HELLO, but has anyone else been totally in love with the New & Improver FOREVER 21?!
They have totally been stepping up their game & we are loving it! We can find so many cute & trendy pieces now + they’re at affordable & reasonable prices.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

We just wanted to write up this quick post letting you know what we scored there within this past week.
We got the cutest bandana’s, pouches, bracelets & necklaces, + bralette’s & they were ALL under $10! HOW INSANE IS THAT? But, we’ll take it.

Happy Thursday, babes!

We’ve realized that we’ve been getting a lot of new followers so we realized that a lot of you may not even know who we are – so we figured there’s no better way to end this amazing collab with LUX than by just talking a little bit about who we are.

We’re childhood friends, fellow coffee lovers, both born and raised in the heart of Southern California.

You can almost always find us at a coffee shop spending necessary (some say unnecessary)amounts of money & drinking copious amounts of coffee or you can always find us by the food at any part or event.

Jesus is the motivation behind everything that we do – our goal in life is to spread His love & joy wherever we go.

Fashion is one of our passions. We love all kinds of different trends and never feel as if we’re confined to one style but we’re always down to try everything.

We’re two awkward & real girls that just want to be honest with you about our lives + the things & companies that we love. We experience life and adventure together & there’s no better way to do that than to document these memories/milestones in our lives on our blog for our future selves to look back on.

AND THAT’S A WRAP, LADIES. That’s it for this series with LUX. We hope you guys loved all the outfits as much as we did + we hope you’re as sad as we are that this is over, lol. But don’t worry, we’re sure it’s not the last.

Don’t forget to check out LUX‘s website because they’re always adding the cutest things + always have new arrivals. Or, if you live in Southern California don’t miss out on the opportunity to go into their store & see the cuteness in person.

Also, one last shoutout to Raul for the most breath-taking pictures.

Part 4 of 5 of this Lux Series & we’re so sad that it’s already almost over. If you’re as sad as we are, don’t worry guys, I’m sure this won’t be our last series with LUX.

LET’S TALK ABOUT TWO PIECE SETS, LADIES-

One of the biggest trends this summer (& even last summer) has been Two Piece Sets –> Seriously we can’t get enough of them!

They’re so easy to put on – like they LITERALLY come pre-matched leaving you with no work – but we feel like they can almost make you feel a little out of the box too- since not everyone & their mother are wearing them yet. We’re huge fans of not looking + being like everyone else but just being ourselves & as crazy as this sounds – we totally feel like two piece set’s help us do just that.

JOY’S SET-

Clear Bloom Skies Duo Set

What is it about a skirt/dress that goes past the knee’s that just makes it oh so dreamy & classic? We have no idea what it is but we’re not gonna question it because we CANNOT get enough! It is so unbelievably stunning because it can also be either dressed up or down. This two piece that Joy is rockin’ is to die for – it’s perfect for going out on a summer night.

JUSTI’S SET-

Seaside Sway Set

This set is definitely a little bit more on the dressy side, but OMG can we just talk about this pattern? It’s seriously such a gorgeous floral pattern that is just unique in general to clothing + fashion right now – We’ve yet to see a pattern like this anywhere else. This set is so perfect for a spring/summer wedding, going out for dinner, or even to just run around the fields in. (what we did) Let’s not miss out on the opportunity to get this dress while it’s still in stock, ladies. 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

That’s it for this post! We hope you enjoyed our little chit chat about these SETS that we are currently loving!

Summer is (sadly) already half-way gone & then we’ll be back to longing those rays of sunshine, the care free nights, & the bronzed skin that comes with summer. While we still have the advantage of enjoying our summer & the rest that it holds for us, we’re gonna talk about some of our summer essentials. We decided not to narrow it down to just beauty or fashion on this post when it comes to our essentials + but we decided to make it just about our essentials for life, whether it be outfits or drinks.

With that being said, let’s jump into —-> JOY & JUSTI’S SUMMER ESSENTIALS!

