It all began with a pair of Vejas x Madewell star-print leather sneakers. The first time I wore them with a dress I knew there was no turning back. Feeling cute, feminine, AND comfy?!

5 Pieces to Chic Up Your Travel Style

5 Pieces to Chic Up Your Travel Style

5 Pieces to Chic Up Your Travel Style 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Last year was a pretty big travel year for me with two trips to London and a family friend’s wedding in Ireland! This year has been a bit more tame with a few amazing trips this side of the pond. But I’ve been jealous watching everyone else’s getaways on Insta this summer! This got me thinking about how much I love airport and travel style (for real…Pinterest board dedicated to inspo here). Usually I opt for my go-to athleisure favorites for traveling. But when I shot this travel look, I started to think how it would be a great option for a more chic approach to travel style. It still has every element of comfort that I look for when I travel – just a little more structured!

Today, I’ll be sharing 5 travel style essentials to be comfortable and still look chic. Make sure to scroll down to find out what they are!

Top 5 Travel Style Essentials:

1. Casual Drape Trench

Are you one of those people that’s always cold? Because I AM, and I think I’d have a panic attack if I went to the airport without a jacket or trench like this! A drapey trench is a very chic, classic alternative to a sweatshirt or oversized cardi. You can also wear it with so much, so style it with your outfits on your trip – less to pack! This trench would be the perfect option. I have my eye on it – it keeps going on sale and I need to get it ASAP!

2. White Leather Sneakers

If you’ve heard me say it once, you’ll hear me say it again: A pair of white leather sneakers are a must-have for your wardrobe in today’s world. Especially for the airport with all of the walking, and I don’t know about you, but I just want a closed toe shoe option when on the plane. And now with pre-check it’s easier to wear sneaks because you don’t have to take your shoes off. (Or opt for a slide-on sneaker for easy removal if you fly without pre-check!) There are so many styles out there; you’re bound to find one that you love and that flatters you!

Sharing some of my favorites below:

3. Stretchy High-Waisted Jeans

There’s nothing I love more for my travel style than a high waist. That tucked in/sucked in feeling is hard to beat! These jeans would be the only ones that I would *ever, ever, ever* fly in because they are so comfy. Jeans can be just as cozy as a legging but formalize a look just a wee bit more!

4. Sleek Backpack OR Structured Leather Bag

I’ve always been one to grab an oversized tote for travel. But mostly traveling in a carry-on this year has really forced me to learn #minimalism. Enter the backpack. I found a backpack by this brand at TJ Maxx and have loved it ever since. It fits SO MUCH and the nylon is easy to wipe off if anything gets on it etc. Just the way it’s made allows for me to fit my must-haves or suitcase overflow into it easily and still stay organized!

On the other hand, a very structured, perhaps smaller leather bag can be a great travel option to house just your essentials you’ll need on the plane: headphones, makeup/toiletries, water, a book? I love a bag that’s small so it can slide under a plane seat easily but still roomy on the inside. Madewell and Cuyana have amazing options at really great price points. I also recommend choosing a pebbled leather option because it’s a bit more durable and stain-resistant than other leather textures!

5. Comfy Button-Down Blouse

Last but not least, there’s definitely a way to wear a silky or button-down blouse to the airport and still be comfortable. Athleta has an incredible line of athleisure clothes that are specifically made for travel and even work! I love this button down; it would be such a breeze to throw on and go. The silk shirt that I’m wearing in this post is from Everlane – very comfy and very affordable! They have so many classically tailored options that are designed with real women in real life in mind. You don’t have to look far for comfort from them – take a look here!

Must-Have Summer Essentials Wishlist

Must-Have Summer Essentials Wishlist 735 800 neverwithoutlipstick

The summer solstice can’t come soon enough! Whenever the temps near 85 degrees, I just want to be poolside with an iced tea in hand. So on days when it’s pouring down rain, I’ve been dreaming of warmer days and putting together my ultimate summer essentials wishlist!

