The Atelier

atelier

If I had to describe my style in a word it would most have to be 'feminine'. I gravitate primarily towards pinks and whites and love to accessorize with delicate jewelry...I am 100% a girly girl if you couldn't tell from my posts! So when it comes to decor or stationary it's no different...give me a striped, pink, or printed notebook and I'll most likely be buying it! That's why I've been loving basically everything on The Atelier !

I did a "Behind the Blog" post a few months ago and asked Melissa, the designer and founder or The Atelier, a few question about her style and how she started her business and I'm sharing it with you again today! They recently launched their 'Summer in the City' line of jewelry, prints, and stationary and to say I'm obsessed would be an understatement! The line encompasses all things feminine, classic, and chic! I mean that palm leaf print notebook is to die for...and that tote? it basically describes me!! With college coming up (3 weeks until I move in!) I've been on the hunt for some dorm decor and these prints are perfect for the mini gallery wall I was thinking of doing!
I think it's safe to say that a few of these products will be making another appearance on the blog!

Beauty Inspiration





If there's one beauty trend that has been taking over the blogs, runways, and photoshoots it would have to be the 'no-makeup' makeup look and to be honest...I think it has really been revolutionizing the makeup industry! 

When it comes to beauty routines, I always keep things pretty simple! And while my intentions are to get this 'barely there'  look, it never seems to turn out exactly how I want it! But practice makes perfect right? I source my beauty inspiration from places like Pinterest and Tumblr and they never fail to please. The images above have been my motivation this week to play around with my look, all while keeping it simple and fresh. 

What are your favorite summer beauty products? These are a few of mine!

Pink Peplum





Top/ Shorts(similar)/ Sandals/ Bag(unavailable)/ Watch

Good Morning everyone! Today I am sharing a look with one of my favorite white tops of the summer! I don't go into Gap often, but when I do I am pleasantly surprised by what they have! This top was on sale so I snagged it up and ended up loving the fit! Since it's white you can wear this with basically anything...I've been wearing it with shorts but I can't wait to pair this with jeans and a cute pair of flats! My love of pink is pretty obvious in this outfit...but I'm not going to pass up a chance to wear these sandals!

PS. Is there anything you want to see on the blog? Let me know in the comments below!

Dressing Up a Tee




Top/ Skirt (similar) / Sandals/ Bag (similar) 
I'll take any excuse to get dressed up..and by dressed up I mean changing out of my tank top and Nike shorts! Does anyone else have this problem in the summertime? A t-shirt is the easiest thing to dress up because it's as simple as changing from a pair of shorts to a skirt! This black tee has recently become a staple in my closet because it's easy, comfy, and casual..but I paired it with one of my favorite skirts for a dressier vibe! Even though its summer I haven't completely shied away from my love of black and white..and my sandals are no exception! I never thought I would go for these, the part around the toe scared me, but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and comfortable they are! I've been slipping them on literally every day!

My tee is from a brand that I'm new to called Triple Thread and I'll be sharing another outfit post soon with more of their clothing! They have clothing for just about any style! They're introducing their new VIP membership - Triple Thread Society! As a member you'll have access to sales, product previews, invites to events, and more! Just visit their site to join!

Instagram Lately

Finally got to try out a brunch spot that I've been wanting to try yesterday! I got the Lemon Blueberry Ricotta pancakes....soooo good!

My best friend knows me too well! Of course for my birthday she had to give the cutest stationary! 

I scooped up these gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff sandals from work on super sale and I just love them!

P.S. I made a snapchat...add me at @belleadore

A Few Random Thoughts



So today's post is a little all over the place, but just bear with me...I'll  have some outfit pics as soon as I can! Anyway, today I'm just sharing a few things that I found and have been loving!

- I feel like everyday lately has been a crazy hair day and I blame it on the weather (85% humidity?!). I'm trying out a few of these styles to tame my hair in this heat!

- Move in day is in almost 1 month! How crazy is that?! I'm starting to get my dorm stuff together and have been using this list to make sure I don't forget anything! (more college posts coming soon)

- Do any of you change your phone/computer backgrounds too often..like every week? Because I do... I'm loving these ones for July because they're so fun and bright!

- My newest obsession is Mad Men! I started watching it on Netflix and I'm hooked!! Kieran Shipka is such a style icon because 1) She's my age and 2) She has the coolest vintage style

- If you haven't already seen this video please go watch it now! As an avid watcher of beauty videos/vloggers myself, it was so sad reading all the hurtful comments that people say over the Internet. I think this is a video that all of us should see.

- This mask is a godsend! Even though it feels so weird to put it on your face...it leaves it feeling so clean and refreshed! I'll be trying out this one soon too!

- I recently joined snapchat! follow me @belleadore for some inside snaps into my life!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed their nice, long holiday weekend! Mine was spent with my family and friends relaxing and eating(too much)! How did you spend yours?

Anyway, I've rounded up a few of the prettiest things that I've had my eyes on for this summer! I've steered away from my usual white and navy and have been eyeing tons of pretty pinks and periwinkles! I mean how cute is this sunnies pouch? I love it!

On a different note, I've been talking to new blogging friend...shoutout to Caroline!..about how it's easy to get uninspired and distracted from blogging! I've definitely fallen victim to that but I'm trying to get back to it. But, I want to hear from you guys about what you want to see on here! Tweet me - @belleadoreblog or leave a comment below!
