Hi, Friends and Happy TGIF! 

My apologies for a late post today. I had an allergic reaction to something I ate yesterday and was literally down and out in bed for half of the day. I now realize I can’t eat Panda Express (sad face) anymore and so many of you reached out letting me know I’m probably intolerant to MSG. Thank you to each of you who contacted me! I also had no idea there is a fairly high level of sodium in their food that caused me to become extremely comatose with a horrible headache. It caused me to get a tad behind so I’m quickly trying to catch up! 
I decided for today’s post I would share an incredibly versatile black maxi dress along with my favorite full face makeup products. The dress is sooo comfortable and a piece you can easily dress up or down depending on the occasion. It is long so if you’re short like me you’ll want to get it altered or wear it with a tall wedge like I did above. It’s also a great dress for travel as it easily folds up and can be pulled out for casual lunches, nice dinners…you name it, it works! For something fancier, I would add a statement necklace or earrings. I’m wearing my favorite pink statement lip & liner to give the look a little color. It’s matte and the liner is long wearing so it lasts all day (seriously). My bag is from Stitch Fix so I’m linking some similar above. They are both a part of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale! 
See below for my full face makeup favs and check the Half Yearly Sale tab at the top of the page for all of my Nordstrom picks. Many of them are under $50 and things are going fast!
