Things I’m Loving & Things I’m Coveting

7 May

Express Reversible V-Neck Cami, Mightiest Maraschino Clinique Chubby Stick, Linea Pelle Grayson Bar Crossbody, Fossil Mint CelineYou know those people who listen to their new favorite song on repeat until everyone around them starts to hate that song? Do they drive you crazy? Well I have a confession. I’m one of those people. I’ll listen to a song on repeat until I know all the words and then a bunch of times afterward. And when I’m done with that, I don’t dump it and move on to the next song, no, that song then goes into regular rotation along with the other songs that I obsessed about once upon a time.

And it’s not just with songs. It’s the same whenever I discover something new that I love. And since I’ve been obsessing about these things for a while now, I thought it was time to share these with all of you.

Express Reversible V-Neck Tank
I’m completely in love with this reversible tank from Express. It’s such a versatile piece, and the fact that it’s reversible makes it even more so. It’s a perfect staple piece that anyone could use in their wardrobe, and the fact that it’s both a neutral and a bright in one makes it even better. Especially with the weather warming up I’ve found myself gravitating to it more and more. It looks great tucked or untucked, and both colors work well in my wardrobe. I’m considering picking up 2 more in different colors.

Mightiest Maraschino Clinique Chubby Stick
I found the Clinique Chubby Stick in a friend’s makeup bag, and after trying it on, instantly knew I needed one of my own. It’s a lipstick/lip balm/lip gloss hybrid that takes the best parts of all three and fuses them together. The red is vibrant and bold, but since it’s slightly sheer, it looks more casual than a typical red lip and works for any occasion. And the fact that it’s moisturizing is definitely a plus.

And the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Pen. Apparently I’m the last person to get on this bandwagon; pretty much every one of my friends had one of these before I did. And after using their pencils a few times, I knew that my eyeliner just wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I normally use Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner, and I do still like it, but there’s something just so pretty about the clean and sharp lines of a liquid eyeliner, and this one makes it so easy to do it neatly.

And now a few things that I’m obsessing about that I don’t actually own…well at least not yet.

Mint Face Fossil Celine
When I saw this watch for the first time, my heart may have stopped for a second. The mint. It has a mint face! And I’d been thinking about getting a gold watch for some time now. But then I saw it was rose gold and my excitement waned a little. I’m not a huge fan of how rose gold looks on my skin tone. I don’t feel like it pops enough. But I love this watch. And I’ve been staring at pictures of it online. So I think I might try it on and see how it looks on me and then see if I still want it as bad.

Linea Pelle Grayson Bar Bag
And then there’s this Linea Pelle bag. I’m normally a clutch girl, but I’ve recently rediscovered how convenient crossbody bags are. This bag is the perfect hybrid between the two and I love the unique design. And the blue color is would work well with my wardrobe. So now it’s just a matter of waiting for the next sale, if I can wait that long that is.

For those who aren’t huge colored jeans people, this post is for you. I love colored jeans because you can add a big pop of color to a relatively neutral outfit, or build a more unique color scheme that you may not have been able to do otherwise. Just switch out your traditional blue denim for something colored and I guarantee you’ll fall in love with it.

I also love these flats I’m wearing. I was so sad to find that Betsy Johnson went out of business because her pieces are so fun, but thankfully she’s still doing her store lines.

Guess what? I finally decided I was going to make the jump and splurged on the Micheal Kors watch I’ve been eying for a while. I was iffy about it because I learned that Micheal Kors watches are all made by Fossil, which are typically at a much lower price point, but I just couldn’t find another watch that was as perfect for me as this one was. Plus Amazon was selling it for almost $100 off of retail price which puts it on par with the the other watches Fossil sells when it comes to price.

And I’m glad I did, because I love it to pieces and want to wear it with everything.

Also rocking light mustard jeans that I found this weekend during my labor day shopping expedition. They’re so comfy and cute!

I think there’s something very appealing about an armful of mix and match bracelets, and the addition of a watch makes it all the more interesting. I know, I know, 2 bracelets is not an armful. I need to go bracelet shopping.

I’ve fallen completely in love with large faced watches as of late. A oversized masculine watch on a delicate female wrist? It’s a perfect way to add a little masculinity to a girly style like mine. I’ve recently been obsessing over the gorgeous watches that Micheal Kors makes, and I’m trying to figure out if I’d wear it enough to be worth the splurge.

So when my cousin told me that the watch she had recently bought her husband was being largely unused, I decided to borrow it for a few days and try it out.

I think that this particular watch had a little too big of a frame for me because when I tightened the straps the metal corners of the frame dug into my bones. I think a slightly smaller face would be just perfect.

How do you all feel about large faced watches? Do you know of any other brands or makes of watches that you’d recommend?
