Spring + Maine

One if my favorite Spring looks when it’s warm enough to wear sandals, but not blazing hot, thereby, making a sweater completely unacceptable. I’ve had these sandals since I was in college, so it’s a testament to Steve Madden that they’ve held up. I couldn’t find a match for my sweater, but the material in the JCrew tippi sweater is similar. Although if you ever find this weight and sweater type at JCrew factory, I suggest buying several. It’s a lighter cotton than the tippi merino wool and it holds up really well!

Current beauty faves

 

Mini Beauty Blenders…I picked up Sonia Kashuk’s beauty blender at Target about a month ago and loved it. I found this set of three mini ones (perfect for concealer and travel), and couldn’t resist.

NARS ashes to ashes eyeshadow. Besides ondine, ashes to ashes, is my go to eye shadow and one of the ones I use up completely.

Estee Lauder double wear foundation. I ran out of my current foundation and put in my color iq on Sephora and this one popped up as a match. I’m excited to try it out!

Sonia Kashuk’s blush brush and two eyeshadow contour brushes to update a few of my worn out ones.

Bean Body Coffee scrub from Target. This smells amazing, but it’s essentially like covering yourself in dirt. It’s kind of taxing to use, but I did really love the exfoliating properties of it!

Dry shampoo because mine was running out, and mini bobble hair elastics.

Volumizing spray and make-up remover that I got as a mini for travel.

Look for less

One of my favorite looks from this past Fall:

I adored, but couldn’t afford 400 dollar shoes. Since then, I’ve been on the hunt for knock-offs, and finally found some at Target. With a few other pieces I completed the look:

And then tried it out:

Pretty close, right? And for quite a bit less!

Stars + sparkle

I love a JCrew tippi sweater, and if I could own one in every color I would. My favorites are the traditional ones, but I find that the embellished ones are actually slightly more lightweight, perfect for layering in the winter, and as a stand alone in the spring. Paired with just a few sparkly accessories and comfy boots, it’s a win-win.

Red + Gray

I should preface this by saying this is my favorite winter outfit when it’s a typical Alabama winter, not the current 9 degree temps we are having right now. Currently I’m dressed more like this:

Which is pretty much the only way to dress when the wind chill is -1. Here’s a run down of my pieces for when the weather is more of its typical 45-5o degrees:

1. A long sweater that’s kind of like still wearing my bathrobe, but more stylish.

2. My go to earrings for any weekend (mine are real, these are dupes).

3. My shoes are ridiculously old, I love these bowed mule updates.

4. Girlfriend jeans that aren’t skin tight, but not ridiculously baggy.

5. Smokin’ hot, my favorite semi-dark polish.

6. The Epcot tee that I love because it has my birth year on it (you can find it online through the shop Disney app).

7. My bracelets are a stack from my favorite local shop Sweet Pineapple (if you’re local they may still have them in store). These bracelets are a close second.
