How I plan on staying bronze all year + Mint Julep Dress

I think we all feel a little better when we are tan, or at least I know I do! I just refuse to get in a tanning bed or lay out in the sun 24/7 to achieve a good tan though, because I don’t want to damage my skin. And it can cause wrinkles too...No thank you! I’ve tried so many different self tanners and lotions from higher price to cheap ones. Some of them have worked pretty well, but they all seem to have a weird smell that I just can't deal with! BUT I finally found one that I love and it doesn’t give you that terrible spray tan smell.  

It’s called Liquid Sunshine and its by LimeLight. The name is perfect because it really is sunshine in a bottle haha!  And no, I’m not just supporting this because I sell it, but because I really do love it and use it all the time. My favorite part about this bronzer is that it doesn’t leave you orange like most, and it doesn’t streak or leave lines no matter how you apply it. And the best part is no smell! All you have to do is wash your hands after applying and you are good to go.

For these pictures, I applied 2 light coats. The great thing about this is you can apply as many coats as you want depending on how tan/bronze you want to look. I’m really pale so the max I apply is 2 coats so I don’t look crazy! The price is great too! Its only $28 dollars and will last you for several months. Feel free to email me if you’re interested in trying it out at or click here!

Now on to the outfit! I was so excited when The Mint Julep Boutique reached out to me to do a collaboration. Their clothing is super cute and so affordable, which is perfect for my wallet. I couldn't wait to wear this adorable maxi dress that is super lightweight and great for any summer outing. And because I love any dress that has pockets! The bold vibrant print is also great, and is something that I have been loving! You can also dress this maxi up or down, and it is so versatile. You could also transition it to fall by throwing on a lightweight jacket. So many options! If you sign up for emails on their website you will save $10 on your first order! 

Hope everyone is having a great week! We are almost to the weekend!

Fun & Floral

Hey hey! It’s Wednesday again which means we are halfway to the weekend 💃🏼 and of course another outfit post! All of my posts lately have been strictly outfit looks, so I want to change it up a little and throw in some beauty and lifestyle posts. I’m thinking of doing easy makeup routines, my current skincare, favorite beauty products, etc. So be on the lookout for those!

Today, I’m taking on the summer trend of styling prints. These red floral pants make me want to be on an island, but unfortunately I’m stuck inside at my desk. Boo! For this look, I kept it simple and paired these printed shorts with a white tank, but I think it would look so cute with a striped shirt to mix it up. Mixing patterns is something I want to try asap, but the back of this tank is just too cute not to share with you guys! I love the cross back detail, but know that it can be tricky to find the right bra to wear with these types of shirts. The trick is definitely a sticky bra LOL and is a must have to go under lots of summer shirts! I got mine and Target and it has lasted forever. To make this outfit even better everything I'm wearing is on sale! The tank is only $8, shorts are $12 and the sandals are $13! That's and entire outfit for under $35...told ya I shop on a budget!

And how about these red lips? The LimeLight enduring lip colors go on so smoothly and don’t run (like most red lipsticks). This one is called Cherry Pie 💄

Hope everyone has a fun week and weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Summer Look

Happy Wednesday guys! Hope everyone had a great 4th and long holiday weekend. I went home and sat on the beach all weekend and it was greatest ☀️ It has been super hot here in Charlotte (currently 95 degrees today) so I’ve been living in shorts and tanks, which brings me to this adorable outfit. This light denim tank matches everything, but I loved it paired with a pop of color and these pink J-Crew shorts just scream summer! The J-Crew Factory Outlet has these shorts in all colors for $19. The ruffles on the straps of this top make it so unique and is why I had to have it. Unfortunately, it is sold out but I’ve linked a similar one below. Also, how cute is this bag? If you haven’t been to a Coach outlet, then you’re missing out! I got this purse for $60 when its originally close to $200. They run really great sales all the time!

This locket is by far my favorite necklace ever! It was a gift from my boyfriend, Patrick, a couple years ago and I have worn it almost every day since. It has my initials on the front and he had “I love you” engraved on the inside. Seriously, how sweet is he?!  

Have a great week!

