I’m back with one of my summer must-haves: a little white dress! This dress is so perfect. It’s slightly boho, super airy — a necessity for these 90-degree days — plus it’s under $25. I wore it for the first time with these sandals, a sample sale find from a few seasons ago. It will also make a cute coverup for upcoming beach days. Shop more of my little white dress picks below!

my favorite mascaras

Maybelline mascaras are my go-to at the drugstore. With its super curved brush, Lash Sensational is a dupe for another one of my favorites, Roller Lash. It separates lashes to create a ton of volume and I like that there’s a non-waterproof version — so much easier to remove! Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Lashes is the most dramatic of the lot. You get it all with this one — volume, length and super dark pigment. I found it transferred a bit the first time I wore it but a good way to stop mascara from transferring onto your eyelids is to use a primer and long-wearing eyeshadow to prevent oily lids. I thought mascara primers were a big hoax until I tried the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer — it’s incredible! A couple coats under any mascara you own will make will make lashes look noticeably more long and voluminous (and that’s why it was one of my date night makeup picks). Benefit Roller Lash gives just enough length, separation and curl to make it perfect for everyday. The wand is a little slimmer than the Lash Sensational which makes it easier to apply without smudging — especially on the lower lashes. LORAC Pro Plus Fiber is made with nylon fibers to give the length and volume of faux lashes. I’ll throw this one in my bag if I have plans after work because it’s really buildable on top of any other mascara.

Practicality has never been the driving force in my style which, among other things, led to ballet flats being my shoe of choice on rainy days for about as long as I can remember. All this to say that I’ve finally found a pair that won’t ruin an outfit — the Lacey boots from Bernardo. Just add a classic trench coat (also love this black trench) and an umbrella big enough to protect your hair and bag.
