Self Tanning Oil ~ Tan Extender

Attention ladies!! I have a new favorite self tanner that I will be using all year round. Now that it is getting closer to Spring time, I have decided that I am over looking pale as snow and need some bronze skin in my life! haha! In the past, I have used different self tanners but never loved the color they developed or the actual product itself. Most of the ones I have tried are a cream or moose but one that I never thought to try was an oil! Goldenstar Beauty self tanner is an oil that sprays SO evenly and it SO easy to blend. When applying this oil, I was very impressed with how easy it was to blend, how amazing it smelled (unlike most tanners) and how well the color developed in just a few hours, with a bronzy shade instead of an unnatural brown or orange look. This tanner is meant to last for about a week and then begins to fade until reapplied. Because of this, Goldenstar Beauty decided to come out with a tan extender. This extender is like a lotion that you apply to your tan a day or two after applying. This lotion will stop the tan from fading as fast, so you don’t have to reapply as frequently…Totally worth it! Another aspect of the self tanning oil and the tan extender that I love, is the ingredients. All natural ingredients like jojoba oil, avocado oil, macadamia oil, olive oil, primrose oil and even hyaluronic acid is mixed in these tanners to give you an overall healthy tan without irritating your skin! From all of the tanners I have tried, I can honestly say that this one is the healthiest and most natural that I have come across. No more pale skin for me!

If you would like to give these tanners a try, you can use my coupon code “KAITLY10” for 10% off your purchase!

Today is a VERY special day…Simply Stylish Blog is 1!! It is crazy to think it has already been a year since I started Simply Stylish. I have learned soo much in this past year about the blogging world and I am loving every moment of it. from photoshoots to creating content to post, I truly understand the hard work that goes into it and how rewarding it can be! A year ago, starting a blog was something that I wanted to do for fun, but never imagined how far it would take me. In this past year, I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with over 10 companies and grow relationships with other bloggers. Continuing on, I am excited to see what this next year brings Simply Stylish and want to thank each and every one of you for following and supporting me. Without you, I would have never been able to grow as much as I already have in only one year!

 

Ok! Valentines Day is a few weeks away and I have the perfect outfit for y’all! This semi-dressy look is for you girls who don’t want to wear something formal on Valentines Day. I love the feminine vibe that this top gives off, and am obsessed with the color! I have been drawn to pastel pinks and lavender a lot lately, so I knew it was mine the minute I saw the color! I linked a similar top above (the one im wearing is from Dillards) and think that it would also make for a perfect Valentines Day outfit.

What are your plans for Valentines Day? Anything special!?

Top: brand is Antonio Melani Similar style here on sale! $35 and here on sale! $30 ~  Jeans ~ Booties: very similar here ~ Bag: similar style here ~ Sunglasses ~ Necklace: very similar herehere and here ~ Bracelet: identical here on sale $18

Spring is right around the corner and I am so ready! When it comes to Spring fashion, soft neutrals with a pop of color is my go to. For this look, I wanted to include a darker denim and some booties for a more transitional look that you can wear now into Spring! Once Spring hits, I will be wearing this top with some bright colored high wasted shorts (Im thinking pastel pink!). I LOVE LOVE how oversized this top is, making it easy to tuck into any kind of pant. Sadly, I CANNOT find this top online (grrr) but I listed the exact brand and some similar tops (on sale) that would look just as cute! I purchased this top as Dillards, so if you have a Dillards near you, I would check there. What is your Spring fashion go-to!? Leave me a comment!

A Flowy Maroon Top With A Touch Of Flare

Top: very similar and on sale! $30! and almost identical style here + on sale for $45! ~ Denim ~ Booties ~ Bag ~ Bracelet: very similar here only $20! ~ Earrings on sale! $12

Ok, starting off, I want to talk about the amazing SNOW day we had! Living in Texas, we only see snow maybe once or twice in a two year gap, so seeing 2-3 inches today was so neat! Konnor got to stay home from college due to icy roads, so it was nice for us to get to enjoy the snow day together! We even made snow ice cream…SUPER easy and very yummy!

 

On to this look! I am a sucker for flowy tops like these and think they are flattering on everyone! No matter your curves or straight figure, flowy tops never cling to your body which is a look I tend to gravitate towards. I paired this top with my trusted flares jeans and the cutest mule booties. I was not able to find this exact top, but I made sure to link two VERY similar ones that come in different colors! Also, Most of today’s look is on sale, so shop those deals while you can!

Design Your Plum Paper Planner Here!

Now that it is the new year, a new planner is a must have for me! I love being organized and having a planner makes planning fun and easy. As I was looking for a new planner for 2018, I was extra picky with what I wanted. A normal planner with tiny squares and a few pages of lines to jot down extra info, was not what I was interested in. I was in the market for something more detailed, like a book. I did not just want to write down my plans and appointments, but also plan my blogging schedule and have a spot to brainstorm. I found Plum Paper on Instagram and immediately loved the planners that they featured on their page. I decided to check out their website to see what planners they had to choose from and was super impressed with what all they offer! I got to customize my entire planner, including the design on the outside of the planner, the size of the planner, what I wanted in the planner AND so many extra add on’s that I wanted to include. Plum Paper is also fairly priced which is a miracle when compared to many other planners out there. For around $50 I chose the “Large Me” 12 month planner with two addition add on’s (blog planning add on) and (brainstorming add on). What I love so much about Plum Paper is the freedom you have when choosing the planner that is right for you and the amazing quality that you receive for such a great price! I 100% recommend Plum Paper if you are looking for a customize-able, stylish planner. It’s time to start planning in style!

Sweater: similar here and here ~ Belt: similar ~ Leggings: very similar here ~ Beanie: identical one here ~ Boots $35! ~ Necklace: very similar herehere and here

If you do not recognize this sweater, I also wore it in this post! In that post, I paired this orange and black sweater with the cutest cheetah mules for a casual day look. In this look today, I totally transformed this sweater into a “night out” outfit! With long sweaters, adding a waist belt flatters your figure and simply turns your oversized sweater into a semi-dressy sweater dress! Linked above are 3 similar sweaters that will achieve the same look and are available in lots of colors. Adding a knit beanie or a floppy hat like this one, really enhances the wintery vibe and makes the look complete! As you have seen in a few of my recent posts, I cannot get away from these otk boots. I am taking advantage of the cold weather that we have left, so I can style them as much as I can before Spring! Honestly my fave boots this winter!

Have a great week!

Sweater: similar here and here ~ Denim: very similar here ~ Boots only $35!! ~ Bag

This over-sized cowlneck sweater and white denim outfit is one of my favorite combos this winter. I find that pairing any sweater or top with white denim, makes for a more girly look that I am all about! This cozy look is super simple and is very easy to recreate. Listed above are a couple of similar sweaters that look almost identical to the one I am wearing! Also, these over the knee boots (that I seriously cannot stop wearing) are only $35!! Such a steal! Long over-sized sweater’s like these are so versatile and can be paired in so many ways. For a more dressy outfit, replace the denim for leggings and through some black wedges on! On the other hand, regular denim and a pair of riding boots would make for a very casual, stylish look! How do y’all prefer to style over-sized sweater’s!? Leave a comment below!
