Weekly Skinny: October 10th
It's 60 degrees and sunny from here. The beginning of the week was so ridiculously hot. I gave tours and was seriously sweating through my tour polo on Monday afternoon. From here on out though, it's looking like Mother Nature has decided Virginia would be receiving crisp 60-degree weather for the next several days. I can't wait to pull out my favorite pair of J. Crew toothpick jeans and heathered mock turtleneck to wear on Friday.
What I'm Eating: I haven't tried out any new recipes this past week, but when I make my way to the grocery store next week I plan on picking up ingredients to make this pumpkin spice bar recipe. The other day I made lemon cake the entire recipe just felt out of season -- I need some pumpkin in my kitchen!
What I'm Watching: I'm currently recapping the last few episodes of Riverdale seeing as season three airs tonight on the CW. Everyone and their mother are already on the Riverdale train, but I want to make sure I'm fully caught up and prepared for season three after that crazy finale in season two.
What I'm Wearing: The one thing getting me through long weeks on campus are my Lulu Lemon Wunder Under leggings. I never understood what the power of a high-quality pair of leggings could do for a person until I wore my Wunder Unders from 7am until 11pm. They're the absolute best!
My Favorite Product: Right now, I am absolutely loving the Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gelfrom Benefit Cosmetics. I wear the second shade. It's easy to use and has great color to it. It's a little on the pricey side but worth every penny.
Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific -- Blair from Atlantic-Pacific always brings a unique, colorful and borderline unattainable style to Instagram. She is a true style icon and now we can finally shop her style with new Atlantic-Pacific collection she’s creating with Halogen. It is launching explicitly at Nordstrom on October 22nd and will fly off the racks, I can promise you that!
Riverdale Wired Questions -- With the Riverdale season three premier, PR videos of the cast are starting to circulate YouTube already from all the major entertainment media sites. The cast answered Google's most asked questions about each cast member and if you love the show, you'll love this video.
Tartan Phone Case -- It's October so it's about time I hung up the Lilly Pulitzer phone case and purchased a more seasonally appropriate phone case like this tartan one. What's even better?? I found this case for seven. dollars. It fits an iPhone 6/7/8 and again is only seven dollars. What excuse do you have not to purchase one?
New Balance 574's -- I purchased a pair of New Balance 574's my freshman year of college and once it turned cold out I put them in the back of my closet and never paid much attention to them after that. I don't know what made me pack them up and bring them back to school with me this year but I haven't stopped wearing them. The only problem is that they're just about electric green. Freshman year Lucy clearly didn't think and purchased an electric green shoe. I think a more toned down pair is in order. These are just perfect.
J.ING Brand -- I was recently approached by J.ING to collaborate with them on a blog post and after quickly navigating through their site of course I agreed. This clothing brand is absolutely beautiful and combines bold and romantic style for women of all ages. I'm already shopping these clothes outside of the collaboration because omg, are they just so adorable. The colors, prints, silhouettes and styles are can be dressed up or down and are perfect additions to my closet for the fall and winter.
