Giorgio Armani Silk Luminous Foundation - my absolute favorite liquid foundation - natural, silky, flawless finish, medium coverage

Tarte 12hr Amazonian Clay Blush in Risque - my go-to blush, pretty peachy nude, use it pretty much every time i put on makeup, such a pretty natural color, lots of other shades to choose from

Hourglass Ambient Light Bronzer in Radiant - the perfect bronzer, not shimmery, very natural

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer - my favorite, splurge worthy primer, leaves your skin smooth and flawless, perfect for under makeup

BareMinerals bare pro powder - the perfect everyday powder, medium coverage, looks so good and natural, not cakey

BareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick in Honeybun - pretty natural lipstick, not drying

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer - the BEST! blends so nicely and really brightens under the eyes and covers any blemishes

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation with SPF 15 - this one is also a good foundation with a natural finish, medium coverage and i love that it has SPF, perfect for summer

Hello FAB Coconut Primer Moisturizer - this stuff smells amazing, hides pores and kinda has a little glow, so perfect if you want a dewy finish under makeup 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush in Mood Exposure - not shimmery, really pretty and natural, my second go-to blush



Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Brigthen & Firm Vitamin C Serum - i added this to my skincare a few months ago and i love it! i definitely noticed a difference in skin - brighter and smoother, definitely a must-have is some kind of Vitamin C in your skincare routine!

Herbivore Blue Tansy mask - this mask is great if you are prone to blemishes and acne. i use it all the time when my skin is breaking out or has some irritation and it works so well, its also clean so works well for sensitive skin

Farmacy Honeymoon Glow - this overnight serum is perfect if you have uneven skin or texture, you will wake up with brighter and smoother skin, does make your skin feel tingly at first so start off slow when you use

Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask - i have been using this mask since right around the time it launched. i love it, it is super hydrating so i leave it on all night long, especially under my eyes, so i wake up refreshed and hydrated

Summer Fridays Overtime mask - this mask smells so good and it a great exfoliating mask! once you wash it off, our skin feels so clean and smooth ( are you noticing a theme with my skincare faves??)

Drunk Elephant BabyFacial - this stuff is worthe the splurge! it is amazing for your skin, at-home facial, really leaves your skin soft and smooth

Farmacy Green Clean - the best cleansing balm! it smells so good, washes away all my makeup and my skin is super soft after

Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Deep Cream - super hydrating cream that absorbs quickly, leaving my skin soft and brighter after every use, also helps with fine lines

First Aid Beauty Radiance pads - i like to use these as toning pads to brighten, exfoliate & tone my skin after cleansing and before putting other products on my skin. works well woth sensitive skin too

Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask - i love this mask, feels so good on, kinda wakes you up and brightens the skin



Drybar Triple Sec - 3-in-1 dry spray that gives instant texture, volume and body, i love using this iver dry shampoo most days, totally gives my hair life!

T3 Micro Twirl Trio Interchangeable Curling Iron - i have been using this curling iron every time i do my hair for the past few months! i also love their wand! but just been using the clamp iron lately. their hair tools are worht every penny IMO. they work really well, have multiple settings, easy to use and leave my hair looking silky and smooth!

Drybar Money Maker hairspray - my favorite hairspray, the only one i will use! i used to hate hairspray and i would never use any, until i found this one. i fortunately don't need a ton of hair spray to keep most of my curls or waves to last, so this is perfect. its super lightweight and flexible. i don't know about you but i am not a fan of crunchy hair haha

styling session - denim skirt

happy thursday friends!!! 

this week has felt soooo long and it’s been so exhausting! The babies are both going through a kinda challenging phase - - definitely testing my patience so most days i have so little energy to get anything done but I’m trying to stay on track and I think finally getting a new styling session helps!

So here it is - DENIM SKIRT

I love denim skirts... I think they weren’t so popular a few years ago but they definitely made a comeback in the last couple years and I am glad they did! I am definitely not a fan of the really tight, low-rise short denim skirts from back in the day, but this one I am styling is perfect! it doesn’t have a tight fit, they are high rise and the length is perfect! i love the raw hem plus it’s super affordable and great quality! I am wearing a size 0 for reference, so I would recommend sizing down and I am also wearing the light wash but I will also link the darker wash! 

