The 5 Types Of Underwear Every Woman Should Own

Thank you to Kohl's for sponsoring this post. I was paid for this post and received the included panties as compensation. As always, all opinions are my own.

Getting a little personal today, and talking...panties! I know, it's a little out of the norm for me, but an important topic, nonetheless. A great outfit always starts with good undergarments, and it's important to have a good base layer to make you feel comfortable throughout the day. It sounds silly, but the wrong pair of panties can really mess up your whole day. (Nobody wants an ill-fitting thong, or saggy granny-panties to tote around all day!) Having a good fitting pair of panties is essential, but it's equally important to have a well rounded set of undies, so that you are properly prepared for all types of looks. Let's talk about the 5 types of underwear every woman should own.
The G-String: Itty bitty in size, the G-String is no more than a few inches of fabric. It's the type of panty that you barely know is there, because it's so small. Some women don't like how small this thong is, but I keep several pairs on board. They are perfect for tight dresses, because they don't leave much (if any) of a panty line.

The Thong: With quite a bit more fabric (and as much coverage as a panty that tucks inside your bum can give you) the thong is a favorite among many. Some refer to this style as a T-Back, because of the T shape in the back. I have more of this style than I can mention. If you are looking for a thong style that doesn't dig into your hips, consider this style as it rests nicely on your hipline.

The Brazilian Thong: This thong gives more of a "cheeky" bottom look. Like the thong, it's similar in size, and meant to be worn with thicker fabrics like denim. 

The Boyshort: The boyshort covers your whole under-area, and continues onto the top of your thighs, giving the ultimate covers. I have a ton of this style, because I love wearing them with dresses. 

The Granny Panty: We all know this one! This panty gives full coverage over your booty, without covering your thighs. I have a couple of these styles, but I usually only wear them to bed, because I am not about that panty line life! 

I purchased these panties at Kohl's and can't get over how cute they are! If you didn't know, Kohl's panty section is on point! They have the cutest styles, ranging from cotton/everyday where to sexy lingerie. And, in keeping with Kohl's style, they in all price ranges.

By the way, Kohl's is having their semi-annual event where you can snag intimates for $10 off of your $40 purchase. The sale starts 8/5-8/17. Just use promo code INTIMATES10 at checkout, to start those savings!

Blame it on my Cali roots, but I have a thing for the sun. I love it. I'm rarely "too" hot, and am happiest when it's above 80 degrees. I'd rather be laying out by the pool than playing sports, and admittedly rarely remember to put sunscreen on. I know, I know. That's uber taboo, in a day and age where everyone is realizing how important it is to properly care for your skin and the protection of it. 

I was recently introduced to SUMMERSKIN, which makes stylish sun protective clothing for women, to protect their skin from the sun. I've always struggled with chemical laden sunscreen, so this is an exciting approach to sun protection, for me. The clothing blocks up to 80% of UV rays!

I styled this tank and scarf with jeans and sneakers for a city style look, but I could see this working so well for hiking or camping, alike. (Clothes with multi-function...win-win.) Some of these pieces are from their new fall line, which isn't on the site yet, but you can order them pre-sale through the site. Also, EPWL readers get 20% off their purchase of ANY item with the code Leah20.

Fall Trends You Can Wear Now

Thank you to Lyst for sponsoring this post.

It's hard to believe, but it's already time to start planning our fall wardrobes. I'm in no way ready for the sunshine to go away, but I can't help but get excited about fall - especially with so many amazing fashion trends on the horizon. Blush, pumpkin spice and navy are all super hot colors for Fall, and even though it's not quite time to bust out the sweaters and boots, there are a few fall trends you can start wearing now. Today, I've teamed up with Lyst to share those with you.
1. Frayed Denim - The overly fringed cuff line has 1996 fall 2016 written all over it. The raw, undone look has been around for the past few years, but this exaggerated frayed hemline is new to the scene. I personally think the fringed cuff works best on cropped jean - making for a seamless transition from summer to fall. I'm loving this pair of frayed denim by 3 x 1.

2. Statement Choker - Another nod to the '90's, the choker has made a comeback in a big way. I love understated/simple chokers, but lately I've been gravitating toward statement chokers, and I've currently got my eye on this Isabel Marant choker.

3. Velvet - This fabric pretty much ruled the runways for fall 2016, so you can definitely expect to see this furry material popping up everywhere in the months to come. I'm currently crushing on these velvet dresses.

