Everyone needs a go-to outfit that works for a wide array of situations. An outfit that takes zero thought, is cute but not in an overly trendy way, and is comfortable. This photo below is my go-to outfit – cropped straight pants with a little stretch paired with a square shape turtleneck. Black is my most favorite but I have this outfit in navy, as well. And the best part is that it’s not overly memorable so I can literally wear it all the time. With sneakers during the day or with heels and fun accessories for a night out.

Wearing:

black crop stretch pants, black swingy turtleneck sweater,

white low top sneakers, neutral crossbody bag

My black pants comes in various lengths and a rainbow of colors, and so does my sweater! This is the kind of outfit that you can have a great mix-match collection of pieces.

And I know I’ve talked about these on the blog before but these curvy side zip pants from Everlane are THE best.

Omg that floral linen smocked dress is the cutest! The light pink floral v-neck dress is one of the most hearted items on Shopbop (always one of my favorite places to browse btw).

And because the Kiki Ballet Flats are so good let’s look at the new colors. I know brown is brown but I’m loving their new cocoa shade, it’s the perfect color that will go with black and brown and navy and red and pink and white and everything else. I love that pretty blue, too!! They can be worn all year long.

And while we’re turning on spotlights, this long sleeve cotton tunic dress comes in a lot of colors, and you all know how much I love that.

I love that dark indigo color! It comes in a short sleeve version too that I actually have and love! It works well as a day dress or as a beach cover up!

I spent way too much time on Bloomingdale’s site yesterday collecting sale finds, and there are so many. But I narrowed it down from 15 to just 9 strong pieces because the collage looked a lot better with 9. I don’t love head-less collages, but this one is worth it.

That quilted Barbour jacket is a total beauty, isn’t she? That black top is a great simple piece to throw on with jeans for a day or night out. The white sweater dress would be adorable with boots. This is a great little black dress at a great price. And that smocked yellow floral dress feels so cheerful!

More Great Sales Happening Now:

ANTHROPOLOGIE: Take an extra 40% off of sale items! I love this black sherpa pullover and this pretty rug.

SHOPBOP: So many great mark downs including this navy floral blouse and these suede boots!

J.CREW: Take up to 50% off of outerwear and everyone knows that J.Crew has the CUTEST, well-made coats. This wool cocoon coat is one of my most favorites. And this puffer coat looks pretty cozy right about now.

Happy Friday, Everyone! My favorite day of the week! Have a lovely weekend!

Good morning! With the new year I thought it would be a good time to share my favorite beauty products that I can’t live without. I’m not high maintenance and don’t use products just for the sake of using them. I wear very little make up most days, but I do like what I like and I try to take care of my skin! I’ve tried a lot of different brands and products and these are the ones that are the best of the best!

THE 5 PRODUCTS THAT I USE EVERY SINGLE DAY:

This body hero perfecting body lotion is so good that I’m on my third bottle. It smoothes the look of my skin while moisturizing, and the smell is intoxicatingly good.

This Un-Cover-Up Cover Up is THE best every day concealer. It’s hydrating and dewy and luscious and feels light and bright. I literally can’t say enough about it. I’m on my 3rd container of this concealer, too. It makes you GLOW.

I collect a lot of lipsticks, I definitely have more tubes of this Generation G lipstick than any other brand. Not only do I have 3 different shades, but I have at least two tubes of each that I keep in various locations. It gives the best just-blotted look!

I use this nourishing facial cleanser every single night. True Botanicals makes all of my favorite skincare products and I use their Clear Collection to help keep my cystic acne at bay.

Speaking of True Botanicals, this Pure Radiance Oil is another product from their Clear Collection that I swear changed my skin. It doesn’t just moisturize, it purifies and balances my skin, preventing breakouts from happening.

5 MORE PRODUCTS THAT I USE MOST DAYS:

If I have plans and need to officially “get ready” then I’m likely wearing this Chanel Flawless Powder Foundation that I discovered last year. It’s like it lays a light filter over my skin that just makes my skin look so much smoother. Its kind of magical to be honest.

Okay, so even though I use this product all year long it gets A LOT more use this time of year. This bronzing powder is my favorite of all the ones I’ve tried. It gives a subtle sun kissed glow and is buildable!

Here’s another True Botanicals product that I actually use EVERY SINGLE morning but didn’t include in my Top 5 because I wanted to share the others first and was being a stickler about sticking to 5 (dumb I know). When I first wake up in the morning I spritz my face a couple of times with this Nutrient Mist to not only feel fresh, but more importantly its a daily vitamin for your skin! I also spray it every night BEFORE I put on my other nightly products because it makes my products apply really easily. Aaaand I have a travel size bottle that I carry on the plane when traveling! Obsessed.

So this Serene Scalp Balancing Conditioner is what made me purchase travel size bottles just so that I can travel with this stuff when I’m traveling and don’t want to check a suitcase. It’s that good. It’s gentle on your scalp, is hydrating, and it makes my hair so soft. I use and love the accompanying shampoo too! It’s also recommended for dandruff as well.

I’m rounding out the list with the True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster Powder! Did you know that Vitamin C is most potent and effective when in powder form?! You can mix it with any serum you love (I use this Clear Repair Serum) and it visibly brightens and firms your skin!! This is basically a product that every dermatologist can agree you should be using daily.

This year I want to focus on wellness as a lifestyle. I’m pretty good about exercising in general, but the last several months I really fell off of the “activity” wagon. So starting now I’m making a conscious effort to move more regularly as part of my entire day. And I’m so honored to partner with Nordstrom to share one of my new daily outfits that will encourage more movement!

I like wearing active wear mixed with regular street clothes because it doesn’t hold me back from walking more throughout my day, whether that’s to pick up my kids from school, or to go to the park, or to run an errand at the shop down the street. This classic chambray shirt is lightweight and is the perfect layering piece over leggings (I love these simple, black, high waisted leggings).

The smaller details can help you look pulled together, too. This pearl hair scrunchy is just about the cutest, isn’t it?! And my floral stud earrings are the perfect accessory because they don’t get in the way of exercise. They come in a few different color options.

I love the mix of the baby blue and peach colors on my Nike sneakers. And if you’re looking for good moisture wicking athletic socks that don’t slip then these cushioned tab back socks are for you. I have tried SO many different pairs and these are my most favorite.

My Patagonia fleece jacket is super cozy and warm. I really like the funnel collar and all of the trim detail. It’s my new favorite jacket for chilly days!

Wearing:

classic chambray shirt, patagonia fleece jacket,

black high waist leggings, white tank,

nike sneakers, white cushioned sports socks

pearl scrunchy hair tie, blue floral earrings

It’s easy to let our own well-being fall behind when we spend so much time focusing on our families. And it can be hard to find the time and energy (and maybe even more importantly, the desire) to exercise. That’s why I love walking so much. It’s not so strenuous and I don’t get sweaty and have to interrupt my day to immediately take a shower after. Plus it’s the perfect “me” time to listen to music or a podcast!

One of my girlfriends uses that Kopari deodorant and I tried it while we were traveling together and loved it – it smells so good. That black tank has just the right amount of drape to it. The quilted vest is the perfect option for adding layers but not restricting movement. And isn’t the neck line on this funnel neck hoodie so pretty?

Okay that stripe midi dress is adorable with that asymmetrical overlay at the waist (flattering!) and it comes in a great cinnamon color, too. The bralette would look pretty under so many dresses and tops and comes in a few neutral colors. And the pink coverup dress is super adorable (and reminds me of my blog’s colors when I first started LLL).

PS, did you catch my round up of easy, every day tops yesterday? They’re all under $100 as well!
