Alexa Chung x AG Dress, Schutz Sandals, Anthropologie Earrings

This dress! The second I saw the Alexa Chung x AG collection, I had hearts in my eyes. The entire collection is perfectly retro with a cool and modern twist. And truthfully, anything Alexa Chung approves of, I am into- she is effortlessly beautiful and the ultimate it-girl. With an off-the-shoulder silhouette and a flouncy neckline, this dress was made for a Mexican getaway.

Shades of Blue

If you’re not following me on Instagram, then you are probably wondering where the heck I am in these pictures! Last week, Dan and I went on vacation to a small island off of Cancun called Isla Mujeres. It was absolutely beautiful and we had a blast. It was fun to put away my sweaters and booties for a few days and channel my inner island gal. I finally bit the bullet and hopped on the crop top train, and I must say, I am glad that I finally caved. At 25, there’s nothing wrong with a little stomach sliver, just don’t expect any belly button crops because that ship has sailed!

Beauty Bits: Nude Lips

BeautyMar 09 20152 Comments


To say I am obsessed with lipstick is an understatement. I get it from my mom, we’re simply lipstick junkies. I rarely leave the house without some color on my lips, and I have at least 4 different colors in my bag at any given time. For a while, I was way into the red lipstick trend, à la Taylor Swift, but have found myself much more into the pinky/ nude shades this year.

MAC Pure Zen is my cannot-live-without favorite. I keep a tube at work, in my purse and in my makeup drawer… it’s an issue, but I need to have one with me at all times.

NARS Belle de Jour is a great nude- beige color for all skin tones. I like to wear this when I do a smoky eye, as the less-is-more nude lip tones everything down for a natural, sultry look.

Bite Syrah is more on the coral side of the nude spectrum and it packs such a fun punch. This lipstick is always in my purse, and transitions perfectly from day to night.

NARS Jane is my boldest nude shade and looks beautiful with dewy skin and a swipe of mascara.

Are there any nude lipsticks that you can’t live without?
