#TBT… BOULDER, UT.


I WISH I COULD TRAVEL BACK IN TIME. ONE DAY I HOPE SOMEONE FIGURES OUT HOW TO MAKE THAT POSSIBLE FOR US. IF AND WHEN THEY DO, THIS WEEKEND SPENT IN BOULDER, UTAH WILL BE ONE OF MY FIRST STOPS. ROAD TRIPPING WITH TWO OF MY CLOSEST AND DEAREST FRIENDS TO CELEBRATE THE LOVE AND MARRIAGE OF A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE WHO WERE KIND ENOUGH TO SHARE THEIR LOVE STORY WITH A SELECT FEW OF US. 3 DAYS FILLED WITH SOME OF THE DEEPEST CONVERSATIONS, GREATEST LAUGHS, AND ENDLESS MEMORIES THAT I HOPE TO NEVER FORGET. 












AUGUST 2012

#WIW.. AND WHY?...

SOME OF THESE PIECES ARE NEW, SOME ARE FROM LAST SEASON. I'M STILL CRUSHING OVER THEM ALL- AND HERE'S WHY...
IN 2010, NICOLE RICHIE EARNED HER "WOMAN OF THE YEAR" TILTLE  FAIR AND SQUARE WHEN SHE CREATED HER JEWELRY LINE, HOUSE OF HARLOW . SINCE THEN, HOH 1960 HAS EXPANDED INTO CLOTHING, HANDBAGS, SHOES AND SUNGLASSES. I LOVE IT ALL. I'M WEARING ONE OF HER BEST SELLING PENDANTS- "THE SUNBURST". IT'S SO VERSATILE IN THAT IT CAN BE LAYERED AMONG OTHER JEWELRY FAVORITES, ON ITS OWN, AND PAIRED ALONGSIDE WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT OUTFITS.  THE "SUNBURST" IS AVAILABLE IN COUNTLESS OTHER COLORS AS WELL! 
WHILE VISITING THE  FREE PEOPLE STORE IN BOULDER, CO. THIS MAY, I PURCHASED SEVERAL COLORS OF THIS STRAPPY JERSEY TANK. I WAS IMMEDIATELY ATTRACTED TO IT BECAUSE OF THE PEEK-A-BOO DETAILING IN THE BACK. AND BONUS! IT FIT'S PERFECTLY!
I HAVE SOME GOOD AND BAD NEWS. YOU WANT THE BAD FIRST? THESE PERFECTLY DISTRESSED, JEAN SHORTS FROM J BRAND ARE SOLD OUT. I TOLD YOU, WORST NEWS EVER.. NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS! I FOUND PRACTICALLY THE EXACT SAME PAIR AT REVOLVE. AND THEY'RE EVEN CHEAPER THAN THE J BRAND PAIR! DISTRESSED SHORTS ARE A MUST FOR YOUR SUMMER WARDROBE!


I'M WEARING THE NYX JUMBO LIP PENCIL IN "IRISH COFFEE"… IT'S ONLY $4.50 AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES!


 IF YOU'RE A UTAH LOCAL, THESE DOLCE VITA SANDALS ARE AVAILABLE AT FLIGHT BOUTIQUE, LOCATED IN BEAUTIFUL PARK CITY! OTHERWISE, THE'RE ALSO AVAILABLE AT NORDSTROM, AND CURRENTLY 33% OFF BECAUSE OF THE NORDSTROM SALE! IF A SALE ISN'T ENOUGH OF AN EXCUSE FOR YOU TO BUY THEM, HERE'S ONE MORE REASON.. PAIR THESE SHOES WITH SOME ROLLED UP DENIM, AND YOU CAN WEAR THEM RIGHT INTO FALL!

PRACTICE SAFE STYLING, PT.3. // BED HEAD

IT'S NO SECRET. I LOVE LONG, BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY HAIR, AND I'M ABOUT TO GIVE YOU THE FULL RUNDOWN ON TWO STYLING PRODUCTS THAT I AM COMPLETELY HEAD OVER HEELS ABOUT. GET IT? …MMMK.
 BUMBLE AND BUMBLE ARE INDUSTRY MASTERS WHEN IT COMES TO CREATING AMAZING STYLING PRODUCT'S , AND THEY'RE BACK TO TEASE US WITH THE RECENT EXPANSION OF THEIR ALREADY-AMAZING THICKENING LINE. I MEAN REALLY, A GIRL CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MUCH PRODUCT RIGHT?   

DRUMROLL PLEASE…. MAY I INTRODUCE YOU TO DRYSPUN AND CITY SWEPT. BOTH OF THESE FINISHING SPRAYS ARE PERFECT FOR ALL OF US WHO LOVE AN EFFORTLESS , LIVED IN, BED HEAD, FREE PEOPLE-ESQUE TYPE OF HAIRSTYLE. (OR LACK OF STYLE IF YOU WILL…) 

ONCE YOU'RE HAIR IS COMPLETELY DRY, SPIN YOUR HAIR INTO AN AIRY SILHOUETTE BY USUING DRYSPUN FINISH. THIS DRY SPRAY CREATES INSTANT FULLNESS AND TEXTURE.  IT'S PERFECT FOR ANY HAIR COLOR, BECAUSE ITS COMPLETELY TRANSLUCENT. IT'S GOING TO GIVE YOU THAT WEIGHTLESS, AIRY, WINDBLOWN TEXTURE- AND "SEX UP" YOUR ONCE FLAT HAIRSTYLE. 

AFTER APPLYING DRYSPUN, I FINISHED OFF THE STYLE BY APPLYING THE CITY SWEPT FINISHING SPRAY FROM ROOTS TO ENDS. CITY SWEPT CONTROLS "FLUFFY HAIR" THAT CAN OFTEN PREVENT YOU FROM SEEING DEFINITION/SEPARATION THROUGHOUT YOUR STYLE. IT ENHANCED MY NATURAL WAVE AND GAVE MY STYLE THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF HOLD. 
OPEN TOE LEATHER BOOTIE: DOLCE VITA. NORDSTROM // LIPCOLOR: STILA BELLISIMA. NORDSTROM

AS ALWAYS, I'M COMPLETELY DEDICATED TO HELPING YOU FIND HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES TO STYLING YOUR HAIR. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT PT.1, AND 2 OF MY SAFE STYLING SERIES!
