  2. LOREAL Telescopic Mascara in shade Black brown: a mascara that separates and lengthens your lashes for the ultimate doe-eyed look.
  3. NARS Creme Lipstick in shade Dolce Vita: the perfect soft pink with a slight sheen. Super creamy and sheer for buildable colour.
  4. Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in shade Bad to the Bronze: a super quick, long lasting shadow that can easily be applied with your finger for a sultry, smoldering look.
  5. Maybelline Fit Me foundation stick in 330-toffee caramel: this blendable, buildable, super compact foundation stick is perfect for quick cream contouring and packs extremely well in purses and travel bags.

Warm hues, soft florals and lots of texture fill my mind’s eye this season. Layers of pretty vintage silhouettes paired with suede accessories, working together to create the perfect look for frolicking in Central Park among the red and orange leaves. Coffee stops at the cutest cafes are a must, featuring everything cinnamon and spice of course. I bundle up as I look forward to the chillier air.

Fall, you are welcome here.

The Only Summer Bag You Need.

This is not your mother’s beach bag…

Straw bags are no longer the same tired take-along you used to bring to the beach. This season they’ve come back with a whole new look, and they’re ready to take over your Summer style.

Whether you’re looking for a petite day bag or a spacious tote, this latest must-have comes in a vast array of shapes and sizes, making it easy to incorporate into any look.

Dress it up with a sleek pant and blouse or pair it with a gingham dress for something fresh and flirty. Whatever way you choose to style it, now’s the time to work one of these wicker numbers into your wardobe.

My personal mission for the perfect straw piece has proved second-hand spots to be the ideal place to snag this look. If you’re looking for a quick fix, try some of the links below:

Bloomingdales

I can’t handle the cuteness of some of these little guys (did you see the pom-pom ones!?!) I want them all!

The New Classic with Warby Parker

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“What do you get when you mix acetate and polished metal, put them in a time machine programmed to the year 1955, and refresh them for 2017? These.” – Warby Parker 

This just in: Warby Parker has the latest and greatest in eye wear to share with us, and it includes a trip back to 1955.

Retro silhouettes meet modern materials in this “of the moment” collection freshly launched by the revolutionary eye wear company.

Made for the everyday guy and gal these vintage shades and eye glasses not only come in several instagram worthy styles and colour ways, they won’t leave your wallet feeling empty.  Warby Parker aims to deliver quality glasses without the astronomical pricing, and they’ve done just that.

Looking for some reasons to justify purchasing a few new pairs? Take some inspiration from the looks I curated below with some of my favourites:

Look 1: A pop of cobalt with Addie

How fun is the summery hue of these sunnies? Paired with a muted, monochromatic look these shades are sure to be the center of attention. Throw in a pop of yellow for an added bit of zest. The only thing cooler than this look is the iced mojito you’ll be sipping while you sport it.

Look 2: That’s A Wrap with Eliot

There’s nothing more lovely than a wrap dress for summer! Here, a simple black and white print is rejuvenated with a geometric straw bag, casual everyday sneakers, and of course, vintage-esque specs that make your look a total throwback to the carefree summers of the 50’s. The tortoise shell pattern on these glasses is bold enough to add depth to your look while still being neutral enough to remain versatile. The ideal accessory when looking to spice up a simple, classic look.

Ready to add some 1950’s vibes into your wardrobe?

I’ll see you there.

Warm hues, bleached denim and bold prints take center stage as Summer kicks off, full force. Think sunshine, sunflowers and everything 70’s-esque. Skate shoes and bold makeup add modern twists, while paisleys and vintage accesories keep things rooted in a retro theme. Maybe it’s the warmer weather or maybe it’s the onset of festival season, but something has me nostalgic for a groovier time. Bring on the flared pants and fringe galore.