My Must-Have Summer Style Picks

Top US fashion blog Never Without Lipstick shares her must-have summer essentials | madewell jean shorts, flatlay fashion, flatlay outfit, flatlay photography, madewell white sneakers

I’m loving all things linen, hot pink, powder blue, and any and all statement earrings…and more! I’ve broken down my summer essentials by category below – hope you enjoy ūüôā

Summer Essentials: Tops

The other day I was getting ready to go to dinner with friends when I realized that I’m lacking in the “fun summer top” department! Here are a few tops that I think will help me fix that…

  • As you know, I adore my neutrals, but there’s something about this coral off-the-shoulder top that I can’t pass up. I love how they’ve styled it with high-waisted blue jeans! So summery & versatile. (Use code ITSBEENAWHILE for $25 off your purchase of $100 or more!)
  • Nothing screams summer more than gingham and a halter neckline! This top combines both! But I’m also dying over this puff-sleeve gingham blouse that would be¬†perfect for work.
  • It’s always smart to factor in an airy, peasant blouse to pair with white jeans/light wash denim/your go-to jean shorts etc. This blouse is gorgeous, and the violet floral pattern is so delicate with its watercolor-like details!
  • For a classic summer staple, you can’t go wrong with a white linen button-down – love that this one is under $60.
  • This white v-neck blouse could go with almost every summer outfit. The texture is luxe & SO soft. I love how it lays tucked in or not! I recommend sizing down in this top as it runs a bit bigger.

Summer Essentials: Bottoms

SHOP THIS CASUAL SUMMER LOOK:

Top | Jeans (Wearing 27 but could have done 26) | Shoes (Wearing size 38/US 7) | Headband

  • A pair of light wash denim is practically a must when it comes to summer essentials. Lately, I’ve been reaching for this pair of skinny jeans any chance I can get (see them styled again here)! The fit is so flattering which isn’t always the case with lighter-hued denim, especially in my experience with my more curvy body type. I recommend sizing down 1-2 sizes in these because they stretch out a lot. I’ve had to throw my pair in the dryer a couple of times to tighten them up a bit! But the way they loosen and conform to your body as you wear them is what makes them so extremely comfy to wear.
  • When it comes to summer shorts, I lean more toward the modest, tailored end of the spectrum. But I’m not talking bermuda shorts! Those are safely in my 6th grade past ūüėČ I found two pairs of very flattering and classic options at Club Monaco for this season. They are an investment (the whole store *is* 25% off right now though) but finding a fit this flattering is rare and worth every penny for me! I went true to size (size 6) in both of these.
    • This skort is so chic and crazy flattering; I will be wearing it nonstop!
    • These pleated shorts are so fun and easy to dress up or down. They had them styled in the store with a white tee and sneakers – so cute and easy!
  • When I do reach for jeans shorts, though, you better believe it’s a pair from Madewell. These are the¬†best¬†jean shorts ever…no joke (wrote them a whole love letter here). They’re¬†so flattering and comfortable and that’s coming from someone who usually HATES wearing shorts.

Summer Essentials: Dresses

Dress (size 6 but needed taking in in the bust) | Shoes (wearing size 37) | Earrings (15% off with code GJxASHLEY)

  • This white Shoshanna midi dress is my new all-time fave. You really can style it so many ways from work to the weekend. It’s $135 when it used to be nearly $400!
  • This shirtdress is so elegant and classic in its silhouette. It would make an instant summer closet staple to be worn so many ways. And it’s under $80!
  • If you didn’t already know, I’m a big time Maxxinista. Last week, my mom found me this amazing, ruffled blue and white linen/cotton blend Rebecca Taylor midi dress at TJ Maxx that I’ll probably never take off. There are SO many amazing Rebecca Taylor dresses available there right now for so much less. (Like this floral midi, this black mini with lace detailing, or this darling ruffled hem shirtdress!)
  • I’m going to refer to this dress as the do-it-all dress of the summer! You could wear it to summer weddings, lunch/dinner with pals, wedding/baby showers, you name it. The price is right with this one, and it even comes in my favorite powder blue!

