I have been loving this midi length lately.  It’s so ladylike and feminine.  This outfit was so effortless, I tucked in a sparkly crop top and added a belt.  I’ve worn this outfit out on date night and to a bridal shower lunch.  I can’t wait to dress the skirt down by putting on a sweater or denim shirt.

Have a great week! :)

I’m pretty much obsessed with this blazer!  My sister got it while she was staying with me and I had to wear it before she left.  The details on it make it so feminine while keeping the great structure of a blazer.  And bonus, the silk scarf part is removable; leaving you with a classic black blazer.  Leather is so hot right now!  So pick up a pair of leather leggings or pants, or over the knee boots.  These are a great pair of OTK boots.  And with 25% off at Shopbop right now they are a great price for the quality!

Best Skincare Products on a Budget

We all want to have beautiful skin, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to get it.  Today I’m going to tell you the brands and products I like for the lowest price possible.  I will not be recommending products from the drugstore, but high quality products for the lowest price.  I only recommend products that I have personally used and love and would use on my own skin.  I have yet to find products at the drugstore that have good ingredients and are good for my skin (I’ve tried!).  But here’s a secret: A good quality product will last you longer because you don’t have to use as much of it.  All of the cleansers and moisturizers I’m recommending will last you 4-6 months.  Let’s get started!
