Celeb Look Alike: AJM

Transitioning summer pieces into fall can actually be pretty simple with a few tips. First, booties are a great shoe to pair with anything. It makes the outfit feel more appropriate for fall. Second is a scarf. Pop a scarf over a tee or even a dress for that cozy look. Lastly, add a light jacket over top of your outfit to not only keep you warmer but to add layers and dimension. Since AZ is still pretty hot I simply added booties to this dress to rough it up a little for fall. This would also look amazing with a black leather jacket.

This Tracy Reese dress was spotted on the TV series Hart of Dixie. We love how she incorporated the belt to cinch in the waist. Here is how I styled it :)

Outfit: Repeat Offender

Okay you caught me...but this Baby Jules headband is just too good to wear only once a week... :) I thought it paired perfectly with these flared Mother jeans and Joie peasant top. Flared jeans just scream fall to me! And what better way to transition your summer boho tops than with a pair of these jeans?!

Snag both of these items on AJM today! I hope everyone is having a great Thursday so far :)

Outfit Post: Long Time

Long time no see guys! Not going to lie...I don't think I have ever been so busy before. The wedding is in two months, my new job {which I love} working with all my sponsors/clients and making time for friends and's pretty crazy around here. I apologize for the lack of posting. Here is what I am wearing today!

tee Infinite-Chic, kimono Shop Love Threads, jeans {old}, headband Baby Jules Boutique, booties Forever 21, Michael Kors watch, assorted bracelets, sunnies {old}

You know I love graphic tees and this one is no exception. This tee from Infinite Chic not only has a quirky saying on it, it is extremely comfortable! Grab yourself one, you won't be disappointed!

Hello Lashes

For the longest time I have been searching for that "it" mascara and well ladies...I think I have found it. The sweet Brianne Geiger from Mama With Those Lashes and I met up last week and she introduced me to Younique 3D mascara. Seriously guys...this bad boy works wonders. It is hypo-allergenic, waterproof, non-damaging and naturally based. I love it so much that I am not planning on wearing falsies for my wedding! It's that good! See my before and after photos below :)

If you are interested in purchasing some of your own 3D mascara or have any questions on the Brianne {here} and follow her on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter :)

Outfit Post: Back To School Basics

I may not be going "back to school" this fall but this time of year for many of you can be stressful, especially in the wardrobe department. Instead of walking into Forever 21 and buying everything in sight{nothing against Forever them}, invest in quality pieces that can be worn over and over again. Not only does this save closet space it saves you a ton of money in the long run. Here is a go to look brought to you by AJM Fashions that is perfect for back to school.

Distressed boyfriend jeans, a simple tank, blazer and sandals are my go-to when I don't know what to wear. This look is appropriate for almost any occasion! Don't forget to check out AJM Fashions site and get 15% off with the code ALYSSA15 :) Happy Monday guys!
