Chevron Mix

Theory Blazer, Ohne Titel Top & Skirt, Proenza Schouler Heels (similar less expensive version), Balenciaga Bag, Bobbi Brown Lipgloss in “Petal”

Another day, another crop top! Matching sets are my favorite thing to wear right now and I especially love this Ohne Titel one because both the skirt and top are reversible so you can switch them up. While I love them paired together, I’ve also worn the skirt with other blouses and tees in my closet and vise versa with the top. So if you’re contemplating about getting a matching set and think you won’t wear it enough, think again ;)

Here are a few other matching sets I’m loving…

Studs & Leopard

Rachel Zoe Top, Old Navy Sweater (old, similar here and here), Rag & Bone Shorts (old, similar here and less expensive version here), Sam Edelman Sneakers, Stella McCartney Bag, Preston & Olivia Hat c/o, Illesteva Sunglasses

I’m all for crop tops, but only when paired with the right pieces. I usually wear mine with a high waisted skirt or shorts, but this slightly longer version allows me to wear it with my regular waisted bottoms like these Rag & Bone shorts. It shows just the right amount of skin that I’m comfortable with and is great for this 75 degree weather we’ve been having. I just make sure to have a cozy knit to throw on once the wind picks up!

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.
