Happy Friday! I ordered this dress for an event at the end of June but there was no way I could wait that long to wear it! You wouldn’t think a pink pleated maxi dress would be so versatile but this one is. I slipped it on for brunch this weekend (and ended up wearing it all day, definitely best dressed at the grocery store) but it could easily work for a summer wedding, beach vacation and anything else you can think of. It also comes in black and white versions (and is under $50!) so I’m tempted to get it in another color. I’m not sure if it’s because we shot these at sunset or what but mine looks a little more pink, less coral in person, and same for the tassels on the clutch. Have a wonderful weekend!

The sales just keep getting better and better! Everyone’s favorite, the NET-A-PORTER sale, launched earlier this week and the best pieces are selling out fast! There’s a ton to sift through so I selected my favorites here and more below. I always try to make practical sale purchases (although sometimes a fun top or shoe will slip through) and right now that means spring & summer clothes. I’m thinking a cute printed dress, glam beach bag or versatile skirt. This neutral bag would be such a timeless investment but I also love the colors of this miniature version! Nothing motivates sticking to a workout like cute gym clothes — this pair of printed cropped leggings from Sporter would do the trick for me. This little white dress or this printed maxi would be great choices for vacation or summer weekends. And of course I can’t resist adding a few new striped shirts to my expansive collection! Shop more below and let me know what you scored from the sale in the comments!

Having been stuck on the Naked palette for almost a year now, I was excited to switch it up and try out Charlotte Tilbury’s newly released Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadows. What had me instantly hooked is how easy they are to apply — they are the perfect product for summer when you want a little makeup but don’t want to spend a ton of time doing it. They can be applied quickly with fingertips and you only need the smallest amount. Charlotte’s site explains more about the formula: it’s infused with water and vitamin E so it’s hydrating and smooth and has a soft-focus effect (I’ll try anything that says soft focus!) that she says can even be applied sans mirror. Win win!

The six shades are named after women who have dazzled the world with just a gaze and inspired Charlotte’s work. I chose to try Veruschka and Norma Jean. Veruschka is the more dramatic shade, a mossy golden color with shimmer. It goes on pretty sheer but can be layered a few times for a darker, smokey eye. I also noticed that the formula is really easy to blend out so if you accidentally apply too much, there’s no need to start over! With this one I liked applying it all over my lid then using what was left on my fingertip to sweep under my eye. On the other end, Norma Jean is a light champagne color that’s perfect if you want a subtle wash of color or to use as a shimmery base for more dramatic eye makeup. It’s my new favorite everyday shade — just this, a swipe of eyeliner and my new favorite mascara. You’ll also be glad to know the long-wear formulas came off easily with this micellar cleansing water!
