Packing for Dallas

WHITE DRESS // LIPGLOSS // SUNGLASSES // WHITE HEELS
NOTEBOOKS // GOLD BRACELET // BLUSH PANTS
WEDGES // RING // LEOPARD CLUTCH

Today I’m flying down to Dallas for a blogging conference with lots of my favorite ladies – wanted to share a little glimpse into my suitcase! I’m sticking to basics and pieces that really represent my style as I’ll be meeting with tons of different brands to work with here for the blog. I did a little last minute shopping yesterday at Nordstrom and picked up these natural wedges. 100% worth the splurge. I cannot wait to wear this little white dress from Rebecca Minkoff – it even has a cut out in the back! I’ll be packing my trusty leopard clutch, white strappy heels, and my favorite lip gloss. For jewelry, I’ll be keeping it simple too with my Michael Kors watch, Brandy Pham bracelet, and this Kendra Scott ring. I’m also throwing in a few notebooks in case I want to take notes since we’ll be in some educational sessions! DITTO recently  sent me this pair of sunnies as part of their new endless eyewear program – you can get as much designer eyewear as you’d like every month for just $19! Simple request a pair and when you’re ready for a new one, send it back. DITTO is also offering SC readers their first month free to test out the service – give it a try!

I’ll be regularly posting from Dallas on my instagram and snapchat – both username stylecusp!

BEAUTY // At Home with GlossyBox (&Giveaway!)

Desk Space ViewDesk OrganizationGlossybox AprilGlossyBox AprilGlossybox Giveaway

By now I’m sure we’ve all tried at least one of the monthly subscription boxes that are popping up around the fashion/beauty sphere. I’ve never been a huge fan since sample or test size products aren’t really my thing. They tend to sit in my bathroom drawers for months, take up space, and usually get thrown out. But enter: Glossybox. The Glossybox team has sent me theirs the last few months and I’ve kind of fallen in love! Glossybox doesn’t just send your typical sample, they send a deluxe size product – a few of my favorites the last few months include the Ouidad shampoo/conditioner and the exclusive Glossybox x OPI nail polish (that was a full size bottle!) Glossybox also features more exclusive and higher end brands and products in their boxes. Not to mention, I love their classic light pink boxes! I’ve kept my Glossyboxes and use them around my apartment for storage and organization.

On another note, I’m excited to be partnering with Glossybox this month to giveaway their special edition and sold out April box! We have 3 of these special boxes to give away – head over to my instagram for details!

Whenever I’m in a funky mood and don’t know what to wear, I reach for my closet favorites. Three of them being this tan blazer, slip cami, and white wide leg cropped pants. I’ve found that wearing pieces I feel most confident in is really the only way to get dressed when I just don’t want to. This slip cami is probably one of the most worn pieces in my closet, if not the most worn. 100% worth the price tag! Christina and I headed into the city last week for a dinner with Alicia and ShoeDazzle. I was having a major outfit crisis and knew after trying on the 15th outfit, I needed to stick to my closet favorites. The best part? These pieces never go out of style – so you can wear and rewear them season after season. Shop more of my closet staple suggestions below.

My favorite place on earth is anywhere near the ocean. I live for the ocean breeze, sound of seagulls, and sand in my toes. Someday, I’ll permanently plant myself close by. As much as I love the beach in the peak of summer, one of my favorite times is before beach season starts and the weather is just getting nice enough to head to the shore. The sand feels new, the air is crisp, and there’s no one in sight. Last weekend was our first nice weekend of the year! My sisters and I packed up a little picnic and spent the day on the beach getting fresh air and soaking in some rays. I wore this lightweight lace midi dress, new favorite gold sandals, and of course a trusty panama hat. We stuck around nearly until sunset and shot these gorgeous photos. For those of you who don’t know, my sister Jessica shoots all of my photos for Style Cusp – she does such a phenomenal job and captures the best moments and details, including these scenic shots above. (thank you, Jess!)

My style tends to stay pretty level throughout the fall and winter, but when the warmer temperatures come, I like to mix in a little boho vibes every now and then. As soon as I spotted these fringed sandals at Nordstrom, I knew I wanted to get them. I’m not huge on trends as you all know, but these are just the right amount of fringe without going overboard (as on a bag or jacket for example). These fringe sandals finally came in this week and I put them on almost instantly with my favorite of the moment ripped jeans and an oldie but goodie poncho sweater. They would also look great paired with this little white dress! If this much fringe is too much for you, Nordstrom has a wide selection of fringe clad shoes to choose from this spring. I love these heels (on sale!), this flat sandal, and this splurgeworthy pair.
