H&M Red Carpet Dresses Go Green April 12th

Did you know H&M is launching another exclusive collection from their eco-friendly Conscious Collection? Imagine that! I usually don't get psyched for these "exclusive collections" but this one is truly one of a kind. All the dresses are red-carpet inspired by celebrity looks while also maintaining a green conscience. This season's collection is made entirely of organic cotton, hemp, and recycled polyester.The collection will be available starting April 12th in select stores and prices will range from $69-$299. In hopes that I actually can make it past the NYC fashion madness, I have handpicked my faves.

The pink sheath slit skirt deal is my absolute favorite look. Reminds me of the Michael Kors piece J.Lo wore  last week. Here's to hoping it's available at my local H&M and under $100. See the rest of the collection here.
Which ones would you wear and where to?

Flower Woman: 3 Ways To Wear Floral Pants

I too am just coming out of denial that floral pants are back in style. In 2000, I was wearing them like they were going out of style. Little did I know I'd be a 20-something grown woman reliving this look trying to bring them back in grown woman style. I love that floral pants make an instant statement but they can be a little too girly if. I myself prefer a more mature womanly look so here you have it; 3 ways to wear floral pants about town without looking like a flower girl.

Day & Night Beauty & Skincare Must-Haves

Lately I have been beating myself up a lot feeling that my skin is glowless and my makeup dull. It's always these moments when you are being too hard on yourself that someone else randomly affirms you against your own self-loathing. I was walking through Zara on Friday and  a woman approached me and asked, "What do you use on your skin? It's flawless!" Seriously, where was this women 3 weeks ago?! After weeks of beating my skin up and worrying about late 20s aging signs, the universe just affirmed that I'm doing something right. So in celebration of my skin, I thought I'd share with you what I do to keep my skin looking great day and night as a busy, working, girl about town.

These products are my tried and true favorites and take me from work to networking- beauty intact!
