Stack it Up....

Adding accessories to any outfit always adds personal style and completes a look. One of our favorite ways to add personal style is by stacking a bunch of our favorite bracelets: small or large, glitzy or rustic. We opt usually to have this be our only add on to an outfit since it does make a statement but we think it is a fun look and a great way to add a little bit of personal flair!

the perfect white blazer...

With Summer having officially started, the season is here where wearing white is a must! The perfect add to any outfit this season whether casual or dressy is a taliored white blazer. You can add this to a dress or skirt OR pair it with a tee and jeans. A clean crisp white balzer is a must for the summer season!

the patterned pant...

We think the look of printed pants with a simple tee is so fun & fresh! Instead of always opting for the printed skirt or dress, why not switch it up and find some fun printed pants that you can dress up or dress down. The key is finding a print that you not only feel comfortable wearing but one that flatters your figure and is the right silhouette (crop, long etc.). Find a pair of pants that has a print you love, add your favorite tee and a little bit of jewelry, and you are good to go!

Show a Little Skin

Summertime is the perfect season to show off your flawless skin.
Don't have flawless skin?
Try out new beauty obsession... SUNDAY RILEY products!
These products were built on the foundation of "Purified, Active + Proven" and their 1st ingredient in almost every product is NV-5 Ageless Complex, which is a blend of 5 Native American Botanicals.
The line was created by Sunday Riley herself based on techniques she learned from her grandmother.

We were first turned on to these products by Patrick Foley (resident make0up artist at Barneys in LA - more to come on him later) during a make-up consultation for my upcoming wedding and have converted to them exclusively!
Other's who love SUNDAY RILEY?
Bazaar, W, Vanity Fair
The Cast of Gossip Girl: Blake Lively loves Juno Oil and Leighton Meester loves Liquid Diet

Here are our SITC picks.
Good Genes is the product that Patrick hooked us with...
Can be used daily or as an intensive treatment. You can actually feel it working.

Benefits include:
plumping fine lines, improving circulation, restoring damaged skin and much much more!

After falling in love with Good Genes Patrick walked me right over to meet Valerie, the Sunday Riley Rep at Barneys in LA. She is gorgeous, sweet, smart and oh so helpful. Here are the products she recommended for my skin that I now use daily.

Cashmere Sunscreen... feels just like is sounds!

Even my fiance loves this stuff (he will never admit it!)

I have never found a cleanser I love. Ceramic Slip Cleanser takes off all of my make-up with ease and leaves my skin feeling great!
This one is for big events (like my upcoming wedding!)

"A powerful weapon against water weight, puffiness, swelling and bloating due to water retention. Temporarily drains excess fluid from the body, providing a more refined silhouette"

Valerie recommended we put this all over and take a brisk walk or drink a hot cup of tea to help with bloat and body firming... perfect for any event!

SUNDAY RILEY has tons of other great products and continues to come out with more! This is JUST a quick list of our obsessions.

It is sold exclusively at Barneys... So get yourself over to a Barneys, shop online or call Valerie at Barneys in LA (310)276-4400 (we'd love if you mentioned SITC!) and get ready for your close up!


P.S. We were not paid for our opinions on these products, although we did ask for a few samples :)

Rock On....

We love to wear chunky jewelry, and our favorite trend right now is jewelry with agate slices. The mix of color and natural beauty of this stone makes it very easy to style. This look works best when you let the bold color of the agate be the focal point of your outfit.

Stripe Happy....

The past few seasons stripes have been everywhere in all types of widths and colors! We still love the stripe tee but with it getting warming outside we can't get enough of striped skirts. Whether you keep it simple it and pair it with a white tee or mix it up with floral top, you can't go wrong this season with a striped skirt.