Casual yet Patriotic for the Fourth of July

Happy Wednesday! Anyone else as excited for the Fourth of July as I am?! First, I’m excited because I have Monday and Tuesday off work (YAY) and second, I’m going to Charleston to hang out at the beach and see Luke Combs in concert! The Fourth of July is always a fun time to just relax and have fun with family and friends. This outfit is super casual, yet festive at the same time. Definitely have to wear red, white or blue this weekend! I’m sure most of you can find something in your closets that you already have with one or more of these colors!

Here we go again with everything being from Old Navy! I’m telling ya, I can’t stop with that store! This OTS navy blue shirt is perfect and so on trend for the Fourth. I paired it with red shorts to make it more patriotic, but it would also work with white or denim shorts! Then I just threw on my white Converses, and of course a red lip and called it a day! I think that the red lip dresses it up a little and makes it more girly. This is actually my first time wearing red lipstick and I love it!  Makes you feel so fierce haha! The color is called Cherry Pie by LimeLight. It stays on all day and doesn't get crusty like a lot of others do! It actually moisturizes my lips pretty well. Click here if you want to check it out! 

Hope you all have a safe and fun weekend 🇺🇸 thanks for stopping by!

Two Ways to Style a Maxi Dress

Happy Thursday! We’ve almost made it to the weekend…woohoo! It’s been one of those rainy weeks where it puts you in a napping mood, so I’m hoping for some sun this weekend ☀️ It’s my sisters 31st birthday and we are celebrating by going to a MAGIC MIKE show….haha not sure what we’ve gotten ourselves into, but I’m super excited. I mean come on who doesn’t like seeing attractive guys take their shirts off…sorry Patrick LOL!
Anyways, on to this adorable flowy maxi dress that I found at Old Navy. If you read my blog often you have probably noticed that all of my outfits lately have been from Old Navy –  it seems like every time I go in there I end up buying way too much stuff! But you can’t beat their prices! And when I saw this maxi dress I had to have it! They are the perfect way to dress up, but be super comfortable at the same time. There are two ways to wear this maxi dress. You can either leave it long, or you can tie it up at the end like I did in some of the pictures. I think tying the bottom makes it a little more casual. This could be the perfect dress to wear to any fun summer outing! The sandals I'm wearing are also from there!
I have some exciting stuff coming up for Sweet & Savvy for that I am so ready to show you all! Everything from professional makeup to wedding inspiration, and of course more outfits!

Summer Jumpsuit & my go-to lip colors

How adorable is this jumpsuit you guys?! This is totally out the norm from what I would usually wear, but decided to try it on anyways and LOVE it. It comes in 3 different patterns – solid jean, black floral and this striped one. And the best part...its under $35! I think sometimes stepping out of the comfort zone of what you usually wear is so fun and something I plan to do a lot more! Also, here I am again wearing these Target sandals. I seriously wear them on repeat because they are so cute and go with everything! My white purse is sold out but I've linked similar ones below.

Now let's move on to the makeup! I know many of you have probably never heard of the makeup brand LimeLight, but you definitely need to check it out! I did a whole post about it that you can read here, but to make a long story short it is an all natural professional makeup and skincare line that was never available to the public until LimeLight started many years ago. I have been obsessing over the Enduring Lip colors. There are about 10 colors and they stay on allllll day and they DON'T dry out your lips. This is a must have for me when picking out lipsticks or glosses. The one I'm wearing with this outfit is called Wedding Cake. My other favorites in this line are Creme Brulee and Macaroon. See lip chart below for all the colors! If you interested in checking them out, click here! Promise, it will be the best $20 dollars you've every spent 💋

I know it’s been a few weeks since my last post but I’m finally back on my blogging schedule and have a lot of exciting content coming at ya! My goal is to get a post out to ya'll every Wednesday!

In other news, I'm headed home this weekend and I cannot wait to finally be back at the beach 🌴. The one thing I miss about being in Charlotte is being able to drive 10 minutes to the beach anytime. A pool just doesn't compare, but it will do with how hot it's been!

Hope you guys are having a great start to summer! Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
