I know people hear “crop top” and immediately think “oh I could never wear that”. However, crop tops are one of my favorite articles of clothing. They can be incredibly flattering if worn right. With the ability to draw the eye to your waist in a slimming way, it’s one of my go to tricks. If you’re reading this and your reaction is total disbelief, read on for my tips on how to make this style work for you!
If the LA rain this past weekend did anything, it made me want summer to hurry up and get here. Romantic flowy skirts and crop tops are my jam and I can’t wait to wear them regularly (except when I’m in the office of course). Let’s disregard the fact that I was actually in Dallas for #rStheCon so I only caught the very beginning of the rain storms!
Happy Friday! Today’s post is the first from our honeymoon in Bali! If you haven’t been following along on Instagram, it should give you a glimpse of this beautiful place. As with most of us, I dread packing and wait until the very last minute. I mean I was picking up a few more pairs of sandals (here, here, and here– all on major sale!) an hour before we left for the airport!
One thing I did plan ahead for was eyelash extensions. In general, I’m a girl about minimal makeup (if any) and when I do wear it, I love the natural look. Post getting LASIK early in the year (if you have any questions about it, email me!), I’ve been uber hesitant to put on mascara because it’s tough to take off without rubbing your eye (which you can’t do). So, I went to my girl Mikki Bey for eyelash extensions. She did my lashes years ago and I remembered hitting it off with her like we were besties. Sure enough, it was like no time had passed. It was a lash session and therapist all in one!
So far, I’ve loved them! No mascara needed and I’ve just been putting on a bit of my favorite tinted moisturizer before heading out the door. Lash extensions embody every “I woke up like this” meme there is because… I literally woke up like this. And you know it’s seriously good if I’m foregoing my sunnies to shoot. See below for the before and after so get a sense for the magic Mikki can work on your lashes! I’ve never felt more beautiful (with less effort) and your honeymoon is the perfect time for that.
PS. The last photo is from when Matt and I walked along the beach at sunset – we usually aren’t into such romantic things (probably because we always seem to be with other people) but it was a really lovely moment. And a gorgeous view as well!
