36 Weeks

I have a little bit of catching up to do as I'm well past 36 weeks at this point, but still want to share! 

I have two LBMD, aka little black maternity dresses, that have been heavily utilized throughout my pregnancy, a lace option and this asymmetrical selection. As you may know, LBDs are such a good blank slate on which to build an outfit. However, with temperatures high and energy levels low, I kept this look super simple with just a black handbag, a super-statement necklace, and some nude flats. I finished it up with a coral lip and my favorite sunnies. Easy chic.

Second Wedding Anniversary

Believe it or not, my fella and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary this week. I cannot believe how quickly the last two years have flown by. I guess it's true what they say; time flies when you're having fun!

I couldn't help but be inspired by my wedding when I got dressed on our anniversary so I put on this white eyelet dress and a coral blazer on top. I wore my nude d'orsay flats, carried a rose gold clutch, and donned a little coral lipstick to accessorize. The finishing piece was the date bar necklace engraved with our wedding date, of course!

Sunscreen That Does Double Duty

One of my mom's best beauty tips is to keep your skin protected from the sun. This is something I like to take seriously, even though I do love to feel those rays on my face. However, my skin can get quite oily at times so I always hate putting greasy sunscreen on my face, even when it's specifically for that purpose. So when I was given the opportunity to try out Colorescience's Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush with SPF 50, I was pretty excited. As it turns out, this handy little tube just might be one of my new favorite additions to my beauty routine as well as my handbag.

This highly refined tinted mineral sunscreen has both UVA and UVB sun protection. After applying the scentless formula it doesn't come off on your clothes, is water resistant for up to 80 minutes, and won't irritate your eyes when perspiring. But the best part is that it's all contained in a handy self-dispensing and refillable powder brush. With a few swirls of the brush all over your skin, you'll be set for two hours of sun protection before you have to reapply. It's sunscreen made easy!

I can tell this is going to be such a life saver as I transition into motherhood over the next several weeks. Who knows how much time I'll have to put myself together each day so I'm sure I'll be grateful to have in my bag a time-saving product that not only evens my skin tone, but will protect my skin from potential sun damage at the same time.
