My Custom Lightroom Presets!

F&F Lightroom Preset Trio

The First Ever F&F Product!

I’m so excited to FINALLY be sharing this with you! I’ve been working on a project for a little over a year now, & today is the day I get to share it with you. If you are a part of my newsletter community, you have already know about this project for a few days now (sign up here so you won’t be left out next time!), but I’ve created my own custom Lightroom presets! For those of you who don’t know, Lightroom is the software I use to edit my photos on my laptop, but they also have a free mobile app so you can edit your photos straight from your phone. Presets are great because they act as one-click filters that instantly edit & boost your photos.

Over the past year, I’ve been playing around with different editing styles & figuring out what works & what doesn’t. I’ve compiled my 3 favorite presets I’ve created into a trio bundle to share with all of you! They are so easy to use. Once you download them, all it takes is one click & your photo is ready to post! Read below to see the inspiration & magic behind each custom preset in the trio.


Positano Pop!

Positano Pop!

This present was inspired by our romanic, Italian honeymoon. We totally fell in love with the pops of color around every corner. Use this preset to add light, boost the colors of Positano, & give that sun-kissed feel to your photos. This product can be used in your free Lightroom app as well as the desktop version. Bring that Italian flair to the next photo on your Instagram feed. See photos edited with this preset on Instagram: #FFxPositanoPop

F&F Presets

Summer Love

This has been my go-to preset to use this summer. I love the warm pink hue it gives to each image. This preset is bold & saturated, which is totally my style at the moment. It doesn’t affect the exposure, just removes the highlights & shadows to expose the raw colors on display. Add a little bit of summer love to your next photo you post, whether it’s summertime or not. See photos edited with this preset on Instagram: #FFxSummerLove

F&F Presets

Indoor Magic

Indoor Magic is my most recent preset to create & was inspired by my secret garden (aka my beauty room). This preset also gives a bit of a pink hue to a photo while also softening & brightening each photo. I love using this preset on photos I take indoors, but it also works great with outdoor photography. Add a bit of magic to your photos with the Indoor Magic F&F Preset. See photos edited with this preset on Instagram: #FFxIndoorMagic


How To Use These Presets

*Download the free Lightroom app to use these presents on your mobile device*

After purchasing, you will receive an email containing the 3 individual preset files. On an Android phone, simply download the DNG files. On an iPhone, download & save the image (even though there appears to be no image). The next steps are the same whether you have an android or apple phone. Open the Lightroom app & import the DNG file. Now it will show up as an image. Up in the right hand corner, you should see three little dots. Tap that & then click “Create Preset”. Enter the name of the preset, & now it is saved in your app to use on any of your photos!

Vintage Floral Pieces Under $75

Vintage Floral Pieces Under $75

How Adorable?!

Totally obsessing over these gorgeous vintage floral prints. Some of these might give you some grandma vibes but in the very best way! Like, I wanna be that kind of grandma! But in all honesty, prints similar to these can be found in many current designer collections. All of these are under $75, but most of them are around the $20 mark! I love finding these affordable gems. It’s so hard to choose which ones to get because they are all so perfect! (This dress I already own & it’s even better in person!) Happy shopping!

The Nordstrom Sale Is On!

For the past week, this sale has only been open to Nordstrom card holders, but now it’s finally open to everyone! Things in the sale always sell out SO fast, but if there is an item you particularly love, keep an eye on it because the frequently restock well loved items in the sale.

Yesterday, I went in my local Nordstrom & did a dressing room try on for you guys. Sometimes, it’s just better seeing the items on someone you know rather than on a model or on a rack. I tried on quite a few pieces & linked other items within the sale that I would style each piece with. Most of these items are for the upcoming fall season. It’s coming up quick (even though it’s still super hot!), so now is the perfect time to shop those essential items your wardrobe really needs. Towards the bottom, I also shared some beauty & home favorites that are included in the sale as well!

