What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

What To Wear: Flirting With Spring

It’s still winter. It still feels like winter. It still looks like winter. I’m over winter, and ready to flirt with spring. Which means I need wear-now styles with wear-later trends. Luckily I recruited Linda to help us flirt with spring with some appropriate long sleeved spring dress styles!

Alicia’s Look:

Lemony Fresh in the Avon Jenny Dress

Lemony Fresh in the Avon Jenny Dress

I’m flirting with fresh spring colors and cutouts.  I’m a lover of all things lemon so I knew I needed this lemon dress with split sleeves and keyhole detail, the Avon Jenny Dress.  It’s so bright and cheery even on a gray and dreary day.  I belted the dress and bloused it over the belt to give it a better shape for my body.  Of course I had to add the Avon Sunny Days Strap Watch for that extra punch.  My earrings are also lemons but from last year, but you can get the similar look with these!  Because it is still winter, I needed to layer this dress with tights and boots, but not your typical black, but with navy!  What I also love about these tights are how comfortable they are, these Avon 2 pack Opaque Tights come 1 navy 1 black.  Perfect!

Linda’s Look:

Avon Betty Dress

Avon Betty Dress

Linda’s flirting with spring prints and details.  Linda took advantage of those sunny days and went with bare legs and pumps.  Nothing flirts with spring more than a fresh dress and bare legs.  The fun black and white print on this Avon Betty Dress works in every season.  The sleeve detail of piping and cutouts gives it a little extra flirty peek while still being easy to wear.  Plus, an easy to wear dress that’s a 1 and done kind of style is what we all need.  Pop on your favorite spring lip color and DONE!

Feeling spring with sunny days and bare legs!

Word On the Easy On The Eyes A Box:  I’d buy this box just for the dark circle corrector!  Seriously, one of my staples.  I have always had dark circles and this product actually works at minimizing them.  Paired with the Anew Hydra Fusion De-Puffing Eye Serum I seriously looks bright eyed and bushy tailed, even though I’m not.  My pick for this campaign to build a $40 order and get that A Box for $10 would be:  $5 for 20 lip products, 2 for $35 Hydra Fusion (Eye Serum and new Over Night Treatment Mask) so that’s $55 add the A Box, so $65 for $155 worth of product.  I’m currently stocked on Hydra Fusion so I’m getting 10 lip products for $40 and adding the A box so 131 worth of products for $50!  You can’t beat it!  Take advantage of the 5 for $20 and this A Box you won’t regret it!  Follow me on Instagram (@wordofalicia) for my lip of the day lip swatches to help you decide.

Being EXTRA every weekend is now my ritual!

This weekend I slept in my makeup 2 nights in a row. So some extra self care Sunday rituals were extra needed this past weekend. I used the Avon Anew Clean Daily Scrub mini in this A Box, along with Avon Anew Clean Cleansing Brush to wash away the weekend. I then used the Avon Anew Purifying Clay Mask to really go the extra mile. Sunday skincare masks are becoming my ritual. Followed up with the Platinum creams to really help heal that dry winter skin, so come today my skin is looking like we had a long weekend rather then a rough weekend. These are practical uses of this A Box.

Rain Rain Go Away…

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away

Its been a rainy January, which we need here in NorCal. Doesn’t change the fact that rainy days need an extra boost! Like a holographic a rain anorak, a bright cobalt blue sweater and some hunters!

Wearing:  mark. New Millennium Anorak, mark. Laced Up Sweater, Avon Ponte Knit Pants, Hunter Rain Boots.

Anoraks are a great staple for your jacket wardrobe.  They’re light and packable and extremely functional.  I’m really loving this holographic one from mark. with convertible sleeves but there are a ton of different options.  I also am really loving this cute gingham one!  If it is still too cold to wear a light layer then pair an anorak up with your warmest fleece or sweater, or over something like a fleece North Face Jacket.

You can shop my look over at the eBoutique.  Also going on over there a free sample of our unreleased but majorly hyped Honey Blossom perfume with any fragrance purchase.  Basically, you can try it before anyone can even order it!

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is behind us, January is set to easy mode. Time to reload and refresh. The new year brings its own set of challenges but getting ready doesn’t have to be one of them. Especially during these back to work weeks post holidays… ugh. As we get back to the grind I needed to make things easy.

Easy January Outfit

I picked up a few easy, go with everything pieces from the new Avon Go Easy Capsule collection, including this 4 pack Tee Shirt set, go with everything lucite earrings and a winter soft colored handbag to switch out of my holiday bag.  All these items are go-with-everything kind of pieces that make getting ready super easy.

For my easy back to work look I paired the cream tee with some pinstripe pull on pants (Express) and a lilac cardigan (Target and on Clearance).  Super comfortable and casual but still put together, easy for transitioning back to work.  To make things even easier I wore my flat riding boots (DSW but these ones from the collection are getting FAB reviews).

Word of Alicia:  I’m kinda over the moon about these Avon Modern Zen tee’s.  They come in 4 must have shades, cream, black, navy and slate purple which are super cool and on trend.  Excellent layering pieces with a longer line so you can wear them a lot of ways.  They can be dressed up or down or even for the gym.  Just something WELL worth your money.  I’m also over the moon about the Cosmic Constellation Necklace, it seriously is my everyday and just SO PRETTY.  Can layer it with other necklaces or wear a lone, can be casual, business, fun, you name it.  Definitely easy pieces and work with my look and will work with so many looks, so good they needed and extra call out.

Award Season Blues

It’s officially award season, which always kinda just sneaks in on me because… uh its also NFL Playoffs!  Which will always rank higher in my book, and, let’s be honest, getting the recaps the day after is just as good as watching the actual award shows filled with a million commercial breaks.  However, the Golden Globes from last night had me feeling blue for missing it, mainly because of all the amazing blue fashion!

Word On Golden Globes Blues

Word On Golden Globes Blues

Blue is my favorite color, which is probably why they were my fav looks from the evening.  GaGa looked so old Hollywood in her periwinkle.  Camilla Belle was a personal favorite and just loving the more teal hues on Amy Adams and Gemma Chan.  Let’s not leave out the beauty!  Camilla’s green eye, Gemma’s red lip, Lady GaGa’s hair and Lupita’s cobalt blue mascara!  I mean even those Fiji girls looked stunning in blue!

 

The Globes also had me dreaming of things all a little more glam.  I’ve been pretty comfy cozy casual lately with being a homebody over Christmas vacation and during these winter storms.  Avon has this glam jewelry collection launching Tuesday Jan 8th which I just kinda glanced over.  Now I’m kinda mega digging that blue set and maybe some glam earrings to work into my winter sweaters outfit.  How fun would these be if you do an Oscar’s viewing party!?  Plus they all launch at buy one get one 50% off… NEED.  I saw those Cluster Earrings on Heather, totally convinced me I need them.

Happy New Year!  I hope 2019 is off to a spectacular… or sparkling start!

Matte Sparkle for the New Year

Matte Sparkle for the New Year

My New Years Eve mani has become my new year mani. While going through my nail polish stash I found these super sparkly polishes from Julep, which are actually a matte.  Making this mani something a little different and with all the glitter I was already wearing, matte seemed a good way to go.

New Year New Flowers ;)

New Year New Flowers 😉

These also look WAY better in person! I couldn’t capture the sparkle, so take my word for it.  I was kinda hesitant to give up wearing red on my nails but this purple polish is making it easy to transition to the new year.  Plus, first post always has to be a new mani post right!?

In the winter sun, trying to capture the sparkle
