A Little Fashion + A Linkup

Happy Monday! Today I am doing something I have never done before and am talking about fashion! I’ve realized over the past few months that I really enjoy coming up with cute outfit ideas, so I thought I would talk a bit about them here! This is a learning process for me, though, so I probably won’t have a lot of links and similar clothes mentioned or anything like that for a while, but I will tell you about what I’ve worn! Here’s what I wore to church yesterday:

The dress is a new one that I picked up from Altar’d State not too long ago, and it’s one of my favorites to wear right now. It’s so comfortable! The chambray shirt is at least a year old, possibly two, but I wear it ­all the time. Oh, and I got it at Ross. The key necklace is one of my favorite statement pieces, but I actually can’t remember where I got it. It’s old as well. And the nude ballet flats I just got maybe about 6 months ago, and they are my go to shoes for literally every outfit. They’re from Target, but I feel like you can find them absolutely anywhere.

Now let me talk about my nails and make-up—or lack thereof—for a minute. When it comes to make-up, I simply don’t wear any. I’ve struggled with acne for a while now, and I’ve noticed that make-up does ­not help matters at all. So I just keep it simple and go natural. Besides, make-up is just something I’m not good at, and it doesn’t really bother me to go without it. Nails, though, are a different story. I absolutely love creating cute nail art, so my nails are constantly painted. If you can tell from the above picture, my nail polish is dark, way darker than I normally paint them, but that is completely purposeful. Check them out!

Although the blue is a little darker than I wanted it to be, I absolutely had to paint my nails with a design that supported my baseball team, especially since they are currently on their way to the World Series! Okay, so they haven’t exactly finished playing in the ALCS yet, but they are already leading the series 2-0, so I am extremely confident that they will make it to the World Series. Anyway, I knew as soon as we beat the Red Sox in the ALDS that I absolutely had to come up with a design to cheer them through the ALCS! So, I bought some blue nail polish, and created this cute design with the C for the Cleveland Indians! And that’s what I wore this past Sunday!

And now on to the linkup!


First, I’m featuring Casey from Cattails, Rabbit Trails, and Thistlefish with her post about the books on her bookshelf.

Second, I’m featuring Shea from Shea Lennon and her post about her super cute outfit composed of a striped dress and adorable moto jacket.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring me Mackenzie!! That put a smile on my face this morning :) I love your outfit--that dress looks so perfectly comfortable but so cute. I feel like I could live in a dress like that, and I wear my chambray shirt non-stop.
    And go Indians! I've been rooting them on this post-season too. I'm a loyal Royals fan but when I knew we wouldn't make the post-season I wanted to cheer on the Indians, since they're in our division and I think they're a great team (plus I know some great Ohio people!). Love the nails :)

    1. You're so welcome! Thank you!! It is the most comfortable dress I own, and it feels like pajamas! Yay! I'm so glad to hear you're cheering them on too, although I'm sorry that you dont' get to cheer on your own team. Thanks, they're one of my favorite designs! :)

  2. Super cute outfit!!! The dress is going to be so great for the entire season; you can dress it up/down in so many different ways!

    Thanks for the feature!!! <3

    1. Thank you! It really will, that helped me to decide to buy it! You're so welcome!

  3. That's awesome you're sharing your look with us! I too have struggled with acne. However I do use makeup ... Clinique foundation. At least for me, I've found that it gives my skin a more clear and polished look. But everyone is different and I for sure do not believe everyone or anyone needs makeup. You look beautiful without it of course :)


    1. Thank you, I'm really glad I am! I did still use makeup for a while, but it just isn't really my think, although I do sometimes miss the way it makes my skin look. Thank you so much, that compliment right there made my day!
