Shop the Look: Button-Up How to Style

I’ve been getting questions about where to find pieces in my How To Style: Button-Up Shirt post. A lot of the things I paired it with have been in my closet for a while, so I’ve linked a similar piece where I was unable to find the exact item.

Top: The chambray button-up is a soft wash top from the Banana Republic Factory store.

How To Style: Button-Up Shirt

howtostyle1

Hello, loves!  Have that button-up shirt in your closet that you adore, but have been looking for new ways to style?

This denim button-up is from Banana Republic, I love it and wear it allll the time, it is really versatile and super comfy.   You can wear it with jeans and sneakers, under a sweater, with a short skirt and tights, or leggings and a scarf.  You could also pair it with a pencil skirt and heels, tie it shorter in front with high waisted jeans and a jacket, or wear it with jeans and a t-shirt.   So many options!  I especially love this style of shirt because you can dress it up or down so easily. Accessorize, and have fun!

Please let me know if you have questions about anything I’m wearing. Thank you so much for reading ❤  Be sure to follow me or subscribe via email for upcoming How To Style posts!

xoxo, Katie

Best Beauty Products Under $5

I love a good bargain, but I have discovered that you often get what you pay for when it comes to cosmetics.  There are, however, exceptions to this rule!  Here are 10 bargain products I have purchased, and love just as much (or more!) as high-end products.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Illuminating Palette in Catwalk Pink ($4.99)

This illuminating palette is SO GORGEOUS!  I was really upset because I thought it had been discontinued.  When I wrote this post, it was the first product I thought of so I was on a mission to find it.  As you can see, it still exists but the packaging changed.  *whew*.  I will use a fluffy powder brush and swipe it across the palette to pick up a bit of each shade, then I brush it over my cheekbones and at my temples for some highlight/blush action.  It is so beautiful on, and it warms my face up after applying foundation.   I will also use these shades individually as eyeshadow, so this is a multi-use product!

Wet n Wild Foundation Brush ($2.99)

Keeping it in the Wet n Wild family for now, I recently picked this brush up from Meijer and I really like it!  This brush has synthetic polymax fibers that are perfect for cream or liquid foundation.  The first time I used it (with True Match liquid foundation), I expected to go over the foundation with a damp beauty blender after applying it with the brush.  I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find I didn’t need that extra step at all!

NYC New York Color Browser Brush-On Brow Kit, Brush-On Brunette ($3.79)

This brow kit is THE original brow product for me.  I used this years ago when I was first starting to play around with makeup, and I still reaaaaally like it.  I would not recommend the tweezers or brush it comes with (both are bad news bears), but the powder and wax itself both work really well. I would recommend using it with a smaller angled brush, this $3 e.l.f. brush is actually the one I use.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss ($4.99)

Love this gloss!  I like the texture of it; it is moisturizing and not terribly sticky.  It is pretty long-lasting, and it comes in many beautiful shades.  This is the shade Nude Pink, which for me is the perfect “my lips but better” shade.
