Summer Fashion Inspiration at Macy's #AmericanIcons Event

I was compensated by Everywhere for this post but all opinions are my own. 

Last week I attended the #AmericanIcons event at my local Macy’s. I was short on time but I had one agenda on my mind: finding summer style inspiration. I wanted to break away from my typical summer uniform: tanks and my beloved chucks. Not that I’m giving up that look completely, but it’s time to start dressing as if I have an invite to somebody’s rooftop party at any moment’s notice. 

While waiters passed out trays of wine, glass coke bottles and hor d'oeuvres, I enjoyed a complimentary manicure while watching live models change their outfits every 15 minutes. 

Here are a few styles that got my attention:

I want a romper in my life. Designers don’t show short girls love. I'm not about that "pay $60-for-an-extra-long-romper-and-then-pay-a-tailor-another-$20-to-hem-it-up" life. I'm gonna find a romper in my size and length and I'm gonna rock the ish out of it. Before the end of summer. #ManifestThatIsh. I love how I can dress up a romper with sexy heels and a belt or dress it down with my chucks and denim jacket. 

Before I left, make-up artists was on hand to give quick makeovers. I didn't want a full face but I've been wanting to know how to spruce up my eyebrows for a while. I asked one of the makeup artist to show me her tricks. 

She did a little filling in and a quick contour and I got the above results. Eh... I'm not in love with it. I'll stick to my natural brows. 

I couldn't stay at the event long so I missed on a bunch of other fun events and sales happening at the store. Macy's will be celebrating American Icons all summer. You could can join in on the fun by taking a picture of your favorite things about America and tagging #AmericanIcons on your favorite social media platforms. You can follow my Instagram feed to see my version #AmericanIcon.

Macy's is my everything! And I sooo need to get my eyebrows together. They are very thin so I try not to bother them too much but they definitely need some attention.
