Hot Or Not: Overalls (Thoughts and Styling)

Good morning everybody! Today I decided to start a “Hot or Not” series where I share my thoughts and opinions on certain seasonal trends and give you a couple outfit ideas. today i am styling overalls which are super popular for Spring and the upcoming Summer season. I love Overalls because they are practically an outfit in itself and can easily be dressed up or down. They are obviouly not everyones style but I like them a lot. These overalls were my moms from about ten years ago that  she saved in case they ever came back into style and I wanted them. i;m so glad she did cause I love them! Here’s how I styled them:

{overalls- Gap, shirt- American Eagle, shoes- TJ Maxx}

I love this outfit because it’s casual yet so cute. I could wear this to school or any day in the summer. I paired my black Birkenstocks for a laid back vibe and they coordinate perfectly with my black and white striped shirt.

{overalls- Gap, shirt- Hollister, shoes- Pierre Dumas, watch- Kate Spade}

Don’t be fooled everyone, you can dress up overalls too! I paired this simple off the shoulder white top which is also super in this season with my white Jacks. I threw on some gold jewelry and ended up looking nice and put together!

I hope you all enjoyed this short, simple post. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please leave them below. Don;t forget to check out my last post and follow me on Instagram @StyledByMcKenz. Have a great day; with love, McKenz.

Weekly Wrap Up

Weekly Wrap Up #15

Happy Sunday everyone! This past week was our first week back from Spring Break and it felt so good to see everyone again but so bad to hear my alarm going off at six in the morning. With the school play in less than three weeks, the school year quickly approaching it’s end, and supporting my best friends; time seems to be flying and my free time seems to be lessening. Wouldn’t trade it for the world though. The other day i was looking through an old journal and found the quote “Surround yourself with those who see greatness in you even when you don’t see it yourself” written down. These words really opened up my eyes and allowed me to analyze the people in my life. To all my friends and family reading this, I can’t thank you enough for everything, you guys rock my world!! Wishing you nothing but love and happiness this week. If you missed this weeks log posts: March favorites- click here, Hunter&Honey Haul- click here, and Makeup of The Week- click here. With love, McKenz.

Makeup Of The Week

Happy Friday everyone. Outfit of the weeks are some of my favorite posts to read and YouTube videos to watch. It occurred to me the other day that although my love for makeup is almost identical as it is to fashion, I’ve never thought to share with you all my makeup of the week. As you could imagine, I was ecstatic when I thought of this idea which is why I took pictures of my makeup every day this week and am here to share with you what I wore on my face this week! I hope you all enjoy. If you missed Wednesday’s post, click here. With love, McKenz.

Hunter&Honey Haul

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! Today I am going to be hauling some of the items that I have gotten from Hunter&Honey recently. They are a small business that specializes in monogram decals, party good, apparel, gifts, signs, home decor, and paintings. They have the cutest designs and take custom orders as well. If you’re interested in their stuff visit there Facebook page here and their Instagram here.


I love graphic tees because they can easily be dressed up or down. I love pairing them with ripped skinny jeans and booties! I chose the “shopping is my cardio” and “blogging>jogging”. They are both so adorable and I am so pleased with both of them.

I also received this personalized apron. if you’ve been keeping up with my previous posts than you would know I’m the makeup artist for my schools play. I am so excited to wear this apron when doing peoples makeup and this navy and gold metallic pocket tee. It’s boyfriend style which is extra cute too!

Lastly I got a new monogram for my case. I chose to get a matte white background with a matte black vine monogram. I love the way this looks it’s classy and cute. Btw I accidentally nicked my case with my keys yesterday, no worries, the product did not come like that!


That is it for my Hunter&Honey haul. I hope you all enjoyed, I am so in love with all the things I received. Don’t forget to check them out on Instagram and Facebook, the links are above! Have a great day. With love, McKenz.

March Favorites

Hello everyone. Today I am going to be sharing with you my March Favorites. Time doesn’t seem to want to slow down. I can’t believe I joined the blogging world three months ago and am so happy with what I have accomplished in that time. I personally am not a fan of March because it seems to be half way Winter and half way Spring. On the plus side we only had one snow fall this month which I was so happy about! Anyways, let’s get on into the post. Have a great day, with love, McKenz.

Fashion Favorites:

This month I constantly found myself reaching for my black high top Converse and these fake white Jack rogers which I got from Amazon; they’re the brand Pierre Dumas. I love sandals but always struggle transitioning out of boots and into them! Does anyone else have this problem?  I also haven’t been carrying around a purse as much as I normally would this month. I’ve been just using my Vera Bradley wallet in my favorite color which is attached to my Vineyard Vines lanyard.

Beauty Favorites:

I have been in love with Bare Minerals lip products lately, I love their Marvelous Moxie lipglosses and their Buxom lip pencils. I’ve been reaching for glitter so much lately. I love the way this gold Wet N Wild glitter looks when paired with a maroon/gold eye look using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. I’ve also been so obsessed with the Warm Vanilla Sugar perfume from Bath and Body Works. I love this scent and have used it for years. I realized today that I never mentioned it here!

Hair Favorites:

I have super thin hair and this month I discovered that blow drying my hair and then straightening it makes it look so much more full and voluminous. I usually don’t wash my hair everyday so this leaves my hair looking good for more than one day.

Other Favorites:

This month I’ve been loving “The Scientist” by Coldplay, “Sunday Candy” by Chance The Rapper, “Good Life” by One Republic, and “Below My Feet” from Mumford and Sons. I did not finish a book this month but I am in the midst of reading “An Abundance of Katherines” by John Green and love it! Also I have been spending so much time talking to God this month. If you haven’t read Proverbs, I would highly recommend it along with Psalms 100!
