I had a question come in from a reader this week and I wanted to share. She asked for a recommendation for a comfy sneaker/slip on shoe that she could wear walking to class. Something that would be cute and practical and also pair well with jeans/leggings and a sweater/cardigan. These are the picks that I shared:
It has been beyond cold here! And I know we aren’t the only place feeling the pain of this weather lately but it makes it so hard to leave the house haha. On top of that, Ethan and I both have a bad cold so the fact that we even ventured out on Saturday for coffee was a plus. (We spent the rest of the day inside and miserable haha.) I clearly should have worn my Uggs because it actually hurt to have any bare skin out. Hence, why a couple of our pics were taken inside the Daily Roastery and our street shots were snapped in a total of 30 seconds, maybe. However, when I went to link my sneaks for you all in this post, I noticed that they are on sale now. So, yay for you all–I am glad I decided to throw them on afterall! [runs tts, wearing a 7.5]
Since it has been so frigid, moisturizers are 10x more important. You all know how annoying dry skin can be and I feel like I have been on the search for some good products for YEARS now (I am super, super picky and get grossed out easily by textures, containers, etc). I recently found a few that I love so I wanted to be sure to share with you all. Give these a try if you’re on the hunt!
I saw Jacey from Damsel in Dior post this product on her IG story a while back and decided to give it a try when I was browsing at the drug store one day. I have to tell you, I was really skeptical. But–the results made me a true fan. I think it makes my skin so much softer throughout the day. I found myself thinking oh my skin is softer than normal and then I realized it was on days when I used this product. It’s crazy how it locks in the moisture.
First Aid Beauty sent me some products a while back to try and this was the first one I gave a go. I fell in LOVE. I have since repurchased it several times with zero regrets. The texture is silky so it does not irk me. Bonus! And the best part about this is that you can use it all over. I like for your body if you are feeling really dry and I like it for the face as a night time moisturizer. I use Retin-A a couple nights a week and when I do I mix it with this before I put it on. It’s a dream product.
I go to Simply Blue Salon here in Lexingon and my hair stylist, Rosa suggested this Aveda product. Since I am always looking for something great to put on my lips, I gave it a try. I am liking it to wear to bed right now. Since Ethan likes to have the fan on, I will get chapped lips if I don’t put something on. && this seems to be helping!
I looked for a new daily moisturizer for my face for sooooo long. When I was at Sephora grabbing some of my other FAB product refills I decided to give this one a try too. LOVE! Thank gosh I found this one. It is perfect for me to apply after washing my face in the mornings and before I apply my make up.
&& I can’t leave you all without discussing this fab coat. I just got it in the mail on Friday. I have a long black down coat that is packable from Bernardo that I truly adore. I bought it last Winter and it has come in SO handy. When the Bernardo team reached out and offered me one of their new styles I knew I wanted to jump on it. I have fallen hard for this brand–the quality is 100% and I think the styles are spot on for casual coats. I love how this one is a shorter style and has silver hardware on it. It will for sure be on repeat! [runs tts, wearing an xs]
Lastly, but certainly not least.. let’s take a second to chat about this new bag that I have been RAVING about in IG. How great is the gunmetal hardware mixed with the neutral leather? It’s a great size, has both an outside and inside pocket and is currently on sale! && this is just a little random side note, but the turn knobs are attached–if you rotate one to open the bag the other one automatically follows suit too so you don’t have to take the time to do both before grabbing your wallet or chapstick out. Genius, right? You can find a couple other colors available here too.
I hope you all are staying warm and healthy this weekend! I, for one, am keeping my fingers crossed that I recover enough to have a glass of wine soon! Priorities, right??
If I am being 100% honest, my favorite leggings are the wonder under style from lululemon. I have them in the crop and the 7/8, they’re that good. HOWEVER, these Zella leggings are definitely my 2nd faves. They have so many good qualities!
super high waisted–very flattering and perfect for crop tops too
excellent material–they are thick (so you can’t see through them) but breathable
durable–I wash and dry mine a couple of times each week (it’s nice to not have to hang them to dry, I just throw mine in the dryer!)
they run tts–I am wearing an xs
they’re versatile–I wear mine to actually workout but I also feel like they are a pair that can be worn to run errands or with tall boots and sweaters in the fall/winter
If you live in leggings like I do then give these a try! They are on sale for only today & tomorrow! fyi, they are long on me so I fold the bottom up.
Ok, time for a little fun in the sun at the lake. We’re in the car headed that way now–which is why I have to wrap this up before we hit the curvy roads haha! Hope you all are having a great weekend!
I have been FULLY on board with the athleisure trend for a long time now but over the past few months I have fallen completely in love with sweatshirts! They are so darn comfortable and easy to wear–always have been though. However, now there are just really cute options. For that reason I always find one in my cart, ha. My latest purchase? This adidas number. I LOVE the black on black. So chic right? And the detailing on the sleeves and hem? Everything. What surpised me though was the material. It feels so good. [wearing an xs]
I wore outfit on Saturday when we went out to grab some lunch. We ended up running into a bunch of Ethan’s friends so we stayed and watched the UK game with them and then came home, grabbed the animals and headed straight down to my Dad’s lake house. We had my sister and her friends over the night before to celebrate her 21st birthday (snacks, drinks, loads of cute balloons && fun props for a photo booth included!) so a night in being lazy and ordering pizza sounded so perfect.
I hope you all had some lounge time this weekend as well! We have some busy (but super fun) weekends coming up so I was super thankful that this one was relaxing!
ps–as I was writing this post I stumbled across these sunglasses in gold. I have (and love) the black already and I’ve have been waititng for the other colors to come back in stock forever so I immedately bought a pair. I highly suggest you snag some for Spring & Summer!
pss–be sure to check out the new goodies that I’ve bought recently here if you haven’t already!
I wore this look to dinner this past Saturday and I loved it so much that I put it back on on Sunday and we shot it so I could share with you all! We went to our favorite pizza place to split a capicoal, cherry tomato & goat cheese pizza and have a sour beer and this look was perfect.
First off, I can’t say enough great things about this faux leather jacket you all! I got mine during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this past summer and I have actually worn it lots & lots since. It’s the perfect piece for layering. The quality is SO good for the price point–you’d never know it was under $100 if you saw it in person. And the best news is that now it’s on sale too! Sizes will go fast so don’t wait to snag one! FYI, there are also 3 other color options. [wearing an xs]
I know this sweatshirt is not appropriate for every event—but how cute? “This wine is making me awesome”?! I couldn’t resist. (Even though when I pulled it out of the box Ethan just looked at me and said …really??? with an eye roll haha!) [wearing an xs/s]
Are you all as obsessed with the choker trend as I am? I wear mine all. the. time. This one is under $5. Seriously! It’s turned out to be such a good buy. I got mine in the summer but the exact one is still available! I should probably order a silver one actually… I also just ordered this satin one in the mauve color.
If you order these jeans then remember to size up! They are my new go-to but they definitely run small! [wearing a 26×30]
Ok, now back to Vanderpump Rules. Are you all hooked on Summer House? How sneaky/smart was it of Bravo to just transition right into that new show on the Montauk episode? Just another reality show (full of subsistence, haha) to add to my DVR list!
