June 2015 Beauty & Fashion Favorites

Beauty
Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Video (get it here!)
My absolutely favorite new blush. I normally stick to MAC for blushes because they are the best in the business, but this Urban Decay formula and specifically this color are to-die for. It's described on Sephora's website as a 'soft nude', and I would say it wears pretty true-to-pan. It has been my go-to blush the entire month since I got it.

YSL Pop Water Glossy Stain (get it here!)
I consider myself a YSL lip product connoisseur, considering that I own approximately 12 of them... scary to think about. But in any event, the Glossy Stains have had several remakes and formulations, and this is by far my favorite one. Its dewy and shiny while also staining your lips like the regular glossy stain, leaving your lips feeling hydrated. The color that I picked up is by far the best (201 Dewy Red, pictured left).

Marc Jacobs Brow Wow Defining Longwear Pencil in Ash Brown (get it here!)
I normally stick to my Hourglass Brow Sculptor or my Anastasia Brow Whiz, but I went out on a limb and tried this one. I really like the consistency of the formula as well as its super long wear (this stuff does not move). My only complaint is that this shade is a little too warm for my brows, and the next shade down is cooler, but too dark. I've found I've been mixing this with my Anastasia for the right color as well as an all-day wear.

OPI Nail Polish in 'Cajun Shrimp' (get it here!)
This is an oldie but definitely a goodie. I don't know how I didn't have this color in my collection but I picked it up this month and have been wearing it nonstop on my fingers since I got it.

Slouchy Boyfriend BlazerFashion
Mural Slouchy Boyfriend Blazer (get it here!)
Y'all. I have found the holy grail of blazers. This boyfriend blazer is literally everything I could want in a work blazer, as well as one I could transition to a night out in heels. I have it in three colors (white, black, and the bright red-pink), and I am waiting anxiously for this to come out in more colors.

Tory Burch 'York' Passport Wallet (get it here!)
I always upgrade my wallet every few years because my taste changes and generally what I need in a wallet changes. I used to only buy wallets that snapped closed, and now I won't buy one that doesn't have a zipper. This one has so many credit card slots for all of my things, and the best part? It opens and lays completely flat, which I love. I got it in black so that I could use it with everything, but it comes in a bunch of colors. It also comes with a wrist strap and since it's big enough to fit my phone in, I could take it out with me.

Southern Shirt Company Tribal Tank Top (get it here!)
My friend Bryan started The Southern Shirt Company when I was a 1L (or maybe sometime before), and he is absolutely killing it. I love all of their products and so does every sorority girl in the country. This tank is my newest obsession and comes in a bunch of colors (I own four, oops).

Lululemon Pace Rival Skirt II (get it here!)
So my boss peer-pressured me into joining our firm's golf league part-time. If you know me, you know I don't golf and I definitely don't own any golf clothes, so I went out and bought two of these Lululemon running skirts (since let's be real, I for sure wasn't buying khakis). While I would probably never wear these skirts running (and by probably I mean definitely), if I ever played tennis, these would be perfect. They're also perfect for golf. I wear one with a sleeveless Portofino shirt from express, my Asics running shoes, and call it a day while my office tries to coach me through nine holes of golf.
