    This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Wet-Nap®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #ConquerTheMess http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

    You probably already have your makeup routine down pat. Foundation, blush, mascara, lipstick – repeated on a daily basis. But one of the most important things you can do for not only your makeup, but your skin, may just be getting overlooked.

    Cleaning your makeup brushes may seem mundane, but I never even thought of it! I’ve done a bit of research into how to avoid breakouts (something I’ve been struggling with lately) and cleaning out your brushes was consistently in the top five preventative steps. How come I had never thought of that before?

  • Inspired Style

  • August 1, 2015
  • This post is sponsored by E! Entertainment Television.
    IMG_0019 I’m always on the hunt for inspiration. Everything from runways to reality television, I find inspiring people with inspiring street style that I love to channel or fuse with my own aesthetic. Lately I’ve been obsessed with the borderline edgy minimalism style of Kimberly Stewart. If leather and leopard are her best friends, layering neutrals is her cousin in her family of fabulosity.

    I totally stole her style formula of ripped skinny jeans, a cheeky graphic tee, all topped with a polished third piece. I love how she combines neutrals so effortlessly and loved the result of when I did the same. Thank you Kimberly for my new fall uniform.

    You know I’ll be tuning into E! Entertainment Television to get a healthy dose of reality tv and a bit of fashion inspiration simultaneously via the new show, Stewarts and Hamiltons on E!

  • Jewels and a Jumpsuit

  • July 31, 2015
  • IMG_0280 I have been a long time fan of jumpsuits and rompers. The vintage vibe meeting effortless practicality has me reaching for one almost every summer day. One piece and done – just like a dress, fuzed with the functional nature of pants. It’s really the best of both worlds.

    It’s easy to style a jumpsuit for a casual summer day. Your favorite pair of sandals and a sun hat and you are ready for a day at the beach. But what many might not think of as a great date night option, might actually be the perfect option.

  • Pier Print

  • IMG_0447 Last week, Z and I went to explore our little slice of the Pacific Northwest a bit more. We became tourists in our own city, which was super thrilling and exciting, viewing the Seattle with fresh eyes. We went on the ferris wheel and walked along the piers on a cloudy and uncrowded day. We watched ferries coming in and our of port and got treats from our favorite stand inside the market, Cinnamon Works. Hello vegan cinnamon rolls that are equally as addicting as they are delicious.

  • Camel & Crimson + WIWW

  • July 29, 2015
  • IMG_0488 The older I get, the more I realize the importance of neutrals in a closet. When I was in college, I had a mini crisis (most likely trigger my being surrounded by 20 year olds) that I was dressing “boring.” Looking back, that “boring” way of dressing was the bud of true sophistication. But when you are emerged in a land of sequins, chevron prints and neons, it can cloud your judgement very easily.

    Fast forward to now, post-graduation and at the start of my career, I long for neutrals. Slate grey, camel, classic black and cognac is the backbone behind the closet I pull from every morning. Layering and pairing them in an unexpected way however, is the key to keeping this fresh.

  • Double the Bows

  • July 28, 2015
  • IMG_0230_1 For a recent night out with Z, I resorted to my favorite summertime color combination: mint and blush. The already feminine duo got a girly accent with lots of lace and double the bows.

    Living in the heart of Seattle, we tend to walk absolutely everywhere. So even when I decide to get all dolled up for a date, flats are practically mandatory. Because I’m a heel lover through and through, I opted for the fanciest flat option I had in my shoe collection. A nude color blends with the blush nicely while elongating my legs. The bows and patent leather add a bit of luxury to a practical shoe.

  • Floral Frocks Collab with Navy Grace Blog

  • July 27, 2015
  • IMG_0144 As I start my new career in Seattle while balancing being a blogger, a fiance and just a 22 year old woman in general, I fall back on an arsenal of dresses to carry me through whatever events life throws at me. That’s why I’ve teamed up with the gorgeous Camilla, from Navy Grace Blog, to share our takes on floral frocks. Camilla has a great trendy style (and is seriously good at makeup, I’m seriously in awe). I love how she mixes pieces for a look that is 100% her. Check out her Instagram here.

    But unlike a lot of people in Seattle, It’s not in the budget to be buying a new dress for every occasion. Therefore, with simple styling tricks, I’ve found ways to make the same dress work for a wedding (guest), work and cocktails.

    My best secret is to find a dress, like this one that has structure, a defined waist and a high, scoop necklace that’s sleeveless. For work, simply layer a white blouse or a chambray tank underneath the dress to create an equally stylized and professional outfit.

  • Abstract Printed

  • IMG_0392 I’m always on the hunt for blousey pieces that are conservative enough to work for both during work and after, as well as being fashion-forward enough for my taste. When I laid eyes  on this Maggy London jumpsuit, I knew I had to have it.

  • Brisk Morning

  • July 24, 2015
  • IMG_0223 Maybe it was the Anniversary Sale reminding me that fall was right around the corner, but I got my first taste of my favorite season last week. It was a brisk morning on the North West coast with that autumn chill in the air that makes you crave coffee and chunky knit sweaters.

    This army green track pant from L. Mae Boutique was the perfect base for my pre-fall outfit. The rich hue, complemented by my favorite camel color – and of course – leopard.

  • Stripey + WIWW

  • July 22, 2015
  • IMG_0322_1 Finding the balance between appropriate, fashion-forward and truely you in an work setting can be difficult. With my job at Nordstrom, I’ve even found that to be even more so. There is a clear “Nordstrom” type of style that I’ve picked up on that is different than my personal aesthetic. Also, my current role is a bit casual, yet I want to be professional and super polished. But after a month, I’ve seemed to hit my stride. I’ve defined my young professional uniform as a modest, yet fashionable dress, great heels and a leather jacket.
