Loving This Week: Fresh Denim + the New It Beauty Brand

Lush Tunic - Citizens of Humanity Jeans - Leif Body Balm - Glossier Skin Tint - T Tahari Coat

My number one shopping fascination this week is Glossier, the blog-spawned beauty brand that’s taking over the world. Ok, maybe not taking over, but definitely getting a ton of good press. I’ve got to try this stuff.

On the fashion front, a fresh take on wide leg denim and some excellent sale finds to help weather the rest of winter in style. Check out all of my favorite online shopping finds this week…

1. Lush Perfect Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic, $25.20 (was $42.00)
I’m generally wary of items that the maker has taken it upon themselves to name “perfect.” But, for $25, I’ll take a chance. This simple tunic has a nicely draped silhouette, comes in eight different colors and patterns, and ships for free. I think it’s perfect for a casual workplace.

2. Citizens of Humanity Abigail Wide Leg Jeans, $220.00
Just when I think I’ve seen every possible denim shape, someone comes out with a look that is brand new…in a good way. These high-rise, cropped wide-leg jeans feel fresh and modern, and they’ll look just as good with tank tops in the summer as with chunky knits in the winter.

3. Leif Wild Rosella & Alpine Pepper Body Balm, $36.00
Last month I had the good fortune to win SpaceNK’s 10k Instagram Followers Giveaway (more on that over on IG). This body balm, along with the matching body cleanser, was part of my loot. I’ve been using it pretty much non-stop since. It has a delicate unisex scent, moisturizes like crazy, and is chock full of nourishing antioxidants and circulation boosters.

4. Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint, $26.00
Have you jumped on the Glossier bandwagon yet? This new-ish beauty brand from the team behind beauty blog Into the Gloss is on fire. They only make nine products, yet everyone is obsessed. This sheer liquid allegedly evens out skin and imparts dewy perfection. I’m so ready to try it. If only they weren’t completely sold out of my shade.

Update: The spanking new Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser dropped today, and was added to the Glossier Phase 1 Set (Milky Jelly Cleanser, Priming Moisturizer, Balm Dotcom, Perfecting Skin Tint, tote bag). To celebrate, Glossier is offering $10 off the Phase 1 Set with code HEY2016 through 11:59 p.m. on 1/12.

5. T Tahari Wool Blend Belted Wrap Coat, $166.50 (was $348.00)
I love that winter fashions are always massively on sale this time of year. It’s like the entire industry gets selective amnesia and forgets that there are like seventy days of winter left. So, how about we all scoop up this gorgeous wool coat – available in four colors – at half price.
