10 Style Essentials – July 2016

Style Essentials

Style essentials1. Glitter Everything

From sneakers to nails, I have been indulging in everything with glitter this month. When in doubt, put something on that helps put an extra sparkle in your step.

Style essentials2. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

This is the best tinted moisturizer I have ever tried and has surprisingly lasted a long time! Having seen so many beauty bloggers rave about it for so long, I caved and had to try it for myself.

The formula itself is so hydrating and perfectly tinted (medium to low coverage) that it doesn’t look or feel like you’re wearing anything at all. I think I got it in March and still have some left. It probably isn’t what they recommend in terms of how long you should keep using your make up but you don’t have to use that much. I hate throwing the leftovers away!


Style essentials3. Pink Leather Backpack

I use this bag every single day. It’s the perfect size and needless to say so cute. This one I have is from Zara and is unfortunately no longer available online. Below are some similar options!



Style essentials4. Bite Beauty Lip Crayons

I can be very impulsive (working on it!)… and purchasing one of these lip crayons was one of those moments. They are more than I would usually pay but are really incredible (I would sure hope so). I love how easy they are to carry and how long they last!

I have the shades ‘Glacé’ (more of a nude) and ‘Rose Hip’ (bright red). They last forever and have a really clean and easy application. Another plus: you almost don’t even need a liner!





Style essentials5. Overalls

Have had a love affair with overalls for a while now. I think it all started last summer when they became trendy again so I hesitantly tried it out and have been addicted ever since. They look and feel so cool especially with a good white sneaker or espadrilles. It gives such a fun and easy going vibe. How you feel when wearing overalls is the best! 100% wardrobe essential.





Style Essentials6. Levi’s 501

While I feel almost the same way about Levi’s that I do overalls, these are SUCH a classic staple piece. Perfect to throw on over the weekend or casually running errands while keeping a chic relaxed look. From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale roundup, I had paired a similar looking pair of jeans with a ‘KALE’ tee, sneakers, and bucket bag… Perfection. I am still itching to purchase that entire outfit.


Style Essentials7. A Good Hat

I got the hat in the photo from Club Monaco about a year ago and I think over the last few weeks it has gotten the most use. Weird that it’s summertime/80 degrees and I keep putting on a winter-y felt hat, but it’s everything I want right now!


Style Essentials8. Kendra Scott Earrings & Necklace

The brand Kendra Scott is everywhere and I always randomly spot earrings I love only to find out they are by Kendra (of course they are!). So it was so cool to be able to test them out myself this month.

Since I am a member with Rocksbox, they sent me 2 of her pieces in my box this month and I think I have worn the earrings almost every day. I do not want to send them back but I keep getting more excited for what will come in my box next! If you haven’t tried it, you can sign up using my code: astylebookxoxo to get your first month free (also shown below)! Try it out. You can cancel anytime. It is so fun and exciting to rotate jewelry pieces each month!


Style Essentials9. Embroidered Denim

These shorts light up my life! I love them and am so mad to now discover they have been marked down to half the price I got them for. Find them HERE! Similar embroidered goodness down below…



Style Essentials10. One-pieces

As stated in a recent post, one-pieces are so hot right now. I love all of the low neck lines and cut outs!
