Sunshine + Cut Offs

Ready for Sunshine
Swimsuit {25% off with code LIGHTENUP} | White Shirt {25% off with code LIGHTENUP} | Dior Gloss | Distressed Denim | White Sandals {also just bought these and looove them} | Rope Bracelet | Sunscreen | Sunglasses | Straw Fedora | Beach Tote  {also love this}

I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for sunshine and cut off shorts!  I always look forward to the change in season, but especially when it's time for Spring to roll around.  As much as I love layers and fall fashion, I love the simplicity of warm weather even more.  I'm already shopping for a few staple pieces to fill my closet with for the months ahead and loving every single piece of today's collage.  I've already hit the "checkout" button on a few of these little pretties and can't wait until I can actually wear them!!  Cheers to having our toes in the sand and a drink in our hand very soon! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.

Working Out in Pink

 Pants: Devon Maryn c/o | Top: Lululemon | Shoes: Puma

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  You may have noticed {via instagram} that the hubs and I enjoyed a little weekend getaway the last couple of days.  There's nothing I love more than exploring a city, new or visited, and finding quaint, little coffee shops, new restaurants and some of my favorite places to shop.  In my opinion, there's something to healthy and rejuvenating about getting out of town.  Sometimes a little escape is all you need to hit the reset button and keep on keepin' on!  Especially when you can do it with the ones you love most.  #lifeissogood

Anyways, as much as I love my vanilla lattes and strawberry macarons, I also realize how important a healthy lifestyle is.  I make an intentional effort every day to eat right and exercise, even though I don't always live up to that intention.  It may sound silly, but I am motivated to exercise for a few different reasons- 1: My sweet pups need to live active, healthy lives, 2: Workout wear is super cute and fun to shop for and 3: I sometimes usually reward myself in the end.  Hey, even if that reward is a green juice, it has to happen!  It's so much harder to have the drive and motivation to be healthy when it's freezing cold and gloomy outside (trust me, that's caught up with me this season), but always worth it in the end.  The older I get, the more importance I see in taking care of your body and eating well.  And if you're like me and cute activewear helps you accomplish that, I say buy the leggings every single time! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Knits + Stripes

Cardigan: Chicwish c/o | Dress: Shop Julianas c/o | Tights: Commando | Booties: ASH {obsessed} | Crossbody: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Prada | Necklace: Baublebar c/o | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o | Rings: David Yurman + Gorjana c/o | Lips: Bobbi Brown 'Petal'

A stripe dress is such a classic, closet staple.  I love how this specific one can transition through the seasons.  It's short sleeve, so it's great to belt and through on with heels in the warmer months, or bundle up with a long cardi and tights like I did.  Versatility is huge for my wardrobe, especially for closet staples like cotton dresses.  You can't go wrong with a simple black + white look!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Blush + Neutrals

Untitled #36

As if I needed to add even more blush + cream to my closet, but these beauties are worth the splurge! I'm loving this dress for a Spring garden party or shower and this light-weight sweater is perfect for dressing up a pair of distressed denim.  And these accessories, whew, I can't even deal.  So chic, so beautiful.  From the handbag to the lipstick, I need each and every one of these items for Spring!

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.

Pink Champagne

 
 
 Top: Joie {sadly just sold out, but loving this + this} | Jeans: J Brand | Crossbody: Rebecca Minkoff | Shoes: Valentino | Watch: Michele c/o | Bracelet: David Yurman | Sunglasses: Ray Ban c/o | Rings: David Yurman + Gorjana c/o | Earrings: Pink Peonies Collection | Lips: Bobbie Brown 'Petal' + YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #7

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  It's been so cold and rainy here lately (+ a little snow last week, too) so I was so excited when it actually got up to 50 degrees on Saturday!  After being in NYC where it was 9 degrees, I'll take what I can get here in SC!
I fell in love with this Joie top the moment I saw it.  I initially clicked on it because of the color combination, but once I saw the actual color of the top was called 'Pink Champagne' I was completely sold.  I've been a big fan of Joie for quite some time and love everything about their Spring collection.  A blouse + skinny jeans combo is such an easy outfit to throw on and go, but can easily be dressed up or down, which I love.  

As always, thanks so much for stopping by, x.

Bare Minerals | Complexion Rescue

Complexion Rescue | Mascara | Eye Shadow Palette (2) | Bronzer | Brush | Well Rested | Perfume | Lipstick c/o Bare Minerals

Happy Friday, loves!  We finally made it to the weekend, so first off - cheers to that! {pop, fizz, clink}
Secondly, if you haven't tried this new product, Complexion Rescue by Bare Minerals, you HAVE to, have to try it!!  I don't usually get too excited about beauty products, nor do I claim to be a super talented beauty blogger, but this stuff is seriously amazing.  I love a good tinted moisturizer, simply to have around the house for lazy days when you don't feel like putting on your entire face of make up.  Especially while running errands, going to the gym or during the warmer months when you can get by with less coverage because your skin is already glowing.  But, this product is so much more than just a tinted moisturizer.  It feels so amazing on, super light weight and has a really great medium coverage.  Right now (while I'm super pale with no tan #fail), I'm wearing it under my normal foundation and I love the way it makes my skin glow.  It gives you just enough of a dewy look, without looking overly oily.  I have to admit, I'd never actually tried Bare Minerals until recently (with CR being my first) and I have fallen in love with the line.  All of the products I linked above have quickly made their way into my duly routine and I couldn't be happier about it!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  I wanted to say a quick thank you for all of your sweet comments about NYC.  Like I mentioned in Monday's post, I was a little hesitant to attend, simply because I never want to be that superficial person that tries to be someone she's not.  I always want to make sure my blog is a genuine reflection of my personality + style and any little bit of success I've come across is completely and totally because of you guys.  While continuing to take steps forward in growing For All Things Lovely and attending events such as NYFW, I can't tell you how much your support and encouraging words mean.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading + following each and every day.  You'll never know how much it means to me! xoxo.
