Accessory Tuesday: Dez Bar Studs

I love turquoise jewelry. I think it’s flattering on every skin tone and is classic in style when used the right way. These earrings are minimal and appropriate for both the office and the weekend. I like that they are noticeable but won’t compete with a necklace if you want to wear both. Being as busy as I am, I also appreciate that if I forget to change them I can wear them with all different outfits and they will match pretty much anything I wear. Also, since it’s a stud, my son is less likely to try to pull them out of my ears. The price is right at $40 at Gorjana, but they look like they could be more expensive. Dez Bar Studs

Update: Unfortunately, these earrings have sold out — but for substitutes, Etsy has a few.

Makeup & Beauty Monday: Colorstay Exactify Liquid Liner

There have been a lot of cool beauty innovations recently, but here’s an eyeliner update I never could have imagined. It’s a Revlon liquid liner, and when you take it out of the tube, there’s a tiny circle at the bottom (it looks like a mini pizza wheel) that you use to “wheel” the eyeliner onto your upper lash line. Not only does it have a novelty factor (which after several uses still has not worn out), but the liner formula itself is great. It’s very dark and stays put all day; most of my eye makeup ends up under my eyes after a long day, but this did not budge. This is not an entry-level liquid liner — I would not choose this type of applicator to learn with, but for all of you cat-eye professionals out there, this liner is worth a buy. It’s $11.99 at Ulta and also available at Amazon and your local drugstore. Revlon Colorstay Exactify Liquid Liner

Budget Thursday: Knit Muscle Stripe Tank Top

I’ve been hearing great things about the Universal Thread line from Target. The designs are cute for the summer and on trend without being too youthful. I love a good striped shirt, and this one gets good reviews for its length and soft fabric. Even though it’s only $10, I can see it being something I reach for over and over on summer weekends when I don’t want to put too much thought into what to pair with shorts. Bonus points to Universal Thread for also having an amazing shoe line, which I’d love to get my hands on one of these days. Universal Thread Knit Muscle Stripe Tank Top

Accessory Tuesday: Leather Crossbody Bag & Belt Bag

Maybe it’s all the normcore fashion that’s out there right now, but every bag line has their version of a fanny pack. With my formative years being the early-mid ’90s, I initially rejected the fanny pack resurgence. However, I can see the practicality here. This bag has enough space for a few cards, some cash, and your phone. If you keep it around your waist, you can avoid digging through a crowded diaper bag for the essentials. This particular one from Lo & Sons lets you dip your toe into the trend without fully committing, as you can also wear it as a cross body, shoulder bag, and wristlet. Three out of the four offered colors are currently 20% off. Lo & Sons Leather Crossbody Bag & Belt Bag

Budget Thursday: Elbow Patch Knit Blazer

Loft always has killer sales, and it’s hard to predict what will be in stock. This blazer looks lovely and has very positive reviews — and it would be a great workwear basic. I like the sort of academic look to the elbow patches, and the pale gray with a little bit of a herringbone pattern. I would wait until it’s 40–50% off, which should be any day now. Also note Loft’s new plus sizes and, as always, maternity sizes. For now, this blazer is $128 and comes in sizes 2–14. Elbow Patch Knit Blazer

Two plus-size options are at Talbots (also available in regular, petites, and woman petites) and Macy’s.

Accessory Tuesday: Sadie Wedge 40mm

Everyone sings the praises of Cole Haan Tali wedges, but the bow can seem a little fussy to me — so I much prefer these simpler wedges with the flexible foot. The snakeskin print featured here is a great neutral for a lot of different outfits, but note that they’ve also got black patent, black suede, beige suede, and more. They’re $179.95 at Zappos, and you can also find them at Amazon and Nordstrom in lots of colors. Cole Haan Sadie Wedge 40mm

A more affordable option is this lovely Franco Sarto wedge at DSW.
