Wild for Animal Print

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite trends of this fall: animal print!

I love how versatile and easy this dress is to style. I’ve paired it with sneakers for a casual day out and about along with heels and a leather jacket for a dressier look.

This dress would also be super chic with a pair of booties and a long coat for when the temps start to drop. I’ve rounded up my favorite animal print looks below, what’s your favorite way to wear animal print?

Spotted: Summer’s Hottest Print

Hello hello!

I hope you’re all having a great week! We’ve been having great weather all week here in New Jersey and I think it’s safe to say summer is finally here!

With the warm weather finally being here, I wanted to talk about my absolute favorite print trend for summer, polka dots! I love how effortlessly chic they look on just about anything. There are sooo many great polka dot pieces out right now and I have to restrain myself from buying them all! I love mixing and matching different sizes of polka dots like with the set I’m wearing here. I wore this for a day in Asbury Park and it was so comfy and perfect!

Aztec Swing Tank

Tank: Free People(on sale!) Jeans: Articles of Society Hat: Brixton Wedges: Marc Fisher

Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fun Cinco de Mayo weekend! This aztec tank was so perfect for a Cinco de Mayo vibe, and will be great for the rest of summer. Not to mention it’s on sale and comes in 3 colors! These white jeans are from Articles of Society and they’re definitely my fave white jeans I own. I love the distressing detail and they have a good amount of stretch to them. My wedges are from last year and they’re SO comfortable that I’m thinking about getting a second pair!

Floral Wrap Top

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend! It’s been so cold still in New Jersey, but that’s only making me wish for spring more!! I saw this wrap blouse online and decided to order it, only to discover that it’s even more gorgeous in person!! It’s such good quality and only 65 which is a great price point for a good quality spring blouse! You could easily dress it up or down, I decided to pair it with my new GRLFRND jeans (I’m obsessed! My new favorite denim brand!) and my designer dupe slingbacks that go with everything. I’ll be wearing this blouse for date nights, brunch with the girls and anything in between.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Updated Skin Care Routine with Dior

Happy Sunday!

A few months back, I wrote a blog post about my everyday skin care routine. After writing it, I realized that I had been using the same products for a long time. And while I did love those products, I thought it was time to switch things up and invest in some skin care products with more anti-aging components.

A friend recommended the Dior Snow Purifying Face Wash and the Dior Total Capture creme and WOW this stuff is amazing!! The face wash instantly made my skin appear brighter and have more of a glow, and the creme made my skin super soft. I have really sensitive acne prone skin, so these are definitely really gentle products.

I also started using Tata Harper eye cream at night. I always have dark circles, and this stuff definitely helped reduce that. I also started using The Ordinary retinoid at night before applying the creme. I had heard amazing things about this stuff and it did not disappoint!! Guys this stuff is AMAZING. My skin is so much smoother and it reduced my redness a lot. It’s also a really great price point, and it’s on amazon!!

What skin products are you guys loving lately? Thanks for reading!!

One Year Blogiversary

You guys, I cannot believe today has officially been one year since I launched bridgetbee.com! First off, I wanted to thank all of you who have been following me over the year, all of your support really does mean the world to me!

I wanted to answer some questions along with what I have learned during my first year of blogging. There have been a lot of ups and downs, and I still have a ton of learning to do, but I want to share anything I can with you all!

Why I Started My Blog

Here’s a little background story of why I started this blog

Rewind to about a year ago: I was working at a job that I hated after being in and out of college for most of my early twenties. I still had no idea of what I wanted to do, but I did know that I needed something with a creative outlet. I have had a love for fashion for as long as I could remember but couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do with it. I started seeing a ton of fashion bloggers on Instagram and it inspired me so much. I thought about starting one for months before I actually worked up the courage to do it, it takes a lot to put yourself out there. So with that, I launched my blog and haven’t looked back since!

Here is some Q&A for questions I received about blogging:

Q: How do you stay organized?

A: It’s definitely not easy, especially since I work a full time job along with managing my blog. When you’re running any type of online business of your own you literally need to schedule your own hours! I plan most of my shoots/time writing blog posts on my days off or before or after work. I basically never stop!

Q: How do you grow a following?

A: First, let me start by saying that you should NEVER buy followers! It may seem like a good idea to get going but brands can always tell when your following isn’t authentic, and so will your real followers. My advice? Just stay true to your content and who are you are! Be yourself, engage with other bloggers, and the rest will come naturally.

Q: What’s your favorite part about blogging?

A: For me, my biggest reward in all of this is knowing I inspired someone on how to style something, outfit inspiration, or just that someone took away a piece of advice from someone I wrote. I’ve also met some really great people through blogging!

Q: How do you decide what brands to work with?

A: Before agreeing to work with a brand, I always research the brand and make sure it’s something that interests me and speaks to my blog. I’ve had some really great partnerships over the year and I can’t wait to see what partnerships I build going forward!

Q: What’s your biggest piece of advice for blogging?

A: Be YOU! It’s hard to not play the comparison game, “I wish I lived there, I wish I had that bag etc”. In a field that is over saturated there is always room for someone being their unique self. Always remember there will always be people that can relate to you!

I sincerely hope you guys have enjoyed following along with me over the past year! What type of posts do you want to see from me this year? Let me know in the comments!!

Denim on Denim

Shirt: J.Crew // Jeans: Good American // Glasses: Warby Parker // Mules: Free People

Hello and happy Monday loves!!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I know I did, because the Eagles won the Super Bowl! I’ll be honest I’m not that into football, but Kyle is a big eagles fan so if he’s happy, I’m happy haha.

Anywho, on to this outfit. I’ve always loved how other people pull off the denim on denim look but never knew if I could pull it off. Then I found this denim shirt from J.Crew and it’s seriously the perfect denim shirt! It looks stiff online/in pictures but it’s sooo soft and has that worn in feel which I love.

These jeans I bought last year from Good American and they fit like a glove. I don’t think I’ve ever found a denim brand that fit me better than Good American! These slides are from Free People and I am obsessed!! They’re so comfy and I love the white color for spring/summer. They also come in NINE different colors, so I’m thinking I need another pair!

How do you guys like to style denim on denim? Let me know in the comments, thanks for stopping by!

Accessorizing for Spring with Fossil

This blog post is sponsored by Fossil, all thoughts and options are my own*

Tee Shirt: Brunette the Label // Jeans: Levi’s // Bag: Fossil // Watch: Fossil // Sneakers: Adidas

Happy Friday babes!! One of my favorite colors to wear lately has been pink. Which is surprising, since I don’t really consider myself a “pink girl”. Maybe it’s because it’s the month of looove, or just that spring is getting closer. Either way I can’t get enough of the color lately!

Fossil has some AMAZING new accessories out for Valentine’s Day/ spring! I’m obsessed with this pink suede bag, it kind of reminds me of a Gucci bag but for a fraction of the price! This baby pink watch is so dainty and feminine, while still being simple and classic.

What are some of your favorite colors for spring 2018? Let me know in the comments, thanks for stopping by!
