Modern, Simple Style

If you haven't heard of Everlane you are in for a treat today! Everlane is an online clothing company whose motto states, "Modern Basics, Radical Transparency." They are just that- modern essential clothing with a very transparent look at where your money goes. Since they are an online only company they eliminate many over head costs and you reap the benefits of their savings.

I personally own many of their pieces and can not rave about them enough. Their customer service is top notch, shipping is timely (and free with 2 or more products),  and returns are easy.
Below is a roundup of my favorite products for women and men. Lots of great options for fall/winter- think Christmas presents, birthdays, or just because! :)

First up, dresses! These are my favorite everyday dresses from Everlane. Throw on a cardigan or blue jean jacket and these will carry you through fall.

Fall Beauty 101

It's that time of year again - time to begin bringing out the long sleeves, sweaters, and boots. Along with bringing out the fall/winter wardrobe comes freshening up with new hair, nails, and makeup for the next season.

First up, out with the old and in with the new. Get rid of those split ends and revive those luscious locks with a fresh new do. I love Courtney Kerr and Blake Lively's take on the loose waves. Below you will find a round up of our favorite hair reviving and styling products.






Next up, those nails. Time to trade those bright, summery colors for a more subtle, warm feel. Below is a round up of my favorite fall/winter colors from two of my favorite brands- Essie and OPI.





Last, but certainly not least, time to rid our faces of that summer skin and freshen up with autumn colors. Below is a round up of my favorite make up products to do the job.
