Saturdays are for..

Saturday

April and May are busy times 1000 in all aspects of life. An empty Saturday is hard to come by these days. Kids are finishing up school and getting ready to start Summer. Teens are having prom and finals. Parents are trying to get a schedule in place for summer all while chasing their kids to every practice, ball game, banquet, and awards day the school offers. Kudos, mommas.

Even, around the cosmetology world. It’s busy! Every Saturday since the first weekend in April I have had busy Saturdays at work. I’m talking all day long. I’m not complaining. I love doing updos for such important days. Through April it’s Prom season, banquets, and benefits. Not to mention wedding season is in full swing as well. I have not stopped on Saturdays for over a month. For the last 6 weeks, I have worked and worked and worked. Okay, thats a little dramatic but I mean..

Saturday

Do you have a job you love but still need an occasional break from? Lynlee does! I knew going into beauty school that Saturdays would be for working. But, working on a Saturday come in waves for me. I work several Saturdays in a row and then, my client don’t even request an appointment on Saturdays for weeks. Spring is one of the waves of working Saturdays. Summer is a big wave of not working Saturdays because people love to spend time with their families, friends, and enjoying the weather. I’m embracing the off duty Saturday.

Hairstylist Hours of Operation

I laughed as I strolled Old Navy a couple weeks ago and stumbled upon this shirt. “Off Duty” it read. I’m certain it has some other meaning but to me, it was a funny play on words for my chosen profession. As a hairstylist you’re never off duty. I know there are lots of professions that have the same hours as me, all hours. There are no hours of operation. I am in the service industry. My schedule is flexible so that it fits YOUR schedule. That’s 1/2 the reason I love the job so much. My schedule is made by me.

Over the last weekend, Nate asked me to trim his neck at about 9:00 Sunday Night. If I’m getting ready with my mom, I want to help. If I’m doing my makeup with my friends I get asked to help or tips and tricks. As a hairstylist you’re never off work. So, obviously I had to snag this tank!

Being a hairstylist is the career of my dreams. I never feel like I work. For me, it’s never a job. With everything come the need to get away, get refreshed, and start again. I love helping my mom fix her hair. It brings me joy when my friends ask me tricks about doing their hair and makeup. To be asked to trim someones hair in my “of duty” time is one of those things that makes you feel like you’re doing the job of your calling. To me, it’s never work. I’m embracing the day of being “Off Duty” tomorrow.

Off Duty Saturday

I’ll be the girl wearing no makeup with unfixed hair. Nate and I love our Saturdays together. We love to do everything and nothing. Once, Nate said, “I think you have lost weight.” I said, “YEAH! because we never set still on the weekends.” But, I don’t mind it. Call me crazy but I love, love, love my job but I need a day to do absolutely nothing. I want to play around with no schedule no list of dos or time frames to meet. And, I want to spend the whole day with my dog and Nate. Every now and then you earn a day like that, ya know?

I look forward to getting up too early so Nate can have Eggs Benedict at Fat City. Come home to immediately start working on things. We are both most relaxed when we’re working on a project. Thats where we’ll be. You can find us projecting for our mom’s Mother’s DayGifts.  ( Fun Fact: Both our moms are named Donna. )

My Donna asked for a bed swing to go in her outdoor kitchen. She loves to swing and has ALWAYS had a swing in the back yard. My mom has been drooling over bed swings for years. We saw one on one of our annual beach trips to Seaside and has wanted one ever since. His Donna is getting a huge planter because she LOVES flowers. Both our moms love their outdoor spaces. His mom has a beautiful pavilion in her back yard surrounded by flowers and bird feeders. They already know what they’re getting so this isn’t blowing any surprises. I can’t wait to celebrate these moms.

Saturdays are for Relaxing

 Today, when I put away my products after my last client and turn off my blowdryer, I’ll be off duty. As much as I love my job, I am looking forward to it! How do you relax on your Off Duty Days? What’s on your mother’s day gift list? Let me know below! oh, and P.S. Old Navy is having 30% off until Sunday! ( your welcome )

Red, White and Dog

Red, White, and Dock
Red, White, & Blue

So, you may have seen this outfit in this post. But, I didn’t go into too much detail of the outfit because I wanted to tell you about it here! Denim and denim or denim and white is one of my favorite outfit pairings. Throw is a little red and I’m all about that outfit choice. It screams spring and summer to me.

First, let’s just talk about the elephant in this post. How cute does Dock look in these pictures? He was totally posing for us in between running off to go sniff out the birds that were trying to take part in this shoot. You know I love any excuse to share photos of Dock. He matched me. Nate even said, “Dock, you have to stay here,” as we were walking out the door. I slowly turned around  to say, “wait. he can go! We match!” So, in that moment I hired a second model to be featured on the blog! 😉

Memorial Day Festivities

I don’t know about you but I cannot wait until memorial day weekend. You get an extra day added to your weekend which means a shorter work week. Everyone packs in festivities of all sorts and you get to genuinely enjoy summer before you have to start worrying about it being SUPER hot. It’s like that final step to getting everyone on board and ready for summer! This outfit pairing is perfect for the events. If you’re not one of those over the top people in your red, white and blue or american flag bikini; Red, White, and Denim is a great alternative if you want to show your patriotism. I paired this chambray tank with white shorts and my favorite black sandals. Chambray is wonderful for summer because it’s light weight and so cool to wear in the heat of the southern summer. This Gap tank I actually scored for $8 at a store called Dirt Cheap. Although, I couldn’t find this exact tank top, I did find these.

