I decided to do another dress worn as a skirt look, because I really love this shade of purple. Remember the last time I wore this lovely dress to the Simply Stylist event (seen here)? I mentioned before that when you start wearing dresses as skirts (and tops for that matter) you really maximize your wardrobe and increase the cost per wear...and who doesn’t want that?
On another note, I was in New York City for the Style for Hire national conference this past weekend so that's why I was a little lazy on the blogging. I was in extremely informative seminars both days, so snapping pictures and blogging wasn't really possible. I did however take a few snap shots while strolling around the city doing touristy things, which I am looking forward to sharing with you! Stay tuned.

Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess lipstick in Eros (c/o)
Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer (c/o)
My current coffee table reads: Harper's Bazaar, Veranda, Elle Decor, The Little Dictionary Of Fashion
I have been getting a few questions from readers about what kind of beauty products I use, so I decided to share some of my favorites as of lately. I have been testing out the Clinique eye shadow trio (it was a gift with purchase) and I love the three different colors against my skin, it works really good for creating a smokey eye. Also, the Clinique "Even Better Clinical" products are all great, the dark spot corrector isn't just for dark spots; it also works great for creating a smooth and even skin tone. One of my favorite new lipsticks is the Eros shade by Napoleon Perdis, it adds just the right pop of color to any look (as seen here), I know I'll be wearing it a lot this spring / summer. Lastly, I'm loving the Auto Pilot Primer also by Napoleon Perdis, when I put it on my makeup lasts so much longer.
I know it's hard to test out a beauty product for the first time, so I hope you find this helpful!
What beauty products do you love right now? Happy Weekend!

Lipstick: c/o Napopeon Perdis (available here)
I adore this ruffle neck blouse that a got from J crew a while ago. Just seeing the feminine ruffles makes my heart pitter patter. With the perfect pink lip and a bun, this outfit is perfect for a date or just a glamorous night out on the town.
I also had the chance to wear my new "DeVine Goddess" lipstick in Eros that I received when I visited the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy. I just love it! The color is great and it dosn't dry out my lips. To see my post on them click here.

This skirt has been sitting in my closet for over six months with the tag still on it! Now that I'm finally wearing it, I'm wondering what took me so long?! As soon as I saw this pretty red belt (that I have had forever) I thought about pairing them together. They are just perfect for each other; and for the glorious weather we have been having.
Do you have something that has been sitting in your closet with the tag still on?

I find these high-waisted houndstooth shorts to be a bit of a bold statement, first there is the length (or lack thereof) and then there is the pattern (love!), which means one should be extra cautious with the accompaniments. I decided to keep up top all covered up since these shorts are pretty leggie. It's best to explore only one trend at a time in an outfit.

I love the leather detailing on this gorgeous Tory Burch sweater vest. I decided to add a matching leather bag and boots in a contrasting shade. This look was perfect for chilly weather and running around town.

My Friday work look.
I kept this look monochromatic by matching my shirt and coat. I then added a scarf for a touch of color. Pearls with these crisp white pants were my simple, yet much needed accessories.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Wearing neon can be very risky, if done incorrectly you can look like you just stepped off the set of an eighties sitcom. To avoid this little mishap, I recommend pairing it with neutrals. I decided to do some subtle color blocking with my neon yellow jacket and paired it with this blue and white Zara dress. I kept my shoes and accessories simple.
