100% Pure


Today’s look has a fresh spring feel to compliment my newest makeup obsessions from 100% Pure Cosmetics. I started my look off with their Naked II Pallette mixing pretty pinks and warm browns for a spring eye that’s perfect for daytime and easily transitions to night with the addition of some eyeliner.

Your bathing suit isn’t just for splashing around in

Swim suits are great. But honestly, We fall in love with those one-of-a-kind, expensive ones and get sad when they’re worn only a few times in the summer months. So, we had a revelation. Why? They’re so pretty they deserve more than just being shown off pool side for a couple hours. The alternative to this dilemma? With a little subtraction here and addition there, we’ve created 4 outfits using swimwear as oh so much more than just that.

Pineapple Paradise

20140611-223835-81515647.jpg

I love the mixed prints trend; it’s safe to say its something that will be in the fashion world for eternity. Why? It takes an outfit from easy to exceptional in no time. And with internet inspiration and trial and error within your own closet, it’s something that everyone can pull off. So I got creative with my 7$ skirt from H&M, added some pineapple paradise and voila!

In a French Ass Restaurant

IMG_1295

This cool day in paris, we found ourselves eating baguettes and various varieties of French cheeses in a park, vintage shopping in a fashion-forward part of the city, and seeing the exact spot where John Galliano nearly destroyed his career. No doubt he’ll be back. Vintage stores filled me with happiness as I purchased a scorpion pin (which was later lost in paris during a night out in a bar resembling a cave) and a pair of bee earrings. Neither of which I think are vintage, but they still caught my eye and made their way into my jewelry collection. I felt as Parisian as I ever will and pretty much fully submerged in that crazy world of fashion that I love beyond words or descriptions.

The Art of the Legging

Wearing leggings while not attending a yoga class is somewhat of an art. Leggings aren’t pants. Plain and simple. But sometimes we’re deceived by pretty floral and animal prints and we just want to treat out leggings like pants. The key to making leggings work outside of the gym? Longer and looser tops that cover your you know what. Let the pretty prints take you away and pair your leggings with some tops like that seen in these photos or a grandpa sweater or both!

Plaid Perfection

I’m not really big on sweat pants, especially when in public. If you’re hitting up the gym or going for a walk, then I get it. I get you wearing them to class because you’re going to the gym or just came from the gym. And since I really, really dislike the gym, I own like zero pairs of sweatpants. But I totally get comfort. It’s important. Sometimes you just want a lazy Saturday afternoon outfit. So when I saw these plaid pants on Nasty Gal, I had to get them! They encompass the best if two worlds: fashion and comfort. The print is in trend, the leather waistband is awesome, and the knit feel of the fabric might be the softest thing ever. I’m obsessed.
