‘Tis (Almost) the Season

Beverly Hills, CA

The sun’s out, the weather’s heating up, all signs point to one thing: wedding season. And while in years past, I’ve had one or two to attend, this year, I have a lot more! From beach weddings to vineyard celebrations to grand escapes in Tuscany, my wedding season itinerary is fully packed. And while I’ve never been much of a planner, I’m starting to get my reception looks lined up because let’s be honest, the best styles get scooped up the fastest.   

This dress by Morning Lavender is a gorgeous option for a spring or summer celebration. Not only does it work well as a guest outfit for a variety of wedding venues, but it is also perfect for a bridal shower. I mean, doesn’t it look like it was just made for a bridal brunch or tea? I adore the delicate lace detailing and flattering tiered silhouette. When it comes to shoes, these strappy Something Navy pumps add a bit of extra feminine flair—and if you can stand being in high heels all evening, they’re truly perfect. The best part of this ensemble? It’s very affordable. It’ll give your wallet a much-needed wedding season break. Amen!

MEET THE Snakeskin Print Collection BY Ann Taylor

Beverly Hills, CA

IMG_7368.jpg

Last week Ann Taylor launched a limited-edition Snakeskin Print Capsule Collection, and I adore it. Including a pair of shoes, several tops, a midi skirt, and a belt, this collection is a refined approach to the ever popular animal print. So if you're like me and you're constantly looking to give your office outfit a boost, these pieces are just perfect. Not too bold or overpowering, I love that it gives me the ability to try on the latest animal print trend, without feeling like I've abandoned my personal (more classic) style.

I am wearing the long sleeve Snakeskin Henley Blouse with a pair of ripped skinnies and some fun accessories: a velvet clutch, slingback pumps, and some femme hair barrettes. I love it because the lighter, breezy fabric makes it a great option for spring and summer! Which is your favorite piece from the collection?

SWEET SHEA BUTTER

The Body Shop

I've always loved shea butter. Rich in vitamins, it keeps me hydrated from head-to-toe. And at The Body Shop, they've sustainably sourced Community Trade Shea butter from The Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association in Ghana since 1994. Women from the community handcraft 390 tonnes of Shea butter for The Body Shop every year using an 18-stage process passed from mother to daughter for generations. Not only is it an incredible process, but it empowers women, their families, and their communities.

From lip balm to hair masks, The Body Shop utilizes shea butter in just about every product you can think of! My go-to is their Shea Body Butter. It smells like a dream, it keeps my skin hydrated for hours and hours, and you can even use it in your hair! Do you guys have any DIY shea beauty recipes you follow? I may get crazy and try one soon (despite the fact that I am really not the DIY type).
