TGIF: Random Thoughts

Warning: this video is pretty random ... also Rob was watching me the whole time which makes me feel awkward.  I do much better doing videos alone.  And WTF is up with the fly half way through? Regardless, here she is: 


Here are some links from things I talk about in the video: 
Alaia Sandals

In the video I am wearing:
J.Crew Boy Shirt
Kendra Scott Skylar Earrings

Don't forget to leave me Netflix and sunscreen suggestions! 

Since making this video I had FDD make me another tassel necklace that I love! 


Isn't it perfect for summer? 

Have a good weekend!

Dallas Recap + Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Vlog + Other Things

I went to Dallas a couple of weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to posting a blog update about my trip! First of all, let me say that I loved Dallas and would move there in a heartbeat.  I feel like I could basically pitch a tent in Northpark Mall and live there.  I went with my longtime internet friend, Shasta, and my friend from Memphis (who lives in NYC), Kyle.  Kyle was going for work and needed some company, so I gladly volunteered myself and Shasta.  

Here we all are outside of Stock + Barrel restaurant, which was excellent:


I'm wearing this festive Rebecca Minkoff dress with every TB item imaginable ... not really, but it sure seems like it #basic

Byredo Perfume at NM which I'll talk more about in the video at the end of this post:


I got THE CUTEST wedges at the Saks Off Fifth outlet ... they're Saks Fifth Avenue brand and were $59.99.  



I pretty much wore this J.Crew denim jacket all weekend.  I got the size Medium so it would be more oversized.  It's seriously the best jacket ever- super soft and comfortable. 

Wearing it again below with a shirtdress and Joie booties.  


We got our hair blown out at Blo Blowdry Bar - it was a fun experience but my hair was so sticky for days! I don't use hairspray ever so I'm sure the hairspray they used made my hair feel sticky.  


Nothing haunts you like the things you didn't buy! I tried on this pom pom scarf at Calypso and haven't stopped thinking about it!  

PS- I am wearing the new Tory Burch Chandler sandals (purchased during the TB promo) in this picture and they are the perfect flat sandal for summer.  


 Also got the Tory Burch Raleigh heel on promo and it is the perfect work shoe.  The heel is just the right size and they are comfortable enough to walk around in all day.  I wore them all day and threw them on with jeans and a chambray top for a dinner with my JL committee. 


I am the world's worst packer and of course I forgot a good hair conditioner which is crucial when you have tangly hair like me.  I picked up this little sample of conditioner and fell in love with it! The smell is amazing and it makes my hair so manageable and soft.  


And now on to the vlog where I talk about Charlotte Tilbury makeup and how to style dirty hair! 


Items in video: 

Jibere de Paris Curling Iron (can't find it online but it's on ebay)

Have a great Wednesday!

Updates + New Vlog with Saks Friends & Family Finds

I am still loving the J.Crew Midi Skirts ... I just wore the navy one last week and love the way it looked with a white tee and pumps. 

J.Crew Midi Skirt (30% off with code "TIMETOSHOP")



I have also found the best blazer at J.Crew Factory- I got it in blue and black. 



Here I am wearing it in black and I wore it with a pencil skirt that is also from Factory. 



If you have an Off Fifth go see if they have these nude pumps- they are seriously the best! The brand is "Saks Fifth Avenue" black label.  I can't find them anywhere online, but they look super expensive and were only 59 dollars.  



Here are the items I talked about in the video: 


And here's the link to the Refinery 29 Eyebrow Transplant article. 

Beauty Reviews, Mom Jeans & More

Apparently "Mom jeans" are back in style? I've been seeing them everywhere in fashion magazines and on trendy people via Instagram.  


I always think of the SNL Mom Jeans skit ... 



Or how about some Brenda, Kelly, and Donna???



I popped into Madewell after work yesterday and lo and behold Mom jeans greeted me at the door.  They were on the mannequins ... on the tables ... hanging from hangers, they were basically BEGGING me to try them on.  I am ashamed to say that not only did I like them, but they came home with me! 

Madewell also had an adorable jumpsuit that ties at the waist.  I purchased this one as well as I loved the easy breezy feel of the linen blend.  



...........................................................................................................................................

It's amateur hour around here and I made a beauty review vlog in celebration.  I attempted to film the video on my iPad and didn't realize it was going to be small like this- oh well! 


Products Discussed: 
DiorSkin Star Foundation

...........................................................................................................................................

I really want an IRO Paris pastel leather jacket, but they are just so expensive! Has anyone seen a cute and lightweight leather jacket that would be a good spring layering piece on the cheap? I have searched high and low and I either find one that is super expensive that I love or one that's cheap but looks like it's highly flammable.

Here are a few things that have caught my eye over the past few weeks.  I am finding myself yearning for new things with the weather becoming increasingly nicer as the days go by ... one can dream!
