For April, beauty was all about ease. As I mentioned earlier this week, I needed simple and few products during my days spent traveling and hiking this past month in Utah. I didn’t want to pack a ton of makeup and skincare products for my trip, so that meant keeping things simple with the above products. If you’re looking to start transitioning your routine from cold weather to warm weather, I’d recommend one of these (especially this foaming cleanser — amazing!).
This week flew by … and yet it felt like I didn’t get done half of what’s on my to-do list. But this weekend, I’m reorganizing my office and bits and pieces of my bedroom. Nothing like a little home decor/organization project to get me excited for a few days off!
I am determined to be content with what I have in my closet because I am the worst about feeling like I have nothing to wear, despite a very full closet. Sometimes I feel a lot of pressure to have new things to wear or trends to take part in because of being a personal-style blogger. This summer, I’m going to learn to be happy with what I already have. Here’s the breakdown:
Blouse: Banana Republic via Goodwill
Shorts: Charlotte Russe (similar here and here)
Flats: Lands’ End (similar here)
Sunnies: Forever 21
Clutch: Brahmin (c/o)
Rings: Kenneth Jay Lane via Giveaway/Charming Charlie
Lips: Maybelline’s Parisian Pink
The details are what make this outfit for me. The sweet, feminine touches, like lace shorts, polka dots and a bow in my hair (which I didn’t get a picture of), all lend themselves to give off a girly vibe but in a subtle way. These shorts were another closet hidden treasure I forgot about. Clearly I need to dig deeper into my closet and find other items I’ve forgotten about, all in the name of my quest of contentment with my closet.
Also, congratulations to Alex of Delayed Missives! She’s the winner of the nautical bracelet giveaway. Alex, I’ll be emailing you to get your mailing address.
My time here in Little Rock is quickly coming to an end, which is hard to believe. Who knew eight weeks would fly by? I’ve certainly gained a complete appreciation for air conditioning and fans, and I’ve definitely become a big believer in staying cool in skirts and dresses. Here’s the breakdown:
Tee: Saver’s (Old Navy)
Shorts: TJ Maxx (American Eagle)
Sandals: Dolce Vita for Target
Bag: Banana Republic
Sunnies: Forever 21
Lipstick: Coral Crush by Maybelline
Bracelets/Watch: Garage sale/Dillard’s/TJ Maxx
Stripes and easy shorts have become weekend staples for me. I definitely gravitate toward the casual on the weekends, particularly because they’re my only chance to wear shorts (at least during my internship). After seeing so many other bloggers wearing Maybelline’s Coral Crush lip color, I decided to take the dive and try it out. For $5, it’s definitely worth a try, and I’m surprised with how well it looks on so many skin tones. Paired with my simple breton striped tee and khaki shorts, my new lip color really topped off my weekend uniform.