White Chino Shorts you NEED in your closet for summer. They’re a summer staple. You can wear them with basically anything. Old Navy, Gap, and J. Crew have my favorite ones. They all wash up well and are comfy! If you watch you can get Old Navy’s on sale! (Old Navy is currently having 30% off) All these brands have their shorts in different lengths so, you can purchase based on your preference! I’m ready for memorial day, and lake, and patio dinners, and swimsuits, and all the summer fun. I hope you find some outfit inspiration for memorial day or just everyday!   Xo, Signature

Accidental Weekend “Haul”

Haul

 Ever have an accidental haul? Where you don’t even realize until you get home and pull all the stuff out. That happened to me this past weekend. After wrecking my vehicle Friday morning I lost / misplaced a ton of my make up that I use when I apply makeup for clients. So, Saturday morning, in preparation for prom hair I had to grab some makeup. Then, after I got off work my parents and I ran to Little Rock to get my phone fixed at the Apple Store.

Conveniently, the Apple Store is dropped right in the middle of the cutest little shopping center Arkansas has ever seen. There’s TONS of good shopping and eating there which makes the hour you spend waiting for the Apple Geniuses go back extremely quickly. We ate at the big orange and while I sipped on a delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake we browsed.

Madewell Jeans

I’ll just say my mom and I have discovered Madewell and we are OBSESSED! I have followed Madewell on instagram forever but I didn’t really know much about them. They’re owned by the same company as J. Crew ( if I understood correctly ) but they are a little more casual. They’re known for their denim and I now know why. I picked up these Red High Rise Jeans. These jeans are great because one they’re comfy and two, they were $30!! Just go ahead and grab you a pair for that price because I promise you will not regret it! I’ve worn them already 3 times and I might just decide to wear them again! I am IN LOVE. They’re so soft and comfortable. Comfort in a pair of jeans is my FAVORITE thing to find. These things are like jammies; which I also love.

Charming Charlie’s

We also stopped in Charming Charlie’s. That store has ALWAYS been overwhelming to me. There’s just so much going on. I walk around in there with serious sensory overload because theres so many things catching my eye. I slowly wondered around while my mom looked for something she needed. As we were checking out I spied 3 things that I needed. 2 of which are these sun glasses. I love cheap plastic sunglasses. After losing 5 pairs of Raybans I decided cheap was my way to go.

These two pairs of sunglasses were 2 pair for $15! The Black Pair and The Pink Pair. Uh, you cannot beat that. I love these because they’re not your typical sunnies but also they don’t have rubber nose pieces to get caught in your hair. In the summer, when I’m poolside or at the lake  I hate when my hair is wet and my sunglasses rip my hair out. I cannot stand that. These are nose piece free and I am smitten over that blush pair. The other items I had to have was the pony tail bracelet that was floating around pinterest for a pretty penny. My mom found Logan and I both one for only $10! Just a couple of goodies you can never have too many of.

Flower Beauty Shimmer and Shade Eyeshadow Palette – Intense Natural
Let me preface this by saying, I have wanted this brush in this palette for, basically, ever. I wasn’t all around stunned with the colors of the palettes I just liked the brush. Secondly, I should have known by the title of the palette is was shimmery. With that being said, I wasn’t all around impressed with this palette and that really makes me sad. Last but not least, I do like the palette.
Small Rant:  It’s really hard to find eyeshadow palettes at the drugstore. I love a good palette that I can create multiple looks with plus, it makes traveling with makeup 100x easier.
Like I just said I do like this palette. The color are beautiful and they wear well throughout the day without getting creasing or moving around ( if you use Primer ). The pigment in the shadows is nice and there are a lot of great lid colors. But.. I can’t create a full eye look with this palette because all the shadows are shimmery. There are stunning colors in this. But, I have to dip into other palettes to make this one work for me. There isn’t a transition shade which makes blending difficult. This palette has a lot going for it. I can’t say I’d repurchase this knowing what I know now.
P.S. The brush though.. it’s a wonderful drugstore blending brush.
Real Techniques Beauty Sponge

ALLLLL the beauty bloggers I follow talk about how much they love this sponge. “It’s a dupe for the beauty blender,” they claim. I’m one of those people who repeats the things I like. I have sponged I like so when it’s time to repurchase I always buy the same ones. Well, it was that time again. So, when I went to pick up these other miscellaneous items I grabbed a pack of these sponges to give a test run. I love them. I’ve felt of them before and thought they were a little stiff. I don’t know if they have redesigned them or what but, oh, man!

