Versatility is key to most things I purchase, clothing related or not.
How many ways can I style it?  Can I incorporate it into my work wardrobe? Do I own something similar already?
By asking questions like these before making a purchase, I save myself from buying things I really don't love, won't wear, and that don't really gel with the rest of my wardrobe.

Which brings me to these joggers...

They are the perfect versatile trousers for work or play.
Today, I've paired them with a casual sweater from Gap and some leather brogues 
(on Thursday I will show you how I styled them for the office!)
This is going to be my default outfit until temperatures get out of the 60's.
Casual & easy: just the way an outfit should be.

A good shift dress is hard to find & I think this one from Banana Republic qualifies.
I love tweed fabric (wearing tweed here, here, and here) & theshape of the dress.
I bought it in a petite size so it would be little smaller all the way around and it fits perfectly.
A shift dress is really the perfect throw on and go garment.

It feels like it's been forever since my last post!
Work has been a bit crazy and has consumed my time this past week.
But after a much needed relaxing weekend, it is back to the grind.

This outfit I wore to my old college roommate ,Tara) bridal shower a few weeks ago.
The weather has been a bit touchy lately so the skirt/sweater combo worked without being too cold or too warm.
Plus, the color pink has is my new shade of the season.

This was the dress that I wore to my anniversary dinner with my boyfriend last month.
I'm a sucker for pretty back detailing and when I saw it at Lord&Taylor a few weeks prior to our dinner, I knew it was the perfect dress for the occasion.

clarins.


Last week I had the pleasure of heading over to the Bloomingdales at Tyson’s Corner mall to get a peek at some new Clarins products.  Not being well versed in beauty products, I jumped at the chance to learn some new tricks & products.
They have some great products for Spring/Summer but a few were my favorite and I have been using daily rotation since receiving them.

While I loved all of the products and I know I will use them (especially the Sun Care Oil Spray for Body & Hair) I wanted to share with you the ones that I already can't live without.


Double Serum: this is an anti-aging product that is supposed to transform the appearance of your skin. I can only say after a week of use, my skin feels awesome and I can start to see a change. I can't wait to hit the 4 week mark!



Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster:  This product had me at hello.  I am a person who should always be tan since I have lighter olive skin and when I’m pale I look funny, but I don’t tan nor do I spray tan.  With the Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster you can customize your tan!  Add as many drops (they recommend 3) to any moisturizer, mix together in palms, and apply to your face.  BOOM!  I have been using the suggested amount for a few days on and off and have to say I see a difference.  It has given me the perfect glow post winter.

Multi-Active Day Cream:  I have been a fan of my jared collagen L’Oreal moisturizer because it is think and I love how moisturizing it is, but have begun to realize it is too thick and heavy for day wear.  Insert the Multi-Active Day cream.  Thick & hydrating but not over the top.  I love it.



Multi-blush Cream Blush:  The multi-blush I received in grenadine, which I thought would be a bit too bright for me but ended up being  so perfect on.  With a little blending the color looks so natural.  And what’s so cool about it is that the blush feels like cream but applies like powder.  



Thanks Clarins for the great night and all the awesome products & Mrs. Palmer for being the best hand model! All opinions are my own.

Last Wednesday I was invited to the Bloomingdale's in Tyson's to get a peak at all their new Clarins products and this is what I sported to work & to the event after.
I will say, that I officially hate this shirt because I ended up snagging it 3 times during the course of the work day. Amateur hour over here.
Any-who, stay tuned to my post tomorrow to see my review of some awesome Clarins products, there are some real gems!

Like I said on Tuesday, the weather this past weekend really limited my wardrobe choices.  Since I packed my whole wardrobe but nothing appropriate for rain,  I was "forced" me to raid my sisters closet for rainy day appropriate attire.
She has an abundance of pretty tops & cardigans so it was a little hard trying not to sneak a few back with me.

This past weekend, I took a trip to Central VA to surprise my sister for her birthday.
I had a fun weekend planned for us that {almost} went off without a hitch.
The fact that it rained the entire weekend made me have to change a few plans but it was an awesome weekend filled with friends, food, and a few more surprises.
This outfit is probably the only items of mine that I wore when I was there, since I didn't really believe it would rain the entire time I was there.
AND how awesome are my new flats I snagged off GILT? I'm obsessed.
