Today's Summer Details

A few summer details today: 1) Banana Republic Striped Timeless Tee (similar here and here) has been a weekly go-to, it's versatile enough to wear with a number of different outfits. It goes with casual jeans, shorts and capris, you can also dress it up with a pencil skirt and pumps, or layer a blazer.

2) Nude pink sunglasses are one of my weaknesses, these are some old ones by Chanel that come with small frames (rare find). Continuing the nude-pink theme,  3) Tom Ford Tawny Pink Lipgloss and 4) Spanish Pink Lipstick are staples for the perfect nude pink pout. I love that there's a hint of nude and peach in these but they don't wash out my complexion. The lightness contrasts with a tan but it's not too sharp. (Tawny Pink looks like it's sold out online, Rose Crush is very similar.)

For the perfect glow 5) Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders are my favorite powder highlighters, I keep reaching for them and they seem to last forever (even with regular use I have barely made a dent). Luminous Light is shown above. Radiant Light is another favorite. Or if you want more options check out the Ambient Lighting Palette. They give the perfect candlelit glow.

6) Chanel Holiday Le Vernis is an oldie but goodie. I'm surprised it's still available since it was released quite a while ago. I rarely match tips and toes with the same colors but for this one I'll make an exception. See it compared to Chanel Mirabella.

I'm a minimalist when it comes to jewelry. I love the looks my friends can create with creative layering but I always feel like I can't pull it off. For me, some simple layering includes stacking simple detailed pieces. I've been loving my 7) Celine Rose Gold knot cuff stacked with 8) Gorjana Mila Hexagon Cuff (c/o) and any 9) Hermes Enamel Bracelet for some color. Gorjana has great visuals for bracelet layering ideas that are easy to pull off. I've been very inspired from browsing their site - be sure to check out the Gorjana x Happily Grey collaboration with curated picks.

I'm obsessed with open toe sandals, these 10) Banana Republic tan sandals fit perfectly and didn't break the bank. It sold out online months ago but I've spotted them instore.

Last but not least, I've fallen head over heels with 11) Tom Ford Mandarino di Almafi which is an extension of the Neroli Portofino line. I'm not typically a fan of citrus orange scents on me (I adore them on others). The ones by Tom Ford are the only citrus scents I feel like I can wear. It's a refreshing summery fruity scent. My local Neiman Marcus sold out of it but they were able to order it for me. More detailed review to come soon.

Today's Non-Beauty Haul Items

Picked up some good non-beauty items today. Stopped by J.Crew and found some really cute patent-leather belts that will go well with some of my shirt-dresses. Might go back for the black patent one.





This is the cute ruffle-front shirt-dress from Banana Republic I got a couple days ago which I plan to wear with my new belts.



I absolutely adore Tommy Bahama's Scented Candles in Pineapple Cilantro & Crackled Coconut. Looks like they redesigned the packaging on their Home Fragrance Collection and added a few more scents! These classic tins were $14 each. They also have larger tins, pillars, and glass poured candles.



And I've saved the best for last. I went crazy looking for these Limited Edition Coconut M&Ms after my friend posted a comment about these! Apparently they were released in select stores in early August. So . . . 5 large retail grocery chains, 6 gas stations/liquor stores, and one 7-Eleven later, I finally found these at Circle K and stocked up (yes, I know it's quite crazy that I would spend that much time and effort just for candy). The Strawberry Peanut Butter M&Ms I found at Walmart.
