Stella & Dot Brunch + Nude Lip Perfection


Hello beautiful girls! I hope that all of you are doing well and enjoyed the longer weekend if you were off yesterday for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. 

My bun day continued on Friday and let me tell you...buns are so convenient for working out daily. I just keep my hair in the bun and wrap my silk scarf around to keep the edges sleek. The scarf also helps to keep my hair from reverting back once I start sweating. We had date night at Asian Mint (sushi please!) and then went to Total Wine to check out their French wines on display right now. 

Details on my lip cocktail for today can be found down below, as I wore it on both Friday and Saturday. My earrings are by Bauble Bar, scarf is from J. Crew, faux fur coat is from Piperlime, blouse is from J. Crew, jeans are Joe's Jeans and my flats are an old find from Tory Burch! My Dita Magnifique sunglasses always create quite the stir! If you can find them still and having any desire to own them, my advice is to get them ASAP. The pair I have sold out 2 days after I bought them from Bloomingdales. I linked to two online retailers below that appear to still have them in stock! You will not be disappointed if you add these to your collection of sunglasses. 







Saturday morning started with the Stella & Dot brunch I attended at the Las Colinas Country Club. I loved getting a front row sneak peek at the Spring 2015 collection since my samples aren't scheduled to arrive until today! Check out some of my favorites of the newest additions below! I will be sure to share more once my samples arrive and I am able to style them! I am planning to wear the Birdie necklace this weekend to a luncheon I am attending on Saturday!

My favorite nude lip combo of the moment that I also shared on Instagram! I use MAC's Plum lip pencil, with Hourglass lipstick in Fawn, topped with a little of the the NYX Soft Matte lip cream in Stockholm. Nude lip perfection for my complexion!

For my outfit of the day, I paired a blush top from Ann Taylor that is nearly 5 years old I believe with some boyfriend jeans and a pair of leopard pumps from Jessica Simpson! All of my jewelry was Stella & Dot with the exception of the pendant necklace that I wear everyday! 

Fun collage below on all the selfies that never make it! Thought it would be fun to share a couple of the selfies that don't get posted! I think the general rule is for every one selfie that is posted...there are 50 more that you just weren't happy with for one reason or another! 

The only other thing I did Saturday was accompany hubby to test drive cars! Well, it ended up being one car because that car is pretty much what he wants. We then went to CarMax to get an appraisal done on his current car just to see what we stand to gain if we traded it in this week. After CarMax, we went to The Porch Restaurant for date night x 2. Their black and blue martini (which is off the menu now) is my favorite cocktail. 














Sunday. I started bright and early watching church service in Maryland at Reid Temple. After that, I focused on my weekly chores that I like to get done on Sundays. For a late lunch, babe and I went to Torchy's Tacos! One of our favorite Dallas Eats if you want to check it out. 

The lipstick of the day was Wet n' Wild Sugar Plum Fairy! My leggings are the J. Crew pixie pants. My denim top is an old find from Anthropologie and the necklace is Zara Accessories (also an old find)!







Monday. I used my day of service to gather clothing and shoes to donate to my local homeless shelter. I even had some items that still had tags on them! I am hopeful that the 53 items I am planning to donate this week are a blessing to a lot of people. The only other things I did on Monday was wash my hair and put away all of the Christmas decorations. Finished the three day weekend with a glass of wine...well, a splash of wine. Because we all know wine sends my sinuses crazy. 

Today's lip cocktail was MAC's Lip Liner in Soar with Wet n' Wild lipstick in Wine Room. My shirt is an old find from J. Crew. They usually come out with a similar design every spring!




Until next time...check me out on Instagram!
