Peek-a-boo

Since you guys loved this top so much when I posted it on my Instagram, I wanted to share it on the blog today.  The cold-shoulder trend is one of my favorites, and when I saw this cute little number for less than $30, I immediately snatched it up.  It also comes in a pretty nude color, but it’s selling out fast, so definitely grab one while you can.  It’s SO good!

Happy hump day, friends!  I don’t know about you guys, but I am so ready for the weekend already!

Statement Piece

You guys.  I have wanted this coat for SO long.  I have admired it, put it in my shopping cart about a million times, and finally took the plunge.  And while the weather has been nice here in the SLC for the past couple of weeks, there is still plenty of chilly weather ahead of us (it snowed on Sunday!).  And not only is this coat the perfect layering piece for all of that in-between weather, but it’s also a perfect statement piece for any wardrobe.  So if you’re like me and have been eyeing this stunner for a while, I would totally recommend it (how perfect is it for Easter Sunday?).  Plus it’s on sale right now too!

Pops Of Red

Even though the Holidays have long since come and gone (I mean seriously, how is it MARCH?), I am still absolutely loving a pop of red.  Whether it’s a red dress, a red top, a red pump, or a swipe of red across the lip, red is a color that always has a place in my wardrobe or beauty routine-no matter the season.DSC_4522 DSC_4527DSC_4547 DSC_4509 DSC_4519 DSC_4558 DSC_4514 DSC_4526 DSC_4549 DSC_4583Dress: H&M, same dress different print | Necklace: Macy’s | Hat: Macy’s (under $30!) | Sunnies: Karen Walker (on sale!) | Clutch: Clare V.

Burgundy

When it comes to shopping, I am not very good at purchasing items in advance for an upcoming season.  Instead, I am more of a buy now, wear now kind of girl.  So this time of year gets to be a little tricky for me.  While August is one of my favorite times to shop because of all of the amazing deals, summer is also running short on time, so I want to be careful and not purchase things that I am going to have to put away in a few weeks.  So instead, I look for transitional items to add to my wardrobe that I can wear now and wear later.  And this dress is a great example.  I had been eyeing it in a bright pink color for quite sometime, but when it recently went on sale, I ultimately decided to buy it in burgundy because not only can I wear it now, but it will look great layered with leopard, and booties, and jackets and sweaters!

Summer Fashion Hacks

There are two things I am really into this summer: destroyed boyfriend shorts with heels, and orange lipstick.  And for whatever reason, I seriously can’t seem to get enough either!  Maybe it’s because together or alone, they both give the perfect balance of making you look like you tried, even if you really didn’t.  And I’m here to tell you, that I’ll take advantage of any fashion hacks that come my way during the summer months!

Is it bad that’s only Tuesday and I already can’t wait for the weekend?  I don’t want to wish my summer away, but I just want to play!  lol

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends!

White Out

I have been really into neutrals lately.  But perhaps equally as high on my radar is anything white.  And based on what’s going on out in the market, I can tell I’m not alone!  White is one of the hottest trends of the season.  And with warmer temps upon us, I am ready to put all things white on heavy rotation in my closet! But I want to know, what are you guys thinking about the white trend this season?

Think Pink

Quick (late!) post coming to you guys today.  This was actually a recent outfit that I wore to work and I just had to share because I am loving bubble gum pink so much this summer.  It is a fantastic, versatile color and of course pairs perfectly back to black skinnies and nude pumps with a pop of leopard!

Happy Thursday!

 

 

 

Spring Beauty Essentials

One thing I love about a change in season, is the chance to freshen up my beauty routine.  And because I am so enamored with the below products, today I thought I would share my current beauty must-have with all of you…
Spring Beauty Essentials
1.  Bare Minerals BB Primer: this stuff is AWESOME! I am a huge fan of primers and have tried all of the cult favorites, but this is by far the best.  It goes on silky smooth, has a slight tint to even out blemishes and redness, I no longer get oily in my t-zone after a few hours (like I do with every other primer I’ve tried), and, of course, it has all the benefits of a BB Cream!
2.  Bare Escentuals Pressed Powder:   I have been a fan of the loose powder for years, and was super excited when they launched the pressed.  However, I was initially turned off by the fact that the colors weren’t interchangeable with the loose, and by the fact that it didn’t get rave reviews right away.  However, my favorite Bare rep got me to try it a couple of months ago and I’m hooked!  Initially, you do have to be aware of the difference in application (it goes on a little heavier than the loose if you aren’t careful), but once you get it down, it’s super easy and natural looking.  PLUS no more mess all over the bathroom counter!
3.  NARS Orgasm Blush: I use this year round.  Hands down my favorite blush and works with just about any skin tone.  If you haven’t tried this, you must-it’s a staple in my beauty bag.
4. Bare Minerals Moxie Lipstick in Fly High:  I always gravitate towards YSL and MAC lipsticks, but when I saw a photo of my favorite blogger, Julia, from Gal Meets Glam, wearing this color during NY Fashion week, I HAD to try it.  And am SO glad I did!  The color is the perfect shade of pink for Spring, and it is super comfy and long lasting-in fact, it reminds me a bit of a gloss.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stuff!
5.  Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Apricot:  Another tried and true favorite that I have been wearing for years. In the summer I wear the bronze, but in the spring, the Apricot is the perfect amount of warmth and glow and looks great layered with Orgasm.
6.  Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner:  BEST.  EYELINER.  EVER.  I recommend this to everyone, and everyone who tires it is hooked.  Super easy to apply, doesn’t smudge (I can wear it without any touch-ups all day long), and yet, it super easy to remove.  I guess you could say it’s easy on the eyes in more than one way!
7. MAC Prep+Prime Translucent Finishing Power:  After constantly reading about this product, I recently decided to give it a test drive.  And the verdict?  It’s fantastic!  It is the perfect setting powder, gives my makeup a perfectly finished look, and reduces the look of fine lines and pores.  I think it’s safe to say I’m hooked!
8.  Urban Decay Make Up Setting Spray:  Another tried and true favorite in my beauty routine.  Now that I’ve used it, I can’t go without it.  And let me just tell you, all make up sprays are definitely not created equal.  So if you are in the market, this is the one.  Trust me, try it and you’ll be hooked.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  And please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about the above products!

Pucker Up!

I get a lot of questions about the different red lipsticks that I wear on my blog.  And so today, I wanted to share my four favorites with you.  Now truth be told, I am a total lip gloss junkie and don’t usually tend to gravitate towards lipstick-mostly because I have always found them to be messy and uncomfortable.  BUT since discovering  these 4 products, I find myself wearing lipstick more and more often.  And more importantly, actually liking it!
NARS Heat Wave: really fun orange/red; my go to in the summer; lightweight, but not super long lasting
STILA Fiery: burgundy red color; long lasting vinyl gloss that wears like a lipstick; pretty comfortable, and amazingly long lasting (even through drinking and eating); sponge applicator makes it easy to apply
URBAN DECAY Revolution in 69: true bright red, my personal favorite lipstick (in all colors!); super comfy, long lasting, easy to apply
MAC Ruby Woo: super fun color; cool red tone with a matte finish; a little drying-definitely pair with a gloss
Happy, happy Friday to all of you!  Thank you SO much for stopping by!
