Nikki Lund 'Essential' Blazer

I love wearing off beat brands especially for essential staples to my wardrobe. Every girl needs a LBB (Little black blazer). I wear my Nikki Lund blazer with nice black shorts for work events (pictured above), distressed skinny jeans, skirts, black pants, etc. depending on the occasion. It is the perfect piece to pull an entire outfit together or even take a casual outfit and make it business appropriate. The Nikki Lund collection derived from a mix of  relaxed Cali vibes + a rock & roll edge. The line has been worn by celebrities such as Madonna, Carrie Underwood, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Kate Beckinsale and much more! You can shop the entire collection at Shop.NikkiLund.com ! Let me know what you guys think :) PS my blazer is the 'System Blazer' under the 10 essential pieces. Here's a link for it {System Blazer}



As you guys know, I'm not a huge makeup gal. However, when I do wear makeup my go-tos are strictly lipstick and blush. When I heard there was a lipstick that lasts for 4-18 hours, I knew I had to try it. This way I could throw it on for the day/night and not think twice. I also have a couple of friend's weddings coming up where we have to be ready super early in the day and I wanted to find a product that would last the entire evening. The first time I tried LipSense I put it on at 2pm, and I still had color on my lips when I woke up the next morning at 8am without looking smudged or smeared. Not to mention, my lips were super soft as LipSense has been known to exfoliate your dead skin and wax buildup.

I chose my colors very strategically. I chose the clear one called "glossy" for days I want to go with the "no makeup makeup" look. It still plumps up your lips and makes them super soft and glossy looking without looking like you are wearing any makeup.  "Napa" which is a deep raspberry color is going to be my go-to for fall meetings and casual dinners. "Fly Girl" is a loud red which is being reserved for Saturday Nights Out with the girls. "Bombshell" is a soft nude which enhances my normal lip color to just give my face a polished and soft finish. The best part about LipSense is it comes with a gloss called "oops remover" for if you want to take it off, or decide to go with a different color right after you put another one on. Yes, you heard me...finally we found a lipstick that is actually hard to get off.
