June Wishlist

June Wishlist - Southern New Yorker

This month, I'm getting excited for light, glowy makeup, beachy hair, and bright, fun, summer clothing! 

Everything from J.Crew, naturally. 

Pale blues, stripes gingham, tassels, & bows! J.Crew's spring/summer line is the perfect mix of classic and trendy! My top favorites? This chambray shirt with Ryder pants, gingham slingback flats, and robins-egg-blue beaded tassel earrings. And if that's not enough, this gingham clutch adds the final punch!

Block Heeled Sandals

The perfect heel, whether short or tall, the block heel provides WAY more support than a spike, while being more chic than a wedge. Steve Madden makes an amazing assortment for any need (and in tons of colors!) My favorites are definitely the Irenee and Rizzaa sandals!

Super Glowy Makeup

Lately, my makeup has been all about that glow-factor. Pairing down on the foundation coverage and amping up that lit-from-within, healthy glow! Becca Backlight Primer is a cult-product and I'm dying to get my hands on this best seller! Right behind that, is two Hourglass bits, their new luminizing primer, and another cult-favorite, the ambient lighting powders! But of course, that natural, dewy glow can't happen without taking care of your skin, so......

Pixi Products

Pixi's raved-about Glow Tonic has catapulted it to stardom, but hype is building around a few of their other products as well! I'm particularly interested in their undereye brightener and glow mist!

Kiehl's Skincare

And finally, a far underrated brand that should be on everyone's bathroom counter, Kiehl's. I recieved a sample of their Daily Reviving Concentrate in my Birchbox this past month, and oh sweet mama, it's a miracle in a bottle. (bold claim, I know) Not only has my acne almost vanished, but the overall texture and brightness of my skin is noticeably much better! To the point where I have started occasionally going without any makeup on my skin! (which has not happened since the eighth grade) After seeing this miracle in action, I'm dying to pick up the cleanser, eye treatment, and whatever else I can get my hands on!

 I'm so excited to share this very pastel look with y'all today! I didn't even realize it, but I'm definitely tapping into this year's Pantone colors, with Rose Quartz hair, a Serenity blue skirt, and a Lilac Grey top! Well I snagged this skirt for crazy cheap on the clearance rack at LOFT, and I'm obsessed with how classic and feminine it is!

Culottes & Tattoos

Happy Friday lovelies! The weather has been gorgeous in the city this past week, and I was crazy excited to break out my new Zara culottes! They're so on trend for spring, and I swear, these feel like PJ's! Heeled sandals make them a little more dressed up, but they'd look so cute with flat sandals too!

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!
