I mentioned my excitement about the edgy twist designers are taking with pearl jewelry, and this ear cuff and ring by Stella Valle are prime examples. The different sizes of the ring’s pearls make it striking, and the ear cuff speaks for itself. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries.
These silk shorts by Dylan & Rose are an old favorite. Click here, here and here for similar high-waisted styles.
I default to my collection of chambray shirts at least once a week. This top is from LOFT, but they have an even chicer, slim-cut version for summer here.
My shoes… my shoes. I can’t get enough of them. I wrote about these beauties on Monday and wanted to show them styled with an actual outfit. They’re selling out fast, but the tan color is available here and the black color is available here.
My purse is Proenza Schouler, and there’s a comparable cobalt bag with gunmetal hardware here.
Last but not least, the lipstick I’m wearing is Kumquat by Bite Beauty, which I wrote about in this post. Absolutely obsessed with this color, and it just came back it stock!
There’s a product I started using religiously a few months back at the recommendation of a friend: Becca Beach Tint. It adds a natural flush of color to cheeks and lips that’s amazing for everyday wear.
I swore my loyalty to powder blush (Harmony by M.A.C to be precise) and avoided hopping on the tint bandwagon because I felt they looked more clown-y than chic. This brand forever changed my mind—it’s feather light, the color dries matte, and it builds better than any cream stain I’ve tried. You’re in complete control of how intense the pigment looks depending on how many times you layer it. It also blends easily for a delicate finish.
This stain is streak-free and goofproof. You could apply it with your eyes closed, and it would still look even and gorgeous—that’s how subtle it is. It’s also water-resistant, which makes it the perfect product to carry to the pool or beach for a hint of flawless color on your face.
Becca’s formula is paraben-free and enriched with vitamin E, which helps heal and soothe skin. I recommend the Watermelon shade for any skin tone (it packs more punch than the other options). You can check out how I used it on my cheeks for a barely there makeup look here.
It’s fun to add new items to your beauty routine each season, and this is one of my summer essentials for sure (along with Bite’s bright lip crayons).
Happy Wednesday babes!
Nine West is on their shoe game. I wrote about the most comfortable kitten heel in history by them this past Friday, and I also wanted to spotlight these gorgeous patent-leather ‘Timeforsho’ pumps.
Nine West ‘Timeforsho’ Pump
I wore these babies to a lunch meeting last week and a table of women stopped me in my tracks to ask where they were from. They couldn’t believe my heels were Nine West and were shocked to hear the price: $79. It doesn’t get better when it comes to style and affordability. Plus, the blush color is spot on for spring and will make you look like you have legs for days. I haven’t come across a shoe this season that’s excited me more, and to top it off, they’re insanely comfortable.
All-in-all, these Manolo-esque beauties look like a million bucks without breaking the bank. They’re selling out quickly, but Lord & Taylor carries them and is offering 15% off today with promo code MAY. Click here to take a look!
