I really like how this outfit turned out—surprisingly I've never really mixed tan with red, but I also recently got this blazer and it's pretty much the only tan thing in my closet.

favorite cruelty free makeup / fall 2015

It's been a while since I did a post about makeup, so here are some of my favorites as of late—all cruelty free!

This was the first time I've tried Pacifica's skincare and I'm really impressed—I've been using it almost every day since I got it! It's great when I'm in a rush (aka every weekday morning) because I don't need to use a moisturizer beforehand, so it saves me a step. Highly recommend.

I have this lipstick in four different colors. Which should say enough, but honestly, it's awesome. It stays on for a really long time, the colors are great, and it doesn't dry out my lips. So far I have the following colors: Tokyo, Amsterdam, Antwerp & Prague. It's very likely I'll be getting more!

I started using this since my lips are usually fairly chapped and I hate when lipstick rubs off on stuff—this seems to solve both of these problems for me. Works really well with the NYX lip cream, too.

This has been my go to liquid liner for about two months now—the fact that I can use it interchangeably with my NARS liquid liner and it only cost $3 is extremely impressive. Really easy to apply, and dries quickly.

What are your favorite cruelty free beauty finds lately?

dead leaves on the dirty ground.

This was one of those outfits that I really liked until I saw the photos and then I felt a little meh about it.
Photos by my husband.

What I'm wearing:
Jacket: BB Dakota via Nordstrom
T-shirt: Target
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: Diba via DSW
Necklace: Francesca's
Eyeshadows: Urban Decay
Lipstick: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Amsterdam'

Just an easy, casual outfit for a Sunday. And it's chilly enough for me to finally wear the awesome vegan leather jacket I got during the big Nordstrom sale a couple months ago! Also, obsessed with this lipstick, and this color.

burgundy boots.

I barely took any outfit photos last week because of the awful weather (rain is not conducive to me looking cute or getting good photos), but I really liked my outfit on Friday so I tried my best to get half decent photos of it.

What I'm wearing:
Sweater: Old Navy
Shirt: Loft via ThredUP
Jeans: Old Navy (link)
Boots: Old Navy (link)
Necklaces: Francesca's, Loulou

The reason there is so much Old Navy in this post is because I just ordered these pants and boots and was so excited to wear them and they go together perfectly. Both are reaaaally comfortable. I had been looking at these boots since they had them last season (and I heard rave reviews from a good friend), and when they came back and went on sale I figured I should pull the trigger. No regrets. I also got at least 3 compliments on them the first day I wore them! Well done, boots.
