Casual Style

Happy Friday babes! It's been crazy town around here today, so just a quick post with some of my favorite basics I LIVE in and some new ankle booties that are a SERIOUS steal! 

I've raved about THESE TOPS before but they're definitely a staple in my wardrobe. I own them in several colors and they're on major sale now! They're crazy comfy and I love that the high low hem gives it just a little bit of edge.  I paired it with some distressed denim. During the weekdays running errands I wear this look with flats. If you want to instantly dress up this relaxed look, just add a pair of heels like these killer ankle booties from Windsor store. Do you guys remember my black pair from last year? These are pretty much identical but these are only $35!! A few of you were asking on instagram about sizing and I went with my normal 7.5 and they fit perfect.

You girls know I LOVE boyfriend jeans.  I always get asked about them so I am going to do a full post dedicated to them soon. This pair is from a couple years ago but i've linked a similar pair and a couple pairs under $100 as well.

SKII Facial Treatment Essence

This post was sponsored by SK-II through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about SK-II all opinions are my own. 

Today I'm teaming up with SKII and talking about the brands signature product, The SKII Facial Treatment Essence. I have heard so many AMAZING things about this brand so when they reached out, I couldn't wait to try it! You may be asking yourself "what is an essence"? An essence is a clear liquid that has highly concentrated vitamins, organic acids and fermented probiotics that help refresh the outer layer of skin. It targets wrinkles, fine lines and dull/uneven skin tones. (And I don't know about you but now that i've passed the 30 mark, I am all for anything that helps in those departments.)

This Essence is often referred to as "miracle water" because it's made with over 90% Pitera. I hadn't heard of Pitera before but it is a clear liquid rich that has nourishing vitamins and amino acids, minerals and organic acids that help moderate the skin surface renewal cycle.

I've been using this product for a few weeks and with daily application, I can definitely say it moisturized and improved the texture and clarity of my skin. I use it both day and night prior to using my serums or moisturizers. I sprinkle a few drops in my hand and then distribute the product evenly onto my face, neck and decolletage.  It absorbs very quickly and feels great on my skin. It's such a simple and easy step to incorporate into any skin care routine and has made such a difference.

The SKII Facial Essence is available HERE  and you can check out more of the SKII Line on their website HERE

 SKII also launched a global campaign called Changed Destiny. It was inspired by its commitment to empowering women with the promise of beautiful, ageless skin and the confidence to shape their best destiny. I've made changes to my skin care routine by adding this Facial Treatment Essence into my daily skin care routine and I can definitely see a difference. Invisible skin aging starts in our 20's so I'm definitely taking charge of my skins destiny and taking the steps to get the skin I want in my 30's.
