French Dressing...clair

French Dressing 2

This is a lighter take on the chic French girl uni and one that I saw more and more as the weather got warmer. I previously noted the amount of Longchamp totes I spotted around town but Louis Vuitton handbags are still tops in Paris. Simple metallic touches and a colorful scarf keep this monochromatic ensemble from looking too flat. When hair wasn't worn down a sleek topknot was worn instead.

{ I love to put my name or initials on anything & everything. 
I fell in love with these small, pink letter pins that I've attached to my work bag. }

{ my lovely friend Flo gave me these awesome bobby pins! }

{ this Navajo inspired blanket sweater from Old Navy is so cozy and colorful! }

{ my new favorite snack...delicious and packed with goodness! }

{ do you by chance remember a Starburst commercial from a few years ago featuring a "little lad" that gets giddy for berries & cream? Sadly, my brain retains this type of information rather than more important things. I've been playing the commercial over and over for my little boy which is how we stumbled across the above makes my kid giggle and that makes me giggle. }


The Cosmetic Market...

I'm being completely serious when I say that my jaw dropped when I walked into this local Nashville chain for the first time. I stood just inside the door trying to take it all in and determine my best route around the store. The space is sparkling clean and bright and the bakers racks seem to go on forever. The selection of high end beauty booty was staggering and there were even a few brands I hadn't yet heard of. There's a small hair salon in back as well as one skin treatment room but I didn't have time to try out their services. Hands down The Cosmetic Market is by far the best large scale cosmetic store I've ever visited...

My view from the sliding market doors...isn't it pretty?

My favorite Emi-Jay hair elastics in fun colors and patterns.

The most obvious way to sell hair appliances is to let the customer try before they buy.
I adore the curly, orange electrical cords hanging from the ceiling.

The newsstand and some of their market bags for sale. 
Refreshments and snacks are also available but not pictured.

Baggu bags (my faves) and a few other lifestyle accessories.

A play area for the juniors so Mommy can spend money...genius!

Clean Scene is a teen skincare line by Murad and starts at $16.

LAFCO's Little Luxuries soy blend candles smell lovely and come with their own box of matches contained in the lid (which doubles as a stand for the candle when burning). To me, these tins scream "HOSTESS GIFT!"

The cleanest and most complete selection of Mario Badescu I've ever seen.

I will definitely visit The Cosmetic Market every time I happen to be in Nashville and I suggest you do the same. Plan to take your time and to spend some coin...
