Throwback Thursday: Cognac

ikat-and-leather

Cognac is an important colour to incorporate into your wardrobe, especially since we’ll be transitioning into fall fashion! It’s versatile and can be paired with pretty much anything.

Since it can tend to be rather simple, pairing a cognac jacket with something a little more exotic (like these Anthro pants) will definitely liven up your outfit!

What do you guys think of this look? How would you style a cognac-inspired outfit?

Work It Wednesday: Off The Shoulder

It’s warm and sticky out, so it’s time to whip out those flowy dresses and maximize that summer breeze! ☀️

This particular dress from Topshop hit home because of its flattering cut and off the shoulder neckline. It’s classy enough to wear to work and so practical you’ll never want to take it off!

A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Makeup Remover

IMG_2056

So, an eyelash tip I always swear by when I am shooting is to curl my lashes and apply waterproof mascara. The reason behind this is that the waterproof formula dries faster and will hold my curl all day and night. I have straight lashes so this is what I do. However, waterproof mascara is a product for the summer – pools, cottages, etc.! It’s amazing but terrible to remove. I found the answer.

The Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover by Lancome is incredible. I apply some to a cotton pad and gently remove any eye makeup, including that waterproof mascara that is so hard to get off. It removes it so easily that I don’t have to tear at my eyes and lashes, as I find other removers sometimes do.

Fashion Friday: Keep It Casual

5D3_3152

The weather is gorgeous here so it seems fitting to write about an easy way to dress casual, yet chic for a fun-filled weekend.

A subtle addition of colour, a wicked cuff or even some punchy patterns are enough to take a simple outfit and make it stand out. Whether you’re heading to the beach, running errands around the city or even sitting on a patio drinking sangria (I vote for the latter), a striped tank and some boyfriend jeans can make the right statement.

Have a great weekend everyone! 🍹
