Favorite Favorites, June 2016

Fav-fav-fav-favvvvooorites! And halfway through 2016? Saaaay whaaaaaaaaaat?

Was that enough extra a’s for you?

Today, I’m rounding up my June favorites, and ready to tell you ALL about them!

wicker clutch for summer style

Favorite Accessory: This wicker clutch that I scored for $10 on Poshmark! It’s the perfect summer accessory! It’s just the right size for going out for drinks (I took it to the Indy bloggers meet up and out for tapas with my girlfriends) or for grabbing when you are so hot and don’t want a crossbody weighing you down! I’ve rounded up some similar ones below…or you can search “wicker clutch” for yourself on Poshmark!

ps. My nail polish is my favorite shade (here) right now from Sally Hansen! Can’t stop…won’t stop!

Favorite Book: I apparently have been reading it forever, since I posted about it back in January (whoa) but I finally finished and loved Career of Evil, the third book in the Cormoran Strike series (here) by Robert Galbraith, aka the great J.K. Rowling. The first one in the series was still my favorite, but this one was also super good. If she could just come out with a new book every month that would be great.

Target mini wedge sandals | Style On Target

Favorite Shoes: Notice anything that you’ve seen before? Jokes. I’m pretty sure I wore one of these pairs of mini wedge sandals (get them here) on the blog at least every other day…if not every day…for the whole month!

A couple of you have asked about them, and they are fantastic (Target’s online reviews agree with me). They’re super comfy and easy to slip on and off. I walked 7 miles one day when we were in St. Louis wearing the orange pair, and I had no blisters and my feet weren’t sore at all! The only downer I can see with them…is they don’t come in more colors/patterns (how cute would a polka dot pair be?)!

Favorite “Splurge”: Fresh flowers….and I don’t care where they come from. The Husband bought me this gorgeous hydrangea for my birthday (see it here…it was literally the size of my head), and I also got to enjoy a mixed bouquet from Trader Joe’s and peonies earlier this month from Fresh Market. Just a bit of color and life to brighten up the day is so nice!

Covergirl Outlast Foundation review

Favorite Beauty Product: Covergirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous foundation. I used to be loyal to Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue foundation, but then one of my besties recommended giving this a try. I was looking for something that was just as light feeling, but provided more coverage, and this just seems to fit both of those qualifications. I do mix it with a little bit of my moisturizer (this bad boy here) when applying it, so that helps add some of the moisture that I was getting from the Bare Minerals. Definitely would recommend giving this a try…especially given it is a fourth of the price of the Bare Minerals!

Favorite App: If you guys take a lot of pictures with your phone and haven’t downloaded A Color Story yet…you MUST! It is a photo editing app for your phone, and it really transforms your pictures! I bought all the filters, but the free ones are really good as well. I love how bright the whites are and how bold the colors get with this app! Highly, highly recommend!

Skinny Pop Dusted Dark Chocolate

Favorite Treat: I am slowly realizing that I am a HUGE popcorn fan! And then I discovered Skinny Pop’s Dusted Dark Chocolate popcorn (here), and became an even bigger fan! It’s salty and decadent and just sweet enough to make me feel like I’m really getting a treat! Highly recommended if you are a popcorn and dark chocolate fan!

Favorite Cute: I haven’t even seen the movie yet (so no spoilers, please!), but isn’t baby Dory (from the new Pixar movie, Finding Dory) the CUTEST (see her here)?! I think I’m going to have to beg The Husband to take me to see it this weekend.

Chrissy Teigen Cravings cookbook

Favorite Cookbook: Look what my brother got me for my birthday! Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook (get it here)! I’ve only made on dish from it so far, but it was delicious, and I can’t wait to cook up the entire catalog later this year! I love cookbooks that have big photos of each dish…and Chrissy’s delivers on that, in case you’re like me and like to know exactly what you’re making (and how it is suppose to look)!

ps. I posted a similar photo on my Instagram (here), and Chrissy, herself, liked it. Yaaaaaassss!

Favorite OutfitI was so obsessed with this print mixing look that features one of my oldest Target items! I would wear this over and over and over again!

Be sure to leave your monthly favorite favorites in the comments! I’d love to hear about them!

ps. None of this is sponsored, and all of the favorite products reviewed were purchased by me (or me and The Husband when I slip them into the grocery cart)! ;)


  • Ooh, I’m going to have to bring that Skinny Pop into my office — the girls I work with are going to die! How do you edit the photos in this post? A Color Story? Goodness, the colors are always so perfect. I’m always really impressed with your photography!

    P.S. I totally have the same favorite outfit of yours from the last month. Still planning to copy that ASAP!

  • Apparently I say whaaaaaat like that a lot because my toddler now frequently does. It’s kind of funny/scary. My favorite shoes are currently my Soludos, but I’ve been loving your mini wedges in every outfit. Didn’t think I could justify another pair of shoes in my closet, but if you have them in three colors, then maybe I can get one?! :) And I loved that 3rd book in the Cormoran Strike series – definitely my favorite of the bunch that made me want a new one as soon as I finished it.

    I blame you for my identical collection of mini wedges! They really are so comfy and I really did NEED all 3 colors haha!
