FOUR PRODUCTS TO UP YOUR GAME FOR FALL


Every year when the air starts to feel crisp and the season changes, I like to switch up my beauty routine and focus on warm neutrals.  Nothing too out of the norm, just a few minor changes that make a big impact and give you that perfect, Fall glow.  Here are FOUR beauty products I'm upping my beauty routine with:

ONE: CHANEL Concealer. {$43}  This is one product that I cannot live without, but I tend to stray from in the Summer.  I don't wear a lot of make up during warmer months, so once my tan starts to fade and Fall rolls around, I pull it back out for a little extra coverage.  I wear shade #10 and it's such a classic, perfect color for Fall.  I apply this under my eyes to brighten and on my nose line to achieve a contoured look.  (I use a beauty blender to apply or you can always use your fingers.)

TWO: NARS Satin Lip Pencil.  {$27} As much as I love a good nude lip, I don't mind putting it to the side every now and then for a rich bordeaux.  A statement lip instantly adds so much to a basic outfit and completely changes the look of your makeup.  I just got this lip pencil in 'Palis Royal' and can't wait to incorporate it into my Fall looks.

THREE: NARS Eyeliner. {$26} I'm all about the copper + gold tones for Fall.  The minute I saw this eyeliner in 'Via Appia', I was obsessed.  In this case, you don't even have to give your classic black a break, just mix the two together.  I've been wearing this either on top of my black liner to really make it pop, or on the top lid while keeping the bottom my normal black.  I love the warm glow this adds to my makeup, especially when paired with a bordeaux lip.

FOUR: OUAI Rose Hair + Body Oil.  {$32} I've recently become obsessed with hair oils and this one from OUAI is amazing.  The smell, the weight of the product, and the fact that it turns my frizz into sleek - all make this product worth every penny.  I put a dime size amount in my hair after blow drying AND because my skin is so dry (especially in the Fall + Winter) I've even used it on my legs a few times.  It's not too heavy and has totally upped my haircare routine!

Any products that you guys are loving for Fall?  I'd love to learn about them!

COZY FRONT PORCH #ATHOMEWITHLOVELY


Sweater: Old {similar here that I just purchased in 3 colors + less than $40!} | Denim: J Brand {on sale!} | Coffee Mug: Etsy | Bralette: Anine Bing | Pillows: Etsy | Sectional: World Market 

Hi there, lovelies - 

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  The weather has been so beautiful here the last few days, so J and I have really enjoyed our morning porch time.  I love throwing on a cozy cardigan (this is the one from my IG stories last week and it's uh-mazing) or oversized sweater in the mornings to bum around in and these two are my current favorites.  I just ordered this sweater in three different colors and LOVE it.  It's so perfect for lounging in or dressing up and light-weight enough for this transitional weather!

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.

A CLASSIC FAVORITE

Top: Anthropologie {so chic, wearing a size small} | Pants: Club Monaco | Shoes: Zara | Handbag: Sézan | Hat: Revolve {sold out; similar here + here for less than $50} | Lips: MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety'

TGIF, babes - 

I hope you all had a great week!  Ours has been super busy and I'm really looking forward to the weekend.  We have a long checklist to accomplish, full of blog work, house work, (football, of course) and dinner dates, but ALL fun stuff to fill our weekend with!  The weather is going to be absolutely perfect - I love this time of year so much.  What are you guys up to?

Sometimes you throw on an outfit that just gets you.  And for me, it's usually the ones that I don't plan out days in advance.  It's the ones that you just throw in a bag last minute to head to NYC for 36 hours that end up being your favorite.  After having all the Persian feels in the new Sézan store, I threw this look on the next day and felt like it totally channeled that same vibe.  These pants are a classic go-to when I want something a bit dressier than black denim and this top...well, it's just a statement piece on it's own!  I love everything about it and it was perfect for NYFW.  Also, if you haven't noticed, I can't stop wearing this hat!  I've always been a hat girl, whether it's a ball cap, fedora, you name it, but this one is my current go-to.  Don't worry, I just ordered the same style in a couple of other colors, so in the words of Kevin McAlister - there's more where that came from. :)

Cheers to the weekend - I love you all! xx.

BONJOUR, SÉZANE NEW YORK







Outfit Details, c/o Sézane:

Last week, J and I headed North for 36 hours to attend the grand opening of the Sézane store in NYC.  The Elizabeth Street store is like a dreamy, Persian apartment that any girl (or guy for that matter) would die to live in.  Everything from herringbone hardwood floors and vintage, hand laid tile from Paris to stacks of fashion books and Persian art filling the walls - the L'Appartment is decorated to perfection.  Rack after rack of cozy sweaters, lace tops, high-waisted denim, and embellished jackets lined the perimeter of the store while accessories and leather goods from the new Fall collection filled the surrounding bookshelves.  Not to mention that no party is complete without french champagne and small bites, courtesy of one of my favorite NYC restaurants, Maman.  Obviously, I could go on and on about how amazing the opening was, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves!  

The moment I laid my eyes on this lace top, I fell in love with it.  It's perfect for Fall and pairs so well with anything.  Also, how chic is this handbag?  The new 'it' bag for Fall with terracotta boots to match?  Obsessed.

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.
Thank you to Sézane for sponsoring this post!

MUST HAVE CLASSIC NEUTRALS FOR FALL


Tee: Topshop | Blazer: J.Crew | Denim: MOTHER | Flats: Gucci | Handbag: Louis Vuitton | Belt: Gucci c/o | Sunglasses: Tom Ford | Lips:  MAC Liner 'Stripdown' + MAC Lipstick 'Blankety'

Hi there, babes - 

I hope you all had a great weekend!  Once we got home from NYC, I took a couple of days off from being a blogger + content creator and focused on being a wife, cook, gardener, auntie, + daughter and it was such a nice couple of days.  I truly believe that sometimes, you have to hone in on what's important in life and remember that everything is about balance!

This was my travel look to NYC a few days ago and not only is it super comfortable, but also so chic!  This sweater blazer is SO perfect for transitioning into Fall and I love the neutral camel color.  Also, my 'socially acceptable bedroom shoes' as I like to call them are not only my favorite shoes, probably EVER, but perfect for traveling!

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.
