    I enjoyed a quick trip to Dallas and back, with a lot of fun packed in. I always regret leaving without seeing more of the city, but the parts I do see, I really enjoy…

1239867 All dressed up from lovely (and dreamy!) finds at MATCHESFASHION.COM. One of my must-dos when I went to London for the first time earlier this year was to pop into the brick and mortar version of this online destination. It didn’t disappoint! But because a hop over to London doesn’t happen all that often (May was my first time there!), I check online for their new arrivals often. Some of my favorite purchases have been at their site (this little Chloe bag, which I could never find anywhere else, and more recently, this blazer which I get compliments on every time I wear it!).

Sharing more of my recent picks below! Thank you for visiting!

Fall Beauty

st-john-dress-madewell-cardigan-1st-john-dress-madewell-cardigan-2st-john-dress-madewell-cardigan-3chanel-fall-makeup-beauty There’s something about new makeup that will always make me feel giddy with excitement. Here’s my current face routine:

  • Foundation: Giorgio Armani ‘Lasting Silk’ UV SPF 20 in 6.0. I’m also interested in trying their Luminous Silk version to see if it makes a difference for me. I love that a little goes a long way with this foundation.
  • Contour: Charlotte Tilbury ‘Filmstar Bronze & Glow’ (I only use the bronze portion to lightly add definitation along my lower cheek and jawline). It lasts a really long time!
  • Blush: Giorgio Armani ‘Fluid Sheer’ in No. 11. I think this color is beautiful – I haven’t tried any others because I’m obsessed!
  • Concealer: Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer in Almond. I thought it was crazy to buy this $70 concealer but instantly fell in love with how it made my eyes appear so much more awake. Plus, I’ve been using the same tube for 1.5 years! My previous concealer would last only 2 months so the math works out hugely in favor of this expensive one. (Now, whether or not the product should still be in use after over a year is a question for the experts…)

Next up, my summary for eyes and lips! But here’s a teaser: my new Chanel eye quad (the only eye shadow that doesn’t get greasy on my lids by the end of the day) from their latest Fall collection!


Cardigan – Madewell ($98 here)
Dress – thanks to St. John (here | similar styles for less priced high to low: here, here and here)
Loafers – Chanel (loafers are my latest obsession! my favorites at every price point: here, herehere and here)
Purse – Celine
Sunglasses – Fendi (here)

Lipstick – Chanel “Rouge Tentation” (here)
Lip pencil – Chanel “Seduction” (here)
Eyeshadow quad – Chanel “Candeur Et Experience” (here)
