#TGIF. For real. I'm excited that it's Friday for two reasons. It's been a long week, and I'm looking forward to a fun Friday night! I also started trying to eat better this week and today is CHEAT DAY. Those words are music to my ears. Anyone else with me? When you work hard all week, you deserve a night to let go and have fun! Tonight I'm going out in Denver for some much needed time with friends and to step away from my laptop and desk.
There are two essentials when it comes to going out in my book. There has to be good music and a cute outfit. This Friday Favorites I'm going to be talking about some pieces I'm wearing tonight, and why these items are some of my favorite things right now. I also included a fun Friday Night Playlist below! So let's get to it!
Friday Night Playlist:
1. Double Buckle Belts
I ordered this belt from ASOS (First ASOS purchase ever...HEYO!) and I love it! I was a little too excited when this package arrived in the mail last week, because I've been eyeing this belt for awhile.
Double buckle belts are the perfect staple for dressing up a cute pair of jeans or shorts and pairing them with a cute top! I like how it has a little western flair but is a pretty neutral piece, so it matches everything. Perfect for the times you want to ditch the glam and go for a more cute and casual look, and also bust out those dance moves! 💃🏻
2. Kylie Lip Kit
All aboard the Kylie Lip Kit Train. But seriously. Yes, I'm shamelessly now an owner of a Kylie Lip Kit. Like I'm sure some of you are, I was a little skeptical of this brand at first because I assumed most people were only buying it because it's another product stamped by the Kardashian Empire. At first I let other people be the guinea pigs, and then eventually caved and wanted to try it for myself. Aside from the fact that Kylie's made a franchise off of her fake plumped lips (whatever floats your boat girl!), the Kylie Lip Kit is actually SUCH a great product!
No I didn't go to extreme measures to get this because I'm not willing to set my alarm to try and snag one before they sell out in minutes. I managed to get one when Kylie announced over the fourth of July weekend on snapchat (stop, I know you secretly follow her too) that Kylie Cosmetics was stocked up with lots of products and no one would have to virtually fight and give over their soul in order to get their hands on a product.
Incase you don't know, each Lip Kit comes with a gloss and a lip liner, and there are matte, regular and metallic glosses. I purchased the Candy K matte gloss. I think it's the perfect shade for not only a night out, but also a cute day look if you're wanting to spice things up a little. This is the first lip gloss I've tried that literally stays on my lips all night. I even have a hard time rubbing it off. Needless to say, it's long-lasting. My lips are still au naturale, I don't own a grill and I don't have paint dripping from my lips but I gotta say, I always feel a little more glam with this finishing touch.
I'm currently obsessed with booties for lots of reasons. 1. They're so perfect for fall, and like I said last week, I'm obsessed with fall. 2. They're really comfortable. 3. They can be dressed up or worn on a day to day basis.
I picked up these beauties from Nordstrom Rack this week and I'm really digging this particular pair because I'm loving the dark yellow-y brown color right now. In my opinion booties make anyone look pulled a little more pulled together, no matter what you pair them with, and they don't require a lot of work. I love that you can wear them with anything whether it be a dress, shorts or jeans. Tonight I'm giving the heels a rest and will be under 6 feet for once...if I'm lucky!
That's it for today's Friday Favorites! Anyone else have any fun Friday night plans? Would love to hear! If you're staying in, I would recommend pulling out a game of Cards Against Humanity or binge watch "Love at First Kiss" (you won't regret it, and it will make your love life feel a lot less awkward, even if you don't have one).
Whether you're going out or staying in, I hope everyone has a great Friday night!
