Favorite Pins pt.8 – Stripes

 

Here’s to another month filled with my favorite pins on my Currently Coveting board. This month I’m all about Stripes and I have to admit I was a little jealous when I missed National Stripes Day which is J.Crews very own holiday. For now I’ll just pin the hell out of my Pinterest board and look for some cute tops to buy. My favorite is number 1. The color is perfect for spring and off the shoulder tops are still in right now.  It’s also on sale right now for $54.99.

I currently own three striped tops, two are blue and white and the other is grey and white. My mini collection needs some color and I think the yellow and red tops would be the perfect. My ideal go to summer weekend look would be the yellow top paired high wasted denim shorts and espadrilles from Soludos. Number 5 is my second option and I would pair it with a short denim skirt and sandals.  Which top do you like best? Let me know in the comments below.

Favorite Pins pt.7

Here is part 7 of my Favorite Pins series featuring items I’m #currentlycoveting for the Spring/Summer 2017 season.  I’m into high-waisted denim at the moment because I bought new Levi’s on Amazon for $26. The best feeling is finding something you love at a decent price especially when you’re shopping. Levis have always been my favorite brand and you can never have enough denim right??  I’m also stuck on this big sleeve, shaggy blouse trend that’s happening.

I think it’s a relaxed classic look without being too formal. Straw bags are a must for summer and I really like the bucket style because they hold more. I need a large bag to throw my swimwear and wine into for beach days. This spring/summer I want to constantly be in denim, carry around tote bags, and wear sandals. This set of pins is what I want my wardrobe to look like and I WILL make it happen!

Loft Prints

Loft shorts

These shorts from Loft were a hit the first time I wore them. Throughout the day people complimented me on the print and it made me love my purchase even more.  My boyfriend spotted them at the Loft in Chicago while I was trying clothes on.  Along with the shorts I bought the peach dress  and a  black cardigan. Prints are fun to style but I like to keep it simple sometimes so I wore this Old Navy boyfriend shirt with the shorts.

I have very long legs for my height so when I’m wearing shorts they can look very “short” on me. These were the perfect length and cut which made them appropriate for work. Also, this style has a hint of purple in them which is my favorite color.  I didn’t see this particular style on the website but there’s a variety of different prints to choose from. How do you like to style your printed shorts? Check out my Instagram for some inspiration.

Keeping it Fresh

 

 

FullSizeRender (1)

Sugar Lip Treatment (Honey) –  For $22.50 it comes in a small round container with an ample amount of lip balm inside. I haven’t had to reapply this to my lips very often which is great because the product will last longer.  The lip treatments are tinted so I would suggest trying them before you purchase. The honey one has the perfect amount of tint and you can actually see it on my skin. With my purchase I received a ton of free samples! So far I’ve only tried the Soy Face Cleanser. For a gel cleanser it really works and I’m not a fan of gel cleansers so that’s saying something.

Daily skincare routine – Kimberly

Kimberly
Kimberly from Penny Pincher Fashion shared her daily skincare routine with me.

 

1. When you wake up in the morning what products do you use on your face?

My morning routine is pretty simple.  I wash with Dove Sensitive Skin bar soap & use my Clarisonic Mia to exfoliate my skin.  Then I follow it up with CeraVe am moisturizer (which includes SPF) & a light eye cream.

 

2. Do you use any products during the day to keep your face fresh?

The only touching up I do throughout the day is with an oil-absorbing powder (Arbonne Mattifying Powder), which helps eliminate shine.

 

3. What moisturizer do you swear by?

CeraVe has completely transformed my skin.  I was previously using a really expensive 6-step system and my skin starting breaking out after a few months.  My dermatologist recommended CeraVe and once I started using it, I never looked back.  I’ve even gotten friends and family members hooked on it.

 

4. What is your nighttime routine?

I remove my makeup with Almay eyemakeup remover pads, wash my face with Dove soap & then follow it up with exfolikate scrub. I use CeraVe pm, followed by an anti-aging cream & eye cream.

 

5. Any new beauty products you just started trying?

The Acure Eye Cream is a new-to-me organic product that I really love.  I’ve noticed a difference since using it and I like that it doesn’t contain harsh chemicals or irritants.
