Blank NYC Faux Leather Jacket, soooo similar here (almost identical), also similar here / Madewell T-shirt / Paige Denim Jeans / Booties (similar) / Rebecca Minkoff Bag / Necklace (similar) / Sunglasses / MAC ‘Rebel’ Lipstick

Merlot is the color of the season.  And I love it in a jacket.  I’ve had this jacket for about 2 months now.  It keeps selling out and coming back in stock.  So if it’s not available in your size there is a chance it might come back in stock.  And yes, the t-shirt I’m wearing in by Madewell (the one I found on my crazy search to find the perfect tee).  After wearing and washing them many times, I can officially say they are perfect!

Gingham Shirt

B.P. Gingham Shirt, also love this shirt and this gingham dress / Jeans (similar) / Kate Spade Pumps, similar under $100 / Rebecca Minkoff Bag / Sunglasses / Bite Beauty ‘Winterberry’ Lipstick

It’s difficult to tell in the pictures that my jeans are wine colored, for some reason they look black.  Black and wine have been my obsession for fall!  I can’t get enough.

I’m so happy it’s Friday!  I’m getting the new iPhone today, which I desperately need.  I have the 5s with only 12gb of storage.  I constantly have to delete stuff so I can take pictures and videos.  Then tomorrow John and I are off to Tampa for 2 days to celebrate my brother’s birthday.  We haven’t been away together without our kids in over a year.  We are so excited!

Lorac Pro Matte Palette Review

lorac pro matte palette

I have been loving the Lorac Pro Matte Palette.  I talked about it in my recent favorites video and used it in a birthday party makeup look last month.  I got it about 6 weeks ago and it’s been used almost every day.  The matte shadows are very creamy and blend very easily.  The colors are not to cool or to warm, they are juuuuust right (a little Goldilock, haha).  The pink mauve and burgundy colors are perfect for fall!  And the price is awesome, 8 shadows for $29… that’s hard to beat at this quality.

Tunic (sooo similar), also similar here / Aritzia Faux Leather Leggings, also love these faux leather pants / Shoes (2 years old), similar hereobsessed with these / Vince Camuto Bag, Quilted Tote  / BCBG Earrings / MAC ‘Peach Blossom’ Lipstick

Sofia’s birthday was on Thursday.  Between family and friends, most of the weekend was spent celebrating.  It was so much fun (and so cute!).  A party of a bunch of 6 & 7 year old girls is so adorable!  I still can’t believe she’s 7!!  This birthday feels different than all the rest.  7 feels so much older than 5 or 6.  I’m not ready for her to grow up.  I want her to stay a little girl forever!  I love that she still loves princesses and my little pony.  I want time to stand still so she doesn’t get another day older.
