Eight things I am very close to buying:
+Chantecaille HD Perfecting Loose Powder. I know, I know — I am SO obsessed with this brand lately. Ever since I fell in love with their tinted moisturizer and their lipstick (<<OMG, POWER PRODUCT! I own this in the Bourbon Rose color and it glides on like a dream, gives off a beautiful, rosy, flushed effect, and is sheer enough to be applied without a mirror), I’ve been eyeing pretty much their entire line. I’m especially curious about this loose powder, which I’ve read multiple effusive reviews over. I don’t always wear powder but have been using it on my forehead to help with concealing my scar and I find it’s useful in the winter more generally, when I tend to need more coverage. I’ve been very into this Makeup Forever Loose Powder, which is super-fine and super-light, but I think I might invest in the Chantecaille. I love that it comes with its own brush!
+Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum. I have been a devotee of my Truth Serum (one of my favorite discoveries from 2018 — my mom loved it so much she called me after using it to rave about it for about ten minutes straight, saying she’d never tried anything like it, and she is a TRUE beauty junkie — no offense, mom!), but just finished my third bottle of it in record time. I don’t know why, but I fly through this stuff. Maybe I apply too much? I use one pump in the morning and occasionally a second if I’m touching up in the evening, and I swear a bottle barely lasts a month or two. Anyway, I have long been eyeing this Vintner’s Daughter serum, which people absolutely lose their minds over. A friend recently told me that she has stripped down her skincare routine to just this and La Mer Cream and her skin looks flawless. Hmmmm.
+Rebecca de Ravenel Daisy Drop Earrings. I own a few pairs of RDR earrings and they are just the cutest, most whimsical pieces out there. I’m in love with this quirky daisies! I am thinking they’d look adorable with this Sleeper dress, which I mentioned as an option for Easter while massively pregnant, but has since sold out in the floral, and now I’m thinking about wearing it in the blue to my baby shower in a few weeks. But again — seasonality! Linen in March?! AHH. Who knows; it could be freezing cold, or could be spring-like. (Also like these similar daisy drop earrings, on sale.)
+Spanx camo leggings, on sale. I just know that I’ll be living in leggings as I recover from delivery this summer, and these camo babies have my name all over them. (Get the look for less with these for $30!) I imagine wearing them with a chambray button-down and nursing tank for days around the house or with a boxy, solid-colored sweatshirt like this or this, and maybe some cool new kicks. Also love these in the dusty pink / bronze colors, with a coordinating sports bra.
+Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek Stain. One of my favorite beauty influencers, Michaela Podo, raved about this product. I am so intrigued. I love any product with multiple applications — kind of like my go-to RMS Living Luminizer, which I dab everywhere from my brows to my cheekbones to my decolletage.
+SZ Blockprints Caftan. I can’t stop.
+I am torn between several options for getting the tie dye lewk, so I’ve had four different things in my cart and I keep clicking back and forth. I love this duster/trench — something I can wear while pregnant with white skinnies, white booties/flats, and a simple white maternity tee for an of-the-moment vibe. (Maybe with one of my favorite knot headbands?) I also love this loose dress, which would work with my bump and could be paired with my go-to ivory Valentino rockstud flats. I still wear those shoes ALL the time even though I know the rockstud moment has passed in a major way. I don’t care. I love them so. One of my readers (heiii MK) introduced me to the brand Upstate and I love this effortless jumpsuit, too. (And is it a sign or not that it’s called “the magpie jumpsuit”?!) Finally, I love this tee, but I feel like I should buy it in my post-pregnancy size so I can rock it this summer with white skinnies, silver Birks, and beachy hair.
+Ribbed cashmere leggings. I am so tired of my maternity leggings and jeans — UGH. I know these wouldn’t fit but I want them to so badly for a change of pace. Contemplating instead buying them for next winter…would be SO chic with some GG sneaks or snakeskin booties and a big oversized sweater for errands!
P.S. More of a stretch, but I love love love the label Brock Collection and if this dress weren’t sold out in my size, I’d be having serious heart palpitations.
