Summer Reds

IMG_7835

Too long of a break, I know. I still have great plans and ideas in the making, but finally am back to blogging!

IMG_7880I wanted to share an outfit of the day with a beautiful floral printed summer top from Rebecca Taylor. I was not a fan of red until this summer, and would never want to have a red and blue mix print until I fell in love with this top! The detail of the mixed metallic silk and tie-sleeve detailing is gorgeous.

I paired the top with white skinny jeans from AG jeans and folded them to show off my sandals. The sandals are light and dark blue lace up leather sandal from Joie.

EASY HOW TO: NYX Wonder Stick- Cream Contour + Highlighting

I promised you all a step by step tutorial on the NYX Wonder Stick (Shade: Universal) from a previous post on the “Hit or Miss.” I believe this handy product is a HIT! It is very easy to use, especially to accomplished a contour look on-the-go! This tool is easy for first starting out in contouring, not to thick and easy to blend. Here is a breakdown of how to use the Wonder Stick!nyx tutorial step 1

– Apply after you put on your favorite primer and a light layer of  foundation for a great base! I used my NYX angel veil and my MAC studio fix as a base.

– When blending the cheekbones blend upwards, to life the cheekbones.

step two nyx tutorial– For the highlight end, since it is a shimmer highlight, apply right at the top of the cheekbones to almost the temple for a natural glow.

step 3:finished look– To complete the look just make sure you set everything with powder, and waalaaaahhhh easy cream contour made from the Wonder Stick by NYX!

Spring Transitions! Long Cardigan | OOTD ♡

♡I think the best way to transition into spring this season, is with coverups and cardigans. Depending on your climate your cardigan can range in thickness, mine is just a very sheerIMG_3639 long one.

I found it at TjMaxx for like $5! When at other store/boutiques they are around $30 or more!This great find can work in a variety of styles. This cardiganIMG_3634 would look with leggings/jeans and some cute boots, for a colder spring time outfit. Also with a dress or skirt will add that “WOW” into an outfit.   (more…)
