Floral & Stripes

Floral1

Spring has finally sprung in Western Pennsylvania, and I couldn’t be more excited. Warm weather puts me in such a good mood, from running outside in the sunshine, driving with the window down or seeing fresh flowers. I’ve been itching to sport my favorite Spring styles, and mixed prints were top on my list.

I bought these shoes for my friend’s wedding and were the most comfortable heels I have worn! The gold and silver combo make them the perfect hybrid for any occasion or ensemble. I love throwing on a statement shoe to transform an outfit of simple staples. And who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

  4. Sephora Rouge Shine in No. 18 Just Dating

I am all about a pink pout this season! The closer to a Barbie hue the better. These are some of my favorites that I have been interchanging lately. I’ve been sporting Sephora Rouge Shine in Just Dating quite frequently. The pop of color applies glossy for the ultimate pink lip. For a toned down version of the trend, Mac Satin Lipstick in Pink Nouveau is a great choice. To go all out color Maybelline’s Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor speak for themselves. Pink Pop is a replica color of my childhood Barbie Jeep and Fuschia Flash is girlie glam. Pink lips are a fun way to update your look, and a trend that can easily be sported day to night.
