I'm all about having amazing skin as you want to look your best! Whether I'm going to an event, doing an appearance, doing a segment, meeting with brands and my team or having date night - it's all about having great skin! With the warm weather that we've been enjoying (although I know that we still have some chilly weather ahead), it always makes me think about ensuring that the winter skin is definitely nothing but a memory before I enjoy warmer temperatures.
Earlier this week, I rocked a maxi as well as flip flops which was a first for this season here in NYC! It felt amazing and made me think that you always have to prep your skin as early as possible as the weather is unpredictable! I'm a flip flop girl and I began thinking of going through my collection of Colin Stuart flip flops which come in a number of colors and is available at Victoria's Secret. Before you rock shorter skirts and a number of footwear options, it's all about making sure your skin is ready and knowing what your go to's are to get your skin ready as well as to keep up with maintaining it!
GET THE BEAUTY LOOK
Roll over the images above to find out why I am such a fan of these items from Me Smooth, Waxelene, The Body Shop, Molton Brown, Bobbi Brown and my fave - Palmer's. A number of these items have been my go to for a number of years and there are some that are new to me but I think are vital to getting your skin ready for the season and to keep it looking great.
Today's spread has a lot going on in but it's serving as my personal check list and as always, you can click the links to see more about the pieces that I have selected. On Sat, I celebrated my 30th birthday and I'm actually in the Parker Ruffle Racer Top (you'll also see it in my reality episode as well which comes out later this fall) which is definitely a great staple year around but I love the idea that as the weather gets cooler, I can throw a blazer on! The cord blazer is a must in my wardrobe I love the texture and I love the details of it as well! I have a black blazer that has been so handy when I needed to round out my look. When it comes to boots, I tend to go for the over knee but every now and then I like a bootie and these are perfect. I have a few pairs of Colin Stuarts within my closet and I definitely want to check these off my list! I just got a new bag for the season and it is in fact the Prudence from Cole Haan! I love that it has a slender look but still holds my Jimmy Choo wallet, Flip, Blackberry, etc and the leather details - AMAZING! Finally, we have the Hudson Legging Jean, I don't have these yet but when I hung out with Casey, Hudson Jeans New Media & PR Coordinator at Hudson, (you can see a pic of her and I on the press page) in Vegas at the ENK Show, she was wearing them and looked stunning - so I need to get them! Of course I'm wearing a fab pair of Hudsons now that I have not been able to stop wearing for awhile now! Together this look can be worn to be very chic whether I'm at the runways, in the showrooms or just running around. Apart, they become great staples that will help in building your fall wardrobe! What are your key pieces for fall and how are you going to make it all come together?
