Lovin' Lulu






I have a very close relationship with Lululemon.  After work and on the weekends, you can find me living in Lulu. Above are my current obsessions. I can't say enough good things about the Wunder Under pants/crops. They are so soft and create the best look for your body. All Lululemon clothing is breathable and  wearable beyond the gym.  One important rule of thumb: ONLY wash Lulu clothing with Lulu clothing.....I learned the hard way on this.

Derby Day Delights

Derby Day Delights

Horses, big hats, mint juleps, colorful dresses and a sporting event that is over in minutes...yes I LOVE The Kentucky Derby! I have been to Churchill Downs (not for the Derby) and attending this event is definitely on my bucket list. I have put together an ensemble I would love to wear if I were to go....complete with drink of course.

White Out




Jersey Maxi/SHOPBOP

Spring has officially sprung, so bring on the white!  I'm a BIG fan of the styles above and can't wait to order them all!  There is nothing more clean, crisp and classy than a solid white ensemble in warm weather. I am going to a White Party charity event next week and will be wearing the fun fringe number above. White always looks fab paired with gold/silver metallic shoes, especially cork wedges. Remember to add a statement jewelry piece to give your white that extra pop!

Drink Up, Buttercup!

Warmer temps = patio time!! I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite drink recipes with you guys! I had this little glass of greatness for the first time this summer while in The Hamptons and was floored by how delish it was! I recommend everyone won't regret it!

Start Your Morning Chic!

Bathroom Beauties

Bathroom Beauties by haileejh

1. Le Volume De Chanel Mascara/ 2. Tory Burch Robinson Saffiano Makeup Bag/ 3. Rodan + Fields Sunless Tanning Foam/ 4. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Metallic Cream Eyeshadow / 5. Rodan + Fields Redefine Line/ 6. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit/ 7. Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray/ 8. Laura Mercier Eyelash Curler

I literally need everything shown above to start my morning routine. The Rodan + Fields Redefine Line is a MUST. Now that I am getting older, it is SO important to keep my skin moisturized and wrinkle free! I have never used anything so powerful with such fast results. R + F Sunless Tanning Foam is also a streak free way to give my skin that summer, sun-kissed glow. I sometimes don't get enough sleep at night, so Bobbi Brown concealer kit is vital for under my eyes in the morning. It turns me into a different person in seconds.  I wear Bobbi Brown cream shadow in Goldstone every day morning or night. This stuff honestly doesn't crease or come off without makeup remover. It's gorgeous and I constantly get compliments on it's amazing shimmer.  Since I am big on enhancing my lashes, I use Chanel volume mascara and Laura Mercier lash curler religiously. These are both also found in my purse! And last but not least, I finish my mornings with 3 sprays of Urban Decay makeup setting spray to keep my face flawless and smudge free ALL day (and sometimes night).  These products are honestly my saving grace and I would not be the person many of you see every day with them.

Crazy for Crops

If you've got it, flaunt it! I am CRAZY about the crop top trend this spring/summer.
I can't guarantee that anyone can pull it off like Jessica Alba, but you can definitely try! I like the subtle crop best. Like the pics above, these tops should be worn with high waisted pants, shorts or skirts. Abs should simply peek out without exposing your entire midsection.

Sole Sista
Wedge Flip Flop: Tory Burch
Leopard Pony-Hair Sneakers: Nordstrom (now 20% off!)

Sandals: (similar) Anthropologie

Orange and Metallic flats: (similar) Piperlime
Gold Metallic Cork Wedge: (similar and same brand) Tory Burch
"Life is too the shoes"...this quote couldn't explain my life more! Spring brings us the best and brightest shoes.  I am loving anything bright, snake, neon w/leopard, and metallic. I also believe any shoe with a wedge or a strap around the ankle makes feet look more feminine and lengthens the leg. I have bought the majority of my spring shoe collection at Tory Burch (sign up for emails to receive 10% off) and Nordstrom Rack (shop NOW online!)
