Here is my outfit of the day...
Shorts: Express (similar here which are currently buy one get one 50% off)
Top: Banana Republic
Shoes: Steve Madden
Necklace: Anthro (I know it doesn't go perfectly with this outfit but I just wanted to wear it)
Makeup: This picture was taken after shopping so my lipstick had worn off. I decided to do my usual neutral eye but spiced up a little with some blue eyeliner on the bottom.
On to the important stuff---the shopping! I got some things at Sephora and Banana Republic (who would have guessed right).
I read a blog from Kandee the Makeup Artist about NARS Turkish Delight lip gloss. Its a pale pink shade and I think she said its worn often by some of the Kardashian sisters. I saw this color and loved it. It's so cute and pink. I can't wait to wear it. I really like NARS gloss, I have one other one and I think its smooth and not too sticky.
I also pick up some other needed items...
DiorShow Mascara. We don't really need to discuss this. You all know this is my Holy Grail of mascara.
I picked up this brush too for my face powder. The one I was using was a little too fluffy, better for my bronzer or blush.
Then I just got some brush cleaner as mine as way overdue for a cleaning.
I then went to Banana because I have some Banana cash and a birthday coupon so I figured I would be able to score something. BR always has the cutest dresses but for some reason, they just don't fit me right. It's pretty aggravating. But today I tried on three dresses, and with each one, my mom's face said it all---just not great. She then handed me this little thing and said (and I quote) "Just try it on". So I skeptically took the dress and tried it on and much to my surprise--it's a winner! I really shouldn't be all that surprised, my mom is the one that picked out my wedding dress after all). I think this will be perfect for my upcoming cruise vacation!!!
All full priced items are 25% off and then I had a birthday coupon and $20 of Banana Cash so yay for me! I also got this shirt and I think it's cute and perfect for work or play.
After all of this merriment, we headed to the theater to see Letters to Juliet. It was such a feel good lovey chick-flick. Very cute movie.
Tonight the hubs and I are having a mini fish fry with the fruits of his fishing trip today. I love fresh fish.
Tomorrow I am planning to try making homemade croissants---the dough recipe doesn't seem overly impossible and it is on my bucket list so I am going to give it a go. I'm sure you will be hearing about my success or failure on that front. Happy Saturday all!!!