I wash my sponge every morning before I put my makeup on. They work better damp and clean so it’s just a habit I have. They wash so nicely and apply my makeup even better! This sponge is so soft and easy to work with. one end is flat while the other is pointed. I use the flat side to apply my foundation all over my face and it works perfectly. Then, obviously the pointed end to apply concealer and such. I cannot believe I have waited so long to get on the bandwagon with these!

L’Oréal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream – Anti-redness
If you read mybare fair makeup post, you probably saw I recommended green primer and BB Cream. Both of those product, which I love, are not cheap. When buying two that is even harder on the budget, right? I stumbled upon this BB Cream and I am loving it. I struggle with redness in my cheeks and around nose. Almost all BB Creams require me to use a Concealer of some sort to hide the redness that peeps through the coverage.
This green primer goes on green to reduce redness but blends out and turns to a shade to help give coverage too. Funny Story: I was applying this at work one day. I just put it one with my fingers and was going in to add a little Concealer and I noticed when I touched my face it was changing colors. A coworker and I were mind blown until I discovered that it changed colors.. which took a few minutes to realize. Anyway, I thought it’d be something I could use to minimize redness in my cheeks and then I’d apply my makeup on top. The coverage is great for everyday. I am absolutely loving this product.
Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Oh, girl. I always try out new mascaras then go back to the ones I REALLY love once I get tired of trying out different ones. This mascara I used to use a LONG time ago. I was in a hurry and forgot so I just snatched this up while in the check out line. I always forget how much I love mascaras until something like this occurs. The brush is really fluffy brush. It gives GREAT volume and length. Colossal makes my lashes fat without taking away their length which is something I struggle to find. MY lashes are long but not super thick so I need something that will thicken them up but not shorten them too. This mascara.. if you decide you need anything from this haul.. let it be this one!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer : Shade – Fair
This is a repurchase for me. I love this concealer. It is said to be a dupe for NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer.In my opinion: it’s much creamier and the consistency isn’t as thick as the NARS. Lately, I have been trying different concealers because the people request it and I want to deliver. All the concealers I’ve tried in recent months are great for different things but this is still one of my favorites. I love the consistency of this Concealer.
I have problems with concealers settling in my undereye area and between my forehead (because ya girl needs a little Botox) Fit Me Concealer doesn’t seem to get crepey in my fine lines under my eyes, it’s not drying, and it doesn’t settle or separate. This concealer is one of Maybelline’s Best Sellers. It has natural Coverage, is lightweight and Oil-free.  My undereyes look very hydrated rather that powdery and dry. You know the look I’m talking about. If not I can link ya some pictures of me looking a little dehydrated. The Fit Me Concealer is extremely light weight and the blendability is wonderful. If you don’t feel like your blending skills are that of King Kylie you should give this a go. The coverage is very nice without it totally giving away the fact that yes, actually, I have concealed my undereyes.
Wet N’ Wild Mega Glow Highlighter : Precious Petals 
If you’re like me and you prefer a softer highlight this is your girl. Mega Glo is a powder Highlight / blush that will give you a beautiful glow. It gives off enough of a sheen to let your skin glow but not too much. And I believe in too much highlight. Ya know? I have caught myself thinking, no one is fooled by all that glow on your face. But, for the most part, I like my makeup to be fairly natural. Natural might be a stretch of the word but I don’t like it to look overdone. You know what I’m saying. Mega Glo gives your skin a glow rather than full on holy cow highlight. It has a teensy bit of glitter that I noticed dusted off pretty quickly then your left with a beautiful shimmer. This is a great drugstore highlight.
I have been SEARCHING high and low for a good highlighter from the drug store none just awed me. The cream ones seem to separated and we’re extremely intimidating to apply on top of your dressing foundationed skin. While others didn’t do what I was hoping. This one did. Wet N Wild never lets me down. I apply it at the top of my blush, almost overlapping my blush at the apple of my cheek. And, of course, on the tip of my nose and Cupid’s bow because.. Kathleen Lights told me to. It looks beautiful whether I wear a lot of makeup or barely there makeup.
Maybelline BrowPrecise Micro Crayon : Dark Brown

Usually, I go for the L’oreal Brow Stylist. I picked this one up by accident and I have been pleasantly surprised. The consistency of this is very similar to the consistency of the Brow Stylist and really like the Anastasia Brow Wiz. I was let down by the Anastasia Brow Wiz. This Micro Crayon is so easy to apply and use. It’s a really creamy formula and applies so smoothly. Once my brows are filled in they stay all day. That was part of my let down with the Brow Wiz. It didn’t stay well and smeared easily. This one ( and the L’Oreal Brow Stylist ) last all day!


This is hardly a “haul” in comparison but I some newly purchased items I am liking and some I’m not. I have tried out several new items and I am continuously looking for new stores and brands to share with you guys. Even new styles I think you guys would like are always in search. I am loving most of the product especially the jeans! Have you tried anything new lately or are you loving something you’ve loved for a long time? Let me know!

