Covering yourself in rose gold from head to toe may seem a bit excessive but rose gold is in for summer 2016 and you’re an adult!
Every girl deserves the rose gold treatment be it on your eyes, lips, cheeks…and even your nails. With this trend you can glisten galore or stay warm with more coppery tones. Of course it’s best that you add a little bit of gold here and there if this isn’t a color you use frequently. Perhaps going with rose gold lips shades in the beginning and then moving on to the rest of your aesthetic needs.
Here are ones I’m obsessing over!
Lips so shiny no one will be able to resist with Gloss Volupte, the new generation lipgloss from YSL. This is super shinny and an added bonus…keeps your lips hydrated all day long. For lips as irresistible but more tamed aim for Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Lip Color to get that effortless look with a hint of shine. It contains lavish butters and oils that keep working to keep your lips hydrated long after the shade fades.
If you’re feeling more adventurous and are ready to branch out and take on the shadows aim for sheer with Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow from Bobbi Brown. It’s lightly pearlized and will brighten the lids in a super soft way…perhaps it can even be used to highlight under the browbone, for now. If you like your shadows in powder you may also want to give Benefit Cosmetics Velvet Eyeshadow a try. It’s long-wearing so it’s perfect if you’ll be out all day and don’t have much time for touch ups.
Rose gold on the fingers…yes please. This High-Gloss Nail Lacquer from Gucci is too pretty not to wear. It might just be my favorite tone, as far as nail polish is concerned. It’s glossy but the super light shade tames the high-shine. Diamonds and Pearls are a girl’s best friend but this tone from Deborah Lippmann may be too pink for the more sophisticated crowd. Perhaps best left to the younger generation and millennials.
I hope you guys love my favorites and give rose gold a try!

Summer is here and it’s time to bring out those simple, yet chic, dresses to work and play in. Playing up your curves is in this year so opting for cutout dresses that call attention to your waist is definitely a must. The Alice + Olivia dress, with a darling dipped back hem, is super effortless and is the perfect summer dress for curves. Style it down for a day feel and quickly turn it into a summer date night look by adding a few simple touches.
Adding a little gold to your outfit with the wedge heeled sandal by Aquazzura will be the perfect addition to your look. The leather trimming along with the lace contrast makes these espadrille inspired’s a must for your summer wardrobe. You’ll be able to wear these with just about anything in your closet this season. The Street Level tote is great if you’re going for more of a day look and it’s faux leather which makes this slouchy bag even more desirable. I’ve never found a slouchy tote I didn’t like and the animal lover in me is super excited this gorgeous summer bag is faux!
You’ve got your main pieces but your accessories will ultimately complete the look and this is where you bring out your personality. I am super into nudes, grays, and of course the color I am most obsessed with, rose gold. Quite honestly, in the beginning I did go with a gray strap watch to complete the look but I stopped myself and thought adding a little color to this look would be perfect. I did look at a few rose gold accessories but I didn’t think it was bold enough for this look. After all, this is a super clean look and it does need a pop of color. Ultimately, I decided to go with the stainless steel ladies watch from Hermès because I love the orange wrist strap. It’s just the right hint of color to take this look from safe to daring.
Don’t be afraid to play with your look until you settle on one that’s just you!
If you have broad shoulders, you’ll want to stay away from swimsuits that will make your shoulders appear wider. With it being the season for swimsuits you’ll want to start looking for that cute one or two-piece that will draw attention away or divert from the zone. That implies finding a one-piece with bend complementing side cut-outs that can relax an athletic upper body (otherwise known as one-shoulder styles) and can separate the neckline. These cut-outs are almost too good to be true as they give you those dangerous curves you weren’t born with. From darling one-shoulder swimsuits to moderate cut-out one-pieces, here are some looks you just can’t pass for your summer wardrobe.
1. Mara Hoffman
Drag attention away from wide shoulders with sexy and attractive side cut-outs and an absolutely fun geometric style. So cute you’ll never want to take it off! These colors are also super playful and a fun way to add personality to your beach look.
2. Jo De Mer
You’ll be the belle of the beach with this elaborate cut-out with rings that connect the suit…think of the tan lines and circles. It’s almost too pretty to get wet…almost. After all what’s all that beautiful water for if you can’t dip your little body in it.
3. J. Crew
The more dramatic the cut-out the sexier the curves! The bow accents on the hipbone are the perfect way to look more “hippie”…if that’s your thing. It’s probable my favorite piece from all the looks because of the side bows, so cute!
4. Agent Provocateur
This one-shoulder piece is going to soften your top half while the asymmetric cut-out calls attention to all your curves. It’s the perfect combination to get that feminine beach-body shape we all adore. This color is also perfect for summer so you can’t go wrong!
If you love the Bohemian look this is the perfect summer suit. The royal blue is super striking so nobody will be looking at your shoulders. Even if they were this top is going to make your shoulders look super sleek and feminine so let them stare…you’ve got nothing to hide.

The Kardashians know how to do Balmain very well…now you do too! This Balmain crochet gown, from Balmain’s 2016 Resort Collection, with it’s intricate weaving, is the standout piece so keep your accessories to a minimum. Perfectly fine because you’re not going to need much to get noticed when you’re wearing Balmain.
The gold accessories I’ve chosen for this look compliment the gold-tone zip that runs through the entire back of the dress. The goddess cuff by Stephanie Kantis goes well with the strong silhouette and structured shoulders while the caged design gladiator boots by Michael Kors might take some of the spotlight. While a gold sparkle pearled pout will tame down your look (loving Estee Lauder’s Vivid Shine collection) the Gucci shoulder bag will certainly help you twinkle all night long.
When you find the perfect combination between shimmer and tame you’ll have created a Balmain look so pretty no one can resist. As with everything else, practice discretion and do you…there’s no one better.
