Topshop Skinnies and 50% OFF Lucky Brand Boots

nena and co daybag 2 giveaway

I have always stayed away from Topshop pants because they look like they run soooo small and are skin tight.  But after reading several positive reviews about the way the pants fit, I decided to give them a try. I have been looking for a good pair of distressed black skinnies for a while and have fallen in love with this pair by J Brand–BUT that price just isn’t realistic.  Well, these Topshop pair are perfect and are a fraction of the cost.  They are super stretchy and hi-waisted enough to go over any “bumps or bulges”.  I DON”T feel like I’m suffocating in them, which is almost impossible to find in a jegging/skinny jean.  Also, they are available in short if you’re a shorty like me. You can find them for $70 at Nordstrom here.

And these fun, crazy comfy Lucky Brand booties I’m wearing are currently 50% OFF! What the what?!  Sizes will sell out quickly at Nordstrom, so get on it!

My Nude Lip Picks

Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss in Yes You
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres color 102

I’ve always been more of a basic clear lip gloss kinda girl.  But the past few months I’ve been into some fun soft reds like this one.  And more recently I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect nude lip color to add to the repertoire–these bad boys have become my fast favs.

 

Buxom Lip Gloss

I first stumbled upon Buxom lip gloss by accident when I selected it as my “free gift” from Sephora. I became immediately hooked on the Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss in Sweet Thing (hot pink).  Note that it does NOT show up near as birght and bold as it looks in the bottle.  It’s a subtle color with a fab gloss.  I like to wear it on its own or even over another lipstick color to give it a pop.  And just a few minutes ago I noticed that the often sold out sampler pack at Sephora is back in stock and I thought I would share it all with you.

Fall Must Have Booties and Black Denim

love yourself sweatshirt
I’ve decided to be smarter when I shop–more deliberate.  In other words, not just shopping for what’s cute, but shopping for what my wardrobe needs–the classics.  And to get me through this Fall, I knew I would need the perfect brown bootie and a pair of go-to black jeans.  I’ve tried on countless booties and these ones have been my favorite by far.  I love that they give a little extra height with the heel but they are still totally casual.  And these are the MOST comfortable black AG jeans ever, and currently on MEGA sale.  They’re stretchy and I love that the have the cuffed bottoms.  I’m also head over heels for this new Petunia bag from their Cake collection–more details on the bag coming soon.

The Any Occasion Dress: topshop blurred jacquard a-line dress

It’s so helpful to have an “any occasion” dress in your wardrobe–the kind of dress that when all else fails, you know you can throw it on for a wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, special dinner, date night, etc.  And this Topshop blurred jacquard a-line dress has become my current go-to “any occasion” dress. It’s crisp and perfectly tailored. Find dress here
