Plaid & Polkadots

It may not feel like the Holiday season just yet (today it was almost 70 degrees!) But lately, I’ve found myself leaning towards cozy plaids, and statement metallics. (oh and a festive red lip!.. love Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous in Inimitable)

Black & Bronze

Metallic denim is a chic alternative to your basic blues for day or night. A chambray shirt is a great option to tone down the look for day. (Wise Words from the Staff at J.Crew: “When in doubt, Chambray out!”) A sleek black blazer puts an edgy spin on the denim for night. I love the sheen of these bronze beauties, & they’re under $30!

Friday Finds

  1. The Best Makeup Brush Cleaner Ever. – I was in search of an innovative way to clean makeup brushes, that even by using department store brush cleaner, won’t come clean. I found this recipe on Pinterest, but I didn’t have tea tree oil, so I changed it around a bit. It makes your makeup brushes look brand new in seconds! Just swirl brush around in the cup with mixed ingredients. Rinse with hot, then cold water, pat dry excess water & let dry brush side up in a cup.
  2. Diptyque ‘Baies’ Scented Candle – This candle is so relaxing and refreshing! It just smells pretty. A new nightstand staple.
  3. ShoeMint Hillary Flats – Pointed toe & a bow are one of my favorite combinations right now! So cute.
  4. Antioxidant Superfood Smoothie – I’m obsessed with making smoothies with my favorite superfoods. Usually my mid-morning pick me up.
  5. Cozy Sleek – Can’t get enough of OP’s urban chic plaid.
