A Beautifying Weekend

I spent Saturday afternoon getting beautified with my favorite hair colorist and stylist at Butterfly Studios and then I ventured over to Benefit in Soho to get my brows done!  (Any girl can attest—a day of hair and brows is always a good day!)

At Benefit, I was able to try the new Realsies “Killer Color” lash hugging gel eye liner in dark green—which I loved.  The touch of green is not super noticeable but really brings out the color in your eyes.  It’s an edgy alternative to the black.  The Realsies eyeliner in general is a make-up must have.  It’s easy to apply, goes on smoothly and has lasting power. 

Hope you like the snaps from my weekend and below are some links to where you can buy my summer attire!

Hot child in the city!  This little black dress hugs me like whoa--I must say I am giving Kim Kardashian West a run for her money.  Who ever says white girls don't have curves never met me!  This dress has become one of my summer staples and due to its curve hugging ways, you don't need to add much more.  This dress is simple and sexy: sometimes that is all you need to make a look--and a little attitude of course.

There is no better way to enjoy summer than in this little white dress by Banana Republic.  This is the type of dress you want to wear in the warm weather: it keeps you cool and it's an easy dress to throw on.  In hot weather, one always needs a go-to dress they can throw on without giving it much thought.  As much as I love styling a look, I am also about comfort and simplicity on a day-to-day level.

I paired this dress, with a bib necklace, and my favorite summer sandals by Chloé, although I am thinking I need another pair to finish out the summer. Ha!

I hope you all had a great Fourth of July.  Here are a few snaps from my day yesterday! (More to come on the dress I'm wearing below.)
