The Truth About The Topknot

I promise I have more than one hairstyle, even though topknot is all you've been seeing lately around these parts. Truth is, topknot is my go-to-do when I don't have time to wash do my hair. And, if you've been following my story on snapchat (leah_behr) you know I'm full swing in the midst of a move/demo, so doing my hair is pretty much that last thing I have time for.


In this busy season it's safe to say that 9 times out of 10 you'll catch me in some variation of jeans and a tee (and trusty topknot #obvi) but when I'm feeling particularly down, I always find that dressing up does wonders to boost my spirit - especially if it involves a bold a-line midi.

It's true what they say, "when you look good, you feel good." (by the way, who are "they"?! "They" always know what to say! I digress..) Truth be told though, when I'm busy I can lose a little of my spirit and become kind of a crab-ass. I've found that there is nothing better to whip myself back into shape than playful, girly garb.

Happy Friday my friends. Any plans for the weekend? Hug yourself for me. xx

Blogger Nation: Spring Trends with Tobi



 Love Zahra / Upbeat Soles / Eat Pray Wear Love

Matching separates are totally having a moment right now, and I couldn't be happier. To be honest, I haven't been working out much lately, so I wasn't sure that this trend would suit me. After giving it a try, I'm all in!  

I just adore this floral print and how the high waist skirt hides my love handles. #justsayin 



It's week 5 in the Blogger Nation series, and I'm so thankful to all of you that have been following along! Special thanks to Tobi for providing all of our looks today! Sorry things have been quiet around the blog lately, but life has been CRAZY! I'm juggling a million things right now, and something's gotta give. Just know I appreciate all of your sweet comments and am doing my best to keep up. I love you all dearly and thanks so much for bearing with me!

Festival Inspired Attire With Shopbop

Festival season is here, which always seems to bring out the boho babe in all of us. There's just something about a music festival that begs for Woodstock inspired attire. Contrary to popular opinion though, you don't have to wear a floral headband or crochet bikini top. Good thing too, because really when would you ever wear those pieces again?! When it comes to festival inspired attire, stick to pieces that you can work into your post-coachella wardrobe, such as cute ankle bootiespaisley rompers, fringe bags, gold accessories and classic aviators.

By the way, I'm super excited to announce a fun partnership I just started with Shopbop! And just in time for their fabulous friends and family event! If you haven't heard, you can take 25% off your entire purchase (some brands excluded) with code SPRING25 until tomorrow. Time to stock up on your favorite designer pieces for a fraction of the cost.

Happy shopping!

Blogger Nation: Maude

Sometimes a trend rolls around that fades out as quickly as it came, and we're left with a closet full of the flavors of last season. I learned a long time ago that fashion fads are not for me. Instead, I look for classic pieces that stand the test of time. Still, it never hurts when your tried and true pieces are on trend, which is why I'm thrilled to highlight one of my favorite on-trend and classic prints: stripes. 

The Blogger Nation babes and I went rogue today and are highlighting different trends. I went with stripes, because it's a print that stands the test of time. I can't tell you how many striped pieces I have in my closet that I have worn season over season.

glo Minerals Matte Lip Crayons

Confession: I'm addicted to bold lips, and I blame it all on GLO Minerals


Let me explain.

I've never been one to fuss about my makeup, and have turned to lip balm and glosses as a part of my everyday makeup routine. That was until I discovered glo Minerals and their amazing line of matte lip crayons and sticks

It's true. They created a lipstick diva.

Wearing from top to bottom clockwise bombshell, monogram, sorbet, port.

One of the main reasons I've never been crazy about lipsticks and crayons, is because I've always found myself having to re-apply multiple times throughout the day, and worst of all, lipsticks tend to cake on and leave your lips looking dry unless you exfoliate, and really who has time for all of that?

glo minerals is different though. No really, I swear. Their suede matte collection features super saturated colors (12 shades in two new formulas!) that last all day and offer velvety smooth finishes, so they never leave your lips looking cakey and dry. We all know that 2 o'clock feeling, when you have to reapply your lips because they look like alligator skin. Ya, that doesn't happen with glo. 

One of my favorite features about their lip crayons, is the built in pencil sharpener and pencil sharpener cleaner! I mean, not having to dig around my makeup bag to find a sharpener that I use once in a blue moon, is a big win for me! I'm also crazy about their suede matte sticks, because they give more of a glossy finish and last all day. Whatever you're into, both formulas provide conditioning ingredients (which is why they don't cake!) including Vitamin C, E, Mango Seed Oil and Shea Butter. Did I mention they come in 12 shades? I honestly can't even decide which one is my favorite!

Head over to gloprofessional.com or call 1-800-232-0398 to find a local retailer in your area. Be sure to use code EATPRAYWEARLOVE15 at checkout to get 15% off your purchase!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

It's officially the 1st of April and you know what they say, "April showers bring May flowers." With that old saying in mind, I rounded up a few old looks that I would most likely wear on any given rainy day.


Suffice to say I'm all about comfort when inclement weather rolls around, and you can most likely catch me in flats, a look jacket or sweater, and some type of hat. Do you have any outfit go-to's on rainy days?

Blogger Nation: Springs Trends - Athletic Inspired

It's week 3 of our Blogger Nation series, and if you have no idea what I'm talking about, you can catch yourself up here and here. Any-who, this week we're back with Sage Threads & Co.

 

It's no secret that athletic inspired attire is all the rage this Spring, so I decided to sport (pun intended) this court side dress from Sage

I just love how the perforated edging pairs so perfectly with my favorite perforated slips-ons! Spring is such a season of new beginnings, and since getting ready in the Fall and Winter months can seem like such a production sometimes (am I right?!), I tend toward pieces that are easy to throw on, and this dress achieves just that.

Be sure to stop by and say hello to the rest of the Blogger Nation crew, and if follow along on IG with the hashtag #FBloggerNation
