The Perfect Lip Color

lips

I have to share a full post on this lipstick… Even though in less than an hour I’ll be desperately trying to get my hands on a LipKit by Kylie, I am not sure she can top my favorite lipstick I’ve ever tried.  So if you miss out on the LipKit, try my gorgeous lip routine in three steps!

Step 1: Liner – I line first because I like to overline for a plump look.  If you line within your lips, you can prime first. The color is El Agua, and it is the smoothest liner ever.

Step 2: Primer – This stuff is just magic, and for only $7 it’s worth a shot right?

Step 3: Lipstick – The shade is Baci and it’s literally the most perfect shade to ever exist.

My favorite romper just got restocked! Plus you get 50% off your first order, so you can snag it for only $30.

I’m glad it’s finally getting warm enough to wear my favorite leg-lengthening shoe: A nude wedge.  For shorties with thick legs like me (I’m 5’3″ – I promise!) choose a wedge without an ankle strap for maximum lengthening.  I save my ankle straps for midi skirts or jeans. Mine are from a few years ago but I found a size 7 on Tradesy (Click Here) I also linked a pair that’s very similar to mine for you above.

Jacket | Rose Gold Aviators ($12!) | Ripped Jeans | Leather Peep Toe Wedges | Black Druzy Necklace | Black Leather Tote | Druzy Ring

I know this look isn’t springy, but I can’t stop wearing this cute cargo jacket with faux leather sleeves.  It’s great for random chilly spring days and it’s only $49!

I also really love the look of a strappy cami under a tank top, but I have had a hard time finding one that fits me (big boob problems!)  I came up with a clever little trick to create the look – I wore this pretty black necklace and let it fall into my top to give the illusion of straps!

Topped it all off with another bag from The Bagtique – this classy tote that goes with literally everything.  Check out the prices and brands at The Bagtique!!

Currently obsessing over this kimono.  Since it’s not quite summer, I just threw it on over my favorite jeans – but I can’t wait to wear it over cut-offs and as a swim suit cover up!

I’m also channeling summer with this super cute Juicy Couture basket weave clutch.  The details are what make me love this bag – the gold logo, tassel, and adorable rhinestone pave heart on the strap is just the right touch.  I got this one from The Bagtique – an uh-mazing place to get pretty designer bags for way less! (think Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Michael Kors… I could go on)  Check them out, I think you’ll love them as much as I do!

I have to also throw in that after years of searching, I think I found the most perfect lipstick color to ever exist.  It’s Stila Stay All Day in Baci. I haven’t worn anything else since I bought it!

Today I’m celebrating International Women’s Day!  It wasn’t that long ago when women couldn’t wear what they wanted in public – so thousands of us are posting photos in blazers using the hashtag #right2suitup.  If you post a pic with that hashtag and also tag @privesuits, you’ll get a $100 gift credit toward their store!

This blazer is my absolute favorite.  If you have curves at all and need suiting, the Exact Stretch line at The Limited will be your new best friend.  I have literally every color of Exact Stretch pants, and several colors of this blazer!  It’s stretchy and it’s cut just right.

I can’t wear these jeans to work, but I wear them like every day I’m off! They are one of my two favorite brands – DL1961.  (The other is AG – both brands are worth every penny) The material is thick enough to add some slimming shape but it’s also stretchy enough to feel comfortable.  Add my very affordable calf-hair clutch and pop of color with my heels – instantly adorable!

I don’t even know where to start here because I love this outfit so much! This skirt is gorgeous, and the fabric is thick and stretchy.  I got it at H&M, along with this top.  I am super picky about tank tops because I need underarm fat coverage (right?!) and the cut of this tank is very flattering.  Both of these pieces are in-store only, and the tank was less than $10.

I purchased the shoes on a whim, and I’m so happy with them.  They’re comfy enough to wear all day and they’re adorable with cuffed jeans.

This is my first time to try a midi (I always thought my hips were too big), and I’m officially obsessed.  I’m on the hunt for a few more in gorgeous prints.  Chicwish has a great selection (linked here and above) – I love so many of them!!  I’m thinking either the Santorini print or the Venice print since I recently vacationed in those places.  What do you think? Comment your faves and help me pick!

My favorite spring transitional combo is a sundress, statement necklace, and a sweater – and I’m loving this green cardigan, it’s the perfect color pop… AND it’s half off right now! It also comes in gray, ivory, and navy.

I’m totally obsessed with these wedges.  I wore them in gray all winter, then they got restocked in brown and black!  They’re incredibly flattering even with my jeans and they are super comfortable even though they are tall. (I need the height!)