Summer Essentials: Shoes

Top US fashion blog Never Without Lipstick shares her must-have summer essentials | toe loop sandals, Tory Burch ravello sandals, summer sandals, summer shoes, cajun shrimp opi nail polish

  • The toe loop is all the rage for summer sandals this season. I just scored these flats (shown above) on sale in my favorite powder blue hue. (Here’s a similar version of these for less!)
  • Next, these dainty snakeskin sandals could go with any and every summer look! I’m saving my pennies to splurge on them. (Here’s another similar version for less in a leopard print.)
  • You might’ve seen these espadrilles on this Insta post, and, let me tell you, I’ve been wearing them¬†constantly. They’re comfy enough to wear all day, go with just about anything, and the ankle tie is so flattering. Castaner is a top-notch, Spanish espadrille brand; each pair is at least $50 cheaper at this retailer (get 15% off as a new customer with code NEW15). I’m so in love with my pair that I want another ASAP. This neutral pair is on my wishlist! For sizing, read their guide and measure your foot for accuracy. I went with the 37, and it’s a perfect fit!
  • I wear these platform slip-on espadrilles about 3 times a week to work. Especially on days when I’m heading to pilates mid-day or after work because they’re easy to wear with leggings and pop on & off! They’re available in tons of color options for under $60 here and here.

Summer Essentials: Accessories

  • Like I mentioned earlier, statement earrings are my go-to right now. And there’s no better place to turn for affordable, cute, and lightweight statement earrings than Gresham Jewelry! Use code GJxASHLEY for 15% off your purchase!
    • These bamboo and butterfly earrings have been a major hit around here! They’re seriously so lightweight (as are all of her earrings!) and can truly go with any outfit.
    • How cool are these geo/square earrings?! I love how modern they are while also being a classic earring shape for everyday wear. They come in lots of colors – I have the ‘Grey’ color and am eyeing the pink next…
    • This $28 pair makes such a statement with its simplicity! The white and gold are just so ideal for summertime.
    • Rainbow is big time trending right now, and this pair of earrings can help you add in a subtle ROYGBIV flare to any look.
  • I posted this $25 bag a while ago on ‘Dupe Deals’ on my Insta Stories! It is so darling and fits everything you need in your everyday bag. It also works as a pool or beach bag, and you don’t have to worry about it getting wet or dirty because you can just easily wipe it clean.

Summer Essentials: Swimsuits

After laying out at the pool with friends this weekend, I also realized I could use a few new summer swimsuits for the season! Here are a few that I fell in love with (all under $35-40!):

Cute Maxi Dresses under $100 for Every Occasion 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

While I always love to be both chic and stylish, comfort is my main priority 95% of the time. And there really isn’t anything more ideal for both style and comfort than cute maxi dresses. I ordered this leopard print dress at the beginning of the season and have absolutely adored it! After wearing it for the fifth time or so, I got looking at more maxi dress options that could work for this spring and summer for weekends, work, etc. I’ve put together my findings below by category – I hope you find something comfy and cute!

Cute Maxi Dresses

Casual Maxi Dress Options:

  • This striped, puff-sleeve dress is a DREAM for comfort! Make sure you size down one since it runs a bit oversized.
  • I love the added belt with this dress because it gives it a tailored touch for everyday wear!
  • This off-the-shoulder dress reminds me of a Mara Hoffman version! It has been selling out over and over, so get it while it’s back in stock!
  • There’s nothing a pleated maxi dress can’t fix – especially this one in that powder blue “it color”!
  • If you caught my Friday Finds on Insta Stories last week, you’ll know I’ve been eyeing this amazing floral maxi for weeks! It’s at the top of my list for cute maxi dresses this season.

Work Maxi Dress Options:

  • This striped shirtdress style is made for work and could go with loafers, espadrilles, and even sneakers at a more casual office.
  • Here is the same version of my dress in black! I recommend going true to size or sizing down one size.
  • A lightweight linen option like this one would make for a work outfit worth repeating over and over.
  • If you’re into the prairie style of dress, then this one is a must-have and SO perfect for work and weekends!

