Leopard Scarf and a Grey Dress

It got warm again in Baltimore so I'm wearing a short sleeve dress that I really love, but I have a long sleeve alternative for you since it's almost November. Old Navy has great jersey dresses that are really soft and comfortable. I stole this look from @cmcoving one of my favorite instagrammers. I love the grey with the leopard and peep toe booties are so much fun. Here's the look and all the details.

Shop this look...

Old Navy Jersey Shirt Dress $15
This dress is very comfortable and it's not that thin so it's great for transitional weather and will be great in spring but if you want a longer sleeve one Old Navy has one of those too.

I got mine at Charlotte Russe in the store and they don't have it online but Khol's has a very similar one. 

Apt. 9® Leopard Print Knit Infinity Scarf

These bootites are on sale for a great price on a super cute style.

My bag is 10+ years old and still fabulous. This is a similar style? Looking to spend a lot less? Michael Kors makes a brown monogram tote too.

This bracelet is elegant and substantial. It brings the whole look together. Or you can rent one from Rocksbox, try it for free with this code: amandabbff1130

I almost always wear this with my bulky smart watch.

Sephora Play September 2017: Fall into Beauty

Wow this was a good box! It has my new favorite face cream that I'm going to suck up and spend $100 bucks on. Plus I got a deluxe sample of a product I already love. This was the first box I got without a perfume sample and I kind of missed it. I've gotten used to having a new scent every month. This box had Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner which I'm not going to bother reviewing because A) Sephora only sells the conditioner and B) you can't really testify to the quality of a shampoo with one wash. So anyway... check out the rest of the products and my reviews.

Benefit Gimme Brow $12-24
I use this almost everyday. When I go out I do a full on brow sculpt but for just walking around town or running errands this gives me perfectly tamed and slightly darkened brows. Its so easy you just comb the brush through your brows, sculpting as you go. It comes in three colors and two sizes.

I'm not a big fan of pencil liners, I personally like the precision of felt liners but I do use pencils on the inside of my lowers lashes when I want a really sultry look. This liner is good for smudging and creating a smoky eye. It claims to be waterproof and 12 hr wear which I can't really speak to but it did come off with makeup remover wipes pretty easily.

Wow is this product amazing. I'm not sure where to start. It tingles when you put it on which is either a very good sign or a very bad one. You must avoid your eyes and I have to put on my eye cream first because I wasn't getting it all off my fingers and really irritating my eyes. This product claims to regenerate the skin and tighten it and it definitely delivers. My skin tone is more even and my complexion more clear, which isn't per say what it's supposed to do but dead skin cells clogging up your pores can create blemishes. I really noticed the difference when I stopped using it. Seriously don't get it near your eyes, Pat told me to stop using it because I couldn't remember to wash my hands thoroughly before taking out my contacts and my eyes got really irritated. When I stopped I broke out again and my skin was less tight so I changed up my whole nighttime routine to accommodate this product. Moral of the story is that is well worth the price and I know a few people who are getting this for Christmas.

Another seriously great product in a stunning color. This liquid lipstick is longlasting and vibrant. I would say it lasts 6-8 hours and while it's fairly dry like a stain it doesn't suck the moisture out of your lips entirely.

This is a great gel moisturizer. It's super light weight and would be perfect for hot summer months when you need a light moisturizer. It's refreshing and cool on the skin.

White Tunic and Leopard Print Pants

What girl doesn't love a little bit of leopard in her life? I stress the little bit. If you don't want to look like you're straight out of the cast of Jersey Shore you've got to be tasteful and selective. These pants are just enough to be playful but not too much. I dressed them up a bit with a white tunic and gold accessories. I'm sorry Scarlett wasn't in the mood to take my picture on this day so I snapped a few while shopping at Nordstrom. My photographer is fickle what can I say? Here's the look.

Shop this look...

Lush Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic $28
I'm so excited this is on sale again. It's a really great tunic and I have it in 3 colors. It's just a classy look.

Mine are Zara and a few seasons old, but these ones from Old Navy are perfect and are on sale. This style runs a tad bit small.

Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flat $228
These shoes are casual but elegant and polish any look.

This pendant is a designer look for a great price.

I love my Tory Burch cuff to the moon and back. It really adds sophistication to any look.

Ok so maybe I went a little heavy on the Tory Burch today, but this is my favorite bag.
