Boho Lace

Necklace: Ashley Schenkein (50% off w/code GLOBAL50) / Dress: Dolce Vita (love this one too!)
Sweater: Anthropologie / Boots: Frye / Handbag: Frye

If there was one outfit that I felt like represented my style the best, I would say this is it. I love clothes that feel effortless, feminine and have a touch of a boho vibe. I'm always a sucker for a lacey dress, crochet sweater, and gorgeous artisan jewelry. Add a braid in my hair, and I'm ready to take on the day. XO.

Speaking of gorgeous artisan jewelry, may I draw your attention to the lovely creations of Ashley Schenkein. The turquoise necklace I'm wearing is a piece from her collection, and I must admit I'm completely smitten by it. And, lucky you, Ashley Schenkein has a wonderful treat for you all! She's offering 50% today and tomorrow with code GLOBAL50. Check out her lovely jewelry HERE.

Classic With A Twist

Blouse: similar here and here / Skirt: JCrew / Jacket: similar on sale! / Shoes: Schutz on sale! / Handbag: Loeffler Randall (also here)

I love the simplicity of wearing black, white and grey. It's classic and timeless. Adding a splash of a fun color is an easy way to add a touch of color and avoiding being too matchy-matchy.

I hope you're having a beautiful day. XO.

To The Max

Dress: Parker / Jacket: Free People / Scarf: Nepali by TDM c/o / Shoes: similar / Lips: MAC Lipglass 'Russian Red' / Handbag: Chloe

I love a printed maxi dress. Nothing is more comfortable, effortless and easy. And yet, somehow a maxi dress still feels pulled together and pretty. Just add a scarf and jean jacket and your all set for a chilly winter day.

Beauty Favorites: Spring 2014


1. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation / Love this foundation! It gives a natural coverage, and at the same time it conceals imperfections and gives my skin a healthy glow.
2. TRISH MCEVOY Correct & Luminze Kit / This two part kit makes the under-eye area bright, refreshed and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
3. JO MALONE 'Orange Blossom' Cologne / I've mentioned my love for this perfume before, but I must mention it again. This light floral scent is scrumptious.
4. ESTEE LAUDER Bronze Goddess / This bronzer is lovely. I apply a bit to my forehead, nose and cheekbones and it gives me a natural, healthy glow.
5. MAC 'Naked Lunch' Eye Shadow / MAC is known for making wonderful eyeshadows with amazing pigment and staying power, and this shadow is no exception. The Naked Lunch color is natural and pretty. It has a soft shimmer that makes the eyes pop, while still being very subtle. For an everyday look, I wear this alone. But it's also a wonderful color to use as a base for more dramatic evening looks. It's truly a must-have shadow.
6. BENEFIT 'They're Real' Mascara / No "best beauty product list" would be complete without this mascara. This mascara is the best. It makes lashes look long, full and never clumpy. It's dramatic and amazing. 
7. EYEKO Eye Gel / This is a wonderful tinted brow gel that makes my brows look perfectly polished.
8. DOIR 'Capture Totale' DreamSkin Serum / This product is a miracle in a bottle. It works as a serum to even out skin's texture and diminishes wrinkles. But also it works as a primer to make your foundation go on amazingly smooth and flawless. This product makes my skin feel dreamy and it looks radiant and youthful. Seriously... this product is a dream!  
9. SUNDAY RILEY Skin Adrenaline Anti-Aging Gel Cream / I love Sunday Riley's line of skincare products and I've tried many of them, but this one is my favorite. It smells heavenly, and more importantly it works wonderfully. It's lightweight, yet super hydrating and it never irritates my skin. I use this as a day cream and also at night and I'm so pleased with the benefits I've seen in my skin.
10. FRESH Soy Face Cleanser / All natural and super gentle, this cleanser is tried and true in my beauty routine. Works wonders when used with a Clarisonic Cleansing System.
11. YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lip Gloss / To say that I'm obsessed with this lip gloss, would be an understatement. This lip product is beyond fabulous! It combines the texture and shine of a lip gloss with the long wear of a lip stain. It's the only lip product I've ever tried that actually stays on your lips... for hours and looks amazing too!
12. NARS 'Orgasm' Blush / A light sweep of this blush and I look bright, healthy and refreshed. The color is the perfect peachy-pink and has just a touch of shimmer.

I'd love to hear some of your must-have beauty products too!  XO.

Twist of Mint

Jacket: old (similar) / Blouse: Rebecca Taylor / Jeans: DL1961 / Handbag: Loeffler Randall (also here & here) / Shoes: Schutz on sale!
Necklace: Heather Hawkins (love this one!) / Lipstick: YSL Rouge Pur Couture #24

Mint has always been one of my favorite colors. The moment I see the first glimpses of spring outside, I start wanting to wear pastels, and especially mint. It's so easy to add a touch of mint to an outfit, and immediately feel springy. I realize that we still have a month left of Winter, but I'm already dreaming of Spring. XO.

Surplus

Dress: Tildon / Jacket: old; similar here and here / Handbag: Frye / Boots: Frye 
Love Necklace: Sydney Evan (love this one too) / Feather Necklace: Heather Gardner c/o

Monday morning is no time to be fussy with one's outfit. Monday's are always a bit hectic in my house, so I like to keep my outfits as effortless as possible. Nothing is easier than grabbing my surplus jacket and some chunky boots. I love combining rugged pieces with soft, feminine pieces, like this flowy dress. I feel ready for wherever this Monday takes me.  XO.

Blue Valentine

Dress: Rebecca Taylor / Sweater: Lucky Brand / Shoes: Tieks by Gavrieli c/o
Clutch: GAP / Necklace: London Manori c/o / Rings: similar

Happy Valentine's Day my loves. I thought I'd get a little wild today and instead of wearing pink and red and cover myself with hearts, I went for a more subtle approach to the "day of love". Cobalt blue with pops of pink and turquoise. I feel feminine and sweet, even if I'm not covered in hearts. I have a lunch date with my kids today at their school. The school is ordering pizzas for all the students and parents and we are going to sit outside and have a Valentine's Day picnic. I'm so happy that it's warm and sunny out and I get to spend the afternoon with my loves. Tonight I'm planning a quiet dinner at home with my family. I might even light a candle or two, we'll see if the mood strikes. I hope you have a lovely day planned with the one's you love! XO.

p.s. I can't tell you how much I adore my new Tieks. They are hands down the most comfortable shoes on the planet earth. They come in so many amazing colors! These are some of my favorites....
