dress up

All summer long my worn in jean shorts have been my go-to thing to wear. They’re perfectly broken in, are so incredibly comfortable, and can be dressed up or down. I wear them to lounge in, to run errands in, and even occasionally for a date night out. But sometimes no special reason is the best reason to step it up a bit, so I threw on this new silk dress last week for an impromptu late dinner date at my current favorite local spot – Eatery A. (Where I don’t even bother to look at the menu anymore – #12 pizza and a side of brussels sprouts, always, please!) I love a good dress that can be worn in a million ways and this is the prime example of one – with flats or heels, with a lot or just a little jewelry, and layered up with a jacket and scarf. Bare legs season is coming to a close so I’m going to enjoy the last bit of it all I can.

The weather last week was all over the place, which makes getting dressed for the day a little tricky. When the seasons change it feels like everything in my closet is suddenly ‘wrong.’ The calendar says one thing but the weather says another. I’m ok with that sweet summer sunshine to stick around as long as she wants.

I picked up these leather shorts during a trip to Cali a couple months back, and have found them the perfect piece for this time of year. Despite my love for summer, I can’t stop buying everything for fall right now – leather, boots, scarves, cashmere – this time of year is pure bliss for any clothes hound.

NYC2

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks. Between a quick couple days in Chicago (to visit a showroom), a California getaway with the boyfriend (where I got to visit a girlfriend in LA and then we trekked to Yosemite for some hiking – and camping!!), and this past weekends work trip to magical NYC (for a spring buying trip for Proper), it’s been a month full of moving fast, packing and unpacking bags, and lacking any sort of routine. I love that. While the trip out to Cali was just for fun and NYC was just for work, I always tend to mix the two. Work talk while I’m on vacation, and sneaking in play time while I’m traveling for work. Getting out of town is the best – I always come home inspired, energized, and exhausted all at the same time.

I’ve had a love affair with my eyelash curler for pretty much as long as I can remember. It’s the one makeup bag and purse staple that when used, I finally feel ‘put together.’ When Veet asked me to be part of their ‘Girl Truths’ campaign, and share a silly ritual that I do on the regular, I knew it involved my trusty eyelash curler. I admit to keeping one at all times in several purses, my makeup bag, and sometimes even in my car. It’s ridiculous, I know! But I love that little metal clamp and what it does – or really, how it makes me feel.

I want to know what your ‘Girl Truth’ is – what little beauty routine do you do regularly that you know may be a bit unnecessary, but you do it anyway? Leave a comment by Friday 9/12 sharing what it is and you’ll be entered to win great Veet products. (My personal fave – the Fast Acting Gel Cream Hair Remover – it’s superfast and easy to use, and gets all the spots on my legs I tend to miss with a razor!)