4. Leather - I mean, is it really ever out of style? No one really wants to even think about leather during the summer, but this blush leather mini skirt can definitely be worn now.

5. Off-the-shoulder anything: Tanks, dresses, sweaters, this early 2000's trend is making a big comeback, this fall.

6. Bohemian - Boho babes are no longer left behind in the summer. This trend continues well into the winter months, by pairing with booties and felt hats. I'm loving this long sleeved bohemian dress - it's only $30!!

You can be sure to see these trends popping up everywhere, this fall season, from high-end to budget friendly designers. I found all of these pieces at Lyst, which is a great example of high meets low, as you can shop everything from their site. When you're looking for a specific piece, I highly recommend checking Lyst out, and letting them do the footwork for you, versus spending hours searching across multiple platforms. The best part about Lyst, is that the more you use it, it begins to learn your shopping patterns and interests, and begins to curate your feed accordingly. You can even set up search to alert you when sales on your favorite items occur. (Something I particularly love getting notified on.)

Hope you all have the best weekend! Brandon and I are off to a wedding tomorrow near Denver, so we are going to stay up there and make a date night out of it. Tis the season for love!


Eyelet Top

Thanks to The Casery for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own.

I've been loving eyelet tops lately. They are so pretty and dainty and come is all types of styles. Today, I styled this eyelet top from Chicwish with marble accessories from Olive + Piper. I'm crazy about the tassel chain earrings, and the marble stoned necklace adds a super chic element, making it perfect for casual or dressier looks. 
 


Speaking of marble, did you see this marble case from The Casery? It's a good thing when your accessories can seamlessly match each other! I love how chic it is, and it's also such great quality. I must admit, it's the flamingo case (on sale for $20!) that I've had in rotation though. I mean, it's really no surprise right?

Blogger Nation: Kendra Scott

Last week I got an up close and personal look at the Kendra Scott Fall Collection, as I hosted a shopping party at their new Cherry Creek location, along with some of my favorite Denver Bloggers. I was so excited, because the fall line screams Colorado! I styled this choker and these bangles for the event, and I'm completely obsessed with them. I'm all about mixed metals this season, and the new KS line gets that. It's like the curated the collection for me. 


One of my favorite trends that is making a comeback, is the choker trend - and KS nailed it in their fall line. I picked up this one (pictured here) and am obsessed with the rose gold and gray granite stone. Another uber Colorado element of the new line, is the use of arrowheads. The collection is full of them, like this ring and pendant necklace. Although I'm in no way ready for summer to be over, I can honestly say that the fall Kendra Scott collection is giving me all the fall feels.

Stay tuned as I'm discussing more fall trends this week on the blog. Speaking of fall, did you see my post about the #nsale and how you can gain early access WITHOUT having to have the credit card? You don't want to miss it!

The BEST Of The #NSale + How You Can Gain Early Access

Ok, guys...I caved. After seeing everyone already shopping the Nordstrom sale (and eyeing all their goodies!) I had to get my hands on the goods. Being that I don't love credit cards though, I thought my hands were tied. Luckily, I discovered there's another way! Nordstrom offers a debit card that is linked directly to your bank account, so you don't have to open credit, and can still gain early access to the best sale of the year! Holla! You can apply here and get instant access, too.

 I'm sure you're wondering what all the hype is about, though. I mean, a sales a sale, right? WRONG! The reason the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is so great, is because it's the only sale that allows you to shop the NEXT season's items, allowing you to stock up on fall favorites beforehand, so you can enjoy them all season long.

All we have is a Nordstrom Rack in our Colorado Springs, so I have to take advantage of all the goodness of Nordstrom online. I snagged this sweater in a few colors (it comes in 7!), as well as these boots and these jeans. Below are some of the other items I'd buy, if I had an endless amount of money.

Floral Bomber

If you've seen this floral bomber on my IG feed a few times, it's for good reason - I can't stop wearing it! It's so edgy and cool, I can't even handle it. If you're in the market for a summer jacket, this crop jacket is a great summer piece. It works well for cool nights, and cold restaurants, alike. I'm especially crazy over the floral embroidery. It's another lovely piece from Larmoni (like this silk sheer dress).

 I recently jumped on the jean skirt trend, and I have to say I like it. This one is only $16, too.
