Skincare Round-Up

As the cooler weather approaches, I have been more adamant to be conscientious about the products I am using on my skin. I have narrowed it down to a few of my favorites in this post that I wanted to be sure to share.

What is your go-to skincare product?

Fenty Moisturizer : I am usually more careful about 2-in-1 products, but this one I love! I apply one pump (a light layer) on my face for the SPF and to keep my face feeling hydrated. Extra points for applying it on your neck and tops of your hands.’

 

Kopari Toner : my holy grail when it comes to toners. It goes on so easily and is so light, I always go back to this one

Paula’s Choice : This chemical exfoliator really makes a difference in my pore size and my skin overall! We love a product that actually makes a visible difference. Also, the peptide booster is what dreams are made of, such a must in a good skincare routine.

Youth To the People Dream Eye Cream : My favorite undereye cream. I am all about undereye creams because I get bags so easily. This one is so gentle and hydrating.

Versed Brightening Serum : Okay. Let me just say that when I use this before applying my makeup I am glowingggg all day. I know it’s not meant to be a base for your makeup but if I let it sit for a second, my foundation just glides on and my skin appears much more glowy.

Trend Alert

If you have seen my recent Instagram stories, you may have seen that I have been spotting a lot of mix-matched tops and pants that have been popping up. I am really liking this creative streetwear trend. Not only do the fabrics look like they have just been pieced together, but I like how the pleating has an inside-out effect and makes it look a bit more grungy. I definitely think this is going to come and go quickly as it is not a style everyone will get behind. It is definitely something that is fun though as I have seen it on Luisa Piou on tik tok which seems to be bringing the look a bit more mainstream.

What do you think about this trend?

Trending : Pleather

Sweater weather? You mean pleather weather. (I’m ashamed to admit that I wrote that down in my phone just to remember for this post.) Of course faux leather is huge for the cooler months. Pleather for Winter? Groundbreaking. -Miranda Presley

But seriously, I am loving the faux leather blazers, trousers and satchels, oh my! And as the neutral queen that I am, I rounded up a few good ones for you to check out below.

What is the one fabric you are LOVING right now?

I assume that the faux leather industry is similar to the faux fur industry as it is better for the animals when the fabric is imitation but probably has some kind of effect on the environment. While I do not know the statistics on the leather industry (please comment if you do) I again assume that it is a segment of fast fashion. The pants that I have pictured were only $25 and while I plan to make good use out of them, not everyone can or does. This again seems to be a toss-up but worth looking into if you are interested in a long-wear pair.

How to Make your Outfits Dynamic

Here’s one thing about me, when I am getting ready, there has to be a certain balance in my outfit. A lot of the time I feel like something is missing or I need a focal point. I remember seeing some of the girls in my sorority in college get dressed up to take pictures and thinking to myself, there’s nothing special about their outfit. It wasn’t me trying to put them down, but in my head, it just wasn’t that dynamic. What takes a story to the next level to win a Pulitzer? The uniqueness, the innovation, the simple details that draw the reader in.

When I dissect an outfit I love I analyze every detail. My long skinny jeans will not give me the same effect as a girl wearing the same jeans that hit perfectly at her ankles. And it seems pretty easy to know how to mix up an outfit when you know what you’re looking for! While a regular sweater, jeans, and booties from Nordstrom will do great on the gram, I’m looking to mix up the lengths and fits to make it unique. Maybe it’s just the subtle things that I notice that don’t mean much to others, but if they’re into styling they know what I mean.

The most common way to enhance your outfit is, of course, accessories. I’m no longer a fan of a chunky necklace, but to me a thin gold chain can make all the difference. A bag that matches your nail color draws the eye to your hands. A monochromatic look can stand out more than a bold colorful one. The devil truly is in the details.

Three things make my outfit dynamic.

  1. The lengths. The cropped sweater gives enough skin so I am not overwhelmed by black since my pants are tucked into my boots and give the illusion of one big piece
  2. The bag. The slight dimension of color change gives another layer to the outfit without going to far out of the palette
  3. The pants tucked in. My pants are not perfectly tucked in especialy because they have a slit down the center and I am able to let a flap out, that gives it more of an effortless look

At the end of it all, just pay attention to what makes you like one outfit verses another. I’m sure its more about the exact wash or where the distressing is on denim or how a girls hair falls perfectly out of her cap. Look for the little things.
