Monogram Bikini

Growing up in Connecticut, my style is definitely on the preppy side.
I love navy and white, stripes, Tory Burch Wedges and of course, monograms.
When I saw these monogram bathing suits, I just fell in love and knew this was
the suit I just had to have for laying poolside this summer. 

The combination of navy on navy or navy on white are my favorites and 
I will be going with either bright pink or turquoise for my monogram!

Order before June 1 and use WhiteSale15 to receive 15% off a monogram bikini top!

**PS: Cassandra this would be perfect for your honeymoon - 
show off your new initials!

What's in My Make-Up Bag?

I have very sensitive skin and I am very particular about the make-up brands 
I can wear. Almost every brand you can buy at the drugstore makes my eyes water
and my skin breakout. That being said, I wanted to share some of the products currently
in my Tory Burch Make Up Bag. Most of these are basics and are perfect for everyday wear!

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Tulip - This can be worn over a lipstick for a nighttime look, or on it's own for a neutral hint of pink.

Tory Burch Rollerball Perfume - I love this new scent and it fits perfectly in my bag since it's a rollerball! 50% of all proceeds go to the Tory Burch Foundation. 

Oribe Texturizing Spray - I am borderline addicted to the way this Oribe spray smells. It adds a bit of volume to my hair after I straighten it, so it's not so flat. The travel size is just the right amount.

Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer - I cannot RAVE about this product enough! It is the best coverage concealer I have ever used and it doesn't cause creases under my eye. It seriously covers my dark circles, even on their worst days. HIGHLY recommended! I have pretty fair skin and I use #2.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler - I have been using the Shu Uemura eyelash curler since I was 14. It never pinches my eye (a real fear of mine) and always makes my lashes look long and very curled.

Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Plum - Initially, I had used this eye stick in a lighter color as an eyeshadow. When I tried the plum as an actual eye liner, I realized I loved it even more. It creates a bold look that stays in place all day through the night and the plum color is just so pretty.

Aerin Lip Conditioner - My lips are always chapped. So while I am putting my makeup on, I like to throw this lip conditioner on my lips to get them ready for any lipstick or lipgloss i'm going to be wearing later on.

Laura Mercier Lip Balm SPF 20 - When i'm running out the door, or I know I am going to be spending a lot of time outside, I use the Laura Mercier lip balm - it has an SPF of 20, which protects my lips and keeps them extremely soft. Plus, it smells DELICIOUS.

The Shift Dress: An Easy Outfit

There is nothing better than having a cute dress you can just throw on 
with a pair of strappy wedges, a cross body bag and head out the door.

These types of dresses are the best kind for the summer months. Dress it up
for a nice dinner date or dress it down for a day of shopping or as a 
bathing suit cover up! Laura Mercier has some of the most luxurious
body lotion, and is perfect for making sure your skin is hydrated and touchable!
(plus the body souffle has been a favorite of mine for over 10+ years!)
And don't forget to wear a touch of lipstick - a bright pink sounds just right.

Summertime Wish List

Happy Friday! I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to go through 
old suitcases that have clothes from 4+ years ago that I haven't 
worn and have been holding on to for no apparent reason. I made three
 piles, re-incorporate into my closet, donate or throw away. It is also really fun
to find new pieces that will work well with what I currently own. I have put together
my summer wish list of items - shoes, new makeup, maxi dresses, accessories and bathing suits!
They're all pretty colorful, as I am drawn to the bright, fun colors for summer.
Have a great weekend!