{ outfit 1 }

wearing a small in the top & my usual size 8 in the leopard slides - both run true to size, my top is on sale for under $30 and comes in five colors! this bag has been my go-to since i got it when i am not using my diaper bag, crossbody strap so easy to use and its the perfect size, under $70 and comes in two other colors - this one is labeled as light grey but it looks more like tan/taupe color, very pretty for spring


{ outfit 2 }

wearing a small in the top and sized up 1/2 size in the sandals


{ outfit 3 }

wearing a small in the tee & i always size up 1/2 a size in vans


{ outfit 4 }

wearing a small in the sweater blazer, comes in 8 colors & i sized up 1/2 a size in these mules, also come in black and white - they go with everything and the heel height is perfect!


check out my instatories to see these outfits in action and for more detail 

have a beautiful day!

yay! its friday..hello weekend! it will be one of my last free weekends because i will be back to work next week and will be working most saturdays since it works best with our schedules.. oh how different our lives will be when i am back at work.. luckily i only work twice a week. we will survive haha!

anyway, onto more exciting things! i have been going to madewell a lot lately because i am in love with their spring arrivals! like seriously SO SO CUTE! i have always loved madewell but for some reason i don't tend to shop there during the fall/winter as much because i just feel like i won't wear those items as much living in san diego. but their spring and summer pieces are my faaaave!! mostly because i can wear a lot of it pretty much year round here and they are just so cute, casual and effortless. i am obsessed. so i tried on some things when i was there last a few days ago and i wish i had tried on way more but as always i took forever trying on the things i did try on so i had little time to get more pieces to try! i know, i need to work on talking less and moving quicker haha! anyways, tell me your faves in the comments! the videos with sizing info are in my instastories, so click HERE to get to my insta!




















thank you so much for stopping by! and if you haven't done so already don't forget to follow me on INSTAGRAM and LIKETOKNOW.IT so you don't miss a post! also feel free to DM me or leave a comment if you have any questions on anything!

styling session - black striped blouse

happy tuesday friends!

i have something fun planned! i have my second styling session happening today over on my instatories at 10am PST! i didn't get to put up my first one in a blog post because i never had time but i made sure to make time to get it all in one place for you! today, another blogger friend and i styled the same exact top from target! super cute, versatile and affordable! 

so lets go ahead and just get into the looks! i created 10 looks, a few of them have the same base look, with an added jacket or change of shoes. 

i will have all the items or similar ones linked after each look! 

enjoy !! 



same base as look one, but added the white blazer for a more dressy, chic look. would also be great with a black blazer






same as a above, but added on a leather jacket!














hope you guys enjoyed this styling session! this top will definitely be getting a lot of use this spring! 

have a beautiful day!

old navy try-on

ITS F R I Y A Y !!!

happy happy friday friends!! woohoo we made it through another week -- but to be honest it is no different for me.. i'm still on maternity leave and just staying at home with my babies and trying to do some blog stuff on the side but its been really difficult... hence why this is my first post in months! 

anywho.. i am so excited to share this OLD NAVY try on with you all! i never really used to shop at old navy and then started getting some baby stuff from here because its affordable, pretty good quality and super cute.. then i started noticing their clothes for women. i don't love everything but they have some great pieces and love when they have a good sale! some of my faves to shop for at Old Navy are jeans (shocking, because i used to be a designer jean snob), basic tees, sweaters and leggings/joggers. i thought it would be fun to do a little try-on session of some of my favorite things right now.. and you'll soon see i'm still very much of a neutrals, casual, comfy style gal. and i am really loving old navy jeans right now! they are definitely some of my favorites! so i shared my try-on over on my instatories, where i go into more detail about sizing and what not, so head over to my instgram HERE! also, i partnered up with my babe, Gretchen from Living Life Pretty - - she also did a try-on at Old Navy so make sure to check out her instatories HERE too! 

all items will be linked after each outfit!



















thank you so much for reading! hope you enjoyed this try-on session! if there is a specific retailer you would like me to do a try-on session at, please comment below or DM me on instagram! 

have a beautiful friday!

