A Jumpsuit, A Moto Jacket, And A Fashion Link Up

Welcome to Thursday Fashion Files with Jill at Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom! We are excited to have you here and would love to have you link up one of your latest outfits with us. We are always looking for Co-Hosts for Thursday Fashion Files.

I am showing a simple OOTD and linking up with the lovely ladies above. I apologize for the short post, but the weather has been rainy for about a month straight and of late, a bit nippy as well. During times like this (cold, foggy, and rainy) my ideal situation is to be confined to my bed, snuggled up in a huge comforter, nibbling on some snacks, and watching a marathon of SNAPPED.  

I know my outfit of the day seems more fitting for September instead of May, but after living in Denver for the last couple of years, I have learned to dress for the weather and not the season.  This look was all about comfort, blending a slouchy jumpsuit with a moto jacket and a pair of super high but extremely comfortable platform wedges.  I consider both pieces, a jumpsuit and a moto jacket, to be my wardrobe staples.  I own three black jumpsuits and each of them is distinctive styles and fit slightly different. This one pinches in the waist and the wider trouser legs balance out my inverted triangle body shape. The moto jacket can be considered my 'buy less choose well'  item for April. After viewing it for months and trying to decide if I needed another motorcycle jacket, I pounced on it when Ashley Stewart marked it down last month. The metallic panels on the front was the selling point for me because it sets it aside from just another moto jacket, don't you think?  

Until next time, Stay Fab!

ps..Don't forget to check out the other ladies below and be sure to link your latest post.

Current Beauty Essentials & A Few More Things

The product junkie in me is back at it again sharing some of my spring essentials.
Not a beauty expert, but these products are certainly doing the trick for me.

1| Nars Illuminator in Super Orgasm | I mix it with moisturizer to give me a sun-kissed glow or use as a highlighter on my cheeks and nose.

2| Caviar Crème by Alterna | The best leave-in I have ever tried. It pops natural curls leaving them bouncy and soft but also works great as a heat primer. The end result is hair feeling like silk! 

3| Fresh Laundry by Clean | A crisp, light, and airy fragrance that smells just like fresh washed laundry without the harsh smell of a heavy detergent.  With names like Skin, Fresh Cotton, Air, Shower Fresh, and Clean, this brand has made me want to collect all of their clean smelling fragrances.

4| Melted Coral by Two Faced | Highly pigmented long wearing lip gloss. I love almost every shade by this brand but melted coral  is definitely one of my favorite shades for spring.

5| NYX Micro Brow Pencil| I recently discovered that this product is the perfect dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hill Brow Wiz yet cost half the price! 

6| OPI Alpine Snow | The holy grail of white nail polish. It’s a matte color that is extremely white, bold, and works great alone or for French manicures.

Kimono Love II

If I had to choose only one trend item to add to my wardrobe this summer, hands down it would be the kimono.

I am soooo into....Knee High Gladiators

 I am so into the gladiator trend this season but not the typical ankle level strappy ones.
I'm talking knee & thigh grazing, cage-like, statement gladiators.
