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!!

Lulus Festival Season

This post was sponsored by Lulus // All opinions are my own.

 

‘Tis the season of festivals. There’s something in the air that makes me want to hightail it out of town and dance my heart out to live music, maybe it’s the spring weather, but this year it’s not just about the physical destination as much as my mental destination. What? I sound crazy? We’re all crazy. Maybe Lulus festival season isn’t just about the big concerts and bucket list experiences, maybe it’s about a little spring cleaning of the soul and letting your true self shine outward. Thanks to Lulus.com I explored just that and brought to you my favorite moments with personal style. You can find my looks and more at Lulus Festival Shop.

Les White Dresses

My love for white dresses, as expected, is soaring sky high as summer swoops in. Here’s a couple looks I wore recently, and a few other suggestions. If you’re looking to glow as you enter a room start with a genuine smile and add a white frock.
