Outfit of The Day: Wide Cut Blazer

At the recent re-opening of H&M on Newbury Street I may have helped myself to a few things to get me through the summer to fall transition. One of those items is a floral print wide cut blazer, below. The blazer is a bit different, not only from the obvious floral pattern, but because of the interesting cut. To me it's a blazer meets kimono meets I-will-be-wearing-a-lot-of-this, this fall.






Saks Black Label Queenie Leather Ankle Strap Sandals - $130
7 For All Mankind Gwenevere Super-Skinny Jeans - $134 (Regular $178)
Sisco Berluti Pink Jade Bracelet - $68
Victoria Secret Ballet Top - $19




A big shout out to Lindsey of MoreAwesomerBlog.com for playing dress up with me and snapping the above photos.

Have you been over to the new H&M on Newbury yet?! Did you score anything great?

Gal's Guide: Tryst Studio, Hingham






I recently enjoyed a night at Tryst Studio in Hingham to celebrate Alexis Kletjian's debut jewelry line (more to come on that next week) and was treated to a little pampering. Kelly, Tryst's owner gave me the scoop on one of their most requested services, the good ole' eyebrow wax, as Vanessa from Without a Measuring Cup enjoys above.

Remember, brows are sisters not twins, so don't sweat it if they aren't identical. One of mine has a hook that drives me CRAZY, but the Tryst gals were able to soften it with a little shaping. Of course, waxing isn't for everyone, make sure you aren't on any antibiotics or retinols before your appointment, as these can cause the skin around your brow to thin. Thinned skin can pull when waxed, causing irritation, which isn't a good look on anyone! Before your appointment, put down the tweezers for at least two weeks, as close to four weeks as possible is highly recommended for the esthetician to be able to shape you into beautiful face framing full brows.



The second step to perfect brows, is the filler. I had only ever tried an eyebrow pencil, but after using Trysts' angled brow brush and powder, I wouldn't go back. Using powder creates a much softer look, as you can feather in as much as you want for any level of drama. After the powder is on, give the brows a good brush, from the bottom up, and you're good to go!
