Sharing is caring!

If you haven’t seen any of my previous posts like this before, The Like List is where I share my favorites for each month.

Most of this month’s list can be summed up in this one outfit.

J Crew Eyelet Top

The thing I especially love about this top, besides how comfortable it is, is how versatile it is. I’ve worn this shirt for both work and on the weekends, and I think it works great either way. The gray color works with a lot of bottoms, but this top comes in several colors. I may be considering getting another one…

White Jeans

I’ve talked about these jeans before and I’m just not over them. I know white pants are nothing new, but this is the first time I’ve worn them. They feel a little more put together than your average jeans, while still being casual if that’s the look you’re going for.

Straw bags 

Straw bags have been everywhere and they are just so cute. I’m the type that if I can find something that’s trendy in a slightly different style, that’s what I’m going for. This LC Lauren Conrad bag fit the bill with the colorful elements. I also have this bag on its way to me, and the pom poms and dots were just too cute to pass up.

Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are definitely on trend and I’m not complaining. I actually accidentally bought these pearl clips and I’m glad I did. You might be wondering, “how does one accidentally buy something?”. Well I was on a spending ban at the beginning of the month and ended up perusing pearl hair clips on the amazon app. Somehow I accidentally hit “buy now” versus “add to cart” and it wasn’t until I saw the confirmation email the next day that I even realized I had made the purchase. At least it was only 7 dollars (actually right now, they’re only 4.99!).

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Cherry Blossom

If you saw my latest makeup post, then you’ve seen this lip color on. It’s been my most worn lip product this month, which is saying a lot because I like to switch things up pretty often. For a liquid lipstick, I find this to be pretty smooth and easy to apply. I also love this shade, but if bright pinks aren’t your thing there are tons of colors to choose from. The only downside is it can be a little drying. I always prep my lips with a little bit of lip balm no matter what lip product I’m wearing, so this does help. 



If you follow me on instagram then you probably already know I loved the live-action Aladdin. I went into the movie a bit unsure. I loved Aladdin as a kid, and so far the Disney live-actions have pretty much all disappointed me. This one was so well done though! From the acting to the songs to the costumes, it was exactly what a live-action retelling should be. In addition, I think the new parts that were added really enhanced the story, whereas with other live-action remakes *cough* Beauty and the Beast *cough* the new scenes took me out of the story. If you haven’t seen it yet, definitely do. Its well worth it and really fun!

    I love the look! It’s so bright and “cool” perfect for summertime!

    I love white jeans, shorts, and summery dresses. But I have 2 toddler boys and anything white I try and wear gets wrecked in 2.438 seconds. Ugh! I may just wear it anyway and rock the “I’m a mom with 2 messy kids and I’ve got the stained up clothes to prove it” look lolol!

    i think white pants will always surprise people especially for women who look young enough to have their period lol. so you really didn’t like any of the disney live-action before Aladdin? I have been meaning to dedicate a day to watching them… but i hope it doesn’t ruin the classics for me.

      The other live-action movies weren’t bad, I just don’t think they were as good as I expected them to be. But Aladdin definitely beat my expectations.