LUX-0488

O U R  1 0  S U M M E R  E S S E N T I A L S 
1 . C O F F E E.
Who doesn’t love an iced cold brew + some coconut milk?
(for those of us with the issue of being lactose intolerant *cries*)
Perfect if you just want some caffeine but don’t want the 30 pumps of sugar that most latte’s have.
2 . L A V E N D E R.
Anything lavender is perfect for some summer (or just life) relaxation!
Lavender tea, Lavender Essential oil, etc. – we LOVE. It’s automatically calming and soothing.
3 . R O M P E R S.
So easy to throw on & it looks like you tried – we’ve said it before but this is our FAV.
Looking like you tried without actually having to.
4 . T H E  B E A C H.
We live in Southern California, so it’s not really summer here until you’re at the beach getting some sun and tanning!
5 . M A K E U P  P R I M E R.
Hourglass primer is a favorite and a must, so our faces don’t melt off, lol.
This primer may be a little pricier than most, but it’s worth the $$$ girls, I PROMISE!
6 . F L O R I D A  G E O R G I A  L I N E  &  S A M  H U N T.
You can almost always catch joy & justi in the car, rocking out to these guys….
or any country music at that point * heart eyes *.
7 . S P F.
We love a perfect sunscreen with an spf of 15 because you can still get tan but it keeps you from turning into a complete tomato… more like it keeps Joy from turning into a tomato because Justi is Colombian and well…she tans a lot better than Joy, to say the least.
8 . B E A C H  B L A N K E T S.
Round towels, tapestries, mexican blankets … we love them all for laying out on the sand!
(Seriously, if you haven’t use a tapestry as a beach towel/blanket, you’re missing out!)
9 . A V O C A D O  T O A S T.
Love, love, love.
You can keep it basic, just seasoned with salt & pepper or garlic salt, or spice it up with some dill cream cheese or cucomber …. or both!
10 . N E T F L I X.
Summer is always a good time to binge watch serval seasons of your new found favorite show on netflix! If you haven’t already, prison break is a must.

Back at it again with PART 2 of this series! WHO’S EXCITED?
In part 2, we obviously wanted to –
point out these adorable outfits,
+ also give you a quick on video on how to do 3 bun looks.

FIRST THINGS FIRST – LET’S TALKS BUNSSSS!

These THREE looks are so easy & effortless – they all literally take less than 3 minutes to do.
These are perfect for summer because they take your hair out of your face + your eyes for those especially hot days. (especially us in this Southern California heat.)

ALRIGHT – LET’S TALK ABOUT THESE OUTFITS, LADIES!

LUX-0315 LUX-0300 LUX-0311

Growing up dancing for 15 years – I’ve (Justi here!) never really been a fan of leotards/body suits just because I feel like I’ve pretty much spent my entire life in them + it usually just feels weird wearing them as regular clothes. BUT, this off the shoulder body suit is seriously 1. the most comfortable thing ever 2. so cute & simple. I’m loving it as a staple piece for summer that can either be dressed up or dressed down.
This skirt is unlike anything I’ve ever worn (or really even come across). Honestly, putting it on kinda makes you feel like a goddess that doesn’t need to work & can just frolic in a field all day. (true story) This is definitely a perfect piece for summer because it’s so effortless + practically weightless.

Rompers, Rompers, ROMPERS!
When I think of summer, I think effortless & to me that equals a romper! Romper’s are seriously a closet essential because they’re so easy to either dress up or dress down. (it doesn’t take much to do either)
If you’re trying to go for a casual look – you can just throw on this romper, throw your hair in either a full bun or a half up half down, & throw on some sandals.. & you’re SET. Making it casual & looking like you tried, without actually having to.
If you wanna dress up this romper – pair it with your favorite pair of booties, put on a darker or brighter lipstick, accessorize-accessorize-&accessorize some more, + curl your hair & you just turned a simple romper into a nice “going out” outfit.
