Blue Crew

Blue Crew

Two of my favorite things when it comes to summer style: vivid hues and ladylike silhouettes. Summer is just the perfect time to run around it a poplin midi skirt, or in this case, dress! As soon as this vibrant blue number came in at J.Crew, I knew I had to have it. It's ultra-feminine and attention-grabbing, and I plan on trying to make it work for fall/winter too.

Wedding Season

Wedding Season

With so many weddings going on this time of year, I decided to do a wedding-guest outfit post of my own! Something simple and summery that would work for an indoor or outdoor event. This orange dress is perfect because it's simple and easy but the color adds a punch! To shield from the sun, or cover shoulders in a cold indoor room, I added this neutral tribal print wrap, and topped those off with white ankle-strap heels and a complimenting pink lip with Revlon's HD Matte Lipstick in the shade Devotion

Fleur

Doesn't everyone carry around a purse full of flowers? Maybe not, it's a bit impractical, but makes for some very cute photos! I loved the way these spring blooms peeked out of my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise. To compliment the already ultra-feminine look, I picked out this fun midi skier that I made about a year ago. Midi skirts are so pretty and fun, and fairly easy to sew if you know the basics!

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!

Spring in Seersucker

I've had my eye on these cropped seersucker pants from J.Crew for quite a while now, so when they went on sale, I had to grab them before they sell out! They're light, comfortable, and perfect for spring and summer, especially paired with a chunky sandal and a chambray button down. But what would a preppy outfit be without a statement accessory? Of course, I had to throw on my favorite tortoiseshell necklace with a tiny bit of color to match my orange Kat Von D lipstick.

Orange // Gingham

Orange // Gingham

Good Morning, Lovelies! Don't orange and navy go together beautifully? I was so excited when I found these gorgeous vivid orange Alice & Olivia wide-leg trousers on sale at Bergdorf Goodman in New York last week! I went in with my mother and grandmother just to see the store, and of course walked out with both new makeup and clothing (oops!).

 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!
