T3 Micro - Singlepass Luxe Straightner & Featherweight Luxe Hair Dryer Review


Today's post is all about my new found love for T3 micro products! I've heard so many great things about this company and had been dying to try out some of their styling tools, so I jumped at the chance to do a product review for y'all. I know my first question was, is it really worth the splurge? They call these products the Luxe and for good reason. Sleek, stylish, luxury that is how I would describe these beautiful tools. From the rose gold accents to the jewel detailing the craftsmanship is superb! By far the prettiest hair products out there! Ok so now your wondering, but do they really work? I'll be breaking down each of these below with my honest experience of their user friendliness and all around comparison to other styling tools.


First up the Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer. I can only sing high praises about this tool. It not only cut my drying time in half but my hair actually feels softer after using it. It has three heat settings, a cool setting and two speed settings. What really amazed me though was even the hottest setting wasn't super hot like most others are but yet it still took less time to dry! It is also a lot quieter which hubby really appreciates in the mornings. Haha! In the past I've always tried to let my hair mostly air dry to avoid the frizz I receive from using heat on it. After a couple weeks of using the Featherweight Luxe my hair is shiner and more frizz free than using no heat at all! It also comes with a Tourmaline 2.5 roll brush that is great for adding extra volume to the hair. My take, you should absolutely invest in this hairdryer!


Next we have the Singlepass Luxe Straightener. It has five adjustable heat settings ranging from 260-410 degrees as well as flexible plates and a contoured body which allows it to glide smoothly through the hair. This means no more breakage and less damage to your locks. It's truly all in the name, one effortless pass and you'll  have sleek shiny straight hair. I usually prefer to add waves or curls to give myself a little more volume. To me this is the best feature of this tool! You aren't limited to one style, you can really achieve any technique you want! Check out this tousled beach waves I created below.


My overall verdict, the T3 line lives up to all the hype!! I was super impressed with each of these tools and I feel that you would equally love them! Yes they are an investment but so is your hair! You can be sure that these products are giving your locks the best they deserve and will last for many years to come. I've linked them below for you to easily shop. Please let me know if you have any other questions I didn't answer in this post in the comments below.

New Spring Favorites



I've got Spring on the brain! Florals, pastels and flirty little silhouettes all calling my name! Deciding it was time to refresh the closet and start planning posts for the warmer weather that's shortly ahead, I did a little online shopping last night. There are so many pretty new arrivals out it's hard to choose just which to buy. I thought I'd share all my favorites and let you help me out with the decision process! All images are shoppable, simply click on an item to be directed to product page.

No surprise to anyone but floral will be hanging on strong as the dominate print for the upcoming season. While I'm utterly obsessed with each of these dresses, they are all very different in their style and cut. Which do you prefer? Perforated accents will be super popular as well. We are use to seeing this a lot in heels and booties but I'm really digging this detail on bags. Take for example this tote that's just $75 and come in four Spring perfect colors. At the very top of my wish-list though is the Rebecca Minkoff white feed bag!! #swoon am I right?!

 



Bright bold stripes, oversize ruffles and updated oxfords are a few of the trends you can expect to see this Spring. This J.Crew mixed gingham print shirt is a rather tame version of the "new button down" making it versatile and more everyday wearable. If you really want to stand out though try embracing this trend with one of these bold options below.



Ok so now I could really use your help ladies! Let me know which items you wouldn't want to live without and your favorite trend for the new season in the comments below. :)

How to Style a Peasant Blouse - Now & Into Spring

Ivory Peasant Blouse // BaubleBar Turquoise Pendant Necklace // Turquoise Ring & Bracelets - Barse Jewelry // Similar Skinny Jeans // Similar Crossbody Bag here & here & here // 
Marc Fisher Wedges here & here 


Happy Monday babes! Hope your having a great Presidents' Day! I'm partnering with one of my favorite boutiques The Mint Julep for today's post. This Ivory Peasant Blouse is just one of the many cute new arrivals they have, so be sure to check out their site for lots of Spring inspo! I initially planned on styling this tunic for Spring but our weather has been all over the place lately. Seriously it's one extreme or the other and I never know whether a coat or shorts is in order for the day. Contemplating that you may have this same issue too and since it's been a minute since I've done a Now or Later shoot, I thought it would be fun to show you how easily this top can be transitioned between seasons! Simply swap your layering pieces for some statement turquoise and your over the knee boots for wedges. No need to wait, this pretty blouse is perfect for any season! 

You'll probably see this cognac and turquoise combo a lot on the blog over the next few months. It's just one of those perfect pairings don't you agree? Though this necklace isn't included, BaubleBar is having their semi-annual sale right now (up to 70%) and tons of my favorites are a part of the event. Hurry though because it ends tonight!!

