Hello everyone. I can’t believe how fast the Summer flew by. I’m already a few days into the school year and so excited for fall now that I’ve said goodbye to Summer and my time away from school. I sat down and rounded up all of my favorites from August (as well as July since I didn’t post a monthly favorites last month.) I hope you all enjoy!
As far as footwear goes, I have been wearing my lace up shoes like it’s my job. i have three pair of sandals which are all from Target, two pairs of flats which are from Old Navy and Glicks, and one pair of espadrilles that I picked up from Forever 21. the lace up trend has been all the talk lately and I am in love with it. I love this style shoe because they can easily be transitioned into different seasons.
The elementary schooler in me is still in love with skirts. These too have been coming back in style which brings me s much happiness, as I love the denim and button front trend. The denim on the left was thrifted and is from the brand Mossimo, the right is from Kohls, and the denim on bottom is from Guess. These all look so cute with sandals and will pair perfectly with booties once fall is in full swing.
I honestly haven’t worn much makeup over the last two months because I have spent most of that time at the beach or at cheer practice. However, when I am reaching for makeup I have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade which so many of you have recommended to me. I got it in the color Blonde and am so in love with the way it so easily shapes and fills in my brows. I also strayed away from my holy grail Maybelline Matte Fit Me Foundation and reached for my Loreal Infallible foundation which seemed to be a bit more dry and works better during the hotter days. I also have been using this Revlon Liquid Lipstick which actually has a hint of color to it which is unusual for me. I love the finish of it.
I have been loving the draped pearls look this month and picked up this cheap pair from forever 21 for only $5. They look perfect with high neck tops and are a nice touch to a boring outfit. I’ve also been wearing my Boho Betty bracelet a bunch. Don’t forget you can get 15% off your order when you use the code “styledbymckenz”I also finished up my Pink body mist in the scent “Sunkissed” which was my summer scent. I’m sad to see it go, it smells amazing.
Throughout the last two months I finished Proverbs and Matthew. if you’re a Bible reader like me, I would definitely recommend reading the epilogue to Proverbs. Gb and I finished it together and it was easily one of the most beautiful set of verses I have ever read. I also enjoyed Psalm 37, Genesis 31, and Psalm 33. This month I have been shown first handily that God’s plan and love for us is so real. he works and He does what he knows will better us in the future. give him your questions and He will give you your answers.
As for TV I am slowly but surely making my way through One Tree Hill, I just started Season 7 and am so in love. for music I have been listening to Cherry Wine by Hozier, Like Real People Do by Hozier, I Found by Amber Run, Love In the Dark by Adele, and Come Home by One Republic.
Well that’s a wrap for today’s monthly favorites. I hope you all enjoyed. If you have any questions, comments, or requests please leave them below, I am happy to talk. Sending you all my love and happiness in the month to come. My thanks for you all is absolutely endless. With love, McKenz.
