April Favorites

April favorites are here, and as I was linking March's favorites it feels like March was so long ago! Does anyone else feel that way?! I packed so much into April, and we are already over a week into May! Wow!!! For those of you who may be new here, I round up my top favorite things each month. At the end of the year, I pull items from this list for a 'favorites' list for the year. If something makes this list, it's the best of the best of what I recommend! You can check out past favorites lists at the bottom of this post! 

Flat Claw Clip// This is one of the greatest inventions in hair accessories, maybe ever. It works similarly to a claw clip but it is flat against the head so laying down and driving in a car is so easy! I prefer the size large!

Necklace// This is such a fun necklace that gets many compliments every single time I wear it. It's a statement but not obnoxious. 

Concealer// This is one of the best makeup products I have tried in a while and maybe the best concealer I've ever tried. I bought it on a whim during the Sephora sale in shade N2 (I'm shade II and IV in Westman Atelier and Linen and Ochre in Merit). I haven't looked back since. It has medium to full coverage. It blends so well and sits on the skin in a way that looks so natural. If you only pick one item off of this list, this should be it. This will surely make the end of the year favorites list! 

Tinted Lip Balm// One of you recommended this lip balm/gloss/stick hybrid. I love the Tarte juicy lip product but I don't love the coconut scent to it. It's so overpowering. This is almost exactly like the Tarte Juicy lip but without the coconut. It is so great!

Anti-Humidity Spray// I used this every single night in Mexico. You just spray it on your hair once it is styled and it cuts down on the frizz. It really works and while it doesn't keep frizz away entirely, I felt that the high price was worth it. It also smells incredible.

Sunglasses// An inexpensive Target find that is supposed to look like Loewe. I don't necessarily care that they look like a designer, but I just think they are fun and I love all of the colors that they offer. They give me Palm Royale vibes and the quality is shockingly good for the price. 

Pajamas// Newly obsessed with these pajamas. I have a few pairs from ages ago and just kind of rediscovered them. They are pima cotton so the same fabric as Lake Pajamas. The heart print is a classic. Apparently, Roller Rabbit is 'preppy' according to tween children. I had no idea but one of you all sent me a Reel about what 'preppy' means to young kids these days. It's wild, it is NOTHING like what it means in the traditional sense. According to TikTok tweens, preppy is Aviator Nation (colorful pricey sweatsuits), Drunk Elephant (skincare with bright caps), Loveshack Fancy (think modern day Laura Ashley), Roller Rabbit, Lululemon, and more I have no idea about. I kind of chuckle at it but it also makes me feel OLD. 

Striepd Top + Shorts// This is a set I'm reaching for over and over because it's cute but it's basically like wearing pajamas. You can wear either piece by itself, too. The shorts look so cute with a chunky navy sweater. 

Nightgown// This is a new-to-me fabric and I love it so much. It's soft and super lightweight so it is perfect for the summer heat. I love nightgowns for travel and also love to wear this kind of thing in lieu of a robe while getting ready. I think this will be cute as a swimsuit coverup, too. I got a size small, it runs very roomy, you could even size down. It has a swing shape to it.