Lace Boho Blouse & Flare Denim

Similar Floppy Hat // Cropped Lace Blouse // Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace - ( Code whatcourtworexoxo at Rocksbox for a free month!) // Similar Scarf here & here // Dupe Chole Hudson Bag - T.J Maxx //


This weather seriously has me going crazy you guys! The day we shot this it was 75 and sunny and today we are greeted by a frigid 27 degrees. One thing is for sure regardless of the temperature, I've got spring fashion on the brain! Pretty white blouses like this one from Dezzal are the staple of my closet in warmer months. To me there is no better combo than a crisp white top paired with blue jeans. A classic that is sure to never go out of style! While browsing their website I came across this lacy number and fell in love with it's bell sleeves and inset detailing. There are endless ways you could style this top (Be advised to check sizing info carefully. Not traditional U.S. sizing and runs small so go up at least one) but I felt like it was the perfect piece to create a Boho look around. Flare denim has made a huge comeback (I couldn't be more thrilled about this!) and I've been itching to break out a few of my oldies and showcase in true 70's inspired style. Add a floppy hat and a few other fun accessories and you've got a chic modern day take on flower child fashion.

What do y'all have planned for the weekend? Surprise surprise temps are taking a drastic turn here but thankfully it's in the warmer direction, so I'm thinking a beach day is in the cards! Hope you have a great one!

Valentine's Day Outfit - Tulle & Sequins



Sharing one last look for Valentine's Day and I believe this one is my favorite! This sequin tee is the prettiest shades of lilac and blush and matches perfectly with these velvet sandals. The blush beauties I just can't get enough of! Blush is literally taking over my closet y'all! Haha They are under $100 and run TTS. Not only do I really love the combination of textures but this tulle skirt takes me back to my ten year old dreams of a becoming a ballerina. ;) To dial back the ultra feminine vibes and modernize the look some I added a denim jacket. A great way to bring versatility to all of your more girly pieces! While I titled this for Valentine's day I feel like it may be more suited for a Galentines party don't you? Because let's be honest, ladies are going to appreciate this pretty ensemble a lot more than your man (well at least mine! Hes more of a jeans and tee kinda guy lol). With the Spring season nearing it's approach you could also keep this outfit in mind for Bridal/Baby showers. Wherever you choose to wear it your sure to be the belle of the ball. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday!

Fun Fringe Cardigan & Over the Knee Boots

 Earrings - Rocksbox (Use code whatcourtworexoxo for a free month membership) // 


Happy Friday guys!! We may have Spring on the brain right now but the groundhog says 6 more weeks of winter. I know worst news ever right? No need to fret though because today's cute winter look will have you excited for the extended cold weather ;) Retailers are pushing out new Spring arrivals which means great items like this Fringe Cardigan get marked drastically down! I'm talking under $20!! There are a couple color options but I'm loving the hues in this one and that fact that it would also layer well over a dress once it warms up some. Both it and these Over the Knee Boots are from Zaful. A great online site for stylish yet very affordable clothes and accessories. 

The designer version of these boots will cost you $800 and even some of the best dupes I've been able to find are still around $150 - $200. These pretty taupe beauties are a quarter of that! I love how they stay up with minimal slouching and the chunky heel makes them very comfortable. With that said I always want to give y'all an honest review of any of the items I style! In order to wear these boots you must have a very small calf. As you can see from the pictures they are literally glued to my legs. I did find wearing them without jeans layered underneath allowed for quite a bit more room but they are still very slim. Just wanted to give you a heads-up before purchasing.

Who is excited for Super Bowl Sunday? Hubby and I are more college football fans but my mother in-law is a huge Patriots fan so we will be pulling for them. Enjoy your weekend loves!

Valentine's Day Outfit - Red Ruffle Top

Red Ruffle Top // BaubleBar Earrings // Similar Distressed White Jeans here & here // 
Michael Kors Watch // Chloe Drew Shoulder Bag & More Affordable Option here // 
Similar Leopard Pumps here & here 


We are only two weeks away from my favorite holiday! Whether you've planned a romantic evening out on the town with your significant other or a fun Galentine's party with your girls, this easy look is the way to go. I'm all about the ruffle trend right now so this under $50 top instantly spoke to me. It comes in four colors total but this vibrant red was the obvious choice for the holiday. I paired it with these cute ombre earrings that are also under $50 and added bonus, super lightweight! You could go with a neutral heel as well but let's be honest a little leopard touch makes any outfit more fun and flirty right? 

Hope you guys are having a great humpday! I'm planning on doing a major overhaul of my closet today. I've got so much crammed in there, I'm overlooking some of my favorite pieces or still have items with tags that I've completely forgot I owned. Does this ever happen to you? I figured it was time to clear out some of the old and make room for Spring. Speaking of Spring, anyone else getting the fever? I was thinking of putting together a roundup of some of the trends and favorites for the upcoming season. What do y'all think? Let me know in the comments below or any other ideas you would like to see.
