I blinked and summer is half over! I’ve been going back into the office more regularly over the last few weeks and am filling out my social calendar a little more making my July favorites perfect for those occasions and many more! My July favorites list features a long-time fave, a somewhat new fave, and a much-anticipated fave. Let’s dive in!
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Touch of Spice
Looking for the perfect lip for every occasion? Look no further than your favorite drug store or Target beauty aisle.
Two of my good friends introduced me to Touch of Spice by Maybelline in college, and I will never look back!
I’ve worn it in weddings, to work, on dates, to Target, to church — I’ve worn it everywhere!
Touch of spice is the perfect dusty rose color. It truly goes with everything and will go anywhere with you.
For only a few dollars, it’s worth trying to see if you love it too! I have lots of expensive lip colors from Sephora and Ulta as well, but I reach for this one more often than not.
The Louise Sandal in Leather
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect casual leather sandal for two summers now! I’m proud to report that I’ve finally found it!
What makes the perfect sandal? Gorgeous leather, skinny straps, and a low heel.
The Louise Sandals are comfy, classic, and casual but can also be easily dressed up for date night or for work!
I originally bought them in brown (my all time fave leather color, which appear to be sold out right now) but when Madewell had a unbeatable sale, I couldn’t resist picking up tan and black. I’m not ashamed to say, I now own every color the make.
But how do they fit? Beautifully! I’m an eight, and these fit great. I have narrow feet, and they work very well for me. I did add some pads under the ball of my foot to keep from sliding, but that’s the only alteration needed. Pretty minor if you ask me!
All in all, I 10/10 recommend the Louise Sandals. I’ve purchased Madewell sandals in the past and have been incredibly pleased with the craftsmanship and the longevity.
essie Gel Couture Nail Polish in Rock the Runway
Think red nails are only for the holiday season? Think again!
Rock the Runway by essie is absolutely perfect for summer! It’s bright, cheery, and red hot! The perfect choice for patriotic holidays and beach days too!
I’ve been wearing it on my toes all summer long and will likely wear it into the fall as well.
This red has a little more orange to it, which gives it a more summery vibe as opposed to the rich berry reds we see in the cooler months. However, you could totally wear this polish for Christmas and New Year’s Eve too! It’s sassy but classy!
