style + bodysuits

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven

Happy Friday everyone. I have decided I'm just going to be sleep deprived for the rest of my life. This commute is a killer, plus I've been hanging out with friends after work so I don't even get to the train until much later. Last night I actually stayed with a friend in the city, and I got to wake up at 8 in the morning for work. It was unreal. I usually wake up at 5:45!!! 

I don't have a full day of work on Friday's (gamechanger), but I'm staying in the city for the weekend, so I have to find something to keep me occupied until my friend gets of out work. 

Aka shopping.

I gave away all my college going out clothes, and now I'm on the hunt for post-grad options. Goals include a leather mini skirt, lace camis, and bodysuits. I've never worn one before, but today is the day for experiencing new things.

I went to a friend's birthday party a couple of weeks ago, and one of the girl's there had on this amazing black bodysuit from American Apparel with a pair of high waisted skinny jeans. Literally perfect outfit. It was very simple but crazy cool. Definitely a day to night type of outfit too; converse or sandals in the day, booties at night.

I'm trying to recreate that outfit. 

Based on my research (webshopping), the best places to find cute bodysuits are:

Zara

Bodysuits are great for layering under skirts, shorts, and jeans. You can wear them for going out as well as hanging out. 

Have y'all worn a bodysuit before? Any other places I should look?

Have a great weekend! 


beauty + an ode to false lashes


Let’s talk falsies.

The lash kind.

Last Friday, I was bored, and when I’m bored, I usually end up spending money on something dumb, and definitely something I don’t need.

Like false eyelashes!

Just the strip kind. Though I do have my eye on lash extensions (hit a girl up if you have any opinions/fave places to get them done, slash if you have a hookup cause #broke). I'm very into lashes. I tint my lashes every six weeks, use growth serum at night, and mascara is 100% the beauty product I'd bring with me on a desert island. I'm very proud of my lashes.

But sometimes, you just gotta try something new.

If you go to Sephora and buy a pair of false lashes, they can put them on for you for free! Well, technically free, it’s a complimentary service with purchase, but still!

I’m pretty proficient in applying individual lashes, but I’ve never tried the full strip kind. I also had a stroke of inspiration when I wasn’t at home, so getting them done by a professional was the right move at the time.
I went straight for the inexpensive lash row at Sephora, and after minuts of deliberating, I finally chose the Quill Luxe False Lashes. They were big, but not too big, fluffy and voluminous, and probably the most natural while still making an impact.

Basically, these lashes are a gamechanger. 

I intend to try out a bunch of these different Luxe False lashes, since I've noticed they have a larger variety on the website than in the Greenwich store, but I'm a huge fan of the Quill's. They're reusable, too, which makes it so much more worth it. 

The Sephora cosmetician was the best. So friendly, complimentary (I don't care if they're being fake, I like compliments), and made sure my lashes looked perfect before I left.

I've already worn the lashes twice since I've bought them (I have them on right now), and I can definitely tell I'll be experimenting a lot more with falsies in the future. One of the best things about them is that it's not completely necessary to do a whole eyeshadow/liner look when I have them on. Obviously I still put on a stupid amount of eyeliner when I'm going out on the weekends, but for work, I can just pop them on and I'm good to go.

What do y'all think about false lashes?

lifestyle + packing an overnight bag


I spend at least one night a week with my friend in New York City (usually Friday or Saturday night, depending on when we want to go out), so I’ve become an expert at packing the essentials for an overnight getaway. 

style + the slip dress

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven

Slip dresses are ridiculously hot. Also, one of the most effortless trends out there. 

Like, "Hello, I just rolled out of bed with my messy waves and sexy slip dress. I'm just going to put on some heels now."

Slip dresses have taken the boudoir-chic trend to the extreme. I love it. They're supposed to be loose and slinky, and right now it's so hot in the city that this seems like the perfect type of dress to wear!

Pair with ankle strap heels or over the knee boots. For jewelry, opt for a choker or long, delicate necklace. 

I currently do not possess a slip dress, or else I would be wearing it to go out tomorrow night. Le sigh.

Happy Thursday!