Happy Shopping!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

This peachy-pink sweater is oh-so-soft! I love the fit as well. It’s not too tight but not oversized either. For the skirt, I love a good plaid print in the fall. Such a feminine cut, perfect for work. This can be dressed up with heels, but I’m really feeling these sweet, scalloped flats.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I was not expecting to fall so hard for this dress! It’s stretchy, but firm so it holds everything in. The material is thick, almost sweater-like, perfect to keep you warm on chilly nights. Plus, the skirt is SO flattering. You could even wear this into the winter with this emerald faux fur jacket & these gorgeous lace heels.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Ok, ok, ok…this is the perfect thing to throw on & go. I love the care-free look of pairing this cream sweater dress with a pair of brown knee high boots & a green, round, croc-style bag.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

How stunning is this emerald jumpsuit?! This would be perfect for a fall wedding or even a Christmas party. I would style this dress with some feminine pink pieces like this blush coat & these pink croc-style block heels.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

This light sweater top has almost all of my favorite colors in its stripes. In this photo, I have these skinny jeans on, but I’d love to style it with these wide leg denim pants & these burgundy shoes with a small heel to elongate my look.

This classic Parisian outfit that makes a great go-to look. I love that this striped boatneck top has the cutest scoop back. It’s those little details that really elevate your look. Pair it with a great pair of skinny jeans & this iconic trench coat. I truly believe every woman needs a good trench coat in her wardrobe (see all my classic wardrobe essentials here).

The cutest & softest roll neck sweater I’ve tried on in a while. Once again, the colors are just perfection & the length pairs great with skinny jeans. Throw a good trench coat over your shoulders & you’re good to go.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I’ll admit, pullovers like this are not the most fun thing to purchase, but I’m always glad I have them. This one has nice snap details & I love the unique color. Something like this is great to have to go on walks outside, to wear on holiday with family, & to wear to fall bonfires. Pair this with skinny jeans or leggings & a pair of cute Hunter boots.

I’m desperate for a good navy sweater, & this navy chenille one seems just about perfect. I love the neckline & the fit of this to wear with high waisted skirts throughout the fall season. It would also look amazing with these wide leg cropped jeans & tweed heels.

I have a pullover so similar to this one, & I wear it all the time. Wear it with your comfies around the house or to run errands, or dress it up just a bit for coffee or lunch with a friend, with a pair of skinny jeans & this tan pair of knee high boots.

These were my top 5 pieces from my try on!

How To Be A Smart Shopper

How To Be A Smart Shopper

Let’s Go Shopping!

Let’s be honest, we’ve all made bad decisions while shopping. Whether it’s spending too much on something, or buying something we don’t need or really even like, we’ve all been there. In an effort to stop making bad shopping decisions, I’ve put some new rules into practice to help make me a smart(er) shopper. Smart shopping means having more money in your bank account & a clear & curated wardrobe making putting outfits together a breeze.

Before Spending Any Money…

First things first, before you go shopping, you first have to know what you actually have. I recommend going through your closet & taking a bit of inventory on the things you currently own. Having a good idea of what you already have will help you tremendously when trying to be a smarter shopper. This will help choose pieces that will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe.

Next is the fun part. It’s time to get inspired! I like to get my outfit inspiration from a few places: fashion blogs, Instagram, Pinterest, & my newest favorite, the LikeToKnow.it app, but you choose what inspires you the most. When you find an image or item that you like, save it, pin it, or screenshot it immediately to come back to when you’re about to shop.

Creating Wishlists

Finding images other places can be fun & inspiring, indeed, but let me tell you why using the LikeToKnow.it app might be the smartest decision when it comes to shopping. On this free app, you can follow fashion bloggers & influencers & see the exact items you’re inspired by right then & there. Not only can you see how much things cost, but you can also save items you love to wishlists within the app to come back to later! I’ve spent many hours doing this recently, because so many bloggers have been sharing amazing affordable options. You can also find all of my looks & exclusive content by following me (felixandflora) in the app.

