Marked Cold Shoulder Sweater

My first sweater of the season, woo hoo! As I went through last year’s sweaters I was overall pleased with my purchases, but there are a few brands I won’t buy again. Because I am a business owner I feel bad listing them, but you can trust that I am wiser with the feel of sweaters this year. 

This sweater is well made and thicker, but it snagged on my ring, so I would just suggest not wearing rings with it. I cut the snag and I can’t even tell where I snagged it so that’s really good. This sweater is fully woven across in layers so it feels nice. I love it, but I thought I would give you the info on the snag because I hate it when my clothes are done before I am done with them. Quality is everything to me and I am offended when things ruin quickly, haha! 

For reference I am wearing a size small and there is defiantly room to wear the tank top I didn't feel like changing out of to shoot this look. So, you could go a size down if you are normally a small or you could wear it comfy like me. 

I will be wearing this throw-on to the pumpkin patch, game nights and lazy brunches all season long. I can't believe I am excited for fall, that NEVER happens so I am not sure what the deal is here.

Maita Pointy Toe Flat and a Peplum Camisole

Unfortunately, summer is almost over, but we do have a little more time, so I purchased a tank I can wear now and under sweaters next month. I wish I had purchased like 3 of these back when all the colors were available. I snagged this pair of masculine shoes because I think the style is cute and I am pretty much a flats girl in daily life. 

I like these Vince Camuto's because the color is not my traditional black or brown and the brand is comfortable and reliable. They don't look old and I think they will look great with over-sized sweaters and skirts should I decide to purchase one this season. 

I paired these pieces with my new favorite jeans from White House Black Market, which may be where I need to buy my jeans from here on out because they fit so well. I have shorts from there as well and they are so good.

Fiesta Sleeves

Loving this lace trim top by Topshop. The material is perfect and it's a little cropped which is fun. I paired this top with my favorite blue jean shorts and my favorite summer sandals. I love, love, love the fiesta sleeves on the this blouse because they give it that weekend chic look.

Another reason for purchasing this shirt is the transition factor. I feel like it will do well in early fall with a vest or a light jacket.

Unfortunately, this top is not a part of the Anniversary Sale but it is worth the purchase.

Dermaquest Cleanser Review

I've been getting a ton of compliments on my skin lately and it's because I finally found someone who could advise me on chemicals and proper cleansers. No this sponsored by Dermaquest I just love the cleanser. 

The lady who does my laser Kelli (new lady, not the old lady) is amazing. She not only knows about hair removal but she knows about skin care and gave me some tips and products to test. 

If you have acne prone oily skin, try the following: 

Go through your products and ditch anything that has the listed chemicals: glyceryl sterate se, isopropyl myristate, sodium laureth sulfate, and hydrogenated castor oil 

For acne prone skin, avoid makeup wipes and biotin supplements (yes, I had to let go of my hair helper).

Try my favorite cleanser! I am currently using Dermaquest Peptide Glyco. It's been about 3 months, so it works long term and not just for a few weeks. Oily skin holds dead skin longer than dry skin and the anti-aging component helps my skin cells turn over. I highly, highly, highly recommend it. I am also only about halfway through the bottle, so a little goes a long way. I am using Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion and Cetaphil lotion after my cleanse.

I really hope this cleanser works wonders for your skin like it has for mine.
