Summer Of Style

1000 667 Brighter BOLD by Cara Newhart

I popped by the Summer of Style event at Cherry Creek Shopping Center last weekend and it was seriously so much fun. The event featured complimentary mini makeovers, hairstyling and spa treatments - plus mini bites, summer sips, and delicious sweets. Oh, and giveaways like concert tickets and $500 shopping sprees.

There's two more events going on today (July 22nd) and next Saturday (July 29th), so if you're in Denver I definitely recommend a girls day out at the mall getting pampered (for free) and maybe hitting up the Nordstrom Sale afterwards.

The events are from 1-3pm in the Grand Court (by Neiman Marcus), which is decorated in beautiful flowers and totally instagramable. 

Here's the list of (uh-mazing) prizes you can win these next couple Saturdays:

Hair Styling 

Aveda had stations set up at the event to style hair, including braids and mini up-do's.

My stylist, Stephanie, used the Shampure dry shampoo to add some volume to my roots and then applied the dry conditioner to my ends to give them a boost of moisture.

The dry conditioner was awesome because it added noticeable shine without dampening my hair and causing frizz like other leave-in conditioners I've tried.

 Mini Makeovers

I didn't have a chance to get a makeover myself between all the snacking and taking blog photos, but a couple makeup artists from MAC were set up doing personalized makeup applications.

They were seriously amazing. We chatted about how on point their colorful glittery eyeshadow game was when I can barely manage a simple smokey eye. I wanted to spend an hour or two in their chair just picking their brain and having them teach my how to do my makeup (way) better.

My Look

This pleated camisole has been one of my favorite summer tops - I have it in both burgundy and powder pink which is a really pretty blush color. The burgundy is a great transition piece moving into fall since it's perfect for layering.

My shorts are also from H&M and under $25. I'm obsessed with the scallops on the bottom hem and they are so comfortable! They also come in multiple colors.

You might recognize my shoes from this spring outfit, but these lace-up heels have been one of my top two go-tos all summer. I got these earrings on sale and it doesn't look like they are online anymore so I linked a similar style below.
