July is the perfect month; no school, no stress and SLEEP.. I go to bed at 2 am and wake-up at 11! It’s only problem is that it lasts a HOT second. Then comes August, bringing the same vibes as a Sunday night…the realization that summer is coming to an end, or that tomorrow is Monday. Both equally scary.
It makes me sad to even fathom the end of summer so I’ve decided to focus on what makes me happy; fall! aka – SEEING THE DONUT, NOT THE HOLE! I love fall; I’m no longer a slave to my Nair — no combination is as fulfilling as prickly legs and jeans! Then comes along dark nail polish, scarves, jackets, boots!! I love boots so much. I pulled out my brown riding boots that have been hiding in the closet for a very long time and I can’t wait to wear them with shorts/overalls/dresses. Chrissy Teigen wears chunky boots with denim cutoffs and I’m smitten with the whole look.
Shorts + knee boots make some people prickly! I’m don’t fancy myself as the type to wear ugg boots with shorts (circa 2004) but I like boots and shorts. If they make me happy, then so be it, I’m gonna wear them! Here’s a picture of Emmanuelle Alt wearing the daring duo so they can’t be that nasty.
BOots aside, up above is my wish list that I made. I think it’s a valid reflection of my yearning for fall.. The denim romper is like a new version of overalls – I like alot and I think it would look marvelous with tall boots like the nude Joie ones.. That combination is on fuegooooooo. The black bag slightly resembles the Saint Laurent micro sac du jour which is always welcomed and good. The two – tone grey/nude leather booties might give my wedge sneakers a run for their money… The hat is the answer to any hair dilemma.. The rose gold Birkenstocks are ridiculous and I want them so bad. The best pair I’ve ever laid eyes on. The striped dress is a closet essential that is surprisingly super hard to find..I’m all about throwing something on and heading out the door and that dress or that black denim skirt paired with a white vneck makes that possible.
I’m a beauty product junkie that has just rediscovered her love for bronzer!! I still have the shimmer Benefit bronzer that I used to brush all over my face in junior high and I think it’s time to get grown up bronzer — aka nars laguna. The moroccanoil masque works wonders for damaged hair. I used it when I had blonde hair and it took my hair from feeling like hay to healthy hair with texture. I do so much to my hair and its fragile! I’ve heard nothing but good things about this Oribe texture spray and I love texture/salt sprays for my hair. They make hair messy and imperfect and imperfect hair = perfect hair.
I’ve recently grown a penchant for bubbles baths. I found a travel container of the Bliss spa bubbles in my beauty closet and it made so many bubbles. I can’t wait to take another bath with it.
