Bronzed skin and bold coral lipstick screams summer! Small pops of color is the key to keeping your makeup fresh and alive during these hot summer months. All you will need to do is curl your lashes, add some mascara, brush on some bronzer and apply a fab coral lipstick. Trust me, you will steal the show! Here are some of my favorite show-stopping coral lipsticks:
I have been searching high and low for the perfect pair of army green slacks. I find that I am always reaching for a pair of jeans on my casual days so I wanted to switch it up, “spice” it up if you will. I know you are thinking that a soft washed pair of army green trousers is hardly “spicy” but to me, it is! Especially when it’s so hard to find that perfect pair. Each season, I put away my winter gear and switch it out for summer staples. This season, I found myself shopping in my own clothing and I was pleasantly surprised at how many great pieces I had from seasons past! I was relieved to find that my shorts and sun dresses were still intact and in style (so were most of my other pieces)! Every few months, no matter the season, I buy a new pair of jeans, but I was missing the cargo style army green trousers!
First comes the dresses, and then comes the travel! LOL! At least that’s how my mind works. If you buy the dress, the destination will come! Each summer we all plan our wardrobe depending on where we will be going. Well, I know I do! Heading to the beach? You will be looking for something lightweight and breathable. Touring a new city? I always want something chic and comfy (and preferably with pockets)! Headed to a gorgeous island? You probably want something bold and bright with patterns! So where do you find all of these fab looks? ! Banana Republic!
Summer scents are the best scents! If you are anything like me, you have a few perfumes you wear during the summer months. I personally like a fresh floral scent or something that is light and can be layered with other perfumes. If you are looking for that perfect summer scent, here are some of my personal favorites!
TGIF- thank goodness it’s Friday! I’m running some last minute errands today to get ready for…guess where I am off to tonight!?? Ahhhhhh I am going on a Celebrity cruise to Europe! My bags are packed, the kids are taken care of (Josh, good luck and stick to the schedule and planning that took me a week to sort out) lol. I can’t wait to give you all the details of this epic voyage with Sasha! Follow my IG stories for the next week! If you haven’t been on a cruise yet, I am going to convince you to try one! I have traveled all over the world and I have found that being an a luxury “hotel/resort” on the water is the best way to go! Bon Voyage! Celebrity Edge here we come!
In one of my previous posts, I wrote about my latest linen look from Bloomingdales. Well, I was so impressed by the quality of my skirt and cami from Eileen Fisher that I decided to go back for more! I was eyeballing this cute organic linen jumpsuit last time I was there but didn’t have time to try it on (I was running late to my ladies lunch at Forty Carrots). Anyway, I had been thinking about it all week long and decided it would be an ideal look for summer, especially when paired with a simple yet perfect pair of white sneakers.
Looking for easy summer makeup!? Haven’t been out in the sun yet or more like the sun hasn’t been out yet? lol Well it hasn’t really shown itself on the east coast anyway! Never fear, I have a great makeup solution for getting that perfect summer glow without actually being in the sun. Bronzer is back and we are using it as blush! It’s no longer just for contouring, now it’s being used to give you sun-kissed skin. It’s easy to apply and looks super natural. Give yourself a summer glow with a few swipes of bronzer on the apples of your cheek. Follow it up with a natural gloss and a fab mascara. Summer makeup should be natural, easy and effortless! Now go get that glow girl! Sun kissed skin is always in! Here are some of my favorite bronzers:
My new favorite lunch place is called Chloe in the Seaport! When the weather is nice, it’s the perfect place to sit outside and look at the water while enjoying a delicious meal! The weather has been so wacky lately…it was 40 degrees and freezing on Monday, now it’s in the high 60’s and muggy. So, I have found that the safest clothing option is to wear a jean, mule and blazer. You can’t go wrong with this outfit but definitely jazz it up with pink, pink, pink!
