Orchid Balloon Sleeve Sweater





I think I'm going to start calling this the mystery sweater! I discovered it on a Target run a few weeks back and swooned over the color, but when I felt how soft it was I HAD to have it! For some reason, I can NOT find it online! I have searched and searched with absolutely no luck! I thought maybe it was just because it was new, but I've had it for about 4 weeks now and still haven't seen it pop up on the site. Thankfully, if you're as smitten with this springy lilac hue as I am, Target has another cute option available right now! If the statement sleeves are more you thing, I've linked a similar Target sweater for you, too!

If you ever wonder what a blogger does with their hands during a photoshoot when they forget to bring a bag, clutch, or token Starbucks cup...this is it. Oops. Totally dropped the ball on this shoot! It was kind of a fun challenge, though! My fellow blogger gals will know what I mean ;)

Since this color has me dreaming of spring, I went with white denim. It's such an easy way to make a winter sweater instantly work for those colder spring months! We are expecting a whole new round of snow this weekend, so I'll be on the sweater weather train for a little while longer. Are you done with sweaters or still looking for new ways to wear them? I love hearing where y'all are from!




I don't know about you, but I'm definitely over this hideous cold weather! As much as I love a little snow and wearing all the cozy clothes, I really just need a touch of sunshine lately! This bright orchid sweater was just the thing to lighten my mood--even if the weather wouldn't cooperate to match it.

A Classic Black + White Outfit







There's just something about a classic black and white ensemble that will never go out of style. It's chic, easy to put together, and can really be dressed up or down. I decided to get dressed up for this one and think it's the perfect fancy date night look, especially with Valentine's Day coming up!

SHOP THE LOOK


Can you believe this skirt is only $15?! I'm normally a size 6 and ordered the large based on the size chart and it's a great fit! I have a little wiggle room but if I'd sized down it would have been too snug, so I'm happy with the fit. I love that it's a neutral material that works for any season so I can get the most use out of it.







I just can't get enough of this fuzzy eyelash sweater, either! It's SO soft and looks great with distressed jeans and boots, too. I actually wore it to Girl's Night in December and got so many compliments on it! I love that the wider neckline lets me wear it almost off the shoulder in an old Hollywood type of way as well as just normal V neck style. The crisp white color is a nice change from the creams and ivories I usually gravitate towards this time of year, too. How do you feel about the eyelash sweater trend? Do you like black and white together?

Grey Mock Neck Sweater with White Jeans


*This post contains affiliate links. Your support is what makes Like Honey possible. Thank you!*





Yep, it's finally that time of winter where I cave and break out my white jeans. I just can't help myself--white jeans are the best! I love how crisp and put together they look, while still being comfortable and warm for winter weather.





Oh, and this mock neck sweater? It's only $26 and you can save 40% if you spend $40 or more. The website claims this sweater runs large, but I disagree. I sized up to a medium for a longer, looser fit and it's just perfect. It's still completely stocked in this color but comes in a few others, too! I will definitely be wearing this one until spring sticks around!

SHOP THE LOOK


Are you a turtleneck person? I don't love the way they look on me and they tend to be bulky, but this mock neck style is the perfect solution! Warm neck with no bulk! I just love how cozy this one is! How would you style it?

New Year, New Healthy Hair Routine

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #HaircareWithIntegrity #CollectiveBias


We're a week into 2019 and I know I'm not the only one feeling that new year motivation! It's so easy to make these grand goals and plans for revamping my life, but this dreary winter weather can really put a dampener on all of it--especially my hair routine. As cold temps settle in for the next few months, I'm starting a new hair care routine to ward-off any winter damage and jump-start my healthy hair goals for the new year, thanks to a few easy tips and an affordable, yet high quality, new line of hair care products!


TIP #1: SLEEP ON SATIN

I'll be honest, I first jumped on the satin pillowcase trend solely for the luxurious feeling of drifting off on a cool, silky surface. When I saw how much smoother and sleeker my hair was right after waking up, I was sold! The satin material fights frizz on your hair (it's also gentler on your skin!) so bedhead is a thing of the past! If you have particularly stubborn frizz or curly hair, you might also consider using a t-shirt instead of a bath towel to blot your hair dry after showering. This will eliminate even more frizz and make the results from your satin pillowcase even more substantial!




TIP #2: PICK THE BEST PRODUCTS

The foundation of all good hair, comes from what you put in it! My budget is sort of limited, so finding a salon-professional brand of hair care products at a drugstore price is all I could ever ask for, and Sally Beauty had just what I needed! Biotera Natural Origin products are a high-quality alternative to Biolage R.A.W. products at a fraction of the price! They're also derived of 97% natural ingredients, free of sulfates + parabens, and come in 100% recyclable packaging so your hair isn't the only thing you're taking care of! The Natural Origin line features 7 different products--Click the image below to shop the 3 I picked up on my recent trip to Sally Beauty:


NATURAL ORIGIN NURTURE SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER

This particular line is made with coconut oil and honey to be ultra nourishing, especially for dry hair which is one of my biggest struggles, even in the summer! It's free from silicones, sulfates, parabens, and dyes so there's only room for the good stuff. All of Biotera Natural Origins products are color safe & gentle, as well, so if you're a hair dye fanatic you'll love being able to nourish your locks without draining the life of your color.

NATURAL ORIGIN RENEW LEAVE-IN SILKY MILK

A strengthening moisturizer spray that gives your hair 2X more softness and 7X more strength! If you have your hair tied back often, even with gentle hair ties, any added strength is a must! The added moisture is another bonus for silky hair, every day!




TIP #3: CHOOSE THE RIGHT TIE

I normally wear my hair down, but when I'm working at home or busy with little ones, getting those locks out of my face is essential. I'm trying to be kinder to my hair by choosing hair ties that are made to prevent the damage and breakage that regular pony-tails tend to leave behind. An added bonus is that most of these don't leave those awful kinks in your hair!




TIP #4: DITCH THE DRYER

I couldn't tell you the last time I fully blow-dried my hair! I'm so glad I ditched this part of the routine, because not only do I get a little extra sleep in the mornings, but I'm also seeing the benefits of less heat damage. I still use a curling iron or straightener most days, but the Natural Origin Leave-In Silky Milk gives back a lot of the moisture I need to keep my hair looking fresh and not fried.



These 4 tips are really helping me revamp my hair routine for the new year. I already feel such a huge difference from these little changes and it's such a confidence booster! Do you have any hair goals for 2019? Biotera Natural Origin products might be able to help you achieve them! Just head to your local Sally Beauty and pick up any of the 7 products to jump start your healthy hair routine! No more bad hair days!
