Spring is definitely in the air! Well, at least here in sunny Scottsdale. All sorts of creatures are out, the temps are going up and we see the sun earlier and later, finally. This all means 110F is right around the corner, but I’m willing to overlook that in lieu of excitement for ditching my winter gear and bringing in spring colors!
Here’s what I’m loving right this moment.
1. Anthropogolie: Caridad Ruffled Dress $198.00
OMG I love this dress! I definitely fill it out more than the model on the website and I think that’s a good thing. The bust area is not sewn in, which means it doesn’t stay up unless you have boobs. We have two weddings to attend in a few weeks and I can’t wait to wear this to one of them! I’m thinking I’ll wear either navy or black pumps, I have a black pashmina (so if it’s cold I’ll wear black pumps) and maybe purple studs in my ears (we will see once I put the look together if it’s cute or not) as I want another color accent. You bet I’ll post pictures after the wedding(s)!
2. Anthropologie: Level 99 Sailor Shorts $78.00
I was at Anthropologie this weekend falling in love with item number 1 on this list and I saw these shorts. I think they’re adorable and now, in hindsight wish I took the time to try them on. My only concern is my legs are short/sturdy and they might accentuate the negatives instead of flatter my positives.
3. Maybelline: Dream Fresh BB Cream $7.44 (at Target)
I have never worn a bb cream and now that I think about it, I haven’t worn foundation either. I was curious to see if I would like it, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something I was unsure of. I usually use a powder from Bobbi Brown, a little blush, lots of mascara and call it good. When I saw someone rave about Maybellines Dream Fresh BB Cream I made note to pick it up next time I went to Target. Based on the shade on the bottle I grabbed the medium hue. I layer it on after I use my daily moisturizer and it evens out my skin tone and provides a bit of coverage. It’s definitely not a foundation (not that I would really know how to compare). It’s light and does well with a dusting of powder on top. I’m totally hooked! And I just noticed on their website that it has SPF30, I had no idea and that’s a huge selling point for me.
4. Bath & Body Works: Lemon Mint Leaf $12.50
How freaking cute are these mason jar candles from Bath & Body Works? They totally hit the mark this spring! The lemon mint leaf is an excellent scent for the kitchen (where we predominately have a candle burning). It’s clean and cute and burns for 30-40hrs.
5. Bath & Body Works: Oceanside $20.00 (or 2 for $22.00 RIGHT NOW!!)
These are by far my favorite candles ever! The scents are fabulous and make your home smell wonderful. It’s a sad day when our candle dies. In our home we have two different scent preferences: I am a huge fan of fruity, coconut smells and my man prefers a more relaxed, less in your face smell. I’m okay with either so we lean towards his taste and Oceanside fits right in. It does get to be a bit too much (for me) after a while and I end up blowing it out. I highly recommend finding your scent, buying during their sales which seem to happen all the time and have your home smelling delightful all day every day! The 3-wick candles last for 30-45 hours.
