I decided to show you guys my outfit that I wear over 40 hours a week, my scrubs! Some of you guys may already know but those of you who don’t, I’m a nurse in Labor and Delivery and I’m just about done with Master’s in Nursing this May. When Estee Lauder approached me to try out their Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder…I knew exactly how I wanted to put it to the test! I work 12 hours shifts that involve running around, sweating, taking off and putting on surgical masks…well you get the picture! A foundation and powder that can hold up after all that definitely deserves the creds. A lot of the times when I get out of work (like the day I actually shot these pics), I usually have plans to grab a quick mid-week dinner with my fiancé or cocktails with my girlfriends (if it’s Girls Night Out…hehe!). Since I get home around 7:30 or 8 pm, I really don’t have much time to retouch my makeup. So having the Stay-in-Place powder worked out perfect for a quick refresh! I am so happy to know I can rely on Estee Lauder to really “stay-in-place” and keep me ready to go from work to play. If you are on the market for a new foundation, especially for the warmer Summer months, I definitely recommend you try Estee Lauder Stay-in-Place.

In case you are curious, my shade is 1C1 Cool Bone and I have Combination Oily to Dry skin and it held up beautifully and did not make me oily or breakout at all! I also got the perfect color match with their unique iMatch system which scans your skin to make sure you get the perfect color foundation and powder to match your unique skin tone.

I have been crushing on Old Navy really hard these days! I guess you already know that since this is the second post in a row featuring Old Navy…oops! Well I am loving this super comfy striped shift dress and washed denim jacket combo. I wore this on my girls trip to the Keys this weekend and was so happy in it. I also loved adding a pop of color with these turquoise earrings. I hope you guys had a great weekend and have a great Tuesday! Thanks for reading.

I wore this casual and super comfy outfit on a mall date with my Mom this weekend. I had been on the hunt for a dark wash chambray and finally found it at Old Navy for $25! I also found these super awesome wedges from Emily at The Sweetest Thing (if you haven’t checked her out, she’s has the cutest blog!). They are have quickly become my go-to wedges! They are the perfect color brown. I love them so much, I’m thinking about getting them in black too! Oh boy. My fiancé and and I are trying to save up for an apartment…promise not to tell him ok?!

Have a great week everyone!

Splurge

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight 

Everyone likes having nice things, but it’s so hard to save when there are so many cute things out there ALL THE TIME! It’s especially hard when you are trying to save for a wedding and a house! I have had to change my spending habits lately. So when I see a designer item on a really cute blogger, I try to compensate by finding a similar look for way less! You’d be surprised how successful I have been! Above are the top items I have compared and contrasted. Pretty good right?! I mean if you can splurge on the stunning Valentino bag, more power to you! I just ask you let me borrow her, ok?!

Have a great day guys!
