Beauty Products

After reading y’all’s comments on my reader survey it was very clear you wanted beauty posts...I am not super sure why...I will willingly admit I am terrible at beauty. The only thing I think I have room to talk about is my hair. But alas, y’all want this so here is my first beauty post, hopefully I will find more to talk about and I would love your suggestions.
I have the same makeup routine everyday of my life. The only thing that truly changes is if I put foundation on, sometimes I will just do my eye makeup. I have had this exact routine since I went off to college and bought my first set of Clinique...I’ve never looked back. Their products are my absolute favorite when it comes to skincare and mascara. Everything else I buy at Ulta with a coupon because beauty is not a huge priority for me.
To make it more complete I also included my soap/shampoo/hair mousse. I have been using the soap since middle school when I saw a really cool commercial for the cucumber one and went out to buy it at Target.
I hope y’all like this and it is what you’re looking for. If not or if you want more of this content please reach out, I would love to hear from you-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Fourth of July Outfit

It is insane that it is already going to be July and that I am coming up with my Fourth outfit, but here we are! My dad spotted this dress in Target and it is perfect for the day, I love the little curly details along the edges. It is super comfortable, made out of stretch-y tee-shirt material and overall pretty flattering. The bag is also Target {clearly a theme} that I am thinking about DIY-ing...we shall see. What do y'all think? -xoxo darling, Hayden

Lilly Through the Years

So I have a small confession to make...I was lazy this week. Like super duper lazy. To the point where I have very few {as in one} photo for the usual Week Re-Cap post that happens on Wednesdays. So...what to do? Well I don't know if you know this, but today is National Wear Your Lilly Day, a way the preppy community ushers in summer. So I thought, what better way to celebrate, than to show some of my favorite shots of Lilly over the years on Haute Table. Do you have any old Lil photos? -xoxo darling, Hayden

Scalloped B&W

I am living for this shirt, I am obsessed with scallops {as y'all know} but I am not a huge fan of black...but somehow this works for me! I love it! It's on sale at Target, check the sale racks for $7 Victoria Beckham {seriously}. What do you guys think? -xoxo darling, Hayden

What's In My Beach Bag

Oh my goodness it is finally sunny in southwest Florida. We have been having torrential downpours for about five days, to the point where we couldn’t see out of our office windows. It. was. insane. But that is over and yesterday I was able to go to the pool for the first time since moving to Sarasota for the summer! And I cannot wait to head out to the beach in a few days to catch up on sun and read some of the latest books. Below are the things currently residing in my beach bag-xoxo darling, Hayden.
Bag, Wallet, Book, Towel, Waterbottle, Sunscreen, Sunglasses

Dressing Up

Happy Thursday! I am so excited for the weekend. I will be driving home to spend Father’s Day with my family attending a lot of craft beer related functions and I am pumped! Anyways, this dress is very cute, seriously, so cute. You can’t see in these photos but the back of the dress has a bow at the collar and old school buttons like you would expect on a Victorian era dress. The top is navy and the bottom is orange, perfect if you go to UT, Virginia, Auburn, Syracuse, etc. I am planning to wear it to work for a presentation or something like that but you could wear it to anything. What do y’all think? -xoxo darling, Hayden

P.S. I couldn't find this dress on ShopStyle but I have been to multiple
 Targets recently and they have this dress on the sale rack! So head to your 
closest Target for a look.

Week Re-Cap

As I write this I am sitting in the best Statbucks in Florida...that might be an overstatement but I am loving the Starbucks near my office. They have this really long low table that I can work at and I love it. This week has been pretty amazing! My internship is going really well, my parents visited Sarasota this weekend and I had some exciting news. The first piece of news is that I recieved an award for one of my photos this past semester. The second was a culmination -- for the longest time I have hoped and wished a big brand would acknowledge Haute Table...and TARGET did. They saw my photo from this post and published it to their AwesomeShop...they also now follow me on Instagram. I am dead. How are y'all? Is it raining all over your respective towns this week too? Let me know-xoxo darling, Hayden.
 This is my award for my photo from this story.
 The BBQ burger at Shakespeare's. So good.
 JDubs Brewery in Sarasota.
Possibly my new favorite dessert place? Based purely on the name...
Still cannot get over how sweet my employers are.
