sunshine, please stay a while

Top: F21 (sold out online) (another option at F21) (similar at UO)

Blazer: c/o Daisy Boutique (sold out) (similar at F21) (here at Dillards)

Pants: Zara (’09) (similar at F21-great price)  (another option)

Shoes: Steve Madden (similar by Chinese Laundry) (and here too) (here in suede)

Bag: NY&Co. (super cute option here) (love this one too at Express)

Necklace: umm..?  (similar at F21

The weather has been absolutely amazing. It’s hard to believe it’s 70 up here in middle of March. Not complaining though, not at all.  I’m going to take advantage of it while it lasts. 

On a different note, I’m sort of excited about Ulta’s 21 days of special deals. Today I got the Tarte – Light’s, Camera, Lashes Mascara. I hope it lives up to it’s hype. It’s a great way to try a few different “high-end” products for a reduced price. 

Are you eyeing anything at Ulta?

Thank you for stopping by!

    I love Tarte's light, camera, action mascara. Its the only one that doesn't cause my eye to itch and it gives me great, long lashes and it lasts all day.

    Ulta is the best – I love tarte makeup and they carry everything I use — and it's 10 min. from my house… could be a bad thing. 🙂 Enjoy the sunshine!

    @K – I think you're right, JCP. Thanks ;)@Laura – it could be 🙂 Mine is just down the road from where I work, also a bad thing.

    Yea for warm weather! I'm feeling the exact same way, praying that it stays like it is now. Warm enough for no heater, but still cold enough to not bust out the air conditioner…nice way to keep our electric bill down 🙂
