In the Details


If you really want to personalize a look, there is no better way than accessorizing. Simple things like a scarf, a necklace, or a belt can transform an outfit into many styles depending on what you pick. I added a few details to my outfit today that include: a vintage scarf (worn in my hair), a vintage bracelet worn with my Michael Kors watch, Essie nail polish in "Need a Vacation", and Bobbi Brown blush in peony. I picked up the scarf and bracelet at the Rose Bowl flea market this past Sunday. What a great place to find such unique items. I wish I could go every month! I also recently got this Bobbi Brown blush and it has been my favorite for a fresh summery look. Even if I am not wearing any makeup, I love to put a little on my cheeks and lips to add some life to my face. And yes, I did say "to my lips". I add it with a little bit of chapstick and the color turns out like in the first picture.

I do sometime the opposite with my lipstick and use it as a blush ;-)
And your nail polish is so cute and girly!

i really like the blush pink makeup you use for this post - especially when paired with your taupe-grey top. i really like details posts because sometimes we can get lost in an outfit. its the accessories that really make it personal and special.

with love,