Perfection in Pineapple

I hear daily almost, “If I worked here, I’d be broke!” Usually, I have some pretty good self control when it comes to shopping at the salon. Usually is the key word there! As soon as this Pineapple Jacket was pulled from the box I knew it’d be something I would have to have! Self control, gone. This jacket would be mine! Jack by BB Dakota has mastered trendy fun pieces that aren’t typical fashion stapled. They give people like me a little something different to love.

Pineapple Perfection

The Jacket

This pineapple jacket is perfect for the current weather. It’d even look cute over my black and white outfit post! The color of this Pineapple Perfection makes it so versatile. You can see I paired it with these blush pants and the PREACH graphic tee ( remember this from my YAYA’s wish list post? ) I love to put prints on prints. I can’t wait to style this differently with a busier look to compliment so many peoples busy lives.

Versatility

This lightweight jacket is so comfy and fun. It’s great right now for the cool mornings and evenings but transition this into fall by wearing it over a striped long-sleeved shirt or graphic tee! Through the summer it can be worn with shorts or cutely tied around your waist just to give a little added something to your already cute outfit. I just can’t get over the perfection of this jacket.

The versatility of this jacket will really begin to show when you start pairing this with things you already have in your closet. Old Navy has some great shorts to pair with it. Also, throwing this on over a cute swing dress before a dinner date just to name a few.

The Rest of the Outfit

I paired this jacket with this adorable Preach muscle tank and these sneak peek blush jeans. Muscle tanks are my favorite type of tank top. You don’t have to wear a special bra to wear these tanks. You’re not having to hide straps or show off your back. Also, I love these jeans for the comfort. I’ve said a million times, “I love sneak peek denim.” These jeans are no different. They’re structured enough to hold their shape but comfy enough I can move and dance.. you know, if the mood strikes. These sandals are a target score. You’ve seen them before in several of my posts and I’m not ashamed that I continue wearing them. SO, there.

Stay tuned this week to see another way I styled this Perfect jacket. I couldn’t stop with just one outfit! It was impossible to do just one look with this. That’s how much I love it! If you love it you can snag it by coming by YAYA’s Clothing Boutique or messaging us on Facebook or Instagram! How would you style this jacket? Let me know in the comments below!

Top 5 T Shirt Dresses

T Shirt Dress
Year round I am hot. I am hot natured. A perfect summer dress is a constant go to. Sweaters are so cute and possibly my favorite winter style. They’re so cozy and comfy. I’m just going to say, “LoL” because unless I’m sitting very still I’ll be burning up in one. AND that’s when the outside temperature is less than my body temperature. If it’s below, let’s say, 50 to be generous I will be sweating. But, we’re not here to talk about sweaters. We’re here to discuss Dresses.
Knowing that I’m hot natured, imagine how miserable it is to wear jeans in this southern heat and arkansas humidity. Nearly impossible to bare. You can almost feel your jeans tighten against your body when you step outside on a hot summer day. For some reason, shorts aren’t acceptable all the time. *eyeroll* just kidding, but really, you can’t wear shorts everywhere. Insert Summer Dress. There’s nothing around your waist and almost nothing even touching the majority of your body. You can move, you can dance and you won’t sweat.
A couple of years ago, Nate and I went to a St. Louis Cardinals game for Memorial Day. I knew it was going to be hot. And I now know you’re basically sitting in a bowl and no air moves around the stadium. I wanted to wear a t-shirt dress. Nate did not understand why I would want to wear a dress to a baseball game. That was kind blowing to him. The revelation of a dress’ comfort and ultimately coolness rocked his world. After not being able to find a dress like I had in mind, I opted for a cardinals tank instead. It was miserably hot. I wished the whole time I’d searched harder and longer for a dress instead.
3 reasons I love a tshirt dress:
// They’re Comfy // They’re Cute // They’re Cool //
Dresses are something I can always get down with. They’re just easy. I always am up to purchase a new dress. But, I have my favorites. Being a dress connoisseur of sorts I’ve created a list of my top 5 t-shirt dresses. This list was cut down from a much longer list of dresses. I had to weed some out. 🙂 All the dresses that made the list are light weight, comfy, and wash great!

My Top 5 TShirt Dresses

1. Old Navy 2. Bobi  3. BB Dakota (Featured) 4. American Eagle 5. ASOS 
All 5 of these dress brands are different styles to cover all the bases. Plus, the J. Crew one from my Summer Resource Guide and favorites, According to Lynlee. There’s simple and classy to a little bit more edgy. You can style them however your heart desires too. They’re great for those of us who changes styles often. Sometimes, I want more rocker style and others I like more simple classic style. This is the perfect layering item to be able to change it up. These dresses are great for rainy summer days to pull on your rain boots and run out the door. Their versatility makes them worth their weight in gold.
Alothough, t-shirt dresses can’t be worn all day everyday, they can be worn often and to a lot of events. They’re dressy enough to wear to dinner or a concert but still casual enough to wear to a ball game or run errand on Saturday afternoon! What are your favorite Casual Summer Dresses? Let me know in the comments below!

