All Laced Up

Olive Mini Dress OOTD

I definitely go through phases with trends. Some days, I want to try everything and other days I want to stick to simple basics. Oftentimes (like what’s been happening lately), I will find one trend that I like and buy several different pieces to wear because I like it so much. Lately I’ve been into lace up details and cutouts. This lace up dress started it all. I’ve been wanting a short dress with sleeves and I loved the lace up neckline on this so much that I’ve been buying “all the lace up things” ever since.

Going Tropical / Palm Print Wrap Skirt

OOTD Palm Print SkirtI love fun prints, especially brighter-colored prints for summer. I really like the way prints can take a simple piece and make it much more interesting and dynamic. This palm print wrap skirt is the perfect example. A wrap skirt is a classic, timeless shape but the midi length and palm frond print makes this one perfect for strolling around on summer evenings. I love the longer length and the print is so fun- it makes me wish I was on an island somewhere, walking along the beach!

April Beauty Favorites

April Beauty Favorites- Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick in You're All Mine, YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer, Alchemic Muse Foaming Body Scrub in CastawayI used a lot of different beauty products in April. I played around with several of my older eyeshadow palettes and I’m still trying to finish a bunch of partly used foundations. Despite that, I still ended up with three products that really stood out over the course of the month. Two were new to me and one was an older product I love in a brand new scent. My April beauty favorites ended up being the Rimmel You’re the 1 Lipstick in You’re All Mine, the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer, and the Alchemic Muse Foaming Body Scrub in Castaway.

7 Best Bright Pink Lipsticks

7 Best Bright Pink LipsticksIt’s no secret that I am a lover of pink lipsticks. I’m not quite sure exactly how many I own (mostly because I’m too embarrassed to count) but it’s a lot. Like, a lot. I can’t help it, I just love them all! They’re great during the winter to add a pop of color to my all-black-and-gray wardrobe and when it’s warmer out they pair perfectly with more colorful outfits. I love all pink lip colors whether they’re light, mod pinks or more nude shades but I especially love bright pinks. I frequently have people ask for recommendations or about the color I’m wearing so here’s a list of the 7 best bright pink lipsticks that you need to own!

Dressing for Winter

dressing for winterAlthough it doesn’t snow or drop below freezing too much here during the winter, it can still feel pretty cold sometimes. I’m always cold to begin with, so winter temperatures don’t really work for me. It can be hard to dress for cooler weather, especially on days that I’m working. I don’t like to wear a lot of layers or feel like I’m super bundled up like a snowman- I definitely still like being able to move around without bulky sweaters inhibiting my movements. I’ve also yet to find a pair of dress pants that I actually like, so dressing for winter for me means finding ways to transition my warmer weather clothes and dresses to the colder months.

Perforated Leather

ootd_leather_cutout_skirtI have an affinity for leather, especially during fall and winter. I love how instantly cool it makes you look and there are so many different ways to wear it. At this point I’ve acquired quite a few leather (or at least faux leather) pieces and I’ve gotten to the point where I have all of the basics covered (jacket x 2, pencil skirt, full skirt, leggings). Now I’m after more interesting items. This perforated leather skirt has a lot of fun details like cutouts and a scalloped hem but it’s also really comfortable to wear.