Vacation/Poolside Maxi Dress Options:

  • There’s nothing I love more than a leopard slip dress moment! Size up one if you’re a bit fuller in the hips as slip dresses tend to run pretty straight up and down. Or try this more A-line style!
  • This blue and white satin kaftan just screams summer to me! I’d wear this to the pool for sure.
  • Loving the tied sleeves on this dress! So perfect for warm days by the beach on vacay. Same goes for this gorgeous classic black option!
  • This floral, button-up maxi just screams vacation to me.
  • This $18 maxi was made to be a pool cover-up. It also comes in tons of colors/patterns!

How to Add Spring Colors to a Neutral Wardrobe

How to Add Spring Colors to a Neutral Wardrobe 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

I couldn’t be happier that the sun is shining consistently and the temps have been so lovely in Dallas lately! After the cold, gloomy, rainy winter we had, spring fever was at an all-time high for me. Once the sun was out, I immediately wanted to be in florals and bright colors. But if you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you know that I’m a die-hard neutrals girl. Are you, too? I thought it would be fun to share how I think about adding spring colors to a more neutral wardrobe!

Spring Colors featured by top US fashion blog Never Without Lipstick; Image of a woman wearing a light blue blouse, jeans, gucci soho mini and stuart weitzman nudist heel.

Spring Colors featured by top US fashion blog Never Without Lipstick; Image of a woman wearing a light blue blouse, jeans, gucci soho mini and stuart weitzman nudist heel.

Treat pastels like spring neutrals

Pastels are probably the easiest way to add spring colors to your neutral wardrobe. You’re being adventurous by adding in more color, but it’s just not as jarring as bright oranges or reds! The powder blue hue of my shirt in this post is the “it” color of the season; I’m seeing it everywhere! Pastel blues and pinks make gorgeous colorful neutrals for spring, summer, and even cooler seasons, too.

Choose small floral patterns

Generally, I avoid all patterns like the plague *except* for stripes, leopard, and small, dainty florals. Smaller floral patterns create more of a neutral base for an outfit. They’re also not too distracting and transition seamlessly with your other clothes.

Spring Colors featured by top US fashion blog Never Without Lipstick; Image of a woman wearing a light blue blouse, jeans, gucci soho mini and stuart weitzman nudist heel.

Opt for your wardrobe staples in spring colors

If you’re out doing some spring shopping, see if some of your wardrobe go-to’s come in small florals or easy-to-wear light spring colors.

Or select a few statement pieces in springtime hues to dress up or down

I just can’t resist a Victorian neckline, balloon sleeves, or ruffles upon ruffles. So when I found my top in this post, I knew it had to be mine. Before buying it, I thought about how I could wear it with jeans and heels or also with a pair of sneakers. So I recommend shopping for a few statement shirts, skirts, or dresses in spring colors that you know can easily be worn with lots of your spring wardrobe essentials, dressed up or down.

Spring Colors featured by top US fashion blog Never Without Lipstick; Image of a woman wearing a light blue blouse, jeans, gucci soho mini and stuart weitzman nudist heel.

Pair bright spring hues with other neutral pieces

In the same vein as the recommendation above, brighter spring colors can pack more of a punch and be more of a statement. To ease this into a more neutral-based closet, try pairing these brights with your favorite denim or a neutral skirt/base. Bright coral and taupe go together beautifully, for example!

I hope you can take these tips and start adding in sunny and bright spring colors to your wardrobe ASAP! If you’re looking for some more spring outfit inspo, read how to wear my go-to spring work outfit 4 different ways & see what my top 25 spring essentials (under $100!) are here.

Dainty Gold Jewelry under $100 You Can’t Live Without

Dainty Gold Jewelry under $100 You Can’t Live Without 900 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

It always shocks people that I’ve found so much of my everyday dainty gold jewelry on Amazon for under $100 (not sponsored – I wish! Just have to share!). Since I’m not one to withhold my shopping secrets, I wanted to spill all the details on the best dainty gold jewelry pieces I’ve found. These delicate and classic earrings, rings, and necklaces are perfect for wearing nonstop. This is for the glitz and glam lovers who always need solid basics and for those just looking for an everyday touch of sparkle!

