Romper in Charleston + Beauty Bar

charleston-romperromper-the-fashionistas-diarynordstrom-romperkendra-scott-taudrey-jewelrycasual-summer-rompercrochet-rompernecklace-detailssummer-romperI wore this adorable romper yesterday while exploring Charleston for the first time! It’s such a beautiful city… I’m already in love. But it is pretty hot. This romper was perfect because it’s light, easy and under $50! I also love that it looks like it’s a top and shorts instead of a romper.  I kept it casual with some sandals and a fringe cross body (my go-to lately). I do recommend sizing up, though. I’m wearing a size medium.

I brought out the turquoise from the bottom part of this adorable romper with my long necklace and then added in some Taudrey jewels to layer everything. I’ve been resorting to layering lately and these pieces are great for just that!

I actually took these photos right outside of Pink Dot Beauty Bar and afterwards I stepped inside to buy a brow powder and ended up staying there for over an hour! If you’re ever in Charleston, you have to visit this beauty bar. I had so much fun and got so many great goodies. I also got my makeup retouched by Demi, which was much needed. He was so great and kept my face looking natural and clean! See pics below. 🙂 I’ll post on Instagram later this week what I purchased… but here are the names:

  • Brett Brow Duo-Shade Brow Powder in medium (this is what I use to fill in my brows… I only fill them in where they need to be filled in and I usually use Anastasia but love this product!).
  • ELLIS FAAS Concealer in ‘fair’. Demi put this under my brow line and under my eyes and it instantly brightened up my face. I am obsessed!
  • ELLIS FAAS Bronzer.  I’m not sure what color I got because the bag is currently way too far away from my bed but each color will be different for your skin type! It applies so nicely. I got an angled brush to apply!
  • Eve Lom face mask. I was told this is amazing so I’m really excited to try it. It’s supposed to zap blackheads/pimples on the spot! I’ll keep you updated on my thoughts… 🙂

Have a great Tuesday and thanks so much for reading. Follow along on Instagram (@laurenashleypatao) and Snapchat (@laurenpatao) to see my adventures in Charleston! xo

PS. I bought this elephant tassel scarf at Pink Dot Beauty Bar because… elephant + tassels. Need I say more?! elephant-tassel-scarfpink-dot-beauty-barpink-dot-beautymakeup-artist-charlestonsummer-makeupThe finished product… (even my dad said something about it… and he never does! He made me go back and buy the bronzer! Haha). makeup-pink-dot-beauty-bar

    I can’t believe this is a romper! I absolutely love this on you, and I need Demi to hook me up the next time I go to Charleston! You’re lookin’ like a supermodel with that makeup.

    Love the romper!! Sadly I don’t think this one would work on me. I have the longest torso ever #tallpeopleproblems and have the hardest time finding rompers or jumpsuits that fit me. This one looks great on you, and I think it’s so versatile! You could totally style an oversize bf sweater over this on a cool summer night and wear the bottoms as shorts.

    That is the cutest romper!! I would have never guessed in a million years that it was a romper and not separates. I love that you can’t see an elastic waistband, I feel like it makes it more flattering than most rompers. Charleston looks beautiful, hope you’re having fun!

    This romper is everything! When I first glanced I thought it was shorts and top which is why I think I’m so obsessed – sometimes solid color rompers can be too overwhelming. Oh man I love this 🙂

    so glad you had a fun time in Charleston! We should get a group together sometime and head back! Oh, and you’re pretty much killing it in that romper 🙂
