Family Photos in Paris

Paris is my absolute favorite place in the world. There’s beauty and elegance everywhere you look in the city, and it’s really just a magical place. A couple years ago Jr and I decided to have photos taken of us, so we thought it would be fun to have some family photos taken on our trip there last month to capture Jaden’s first trip to Europe!

I want to share some of my favorite photos and outfit details because I’m obsessed with this pretty lace dress! I need to find excuse to wear it again soon!

Where is your favorite place you’ve travelled to?

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

I’m always looking for a great foundation that will give me flawless skin. Make Up For Ever Ultra HD foundation is one of my long time favorites that I’ve been using off and on for probably the last 10 years. I haven’t had a bottle of it for a while, so I was so happy to have the chance to try it out again.

I love that this foundation comes in 40 shades, so everyone can find their perfect match! The foundation has a medium coverage, and I would say that it is a natural finish, and not too matte or dewy. It applies easily, and blends out effortlessly (I like using a brush). It evens out my skin tone, but still lets my skin peek through.

While I do like this foundation, it isn’t my favorite anymore, and there are a few reasons why I won’t reach for it regularly (and probably why I haven’t for a while). MUFE HD has a natural matte finish, but I tend to prefer a little more of a dewy finish since my skin tends to be more on the dry/normal side, and I just like the look of dewy skin. I don’t like wearing heavy makeup on the daily, but I do like more of a medium to full coverage foundation that will cover most of my freckles. MUFE is nice for when I just want my skin tone evened out, but it doesn’t have enough coverage to cover my freckles, which are pretty dark and I have a lot of them.

Overall, I do still like this foundation and will use it for times I only want a light makeup look, but it won’t be in my every day makeup routine. I would recommend this foundation to someone looking to even out their skin tone, but doesn’t need a ton of coverage because it has a beautiful finish and lasts for a decent amount of time on the skin.

What is your favorite foundation?

Navy Trench & Purple Heels

I don’t know about you, but I’m so ready for fall outfits! Fall is my favorite time of year and I love the fashion that goes along with it. Today I’m sharing some deeper tones that I’m loving for fall and can’t wait to wear all season long.

This navy trench is great for transitional weather since it’s light weight, and it will be great for layering over sweaters as well. I paired it with these purple suede heels because I love this color combo. Since they’re not too far off from each other, I think it’s a great way to add a little more color without being over the top.

Who else is excited for fall?

Striped Culottes

Culottes are such a fun trend that can transition from summer to fall. These ones are super light weight so they’re great for warmer weather, but paired with a denim jacket or sweater, they can also be worn into the cooler fall months.

If you’re short like me, I would recommend a pair with vertical stripes to draw the eye up, and wear them with heels. Anything to elongate your frame since culottes are a wide leg style that could make you look shorter.

Have you tried out culottes? What do you think of them?

Step Hem Jeans

Step hem jeans are everywhere right now, and I’m excited to wear them into fall. I love that these ones have the distressed detail just above the hem to accentuate the style.

These jeans are from Khloe Kardashian’s Good American line, and I’m actually very impressed with the fit. They’re super stretchy and comfortable and I would consider investing in another pair. Good American is marketed as being a brand for all shapes and sizes with an extended size range, so I’m hoping they will extend it even further to include short sizes.

Have you tried the step hem trend?

Skirt with Shirt Details

I love the details on this skirt. I think it's a really cool style that looks like a shirt tied up into a skirt. I've seen this type of trend around lately and I like it. What do you think of it?
