22 Must Have on Trend Jackets and Coats

What Coat to Wear

As a southern born girl I hate the cold but love the fall and winter accessories. Living in New York City the past few years I’ve learned the value of a good coat! Having both style and functionality is KEY. You want something that will keep you warm in the various parts of Fall and Winter (light jacket, medium jacket, and walking sleeping bag jacket is how I like to think of it). But since your outfit is covered up by a coat most of the day, you also want it to be cute! No matter where you live, you’ll probably end up wearing a coat for at least a little bit during the year, so it might as well be something you love. This year the leather moto jacket was a super big trend (I myself went out and bought this leather jacket  from Shopbop during their last sale). In addition to the leather jacket, bombers, trench, oversized, and even blazers were also popular. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite in each style to share with you. Keep reading to see my picks for this season’s jacket trends!


Why You Should Add Charcoal To Your Beauty Routine + Charcoal Products

Adding Charcoal To Your Beauty RoutineYes, that says charcoal! It may sound a little crazy, but charcoal is one of the new “it” ingredient in beauty. Charcoal absorbs oils and debris from pores on your face and body like it’s going out of style. Your skin will be screaming thank you the first time you try it out! Activated charcoal, carbon, has been used for years and years before it found its way into beauty products. Charcoal use to be used to treat alcohol poisoning because it attaches to toxins in the stomach and getting rid of them like it’s garbage day (please don’t try this at home though). With that being said, I’m going to share with you why charcoal is getting all this much deserved love and some great charcoal products you can try too!

powder face cleansersLiving in the “Chipotle age” we’ve all grown accustomed to having things customized to be exactly how we like them. Luckily beauty products are starting to pick up on this.

Trend to Try: Matte Nail Polish

Matte Nail Polish
It may seem like every week there is a new nail trend to try, from naked manicures to DIY designs. One trend that’s been going pretty strong for a while though is Matte Nail Polish. Okay so you’re probably use to me talking about mattifying products for my face, and yes the obsession has also found it’s way to my nails.
Matteadjective; of a color, paint, or surface) dull and flat, without a shine.
Okay so from the definition that might not sound to hot, but trust me matte nail polish is actually pretty cool (you saw what I did there ;), corny I know). But seriously, matte nails are a great way to switch up your nail polish look for spring and summer. Zoya even came out with a line of satin matte nail polish (think matte but even more fancy) in pretty pastels for the season. These are actually some of my favs because they’re a blend between a matte nail polish and a traditional polish.
Matte Nail Polish Top Coats
Not sure if you want to fully commit to this trend? You can actually make any of your regular nail polishes look like a matte nail polish by using a mattifying top coat. Try this matte top coat from Essie or this one from elf.
