KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

Old Navy Dresses $15 & Up!

I love throwing on a sundress in the summer time. I hate how I look in shorts, not to mention my matching shirts are usually wrinkled and at the bottom of my overflowing laundry basket; everyday I swear I'll get the clothes folded and hung. It never happens.

A simple dress is the easiest thing to just throw on and head out the door and still look great. Plus I love all the cute sandals and accessories that go so perfectly with the dresses. And any figure can rock a sundress. Later this month I'll do a fashion post specifically about which sundress goes best with each body type.:)

Old Navy, one of my most favorite places to get summer clothes, has just launched it's new Getaway Dresses starting at just $15.00! And on theif Facebook fanpage, they even have pics with suggested accessories. Here are a few of my favorites:

Flip flops are fine at the pool, but not if you're going out (unless you're 5 yrs. old). Pair your sundresses with more grown-up sandals like the ones in this picture.

Repeat after me, "I need at least one piece of turquoise jewelry for the summer!"

This one is absolutely my favorite! The only thing missing from the accessories is a bold cuff, or a bright bag, or a long necklace. Coral and turquoise jewelry look amazing with white.

Did I say the last dress is my favorite? This one is stunning! I'd pair it with a white or metallic bag.

All photos above along with other Getaway Dress photos can be found on Old Navy's Facebook fanpage.


  1. I agree Christina, dresses are the nicest, most feminine approach to the hot summer. Great post!

  2. Can't beat the prices at Old Navy. Dresses are going to be my friend this summer with my post baby belly weight slowly coming off. :D

  3. Great post and great dresses.
    I love what you say here
    "Repeat after me, "I need at least one piece of turquoise jewelry for the summer!"
    You can find them in my shop :)

  4. simple and stunning indeed! fortunately I have quite a few pieces of turquoise jewelry! not that there's ever "enough"!

  5. I love to wear summer dresses too. We just went to Old Navy this past weekend and got my kids some new clothes. None for me though:( lol

  6. uniquecozytreasures - just love sundresses.

  7. After eating your Chocolate Almond clusters, I will never fit into a sundress again! LOL! When I was younger I loved these kinds of dresses. Nice article.

  8. So gorgeous, Love this fashion style!

  9. Love these selections! I wish I could wear a sundress and look good in it - can't wait for your post about selecting the right one for your body type! lol Great post!

  10. I also love old navy. Very affordable yet cute and stylish!!

  11. Beautiful selections, I love the last one (the earrings are similar filigree that ones in my shop).

  12. These summer outfits are perfect, I enjoyed seeing how you put them together.

  13. I like Old Navy too! Great styles and prices!

  14. I've had the song for Old Navy's tv commercial in my head all day! Very pretty dresses!

  15. Old Navy is great! got lots of gift certificates there last December--my daughters and granddaughters ( and sons in law!) love that place! ;>)


  16. Whenever they handed out the girly dress gene I think I was absent on that day because I have never been a dress person. I definitely prefer jeans/slacks to dresses and regardless of how hot the weather I always wore boots (until I moved overseas and live in hotter than hell weather that is)

  17. Lol, Dafeenah! I used to be a pant-only girl too, but eventually I converted.
