LET’S BE CLEAR: Getting Dressed Up Can Be Quite The Chore, No?

I mean there’s the outfit, the hair, the makeup, the perfume/skin care/shaving, blah, blah, blah, blibbity, blah. So obviously when I find a go-to outfit that’s easy, I fully commit.

By fully commit, I mean sometimes I wear it more than once. You know, more than once a week. This outfit is one of those outfits.

Relaxed hole-y jeans, a cropped sweater with a 90’s vibe baby doll tank ( such a good Urban Outfitter’s find! ), & a flannel around the waist…and I’m good to go. And if you know me, you know 99.9 percent of the time I’m wearing white shoes.

And can we talk about hair? Because lately I’m into the NO F’s GIVEN hair. This means buh-bye perfectly coifed, curled outward hair…Taking it a step further & throwing it into a low pony is always casual chic too. Add some thin, delicate hoop earrings & I’m feeling it.

I’ve said it once ( twice? ) & I’ll say it again: ponytails & messy buns are red hot. They’re effortless & different while maintaining an I-don’t-care-what-you-think attitude.

I LOVE.

DO YOU?

Anyway, lately this kind of outfit with sex pot hair is just doing it for me.

For some reason I feel like the outfits we’re all committed to just really need to be dry cleaned & we’re entirely too lazy to do so. It’s really just easier to wear it 2 to 3 (or 4?) times a week.

Are you fully committed to a go-to outfit? Would love to hear.

I Hate When My White Shoes Get Dirty…Except For These Cuties

LAURYN

The Skinny Confidential talks white shoes.

The Skinny Confidential talks white shoes.

If you guys know me you know I HAVE A STRANGE, UNHEALTHY obsession with white shoes.

Like open my closet & there’s WHITE, WHITE, white pumps, white penny loafers, white oxfords ( < fav ), white Converse, & white flip flops ( strictly for the house, to be real I’m not an outside flip flop wearer unless I’m lounging poolside in Cabo with a fruity umbrella drink ).

I’d probably die without white shoes ( you know this already though if you follow me on Snaphat ), I swear I dream of them.

AKA my Visa hates me.

The Skinny Confidential talks white shoes.

Let’s get specific about white kicks: I HATE when they get dirty.

In fact, I’ve literally gotten in too many fights with Michael because he ‘accidentally’ steps on my white shoes…& well, I go into full blown meltdown mode.

Can he EVER look where he’s going?! I MEAN.

There’s one exception to this story: my white Converse.

{ white tee | skirt | sunglasses (similar) | shoes | white nail polish }

Every girl on the planet should own a pair of Converse. I got mine from Nordstrom…AKA my favorite department store because they carry the best brands, the music is so Girl From Ipanema/therapeutic, & there’s a full-on men’s section which is so perfect for distracting men while you shop till you drop ( *cough, cough* on their AMEX ). Anyway, Nordstrom is Converse heaven with every color/style ( think turquoise, red, grey, high top, low top ).

Because maybe you’re a dolphin grey or poolside teal kinda girl ( but clearly I’m Team White ).

And call me weird but I like my Chucks to look a little vintage. Kinda rugged.

So I scuff them up. I like when Michael steps on these ones. I’m like, ‘step on my shoes babe!!!’ LOL.

Anyway, I wore this outfit to a girl’s night out ( sushi & saki!! ) and it was a perfect look because it was relaxed with a touch of chic ( heyyy long, tight maxi with a slit!! ).

I swear though, you can rock white shoes with everything, every season, every second.

Heyyyyyyy guys!

Last Valentine’s post, I promise!!

But I wanted to show you what I wore for V-Day!! These pictures were taken in LA but I ended up packing this exact outfit & rocking it in Sedona, Arizona.

I’m ESPECIALLY in love with these nude pumps because they seriously look JUST like super expensive ( think $700 Jimmy Choo’s ) shoes but they’re Charles David and under $100:

By the way, if you’re looking for the shoes I’m wearing, check out these babies for A REAL steal.

I’m also a big fan of SALES! So when I saw this floral blouse I’d been eyeing on sale, I snagged it immediately.

Lately I’ve been so in to black, nudes, greys, & whites that I realized I was neglecting color. So I went on Forever 21 & bought this floral top & the one I’m wearing.

Scoreeeeeee.

Ok, let’s talk about this white bag (!!!) I MEAN!!! It’s from Forever 21 & again…in person looks full-on designer. This white bag is different & super fun, right?

I’m a total fan of buying trendier pieces at places like Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, &/or Urban Outfitters.

Ok so lastly, these BLACK JEANS ARE MY FAVORITE! And they’re under $50 bucks. They fit me like a glove & just really go well with everything. Remember I talked about them here? I’m strangely obsessed with them. Like if you saw my obsession with these jeans, you’d think I was weird.

If you want to check out how I ended up doing my hair & makeup, click here.

In other news- I really hope you guys all had a badass Valentine’s/Galentine’s. Sending good vibes from Sedona!!

A Touch Of Glam For NYE

top ( sold out but similar ) || black skirt ( similar version for $29 ) || arm band

I loveeee ( like loooovveee ) New Year’s Eve.

It’s so fun to get dressed up & feel all girly especially knowing the next day is a new year/fresh start.

And honestly, there’s something refreshing about a new year while you’re rocking glitter & feeling confident.

When it comes to makeup/hair/outfit on New Year’s, I’m veryyyy specific.

Typically I go for Marilyn-esque hair, a red lip, a little glitter, BIG ( BIG/HUGE/FLARED) lashes, a pop of gold, a flowy skirt, & a glass of bubbly.

For this NY look I curled my hair two days before, slept on it, brushed it out a little bit, & sprayed it with a bunch of hair spray ( totally feeling a deep, deep side part for 2015 ).

For my makeup: I used this red lipstick & Kylie Jenner-over lined my lips with this liner. I LOVE this red lipstick because it doesn’t do that flake-y thing…no one wants flaky, New Year’s lips.

Ok, so LASHES ARE KEY. I’ve been using Urban Decay’s ‘Perversion’ for the past six month ( see: totally used bottle, lol ) & it’s literally the best mascara I’ve ever used. If you’ve read The Skinny Confidential Book you know I like to prime my lashes, curl them, add mascara, & repeat so the mascara needs to be the ‘right mascara.’ Meaning it can’t be clumpy or gooey. This mascara’s texture is a serious dream come true.

For an extra pop this NYE I’m thinking of trying these fake lashes with a pop of glitter. Fun right? Sometimes I’ll even cut the lashes in half for a more flared look.

The Skinny Confidential for Urban Decay.

Soooo, here’s specific directions for makeup:

1.) add primer, foundation, & bronzer ( a little contour never hurt a flea ).
2.) fill in brows.
3.) add red lipstick AND THEN lip liner. I like to do it the opposite way!!
4.) prime lashes, curl, add mascara, repeat.
5.) use fake lashes to capture that flirty, flared look.
6.) add a little silver glitter underneath the lower lash for a total NYE look.
7.) sprinkle a little clear glitter on your chest or mix it with arm/leg lotion for some extra sparkle!

Outfit-wise I’m OBSESSED with the gold-lamé look. It’s sort of 80’s but at the same time classic. By the way, this top isn’t a top…it’s a leotard!! To complete the look I added some Nippies ( because duh ) & a black flowy skirt, & an arm band.

Sooo ta-da, that’s how I get New Year’s Eve ready!

Would love to hear: what’s your favorite NYE look?

CHEERS!
