Dear Denim Skirt,
I love you. I really, really do. What do I love most, you ask?
That you are classy, flattering & look nothing like Abercrombie & Fitch.
P.S. Please go on sale soon so my friends can purchase you at an even more fabulous price.
Yes, I just wrote a love letter to my denim skirt. This dreamy, denim number has won my adoration. Let’s be honest, I will pine after pretty much any pencil skirt — they are kind of my thing. But the effortless ease that denim imparts to this classic silhouette makes this skirt a hands-down, must-have in my book. Just as versatile as your I-can’t-live-without-em jeans, a denim skirt can be your saving grace on summer days with sky-high temps. Nothing is worse than tight jeans + torrid heat. So slip on this skirt to sport denim sans sweat.
I must confess that I own this top in 3 colors – it’s just such a steal (thank you Target!) and it goes with EVERYTHING. If I don’t watch myself I’ll have 2 more colors by the end of the week and you’ll see me wearing a different variation every other day. I promise I won’t let my little obsession go that far…
I paired this faded blue top with the skirt to mimic the look of denim on denim – it is my current style craving and …Beyonce made me do it . Need I say more? The other little treasure I found at Target is this dainty necklace trio. Does it get any cuter? I think not.
So now that we have pieced together the quintessential ensemble for the sweltering summer days ahead, we need to make sure that our perfectly painted faces can hold up in the heat as well. I have a simple secret to keeping the shine at bay all day. Get ready for your world to be rocked. Drum roll please…..
My secret is Cornstarch.
Yep, it’s that simple. I stumbled upon this little-known secret while partaking in one of my favorite pastimes, clicking around MakeupAlley.com for makeup tips & tricks. It has now become an ESSENTIAL step in my daily beautification process. I dust cornstarch on my face using a fluffy powder brush post foundation but pre-powder. It will keep you magnificently matte! So pry open that pantry and give it a try. Cornstarch isn’t just for cooking! Your shine-free selfies will thank you 🙂
P.S. If you like this look or if you found my secret tip for shine-free summer days *Pinteresting* , please pin the pics above 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by! Now go don a denim skirt with pride, darling!
