  Lip Pencils (Praline & Crushed Berry): also known as lip liners. They always sound a little scary to use, don’t they? Maybe you’re envisioning the a frosty light lip outlined in a bold line that’s anything but natural. Get that pout out of your head. I discovered fairly recently that Lip Pencils can be an incredible product for wearing alone or layering under lipsticks for longer wear. Since my biggest issue about lipsticks is that I have a hard time following the shape of my lips, having the precision of a lip pencil is a really helpful way to prep for a…

Resort Swim 2016 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/29/resort-swim-2016/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/29/resort-swim-2016/#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:15:46 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=24413

  Knowing that Cover Swim (the sun-conscious line of swimsuits and clothing by my friend Lisa) was going to be part of this round-up means that I’ve been watching the site like a baby hawk. Cover’s cool collab with GLASS – a men’s line of swimwear line by designer John Glass known for their inventive and bold prints – features three styles of suits and three fun prints. The Cover x GLASS suits are exclusive to Moda and my love for the suits makes me pretty positive I need one for myself. I already have a long-sleeve one piece suit by Cover…

Dark Summer Staples in Three Looks http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/28/dark-summer-staples-three-looks/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/28/dark-summer-staples-three-looks/#comments Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:00:43 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=24373

  Look One: I’ve been binge-buying stripes like it’s my job. This dress kind of has stripes but the jacquard detail helps it feel more textural than graphic. I probably wouldn’t typically go for the gathered and A-line skirt style but the relaxed fit keeps it loose and really ideal for summer. It’s been a perfect dress for wearing causally with flip flops or making a little more “fancy” with wedges. Look Two: black shorts were on my list of “to find” when I started the summer. The one pair in my closet were from my college days and let’s just say I outgrew…

Lace Romp http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/27/lace-romp/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/27/lace-romp/#comments Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:00:18 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=24352

  Rompers take the guesswork out of matching a top and a bottom but offer more coverage than a dress with the short-style bottom. Even though you have to get naked when you go to the bathroom, the style is a great summer staple. This romper is especially great for high heat because the white color and lace texture do wonders for camouflaging sweat. Does that make me sound disgusting? It’s hot, I tell ya! I’m sort of terrible for talking about my love for this romp when it’s currently sold out – but I linked some similar and equally fab options below!

Longhorn Tray Styled Two Ways http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/24/longhorn-tray-styled-two-ways/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/07/24/longhorn-tray-styled-two-ways/#comments Fri, 24 Jul 2015 12:29:34 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=24327

  Here is the great thing about trays – they are the perfect blend of form and function. Not only do they look great in a space, but they can be used to catch and hold all kinds of bit and pieces of everyday life. The key to tray styling in any situation is to use the right scale (you’ll know if one looks too big or too small for a specific spot) and try to find ones that are unique and special to you. Sally’s Styling: “I’m a coffee table book collector. I know, I know – what girl/blogger isn’t?…
