spring things

bag | lip balm | dress | lipstick | sandals | blazer

right around now is when I usually get fully into all things spring. whereas March can sometimes be considered a winter month, April is most definitely in the spring category. this time of year, I go for light – lighter shades, lighter textures, lighter lips.

I’ve added a few things to my closet and makeup drawer in anticipation of the longer, sunnier days. I have this blazer in the original, winter-weight wool and picked it up in this spring-friendly wool/cotton mix in the light grey. I didn’t have any items from Tory Burch, but something about this satchel really caught my eye – perhaps it’s the ladylike top handle juxtaposed with its simple, clean lines. loft plus debuted several weeks back, and while some things have been hit or miss, this dress is 100% a hit. it’s fully-lined and has the prettiest pattern that’s classic but also a little unique. I plan on wearing it on the shoulder to weddings in the warmer months. as for these sandals, they were love at first sight (got them in the mustard yellow). I’m warning you now: I am loving all things yellow these days, so expect to see this color often.

and last but not least, perhaps the easiest way to update your look for a new season is by switching out your lipcolor. this balm is amazing – medium coverage, light as air on the lips, and comes in a slew of colors (I have #12, which is the perfect MLBB and #9, which is a pretty wash of soft fuchsia). bonus: it smells like mangoes! for a full-on lip, I’ve picked up 3 shades of the mac x padma lakshmi collab, in sunset rose (a pretty nude), nude fudge (a soft pink brown that reminds me of the 90s in the best way), and mittai pink, a warm pop of pink. look out for a new-in-makeup post soon.

      Actually, yes! I have small but wide feet, and these were comfortable on right out of the box. I haven’t taken them for a long walk or anything yet, though. I’ll let you know how they hold up!
