OOTD: Farmer's Market

Friday, August 28, 2015

I love when Devin has the weekends off and we are able to take a trip to our favorite farmer's market in the city (which is pretty rare with his busy chef schedule)! We love picking up fresh produce, homemade jams and a bouquet of flowers - and usually a warm baked good or crepe to munch on as we cruise the veggie-filled aisles.

I never want to look like I spent loads of time getting ready when I'm at the farmer's market. I love to wear my hair in a top knot, find a cute romper or sundress, put on some comfy shoes and pick some simple accessories. I love adding a little Kendra, Kate and Tory into my casual outfits.

Speaking of Kate Spade, how adorable are these Kate Spade Ziba Sunglasses? And what's even better...you can get them with your prescription! My biggest struggle since I started wearing glasses and contacts a few years is finding a CUTE pair of prescription sunglasses. Salt City Optics has great brands like Kate Spade, Ray-Ban and TOMS. If you're in the market for a new pair of prescription or non-prescription sunglasses, check out Salt City Optics before the summer is over!

My New (and Improved) Beauty Routine

Thursday, August 27, 2015

SKINCARE
Never skip on the skincare! Taking good care of your face has its long-term benefits, but it'll also help to keep your makeup looking better and lasting longer throughout the day. I like to keep my skincare routine simple: a cleanser, facial wipe and all-in-one moisturizer. This routine keeps my skin glowing and minimizes the size of my pores!


MAKEUP
In the hot humid summer months less is more when it comes to makeup. I've been sticking to BB creams instead of high coverage foundations and contouring with cool and warm shades of brown. I've also been straying away from my famous winged eyeliner (gasp)! I've simply been using a MAC Paint Pot (featured in my Girls' Weekend Getaway Essentials) and a couple coats of mascara. 
DiorSkin BB Cream (I use the matching concealer, too)

Rustic Chic Wedding Inspiration

Monday, August 24, 2015

Devin and I have decided to have a "rustic chic" wedding to go along with our backyard barn wedding with shades of blushes, grays and gold tones. Of course, I've been scouring Pinterest for barn wedding ideas, and I'll admit I've already become overwhelmed! Below are some of the ideas I've narrowed down to: Garden rose & succulent bouquets, handmade wooden signs, and a flowing wedding dress.

But I'd love some input from my readers! Have you ever been to a barn wedding? What was your favorite part? What didn't you like? If you have some ideas you think I should consider for my wedding, leave them in the comments below!

Had such an amazing time with my girlfriends up north this weekend! Nothing like a much needed girls' weekend before the summer ends.
