Link Love

-My knotted bow slides (seen here and here) are back in stock in all sizes! I think I'm going to get the blush color, too.

-I'm loving the graphic tee trend and just ordered this one. Plus, everything on the site is 50% off right now!

-I had to get the white version of this blazer after picking up the gray pinstripe one a few weeks ago. The cut and fit are amazing!

-The waterfall trench is one of my favorite pieces for spring and I can't wait for this one to arrive. I'll be styling it soon so keep an eye out!

-If you're looking for more of a traditional trench coat but still want interesting details, this one is perfect. I actually like it even more in the green!

-Just added this off the shoulder top to my cart. The black and blush combo is absolutely gorg!

-This belt is a great way to get the designer look for less. So cute and only $7!

-I've had my eye on this camo jacket for a while now and I'm getting closer to taking the plunge. It's definitely a little trendy but a fun way to mix up layering for this transitional period. They have tons of other colors, too!

-Round sunnies are here to stay and I'm thinking of finally getting these. They're classic!

-How cute is this blush crossbody bag? So perfect for spring and summer.

Ruffle sleeves


I'm really feeling the whole statement sleeve situation right now, so I couldn't pass up this top when I spotted it on a lunch trip to H&M a few weeks back. I actually went to make a return and hadn't planned on buying anything...but you can obviously see how that turned out ;)

First, I fell in love with the material. It's more like a sweatshirt than a blouse, which you know I'm into. And even though I'm sure my husband could find a Chiquita banana joke in here somewhere, I absolutely love how dramatic the sleeves are. I've been on the hunt for something similar so I didn't even hesitate. And with so many other fun details like ties and bell sleeves that are trending, I definitely plan on picking up more...though maybe with a little less flair haha...so you'll be seeing them a lot in the warm weather months.

Happy Thursday, loves!

Top 5 neutral lip products

There was a time (when I first started blogging) that I experimented with bright shades of lipstick. "Schiap" by NARS was having a moment and I went through a phase where I bought every variation of red. There's nothing wrong with trying trends, but looking back on old photos sometimes makes me cringe. I guess that's the beauty of blogging, in a way, because it allows you to reflect on your style, how you've evolved and being able to see what worked and what didn't.

Colors from left to right: Totally, Bare Blush, Fortune Cookie, Blankety, Pearl Rose

For me, it's proof that I'm just not a bright lip kinda girl. There's a reason I gravitate towards neutral shades and I think at a certain age you just get comfortable with yourself and what you truly love. For me, it's a nude lip. Or at least some version of one. I think we can all thank Kylie for bringing the 90s shades back, so if I want to go crazy I'll go for something a bit more matte and brown ;), but for the most part a good neutral gloss or lipstick is my go-to for everything from my 9-5 to black tie. And while I have more than I can count, I wanted to share five of my absolute favorites.

1. Totally -- This is truly the perfect nude gloss. It's very close to my lip color and it usually what I put on the morning when I'm getting ready.

2. Bare Blush -- I bought this in the fall because it's a little more mauve/brown, but still very subtle. Laura Mercier is my favorite gloss brand at the moment, and I also have/love Bare Naked and Baby Doll.

3. Fortune Cookie -- If you're looking for something that gives your lips a true nude look, this is it. I'll often use this if I do a heavy smokey eye. And, it's only $5!

4. Blankety -- I don't wear lipstick on a daily basis, but when I do this is a favorite. Matte lipsticks tend to dry me out but this one has a bit of moisture and shine to it, though definitely not on the level of a gloss. Depending on the look I'm going for, I might layer one of my glosses over it.

5. Pearl Rose -- I've become obsessed with Aveda's products and this gloss is amazing. It's more pink than nude and has a bit of shimmer, but I absolutely love how it looks on. It has mint in it so it's naturally cooling and plumping.

I'm always looking to expand my collection, so if you have a favorite please share!
