Top 5 Lip Colors for Spring

*This post contains affiliate links.*

Spring in the Midwest is probably the absolute worst. I haven't been able to completely pack up my sweaters, but I have been dying to break out all of my spring and summer hues. Lipstick is one of my favorite ways to add a pop of color to any outfit and really just brighten up your whole look!

Today I'm sharing my Top 5 Lip Colors for Spring and they're all available at your local drugstore for less than $10!

You probably saw that hot pink hue in my recent post for L'Oreal, and I've been playing around with the Fairest Nude shade for a while now, too. I'm usually a "my-lips-but-better" kind of lipstick girl, so of course I had to add in a mauve-y shade like Lust for Blush. I'm also loving the e.l.f. cosmetics moisturizing line of lipsticks, especially their removable balms at the bottom!

This orange-y nude shade is going to be such a fun take on a classic neutral. Do you have any favorite shades or go-to hues for the spring and summer months?

How to Wear a Lularoe Carly Dress: 2 Ways! + GIVEAWAY!

*This post has been sponsored by Lularoe Joni Bond but all opinions are my own as always! This post also contains affiliate links: thank you for supporting Like Honey!*

Who else is obsessed with the Lularoe trend?! I am slowly racking up a collection and I'm totally okay with it! This olive green Carly dress is perfect for spring and fall alike, but I was so intimidated by the flowiness of it. I'm so glad my bestie Joni sent one my way for me to try out because I am totally in love!

Since I can't be the only one who started out uncertain, I thought I'd share two ways to rock the Lularoe Carly dress that are perfect for any season and totally versatile! This first look is great for the warmer weather we've been having and I love the knot at the bottom for a little twist on an otherwise straight dress. I have worn it without the knot, too, and it still looks very cute and flattering!

This second look includes the cutest pair of Lularoe Leggings--the Must-Have LLR Item, for sure, and a great option for those who haven't yet jumped on the Lula bandwagon! They are truly buttery soft and worth every penny to have at least one pair in your collection. My friend Joni has a huge selection of One Size (sizes 2-10) and Tall & Curvy (sizes 12-22) leggings in tons of cute and colorful prints! I didn't believe that leggings that could fit a size 2 could possibly fit my size 6 frame, but they are so stretchy they fit comfortably! The length is just slightly too long for me (I'm 5'3) but they scrunch up without looking frumpy and can always be rolled or cuffed. I love that they have stayed soft after so many washes and look great with so many items!

I knotted the Carly up a little higher this time to show off more of the leggings' print. Paired with ankle booties, a cardi, and hat, this is going to be one of my favorite looks this fall!

Now it's time for a GIVEAWAY! I've teamed up with Lularoe Joni Bond to bring one lucky winner a FREE pair of buttery soft leggings!!! Just head to Instagram to enter to WIN! Winner will be announced on Friday, March 4!

Flutter Sleeve Floral Romper for Spring

Have you ever seen such an adorable romper?! I just love this floral for spring, and the blush + black combo is a super cute change to my usual wardrobe hues. Of course I had to coordinate a blush eyeshadow look. And did I mention this romper has pockets?! As if the ruffle hem, 3/4 flutter sleeve, and surplice neckline weren't enough to win you over!

I'm not normally a romper girl, but I'm trying to expand my wardrobe past skinny jeans and dresses. I'm also a little self-conscious about rocking something similar to shorts. I've never understood why I'm so insecure with my legs in shorts but not dresses! So weird! If any of you have tips for slimming down thighs, fast, I'd love to hear them! Haha.

I feel like the ruffles at the hem of this romper helped me through the fear of a form fitting short. I love that it's just enough flare to be trendy but not so much that my hips look extra wide or curvy. I'm also digging this flutter bell sleeve trend lately! Such a cute feminine look!

I got this romper at TJ Maxx (of course), but I've linked a few similar styles below + some new beauty products I'm loving (particularly for my new hair extensions)! I promise you'll love them almost as much as you love the price ;)

So what do you think about rompers? Yay or nay?
