Gingham & Stripes

I’m currently seeing stars and stripes everywhere, yay USA, but here’s a couple looks I put together for NYDJ using gingham and stripes. Both looks are a little modern, a little sweet, and very hot weather friendly. Each top is cool and breezy. The denim has special moisture wicking technology that a lot of athletic lines use, so they are extra comfy on those hot days. Read more about the incredible Cool Embrace by NYDJ here.

Anthropologie Summer

The minute I walk in an Anthropologie store my heart fills with pure fashionista joy! I was recently talking to a friend and we concluded this: Anthropologie has the best of everything. The best fashion, the best homeware, the best jewelry, the best brand. Here’s a look that I’ve been wearing non stop. I’m not embarrassed to say that I wore these jeans every single day in La Jolla on vacation, they are SO comfy, the perfect weight, color, and style for mild summer days. The adorable star design eyelet top is only $88!!  In addition to this look, I went ahead and shared some of my favorite Anthropologie Summer pieces.

There’s not a whole lot more to say other than, I love it there, I love everything I’ve ever purchased there, and I’m already getting a ton of use out of these pieces. Yay for Anthro! Wait, now I want to go there right now!!

 

Banana Republic Summer

Banana Republic summer styles are in and I’m here to tell you they nailed the sophisticated cool girl trends. I’ve always been a fan of Banana for their quality basics, and stylish classics. Below I’m sharing a few of my favorite summer pieces, and also one of my favorite looks created with their newest denim addition, the straight leg, high waisted cut off crops that say, “I’m a cool girl.” BEST PART: Banana Republic is running a 40% -50% off your select items sale RIGHT NOW.

Here’s some of my favorites picks from the New Arrivals:

Clarins Lip Oils

I’m not blessed with lush lips. Don’t get me wrong, my lips are good, they work, but I think both of my lips barely equal the volume of Kylie Kardashian’s upper lip. There are so many cool techniques out there to make your lips bigger. I’ve considered a few, but then the thought of sucking my lips off my face until they’re swollen scares me. What scares me more is what my lips will look like after doing that to my face for a few years, like… won’t they start to sag?? Just saying, we should all be little nicer to our faces, which brings me to Carins Lip Oils. This is a lip conditioning I can get on board with. No, you won’t look like you got punched the mouth, but I’m pretty impressed with the results. Clarnins Lip Oils actually help your lips instead of hurting them.

 

Clarins 3 Dot Liner

Clarins has been hard at work trying to make the perfect eyeliner. I think they succeeded. What would be your dream wishlist for an eyeliner? What are all the things you would want your liner to do: go on straight, fill between and against the lashes, make your lashes look longer, not be messy… ahhh, well they did it all with the Clarins 3 Dot Liner!

The Clarins 3 Dot liner has three amazing little points at the end, which you dab along your lash line. It fills between your lashes to give them the look of volume and length. There’s no brushes or awkward applications. I am TERRIBLE at liquid liner! 90% of the time I have a child or dog running around my legs when I’m trying to apply make up, so no fuss/no mess is a big deal to me. The fact I can put the Clarins 3 Dot Liner on straight says A LOT!!