How to Find Affordable Dainty Gold Jewelry on Amazon

Before you start, know the difference between gold-plate, gold-filled, and solid gold

For starters, it’s important to be educated about the descriptions of these pieces. You’ll see gold-filled, gold-plated, or solid gold pieces. Each will make a difference in the price and durability of your purchase. Gold-filled and gold-plated are alloys that blend gold with another base metal such as brass or sterling silver. Gold-filled typically lasts longer than gold-plate and doesn’t tarnish as quickly. Brass tends to break out people’s skin, so I always buy gold-filled with/over sterling silver! Real gold is the real deal that definitely won’t tarnish. You’ll see that the price will increase as the quality of gold increases. I purchase 10K and 14K gold pieces for more affordable everyday pieces. 18K and 24K are really nice but involve a much heftier price tag!

Gold Huggie Hoops and Earrings on Amazon

I’d say that one of my most-asked questions is where I got these gold huggie hoops. They’re 14K gold, $33, and I now own three pairs because they’re so good. I’m sharing some more of my favorite small hoop and delicate everyday earrings below…

These $21 teeny tiny gold ball studs are perfect if you have more than one piercing on each lobe. With three piercings per ear, sometimes other earrings can interfere if I want to wear statement earrings up front. I pop these studs into piercing two and three to have something there but to not distract from the earring in piercing one!

I spent well over $50 on a pair of earrings like these before I discovered this $9 pair! These add an edge to your look and something different with the dangling spike!

A lot of the time I like wearing three hoops on each ear. I have been so impressed with the quality of these pave CZ hoops and have worn them for weeks on end. These black pave hoops just came in, and I haven’t taken them out since! A pair of rainbow pave hoops (and these ear threaders!) are on their way to me, so I can’t wait to wear the white, black, and rainbow hoops all together!

Gold Rings on Amazon

SHOP MY LOOK:

Thin Gold Rings | Dress | Bag

My mom will call me “Ringa” (a play on Ringo, ha!) when I’m loading on #alltherings. I don’t know why, but I have been drawn to rings as long as I can remember! I love simple, dainty gold jewelry when it comes to my rings, too. Always go for the classics so that they’re easy to style and go with everything you wear!

Wear this gold wedding band style ring as an everyday, classic statement.

This rope-textured ring is inspired by a David Yurman version and less than half the price. This would be a great stacking ring if you ordered more than one. Or a great texture for mixing and matching!

I also¬†love¬†wearing whisper-thin gold rings all over my fingers like in the photo above. This $18 version from Amazon is to die for. Click on the seller’s name to find the ring in your size! (I bought mine from Etsy.) Buy a few in your ring finger size and then a few bigger to put on your pointer, thumb, or middle finger!

My pinky ring was custom made for me as a gift, but here is a very similar version for under $65!

Gold Layering Necklaces on Amazon

SHOP MY LOOK:

Blazer | Tee | Jeans | Heart Necklace

Who else can’t get enough of the layered coin necklace look?! I think it’s so chic while also being so cool and on trend. To get the layered look, try to space them out by necklace length. I usually go with a 16 inch, 18 inch, and 20 inch when I’m wearing my layered coin necklaces. This way they won’t be laying right on top of each other!

Here is a $23 coin necklace that would be a great way to start or add to your layering! Then consider adding in an oval shaped option in like this.

As I mentioned, I’m not usually one to go for gold-plated brass pieces, but this necklace is said to be made with high-quality brass that does not cause breakouts. This $12 necklace reminds me of the Missoma version and would be a really cool addition to a layered look!

I’m always one to go for a personalized touch. This initial disc necklace is a must-buy for $8 or this one for $15! I’ve found that shopping for children’s gold jewelry can lead to some major price cuts and steals!

This rosary-style necklace is so cool and makes for a simple statement all on its own!

