City Hall

City Hall

No, I didn't get married, although this spot is where tons of young lovers in the city come to get married and snap a few pictures in this gorgeous little park. The fact that it had just stopped raining a few hours prior to this made the pavement of the park glitter, and the early morning light made everything in the city seem fresh and hopeful.

I finally pulled this skirt out of the back of my closet. I made it about two years ago to wear on Christmas, and this is only its second time seeing the light of day (I need to pull it out more often!) I love pairing this dramatic and slightly formal skirt with a roughed up and casual denim button down. Adding a pair of glittering earrings just pulls everything together, and the block heeled ankle boot keeps it from getting too prissy.

I was so excited to see these block heeled sandals from Target come in the mail, and couldn't wait to break them out in this gorgeous spring weather! They're not too tall, but definitely dress up even a simple jeans and tee. I paired them with an easy army green button down and jeans (cuffed jeans and block heels are a match made in heaven, no?)

Then there's my new nail polish obsession. Essie's Geranium is the perfect summer red. It has a hint of orange in there, and naturally I just had to pile on this fun hue with Clinique's lipstick in Poppy Pop, and a pair of equally bright earrings from Francesca's. 

Finally, I had a little spark of inspiration, grabbed a long silky scarf, and tied it as a belt. Scarves are the easiest and most versatile accessories. Around your neck, waist, head, bag, they can go anywhere! Grab one in a fun print and play around with it, you never know what you'll come up with!

Happy Friday, Lovelies! I know I'm excited to relax this weekend after a very busy week, but today I thought it would be fun to pull out these 60's/70's inspired pants (courtesy of Kayla) and pair them with a simple black long sleeve and heeled booties. I added this chained ear cuff set from Forever21 (They've stepped up their game since I stopped shopping a few years ago) and gold triangle necklace to add a little edge.

January Favorites

Grace Coddington Memoir, Stella and Dot Eva Ear jacket, Benefit tinted lash primer, LUSH cosmetics cup o' coffee facial mask and scrub, anastasia beverly hills contour palette, kopari sheer coconut oil

It was so hard to narrow down just a few favorites for this month! Between all the amazing gifts I received for Christmas, and new products I've been trying out, it was a very difficult decision! So here's a bit of beauty, an amazing book, and just a touch of fashion that I've loved this month!

Benefit tinted lash primer, LUSH cosmetics cup o' coffee facial mask and scrub, kopari sheer coconut oil

We'll start off with the bulk of the beauty. I've been all about going back to natural products lately. The Kopari Sheer Coconut oil is amazing as a makeup remover, moisturizer, nail oil, and split-end saver. Next up is the LUSH Cosmetics Cup o' Coffee facial scrub and mask. This little powerhouse of caffeinated-goodness perks up your skin, (bye bye dark circles) and leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft! Finally, the Benefit Tinted Lash Primer has totally changed my lash game! I use that as a base coat under the L'Oreal Million Lashes mascara, or alone if it's a natural makeup day. 

Grace Coddington Memoir, anastasia beverly hills contour palette

Two awesome things I got for Christmas made the final cut. My grandmother gave me a few books, and one of them was Grace Coddington's Memoir. I'm only about half way through it, but so far its full of funny and insightful stories about her childhood and early career. Such a good read. Next up, the Anastasia Contour Palette in light to medium. I was super skeptical of a contour palette because my skin is so fair, put this one is very easy to blend, and not too dark!

Stella and Dot eva ear jacket

Finally, we have these little gems, the Eva Ear Jacket from Stella and Dot! My sister gave them to me for Christmas, and I'm absolutely obsessed with them! The set comes with two pairs of studs and one jacket back, so you can wear the studs alone or either one with the jacket. Too cute!! Check them out in my Speckled Grey and Bright Poppy style posts.

I am absolutely obsessed with this bright red turtleneck sweater from J.Crew Factory!! It perfectly matches my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise, and paired flawlessly with my NARS matte lip pencil in Cruella.  

I added just a touch of sparkle with these Stella & Dot ear jackets  and tied up my hair to show them off with this metal hair pony!

Fall Flannels

Fall Flannels

What could possibly be a better way to kick off Fall than with a flannel dress and these adorable new Starbucks cups! (It's not a PSL, I apologize, but my love affair with White Mocha's cannot be replaced)

I paired the dress with my roommate Kayla's brown saddle bag (The Style Genre), a vintage Citizen watch, black ballet flats, and mixed the diamond-back of my LOFT earrings with pearl studs!
