Review- Sonia Kashuk blush in Sunset

Everytime I go to Target I always head over the the beauty section.  I think I've walked by the Sonia Kashuk blushes about a million times before finally giving in and buying it (not that I need anymore blush). I decided on the color Sunset as I thought it would be a nice summery blush to go with my summer tan.  This particular blush is best described as a sherbety-orange-pink-coral that has flecks of fine gold glitter.  The glitter isn't the chunky type of glitter that ends up on your face and all over yourself.  It's actually rather subtle when applied.  The color is beautiful AND super pigmented too!  The staying power isn't bad either.  I think it lasted for most of the day (sorry if that's not helpful... I don't really check my makeup that often).  Anyway in case anyone was wondering about their blushes, they're worth checking out!

Maxed Out

I've been training for my second half marathon (The Disneyland Half Marathon! whee!) so I follow a pretty strict training regimen.  This Saturday I was slotted to run a 10K simulating race pace.  Needless to say, I was exhausted and sore afterwards.  The last thing I wanted to do was throw on some tight skinny jeans or heels.  I opted for a nice comfy maxi dress instead.

For all those petite gals out there, I highly recommend this dress from Forever21!  It's SO hard to find a maxi dress that doesn't drag.  While this isn't a total maxi dress that covers your entire feet, it certainly is as comfy as one.  I think I'm going to order these in the other colors as well.  At only $10.80 it's a steal! I will mention though that this dress is rather see-through.  I suggest throwing on a slip to hide the goods.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

What I'm wearing:
Maxi Dress (size S)- Forever 21; found here
Gold Sandals- Forever 21 (last season);  also cute

This past weekend I went to see Brave! I'm such a sucker for Disney and Pixar.  Total kid at heart here!  I totally loved it (although the first time I saw her I thought she looked like a Cabbage Patch Doll). I highly recommend it as it has a good mix of cuteness and adult humor.

This is my movie-going outfit. Mint green has been my obession for the Spring and Summer.  I've tried on more pairs of mint green pants than I can count and have finally found one that fits me! I found this one at H&M.  I decided to go for a more casual look and threw on my new denim jacket (I couldn't find my old denim jacket from high school and finally gave up and bought a new one at Zara).  I wore my gray Toms with this outfit. Pardon the lack of outfit detail.  We were rushing out the door so we wouldn't miss the movie! I promise I'll do better next time.

Here's a closer look at the jacket. I really like this wash. It's not too light and not too blue.  They have a TON of different washes at Zara if you're interested.

I hope you all had a great weekend! Monday's down...only 4 more days to go!

Style Glimpse

I am loving this coral crop top that I recently bought.  I found this top at Pac Sun.   I wouldn't say that Pac Sun is one of my top 5 all time favorite stores BUT I do pop in every now and then.   They do have some very petite-friendly items. I think sometimes Pac Sun gets overlooked as an option for us petite gals because it's seen as a "younger" store.  If you have the time, I'd say pop in because you never know what you may find.  Sometimes the best finds are the most obscure ones.

I named the title of this post "Style Glimpse" because it's just that.  I'm leaving it up to your imagination and creativity to see what YOU would wear with this top.  I think at times when we see outfits on others we tend to mimic their style because we love what we see; but then we start to lose sense of our own unique personal style.  I  guess this post is meant to be more of a style challenge than an OOTD.  Tell me how you would style an outfit with this crop top.
