If my closet is any indication of what I’m currently into, cobalt blue is going to play a major part in my fall outfits. As I mentioned yesterday on Instagram, I found these amazingly comfortable Target heels over the weekend and couldn’t wait to break them out. I’d highly suggest getting a pair! Not only is the price too good, but there are multiple color options. They were perfect for an afternoon spent downtown, working outside with an iced latte in hand.
In terms of beauty, July was all about long-lasting makeup that could stand up to the heat of the summer. I used most of the above products while doing my friend Keri’s makeup for her wedding (along with the other bridesmaids), and the products all withstood the test of a long day combined with summer sun and humidity.
The Lorac Pro 2 palette has been the one palette I’ve reached for almost every day. And the Milani baked blush in Corallina? A drugstore dupe for NARS blush at a fraction of the price. I also bought the Josie Maran coconut watercolor eyeshadow in Rio de Rose Gold, and it is so pigmented.
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.
