Today’s FRYday is all about our weekend at Alt Summit! This being their last conference in Salt Lake City (basically our hometown) and also Emily’s 30th birthday we knew we wanted to make it happen. We have such great memories at Alt in the passed and this year was no exception. Next year in Palm Springs is sure to be the same! Here’s what we packed:
WEARING: 1. I am obsessed with this top and I just discovered it in white too! Need them both .And at this price point it’s totally doable. 2. Look no further, I have found THE PERFECT T!!!! YES it’s expensive, but look you’ve bought 12 black tees this year so let’s just count this as the one that will last forever okay?! BUTTERY soft, perfect length, perfect cut on the arm. Perfect. Just perfect. Okay? Stop worrying and just do it – you’ll thank me later.
3.Okay obviously black was a huge theme for me this year because I”m still dealing with a post baby body I’m not familiar with. Black helps take the guessing game out too! It’s always stylish and classic and everything goes together. I haven’t taken the plunge on a good pair of jeans in FOREVER and I’m so glad I did. There really is such a difference in a quality pair of denim. Seriously I LOVE these.
USING: Answering a ton of questions here, because I recently did a Periscope on my makeup routine and I want to break it down for y’all who watched!
gives me LIFE. It gives such a beautiful glow to your skin. I love it so much. NARS Sheer Foundation
is a came charger. I’ve been wanting a foundation with more coverage and this totally does the trick without being too heavy! This concealer
is my favorite because it has a perfect yellow tune and calms down red spots and is LONG lasting – seriously the pot will last you a life time, mine has lasted two years now. This TARTE
blush in tipsy and BB Bronzer
are also a favorite!! Of course you need Anastasia Brow Pomade
but to take it next level invest in the brush
– I Just did and I don’t have ANY idea why I didn’t before.
For our first dinner I wore the thing I wear pretty much everyday (thanks to Nicole for the find!) a swing turtleneck with Jcrew Toothpick Maternity Jeans
and Over the Knee Boots
. It’s so great for the stage when your belly isn’t nice and round and still a little flabby. It hides it all! I got every color from Zara, but they’re gone now – sad! Asos has a few similar styles
that are crazy cheap though. // For our day of classes and meetings I wore this floral dress
, these split shaft boots
(which are the best deal in town and such great quality!) and this two-tone cross body bag
! // Then for the Starrry Night party I kept it easy in all black but made it special with these glitter platforms
! Such a steal and pretty comfortable, considering.
[With our Chapbooks and Raising Wild fam! Check out RW’s new suit
– perfect for V-Day, no?]
You all know how I love a bold lip so I alternated between Pure Zen
Also it should be noted that we received the most amazing gift bag from our dinner with Collectively! I’ve been using all the products since and wanted to share:
Bare Escentuals new line of facial care. This cleanser
gets my face feeling so clean an soft and the moisturizer
is one of the few I’ve tried that doesn’t feel like it leaves a film or residue. Also been loving Kleenex’s
new exfoliating pads and make-up removing cloths. The packaging is so great, too. They also gave us a few products to try from Living Proof!
Jenna has been raving since she worked with them for this post and she’s right, everything is amazing! Also another gift to note is the Rosy Lip balm from Vaseline. I love anything rose and this has been vital for my dry Winter lips. You can get it at any drug or Target style store.
WEARING: I’m on an Overall kick – love this pair!
For our first Alt dinner I wore it with this perfect tee
. // The next day in my favorite high waisted denim with this rad sweater.
It’s only $35 and still comes in every size, which is such great luck! // And for the evening those favorite high waists in black
with my new (old) obsession: the body suit! It’s so feminine and slimming for a high waist pant. Love this one
, and I have these two (1
as well! I wore a version of these boots
all weekend long, mine are sold out but these are awesome, too!
