I am so excited about my new casual Friday series. Melissa Creates has always been about entertaining stylishly and living simply and I will always remain true to this but from time to time I’d like to share a view from behind the scenes, my current favorites and my cherished outfits. Last year I had a handful of coffee chats where I shared blog tips and working from home life advice and this year I’m going to mix things up and take the fun level up a notch! I’m kicking off the series today and hope you love casual Friday chit chat as much as I will. Today we’re chatting my new found love for stripes, floral Mickey ears and the best lipstick ever.
Stripes I’ve always been a fan of when it comes to table displays as you can see here and here. Recently I’ve gotten a bit bolder with my outfits and personal style and I predict stripes will be taking over my closet. You can see more of my stripe love here. While I’m not new at taking photos of myself I’m new at taking style photos of myself and I LOVE it. Talk about a confidence booster! My style is continuing to evolve and I’m having a blast with it. This mama of 2 is seeing more of herself shine through.
Outfit Details: Lularoe Classic T and Lularoe Lola Lace Skirt (my current go to outfit for every occasion)
Aside from a new healthy obsession with stripe attire I’m smitten by floral Mickey ears. My talented friends Glittering Dixie created these custom ears for me and they are perfection!! You can see me sporting them at my recent Animal Kingdom visit here. We’ve been annual pass holder for about 1.5 years and just recently I dove into the Disney life hard core. From the Purple Wall to creative photo taking in the park, I’m all in! My toddler loves the park and if we don’t visit often he asks to see Disney which makes my heart melt. We were Harry Potter World pass holders pre baby and now we are all about that Disney.
How much do ya’ll love these ears!?!? When they arrived in a super cute box a letter also attached explaining the tiny bee on the back of my ears… they were family member buttons that the ladies were passing on to others. Um, how thoughtful is that? Grab you a pair of ears or contact the ladies for a custom order, they’re sweet and professional.
My next plans with these beautiful ears is to head to the Flower and Garden festival. I’ll totally fit right in.
Quickly I have to mention the best lipstick everrrrr. I stumbled across Genevieve on Instagram one day and thought she was adorable! She’s a mama and girl boss working her biz which I totally relate to and respect. Our IG friendship began and now I have just a few Lipsense and Shadowsense products… just a few, ha! If you’re looking for lipstick that doesn’t move and eyeshadow that covers up the mombie eyes, she’s your gal. I wore some lipstick to a wedding and it didn’t move for 6 hours, that’s when I was officially hooked! It’s amazing how lipstick can make your entire day better. Put on the lipstick and tackle the day, girl bosses!
And that’s a wrap on this weeks casual Friday favorite things! xo
