currently coveting no. 65

My mind is so focused on warmer temperatures and leaving this winter behind. I'm dreaming of not wearing a ton of layers everyday. Here's what's catching my eye for spring:

ONE / Every time I walk into Warby Parker I find another pair of glasses to covet. This time, it's the Lyle in English Oak.

TWO / I love the pattern on this Isabel Marant top. I'd wear this with everything.

THREE / Simple gold jewelry is my favorite and this cuff would be perfect to wear everyday.

FOUR / This striped tank is so soft and silky - ideal for warm days.

FIVE / Words cannot express how much I want these leopard sandals. They're the perfect pop of pattern for neutral outfits.

SIX / I keep hearing rave reviews of RMS Beauty, both of the brand and their Living Luminizer. I'm anxious to try this highlighter and other products in their line.

SEVEN / The perfect summer tank dress to dress up or down.

EIGHT / This bag screams summer to me - the pale leather, the perforations, the easy tote shape.

weekend moments

This weekend was the perfect combination of relaxing and fun. I had brunch at Tipsy Parson, spent quality time with Sarah and Sarah, slept in, caught up on some reading (Porter magazine and the new Domino) and even did some spring cleaning in my closet. Hope you had an equally great weekend!

happy weekend

I could not be happier to see the weekend! This week was exhausting, but in the best way possible. I had two days of shoots at work, which are so much fun but also tiring. I'm looking forward to a much needed lowkey weekend. Hope you all had a great week! Thank you so much for all of your product recommendations on Tuesday's post - I plan on checking them all out this weekend!

new routines

I've been bouncing around between products for awhile and decided I wanted a more solid skincare routine. I started with Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which then led to sampling a bunch of their other products. I've (somewhat) settled on a new skincare routine and wanted to share my finds:

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate / This was the first new product I tried after hearing rave reviews from a few friends. While I can't say I've noticed a dramatic difference after using it, I love using this every night. It feels like I'm doing something really nice to my skin and I love the smell of it. It has a hint of lavender which is so relaxing before bed.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye / I picked this up along with the Recovery Concentrate, mostly because I was looking for an eye cream. I love how silky it makes my skin feel and it has the same amazing smell as the Concentrate - it's a nice end to the day. I also like using Kiehl's Eye Alert to brighten my eyes in the morning.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser / In the past I've used drugstore acne cleansers and they've all dried out my skin. I love how gentle this cleanser is, but it still feels like it's an effective cleanser.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner / I'm not a big believer in using a toner, but this one is nice and gentle on my skin. I've also tried the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner and actually prefer that formula to this one.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer + SPF / After Clinique altered the formula of my favorite moisturizer (still angry over this!) I had to find a new one. The main thing I look for in my moisturizer is sunscreen so I decided to try this Kiehl's moisturizer. So far, I like how lightweight it is.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment / This is by far my favorite lip balm. I love the smell of it and I love how soft it makes my lips. Bonus points for sunscreen! I also own this in a few of the tinted versions.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask / Not pictured, but I couldn't write this without mentioning it. I had read about Tata Harper on Samantha's blog and was intrigued by the all-natural product line. After Sarah raved about it to me, I knew I had to try it. I've used this a few times since getting it and so far really like it. I like how refreshed it leaves my skin and that I'm putting something really good onto my skin. I'm hoping to try a few more of Tata's all-natural products!

What are some of your favorite products? I've become a bit obsessed with skincare and would love to find some new products to try!

weekend moments

We had a low-key, extra-long weekend hanging around the city, enjoying the nice weather. I took my new sunglasses out for a spin and took a spontaneous trip out to NJ to see my family. The spring-like temperatures had the city buzzing and it was so nice to spend time outside without freezing. It's amazing what nice weather can do for you!
