Everyday Women. Extraordinary Style.
Like many of you, I’m juggling a house, husband, kids, and a full-time job. I’m also struggling with many of the same issues. The biggest…? Finding time to tackle it all, and realizing it’s okay to put your needs first once in a while.
While I look far from perfect most days, I have perfected the art of easy, attainable style for busy, everyday women. It comes down to having the right pieces in your wardrobe and knowing how they work best on your body.
It is my mission to not only remind you that it is okay to take time for you, but also to help you achieve amazing style that is simple, affordable, and works for your size, shape and lifestyle.
Everyday women can have extraordinary style!
Let me first say, these picks are not coming from me. I’ve picked up a lot of makeup tips and knowledge over the years, but I am, by NO means, an expert.
These pro picks are coming straight from makeup artist extraordinaire, Texas de la Rosa!
I have worked with him on several “San Antonio Magazine” shoots and this guy is the real deal. I have a lot of respect and admiration for him.
Anywho, I cornered him on a recent shoot and asked him to share some of his expert tips.
Namely, I wanted the full scroop on makeup brushes.
He said there are FIVE brushes every woman should have:
Mac 103 (I couldn’t find this one) for contouring cheekbones
I also asked about concealer – This is one of his favorites: Mac Studio Finish Concealer
Have you scoped out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale yet??
If not, whaaaaat are you waiting for? There is only one week left! (Sale ends August 3rd).
Here is what I bought online and I’m in LOVE with everything I purchased!!
I LOVE the color of these pumps. Very on trend for fall. The heel is manageable and I find them quite comfy. I’m envisioning these with skirts and tights for fall!
(NOTE: This shoe is not great if you have thick ankles since the ankle wrap would highlight that problem)
This sweater is a bit on the pricey side for me, but I really love the draping in the front. I can totally see this with dark blue or black skinny jeans, ankle or knee high boots, with button down or turtleneck underneath.
The sweater will be my go-to, no brainer, pulled together piece this fall!
(NOTE: If you are really busty, the draping might exaggerate that. If you have a little belly, I would steer clear of wearing white underneath, and choose black or gray instead)
3) Cara Spike Hinge Cuff, $18
I bought two of these to stack. They are pretty heavy and surprisingly good quality for the price.
(NOTE: these are on the small side and are ideal for smaller wrists. If you have really thick wrists, may not work)
As always, thank you for your support! Erin xo
