BEAUTY BABBLE// BARELY THERE MAKEUP

As much as I love a full face of makeup, some days I’ll go for a no makeup, makeup look. It’s makeup that is barely there— yet doesn’t look like I rolled out of bed. This look is also great when you are short on time. After I moisturize and apply my primer (read about that here) I will use this FIRST AID BEAUTY Hello Fab 3 in 1 Superfruit Color Correcting Cushion. It helps even out skin tone and brightens your skin. ...

BELL SLEEVE & CHAMBRAY

I love how chambray looks with sweaters. I wore ...

NEUTRALS FOR SPRING

It’s currently pouring rain, but I’m all giddy for spring. Even though spring is still a little ways away, you can start transitioning your outfit into a spring look. During the winter, I tend to gravitate towards dark colors such as black, gray and navy. Although I love those colors, I wanted to add lighter neutrals into my style. Neutral colors are the perfect addition to any closet. They go with everything! Lately I have been ...

SPORTY CHIC

Another easy sporty chic outfit inspo for you ladies! I would consider this look another uniform for me. It’s easy, comfy and best of all— practical! Sneakers are perfect when you are running errands. A baseball hat is perfect for hiding that overly greasy hair you were just too lazy to wash. It’s also on trend with the sporty/athleisure look. This sweater is very soft and comfy. I also own it in the gray color last seen ...

To dress it down I wore some comfy sneakers, minimal delicate jewelry and a baseball hat. It’s an easy outfit that’s casual, but still looks put together. I’ve ...

KNITS AND RIPS

Happy Friday!! These jeans are on repeat! BLANKNYC makes great jeans. I’m a sucker for destroyed denim. It’s taking over my denim collection. These jeans have rips, but also have white paint splatter. At first I wasn’t too sure about the paint splatter, but it’s nothing too crazy. I love pairing my distressed denim with cozy knit sweaters. The tough looking ripped denim balances out the sweet detail of a knit. This ...
