Bloom

Madewell Tee (also available in black), French Connection Skirt, Marni Belt, Celine Bag, Proenza Schouler Heels

This skirt reminds me of a water color painting and I love how the soft tulle blows in the wind. Similar to yesterday’s look, I just love mixing dressier feminine pieces with super casual ones. This “Paris” tee seems to go with everything (seen last here) and I’m starting to grow quite the graphic tee collection. On another note, I’m off to Dallas this morning and will be there through the weekend. Any suggestions of can’t miss spots?

I’m also really excited to announce that I’ll be heading to Venice, Italy with Epitymas for the 71st Venice Film Festival this year! You can head to their site to request an invite and after registering, you’ll be in the drawing the win a pair of Louboutins! I’ll have much more on that adventure coming soon :)

Killin It

Brandy Melville Sweatshirt, TopShop Skirt, Aritzia Denim Shirt (old, similar here), Nike Sneakers, Stella McCartney Bag, Lookmatic Sunglasses c/o (I’m wearing the “Marlowe”)

I always love a good graphic tee or sweatshirt and couldn’t pass up this fun one from Brandy Melville. While I’ve worn it with my ripped up denim, I like it even better with a feminine skirt (like this white TopShop scalloped one). I can feel pretty tomboyish in my sneakers and sweatshirt, so it’s nice to still have a sweet touch to my look.

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

Makeup Essentials

Sonia Kashuk Makeup BagTopShop Kohl Liner, TopShop Magic Liner, bareMinerals Original Foundation (I wear medium beige), bareMinerals Bareskin Foundation, Stroke of Light in Luminous 2, YSL Kiss & Blush in “Orange Fougueux” and “Rose Libre”, bareMinerals Bronzer in “The Skinny Dip”, Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in “Desirable” and “Impassioned”, bareMinerals Lash Domination, bareMinerals Eyeshadow Palette in “The Power Neutrals”, Essie Nail Polish in “Resort Fling” and “Meet Me At Sunset”, bareMinerals Moxie in “Life of the Party”, “High Roller” and “Miss Popular”

A few essentials currently on rotate in my beauty routine. I’ve talked about my new found love for YSL’s “Kiss & Blush” here- it’s really the best to add just the right about of color and liveliness to your face. I keep the rest of my basics pretty simple, with neutral palettes and a subtle bronzer. Three of my absolute favorite products are bareMineral’s Lash Domination, Stroke of Light and Original Foundation. While I’ve been using the Original Foundation in medium/beige for years, I’ve recently tried out their new liquid foundation and I love it! It makes your skin look flawless and velvety soft. It gives a more dewy complexion than the original powder and feels like you have nothing on! I also think I have almost every Moxie lipgloss color (I’m addicted!), but these are my three favorite shades for spring.

P.S. Head on over here to see who won the Nordstrom $1000 gift card and two $500 gift cards!
