It's was 80 degrees and pretty much a never ending wind gust here in Fayetteville today. When Austin and I went to go shoot this outfit, my hair was curled in a half up bun, but it was so crazy windy that it all ended up in this crazy bun! His idea actually :) Then of course we ended the evening with some Mexican food, our favorite if we have to admit.
The sunsets have been my favorite lately, such light and rich pinks! I came across this quote one time that I always think of when I'm overcome by a sunset's beauty.
"If you can still feel romanced by a sunset, then you must be closer to your maker than you thought." ~ Beth Moore
The transition from Winter to Spring is always fun for me. I am always so eager to ditch the winter clothes and layers for dress and jumpers and shorts that I probably dive in too early. I have to make myself start with springy patterns and colors before I take off the layers because I'm such a cold body. One way I start the transition is by keeping the booties and light jackets but pairing them with a lighter weight dress or skirt. This romper is so fun with the cross cross back but is more for summer so I paired it with this BCBG overlay to keep covered up (no thanks to the wind). I love all of BCBG's pieces because I can always find something specific to my feminine style!
Thank goodness its finally Friday! Have a wonderful weekend! XO

I'm beyond picky about eyeliners! Sorry not sorry, partially because I have sensitive skin and eyes so if they aren't good quality I'll wake up with puffy eye lids and have to wear my glasses... not my best look in the morning.
Influenster teamed up with Marc Jacobs Beauty and gifted me two colors to test out! I was nervous that I would be sent crazy colors (because I'm not too confident in wearing bright colors on my eyes with makeup) but I received a beautiful dark blue called Overnight and the perfect shade of brown called Earthquake.
They went on soooo smooth and easy! I also don't have the most steady hand with eyeliner, so that is a huge plus for me haha.
They also sent a cute little book with different ways to style the Highliner that I will be sure to test out and get out of my comfort zone. Playing eyeliner colors is a good way to budge yourself try new things with makeup, simple yet can change your whole look! They come in 25 colors!! A color for anyone :) You can find these at Marc Jacobs, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus! Shop them below for my favorite colors and sets!

Thanks Influenster! XXX Haley
We couldn't stop laughing because when we put the straws in, the fizz wouldn't stop overflowing! So weird!
Here is the other half from our shoot the other day with Ashton; all the reds! I loved getting professional pictures with Austin because half the time it's just one or the other of us in the picture. We made a promise to start taking more together and I can't wait to start sharing them with you all! On Valentine's Day it rained all day long. The prefect day to just stay in and be cozy, even though that didn't happen. Austin and I had a great afternoon and evening just out and about, an early movie, a quick BBQ dinner, and ended the day at the gym. Just about a perfect day for us :)
I love me some matching. We do it all the time on accident and will show up somewhere wearing basically the same tee or same exact color. This was intentional but of course so fun and cute! I wear this flannel tunic all the time because it has a little more style than the average flannel button-up. It's easy to dress up or down depending on what I am doing.
It is HARD for me to find the right size maxi dress! Either too long, too short, too wide... this one is perfect when I add the belt to it and makes me look so much taller and accentuates my waist (or else I look swallowed). I love how the slit is up the middle instead of the side because then it's way easier to walk. Shop our looks below!
Ready for the weekend! XO
I'm a sucker for some good old fashion bubble gum.
The infamous cat dress. It seems like I have had it forever but it just never gets old, pockets and all :)
I love love, I love all things Valentines, I love sharing a different type of love with all of the people in my life! My love is rooted deep for this day probably because it has been one of my Mom's favorite holidays. So, naturally, like mother like daughter right? It's sweet and girly what more could I want!? Who else remembers when we used to decorate shoe boxes in elementary school and have notes for everyone and have a full day of sweets? The BEST! I hope someday my kids will still be doing that :)
On Sunday, I had a cute Valentine's themed shoot with a sweet friend and we probably had too much fun with it! Ashton has such a creative mind and the ideas were flowing all afternoon! Check out her blog and website here! Austin and I also took some couple photos that will be spread out in today's post and the next. We had so many pictures that I thought I should split them up haha! Thank goodness pink is such a hit right now (not gonna lie I have been waiting my whole life for this ;) I could wear it every day and never get sick of it!
I love this see through midi skirt with a touch of metallic, great for church, date night, work... so much. I paired it with my favorite suede d'orsay heels and this soft pink crop top. Oh, and don't forget my go-to Kate Spade clutch! That baby is perfect for holding my essentials: phone, lipstick, and some cards or cash. All you really need right?
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day filled with sweets and flowers, your best girls or your best guy, or family and friends! Thanks for all of the love!! Give those kisses, say your appreciation, or just be there for a hug at the end of the day. But never forget to share your love everyday, not just one day a year.
A few of my favorite things!
You might find me wearing this bralette too often ;) or not because it's underwear (but SO CUTE when showing from low cut tops!). I stumbled across LIVELY a little while ago and cannot get over how stinkin' cute their brand is! I partnered with LIVELY the second I fell in love and they were kind enough to send me their Color block Mesh Trim Bralette and a fun baseball hat! I could wear this bra all day every day because of the comfort and support. Their bras, bodysuits, underwear, even hats are classy, comfy, and most of all cute. Shop their collection with my discount code AMB-HALEYS and get $10 OFF (expires 3/31)!! Yay!
Not only are their products great, but what is behind their brand is much more. LIVELY is creating products for women that are sweet and sexy yet totally wearable which they call Leisurée. They are all about women supporting women! February 3rd was Heart You Girls Day. We have teamed up to get girls excited about sharing some extra love with the special girls in your life. Share the love all month with #LIVELYbabe and make time for your girls by going out for a coffee catch up or girls night in. It's the month of love so why not love a little extra!
Live life comfortably and beautifully in LIVELY!
