For this week's Friday Favorites, I thought I'd outline my summer skincare routine. A few weeks ago, I received a new facial cleanser that is formulated as an anti-aging product for all skin types. I tried it once, and really liked it so I ditched my tried-and-true Cetaphil. This was a huge mistake. While my skin was softer and brighter, it also started breaking out. Blackheads all over my nose, painful cysts on my chin and lots of redness. I gave it the benefit of the doubt, hoped it would clear up but...no such luck. So, it's back to my simple skincare routine as summer draws to a close!

I can't believe it's already Friday afternoon! This week just completely flew by with a trip to the Cape, a lot of work commitments and, of course, a massive amount of fun. 

For this week's Friday Favorites, I'm starting to think about transitional style for fall (no don't say it yet!) and, being a casual girl at heart, I love the idea of dressing up a graphic tee with high heels and a pop of color. I've always been hesitant about how to wear a midi skirt but I think TopShop's flirty style is perfect especially when paired with my not exactly famous tee! Nine West has once again teamed up with InStyle magazine for a capsule collection of shoes and accessories perfectly on point for Fall 2014! 

What are you excited to wear for the rest of this summer?

Have you been paying attention to Transformer's actress Nicola Peltz's style over the past six months? If not, you're the only one! From People to Fashionista, mainstream magazines and fashion's favorite voices are obsessed with the 19-year-old's transformation from Teen Queen to Style Star. As far as I'm concerned, Nicola Peltz is fashion's new icon!

A few weeks back, People actually dedicated an entire page to Nicola's amazing red carpet fashion and, even though I had no idea who she was, I was so impressed that I ripped the entire page out and put it up on my board. As Nicole continues her red carpet domination while promoting Transformers: Age of Extinction she is being styled by Leslie Fremar. I think it's the start of a looong collaboration, don't you?

Does Friday Favorites need to have a theme every week? I know I went "Pink!" for the first edition but I think it should mostly be a collection of things that I want or love right now. Mostly because these are all things that I want or love today...and that's all they have in common.

Having It Both Ways: The Maxi Mini Dress!

When it comes to dresses, I'm firmly on the mini team. Usually. I also haven't attempted any form of crop top since the 9th grade. So I was a little dubious when the woman at Intermix suggested I try a belly baring maxi dress from A.L.C. But I'm turning 29 tomorrow so I think it's about time to take some fashion risks!

I tried it on, realized it had a mini under the impossibly high slit, and I immediately fell in love. It shows off my legs, gives a glimpse of skin and covers all of my trouble spots! Can a dress be boho and sophisticated at the same time? I'm planning on wearing this maxi dress every single day!
