friday favorites by everythingevelyne featuring off the shoulder tops

Happy Friday!!!! Today I wanted to share my favorite items of the week. If you put these together I think it makes a fabulous outfit. I just cannot get enough of off the shoulder tops like this one from Milly. I think it would look perfect paired with these Topshop jeans, and beautiful Christian Louboutin red heels. A pop of red in your shoes gives you that wow factor to an otherwise ordinary outfit. I also love these Kate Spade fun sparkly earrings (every girl needs some sparkles), this adorable leopard print clutch (I love leopard print paired with red and black) and my favorite Dior sunglasses. What are your faves this week? I would love to know so leave me a comment. Happy reading!!! You can shop my look by clicking on the photos below.

My Favorite Romper

Have you ever wanted to try a trend but were too worried to take the plunge? I love rompers and have worn them before, but I do think, "Can I really pull off this look?". I had to follow my own advice and step outside of my fashion comfort zone and give it a try, and I'm so glad I did!!!  When it comes to this Stevie Sister romper, from Modern Romance (one of my faves)  I have to say I am in love. I love the fabric, fit, length and colors. It is my favorite romper. 

I paired this romper with these adorable Coconuts by Matisse fringed booties (how amazing are these), and my Kendra Scott Necklace and I was ready to conquer my day (and bring it into night). I wore this outfit to dinner at El Ranchito (a local favorite Mexican place) with my family and some friends. So if you are on the hunt for the perfect romper I think this may be the one. Check out Modern Romance and Stevie Sister for this romper and my adorable booties. What do you think of rompers? I would love to hear. Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos and happy reading!!!!

Save vs Splurge

Save vs Splurge

Save vs Splurge by everythingevelyne featuring Joie

Don't you just love a great basic white tshirt? I am always on the hunt for the perfect white tee. I found this splurge option from one of my favorite designers, Joie. This shirt is just perfect-- I love the texture, the fit-- everything. But it is $248.00 (Ouch). I then found this save option from Michael Stars. I have been wearing Michael Stars t shirts for years and I love how soft they are. And this version above is such a great deal at $48.00. Whichever version you prefer, I highly recommend that you invest in a great basic white tee. Which is your all time favorite? Happy reading!!!!

Infuse the Night Vodka Tasting

I just attended the most fun event at Del Frisco's Grille at the Irvine Spectrum. It was a cocktail pairing hosted by my good friend Alyssa from Living in Style OC and Infuse Vodkas. I was lucky enough to spend the evening sipping these amazing drinks, eating delicious food while hanging out with the most wonderful blogger babes. What a perfect evening. Think wine tasting, but with different vodka drinks. 

I loved the creations made with Infuse Vodka. Each drink was paired with a different course of our meal. We started with a peach welcome drink, then moved into a lemon drink paired with shrimp ceviche, followed by a chili pepper drink (which was a my favorite) paired with pork belly tacos. Dessert was an orange clove drink paired with Nutella Bread Pudding (yummy), and an after dinner parting cinnamon apple drink (my other favorite).  This was such a creative culinary evening that mixed delicious food and drinks and wonderful company. Thanks to much Alyssa and Infuse Vodka. I had the best time. I highly recommend you check out Infuse Vodkas and try creating some of these drinks at home. Happy reading!!!!!

Friday Favorites by everythingevelyne featuring black flats

Happy Friday!!! Today I wanted to share with you my current favorite shoe-- Lace Up Flats. I typically am not a huge fan of flats, but I just love these lace ups. They are so unique and add a fun flair to a typical pair of ballet flats.  There are many different options-- different colors, suede, leather, prints. From the Steve Madden Eleanorr to the Aquazzura Christy, I love them all. What do you think of this current shoe trend? I can't wait to show I style these adorable shoes in upcoming posts so stay tuned. Happy reading!!!! You can shop my look by clicking on the pictures below!!

