Leopard and Dots

05 October 2015

Even though this weekends weather made it nearly impossible to shoot today's outfit, thanks wind. Regardless of the weather conditions I can't help but love the red leopard paired with the sheer dot socks - I'm sure the dress will look even better in the coming weeks with opaque tights and a black wing jacket.

Penny and Me

01 October 2015

Since there's no stopping my 70's streak this month I figured this vest deserved another wear before I get to pile on the layers. This time I traded out the dress and OTK boots for a bell sleeve top and pair of jeans {I wish they were flare, but next time}.  I don't know about you but I'm thinking this look is seriously channeling Penny Lane {Almost Famous}, and I'm totally ok with that. 

Ps-Who else is loving my bright mismatched sock situation? Clearly I was thinking ahead when I picked these bad boys out.

Target Beauty: All About Brows

30 September 2015

This post is sponsored by Target.
Brows: You may not think about it, but I’d have to say they’re one of the most important features on your face, aside from your smile. They literally have the ability to make or break a look. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s new territory for me, and that just this past year I started making an effort to get more serious with their inclusion in my makeup routine. Now I can’t imagine being confined to just grooming. So, for this month’s Target beauty post, Pixi by Petra sent over a box full of goodies with brows in mind. I put together two fall-ready looks: one for day and one for nightboth with emphasis on brows and lips. I almost favor the day look because of the simplicity and how it still managed to pop with nearly no other makeup. Which is your favorite?

For day:
First, I prepped my face with a tinted moisturizer and lightly gave my skin a once-over with Pixi’s Color Correcting Powder Foundation in No. 1.

Next, the brows. I am OBSESSED with the Pixi Natural Brow Duo (in natural brown). There’s a pencil on one end and gel with brush on the other. I first drew in some of my light spots with the pencil and finished with the gel for a fuller effect. To highlight the brow and lids, I reached for the Pixi Brow Palette in Shades of Brows using the lightest shade. Finishing the look with a coat of Pixi Large Lash Mascara and Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Petal Pink.

For night:
I decided to build on my day look because, really, who has time to wash everything off and start over again? So I added a little more depth to my brows with the Pixi Endless Brow Gel Pen in light. I added another coat of mascara and light layer of Pixi Correction Concealer in Brightening Peach before adding some color to my life. I gave my Endless Brow Gel Pen double duty by giving my eyes a quick line. Next, I added a light dotting of Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy to my apples and a swipe of Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Raspberry Blush before finishing with Pixi’s new Makeup Fixing Mist for maximum staying power.

Black and Denim

29 September 2015

I think I've gotten a good chunk of wear out of this denim jumper. From a few stylings this summer all the way until now with long sleeves and over the knee boots. I'm kind of obsessed with the retro vibes coming from this particular pairing, don't be too surprised when you see me wearing this on repeat this fall. xo.

Walgreens Beauty: Smokey Metallic Eyes

28 September 2015

Fashion Week is about taking risks in style, accessories, makeup and even hair. Some risks, though, are hard to take. Example: I can’t quit my kitten-lined eyes for the life of me. So to help me take the leap, I drew inspiration from some of the shows for Spring 2016 that skipped the liner and gave shadow a stage of its own. While blue was a huge color in the beauty department for Spring 2016, I’m not entirely ready to go that route with fall just around the corner. However I did grab inspiration from the layering of shadows and blending two colors together. I opted for two of my favorite metallics together using some of my favorites from the Walgreens beauty department for a more Fall-ready look that can be worn from day to night and added on to if need {ie: If I can’t go another second without my liner}.

Get The Look:
After giving my face a light once-over with cream foundation and a touch of concealer, I gave my cheeks and temples some color with No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer. I didn’t want it to be too bronzed so I kept things light to avoid clashing with my eye makeup.

Next, the first layer of eye shimmer from Color Prevails in Metallic Steel. I applied and blended from the corner of my eye to the crease, keeping it subtle. Then, I took the Circa Color Saturated Eye Crayon in Pure Topaz and filled in the rest of the eye, blending the two.

Completing the look with No7 Lash Impact Intense Volume Control Mascara in Black and a light layer of Circa Lustrous Lip Polish in Chiffon Glow.
What beauty looks did you love from Fashion Week this season?

Burlington Style: 70's Inspired

25 September 2015

It's no secret that I'm a girl about 70's inspired fashions. It may or may not have stemmed from my love of mom's macrame and bohemian pieces when I was a kid, or when the retro scene was at it again in the 90's {I thought I was styling in my daisy print dresses and overalls in 5th grade}. So, when I saw this month's Burlington Style Squad theme was all about the 70's, I could not wait to get started. This month, I actually put together two looks for about $75.

So far the faux suede tan dress {$15} is a closet favorite. I've already worn it a half a dozen times in varying styles, this one by far being my favorite. Tip: Don't be afraid to layer your pieces. This tank dress looks even better layered over a turtleneck for a more retro vibe. 

Of course, no bohemian outfit post is complete without a little fringe, so this vest paired with this awesome dress {$50} was an easy fit with my favorite boots. I'd have to say it's another successful shopping month at Burlington.
