Popcorn Party

 Bowls: Anthropologie + smaller ones here | Tray: Shop City Girl c/o | Cups: Anthropologie

There's nothing better than a girls night in watching scandalous TV + eating popcorn.  Since my best friend, Kayci, has been home, she has completely hooked me on Scandal.  I literally have not done anything else for a week other than watch this show every chance I get.  If you're an avid watcher, you understand my addiction- it is so, so good!  Anyway, I picked up these super cute bowls at Anthro a couple of weeks ago and loved having a great excuse to pull them out.  I have a special place in my heart for entertaining, so in my opinion, you can never have too many fun serving pieces + glasses {obsessed with these}.  Olivia Pope eats popcorn + has a glass or two of wine every night so we thought this little treat seemed fitting.

Stay tuned next week for my favorite cupcakes!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xo.

Jewel Tones

Top: J. Crew | Pants: J. Crew {both on sale + an additional 40%} | Shoes: Valentino | Handbag: Kate Spade {really want this} | Earrings: ILY Couture c/o | Bangles: Reece & Blair c/o | Lips: YSL Sheer Candy #9 | Sunnies: Karen Walker

When I spotted these drawstring pants in J. Crew, I knew I had to have them not only for the stylish, yet comfortable aspect, but also the beautiful, jewel tone color.  I had a hard time deciding what color would pair well, other than typical white, and once I held up blush pink I was sold.  I actually had both of these items in my hand, but didn't initially think to pair them together.  Of course, as most of you know, my love for blush pink makes me think it pairs with almost anything, but this combination is definitely a new favorite that will easily transition right into fall.

Black Out

Black Out

Coat | Top | Jeans | Crossbody | Bralette | Booties | Sunnies | Bracelet | Parfum

With the season change right around the corner + the current Nordy's sale, I'm completely craving fall fashion.  I love layering cozy pieces and bundling up in chic accessories.  I'm totally a summer girl at heart, but there's nothing like a crisp chill in the air + apple cider and apple picking to look forward to!

Traveling in Style with Everlane

 Top: Everlane c/o (xs) | Shorts: Everlane c/o | Sandals: Everlane c/o | Backpack: Everlane c/o
Watch: Michael Kors | Sunnies: Prada | Necklace: Stella & Dot c/o | Lips: YSL 'Lush Coconut'

In my opinion, there's nothing better than a weekend getaway or a much needed vacation.  Both in which require the perfect amount of planning, not only in the obvious, but also in what to pack.  That's where Everlane comes in.  I'm completely obsessed with this luxurious, chic line and can't get enough of their high-quality items.  I've rounded up a few of my personal traveling tips below and would love to hear some of yours as well!
1 - Wear oversized pieces.  I personally love to mix a good pair of shorts with a comfortable tee (preferably one with sleeves as I tend to stay chilly on flights), but you never want them to be too tight.  I purposefully plan to wear oversized tops + bottoms simply to stay comfortable while traveling.
2 - A chic backpack.  I know, I know, some people think backpacks are so 6th grade.  However, this particular style can double as a carry on while traveling and a carry-all while exploring a new city.  I love being able to throw my laptop, camera, wallet, etc all into one bag.  You never know when you're going to run into a quaint, little coffee shop and connect to wifi, so you might as well have all of your necessities in one place.
3 - A basic sandal.  I never, ever travel in anything but flats.  When you arrive to your destination, if you prefer to slip on heels, that's perfect, but while running through an airport, flats are a must.  I love the simple, clean lines of this slingback sandal and the Italian leather is just a chic, added bonus.
4 - Accessories.  When it comes to jewelry + sunglasses, stick to your classics while traveling.  I always throw on my favorite pair of cat eye sunglasses + a few dainty pieces of jewelry and call it a day. 
5 - A nude lip.  I like to keep my traveling style simple and not overdone.  I'm typically the girl who has ten different lip colors in her handbag, but after finding my new favorite YSL Lipstick, I completely gravitate towards this one all the time.  The sheer, nude color of this lip balm is absolutely perfect and goes with anything.  I wear this shade (lush coconut) with neutrals + colors and love the way it brings out your natural lip color while giving you a soft glow.  Especially during the summer months - it accentuates a sun-kissed tan perfectly.

If you haven't already, head over to Everlane and start planning your traveling outfits today!

Summer Beauty Faves

Jouer Make Up Bag {Ooh La La} | Stila Foundation {Buffy} | NARS Bronzer {Laguna} | YSL Kiss & Blush {Pink Hedoniste} | Jouer Eye Shadow Brush | Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz {Dark Brown} | NARS Eyeliner {Via Veneto} | Jouer Foundation Brush | YSL Lipgloss {Or Rose} | Dolce & Gabbana Parfum {The One}

There's something about summertime that makes me crave glowing bronzer, nude gloss + rosy cheeks and I can't get enough of these chic products.  I don't always splurge on cosmetics, but I'm definitely a beauty junkie at heart.  I always protect my skin first and foremost with an SPF moisturizer and like to keep my face make up very natural.  This foundation from Stila is perfect for keeping that glowing, dewy look all day long, especially when topped with NARS bronzer.  I also love matching my blush and my lip color.  This YSL Kiss & Blush in Or Rose is so chic and adds the perfect amount of color to really make your makeup pop.  Throw in a few classics like this amazing brow wiz from Anastasia Beverly Hills, YSL gloss + spritz on a little parfum and you're all set!  I love switching things up for different seasons and these are the perfect beauty picks for summer + taking you right into fall.

Thanks so much for stopping by, xo.

Flattering Florals

 Romper: Mint Julep Boutique c/o | Clutch: GiGi New York c/o | Shoes: Dee Keller {or here} c/o | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Watch: Michael Kors | Lips: Jouer 'Whitney' c/o

Happy hump day, lovelies.  So, I'm sure you guys are probably getting a little tired of seeing constant florals on my blog, but I seriously can't get enough of them.  Especially on these bright, summer days that call for fresh flowers + floral rompers.  I just love how easy rompers are.  A little more unique than a typical sundress, but so chic and easily dressed up or down.  Throw on a little pink lipstick, grab your gigi and you're good to go!
