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!).

May Wishlist

May wishlist - Southern New Yorker - Tarte, J.Crew, Mark & Graham, sandlas, espadrilles, waterproof makeup, spring, summer, beach, blazers,

This next month is going to be insane! With finals, a wedding, moving home, starting my summer job, and settling back in, I'm excited to get going! Of course, I'll be hitting the beach (hopefully a lot) this summer, so sandals, a cute beach hat, and tote are a must! (Check out last months wishlist for swimsuits!) Plus, with J.Crew releasing so many gorgeous styles for Spring / Summer, I just have to grab a few! There goes my paycheck!

Sandals & Espadrilles 

Time to paint those toes, (might I suggest Essie's Tarte Deco?) and strap on something pretty! These jeweled sandals from J.Crew Factory and Espadrilles from Nordstrom are perfect for your spring and summer wardrobe!

Anything Mark & Graham

I may have left the south, but my love of monogramming will never die. Mark & Graham has a huge assortment of bags, apparel, accessories, and more that you can custom monogram to your hearts content! This hunter green plaid tote and scarf are too cute! A little wintery, yes, but they have tons of summertime items just waiting for that perfect circle script! 

Everything J.Crew

My love of J.Crew is absolutely no secret. Half of the time, I look like a walking advertisement for them. But this season, they've nailed the spring wardrobe. I mean, NAILED it. On my wish list: Teddie Pants in every color and pattern, an Uptown Tote, that gorgeous yellow off-the-shoulder top, and every shoe and accessory offered. (That may be overdoing it a little....or maybe not) 

Tarte Summer Makeup

Tarte Lights camera splashes waterproof mascara
Tarte waterproof cheek stain

Tarte has long been known for amazing, natural, waterproof makeup, and the release of their Rainforest of the Sea collection could not have come at a better time! Everything is geared towards that easy, flawless summer look that will keep you fresh and dewy without melting off your face in the heat or water! 

What's on your wishlist this month?

 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!

April Showers

April Showers

Good morning, Lovelies! Naturally, we're kicking off April with a few showers, and slightly colder weather, but the cold-front can't keep me down in a new pair of J.Crew Ryder pants and a cute raincoat! I went for a very navy look, with a gingham button-down and J.Crew Addie loafers to match! To break up the blue hues, I added my (beloved) Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise, (I did a What's in my Bag tour, if you're interested!) and swiped on my NARS matte lip pencil in Cruella. You can never go wrong with red lipstick and winged liner, am I right?

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!

Suite Life - Jonathan Simkhai

Good morning lovelies! For anyone who doesn't know, I am an intern at a luxury, salon-style store called Suite 1521. This week we had the Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2016 and Fall 2016 collections in, and I couldn't resist trying on a few things, they're just stunning! 

The first look was a separate shredded linen crop top and midi skirt. It was honestly one of the most comfortable things I've ever worn, and so chic! I'm in love with the crop top and midi skirt trend. So chic and easy!

The second (and my favorite) is this red scalloped crop top and white culottes. THESE CULOTTES. I've been a little weary of trying on culottes, but they are amazing. These fit like a glove, and were so soft and flattering, I would almost consider dropping the $375 to buy them! Kidding, but I'll definitely be hitting up Zara for some look-alikes. 

Next week we have Rosie Assoulin, Edie Parker, and Courreges! Let me know if you like these posts, and they might become a weekly thing!
