OOTD: Brrrrrr

Michael Kors Moto Jacket

Spring Scarf

Justfab Distressed Jeans

It was a chilly 65 degrees out today. Which means scarves & jackets on the west coast…and bare legs & open toed shoes on the east coast! It wasn’t actually THAT cold, but the skies were so gloomy that it felt even colder. FYI…I was wearing gladiator sandals with this outfit in real life but figured these heels would be cuter for pics. Keepin’ it real, yo. I miss Jesse Pinkman.

Flowy crop top + high-waisted shorts =  perfect pairing. I had this top for a while and couldn’t figure out what to wear it with so I was SO excited to find these high-waisted striped shorts! Oh, and my tote is reversible! Is it just me, or has Justfab been knocking it out of the park lately? Happy Thursday friends!

Spring Makeup Update

Mally Beauty

When Birchbox asked me if I would like to update my spring makeup with a few of their favorite Mally Beauty products, I immediately said YES! I like to lighten & brighten my routine a bit in the spring/summer months so it was the perfect time to play with some fun new makeup. BTW, I was first introduced to Mally products from this lovely lady and her makeup always looks fab. She’s been singing their praises for years so even MORE of a reason to be excited to give Mally a try! Here are the products I used and my thoughts on them:

Mally Makeup

1. Lip Magnifier in Fierce: I usually use a lipliner, TWO lipsticks and a gloss for my “signature” nude lip so using a “liner & lipstick/gloss” in one just seemed too easy…like I missed a step. I have to admit though, it is kind of nice to just be able to swipe on a single product and go! Plus, I LOVE this color!

2. Evercolor Poreless Face Defender: I can only describe this product as a primer for AFTER you’ve applied your makeup. The Birchbox site calls it a powder but it doesn’t really feel/look like a powder to me. But it does give you a matte finish and minimize pores. All you do is press the product into the sponge and then pat/dab it on your skin (do not rub or you will remove your makeup). I’m not sure if it shows in these pics but my skin looked almost airbrushed immediately after applying it. I also used it to touch up later when I noticed a little shine.

3. Cancellation Concealer System: I received the concealer in light/medium but could probably have used their fair compact. The concealer works great for covering blemishes but was slightly darker that I like to use under my eyes. BUT I am OBSESSED with the SUPER soft brush and setting/finishing powder!

4. Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Lucky Penny: Unfortunately I have hooded eyelids (that are getting worse with age) so you can’t really see the liner in these pics! But I promise it is a great neutral coppery/brown color…perfect for daily wear! And a nice alternative to black liner. I also liked that it has lasting power yet was not a bear to remove!

Birchbox also wants YOU to have some fun updating YOUR spring makeup so one lucky Stylish Housewife reader will win a Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick and a High Shine Liquid Lipstick in your choice of color! You must follow The Stylish Housewife on Facebook or Bloglovin’ and leave a comment on this blog post telling me how you follow. Winner will be chosen at random and notified via email. Giveaway ends Wed. April 23rd, 2014. Thank you for reading and GOOD LUCK!

CAbi Tank

CAbi Clothing

I can not get enough of these CAbi white skinnies! Well, they are actually more of a straight leg but are tapered enough to be worn cuffed as well! But this tank might be my new fave piece for spring. I just LOVE the color combo of vibrant orange mixed with the pastel floral print! I wore it casually for a day of running errands but can totally see it paired with a pencil skirt and heels for date night too!