Downtown Los Angeles is quickly becoming a runway for the many who choose it as their playground. Whether it’s sneakers or stilettos, statement heels or sandals, the streets are overtaken with individuals making a statement. Of course, with so many trends it can be hard to know which ones to keep up with and the ones that just aren’t for you.
The pointed toe heels are a favorite and must be on every women’s must have list! These shoes will give you a leaner look because they elongate your legs. It’s the perfect way to stay absolutely graceful this spring with very minimal effort. The suede leather Sigerson Morrison Galicia is super classy while the Proenza Schouler suede slide, with silver tone hardware…simply unforgettable. Combining these spring 2016 trend with skinny jeans is great for a sexy comfortable vibe while pairing it with a pencil skirt is a bit more daring.
There’s no stopping the gladiator sandals, and who would want to. Whether it’s the demure ankle-length version or the not so subtle over the knee sandals, there’s a pair fit for everyone. While this trend could be hard to pull off if you’re not on the catwalk there are still some fun ways the everyday girl can include them in their wardrobe. A pair of flat gladiator sandals are lovely on a spring day, and this pop of yellow is just what your spring wardrobe ordered. If you’re a bit more daring opt for the Rag & Bone suede gladiator sandal to pair with your favorite shorts for a powerful and statement-making look.For a look that’s a bit less high maintenance than heels and more refined than flip-flops, flat sandals are the perfect go to for a casual chic look this summer. Textured sandals are a nice way to take a simple sandal more exciting and the Fendi Embellished leather sandals are a perfect example of just that. No one would dare call these sandals simple! Chain-link sandals are another great spring must have and the Michael Kors tumbled metallic leather sandal are an easy pair to work into any outfit.
Wearing sneakers with a skirt might not be your thing but it’s certainly a popular spring 2016 shoe trend! Pairing sneakers with a soft feminine skirt is a great way to balance your look. A super fun way to look casual and lovely! Nike Juvenate leather-trimmed woven grosgrain sneakers are a more softer sneaker so you can pair it with more feminine pieces to complete your look. High-top sneakers will go great with a pair of shorts and mini skirts. The Giuseppe Zanotti Exclusive Pink pair are too pretty to ignore and will liven up even the softest spring looks.
Adulting is hard but keeping your eyebrows on fleek shouldn’t be! Getting your eyebrows to look good could be difficult because of the minefield of hazards you’ll have to overcome to get them just right but the pros got you. Quite honestly, even if you think you’ve got it handled it might be best to go to an expert for a quick visit to get the right shape for your face. Once you’ve got the perfect shape you can invest some time for the upkeep and have brows even Cara Delevingne would be jealous of.
Brushing your eyebrows is the first step to obtaining a tamed look whether you want structured brows or wild and unruly.Laura Mercier spool brush will help you achieve the well-groomed look all day long while Lancome’s dual-ended brush will allow you to reshape, blend, and groom any way your little heart desires.Now that you’re well groomed it’s time to fill them in to make your eyebrows appear thicker and fuller. If you want a heavier look an angled brush and powder like Anastasia’s two-shade brow powder is the way to go. If you feel as though maybe you went a little too far with the heavy just press your brows gently with your fingers to soften the look. In order to get a natural look go a shade lighter than your hair color and more muted. When opting for a pencil go for a super fine tip likeAnastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz to make the smaller strokes that mimic actual hair.
Brow gel is a must have for anyone with thinner eyebrows! For adding volume and texture it’s really in a class in it’s own. You can also opt for a tinted gel which will cover up any gray hairs or for those little hairs to light to be seen. I’m loving Benefit Cosmetics brush on gel that has a matte finish.While having unruly and wild eyebrows is completely acceptable make sure you don’t have any little hairs not adhering to your rules. Perhaps my favorite go to, for removing even the tiniest of hairs, is the Tweezerman Slant…it grabs the hair every time. Maintenance of the perfect brows also requires a good eyebrow scissor and this Sephora Collection Eyebrow Trimmer is perfectly angled to get the perfect shape!
Spring is the perfect time to take out those sweater and skirt combos. Predicting what the whether will be like during this season is quite difficult. The days can be warm and sunny or it’s rain showers galore. Often I find myself reaching for simple sweaters and feminine skirts because of the unpredictability. This combination is comfortable, chic, and super easy to pull off.
The skirt and sweater combinations are endless with stores putting out there most darling spring 2016 pieces. When it comes to this effortless look I’ve got my favorites. Check out these to die for combinations every spring closet shouldn’t be without…
Isabel Marant Top / Needle and Thread Maxi Skirt
A quilted cotton-blend top and a crinkled-chiffon maxi skirt is the perfect combination for a romantic lunch date. Of course this isn’t just the perfect fit for a date, you’ll look so careless and chic running errands in this perfect spring must haves.
Dion Lee Sweater / Marni Mini Skirt
I’m loving this asymmetric skirt and it’s day-to-night abilities. Pair it with a cutout sweater for a more daring look that’s perfect for the day and can be worn in to the night, just a minor shoe change and a few accessories later.
TIBI sweater / Miguelina Skirt
You’ll never go wrong with a simple cropped sweater and a linen skirt. This combination is actually one of my favorites and a go to for those days where I’m not quite sure what look I’m going for. I’m just in love with this skirt!
Carven Sweater / Stella McCartney Pencil Skirt
A knit sweater and a wool blend pencil skirt…nothing’s ever looked so serene. The pink and blue is a great combination for any spring day. It’s super cute and has calming abilities none of the other sweater and skirt combos have. It’s probably my favorite.
If you’re just as obsessed as I am with a good designer bag sale…you’ve come to the right place!
