Haute Off the Rack and I are kicking off our summery style series with a bit of flamingo and donut antics. Sometimes, I wish our shoots together were videoed… leaping around with inflatables and yard decorations can make for some serious entertainment. But how CUTE are these summer tees from The Elizabeth Chronicles? The snoball diet tee is always a favorite, and their new pink pineapple top is sure to be just as popular. These TEC tees are full of personality and make me want to grab a fruity drink, plop right onto the beach and not move for days.
Check out the rest of the TEC summer tee collection HERE.
AND look forward to many more beachy looks that Jenn and I have coordinated to get you guys vacation ready!
I’ve already shown a couple of posts on what I’m wearing, what invitations I’ve made and what wedding details I’ve been putting together, but I haven’t shown you what products I’ve been using to put my best face forward at all my wedding events so far. Plus, I’ve got a bit of a confession to make… I’ve never really used a foundation before, so with parties and showers in the forecast, I knew that I’d better find one that I trust and fast. Since I pretty much only wear powder, it was perfect timing that bareMinerals debuted their very first liquid coverage product – bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation.
This bareSkin product is a tone-correcting mineral foundation and brightening serum all-in-one, but more importantly, it contains no oils, no silicone, no water, no parabens and no fragarance. It’s literally a foundation that was 20 years in the making. Needless to say, I was convinced that I needed to give it a try, and now I’m such a fan that I’ve teamed up with bareMinerals to tell you how bareSkin is the perfect choice for busy brides.
The first opportunity that I had to try bareSkin was right after it’s debut and just in time for my bachelorette party in Vegas. The great thing about this foundation is that it can be used for light coverage or full coverage depending on how much product you use. A couple dots of product onto the foundation brush’s center opening will give you light all-over tone correction – the perfect amount for traveling. Add more product to get full coverage that’s perfect for a night out. I was able to use bareSkin for both day and night while on my trip instead of using two separate products like a tinted moisturizer and another foundation – bareSkin acts like two products in one!
Can’t wait to show you more posts coming up with bareMinerals!

Okay you procrastinators, you’re running out of time to get that perfect Mother’s Day gift, but luckily for you, today I’m hosting a giveaway with Laura Row Studio that will make for the absolute best gift!
I haven’t done a print/art post in a very long time, so today’s post is well overdue. I had so much fun styling these little vignettes for today’s photos too. I’m excited to introduce you to Laura Row Studio! In her own words, Laura is a watercolor artist with a “focus on frivolity.” She loves painting pretty perfume bottles, fancy desserts and famous ladies. TWO readers will win prints by Laura to either keep for yourself (tsk, tsk) or give to a lovely mother (way to go, daughter of the year!)
For the glamorous mom, we’ve got a selection of perfume prints. I’d love to hang these in a powder room or on top of a vanity. For the home decorating pro, there’s a lovely floral arrangement print, that would look oh-so elegant on a gallery wall or on a well-edited shelf.
So it’s your pick! Which one would you love to give your mom on Sunday? Here’s how to enter:
1. Follow @KrystalBennett on Instagram
2. Find the giveaway photo posted this morning
2. Tag a friend who you think would love Laura Row Studio
This is a super short giveaway in order for the winners to receive their prints in a timely manner. For that reason, the contest will end tomorrow at midnight to ensure the prints will ship out on Thursday morning via Priority Mail.
