typology paris review | personalized skincare with all natural, simple ingredients

As some of you may know, I’m quite particular as to what I put on my skin. Skincare is so critical, and ensuring well moisturized, pampered skin can keep you young for years. I’ve recently found a skincare routine that I’m quite fond of, but I’m also on ever on the lookout for new and interesting brands and products, while trying to manage a minimal “inventory” of my favorite products to support a more minimalist lifestyle. When Typology reached out offering a personalized skincare regiment, with products that contained as little as 5 ingredients, I couldn’t refuse. A few months later, after I’ve had the chance to consistently use the products for several weeks, and wanted to share this Typology Paris review. Before we begin, let’s talk about how and why the future of skincare and beauty is all about personalization. As consumers increasingly seek out beauty solutions suited to their specific needs, there has never been a greater need for personalization. Everyone has unique skin, so why create products that only tailor to one …

today’s outfit inspo: the sweater vest

No filters, no effects, today’s actual outfit. After putting some thought into what I want to see @dayinmydreams represent this fall as a minimalist and luxury fashion blog, I want to share more real life moments and fashion that isn’t just styled for a feed, but styled for life. Today is one of my last work from home days, before I return to the office full time as marketing director of CSC. while most of this year has been a blur, I’ll tell you my 8-5 work from home style has been essentially loungewear with a blazer thrown over top. That’s about to change as we return to the office, and I have to admit, I’m a bit excited for the shift in gears. Lots coming for fall. Just published this fall’s trend report on key styles we’re seeing from around the globe. Get ready for a continuation of preppy sophisticates, as well as an emergence of nature-inspired trends – largely rooted in sustainability. You can check out the full fall trend report here. With October right …

the new golden standard | randolph sunglasses and a weekend escape to the outer banks

There’s something about salty air and sandy skin that cures the soul. And something about summer that makes the soul long for endless days and star filled nights. It’s not just the sun. Not just the waves crashing on the shoreline. It’s the feeling. The feeling of freedom. The feeling of hope. It’s all of our favorite parts of the season that create a new summer story year after year. Amidst this year’s craziness, we were finally able to experience our first taste on Ocracoke Island, Outer Banks. photography:JOEL CORSON | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sunglasses:c/o:RANDOLPH While I could muse endlessly about the remote shoreline, marina culture, and quaint but charming setting, today’s topic at hand is on one of summer’s most quintessential accessories – sunnies. Like a new bikini and vacation hoodie, sunglasses are an essential we find ourselves browsing for at the first sign of warmer weather. I was introduced to Randolph sunglasses just a few short weeks prior to our escape, and of course – decided the early summer holiday couldn’t begin …

trending now: comfy bralettes that double as micro crop tops

With the days getting longer and the air getting warmer, summer fashion trends are officially on the radar. If previous summers have taught me anything, it’s that the classic crop top isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. We knew crop tops were going to play a big role in 2021, and we knew they were going to be tiny. Many trends are redefined season after season, but with the crop top it is more like reinvented. Designs may come and go, but the crop top is here to stay. The perk: they’re casual, cool and one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. What’s new in crop top trends for 2021 One statement: they just keep getting shorter. Dare to go bare? The bra top (aka micro crop top) is the new crop top for 2021. Skin is in, and body positivity is here to stay. Crops have evolved from showing a hint of mid-drift to downright running out in your skivvies. And truthfully, something about it feels quite liberating. Plus, there’s a style for …

Whether it’s trying a new brand getting raving reviews, or just trying to revamp dull skin with a deep dive into key ingredients.
