WEEKLY WISHLIST

Click to Shop!

Hi babes! Back in action with another weekly wishlist, of course. Once again, fall/transitional pieces have taken over. I’ll miss you, summer. It’s actually been sort of chilly the past couple days and I’m getting anxiety for winter. Cue another jacket and cozy knit (men’s) tee for my troubles.

I keep hearing rave reviews about the Beauty Blender and I really want to try it out for myself. Have any of y’all used one? Last night, I spent a considerable amount of time watching Youtube tutorials, so I’m pretty much an expert now (no). It’s probably best I just take the plunge and order it, plus, Amazon has a nice little deal right now ($16!). I’m also in the market for a decent lip pencil. I’ve never worn lip liner before, but with red lipstick and my super fair skin, I can’t really get away without it. Does anyone have a good recommendation? Charlotte Tilbury seems to be the “it” make-up right now, but I really have no idea what I’m doing. Not tryna look like Kylie or anything, so tell me what’s up in the realm of lip pencils.

Recently, I discovered a void in my life (wardrobe) and realized a pretty, ladylike handbag was the only thing that could fill it. Seriously though, I really don’t have a structured, “formal” handbag, dah-ling. When looking for a new bag, I always head towards cavernous totes or little crossbodies, but nothing in between. This Zac Zac Posen bag is what dreams are made of, seriously. It just looks so proper and expensive but it really isn’t too pricey for a bag of it’s size/quality. That said, it’s absolutely still an investment piece. I’m also obsessed with this version, but didn’t feature it above because there’s only one left. Someone snap it up! Tortoiseshell heaven y’all. This similar shopper is on MAJOR sale and would be great for the office!

For fall, I’m renewing my obsession with Del Toro smoking slippers and just how…obnoxious they are? The pair above are obviously very tongue-in-cheek but I think it’s fun and if anything else, a conversation piece. This pair is a tad more reserved, and who doesn’t love a good emoji? Another fall fave on my radar is the classic (read: basic, I’ll own it) Burberry quilted jacket. I picked one up on sale in high school and it’s been on repeat ever since. So yeah, six years later, you could say I want an upgrade, please. This red delivers, so I better start saving haha.

What have you been eyeing lately? I hope you’ve had a great day so far, thanks for stopping by!

WEEKLY WISHLIST

Click to Shop!

Happy Friday! So maybe I should rename this the “biweekly” or “monthly” wishlist, but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it. First on my priority list is a pair of Nike Roshes. I used to be fundamentally opposed to black sneakers (sneakers…? I literally don’t know what to call them…tennis shoes? Everything looks weird typed out), but I’m going to branch out for these babies. I like how Roshes in particular have been adopted by the stylish set and are more often seen dressed up rather than at the gym. I plan to pair them with leggings and a Rails flannel or [if I was edgy] a leather moto jacket. I’m also particularly obsessed with Chanel Eau Vive. Normally, I shy away from Chanel perfumes as they’re too flowery/powdery, but this new scent is really light and citrusy. I’m also dying for this Cupcakes and Cashmere pink coat. It reminds me of Jackie O or Barbie (similar icons, no?), and I think it would be so fun to bring a pop of color to my fall wardrobe. I hope y’all have a fab Friday! I’ll be back tomorrow with a nice little roundup of #SaturdaySales!

LONG HAIR DOES CARE

Is anyone else obsessed with having long princess hair? The five year old in me loves channelling Tangled. That said, my hair used to be literally tangled. Long hair that’s thick but very fine? Good LORD just the thought of brushing my hair could bring tears to my eyes and even tempted me to bring scissors to my tresses. Then, a couple years back, I discovered this magical brush. I feel like a lot of you have probably heard of the Wet Brush, or seen it at Target, but y’all, I’m here to tell ya to run out the door and buy one right now. If you never want to rip through snarly hair again, here’s the solution. This brush is specifically designed to combat tangled, knotty hair post wash (you can use it on dry hair too)! It literally slides through my hair without any pulling or breakage and I can carry on with my long locks. I feel like I’m hosting an infomercial for this product but I’m seriously obsessed and I think you will be too!

THE BEST GINGHAM SHIRT EVER

unnamed

Click to Shop!

Isn’t that a riveting title? This is important stuff. Seriously though, this J.Crew Factory gingham has been such a staple top for me all summer and will continue to be well on into fall. It’s very light without being sheer and hangs just perfectly. Sometimes I feel too “buttoned up” in button down shirts (imagine that!), but the collar/placket falls just so on this shirt. Think that disheveled chic look. I’ve been pairing mine with easy drawstring shorts (try these) and my fave Joie sandals. It’s also perfect to throw on over your suit at the pool! A gingham button down is such a great basic for everyone, and this one is a great deal too. It’s only $44.50 but y’all know Factory always has sales, so you’ll probably be able to pick it up for even less.

SILVER SERVICE

Click to Shop!

As I’m sure you’ve seen, boho with a side of 70s is back with a vengeance. Along with these trends comes silver jewelry (shoes too!) and I’m actually pretty excited! There’s something so effortlessly chic about silver and I’m also all about the turquoise that goes with it. I think of John Hardy/David Yurman ads where the model is laid out on a beach or tousled bed with bangles up to her elbows – the ultimate in casual elegance. Channel that look in your everyday life with bracelets, rings, and earrings like those above. I love it piled on thick, especially for summer, with shirtdresses or even just a bikini. I hope y’all have had a great Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

PRODUCT REVIEW: CHANEL LE BLANC

IMG_1630-1

 

I got caught at the Chanel counter again y’all, but I’m so glad I did! With it being summer, I have some redness here and there, and aside from that, I wanted my make-up to have a smoother finish. A new primer was in order. Enter Chanel Le Blanc. I picked up this little miracle last week and it’s already a game changer. After moisturizing, I dot it around my face and then apply foundation like usual. Pores appear blurred out and all imperfections are instantly camouflaged! It gives a lasting dewy glow, which everyone is constantly in search of these days. This product also extends the wear of foundation, making my face appear fresh all day long. An added bonus is the SPF 30 and lightweight formula, making this primer ripe for warm weather! If you’re in the market for a skin brightening/perfecting primer, I’ve got your recommendation.

PS: The candle pictured is the single best thing I’ve ever smelled. It came in a set during the Nordstrom sale but is available by itself too!
