HAVE YOU CHECKED OUT SKINSTORE.COM YET?









All products c/o SkinStore

A while back, SkinStore.com reached out to me to work together on promoting their site and y'all, I'm hooked. The site carries all the best brands; the ones we've all heard of (Sunday Riley, Skinceuticals, Karuna, etc.) along with so many that I had never heard of before.  Two of my favorite products I tried were the Perricone MD Firming Neck Cream and the Decolletage Creme from PRAI.  As I just turned 30 (ugh), these products will be stocked on the regular.  Another favorite was the sunscreen from NIA24..because sunscreen usually smells terrible and this smells so good.  Seriously.  It's also the perfect size to take with you wherever you're going; beach, work, wherever.  I was also sent a ton of the Karuna masks which are my absolute favorite.  I've included them in probably all of my beauty gift guides if y'all have been following along.  Last, but definitely not least was the silicone beauty sponge they sent.  Guys - this thing is a life-changer.  I thought I loved my BeautyBlender (and still use daily), but then I tried this and am obsessed.  Because the sponge doesn't absorb any makeup, you're told to use half the amount you typically would with a sponge and it maintains the same amount of coverage.  It's pretty crazy how much makeup you're saving when using this thing.  I couldn't find the one they sent on their website (probably because they're sold out), but just trust me..here's a link to a similar one.

Thanks so much for SkinStore.com for working with me!

TIE-WAISTED SHORTS AND A CROP TOP YOU CAN PULL OFF












top:  Zara (similar) // shorts:  Zara (similar) // wedges:  H&M (on sale!) // bag:  Cult Gaia // sunglasses:  Celine 

Guys, summer is here.  It's about 650 degrees in D.C. today..but it's fine..except for most of my wardrobe consists of cardigan sweaters and cashmere..but like I said, it's fine.  Could be worse?  

Luckily, I found these shorts and am obsessed.  I think I've already worn them about 5 times and it's not even July.  They're also under $30. Yep!  Thinking I may have to find another pair of shorts in linen if this weather keeps on keeping on.

Also, I've been super duper slacking, but two more weeks and I'll be pretty much done with school (insert 'praise hands' emoji here).  Now, what to do once it's over..?  

Hope you all have a fantastic week!

THE PANTS I WORE TO THE OPENING OF LADURÉE













top: Petit Bateau // pants:  Zara (similar here, here, and here) // shoes:  Joie // bag:  Gucci // sunglasses:  Celine // watch:  Michele // jewelry:  David Yurman

Happy Hump Day! If you follow me on Snapchat (@lehmala) and/or Instagram Stories (@laura.lehman) you saw that I '"graduated" this past weekend. I was able to walk in the ceremony because I only have 9 credit hours left that I will finish up this semester. I started my summer classes literally the day after I walked which was definitely a little weird, but I am so so ready to get this semester moving..so it can all be over and I can get back to blogging on a regular basis. These once-a-weekers (if that) are killing me.

Onto the outfit: to be completely honest, I've only worn these pants once. I was invited to the opening of Ladurée in Georgetown (how that happened, I will never know) and it was the perfect event to wear something like this to. I wore a different top/shoes, but honestly, these pants can be mixed and matched with a ton of things, so I plan to wear them again to another event in about a month. Now, I know a long-long time ago (3 years, but who's counting?) I said I would never wear culottes. These are the exception and probably the only exception..and that's because of the tie-waist. I am a sucker for the tie-waist. I also suggest that whenever buying culottes of any kind, go one size smaller than you'd typically wear. While the waist may be a bit snug, it makes a huge difference in the leg.

THE JUMPSUIT THAT I DON'T HATE

















jumpsuit: Lanston // sandals:  Vince // bag:  Gucci // sunglasses:  Celine // watch:  Michele

Guys, obsessed would be an understatement.  I usually hate (loathe, whatever you want to call it) a jumpsuit.  It always looks horrendous on me, but I gave it another chance.  So glad I did.  I saw this on Shopbop a while back and loved the cut of the top, so order I did.  It came in the mail and as soon as I touched it, I knew I'd be keeping it.  The fabric is so incredibly soft.  I've worn this to a formal event, I plan to wear it during the day, and really..I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up sleeping in the thing..it's that comfy.

Anyways, lesson learned.  As much as you hate something, might as well give it another try..you never know!  Oh - and that advice is specifically for clothes..not life..
