Preppy Patriotism


New blazer – c/o Style Sofia, New top – NY and C [similar: here, here], shorts – Pacsun [similar: here, here], heels – Vince Camuto, necklace – Bebe, bracelet – Jeweliq, watch – cruise 

July 4th is just around the corner 🙂 So what better time to get a little patriotic with my reds, whites and blues? And did you notice how this pretty blazer from Style Sofia has little cut outs on the shoulder? I always like unique little touches to otherwise classic pieces.

Today I had a fun time at a local water park! I decided to try out a lighter, more summery makeup look and well, it was an experiment. Too bad experiments aren’t always perfect. Two products with notability: I had on some Smashbox BB cream tinted moisturizer which didn’t have very good holding power or coverage though it looked natural enough. I also used my Urban Decay waterproof liquid liner, and it didn’t budge one bit. Cat eye liner for a wild day in the water, yes please! Do you have any good summer makeup products you can recommend? Or do you think water park/beach makeup is silly?

Don’t forget about the JEWELIQ giveaway in the previous post… and stay tuned for more, I literally have 10+ giveaways lined up 🙂

    I love a good cat eye liner! Definitely need to try the UD.I feel like a lot of the BB creams I've tried here are very light in coverage. My favorites are from Lioele (korean brand). It has really good coverage! For the summer, it helps a lot to use good concealer and a light tinted moisturizer. I feel like I get as good coverage results, but my face feels tons lighter!You look great, as always! 🙂
