Late Summer Nudes // A Well Crafted Party Late Summer Nudes // A Well Crafted Party

While I am not quite ready for Summer to be over yet… I’m also yearning for the cooler temperatures and warmer color palettes that Fall brings with it. Each year, as late summer comes rolling in, I start gravitating to more and more whites, light pinks, and nudes. It must be something about Labor Day heading my way (although, I’ve never been one to follow the no white after labor day rule!) or just the HOT August heat begging for lighter colors.

Outfit planning lately has incorporated as many whites, pinks, nudes, and golds as possible. I spent most my life hating yellow gold to only want it on everything I own now days. Am I just getting old or really falling for that trend machine that dictates everyone’s tastes? (Anyone else remember Josie & the Pussycats?)

Late Summer Nudes // A Well Crafted Party

Anyways, lately I’ve been digging on the nude collection of nail polishes from Crabtree & Evelyn paired with the high-shine liquid lipstick pens from Mally Beauty.

More about the Crabtree & Evelyn Nud-est Collection: I liked these polishes because they are easier on the wallet than some other brands (approximately $6) and go on easy with great color. I can NEVER keep nail polish on long… but, these lasted me longer than some other brands. I also liked how the different colors from the collection went well together. I’m forever stuck in the paint one fingernail different trend. The Nud-est Collection has Alabaster (creamy ivory with a bit of shimmer), Peaches & Cream (peachy pink), Almond (opaque nude), and Mocha (warm creamy light brown with shimmer).

More about Mally Beauty High-Shine Liquid Lipstick Pens: Typically I don’t go for high shine lipsticks due to the hair stickage problem that sometimes happen. Lately though I’ve been wearing my hair pulled back for work and pairing it with a pretty bare face. (Sleep time is greater than makeup/hair time currently.) The pretty shine of these pretty pink shades is perfect for a natural look with a touch of polish. I’ve been wearing my Blossom lipstick daily!

Outfit details: 

  • Shoes // American Eagle via Payless – These cut out oxfords are seriously my favorite new shoes (though, sadly, I don’t see them online anymore! similar here) My husband says they look like vests for my feet though.
  • Cropped cream slacks via Ann Taylor (last season)
  • White sheer tank via Anthropologie (three seasons ago)
  • Cardigan via Target (a million years ago)
  • Gold bracelet via Old Navy (in store only but it is the only thing I got so far this season! similar here)

Do you like wearing more nudes as the Summer is ending or perhaps something else? Comment below!

7 Days of Sun Safe Style with Summer Skin // A Well Crafted Party

 

Right after my skin cancer diagnosis I had the opportunity to meet the owner and creator of the sun safe fashion line SummerSkinSummer Kramer (yep, that is her name!) is seriously such an inspirational powerhouse of a woman that has really made a beautiful brand of clothing that can also help protect you. I was fortunate enough to be able to sample one of her creations— the Endless Summer Scarf. The Endless Summer Scarf is just too much fun because it can be worn so many different ways. I got the scarf the week before my surgery and had fun creating 7 Different Days of SummerSkin Style for my Instagram feed. Over the next couple of Curvy Girl Style posts I’ll be sharing some of my favorite outfits from that week! Check out all the styles I did by looking up#mysummerskin on Instagram! Check out my summer casual outfit post and my work wear posts to see other ways I styled my scarf!


Today I’m actually sharing TWO different looks I styled with the Endless Summer Scarf... each one styles the scarf in a totally different way. One outfit features the scarf as a shirt. I layered on the sunscreen and donned one of my favorite sun hats to help protect my shoulders and arms. The other outfit features the scarf as a skirt!

Sun Protetive Work Attire with SummerSkin // A Well Crafted Party

Last week I shared an easy, casual outfit perfect for a day by the river or out at the Farmer’s market. Today I’m sharing my favorite work outfit from the week. After reading about and seeing the image of a truck driver’s face and the way the sun damaged the side of the face with the most exposure I became much more aware of how much I drive how much sun my face and arm is getting while driving. I often don’t plan on being outside for long when I run out the door for a long day of work, so I don’t really think to put on a hat or extra sun protection. The Endless Summer Scarf has been a great accessory for me during my drives. So much so that I tend to just leave it folded up in my car when I am not incorporating it into an outfit. It covers the side of my face that the sun hits along with my shoulder. Then, when I’m done driving, I just pull it down to make a cute accessory to my work attire.
