beauty edition: bobbi brown at neiman marcus

Bobbi Brown lipstick shades for Fall, Bobbi Brown lipstick, Neiman Marcus beauty, Neiman Beauty counter essentials, ShopStyle Collective, new fall lipstick shades

Anyone who has been reading this blog for awhile now knows I gravitate towards lipstick. It's in my nature. When I want a pop of color I swipe a bright red or a burgundy— especially come Fall— but this season I'm mixing it up and trying out different hues. That's where this gorgeous Bobbi Brown lipstick trio, exclusive to Neiman Marcus, comes into play. The shades are all sorts of delicious for Fall, and look even better paired with a chunky turtleneck, skintight skinnies and stiletto ankle booties. 

While I will definitely be upping my Fall beauty game by incorporating these beautiful lip shades I don't plan on stopping there! Neiman Marcus has all the brands a girl can want and dream of. I for one need a rich moisturizer, illuminating powder to bring some pep to dull Fall skin, rich eye liner shades, not to mention a good mask

This slip dress is the 90's dress of my dreams, it was also my rehearsal dinner dress (!)— it was perfect for the occasion with it's low back, whisker lace details, and skinny spaghetti straps. More often that not a special look purchased for an even more special occasion doesn't get the re-wear it deserves, so I wanted to try and style this look in a different way than I wore it originally. I'm loving the 90's punk elements from the Neve Campbell-esque choker to the Shannon Dougherty leather moto. Perhaps the 90's trend has finally caught up to me, either way when the occasion arrises I will definitely be styling this dress again.

Where did Summer go? Seriously, I don't even remember feeling the sun on long lazy weekends, drinking wine in the park on a day where the sun didn't go down until 9pm or jumping in the car to head out on an impromptu drive to somewhere warmer. Time goes by way too fast and I need to learn to slow down and embrace being in the moment- as it may be one in a million. 

And just as Summer slips away, Fall is coming in strong. This past weekend I was shocked to see a supermarket stand full of pumpkins in all sizing staring at me. Shocked. It really felt like Summer had been skipped altogether with my traveling, wedding planning, and the San Francisco weather always feeling so fall-like anyway. 

This time of year is one of my favorites and I can't wait to embrace pumpkin spice-everything, bolder red wines, the Fall cable lineup and a thousand good reasons to wear all my chunky knits! Speaking of clothing, the color palette in this outfit above really reminds me of Fall- the warm shade of the moto jacket, the vivid jewel tone of the corduroys mixed with the crisp white shirt and those killer pumps make for one perfect Fall outfit. OK, Fall I guess I'm ready for you.

Those crystal clear blue waters behind me are the Caribbean, which surround the tiny 1.5 square mile island of Little Corn, 43 miles off the coast of Nicaragua. Jumping in those blue waters were every bit as enjoyable as you'd imagine them to be. If you were following along on my Instagram or Snapchat (carlinaharris) you saw me enjoying myself in Nicaragua for two big reasons- my wedding (!) and subsequent honeymoon. They both took place in and around Nicaragua. Here is the first of many posts to come with sneak peeks into those moments. 

This dress was probably the first thing I packed when getting ready for my trip, not only was it stunning on the hanger but it begged to be worn on an island getaway. The peek-a-boo cut outs covered by dainty lace inserts, the super long length of the frock, the modern racer back, and the low- cut neckline made this dress one of my favorite things to wear on the trip. I may or may not have worn it a few times- on different islands, of course!
