Kiss & Blush

YSL ‘Babydoll’ Kiss & Blush in “Orange Fougueux” and “Rose Libre”, Wearing Urban Outfitters Sweater (old, similar here)

With each season, I add a few new beauty products to my routine to freshen up my look. In the warmer months, I try to keep things minimal but still want some color to add life to my face. I absolutely love the new YSL ‘Babydoll’ Kiss & Blush (exclusive to Nordstrom)- a product you can use on both your cheeks and lips. I tried out all of the colors and picked my two favorites for my complexion, “orange fougueau” and “rose libre”.  Both colors are so different from my usual bronzer (in warmth) and add just the right amount of color. I was a little hesitant at first about using the same color on both my lips and cheeks, but they end up complementing each other perfectly.

Other makeup worn: YSL Radiant Touch, bareMinerals Original Foundation, bareMinerals Lash Domination, NARS Eyeliner in “Via Appia”

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

Floral Romper

Nasty Gal Romper, DVF Wedges, Fendi Bag, Anthropologie Belt (old, similar here), Preston & Olivia Hat c/o

I’ve had this floral romper on my wish list for a while and finally decided that for under $60, it was just too good to pass up. I was going to save it for an upcoming Cabo trip, but the beautiful 80 degree weather in Sonoma this past weekend was just perfect for it. From the sweet ruffled edges to floral print to the soft peach shade, it’s everything I look for in a spring outfit. While it pairs perfectly for wine country, I know it’ll look just as good over a bikini on the beach!

The Basics

French Connection Blazer, Current Elliott Tee c/o The Dreslyn, J Brand Jeans c/o The Dreslyn, Vince Mules, Saint Laurent Bag, Janessa Leone Hat, NARS “Heat Wave” Lipstick

I’m kickstarting the weekend with my favorite causal Friday look- skinny jeans and a comfy tee. I picked up these high waisted J Brand jeans from The Dreslyn and I can’t seem to take them off. They perfectly mold to your body in the best way possible and look great with a silky cami and strappy heels as they do with a tee and flats. If you’re not familiar with The Dreslyn, it’s a favorite destination of mine for beautiful, classic basics (so much white, black and grey) and wardrobe staples. I’m also loving this J Brand blouse or this Helmut Lang asymmetric wrap skirt, but you can shop more of my favorite pieces here…

A big thank you to The Dreslyn for sponsoring this post.
