A Beach Tassel Adventure

Tassel’s are definitely the new fashion trend on scene for spring! I couldn’t wait to get this dress from Original Piece Boutique, as soon as I saw it. I tried it on and I love the one shoulder tassel design and adjustable strap. The tassels are a bold neon color that I love and it gives it a trendy twist.

I wore this to an occasion I had at the beach and it was so comfortable to walk along the ocean in. The dress is a cream color for spring and will offset a nice tan… when I have time I’m tanning! 😉
I paired it also with a new choker necklace from Ettika Jewelry and it also has that bold neon color mix in the choker design. It has a chain clasp so you can adjust where on your neck you wear it! I also paired it with the matching shoes I found from Target for only $24 that also had tassels!

Little Black Maxi

As you guys know I love fashion and dresses! I came across this solid black maxi dress at Original Piece Boutique in Jacksonville, Florida. As soon as I saw it I fell in love! I love the neckline and the side slit! It’s perfect for date nights or for a night out with the girls!

I decided to try it on and it fits amazing! I love the accented top because I can do a simple necklace and a pair of my favorite heels or flats to dress this look up or down!
This maxi is a new favorite… let’s be honest can you ever have too many little black dresses? I took a selfie in the dress so you guys could see what it looks like on!

Dutch Girl Braid

So a fun fact is I love braids. I love any kind of braid. I search Pinterest and I am always looking for fun braids to try! I know how to French braid my own hair and to fishtail my own hair, but I don’t know how to Dutch braid… yet.

My friend Dutch braided my hair and I have to say I love the Dutch braid style. It’s amazing and I love how it looks with my balayage hair color too! It’s the perfect spring/summer braid and it’s perfect for when I go out or go to work or am on location at a video or photoshoot.
This hairstyle is my new favorite look.
Comment below your favorite braid!

Maxi Moments

So this maxi dress had just arrived at Original Piece Boutique when I was coming in-store to shop for looks for our upcoming photoshoot I was planning for Original Piece Magazine.
As soon as I saw this maxi I knew I HAD to try it on!. It comes in two colors and I of course selfied in both of them!

I love the tribal design on this maxi and I love the mix of colors in both of them! I couldn’t decide on a color I love them both. I took a selfie in each color and I need your help on which color I should get! COMMENT below and let me know which color you love best on me.
I love the white because of the pop of neon colors, but the navy is awesome too with it’s darker color tones.
This is going to be my new favorite fashion look! COMMENT BELOW which COLOR! See more on my insta page: HeyitsCarlyRae

Ballet BABY

So a lot of you all of been writing in or snapping me asking me what I use on my eyes. Well, here’s a secret tip: I have been using the new Stila eyeshadow from Ulta. I saw it on display and I love anything that glitters or shimmers so I decided to give it a try.

I used it over a white base shadow and it went on smoothly and dried really fast, which I loved. It gave me a really nice shimmer and I got so many compliments on my makeup today when I wore this shadow. I was able to wear it all day without it moving or looking like it was ‘melting’ off.
I definitely love this new Stila product. I love the shimmer and I love the fact is act
ually dries and fast! When I do my makeup in the morning I usually only have 5-10 minutes and this is definitely a product ti”m going to keep using!
Have YOU tried this product? COMMENT below your favorite shimmer shadow you use!

I’m a Sweet Peach Girl

So as most of you guys know I love makeup. I’ve read so many reviews on the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and have wanted it for so long! Every time I go to purchase it it’s sold out in-store. But the other day when I walked into Ulta I was in luck because they just got in their shipment of it and were fully stocked! I grabbed one and couldn’t wait to go home and try it.

Overall I absolutely LOVE this product. At first I thought it might hurt my eyes because it is scents and definitely smells like peaches which I love. It sounds weird but it smells amazing even when you wear the product! But the good news is the product doesn’t bother me. I can wear it all day and it’s awesome, it doesn’t come off when you wear it or anything.

Today I’m wearing a mix of White Peach, Cobbler, and Caramelized. I mixed the Cobbler and Caramelized colors together to achieve a mix of hues. I applied that on the top of my lid and then to accent underneath my eyebrows I use the Nectar and White Peach.
The colors are so easy to apply and is my new ‘go-to’ palette. I’m replacing my Naked Palette with this one for now! Underneath my eye I used Tempting to give an accent color.

What colors are your favorite in this palette?! I can’t wait to try a new peach smokey look next time I use it tomorrow. Above I posted a close-up of the palette so if you don’t have yet or aren’t familiar you can see what a close-up look of the palette actually looks like.
I love the fact that it has a mix of colors so the hues can look good on any skin tone which I think is a huge key! COMMENT BELOW if you love the SWEET Peach Palette!