Black on White

Simple and Monochromatic are my go to with fashion; most often Black and white. It’s easy and pretty almost always. Simple, polished looks are my favorite. I wish I was a minimalist with a lot of things in life. I would say that I am board line minimalist in my fashion choices. for the most part I wear basic and simple outfits. If they look polished and put together thats an even bigger perk!

I tend to follow along the pattern of black and white and grey. Anything in those three color draw me to them. I find myself wearing all too often black and white. I had put myself on a “no-buy” with these colors in an attempt to brighten my wardrobe. As I try to get away from these colors and go for more bright shades and more summery colors, I stumbled upon this tank. I’ll cover more on that later but, as soon as I saw it I couldn’t pass it up. I had to have it.

Of course, I went simple. I snagged this top at WALMART for $3.00!! I bought two actually. ( and one is floral! ) I paired this tank with white chino shorts and sandals. Chino Shorts are always a summer simple go to! You can wear them with anything. Even if you’re feeling lazy you look put together, I live for that kind of outfit!  This is a great outfit for brunch or even a day shopping. This entire outfit cost me less than $50! That’s prefect, am I right? I love a cheap outfit. I popped on this pink belt and pink Lipstick to add some color to my outfit and stick to my goal of brightening my wardrobe!

Black & White Favorites:

These tanks for summer are some of my favorites. I have a striped one, a white one, a floral one, and this black one!

Old Navy Chinos are my favorite. I always ruin them throughout the summer. I don’t feel bad when I stain them since they’re so cheaply priced!

Target has figured out the way to make cute, cheap sandals! These are actually pretty comfy and so stinking cute! It’s always my first place to shop for trendy sandals!

Black Tank | White Shorts | Sandals | Belt | Lip Stick |

Of course, Summer is for florals and brights. This week try out some monochromatic outfits! Plus, there’s much less white material that you have to worry about staining with white jeans! Where them fearlessly!

5 Denim Items you Need for Summer

Denim & Jean

Denim is my 90s Childhood style! I love denim of any sort. I love the comfort and versatility of a denim piece. No matter what you pair denim with it can become whatever you want it to be. Whether you call it jean, denim, or chambray the style and simplicity of it doesn’t change! No wardrobe is complete without these simple items.

Jean and Denim

  1. Jean Jacket

I just love, love, love a jean jacket. My jean jacket is always in my car, ya know, just in case. I wear it all the time. Over a t-shirt or dress. It’s always there when I need it and it’s in my jeep when I get chilly. I take it with me every weekend when I travel to Jonesboro. My denim jacket is worn more than any other jacket I own. You can wear denim jackets year round because they are light but warm enough! As a matter of fact, a couple weeks ago I noticed how dirty it was looking. I love this stinking jacket so much that I put it in the wash before work and I was sad because I couldn’t wear it that day! How pathetic is that!?

I used to really be annoyed with jean jackets. I felt bound up when I wore one. No matter how stretchy the denim I still felt like I couldn’t move. That’s a feeling this girl DOES NOT like. I want no part in that. What if I need to break out into some killer dance moves but I can’t because my jacket is to fitted? That cannot be. So, I found this jean jacket and I haven’t looked back. It’s a girlfriend fit jacket. It’s baggy enough but not too baggy, loose enough but still fitted enough that it doesn’t look oversized. Boyfriend fit things don’t compliment my body but, I have recently discovered that girlfriend fit things are so much more feminine and not just oversized. It fits today like it did the day I purchased it.. perfectly.

2. Denim Skirt

Seriously, 90s Lynlee is rejoicing. First, because Nancy Kerrigan is going to be on Dancing with the Stars. Secondly, because Denim Skirts are back in style. You’re probably going to get sick of me saying you can wear this with everything but, truly. I wore my jean skirt with a crop top and utility vest the first time I wore it. It was such a cute, understated outfit. It was so fun reminiscing on my younger days. My mom probably had to force me into a jean skirt kicking a screaming in those days but we’ll pretend I begged to wear it.

I cannot wait to wear my jean skirt with a body suit this summer. Body suits are totally on trend this year. I tried to wear them last year but they weren’t so popular here in Small Town USA. This year, body suits, coming at ya! That’d be considered a third reason 90s Lynlee is rejoicing. You’re going to need and want a denim skirt in your summer wardrobe. You heard it here first!

3. Denim Dress

My denim dress is a little more on the cool spring days. But, I’m in the market for another one. I love denim dresses. Stay tuned for a Fashionably Lazy post! Denim Dresses will be spotlight on that post. You can look so put together with essentially ZERO effort when you wear a denim dress. Who doesn’t want to look cute but make no effort to do so? everyone, thats who!

I have been eyeballing this dress –> at target because its adorable! Dressed up or down. The worst part about a cute denim dress is I can’t wear my cute denim jacket. *shrug* My favorite way to wear a jean dress is with my red converses. Hello, 4th of July Outfit, hint- hint.

