1. An Earcuff: I love wearing an earcuff lately. It adds edge without an actual piercing.
Ear Cuff, $88 shopbop.com
2. A bum bag: I’ve always loved fanny packs and I’ve picked a few up at thrift shops over the years. But for those who want something a little higher end, there seem to be more options out there. This version is both convenient & chic.
Bumbag, $165 DKNY
 3. A one piece swimsuit: I wear a one piece as a leotard with jeans or high waist pants because it keeps the lines very clean. You can also hop in the pool at a moment’s notice.
Swimsuit, $59 ASOS
 4. A colorful nail color: I work for P&G and I love the new CoverGirl Nail shades, like Mint Mojito. You really don’t need a topcoat!
CoverGirl Outlast Nail, $4.94 Walmart
 5. Go with everything sandals: I gravitate toward anything clear or Lucite so I hope to pick up these Seychelles’ sandals from Maude in Fayetteville
Seychelles Heels, $89 Maude
 6. A portable iPhone speaker: I keep one in my purse for impromptu dance parties.
iHome Speaker, $19 Target
7. Insoles: I wear heels almost every day. Dr Scholl’s insoles make it possible
High Heel Insole, $7.97 Walmart

What I Wore: CoverGirl Photoshoot


what I wore: wax skinnies – 1st kiss via TJ, top – vintage (thrifted), hat/mardi gras necklace – vintage via cheap thrills, booties – gojane, oxfords – target, sunnies – shop ultra
Last week I was lucky enough to be included in an informal CoverGirl photoshoot. I rarely get the opportunity to work with creative types, so I busted out an ensemble I hoped they’d appreciate. The hat was everything.

What I Wore: Tropicana

what I wore: dress – grey dog, arm party – mae’s/vintage/dannijo/express, lips – covergirl outlast in everreddy & covergirl lip perfection in hot (seriously this requires no reapplication), belt/shoes – forever21

I first tried on this beauty at grey dog a few weeks ago, I tried to resist but soon $ was burning a hole in my pocket and forced me back in the shop. Now, I’m so glad I went. What would my wardrobe have been without this adorable tropicana confection? It’s a vacation in dress form.

What I Wore: Among Hydrangeas

what I wore: vintage dianne ricco for nieman marcus (also seen here), cream blazer – unnamed vintage, heels – bcbg, lips – covergirl lip perfection in siren

I love this dress. It’s flattering, it can be casual or dressy and it’s work appropriate, but still a little sexy. It’s also happy – there are literally giant hydrangeas on the fabric. Don’t you love it when you find a dress that is versatile, fun and also you?

What I Wore: River Rat

what I wore: hat – italy vendor, blouse – thrifted, tube – target, shorts – old navy, sunglasses – asos, earrings/cuff – forever 21, rings – urban outfitters, beaded bracelet – a gift, lips – covergirl lip perfection in fairytale
I have always loved to dress on theme, whether on the high or low end of the spectrum. Some of my favorite occasions to dress for include music festivals, fairs and of course, the river. We went to the Mulberry this past weekend and I dressed for the occasion!

What I Wore: Psychedelic

what I wore: dress – cheap thrills (also seen here), heels – jessica simpson, necklace – forever21, lipstick – CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Fairytale
This is dress is one of my favorite finds. I love the silhouette, the neckline, the length and the color! I’ve also been totally into a bright pink lip lately. Spring makes me want to experiment with color. Hope you’re having a great day!

Party Trick: Lips

Pinned Image
I love wearing bold lipstick but I always get it on my teeth and I hate reapplying after one sip of a drink. One of my favorite tricks is to layer a favorite shade over a longwear. I kid you not, it lasts all day. Working for CoverGirl, I obviously tried the Outlast longwear and it works amazingly. I have looked for other drug store versions and have not been able to replicate so it really is my #1 recommendation. For Red lips, I use Outlast in Everreddy and once it dries I apply Lip Perfection in Hot.

For hot pink lips, I use Outlast in Dusty Rose and Lip Perfection in Spellbound.