You’re almost ready to go shopping! All you need to do now is make a list of items your wardrobe needs. Maybe that’s a classic trench coat, a LND, a pair of denim culottes, espadrilles, or some new accessories. Create your list of items & be specific. Think about the colors you want to look for that will go well with other items in your wardrobe. Knowing these specific details will make you a much smarter shopper. Now let’s go!

We’re Finally Shopping! Now What?

When you’re out shopping or even shopping online, & you find a piece you’re considering buying, it’s time for the interrogation process. Here are some questions to ask yourself: Is this the right color for my wardrobe? Will it flatter my body? & most importantly: Does this go with at least 2-3 other pieces in my wardrobe? If you can only think of one way to wear it with your current wardrobe, ditch it. You need versatile pieces that will ensure you’re making a smart decision by choosing to invest your money in them. If the pieces pass the interrogation, yippee! You’ve just added another lovely item into your wardrobe!

Immediately upon arriving home or receiving your items in the mail, TRY THEM ON! Not just alone, try them on with different pieces in your wardrobe & accessories. If you can’t make at least 2-3 different looks with them, send them back! Never be afraid to return items. In fact, the smartest shoppers return things frequently, because they only want to keep items in their wardrobes that bring them joy, inspiration, & versatility.

If You Buy One Pair Of Shoes This Summer…

We all want that one pair of shoes that will go with everything. That one pair that is both stylish & comfortable & can be dressed up or down. Now what if I told you I’ve found that magical pair for under $50?! That’s right! These classic white espadrilles are an amazing designer dupe you need in your closet. If you buy one pair of shoes this summer…

BUY THESE!

This is not sponsored or anything, I’m just genuinely obsessed with these shoes & the amount of photos I have from just on year of wear can prove that! I love being able to share my affordable fashion finds & this is one of the very best ones.

Espadrilles

The Designer Dupe!

This pair of espadrilles look EXACTLY like the Castaner designer pair, but for less than half the price! When I first ordered them, I was a bit worried that the material would feel cheap or that since they were white, they would get dirty very quickly. I have worn them literally so many times & they look good as new! These gorgeous shoes are amazing, & you just can’t beat the price. In fact, I’ve just ordered another pair, the white lace version this time. I cannot wait for them to arrive! Be watching for them on my Instagram stories…

Best Shopping Week Of The Year

As we all know, Black Friday is right around the corner. But sales are no longer confined to one day. They start earlier & end later allowing for about a week of amazing sales. Not only is this the perfect time to do all of your Christmas shopping, but it’s a great time to purchase investment pieces that rarely ever get marked down. If ever there was a time to buy those dreamy things you’ve had your eye on, it’s now. Let me share with you my cyber week tips & tricks to help you make the most of these amazing sales.

My Tips & Tricks

It’s so easy to get wrapped up in all of the sales & start making impulse purchase after impulse purchase. A great way to avoid getting sucked in, is to go online & do your research before you shop. What are things you actually need? A new coat? Those over the knee boots that have been just out of your budget? A new camera for your blog or to better capture your daily memories or vacations? Write them down & stick to the task at hand. Yes, impulse purchases happen, but sticking to the essentials you really need & being able to buy those bigger ticket items at a lower price are the priority of a sales week like this.

My biggest tip for you though, is to not let this week pass you by without taking advantage it. Yes, you will be spending money, but you will also be saving SO much in the long run. If you’re having trouble thinking of things you should be purchasing during this cyber week of sales, maybe I can jog your memory: boots, coats, a new handbag, a camera, a new laptop, candles, wardrobe basics & layering pieces, undergarments, a dress for your next fancy occasion, a new tie for your man, a fresh set of suitcases, a new lamp for your home, or even a new rug. Hopefully some of these ideas can help you remember the things you need so you can best take advantage of this week.

Stay Up To Date

I will be updating my Facebook page quite often, maybe even hourly, over the next few days with the latest news on sales & discount codes. Let this be your one stop shopping destination for cyber week. I will be linking directly to retailers as well as sharing with you my favorite pieces from each sale. It will be quick & easy for you to use with minimal scrolling on your part. Follow my FB page here.
