Slouchy & Refined on Belle Belle Beauty

We made it! Home stretch of the week. Although I can say I have loved this little burst of warm air down here in Tulsa since everyone is complaining back East. I drove home with my windows down (it was 80 today). That’s not to say I am not wanting at least one good storm this winter. And we need it – dry as a bone. Meanwhile, I am working towards this slouchy but polished look above – I keep grabbing my wide-leg work pants lately!

Some finds from around the web – lots of links this week!:

Having major closet aspirations right now. This post by Lauren, has gotten me started. And yes, I purchased the book.

I just purchased these boots – I know I will only get to wear them for another couple weeks here in Tulsa – but I am trying to shop in the full swing of sales!

Absolutely adore my dear friend’s mani.

Beautiful post about life that is worth living.

Speaking of “off season” shopping, I just got this coat for an upcoming trip (snagged mine in all black) – major steals if you need a cute coat ALERT.

Desperately searching for somewhat reasonable layering tanks and tees – I have loved Vince and T by Alexander Wang but need something I can afford to stock up on. Any ideas? Comment here or hit me up on FB or Twitter if you have any brilliant ideas.

Loving this “new to me” clothing line!

I am always a little fearful of “smoothing” when it comes to hair products as I often find my fine hair limp and lifeless. But my fine hair also has the lovely quality of being slightly frizzy, so I do like the idea of some control. Agave Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner happened to walk that […]

With some sad news today: this Gap affiliate will be shuttering its doors around the end of the first quarter of 2015. But the silver lining is major discounts. While I didn’t shop the site often, I loved the curated collections from guests like Rachel Zoe and Olivia Palermo. Their brands resonate with my architectural […]

At the risk of sounding like a cliche… okay, I am kinda like one giant cliche.. but at least I own it. I am re-instituting some of my healthy habits this new year. I admit that the holidays were a bit of a free-for-all. And the new work gig has led to some laziness. Side […]

I know I get all hot and bothered about foundations frequently… especially those from NARS. But their newest formula is really worth checking out. Think weightless, long-wear and buildable. And just with one little tiny drop of product. Okay, fine… in the interest of full disclosure, I actually use 2-3 drops but that still is […]

I had to gather the troops to get today’s post to you. In the interest of reviewing for a range of needs, sometimes I enlist “Team Belle Belle” to give products a whirl. While I have fine hair that is easily weighed-down, I knew my buddy M would have the perfect hair to try this […]

Who is ready for Spring? Not me… I love winter. I guess I blame it on the fact that I always run warm hot. But leave it to Estée Lauder and Neiman Marcus to get all jazzed about Spring. Their new gift with purchase features a collab with New York fashion designer Lisa Perry and […]

I am always reaching for a lip balm, but this time of the year I seemed to constantly have one at arm’s length. No wonder I fly through them in a jiff. So I always appreciate a good value. These three are my three recent favorite budget buys: Softlips Cube Lip Protectant: My high school […]

Let me say this off the bat: this is a true luxury duo with a price to match. But when I showed up to lunch sans makeup except for these two yesterday, I was met with “Your skin looks so good! So dewy!” For me, that says quite a bit when I am going relatively […]

The latest and greatest, trendy food and fashion inspiration come to mind. So when iconic beauty blogger, Emily Weiss, launched a beauty […]

I had the most low-key, sleep-filled weekend and it was glorious. I was actually happy to turn the calendar page, put the holidays behind us and brave 2015. Which I know has so much good in store. It just called for a bit of rest, relaxation and reading. Speaking of reading, I just set a […]

I have to admit this was a welcome blog break – sorry for my sudden disappearance. I was in a bit of a holiday funk. Don’t get me wrong – I had a lovely time with family. I just wasn’t as jazzed about sharing looks or routines. And having analyzed my 250-ish posts in 2014, […]
