fashion // party tee.

what is better than a tee shirt? one you can wear to a party.

I fell head over heels for this dress the second I saw it. it’s right up my alley. simple, yet feminine.

another reason I love it, you can dress it up or down. I wore it to our outdoor bridal shower. don’t send the bridal police on me, I didn’t wear white. dress it up with a pair of booties + a fun necklace. or dress it down [like I did] with a denim jacket + a pair of TOMSregardless you’ll be comfortable.

ONLY FOUR DAYS UNTIL [J] & I ARE ON AN AIRPLANE TO OUR WEDDING!!!

happy thirsty thursday, friends.

when it comes to makeup, I can use all the help I can get.

my daily routine takes a total of 5 minutes, if that. and includes a light concealer under my eyes [& any blemishes], maybe powder, blush, mascara. the end.

so when angie, a mary kay beauty consultant, reached out to me to test some products, I didn’t even hesitate. my favorite: she gave me tips + tricks and was more than happy to guide me on what was best for my skin tone & eye color.

I have a thing for nail polish. and this carefree coral officially tops my list. it may actually be the perfect wedding day shade. I love it that much. it’s bright + beachy, yet pretty + sophisticated.

when it comes to lip color application because I really struggle in this area, angie recommended the “satin lips” set; it comes with a mask and a balm. the lip mask removes that dry layer of skin to reveal a nice smooth lip to apply color to. and also helps keep your lip color on longer. I want to wear much more lip color this summer, so I’m putting this in my order.

she is generously offering 10% off to all of my lovely readers. just mention “chelsea10“. view all the products here. and send her an email [angiestanke@marykay.com] with your order.

my mom is coming to town this weekend, so we’ll be putting our order in together.

follow along with me on instagram to see my makeup adventures.

happy thursday.

when life gives you -12° temperatures [with a “feels like -38º”], you get really bundled up. or you stay inside. I’m sticking with the latter. the weather has been awful. although we’ve not gotten much snow, the low temperatures are enough to cancel schools and keep people indoors.

a chunky, knit infinity scarf is the way to go; it’s on trend + will do it’s job keeping you warm. and thank goodness for embellished + graphic sweatshirts. they’re essential for any cold-weather outfit because they’re comfortable, and they’re fun. also don’t forget to add a little color as to not blend in with the snow.

keep warm!
