What I Bought at the Sephora VIB Sale

what i bought at the sephora vib sale rachel puccetti between two coasts

Happy Sunday, my friends! Today is the last day of the Sephora VIB sale, so I just wanted to pop in real quick and share what I purchased from the sale! Sephora is definitely my happy place (lol!), so it was the perfect way to spend my Saturday afternoon 😉 Some of these are items that I love and re-stocked on, and others are new for me!

#1– IGK Laid-Back Defrizz & Anti-Static Spray: If you read this fun facts about me post, then you know I hate static, especially in my hair, haha! When I came across this product, it was a given!

#2– NAILS INC. Moisturizing & Anti-Aging Hand Mask

#3– Sephora Collection Orchid Eye Mask: I am currently loving sheet masks, and I always love grabbing new ones to try! There’s masks for your hands, lips, eyes, face, etc. and they’re each only around $3-8!

#4– Sephora Collection Shea Lip Mask

#5– Peter Thomas Roth FIRM Peeling Gel: This stuff is the BEST!! You will seriously be amazed at how much it exfoliates off of your face! It leaves your skin feeling so smooth and free of dead skin, and helps your makeup go on much smoother!

#6– Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast: I have pretty fine, smooth hair, so I need anything that gives it texture/volume, and I’ve heard that this does exactly what it’s called– a serious volume blast! Can’t wait to try it.

#7– Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush: I have to admit, I was drawn to this at first just because of how pretty it is, lol! I’ve heard so many great things about Hourglass products though, and love trying new blushes!

#8– Peter Thomas Roth Pore Putty: I’ve been on the hunt for a pore minimizer, and absolutely love everything Peter Thomas Roth does, so I’m super excited to try this out!

#9– beautyblender

#10– Cookie & Body Ice Cream: Again, I had to buy this just because of how cute it is (it seriously looks and smells like ice cream when you open it! Check it out on my Insta Stories!) You can never have too much lotion on hand, and it would also make such a cute gift!

#11– First Aid Beauty Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes: Pretty excited to try these. This girl needs any extra help she can get to wake up in the morning! Also love all of the other FAB products I’ve tried.

 I’d love to hear what you purchased from the Sephora VIB sale, or which one of these you want to try, too! Xo, Rach

Friday…I’ve been waiting for you! I am so ready to get this Easter weekend started! I have been anxiously waiting for this relaxing weekend with family, and cooking up a yummy brunch–my favorite meal 😉

Today I wanted to share one of my current obsessions– gingham! Every year when spring/summer comes around, I can’t help but wear gingham on repeat. No matter the color, and whatever the style, it’s such a fun and essential pattern for your warm weather wardrobe! Last weekend I purchased this gingham peplum from the Victoria Beckham line for Target, and all I can say is one word…perfection!! I’ve never met a peplum I didn’t like, so add on gingham and I’m so in love. I also purchased the matching pants (stay tuned for the look next week!) Along with this top, I wanted to share a bunch of other gingham cuties I’m crushing on!

I hope you all have an amazing and blessed Easter weekend with your loved ones! Thank you for stopping by! Xo, Rachel

Let’s Talk Sunnies

Alright friends, let’s talk sunnies! With sweet summertime right around the corner, and festival season just a few days away, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite pairs of sunnies! They’re such a fun accessory to play around with, whether it’s an essential pair to accompany you poolside all summer long, or the perfect pair to complete your festival look for that “cool girl” vibe.

When it comes to sunglasses, I’m not a big spender unless I really love them. I prefer to find one or two essential pairs that I invest in, and the rest I love to find cute, trendy and affordable pairs for the season. The one thing I always look for in sunglasses is that they’re oversized! My Karen Walker tortoise ‘Super Dupers’ are without a doubt my most worn and absolute favorite. I’ve had them almost 2 years, and they never go out of style. They’re the most expensive pair I own, but are still reasonably priced compared to some designer sunnies. I also really love my Ray-Ban aviators, and have them in a couple different colors!

