim suit as a cover up but it can also be worn as a darling day dress or for a hot summer night dinning al fresca!

For the first day of summer I punched it up with even more color adding a coral denim jacket (Old Navy, old) coral heels (Shoedazzle) and coral jewelry (that same Avon Raffia Collection I’ve worn in my last 3 posts… obiv obsessed).  If you couldn’t tell I’ve also been color crushing on coral.

Return To Work Wear

Anyone else gone back to work after working from home for months? Its a transition right!?  I could not figure out what to wear, nothing looked good on me or fit quite right (quarantine 15 is real folks)! As much as I love my structured work wear pieces I haven’t been in that mindset for months.  Then I realized why don’t I just dress up my comfy casual pieces for my RTW wear!

Styling Tee Shirts for Work

Styling Tee Shirts for Work

All my spring purchases were casual pieces, like this Avon Multi Stripe Tee Pack – 4 easy to wear pocket t-shirts for $34.99.  These are my favorite tee shirts!  I get them every season they release them.  They’re also easily dressed up for work!  I’ve worn them here on the blog MANY of times… like here.  For today’s look I’m wearing the tan tee from the Multi Stripe Tee Pack.

Black and Tan

Black and Tan

Black and Tan is more than an Yeuling beer… its a great color pairing!  I paired my tan tee with a black knit skirt (also no stranger to the blog see here).  Both are more casual pieces but the color pairing is a little more sophisticated for work.

Remixing my Rafia Jewelry

Since I’ve been LIVING in my raffia jewelry from Avon, I thought I’d play it up a little differently with these chandelier earrings and beaded bracelets that have similar tones as raffia necklace and bracelet.  The combination was perfect!  Neutral and relaxed but a little glam and dressy to finish out my look.  (Earrings and bracelets launch June 23rd at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)

Neutral and Relaxed

It’s also in the 90’s today so having something comfortable and breathable to wear to work is a must.  I definitely will wear this look again, and again, and again!  You know what else I’m loving, the new Senses line from Avon.  The bath and body line got a major glow up with new and improved formulas, packaging, and scents!  This Cozy Vanilla & Coconut scent not only matches my outfit but is scrumptious!  I need a good lotion especially this time of year and these guys did not dissapoint.

Week O’Nautical – Summer Whites

Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer.  It’s also the unofficial kickoff to wearing your summer whites!  Nothing says summer more than a white tee and denim.  The classic pairing goes Week O’Nautical… loosely… there’s a red white and blue combo in there 😉

Fresh Summer Whites

All white everything — White tee, white bag, white slides.  

Eyelet Lace Sleeve White Tee

Eyelet Lace Sleeve White Tee

This Eyelet Lace Sleeve Tee from Express has a slight puff to its lace sleeve and its so freaking adorable and on trend.  Very lightweight and the perfect length to wear untucked or tucked.  I’ve been seeing this trend for spring/summer and I just love the idea of a clean white tee with these details and denim.  I’ll be pairing this with jean shorts as the weather heats up.

What trends do you love for the late spring?  What are you loving as we’re more home these days?  This Everyday Cover Up Sweater has been my FAVORITE thing as of late.  I throw this on in the morning while things are still chilly, or while I’m lounging on the couch in the evening.  Its SO SOFT and just easy to wear — I already said all of this in my last post, oops.  Its that good!

I followed Jen Atkin’s 90’s Curl Tutorial — and here’s what I got!

Do you follow Jen Atkin on IG? Because you should. Not only is she an industry leader (everyone from Jen Aniston – Kardashians) but she’s super adorable and down to earth. I saw this tutorial as her ‘rona stay at home content and thought, looks easy enough, let’s try it!

Jen Atkin's IG TV Tutorial

Jen Atkin’s IG TV Tutorial

First of all I just got my new CHI hairdryer, from my eStore. YES AVON! Avon is now carrying CHI tools and I started with the one I use the most, a hairdryer. A quality tool not only gives you a better style, it treats your hair better. Seriously, invest in one. Secondly, I never used the diffuser that came with any hairdryer I’ve ever had. I didn’t know what it was for, and then I learned it was for curly hair, which I don’t have. BUT after watching her tutorial I was like OOOOOOH.  

Used my new CHI Advanced Ionic Hair Dryer from AVON

I didn’t have the products she used but I did use the CHI Essentials Thermal spray, and mouse and gel I had already (old mark. products).  Like I said I used my new CHI Advanced Compact Ionic Hairdryer with the diffuser attachment.  

Finally!  A use for that diffuser tool

Finally! A use for that diffuser tool

I LOVE my hair!  Super easy to do, turned out great and def getting use out of that attachment I had no clue how to use.  Def doing this again!  This hairstyle not only hides the fact that I need a haircut and my roots done, but it really showcases my highlights!

Success!  Will def do this again... and wear this sweater again, and again, and again!

Success! Will def do this again… and wear this sweater again, and again, and again!

Also can we have a moment for the ultimate stay at home item, the Avon Everyday Coverup.  I have been LIVING IN THIS.  Its the perfect weight to actually keep you warm but not bulky and heavy like a winter cardi.  Its ribbed and super soft so it looks modern.  I just LOVE it.  And with a white tee, leggings and a turquoise horn necklace… done!  I’m debating ordering a 2nd just to have when this one gets worn out, because it will.  Shop this cardigan, necklace and CHI hairdryer at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger
