Charlotte Russe Crisscross Back Chevron Stripe Tank

Charlotte Russe Crisscross Back Chevron Stripe Tank

I picked up this chiffon tank a few weeks ago at the Charlotte Russe outlet store in Livermore, CA, and I’m obsessed. This is the perfect little top to wear under solid colored basic cardigans, blazers, or sweaters for a sharp geometric pattern pop. You can also rock the top solo, say belted with a bright red skinny belt to break up the pattern and give the silhouette a bit more shape. I’ve also really been loving this tank because it’s black and sheer in the back; totally lightweight and airy for those warm summer days. Perfect for day or night, worn dressy or causal!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Lashes are by far my favorite facial feature to enhance with makeup, and I’ve recently become curious about what I can use beyond plain old mascara. There are pricy growth serums and treatments, all kinds of false eyelashes, and primers you can use as well to compliment what you’ve already got before mascara goes on. These Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique essentially work similar to a traditional primer and mascara combo, except with hundreds of lash-enhancing fibers that kick it up a notch! You start by using your regular mascara; apply one coat and let it dry. Then move on to the first tube, the Transplanting Gel, in the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes duo, which will help the fibers adhere to the lashes. And you guessed it; the next step is to immediately apply the product from the second tube, the Moodstruck Natural Fibers, while the gel is still wet, to take your lashes to the next level. Lastly, seal it all in with another layer of the Transplanting Gel to top off the look. The Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes give your natural lashes a 300% boost in volume and thickness, leaving you with more full, bushy, and sexy lashes. The best part? This high impact product is waterproof, yet still easy to wash off with warm water and your cleanser or makeup remover. No more tugging at your eyes, rubbing away lash glue and impossible-to-get-off waterproof mascara. If you wear waterproof mascara or falsies daily, you know how much of a pain and chore removal is.

I’ve featured Younique cosmetics in the past, and I wanted to remind you they’re an all-natural and mineral-based brand, that’s free of parabens, oils, synthetic fragrances, and yucky cheap fillers! Younique also operates through direct sales reps, like many cult favorite beauty brands, so if you’re interested in a new career in beauty please check out their opportunities page. I’ve heard great things!

Dolce Vita Helia Low Wedge Sandals

Dolce Vita Helia Low Wedge Sandals

I’ve been a little sandal crazy this month, and I just can’t get enough of these mini wedge sandals. They go with literally everything. They give you the gift of extra height without being hard to walk in. They make your legs look good. They are light, compact, and travel well. They’ve got the seasonal trendiness going for it with its gold hardware and chevron-V embellishments. Lastly, it has a rich snakeskin texture that looks as cool as carbon fiber from afar. These Dolce Vita Helia wedges have got to be the most chic mini wedge sandals I’ve seen this season so far.

Femini Shoes Pebbles Sandals

Femini Shoes Pebbles Sandals

My shoe closet is in need of a sandal refresh and there are just so many new styles I want to get. Luckily I discovered Femini Shoes’s great selection of affordable summery sandals in call kinds of colors, and I think I’m going to start with this classic black thong with a twist. I love this style of sandal because it’s minimal, but it keeps your feet strapped in well at the heel. The circle cutouts give it a fun twist which can easily be worn to the beach or poolside lounge. You won’t catch me on vacation without these, since there’s always a lot of walking and exploring to do, and I need a nice sandal that’s great for hitting the pavement but also looks great with everything. Available in four different colors, I think I want them all!

Rebecca Minkoff Bettina Black & Rose Gold Sandals

Rebecca Minkoff Bettina Black & Rose Gold Sandals

This is the first spring-like day in San Francisco, with a high temperature of 70 degrees, so naturally my mind is on sunny weather fashion. I recently came across these beauts on sale at Zappos and I think they were meant for me. My love affair with rose gold is far from over and the warm coppery straps on these sandals will so beautifully compliment a tan and a bright pedicure. I also adore the criss-cross style of the straps and zipper hardware detail at the back. I’m so getting these soon, because I know they won’t be available for long!
