My Best Friend’s Style

my-best-friends-style

 
This week I’m highlighting some lust-worthy picks inspired by my best friend, Rachel. These pieces are a little of her, a little of me – but all the way fabulous!
 

1. Golden Mink Eye Shadow Quad: Tom Ford.  So I’ve seen two people (with very different skin tones) wearing this eye-shadow and it literally looks good on everyone. The warm tones and touch of sparkle aren’t your everyday nude – but they aren’t over the top either. When I was in New York I sneakily used the palette after digging through Rachel’s makeup bag – and fell in love. Hook a sista up, Rach!

 

2. Liri Pearl Blush Choker: Lionette by Noa Sade.  Full disclosure – I already bought this choker! I had a pretty big client meeting last week, for which I had to fly up to New York. Since it was my first time back in the city since we moved, I wanted to go back to my old stomping grounds with a new outfit. I kept it conservative… but of course, fashionable! I still wanted to feel youthful and like myself. Funny enough – my mom actually picked out this choker! The blush stones bring a girly touch to an edgier piece of jewelry, and the pearl is the sweetest touch. Plus it’s on sale (link below)!

 

3. Ruched Shirt Dress: Veronica Beard.  This dress brings sex appeal to an otherwise conservative silhouette. I love the neckline, the button details and the figure-hugging fit. Rachel tried it on in white and it was absolutely stunning. The white is the crisp kind of dress you can wear to work and then out for rooftop cocktails and not look out of place! The black is so chic and would be great even later in the year, layered under a chunky cardigan or leather jacket. Can I have it in both black and white please?!

 

4. Mitzah Twilly: Dior.  Earlier this year, I wrote a post on top “neckerchiefs,” but now I’ve got one more to add to the list! On a recent shopping trip to Dior – Rach got this pretty twilly that she wears around her neck. It’s the perfect size and less bulky than a full-fledged scarf. Since then, I’ve had my eye on the monogrammed collection! I love that each letter has a distinct style – and it just so happens that the “O” is my favorite! While Rachel mostly wears hers around her neck, I see myself wrapping the handle of my favorite handbag.

 

5. The Noir 29 Shower Gel: Le Labo.  Again with my stealing Rachel’s cosmetics and fragrances. It’s not my fault she’s a beauty guru! When staying at her place I used this shower gel by Le Labo and the scent was absolutely intoxicating!! It’s a little pricey, but I think I’m going to spring for it to use on nights when I want a more luxurious shower experience!

 

6. Coco Knotted Velvet Slide Sandal: Loeffler Randall.  Words can’t express how much I love these shoes! I bought them in the prettiest shade of marigold yellow, but they’re SO COMFORTABLE and look good with everything – that now I want them in watermelon. Am I being greedy? How does that saying go, “If the shoe fits, buy them in every color!”

 

And there you have it…this week’s round-up. Let me know your favorite pick in the comments below!

Father’s Day Gift Guide 2017

Father's-Day
 

Hey dolls! Happy Tuesday! June is almost halfway over and that means two things to me – Father’s Day and my dad’s birthday. Luckily for my dad, I’m the type of daughter who gives him two separate gifts…even though the special days often fall on the same day. So when this time of year rolls around, I’m extra woke to gift-giving. No matter your price-point, I’ve got my roundup of picks to spoil dear ol’ dad this Sunday. My favorites include:

 

1. J. Crew Panama Hat – I love a good hat, and chances are your dad will too! He can spice up an outfit with this summery accessory, throwing it on for a day at the beach or an al fresco dinner with mom. Tres Chic!

 

2. Pottery Barn Waffle Weave Resort Robe – Who doesn’t love a luxurious robe that can make home feel like the Ritz-Carlton? I actually want one of these for when I step out of the shower and am bumming around the house. Sorry dad, might have to get one of these for myself too!

 

3. Salvatore Ferragamo Polo – This polo is for a classic gentleman on a casual day! I love the deep navy color and the tiny Ferragamo insignia on the collar – it’s luxurious but not too flashy.

 

4. Lanvin Silk Pocket Square – A pocket square is an easy way to upgrade an outfit. I love this luxurious silk ones from Lanvin and this micro space-print is out of this world. See what I did there? The pattern is understated, but a little funky – a great combination if you ask me.

 

5. Sur La Table Whiskey Stones – Whiskey stones for the dad who doesn’t want to water down life or his drink. These keep your cocktail cold without the condensation or dilution of flavor.

 

6. Aesop Jet Set Travel Kit – My parents like to take little road trips – so what’s better than pint-sized versions of luxury bath products. My mom and I have the full-sized versions, but this is great for a dad who stays on the go for work or fun!

 

So there you have it – my fav Father’s Day picks of 2017. Here’s to you dads – thanks for everything you do!

Memorial Day

So Memorial Day is upon us and I’m totally stoked for the long weekend. With the move, my parents visiting, and getting settled at work – we haven’t yet had the chance to enjoy our new home and city. This weekend, I’m excited about sitting by the pool with an ice-cold drink, exploring the city, and shooting some new content for you lovely readers! Oh, and some shopping is on my list too. The Georgia heat is real y’all, and I need some new summer essentials!

 

Just in time for the holiday, I’ve rounded up my latest picks for the weekend and for some Summer fun. New season, new home, new lust list- and everything is coming up rosé!

 

1. J. Crew One=Piece Scoop Back Swimsuit – The silhouette of this swimsuit stands the test of time. I’ve been so into one-pieces recently, so I love this classic take in a variety of gorgeous hues. Just what we’d come to expect from J.Crew.

 

2. Wölffer No. 139 Dry Rosé Cider – The crispest and most refreshing cider in the game! I love that it’s actually a rosé, and not to mention the bottle is gorgeous! I actually did a wine tasting with Wolffer at my old ad agency, and visited the vineyard in the Hamptons with Rachel this summer. It’s definitely one of my favorites, and if you haven’t given it a try – then I suggest you grab a bottle…or 3. No judgment.

 

3. Everything, Everything – Don’t forget to throw a good book in your beach bag this weekend! Everytime I see the preview for the new movie Everything, Everyhing – I get a little misty. I’m not crying; you’re crying! Besides the cutest co-stars (Rue from the Hunger Games, and older brother from Jurassic World), the story about falling for the boy next door, and making the most of life – seems like perfect summer read before it hits the box office.

 

4. Nannacay Baby Pom-Pom Raffia Straw Tote – The cutest little straw tote with ombré pink poms to make it even more special. I love the shape and size! It’s perfect for throwing in some sunnies, a good book, lip balm, and a yummy coconut water!

 

5. Chanel UV Essentiel Sunscreen – I can’t say it enough – protect your skin! The older I get, the more concerned I’ve become about treating my skin right. Sunscreen is such an important part of self-care, especially in the Summer! This pick from Chanel is lightweight, not oily, and will keep you looking flawless!

 

6. Gucci Square Colorblock Sunglasses – I don’t know…I just love these. I feel like they remind me of neopolitan icecream. They might be a little out of the box, but I think they’d be gorgeous with a white jumpsuit or an black sundress. OR just go bold and wear it with some color like a hot pink or bright emerald green. I’m headin to Saks to try these on immediately!

 

7. Sea Pink Tie-Front Cutout Sundress – Love this color and the peekaboo cutouts.  Plus, give me a bow any day!  I love that it show a flash of skin, without being too much.
