5 Dress Trends that will have you summer ready // ft.Dresslily

Hi Lovelies,

At how many dresses do you stop and tell yourself “enough is enough” I ask this question every season and still when summer comes around, I find myself scrolling through yet another shopping rabbit hole trying to decide mini or long, body con or flair, pastel or black (Always Black) well this summer I plan to stick to these staple dress trends that will not only give variety but keep you ahead of the fashion curb.

When it comes to fashion, summer is the best time to play around with your style and since layering is not in the cards for most, staple pieces paired with some playful accessories and shades will balance out the perfect outfit for the books. Bold patterns, animal print, bright colors, polka dots, sleeveless dress, puffy sleeves, and corsets are all the rave, if you leave this post without one of these trends in mind, just remember animal print is the way.

This summer is meant to explore your sense of style and try new looks, these are just some suggestions to get started. I rounded a few shoppable looks from Dresslily, that are totally affordable and the epitome of the season’s hottest trends.

Print Dresses

Floral Leaf Ruffle Wrap Dress

Floral, animal print, polka dots, feathers, whatever the pattern printed dresses are always a must, not just for the summer but any season for that matter. I chose this floral, leaf print wrap dress, for under $30. For the summer printed dresses can be easily paired with other contrasting patterns and colors and don’t be afraid to go crazy with the boldest of accessories,shoes, and jewelry its the summer have FUN!

Lace Up Dresses

Floral Lace Skater Dress

Lace is definitely considered the “one woman show” of all patterns, many wouldn’t think to wear lace as a go-to summer print because it’s an occasional print, but bold colors and prints can change this to the perfect outfit. I recently looked at the selection of laced up dresses on the dresslily website and they have a ton to choose from, but this dress I chose is the perfect summertime dress, skater dresses are easy to dress up or down;you could wear sandals, heels, or sneakers– the thing about lace is that you can still be chic but with a hint of rebel or sass! This dress is under $40

Florals

Ruffle Hem Cinched Crop Top and Maxi Skirt

Of course floral print is the obvious choice of the summer; flowers are very colorful; and feminine giving you the option to play with lots of jewelry or no jewelry, heels or flats, statement bag or clutch, there are endless possibilities when it comes to this print. Now here’s a statement piece you’ll want in your closet This floral 2-piece is under $30 and is statement piece on it’s own, add a few pieces of jewelry and some wedged sandals = perfect instagram feed.

Dresses for Curves

Ladder Cut Open Shoulder Fitted Dress

Body con dresses are the perfect dresses to show off curves; and you can dress them up just as easy. This off the shoulder knee length dress is only $26.

Sleeveless Dresses

Sheer Embroidered Sleeveless Trapeze Dress

Sleeveless dresses are bound to be the go-to of the summer. I chose this embroidered tank dress that is under $20 now this is definitely a steal when it comes to deals. When it comes to tank dresses you can easily layer it with other items of clothing and play with this simple look and make it a show stopper, or if you’re a minimalist ( like me) you’ll wear it as is, and add some chunky sneakers & jewelry.

25mm Mink Hair lashes |Premium Hair Collection *Extra AF*

Hi Loves,

As a fellow beauty lover I feel like you can never have enough lashes, they just complete the look, and set the difference between dramatic & subtle. Recently I had the chance to work with premium hair collection and try 2 of their lash styles, one being 25mm lashes & the other a 3d mink lash, obviously I automatically said yass to the task, and the styles surpassed my expectations.

The first lash style I got to try was the 25mm lash style named “September” these lashes are so beautiful, they complement any look adding a sense of dramatics.. These lashes are amazing the lashes itself are soft; and completely natural, also the band is completely flexible making it super easy to apply on the lid. When it comes to lashes, I know doubt can be a bit obsessive and these lashes are a great addition to the collection.

The next pair is a 3d mink lash hair style named “Dubai” to say the least, these are the more subtle of the two.. The lash hairs are soft, and wispy, giving the lash look an au natural look, I favor these lashes a lot, because they can be worn daily, also they sit comfortably on the lid, without feeling like there’s a huge palm tree on the eyes ( you know the lashes I’m talm bout). The flexibility of the lash band makes the application a lot easier and quicker.

I did a little 90’s inspired makeup look to show off the lashes! Hope you enjoyed this post, If you want to see more of this content, Like and comment if you love lashes as much as I do.


New Lash Subscription Box // Embelashes + Review

Hi Loves,  

So recently I had the opportunity to work with Embelash, which is a high quality lash subscription box that provides you with the best handmade lashes possible, so when I got the chance to try these lashes I said a quick yes. Joining Embelashes gives you the chance to try a various amount of lashes based off your monthly subscription; ranging from 2 pairs for $15 to 6 lashes monthly for $35.

When I got my box, I was super excited about the subscription; I received 2 pair of selected lashes + a free eyelash glue all in which was $15. The choice lashes were super pretty, for anyone who’s into makeup, lash obsessed, or oddly just like receiving packages in the mail this is the subscription for you. This is an auto renewal monthly subscription, so every month you’ll get a random selection of handmade lashes and if you choose to cancel there is no penalty fee. I received 2 pairs of mink lashes ( reign + dreamy) the lashes “reign” are a more subtle look compared to the “dreamy” lashes which are more dramatic. I really like these sets of lashes, the band width is flexible and easy to adjust for application.

The Embelash glue adhesive comes with the order of lashes, the adhesive comes with a brush applicator, and though there are tons of lash glues w/ different brands, this glue comes on clear, and dries significantly fast. I really like this glue I can compare it with the duo lash glue; which works wonders. When applying lashes I put the glue on my lid first, my lashes are extremely long; and curled, so this just makes lashes so much easier, trying to apply lashes on with the glue still wet is a mess; so allow the glue to dry this allows the glue to get tacky ( in a good way) and makes applying lashes super fast + easy.

Overall I love this lash box and the selection of luxe lashes are amazing!


I hope you enjoyed this post! I want to thank Embelashes for gifting me my first box to try; also if you want to sign up — CLICK HERE — sign up to receive a free lash glue with your first month subscription.

Valentine’s Day Style Guide

Hi Loves,

Valentine’s Day! A day that shares in giving chocolates, teddy bears, and love for the significant other in your life, personally the only love I have love for other than the unconditional love for family, is netflix and personal chocolates brought by me, given to me, but in the midst of the national holiday I will share in the gift of style. Valentine’s Day is not the traditional holiday when it pertains to fashion, it has evolved into a variety of styles, so whether you are into the classic dress for date night or totally edgy, I have provided a few choices to help with your decision making process.

The traditional style for valentine’s day has always been varied into wearing pink or red, a dress, and a pair of heels, but modern day style guides, literally everywhere have provided other options that can keep the theme of Valentine’s but not make it so obvious. The styles that I decided to choose were to show a range of styles that play with color, pattern, and length. We heard of the infamous little black dress, or lbd for short, I have a dress that shifts the lbd, to a bit more playful, the polka dot knee-length dress I picked from Missguided shows that this style doesn’t have to be matronly but more chic + modern. The polka dot print plays at different mediums, and can easily dressed up with dainty jewelry to set the look off. All the dresses provided are under $50, so if you’re looking for something inexpensive, yet good quality this would be the looks.
