Closet Staples: My Shoe Essentials

Spring is around the corner, and that means spring cleaning.

Now I font know about you, but I have WAY too many pairs of shoes.

Like, do I need 14 pairs of old navy flip flops? Probably not, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.

So, as I was cleaning out my closet, I got to thinking what are my ‘must-have’ shoes? Which shoes are my ride-or-dies, my essentials, my go-tos.

And here they are…..

London Street Style

Hey friends!

I adore living in London. This city is so full of life, adventure, and what I notice most- style. The men and women in this town are so impeccably dressed, even when dressing casually they look put-together.

But, like any city, some trends carry through everyone and are fun to pick out.

Wintertime Lip Edit

Fall is my most favorite time of year. Well, Fall and Winter. I couldn’t choose.

I am a sucker for crunchy leaves, crisp air, snowfall, hot cocoa. I know, I know, I’m what most would call “basic.” And guess what? I am basically okay with that.

So, as all basic girls do, we darken our lip colors this time of year. Why? Well because it’s what the fashion/beauty industry tells us to do and damnnit I think I look great in a red lip.

Review: Topshop Lipsticks

Hi all!

I have always wanted to try Topshop lipsticks. The colors and packaging are so fun, so by my assumption the product had to be great as well! I don’t have a Topshop near me, but I love the companies website; its so easy to find what you’re looking for! They have great and realistic swatches for each color- plus they recently came out with limited edition rose gold packaging; which absolutely meant I needed to order a few.

Nevada: This is a gorgeous peach-toned nude color. I was really impressed with the pigmentation, however it did settle into the lines of my lips a little more than I would have liked.

Infrared: I don’t wear oranges that often, but I really like how they look on me. This color is a true orange, it has a slight hint of red, but barely. This color is so immensely pigmented, and smoothes onto the lips very easily.

Beguiled: This color was my automatic favorite. Deep berry tones are my go to lip color, especially in the fall. I know I will get serious use out of this color. This color wasn’t as opaque as Infrared, however it could be built up to a very strong color or worn lightly for a small wash of berry-tone.

Overall, I am highly impressed with the Topshop hippies and highly recommend them to anyone. I ordered mine off of their online site; here.

Have you guys tried these? What are your thoughts??
