Spring has sprung...

Actually, it is 52 degrees and raining right now.  Yes, even in California the weather can be drab.  So I spent the day drooling lusting after all the fun colors that spring fashion has in stores right now.

One trend I was not 100% I could get behind one is.... colored bottoms.  I tried the red pants during xmas and they sat in my drawer, I have tried the bright skinny jeans and can't get past that 80's feel.  I found the salmon colored capris at the gap and loved them.  I had a hard time pairing tops with them, but I have some great ideas in mind.  So, because I have branched out, I have become addicted.  I bought these:

Thanks Loft for your dressing room!

I kind of love them.  I also really loved the highlighter yellow shirt with them, but I didn't buy it.  Spring and sweaters just confuses me.  So I bought a highlighter yellow tank instead.  

So now...if only the weather would cooperate!

Revlon Lip Butter Review...and SWATCHES!

I have a new makeup obsession.  Ok, it's 2 months old.  BUT, in all fairness, I didn't know I was obsessed until someone pointed it out to me.  I.  Love.  Lip.  Butters.  So much so that within a week of trying my first one I stalked all the ads for Rite Aid, CVS and Target to see if they were on sale so I could buy them all.  I did NOT buy them all, but I did buy quite a few.  I am sure over time I will collect them all.

Theses feel like lip balm but look like a lipstick and gloss.  They are sheer enough that I feel confident pulling off the brightest of colors.  They are so comfortable on the lips.  Typical wear for me is about 3-4 hours while at work and 4-5 on the weekends. (Side note: I am convinced the lighting in my office actually eats the makeup off my face.)  All the colors I have tried have a hint of shimmer (one of them has actual sparkle) but they don't feel grainy. 

For now my favorite is Tutti Frutti.  The perfect wash of orange for spring!

These have actually replaced lip gloss as my daily lip treatment.  I am in love!

I woke up and thought it was Friday. I was too disappointed that it was actually Wednesday to put on my business clothes. So I am in jeans. In a Wednesday. Normally I wouldn't put on outfit like this on display...but... This has to be one of my favorite colors in the world. I think I buy a new coral sweater every spring. And summer.

I have been lusting after the Stella & Dot earrings that all the style bloggers have been sporting. The green drop earrings. Love. I was all set to purchase them but I got distracted. And then last nights I remembered I had these! Not the same but the work for me :-)

Happy hump day

Casual Friday

 T-shirt- Target, Sweater-Target, Skinny Jeans- Tommy Hilfiger, Flats- Tory Burch

I stopped stalked a girl in a grocery store to ask her where she got her sweater.  I chased her down the bread aisle.  I had just been to the gym and I looked a little worse for the I am pretty sure she thought I was going to attack her.  She stammered 'Target' and ran the other way.  I ran to target.  I have been looking for something casual and gray to wear on days that I can't leave my desk because I have so much work to do.

I am a big fan of this style recipe.  Skinny legged jeans, flats, draped cardigan; if my hair were in a sock bun I would be jumping up and down and doing cartwheels.
