The strangest thing happened this weekend. It was 70 degrees in February in Ohio! I won’t get too excited because I live in the Midwest and the weather can change in the blink of an eye. I didn’t want to be presumptuous and think that I had this weather for longer than a day at most. Rather than pulling out my spring wardrobe, I decided to wear a pair of olive peep toe booties that I planned to save for spring.
I actually fell in love with a pair of Lucky Brand booties that look exactly like this at Nordstrom that was at a much higher price point. I found these booties at Just Fab for under $40.
In transitional weather, I always try to find unexpected ways to play with color. Blue is going to play a major role in spring fashion especially; wearing multiple tones of blue. I thought this marbled sweater dress from SimplyBe was perfect for the warm weather and to bring in more olive I added this lightweight anorak jacket.

I have answered your prayers with a favorites list that will not break the bank. (Maybe I am just answering my own prayers) I love mixing high and low-end brands. These are my current obsessions:
There are pros and cons in the summer months for me…. shine and shine. I want that JLo glow but since I have oily skin I end up looking greasy like Jermaine Jackson. Carol’s Daughter Acai Exfoliating Toner is perfect for removing excess oil. It cleans without striping my skin of its natural moisture. Plus it smells super yummy.
I am addicted to Garnier Clean invigorating daily scrub. It is made with peppermint which makes your skin instantly clean. It is suggested for normal skin but the formula is oil free and I haven’t any excess oil build up. My face has felt so clean I proudly participate in no make up Monday!
I am about to hip you to one of my ultimate skin care steals…. I never buy body butter from The Body Shop!! I buy it from TJ Maxx. I may not have the newest scent but I pay $5.99 for a full size tub. I snagged the Honeymania scenta few weeks ago and I can’t get enough. I enjoy smelling like a warm organic scent and this is right up my ally.
If you’re a makeup junky then you may already have the Urban Decay Electric Pallet. If you are a neutral eye shadow girl trust me this pallet can still work for you. The colors are vibrant and can be toned down with your existing neutral colors.
I have read a few magazine that stated you should give up matte lips for summer and I completely disagree. Wet N Wild mega matte lipsticks are not overly drying and have great color. I am currently obsessed with purty persimmon. The color is orange with a slight hint of red. Hot tamale lips to go with the summer Other colors I like in the collection are mauve outta here and bare it all. (PS if you want the glossy look just add some clear gloss over the matte lipstick)
With so many nail colors to choose from these are my current faves: From Essie, play date and chillato. I love Sally Hansens no light gel polishes(insider tip: use the gel top coat on any brand of polish to prevent chips in your manicure) B.Girl. Sinful Colors, Innocent.
I got this black beach bag from H&M I thought it would make a great on the town bag. I plan to make an insert bag to conceal my wallet and other items. If you are not feeling crafty a printed makeup bag would work as well. I thought it look like art sitting on the shelf. I have been skeptical of JustFab for several years but I can say now I am a believer. This pair is comfortable and the straps are super sexy. A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes
Temporary tatoos are not just for kids anymore! They are the new sexy summer accessory that will draw the eye to where ever you chose to put them. Try adding them in non traditional places on the body. I plan to wear mine with swimwear and on the street as well. These are designed by Ephemera locally in Cincinnati but you can find them online. Stay tuned I plan on styling these soon!
