Periods! Most of you reading this probably get them. So why is it that they are rarely ever talked about? Just like mental health, there's a whole stigma around periods and feminine hygiene, but we're here to break down those barriers! If we all were to open up about these topics a little more we could all help us navigate this life a little better. So I'm starting here on the blog and sharing a few tips for how I feel my absolute best during my worst week of the month. Don't worry though, we won't get too TMI here today, just a little bit of girl talk! 

Statement Earrings Under $50

by The Classic Brunette, 9:32:00 AM

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I have a busy few days ahead of me, but this weekend I'll be celebrating the wedding of a friend from college and am so excited to see her! With summer coming up I thought it would be the perfect time to share my favorite way of expressing myself: fun statement earrings! Summer to me means off the shoulder tops, bright colors, and a beautiful statement earring. I've rounded up all of my favorite statement pairs that are all under $50, although most of them are $25 and under! You know I'm all about staying in budget, so I tried to find pairs that wouldn't break the bank (meaning you can stock up on multiple pairs!!) Some of these I own myself, others are on my list to purchase, but all are obsess-worthy.

What are your favorite ways to make a fashion statement during the summer?

Why I Use Multiple Moisturizers

by The Classic Brunette, 9:55:00 AM

Last week on my Instagram stories I shared that I use four different moisturizers, and y'all went a little nuts over it! Haha. Many of you were confused, intrigued, and surprised, but most of you were curious as to WHY. Well, this post is all about that. Let's start this post off right though by clarifying that I am indeed not a skincare professional, and this is just my preference of how to treat my skin and what works for me! As I said, I switch off between four different moisturizers depending on how my skin is feeling and other factors like the time of day and weather. I'll be doing a more in depth review on each moisturizer and what I use it for below!

Girly Dallas Living Room

by The Classic Brunette, 11:24:00 AM

I'm so excited to finally share with you all part of my new place in Dallas! If you've ever moved somewhere, I'm sure you know the struggle that is getting a room together. Almost three months have gone by and I'm only just getting things finished off and finalizing new decor. My best friend and I split most of our furniture and decor evenly, so I had to fill in those empty spots in the new place, but I was mostly set. Luckily I didn't have too difficult of a time finding the items I wanted (and almost all at great prices!) but I did need a little help putting things together and styling it in the most flattering way. So I do want to give a shout out to my closest friend out here in Dallas, Brooke, for using her interior design and decorating skills to help make my place completely come together! And also for hanging things because I'm probably the least handy person you will ever meet, haha. So without further adieu, here's a look at my new living room space and some thoughts on why I went with this decor!

Recent Purchases + Why You Should Purchase In Multiples

Howdy friends! (That's right, I'm in Texas now, so I get to use cowboy talk 😉) I haven't done any fashion inspired posts in a bit, and I figured I would show y'all a little bit of what I've been purchasing lately. I've somehow found myself headed to Nordstrom Rack a lot recently since there's one close to my new apartment, and I kept running into the same few pieces that I loved. So, you know what the say, if you like it...buy it in multiples! This was something my dad said to me so many times growing up, and it got ingrained into my mind that it's the smart thing to do when you really like something. I agree, BUT, I typically only do this with more classic pieces unless the trendier ones are very reasonably priced. And luckily for you all, I've found some items that I'm obsessed with and have bought multiples of...that you can find all in one place. I've had luck finding some of these pieces in store, but most are easier to find online if you don't want to go on a fruitless search in store. Here are the things I've picked up recently!

Scalloped Cami 

I'm honestly surprised that these camis are still in stock! I've had my black and white ones since around December! They've only added to the colors/patterns they come in, which is a bonus for me! I just bought the leopard one last week at my local store. Although it says sold out in a few colors/sizes online, I saw multiple off those on the racks. So be sure to check in store for those as well! Also, if you're a bit busty, you might want to go up a size! 

The second I saw these sandals I knew I was going to fall in love with them. They weren't too tall, they had a platform which would make them comfortable, and they came in five colors! I found the snakeskin ones in store, tried them on and it was probably one of the quickest "I have to buy these" moments I've had in quite a while. So then I went on a search to find the black pair at another store. I would have purchased them in the tan too, but my best friend are the same size and she bought them in that color! So I'll just be borrowing hers, haha. 

I do want to stress though that these sandals are so so comfortable. I personally didn't even have to break them in before wearing them out. The platform makes it feel like there's barely a heel, but it isn't too high where you feel wobbly on your feet! Although these are more on the expensive side ($80), I believe the shoe style is classic and worth the investment. Although if you're only looking to get one color, I would say you can't go wrong with the black or tan, they go with anything! 

GUYS. I FINALLY BOUGHT A BODYSUIT! For a while I was sure that all bodysuits were just going to make me look like a toddler in a gymnastics class, but I finally found one that looks good! So what do I do? Of course I buy it in every color/pattern. The best part is I don't feel bad about doing it because they're only $23 each. Such a deal for something I've basically been living in this past week (I think I wore it 4/7 days this week...) It's comfortable, stretchy enough that my booty/hips fit without making me feel squished. I sized up because I wanted a bit of a looser fit, however your traditional size will fit great as well! The bodysuit comes in black and leopard too (they're in the mail, but I'll show them on stories once they get here!) If I had to tell you to absolutely get one of these items, it would be this one! Plus it's pretty dang budget friendly! My best friend also bought two of the three colors as well, I swear it's currently my favorite thing in my closet. 

P.S. I know I found all of these items at Nordstrom Rack, but this post isn't sponsored by them! (Although....hit me up Nordstrom Rack I love you!) I just happened to get so many deals here recently that I had to share! Which item is your favorite?