It’s also always a classic and easy move to just wear a simple, elegant gold chain. I love the open link look of this one. Or this ball chain style could add some texture!

You can never go wrong with something simple with just one pendant like this one!

Here is a dupe of the Tiffany’s Elsa Perretti heart necklace for $75! This would make an amazing Mother’s Day gift.

This gold bar necklace would be amazing on its own or a great option for engraving to personalize it!

Last but not least, I have been loving Amy (Fashion Jackson)’s and Ashley (The Teacher Diva)’s delicate ball chain bracelets. I was thrilled when I found this $10 version on Amazon! I ordered two to stack them.

I hope these affordable, dainty gold jewelry finds add a luxe touch to your everyday look. I always link my jewelry and accessories here or on my LIKEtoKNOW.it profile so that y’all can stay updated!

P.S. You may not know that I’m a bit of a junkie when it comes to discovering deals on Amazon! Don’t miss my post on the best designer dupes you can find on Amazon. Think amazing dupes for the Goyard tote, Valentino shoes, and more!

Spring Button Downs

What I love about button downs is that they’re a classic for work but also for every other situation during the spring. (I’ll throw mine on over a swimsuit as a coverup or with jean shorts on warmer days!)

Long-Sleeve Spring Blouses

Short-Sleeve Spring Blouses

My spring work uniform consists of some version of this top, Madewell jeans, and then espadrilles or sandals. Short-sleeve blouses are one of the best routes to take when it comes to spring blouses for work! So easy, you can outfit repeat with them, too by just changing up your jewelry and shoes.

Sleeveless Spring Blouses

While in some offices it might not be allowed to show some shoulder, sleeveless blouses are a good layer to have on as the temps heat up. You can keep cool if you don’t have to cover up and stay cooler with a sleeveless blouse under a blazer or jacket in a more formal office setting. I’m linking some classic, sleeveless options below!

Spring Wrap Tops

A classically elegant option that you could easily take to dinner or drinks after work!

Spring Camisoles

Camis are a great layering piece when it comes to spring blouses for work. Wear one under a blazer, jean jacket, or trench coat. You can get creative with a scalloped detail or polka dot print!

Wear this Sherpa Denim Jacket Every Weekend

Wear this Sherpa Denim Jacket Every Weekend 800 1200 neverwithoutlipstick

Happy almost-Friday, lovely ladies! I took a look at this weekend’s forecast and it’s going to be a chilly one for sure. That’s why this cozy, casual sherpa denim jacket outfit would be the perfect option for any weekend plans day or night. It’s so easy to throw on, and you won’t be sacrificing any style for warmth. I’m also willing to bet that you might have some of these staples already in your closet. A striped turtleneck tee? Ripped skinny jeans? I think yes!

The real superstar of the show here is this¬†sherpa¬†denim jacket though. And it might not be in your closet just yet, but it definitely should ūüėČ I now consider it one of my winter staples when it comes to casual layering. During the spring and fall, I’m always throwing on an oversized jean jacket with dresses or over tees and black jeans. This sherpa version is now my winter replacement! And it’s much easier to style this jacket for a lot of different occasions than you might think. Head over to this board on my Pinterest for more outfit¬†inspo! I’m particularly loving a sherpa denim jacket outfit that includes a leather skirt or trousers and pointy toe pumps.

If you have a sherpa jean jacket, what’s your favorite way to wear it? Let me know over on Instagram and make sure to enter the giveaway on this post (I’m picking the winner on Sunday!).

Tips on Buying & Wearing Spanx Faux Leather Leggings:

  • I went with a medium in these just so that I knew I wouldn’t have to do that struggle dance you do to get too-tight leggings on if I’d gone with the small ūüėČ The fit is very true to size!
  • The length was a bit long in my opinion (I’m 5’7 for reference) and I plan on wearing these leggings with a bunch of ankle height booties. I took mine to the tailor and hemmed them to hit right at my ankle bone!
  • This might be TMI but here we go…I’d definitely make sure to wear seamless undies with these leggings! Anything else will show lines – ah, no!