4. Denim Romper

I’m not going to go into too much detail about why I love a denim romper but, I am going to say one thing about it. Okay 2 things. First, if you want to know why I love a denim romper you can check out my Weekend Romper Post. Secondly, No matter what your age is or what your plans include a jean romper is prefect! And put together with no effort. You win!

5. Denim Tank

Last but not least, a chambray tank. This is such a fun wardrobe item. There’s such a wide range of cute tanks. I have several, actually. There’s so much detail that has been added to these tanks. Luckily, right now the trend is denim on denim! I love that look. One of my favorite outfits is a jean jacket with Jeans OR denim tank with dark wash denim.

Denim tank tops can be worn with so much! I said I love them jeans on jean but, pair them with white shorts or colored skinnies! Anything goes!

Jean and Denim

How fun are these simple and versatile pieces? They are such easy ways to change up your outfit. From tossing a jean jacket on over your already adorable outfit or switching out your jeans for a denim skirt. The options are endless! Tag @lynleewyatt on your photos on instagram to show me how you styled your Denim Summer Needs!

St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day already!? How is that even possible? I feel like I was just making a Christmas List.. like that happened yesterday! But, onto summer and such.. Here’s how I’m avoiding getting pinched today!

Green for St. Patrick’s Day

I am obsessed with this top! The detail and frills on this shirt makes it not just another tank. It’s everything girly girls love! It’s got lace, it’s peplum, and the detailed back..  How beautiful is the color?! I love the boldness of the color. This tank is going to be so cute paired with white shorts this summer! But, for now.. Jeans. I may be reaching for Kelly Green more often. As soon as I saw this I thought it was so pretty! This has been boxed up since before Christmas because it was too cold to wear. For now, its still pretty cold around here! But, it’s still cute.. so CUTE!

This tank made my spring break packing list. It’s so flattering and cute! I’ll be happy dancing every time I get a chance to wear this.

You can grab this at Yaya’s Clothing Boutique!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t get too wild tonight and wear your green!

    I just love the wash of these jeans. The light denim is all over for spring fashion. Sneak Peek Jeans scream comfort as soon as you slip them on. You will not want to take them off, seriously. They’re like pajamas! I can’t get enough of these jeans.

  2. Pink // White Stripe Off the Shoulder Bow Sleeve Top

    I am in love with the top! It’s so cute and the details are everything that gives girls life in the spring. The cinched bow sleeves are 3/4 length to keep you warm in this crazy weather! It’s heavy cotton and will look so cute this summer with white shorts! Because, everything goes with white shorts! honestly..

  3. Sofft Shoes

    These wedges are SOOO comfy! They are cute and great for everyday! If you work a job that requires you to be on your feet a lot these shoes need to become part of your collection! These shoes look so great with skirts, dresses, and jeans.

  4. Preach Muscle Tee

    I will forever LOVE a great muscle tee and graphic tee. Graphic tees get me every single time! This one is cute and gives you a little giggle, ya know? Tees like this can be dressed up or down and are cute year round! Tanks are part of my year round wardrobe. My tank tops are never packed up. I wear them with cardigans and flannels both. I just want it, okay?

  5. Pink Pocketed Swing Dress

    I absolutely adore this dress. Cotton Dresses for summer are my love language! I need them all. I’m so hot natured that dresses are practically the only thing that keeps me cool when I don’t have the option for shorts. Sometimes, even when shorts are an option I still opt for dresses. They’re comfortable, they’re functional, and cute!

  6. PJ Set

    Basically, anything that fits under the category of loungewear has my name all over it! I love comfy anything. If said comfy thing it soft and cute.. Oh, Lord! I have to have these! You can never have enough PJs. Plus, All my pjs except one pair are christmas PJs so, Imma have to buy these.

    Spring Wish List

  7. Suede Camel Tennis Shoe

    These shoes are such a cute summery alternative to sandals. I don’t enjoy wearing sandals to work in. Also, finding comfy sandals to stand in all day long is a task. So, this is a good choice to trade out sandals for the work day.

  8. Floral Pocket Tee

    Basically, I love all things can that be worn a million different ways. This tee is a perfect example. These blush sneak peek jeans, white jeans, white shorts, jeans.. the list is endless..

  9. Blush Sneak Peek Jeans

    These jeans do really go with EVERYTHING. Blush is the new black. Not really but pretty much. I can & have paired these jeans with so many things!

My wish list for Yaya Clothing Boutique is super lengthy. I see clothes in here all the time. I have a constant rotating wish list. This list is fairly short and I could have gone on and on but I kept it short for you. I’ll keep you updated on Wish Lists as they change! I can’t wait to see more spring and summer stuff that comes in!

Spring Break Needs List

Spring Break is the happiest time of the year.. after Christmas. Its like the ultimate welcome to summer. (that is until you come back to the frigid Arkansas Spring) I think Arkansans are wired to want to go to the beach for spring break.. I know I always want to be at the beach all the time but particularly around Spring Break.. because being in the adult world we aren’t allotted an actual “Spring Break” But, it’d be cool if we were.