As far as trendy, affordable sunglasses go, I’m obsessed with Quay! They have SO many cute styles, and I love how different they all are (and most are oversized!) They’re such great quality at a great price point, and they also tend to have a lot of designer look-alikes! I have these and these. Another hidden gem for affordable sunnies is the BP. ones! They range between $12-14 and I must say, the styles are on point this season! You almost always can find a designer dupe with BP. sunglasses, which is nice if there is a designer pair that you love, but they’re just too trendy to splurge on.

Above I’ve linked a couple of my favorite splurge pairs, and below are a bunch of my fav affordable pairs…you just might find a look-alike ;)!

How To Dress Up Your Favorite Jacket

how to dress up your favorite jacket rachel puccetti between two coasts utility jacket with pins rachel puccetti between two coastsBow Pin: Cara

Yay! It’s finally Friday! Today I wanted to share a quick, fun little post with you all on how to dress up your favorite jacket. Whether it’s your bomber, well-loved denim jacket, or your favorite utility jacket, there is a super cute (and easy!) way to instantly dress it up–put a pin on it! My favorite being a bow pin, of course! I also love one that adds a touch of sparkle. I’m just obsessed with the feminine, and fun touch that pins add to an otherwise basic jacket. With Paris right around the corner, you can bet that I will be putting some cute little pins on my trench coats and motos! Below I have linked a bunch of pins that I just can’t get enough of!

Leather and Lace

leather and lace style blogger rachel puccetti between two coasts white dress and leather jacket rachel puccetti between two coasts leather and lace outfit ideas rachel puccetti between two coasts white dress and moto jacket rachel puccetti between two coastsDress: ASOS (old, similars linked below!), Jacket: Topshop, Shoes: Adidas, Bag: Gucci, Sunnies: BP., Lips: Lipstick- Mehr

I’m a sucker for a little white dress, especially one with lace detailing! While I am naturally drawn towards all things pretty and feminine, I definitely love playing around with pieces that are a bit more edgy, for a little feminine meets masculine look.  Which brings me to leather and lace…one of my all time favorite combos! There is just something I love about the look of a leather jacket paired with a feminine silhouette, with black and white being a classic pairing. This look feels so effortless, yet chic and  cool. Add a pair of sneakers for a sporty vibe, or a killer pair of heels for a nighttime look!

This lace dress is my absolute favorite from last summer, but I have been on the lookout for a few new ones for this season, and I have linked a couple of my favs below!

I hope you enjoyed this leather and lace look! Xo, Rachel

Styling Your Moto Jacket For Spring

 Happy Monday, everyone! I hope all of you enjoyed your weekends! I finally went to see Beauty and the Beast and it was SO good! Have any of you seen it?

One of my most worn pieces from this winter was my moto jacket, and although it’s now spring, I still love it just as much! During the winter I had been pairing mine with darker color combos like black and burgundy, but I am currently loving finding all new ways to wear it and lighten things up! Today I wanted to share a few tips on styling your moto jacket for spring, so that you can still get just as much use out of it!

1. Pair it with a light, flowy top/tank, or a cute graphic tee! Recently I’ve been pairing my jacket with some of my favorite white, feminine tops for a springtime feel. I also love wearing a cute graphic tee underneath.

2. Wear your favorite pair of wedges. All winter I had been wearing mine with booties, and I just love how refreshing and cute a moto jacket looks paired with wedges! These nude, perforated Marc Fisher ones I am wearing above just happened to perfectly match the color, and perforation detail on my jacket!

3. Pair with denim/cutoff shorts. As it gets warmer (we’ve been SO rainy here) I can’t wait to pair my jacket with denim shorts, and wedges or a fun pair of sneakers!

The jacket I am wearing above is a recent favorite purchase (under $50!!) and I just love the neutral color of it (also comes in a pretty light grey). This is the moto jacket that I wore all winter, which I am sure you’ve seen everywhere–it was crazy popular and really is such a great one! It now comes in SO many cute colors for spring, and I’m totally tempted!

So whether you’re looking for ways to style your favorite moto jacket for the new season, or currently looking for the perfect one, I hope these tips gave you a few new ideas! Below I have linked a couple of the jackets that I am currently loving!