IT Cosmetics

I just received this amazing box of products from IT Cosmetics. They sent me their Top 5 IT Bestsellers and Confidence in a Cream. I have watched the IT Cosmetics infomercial (which by the way is so good), and have been told by my girlfriends how much they love these products. So when IT Cosmetics approached me, I was so excited to try these products out.

Confidence in a Cream-- This moisturizing cream is incredible. It made my skin feel soft and smooth. It also made my skin look healthier. I will absolutely continue to use it. 

CC+ Cream with SPF 50+-- I have been wanting to try this product for a while. I'm always looking for the perfect daily coverage that is just not too heavy.  I used it in the medium shade. What I loved most was that it provided good coverage and gave my skin that dewey look, while giving me an SPF of 50+.

Bye Bye Under Eye-- This concealer is absolutely amazing. It provided the best coverage without leaving creases. I loved this!!! 

Bye Bye Pores-- This product was the perfect translucent shade that matches all skin tones. I applied it with the jumbo powder brush. 

Brow Powder-- As I get older, I realize that having a finished set of brows is such an important part of my makeup routine. It really makes a big difference. This universal shade was great for me and matched my brows perfectly.

Hello Lashes-- This mascara has two advantages. It gave my lashes an increase of volume and an increase in length, all in one tube.

So I must say that I am a huge fan of IT Cosmetics. I highly recommend that you try some of these products listed above. I think you will love them as much as I do!!! Happy reading!!!

It's All In The Details

You have heard that expression, right? It's all about the details.  I am a sucker for details-- like this beautiful lace detail on this adorable dress from Holly Sharp Boutique. This lace detail is so romantic and creates an entirely different look. 

I decided to pair this dress with a great long necklace from Vici and my favorite black booties that I literally cannot stop wearing. I wore this dress all day from dropping off my kids at school to lunch with the girls to the bank and picking up the dry cleaning. I got stopped throughout the entire day, and every person said the same thing-- I just love this lace detail!!! Hahah!! So remember look for items to add to your current wardrobe that have some intricate details (like this lace). It will differentiate your whole look and make you look unique!!! Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos and happy reading!!!

Save vs Splurge

Save vs Splurge

Save vs Splurge by everythingevelyne featuring a black pullover

I am absolutely obsessed with caftans. They are so on trend for the upcoming spring and summer season. They can be worn as a  bathing suit cover up or as a great maxi dress. I found this amazing splurge option by Camilla. The colors are fabulous, but it carries a hefty price tag of $600.00. Then I came across this Theodora and Callum version from Anthropology. It is so beautiful and is $195.00. Whichever option you prefer, try to invest in a great caftan this season. How do you style yours? Happy reading and you can shop these looks by clicking on the pictures below.

Boho Chic Dress

 I love a good boho chic look. Boho chic is a style that includes flowy clothing, and vintage and ethnic inspired accessories. 

How cute is this boho style dress from one of my favorite boutiques Vici? This dress is so casual and effortless. I also love that it is comfortable and flowy. I decided to pair it with an adorable felt hat, Nordstrom black booties and my Kendra Scott necklace. I wore it out over the weekend for lunch with my family!!!  What do you think of the boho trend? Let me know in the comments section. I hope you had a great Valentine's weekend. Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos and happy reading!!!!  You can shop my look by clicking on the pictures below.

Akris Punto at Neiman Marcus Fashion Island

Cathy and I and some beautiful blogger babes attended the Akris Punto Fashion show at Neiman Marcus Fashion Island, showcasing the new spring collection. Edwin Gierbolini hosted the show. These designs were so beautifully created. I was so inspired by the wonderful colors, textures and fabrics. Each piece looked comfortable and versatile enough to be worn day or night. I had the best time and was in awe of this amazing collection. Thanks to Cheresse Pantella Public Relations Manager at Neiman Marcus and to Cathy Cordas for photos. What do you think of this incredible collection?