In Arkansas most people go south for spring break. Beach people live here in Arkansas. We are equipped to deal with humidity. Our bodies are made to love the sun, our brains programmed to love the sand, and our souls crave the salt. It is what it is. There’s no way around it. We love the beach. And, granted, maybe I’m just talking about myself and if thats the case and you hate the beach.. I have plenty of other posts you can read that don’t involve my love for the ocean. 

I’ve packed for the beach a million times. I wish I was packing for the beach now! But, in my experience heres a list of the things you actually need when you go to the beach!

In your Travel Bag

Spring BreakBackpack | Swimsuit | Dry Shampoo | Sunnies |

I love to carry a backpack when I travel.. That way everything is easy to get to AND its super easy to carry. When its time to unload I don’t have my hands full trying to carry my travel bag ( Carry On if you will ) and suitcase along with everything else..

  1. Purse

    Usually, when I travel this acts as my purse and I put my actual vacation purse in my suitcase so That’s one less bag I have to carry.

  2. Makeup Necessities

    Just the necessities.. Foundation, Mascara, and Blush. Just in Case. If it fits in my 5 minute morning routine it fits in my travel bag.

  3. iPad

    Because no one travels without them anymore

  4. Swimsuit

    If I’m flying the swimsuit goes in my travel bag.. Just in case my luggage gets lost, I’ll at least have that!

  5. Headphones

    I cannot travel without headphones

  6. Dry Shampoo

    Because I don’t go anywhere without it!

In your Beach Bag..

Which BTW: Should be a cute one..

Spring Break

Swimsuit Top // Bottom | Hat | Sandals | Cover Up | Graphic Tee |
Shorts | Sunnies | “Lynlee” Cup | Beach Blanket | Notebooks |

  1. Swimsuit

    I mean, hello! If you’re going to the beach and you were to only take one thing this would be the one thing you should take.  Luckily thats not the case. Everything else is optional but a swimsuit is nonnegotiable. I love Giani Bini Swimsuit from Dillards. These bottoms are GB Highwaisted Bottoms. This top is from target and I’ve had some good luck at Target.

  2. Towel

    To lay on.. to dry off.. You must take a towel. This fell under the obvious category for a reason..

  3. Hat + Headband

    Your hair in your face.. or sunburnt face & Ears.. Nothing is more annoying than your face getting burn on day one. Put on a hat and put on your sunscreen.  See number 6. Also, this hat is from one of my moms friend’s embroidery company; A Blessed Mess. I linked her Facebook page under the picture or check it out –> Here

  4. Sandals

    Because sand and ANY OTHER shoe don’t mix. I love these birkenstocks they’re comfy and easy to walk long distances in.

  5. Cover up

    If you do end up burn sitting in the sun knowing your just adding to your burn is the worst. There have been trips that after I burnt I would still want to enjoy the beach life. Insert Cover up here. This tie dyed cover up dress is adorable over any swimsuit. it’s lightweight and flowy and will dry so quickly! I also love the columbia PFGs because they dry quickly and they aren’t hot at all! Plus, how cute are they with your monogram? So cute! Also, I love the free people trapeze dresses over my swimsuit.. they dry quickly and are comfy!

  6. Sunscreen

    For your body and your face.. Wrinkles are real. Sunburns are miserable. Put on the Sunscreen.

  7. Floaty

    I’ve got a Pizza Slice, Its oh, so fun and its so fun in the water!

  8. Denim Shorts + Cute Graphic Tee

    Just a good basic outfit. Plus super nice to pull on after a day at the beach. This is the Spring Break Uniform.. and Lets talk about how cute this Preach Muscle Tee is! You can get it at Yaya’s!

  9. Sunnies

    Do I need to elaborate? Plus, These are TOO cute!

  10. Speaker + Headphones

    Let’s just make the beach more enjoyable by adding some tunes..

  11. S’well Bottle

    We cannot be getting dehydrated while in the sun and on vacation. Grab you a bottle or cup that’ll keep your drinks cold through the whole day of sun bathing. I love my swell bottle. It’s great for the beach because it has a screw top. You won’t have to worry about getting sand into your drink and your beverage will stay cold for hours!

  12. Lifeproof Nud Case
    Nothing worse than being somewhere far from home and ruining your phone. A waterproof case is almost as necessary as a swimsuit. This Nud Case is so slim and easy to handle. I love it!
  13. Chapstick

    My lips get so chapped when I’m beach side. I always take chapstick with me. Also, there are few things more painful than sunburnt lips.

  14. Magazines, Good Book, iPad

    Oceanside entertainment. One can only lay still getting a tan so long before they need to do something.

  15. Beach Blanket

    A towel is such a small space to put all your stuff if you’re like me and don’t want sand in EVERYTHING. A beach Blanket allows you to kind of stretch out and have extra space to put your stuff.

  16. Snacks + Drinks

    I’m a snacker! Sour Patch Kids, Skittles, Cuties, Crystal Light Packets all get dropped into my bag as I’m running to the beach!

  17. Wallet // Wristlet

    If you’re staying far away  from the beach you’re going to need to carry your dollars.. just in case. If you have a functional purse you can throw a wristlet from one bag to the next.

