What I’m Loving Wednesday: Summer Beauty & Fashion Edition

Like I said a few weeks ago, take any and all beauty product recommendations from me with a grain of salt. My daily routine consists of an exfoliating face wash & moisturizer (twice a day) and very minimal make up. The same goes for fashion. I pretty much live in jeans or gym shorts and t-shirts. For some reason, I’m caring a little bit more this summer, so here are some products I’m loving right now.

This Betsey Johnson dress is so pretty & feminine. And currently $118 at Nordstrom. I wish I had seen this earlier. I’d love to wear this to the wedding I’m going to this weekend.

I also love this $88 Maia dress (also from Nordstrom). White & navy are my colors, and I love the simplicity of this.

I love this Eliza J dress, that’s currently on sale for $83.

This silk Kate Spade dress, like every other dress I’ve posted is also at Nordstrom is just my style. It’s simple, pretty & at $428 is a liiiiiittle out of my price range.

These shorts from Old Navy are amazing. Last summer I literally bought nine pair of them, so I’m glad they’ve come out with a few more colors this year. They’re inexpensive & crazy comfortable. And, they have slightly larger leg openings, which is really helpful for a girl with larger thighs. Even when I was much skinnier, I never wore shorts because I’ve always had bigger thighs, so shorts that have larger openings and aren’t tight against my legs are pretty much heaven-sent to me.

And either I’m a moron, or Target’s website just isn’t very user-friendly, but I’m obsessed with this maxi dress. I’ve already bought two of them (the gray one that’s badly pictured and a solid black one). They’re insanely comfortable, so cute with a denim jacket & sandals, and only $30! (And right now there’s a cartwheel deal to get 20% off!)

Love. Love. Love. these sandals. I’m all about wedges, and I love the straps on these, and the color of the leather. At $70, they’re also a really, really great price!

I am also loving these BCBGeneration wedges (also from Nordstrom). I love them so much, I actually bought these. They should be here today, and I’m very, very excited about them!

Since I also live in flip-flops during the summer, I am fanatical that my toes are always perfectly painted (I spend a lot of money on pedicures during the summer… It’s unfair how a professional pedicure lasts 2ish weeks, and one done at home chips after a few days). A few weeks ago Christina posted about this Essie nail color that is pretty much the perfect shade of blue. I chose that color for my most recent pedicure, and I LOVE it! I typically like to bring my own nail colors with me to the salon, so on my last Ulta visit I picked that one up, as well as these three:

sittin-pretty
Sittin’ Pretty

mint_candy_apple
Mint Candy Apple

bikini_so_teeny
Bikini So Teeny

(And right now Ulta has a special going on, where if you buy two bottles of nail polish, you get a free bottle of an Essie topcoat; an $8.50 value.)

So what items are you loving this summer?