BEST dress EVER !!


we made it through another week.. and OMG it felt like such a blur and i have no idea why. i just kept feeling like it was monday over and over it defintiely felt like a long week. not even sure exactly what i did.. the days just mush together.. don't know whether its because i have pregnancy brain or what. its crazy. i feel like there was so much going on this week but at the same time i'm thinking to myself, sheesh did i even completely get anything done on my to do list this week?! definitely didn't get as many blog posts up for you guys like i had planned (oops) and this one is kinda late but ya know, do what you can right? i've been wanting to share these looks with you because i am seriosuly obsessed with this dress.. so lets stop the nonsense rambling and get to it! ha! 

ok so this is seriously the BEST DRESS EVERRRRRRR! and if you don't like this dress, i really need to know why because it is literally the most universally flattering dress ever. looks amazing on all body types, its obviously non-maternity but it looks so cute on us preggers, i cannot get enough. i feel like i need all of the colors! its perfect to dress down but totally works dressed up too and it is great transitional piece for fall, so i thought it would be fun to style the dress three ways for fall! get excited!! 

|| LOOK ONE ||

this look is perfect for the beginning of fall, especailly where i live and it takes a looooong time for temps to actually drop and feel like fall. like always i kept the look pretty simple, but added this lightweight leopard scarf - i don't know about you but i CANNOT get enough of leopard print for fall, i have always loved leopard print so i am so happy its hottttt right now for fall! anywho added the scarf and threw on some classic brown booties to complete this look. this outfit is perfect for a semi-warm fall day, no exactly cool enough for a jacket or sweater. when it does get cooler, just thrown on a chunky cardi or a classic moto style leather jacket and you're good to go! 

|| outfit details ||

dress || scarf, another option here || booties (last year), other great pairs here, here and here

|| SHOP look ONE ||


|| LOOK TWO ||

you know i had to have an outfit that's super casual and perfect for every day and this is it! super comfortable and easy for running errands and going about your normal day. denim jackets are so easy to throw on duing the day when its cooler, add a cool baseball cap, especially on those days we may have waited too long to wash our hair (HEHE) and my favorite sneakers -- comfortable yet stylish. you can also add a chunky scarf for when its much cooler and bam, done! easy peasy! 

|| outfit details || 

dress || denim jacket, other options here and here || hat, also here || sneakers, also love these and these

|| SHOP look TWO ||



the ultimate fall look! i mean nothing to me screams fall than a long cardi, OTK boots and a wool fedora hat, i mean right?!? just like the other outfits throw on a blanket scarf or cute infitiny scarf and you'd be set for those chilly crisp fall days! i love this outfit because i feel like its appropriate to wear during the day -- lunch or brunch with the girlfriends, weekend day visit to a winery -- but also works great for night -- date night with your special someone or drinks with the ladies -- such a versatile outfit, versatile dress! i'm all about the versatility.. and did i mention its also super comfortable and flattering!! hahaha 

|| outfit details ||

dress || cardigan, also love this and this || OTK boots (last year), similar herehere and here || hat, similar here, here and here 

|| SHOP look THREE ||


so which outfit was your favorite?

also if you ever recreate any of my looks please, please DM me a pic on instagram - @SASSANDSUN !! i would love to see and share! 

have an amazing friday and CHEERS to the WEEKEND!!

all in the {delicate} details

happy tuesday babes!!

i hope everyone is having an awesome week so far! i feel like all the days are meshing together for me the further along i get in my pregnancy. i literally feel like i forget everything and am super exhausted! its crazy how pregnancy affects our minds and bodies -- although i do really enjoy being pregnant! 

anywho, i want to share a quick little blog post with some of my new dainty rose gold pieces from swarovski i recently received from Reeds Jewelers. i don't know about you, but when i hear of a jeweler, i automatically think fine jewelery only -- engagement rings, wedding bands, high end watches, diamond earrings -- you get what i'm saying. and while Reeds Jewelers has all of these amazing options -- seriously, they have really beautiful pieces -- they also carry a wide range of fashion jewelry. if you're looking for somthing to wear to a special event, party or want something nice for yourself you can wear everyday but no exactly a diamond tennis bracelet, Reeds Jewelers has lots to choose from! they also carry amazing brands like swarovski, pandora, alex and ani, loren hope, roberto coin and more! 

these three pieces i chose are absolutely beautiful. i am huge fan of dainty, delicate pieces that can be layered or worn alone, for everyday when you want a little sparkle but also elegant for a date night or event. these pieces give me exactly that. i love that i can totally wear them alone or all together. Reeds Jewelers also carries statement jewelery if that's more your jam! defintiely check out to see more! 

what are your favorite types of jewelry to wear?

have a fabulous rest of the week!