  18. Notebook

    I just always carry notebooks with me everywhere. If a thought strikes or something I need to remember crosses my mind..

Fashion Items

Spring Break requires you to take multi-purpose outfits because of the weather! You have to be practical but keep in mind that we still want to look cute and springy. It’s crazy you can go from tanks to sweater in a matter of hours.. I love dresses in when I’m at the beach. You look cute and feel cute but you’re comfy! So comfy! I wish I was a reasonable packer but, I’m not. I pack everything except the kitchen sink. You never know what you might need.. Heres a list of some things you’ll definitely need!

Wardrobe Essentials
  1. Flowy, Lightweight Dress

    If you’re burnt, its so horrible to have to wear jean shorts and a shirt. I love throwing on a flowy dress when I’m burnt. It helps avoid some of the pain.

  2. Sweater

    This beautiful sweater is SOOO cozy and the color makes it transition into spring without a hitch! I’ll be rocking this with shorts as the seasons start changing. This sweat would be perfect  to wear walking along the beach at night or dinner out! Plus, one those chilly nights you’ll be grateful for something cute and warm!

  3. Jacket

    The Weather during spring break is tricky! It may or may not be warm at your destination. I’ve been twice when it was too cold to even get in the water and the wind was blowing so hard you didn’t really want to be on the beach at all. Of course, we endured the cold and sat out there anyway. A Denim Jacket goes with almost everything and they’re not bulky to pack.

  4. Light Weight Pull over

    A light weight pull over is a necessity. Any time I travel anywhere I pack a sweatshirt. Whether it be an over night trip or a vacation. It’s almost like a security blanket.. or Jacket.. See this Post –> Here.

  5. Comfy Denim Shirt

    This is also great to throw on over your swimsuit but also great for sunburnt days too! Denim on denim or denim with colored jeans is always cute plus layering with denim is cake.

  6. Cute Jammies

    If you’re staying with a group of people.. Jammies are always good to pack for the late nights or watching movies or lounging around.. or early morning breakfast before you get ready for a day in the sun!

  7. White Jeans + Blue Jeans + Blush Jeans

    First of all, all three of these colors of jeans go with EVERYTHING. Secondly, they instantly brighten up any outfit. So, while you’re beaching and wanting to look bright and extra colorful.. Plus, all three of the shirts I put in there coordinate with all the jeans.

  8. Wedges + Closed Toed Shoes

    Cute Healed Sandals or wedges are a must pack. These soft wedges are SOOO comfy! A pair of camel wedges are so easy to throw on with everything in your suitcase. I love camel because you can easily wear them with black or brown! You’re going to want wedges for dinner or night out. Then, of course, the closed toed shoes for nights it gets extra chilly, shopping or you’re walking a little more than usual. I adore these tennies. This style shoes can be worn with basically everything.. like everything else I love.

Accessories

  1. Strapless Bra + Regular Bra

    Dragging out all your tanks for the Spring weather you’ll be glad you packed a strapless bra AND if your shoulders are super burnt you may can get away with wearing a strapless bra to keep the pain away.

  2. Functional Purse

    You’re going to need a bag that is multi functional. I hate packing multiple purses. Pick a purse that goes with all your outfits and is easy to shop with, wear to dinner etc.

  3. Simple Jewelry

    In an attempt to not have to worry, costume jewelry is the way to go. Cheap Jewelry that you don’t have to worry about breaking, losing or ruining your vacation is the only thing I take. I love Walmart and Forever 21 for cute cheap jewelry. Also, Rue 21 has some super fashion piece that you won’t wear a lot but at the beach you can get away with everything so rock that wild jewelry!

Beauty Items

  1. Lotion

    Your skin gets so dehydrated from the sun and the salt. It’s such a great feeling to put lotion on your dry skin after a day in the sun. 

  2. Moisturizing Face Masks

    This is just a fun one with a huge perk. Your skin is dehydrated and so your face isn’t getting skipped in that. Moisturizing Face Masks are great to put on at night to keep your face moisturized and avoid peeling and flaking!

  3. Shampoo, Conditioner, + Leave in Conditioner / UV Protectant

    UV Protectant isn’t spoken about enough in my opinion. Especially if you have colored hair this is like a sunscreen for your hair. It keeps your color from fading and getting damaged from the sun!

  4. Detangling Comb // Wet Brush

    After a day in the sun, sea, and wind you’re going to be grateful to have something to brush your hair out with!

  5. Waterproof Mascara + BB Cream

    Along with the rest of your makeup bag don’t forget waterproof mascara. You don’t want to have black running down your face when you’re caught by an unexpected wave. And you may want a little coverage for your face but not wanting a whole face of makeup. Grab your BB Cream for a light coverage but still beach ready look!

  6. Glasses + Extra Contacts

    I love taking my contacts out after a day at the beach. It feels so refreshing!

  7. Pony Tail Holders + Bobby Pins

    You do not want to be caught at the beach with your hair down.
