Wrinkle-Free: Madewell Boyjean in Linen Wash
A classic laid-back style for summer is white linen pants. Perfect for outdoor BBQ’s and days at the beach, linen keeps you cool but it can also turn into a wrinkled-mess.
A great alternative to the usual drawstring linen pant is Madewell’s Boyjean in Linen Wash. These pants are thin, lightweight and comfortable. They will keep you cool all summer and are a great transitional staple for work and play.
Stay crease and wrinkle-free with the linen-alternative.
Valentine’s Day: Free People Breakfast in Bed Romper
Valentine’s Day is a church sanctioned holiday deemed February 14 since 498 A.D. The exact origins of the celebration are somewhat unclear. It is still uncertain exactly who the celebrated saint of love really was.
According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl * who may have been his jailor’s daughter * who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today.
However celebrated, I recommend breakfast in bed. A simple gesture that instantly makes one feel spoiled and loved.
This adorable romper by Free People will keep you cozy and in the mood to be pampered. The material is thin enough to layer and comfortable enough to want to wear all day. So if you do decide to get out of bed (not recommended), throw on some jeans and you are ready to go.
❤Happy Valentine’s Day!❤

Elegant Lashes: Shu Uemura Slim Partial
False eyelashes are a fun way to enhance a look. When shopping at lash bars, natural-looking lashes are hard to come by. Remember, any lash purchase can be altered to fit your specific needs. Cut the length of the strip or give the lashes a subtle trim.
The most natural and comfortable lashes I have found are the Shu Uemura Slim Partial Lashes. They come in three seperate pieces (6-total) to adjust and customize your look.
The small pieces make application simple, no corner-lifts or uncomfortable edges. They enable a natural yet enhanced look by placing the pieces exactly where you need some extra drama. Use one at a time or all three together, the thin pieces will dramatically change the eyes’ expression.
