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?

Currently Craving: February

This month is February, and you know what that means, Valentine's Day! (and my birthday, woohoo!) Here's a list of some thing's I've had my eye on (most of which aren't "traditional" valentine's gifts, but who wants another heart shaped necklace and a box of mystery chocolate?)

J.Crew Ryder Pants

I've been eyeing this gorgeous, classic pants for awhile, and after trying them on in-store, I can attest that they are sleek, comfortable, and so cute! Definitely craving them in both black and navy, but they carry olive green and brown as well! 

Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte is known for it's fantastic pressed-powder products made with amazonian clay (Their clay blushes are my all-time favorites!) and this new edition to their line is full of gorgeous eyeshadow shades that are buttery, pigmented, and such beautiful shades. I swatched them in a Sephora a few weeks ago and I've been dreaming of it ever since!

J.Crew Factory Bucket Bag

Bucket bags are so functional and trendy, and this brown leather one from J.Crew Factory is simple and chic. It will work with anything from leggings and an oversized sweater, to a cute dress and heels. 

Kate Spade Travel Mugs

For your favorite coffee lover, (whether this be yourself or someone else) the Kate Spade travel mugs are too cute to pass up and will brighten up anyone's morning! They come in a ton of adorable colors and patterns, but I'm especially in love with that gold stripe!

Kiel James Patrick Pearl Bracelet

This classic glass pearl bracelet is stunningly simple, and looks beautiful worn alone or in a stack of your other favorites. The anchors come in both silver and gold, and the ribbon ties come in many different colors. They're all handmade in Rhode Island, and KJP also has apparel, tons more jewelry, hats, and shoes!

November Wishlist

Another month, another list of things to crave! Keeping in mind that the holiday season is right around the corner, here's a few things you might add to your list!!

Nasty Gal Wrap Flat

How cute are these tied flats?? Maybe not practical for winter, but something to look forward to breaking out in the spring! The laces are so trendy and you might even be able to pull them off for the fall with tights!

Kate Spade Fairmont Square Monday Crossbody

As soon as I saw this plaid beauty, I fell in love! I loved the solid-color version of this bag, but the pop of plaid makes it even more chic!

J.Crew Factory City Coat

If there's one thing I've been on the hunt for recently, it's definitely winter coats! Things are starting to cool down in NYC and the freeze is on it's way! I love this wool coat from J.Crew Factory (especially the bright red version!!) Such a fun way to keep warm and stay chic!

A Full J.Crew Factory Cart

I tried so hard to pick only one or two of these, but it's absolutely impossible! J.Crew Factory just has too many perfect pieces!! Here are only a few of my favorites!

Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette

If there was such thing as the perfect eyeshadow palette, this one comes pretty close. I'm a big fan of matte shadows (shimmer and I do not get along) and this one has twelve gorgeous shades that create so many beautiful looks! I swatched this last time I was in Sephora, and the shadows are buttery, highly-pigmented, and everything you would expect from an amazing brand like Tarte!

 

Anything you've had your eye on for the upcoming month / holiday season??

Currently Craving: October Wishlist

1. J.Crew Cape Jacket

J.Crew never ceases to impress me. This Fall, they came out with this wool cape in tan and black (I still can't decide which one I want more!) Capes are perfect for the chilly fall and look chic thrown over a dress and tights or jeans and a blouse!

2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit (Limited Edition)

Hourglass has some of the most gorgeous face powders on the market, so when I saw all six of these flawless shades in one palette, I almost died! It's a limited edition palette though, so snatch one up before they're all gone!

3. Rebecca Minkoff Medium M.A.B. Tote

A girl can never have too many black handbags, and this Rebecca Minkoff is the perfect size and structure to handle everyday on-the-go life! Whether it's running off to class, work, or just out to brunch with the girls, the M.A.B. tote is good to go!

4. Clinique Color Pop Lip Color + Primer

I've raved about these more times than I can count. My current collection contains Poppy Pop, Punch Pop, and Cola Pop, and the next three on the list are Bare Pop, Fab Pop and Grape Pop. All of these lipsticks are extremely hydrating, stay on the lips like magic, and have vivid bold color that looks fantastic!  

5. Kate Spade Willa Flats

It's no secret that I love Kate Spade, and I live in black ballet flats, so these are a match made in heaven! Basic enough for everyday, but the leather bow and spade charm add a little fun!

Currently Craving: August Wishlist

Back to school is coming faster than we know it, and it's time to start stocking up! Check out a few bits I have on my wishlist for the new season!

1. Urban Decay Smokey Palette

Urban Decay just released their new Smokey Palette and I'm already in love! I'm addicted to the Naked 2 palette,  and I can't wait to get a hold of their newest addition! There are so many different smokey eye combinations that you can make with this palette! (Especially excited about those blue tones!)

2. Funny Travel Mugs

These travel mugs from Etsy are too cute! I can't wait to walk around campus with these adorable mugs! (Click on the images to check them out!)

3. Fit & Flare Dresses

I picked out these Fit & Flare dresses from LOFT because they are classic and super flattering, plus they will easily transition into fall/winter with a jacket or black long-sleeve and tights! 

4. Black Rain Boots

I can justify black rain boots as essentials for the rainy (or snowy) trudge to class, and these ones from Barney's Warehouse are too cute! They look more like sleek black boots than your regular rain boot! Here are a few other top picks:

5. Olivia Burton Watch

My watch has practically become part of my skin by now, I hate leaving the house with out it, and when I spotted these watches by Olivia Burton, I fell in love! She has every color and type to choose from! Plus at just a little over $100, they're so much more affordable than other brands! My first pick is the classic black strap and gold face! Check out these pretty ones:

That about sums it up for this month!! What's on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments below!!
