Lately, I have been coming out of my black and grey cocoon, and adding  some pops of colour to my life.  This look is a big pop!  When I first started to accessorize this dress, I was grabbing subtle and neutral items but I felt like this dress could handle more.  So instead I grabbed this big orange clutch (that is made of the most buttery soft leather) and some shiney gold things.  I even opted to add in one more bit of colour with this pretty pink matte lip colour by Lise Watier.  Sometimes a girl just needs to stand out.

This dress though!  It fits like a glove, is soft and stretchy, and very flattering on my curves.  I was recently introduced to this LA and London designed label, Voodoo Vixen.  They are known for their vintage inspired designs and definitely cater to a curvy gal (yes, they even come in plus sizes!)  This green hue is a red head’s dream come true.  It might just be the dress I’ll be wearing to celebrate my second Mother’s Day as a Momma.

So, yes…here I am doing an outfit post for the first time since having Maddie.  Kinda funny that just last week I was telling someone I was definitely done posting outfit pics {other than the odd snap on Insta}.   I guess never say never.  This outfit just seemed worthy of sharing with y’all.

Lately I’ve been crushing on kimono inspired pieces.  They are flowy and easy to wear, plus they can conceal bits of my body I’m still trying to get used to.  This one was a steal but still has luxe look to it.  I’m loving it paired with this casual boyfriend style chinos and also over dresses.  It’s a Summer trend that I actually find wearable.

For Fall {don’t kill me for saying the F word right at the beginning of Summer}, matte lips are what we will be seeing loads of.  It’s a bit of a throwback to the 90′s.  I still vividly remember lathering my lips with the darkest colour of crimson I could find and then caking on pressed powder to achieve the “perfect” matte lip.  Well thankfully we’ve moved past that and now have beautiful matte options.  One of my top picks is the Lise Watier Feline Velvet Lip Lacquer.  I like that it looks and feels smooth on the lips.  It will be available in London Drugs starting in August.

 

 

With the official arrival of Summer I have switched gears with my beauty routine.  I’ve been busy testing new products to find some new favorites for this season.  Beautiful glowy skin is must for me.  Lush Herbalism has been a perfect daily cleanser for me.  I love that it gently exfoliates too.  Pretty skin high lighters, a water resistant blush, along with a bold liner, and natural hued nails and gloss complete my beachy look.  We all know that sun protection is a must but don’t forget about your pout.  On sun soaked days be sure to layer on some sun protection under your gloss.  For Summer, I’m a sucker for some fabulous over-sized earrings.  Large hoops or a big metallic drop earring give instant glam to your go-to sundress.
