Hi friends, I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! It’s time for this week’s Friday Favorites post.
I absolutely love eye palettes and I definitely love Bobbi Brown. On a normal day, I don’t really wear eye shadow. However, on special occasions, I’m all about swiping on a shimmery shade or rocking a smokey eye. The Warm Eye Palette from Bobbi Brown is perfect for doing just that. I love that the colors in the palette lend themselves to being played up for a night out or subdued for a pretty day time look.
Lately, I’ve noticed that I keep wearing my same few statement necklaces. I’ve decided it’s time to add a few new ones to the rotation. I love The Houston Necklace from BTB Jewelry. I actually stumbled across this site on Instagram and have been in love with their pieces since. They have a lot of affordable items and they’re all pieces that you can style in multiple ways. I dare you to not find something you love on this site.
So, I’ve started thinking about what to wear to Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties and I think I’ve found my outfit. I’m a dress girl. I love wearing dresses, no matter how cold it is outside. Give me a pair of tights and a heavy coat, and I’m set. I thought I’d switch it up this year. I love the idea of wearing a fancy top with sleek black pants and a standout pair of heels or a bold clutch. I’m loving this top from Tibi, but it’s a little pricey. Don’t worry though, I’ll be checking their website for sales. I also found this similar top from Wyatt on Blue Fly in a price range that will make bank accounts much happier.
Lately, I’ve been so over carrying a backpack to and from campus. It’s bulky and not a great fashion statement, but it’s redeeming quality is its functionality. I often find myself wishing I had a tote to throw all of my school stuff in. Unfortunately, I don’t travel light, so I’ve yet to find a tote that has as many pockets as my backpack, but I’ve also been thinking ahead. As a senior in college with plans to move to New York City after graduation in May, I’m thinking about a functional tote to take to work. This one from Madewell has been on my radar for quite some time. I love the neutral color (it’s also available in black with tan straps) and it’s easily paired with any outfit. There’s also an option to get a gold foil or blind imprint personalization stamp on the bag, just to add an extra touch.
Have any items you think I should know about? Share them with me!
Happy weekend and happy Thanksgiving, friends!
Also, I wanted to give a special birthday shout out and wish my cousin Gemma a happy 13th birthday!! I hope you have a wonderful day. Enjoy 13, love you!!
