September Favorites {Fashion & Beauty}

Friday, September 30, 2016

Happy Friday y'all! I have to tell you...this month has flown by so fast, that the end of the month took me completely by surprise. This has been the busiest month of the year, with the kids starting school, dance class for Madison, basketball for Austin, and then Sunday school. Coffee has been my best friend and I've literally been running from one thing to another. Anyone else in the same boat?! 

Aside from the chaos. it's been a really good month for catching up with friends. I have really missed them so and it was a breath of fresh air seeing them all and hearing about their summer travels, life adventures, and their plans for the rest of the year. 

I did manage to pick up a few things this month and all of these, both fashion & beauty, have ended up being major hits for me. This is why...

1. H&M Grey Sweatshirt: I love taking casual pieces and dressing them up in an unexpected way. I purchased this light sweatshirt as a great basic for Fall and I sized down for a fitted look. Here, I tucked it into a dressy white skirt and paired it with a belt for a bit of contrast.  But this would also be cute with a flowy boho skirt or casual trousers. It's such a steal at only $9.99, that it's a must have item to get!

2. Charlotte Tilbury's Iconic Nude Lip Cheat Lip Liner & Kim K.W "Hot Lips" Lipstick: Charlotte Tilbury's makeup is one of my favorite brands because the quality is out of this world and her line is just on point with my style. I gravitate to nudes most of the time and this is why I had to pick up the lip liner in Iconic Nude and the new lipstick in Kim.K.W.  They are such a gorgeous combination together, giving a puckery look to the lips with a hint of pink. Iconic Nude is also one of those colors that's the perfect base for all your lipsticks, regardless of the color. 

3. Nars Orgasm Blush:  Ok, so it's been years since I used this and ever since Nars came out with their limited edition Orgasm blush in the larger pan, it caught my eye once again. I have many blushes in my rotation, but I found myself wearing this a lot lately. It brings such a nice peachy pink flush to your cheeks and it just looks effortless.  I love highlighter on the daily, but for those easy makeup days, this is a great option because the subtle shimmer makes this a 2 in 1 product. 

4. White Lily Lace Top: As you know, I love lace and had to pick up this fun lemon patterned lace top from Anthropologie. This is one of those tops that is super flattering on, from the sleeve detail to the billowy silhouette. I love wearing it with a pair of distressed jeans and white converse or ballet flats for a casual look.

5. Adidas RMD R1 in Talc/White: Oh my goodness, I didn't expect to love these as much as I do! I have been looking for a neutral shoe to accompany a few feminine pieces. I really like the idea of taking feminine bottoms or dresses and adding a sporty feel to them. These kicks fit the bill and I absolutely adore them! I purchased the nude shade and they are super comfortable - I could not recommend them enough! You'll find yourself wearing them with everything!

6. H&M Parka with Hood: On those, "all you need is a light jacket" days, this is your gal. I like how light weight this parka is and the adjustable drawstring cinches you in at the waist if you want a more form fitted look. I purchased it in dark green and there's a hood, which is also a nice feature.  I look forward to taking this with me to my hubby's baseball games and other outdoor events. 

I hope you check these goodies out and I'd love to hear what you've been loving this month!  Please do share! Chat soon and have a great weekend! xo

Warmly ~
