Blush & Citron






citron sweater, old {similar style/color, v-neck} | distressed jeans, last season {this season HERE} | blush reversible tote {available in 4 colors!} | blush lace-up flats | flower earrings | Karen Walker sunglasses {25% off with code INTHEFAM until midnight tonight!} | YSL lipstick {beige tribute -- obsessed with this color!} NARS lipgloss {turkish delight}

Wow! Thursday already?! These weeks are just flying by! Today's post is brought to you by some serious wind haha! In all seriousness, when we shot this look Sunday morning after church, the wind was absolutely crazy!!! It may look like a gentle breeze from these pictures, but let me tell you, we were working with some insane conditions. It's a miracle we had anything usable, but they did turn out pretty good, all facts considered ;) **And thank you to my fabulous mom for shooting both outfit posts this week! My husband, who usually takes my pictures, was out of town. I'm so thankful for both of them!!**

We all know my love for blush {exhibit A, exhibit B} and now that we are have reached April, {technically, I can't say "now that the temperatures have warmed up" because I wore my PUFFY WINTER COAT to work yesterday!! Seriously??} I'm starting to incorporate brighter colors into my wardrobe. I love the mix of this super bright citron with the soft blush -- it's a fabulous juxtaposition and it matches these fun floral statement earrings perfectly! 

I may have mentioned this reversible tote that I bought last year, but I haven't actually worn it on the blog. Which is super funny because I use it all the time in "real life". Usually, it serves as my camera/computer/chargers bag, but it's so versatile that you can easily carry it as a handbag too. {It also comes with a wristlet attached to the inside of the bag, perfect for your phone, money, etc...} This particular blush tote is reversible to a beige, but it is also available in a few other colors too {you can shop them HERE}. 

Lastly, I had to share this new lipstick with you that I picked up last week at Sephora. As much as I love my go-to lipstick/lipgloss combo that I mentioned last week, the lipstick is running low and I was looking for a replacement for summer. After trying a few neutral/beige colors, I decided on this color from YSL. Although it is a little more expensive than other lipsticks, I really love the color and it's super glossy look and feel.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are heading to the beach tomorrow to celebrate Miss Ella's birthday. As of now, the forecast is looking pretty cold, so we are hoping that will change! Follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy} and Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7} for more of Ella's trip. Just wait, she is one crazy pup at the beach :)
