As much fun as new clothes can be, sometimes it's just as much fun to find new ways to wear old clothes. I wore this top a good bit last year and thought I had ran out of ways to wear it, but this cardigan and top both caught my eye and I decided they would be perfect together. A navy pencil skirt made a nice base. If you don't wear heels, this outfit could be dressed up with cute dressy flats. These just arrived at my house yesterday and I think they would be the perfect alternative to heels. I've never owned Sam Edelman but I thought the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale would be a good time to make the investment. I'm still trying to decide if I'm keeping them. I read lots of good reviews about the brand. If you have any thoughts on them, please share.

Of course the first thing I would wear from my Nordstrom sale purchases would be the Kendra Scott pendant. Deals like this don't happen often so this is a good price. 

For Five for Friday, I'd thought I'd share my five favorite beauty tips- the first three I've tried and the last two sound like good advice.

1. Wayne Goss uses tissue to help prevent creasing and caking of concealer.  I use this tip every morning. 

2. Applying powder before foundation- anyone ever tried that? It can provide a smooth finish but do make sure your moisturizer and primer are dry first. Here's a video

3. The best tips for shaving the bikini area without bumps and rash - this one.  I have a horrible time with bumps (TMI ?) and this tutorial has made a world of difference for me.  

4. Wayne also talks about getting rid of creasing after applying concealer in this video. A sponge and water. Simple! FYI- I love my Beauty Blender. Get a deal on a set now during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. 

What are your best beauty tips?
