Top 5 Summer Must Have Lipsticks!

17 Jun

Summer is a great time to embrace color in your makeup regimen. Although I prefer going minimal on my makeup during the warmest months, I do enjoy a pop of color on my lips. For my day to day summer looks, I usually skip eyeshadow and only wear tinted moisturizer, a touch of blush and some mascara! If I’m not wearing my go to nude lip gloss, I opt for one of these 5 colors below!

Most are pinks, one is a purple and one is a coral. These colors look great on all skin tones so DON’T BE SCARED of some color in your life!

Girl About Town by MAC $16 – Besides ‘Rebel'( which I wear religiously during the Fall/ Winter months) ‘Girl about Town’ is my favorite MAC color EVER EVER EVER! It is such a pretty fuchsia pink!

Girl-About-Town

 

Candy Yum Yum by MAC $16- this color may seem risky for some, but this hot pink adds instant POW to your look!

FireBall Butter Lipstick by NYX $6- This color is NOT true to tube which is great because it looks reddish at first, but goes on as a beautiful coral color!

Brazen Berry by Maybelline $6- This beautiful berry color is a pretty purple that everyone can pull off. Also, be sure to Google Pantone color of the year, this lipstick IS an exact match to radiant orchid!

Vivid Rose by Maybelline $6- Think perfect pink. This bright(but not too bright) pink is perfect all Summer long!

White Chucks! Must Have Summer Sneakers!

27 May

Summer is fast approaching and every girl needs a fresh pair of sneakers to lounge around in comfortably, while staying oh so chic of course! White Converse Chuck Taylors, also known as Chucks are the perfect casual chic sneaker for Summer! They go with everything-I wear mine with dresses, shorts and pants etc! Chucks are also reasonably priced and can be thrown in the washer if they get dirty! Go for it- jump on the chuck wagon! You won’t be sorry!

Perfect Year Round Crossbody Bag!

19 May

I’m so excited to have received my very first Vince Camuto handbag and will be wearing it all year round. This gorgeous bag comes in a variety of colors, but I opted for black and white. I absolutely love black and white anything and this bag can be worn with burgundy in the Fall and peach in the Spring. Black and white is complimentary to most colors.  The great thing about Vince Camuto bags is that they are beautifully designed( they are reminiscent of Reed Krakoff bags)  are very well constructed.  in fact, they are so well made that I was shocked at how reasonably priced these bags are- I mean they are not $40 bags, but they are also not unattainable like many designer bags are unfortunately.  If you’re on a budget, this bag is worth saving for, but you won’t have to save long! Check out the bag below, I hope you love it as much as I do :)

OOTD Starring My Favorite New Clutch!

15 May

Hi y’all this is not my typical outfit of the day post, it’s pretty much all about my favorite new clutch. I’ve been getting a lot of questions and comments on this particular outfit and clutch so I thought I’d tackle then all right here right now. This gorgeous dress is from the Webster Miami/ Target collaboration a couple of years ago. The print is magical and the dress is very flattering on. The dress sold out pretty quickly although you may be able to find it on EBay. My favorite nude sandals were $7.99 at Forever 21 last year and my pretty pastel bracelets are from H&M- also last year! My coordinates collection bracelet IS currently available as well as my Gigi New York Coral clutch, my dainty Catbird diamond ring and my mint sunglasses ! Links listed below.

It’s no surprise that I live for the high- low mix and love wearing my high-end jewelry, bags and clothes with my low-end stuff! I feel like the best looks include pieces at all price points. So if you’re on a budget have no fear, you must remember that money can’t buy style, and if you’re a label snob, remember you’re missing out on so much cute stuff if you don’t give it a chance based on price. I can’t stress enough that when you properly execute your high low mix, most people think it’s ALL high-end anyway!!!!! Cheers to stepping outside of your fashion box and jumping aboard the high- low mix train!!! CHOOOO CHOOOO!
