Leather + Floral

Bracelets: c/o Stella Valle (Heart: here, Hexagon: here, Rainbow: here)

Hey guys!

In today's post I'm sharing one of my favorite combos, leather and floral. Both are classics and both are complete opposites. I love how they complement each other and how the leather gives a little edge to the femininity of the floral.

I get tons of questions about this leather jacket. I'm always asked where I got it from. Now, it was purchased from Nordstrom a few years ago and is no longer available. I've searched for some similar options and I'm sharing them with you today!

My Beauty Routine


Happy Monday!

I've been getting a lot of questions recently about my skin care routine and makeup brands I use. I thought I would go over everything today + share shopping links, so keep reading!

Above is an unedited photo. I wanted you see what my skin really looks like with the products I use. My skin is normal to oily, what works for me may not work for you.

Let's get started...

For years now I've been using the same face wash and facial lotion. Every night before bed I wash my face with Aveeno's Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser or their Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. After I cleanse, I exfoliate. A great natural exfoliate is sugar. I then moisturize with Olay's Complete All Day UV Moisturize. I then use a small amount of Coconut Oil on my face (avoiding my eyes), neck, and chest. For blemishes I use Clean and Clear's Advantage Mark Treatment. I swear by this. I've been using this since I was a teenager. For acne scars I use Ambi's Fade Cream. Now, some people forget to show love to their lips. I wear a lot of lipstick which dries them out. To rehydrate them, I use Kaplan MD's Lip Mask and Hydrating Lip Balm. If I have time, I use these two products before putting on my lipstick.

Now, when it comes to makeup I am very loyal to a few products. My all time favorite foundation is Revlon's PhotoReady Foundation in color "medium beige". I apply my foundation with a Beauty Blender. Recently I've been mixing my PhotoReady with Loreal's Infallible Pro-Glow foundation. I've heard good things about this new formula from Loreal and I like it. In my opinion, not as good as the PhotoReady but still good. I am also obsessed with Maybelline's Age Rewind Concealer in color "Neutralizer". I apply this under my eyes, bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, and chin. Then blend with my Beauty Blender. Another must have of mine is E.L.F.'s Eyebrow Kit in "medium". For blush I use MAC's "margin" and for highlight I use MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish in "soft and gentle". Now, to set everything, I use Makeup Forever's HD Mircofinish Powder and NYX's Dexy Finish Setting Spray.

For a little extra glow on my body (collar bone and shoulders), I add a little Body Illuminating Fluid from Say Hello to Sexy Legs.

I think I covered everything. I hope you guys enjoyed this! Below are shopping links to everything I spoke about. Talk to you beauties soon!

Black Lace and Fringe

Lace Blouse: Zara (sold out) Similar options below

Hey guys! Ever have one of those days where it literally takes you almost 4 hours to get a task done? A task that should only take about 30 minutes? Well, that just happened today trying to upload this blog post. Belly growling and all, it's done! 

I hope you all enjoy this look. It's my version of edgy femininity. All black, lace, and leather. I love the mix of textures. It's still very warm where I am so I opted for shorts instead of jeans. I like how it gives the appearance of a playsuit/romper. Next time I think I will style this blouse with black skinny jeans and a leather jacket.

As always, shop the look below! Happy Thursday!
