The Best Beauty and Fashion Collaborations to Know About this Year

Collaborations in fashion and beauty, whether they be luxury brands partnering with department stores or celebrities partnering with mainstream brands, have been quite successful. We’ve seen demand for these collaborations crash websites (a la Target) or so far exceed supply that products sell out within minutes of launch. So, these collaborations are not going anywhere. Listen, the partnerships slated for this year need to be on your radar.

What I love about these partnerships is they offer superb products at price points that are affordable for many. Let’s get into the best beauty and fashion collaborations currently available or launching soon.

Fun Summer Dresses to Live it Up in the City

Last Friday was my only day off, my one day without a major deadline. So, I decided to throw on one of my fun summer dresses and enjoy the day out in the city. Since I had made poor food choices all week, my first stop was the Juice Bar in Rock Hill. I simply needed to remind my body what good food tastes like.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress (alternative style) | Sandals c/o (also seen here) | Tote | Mac “Heroine” lipstick

First on the menu? A wheatgrass shot, of course!

While I decided on what I wanted to eat, I couldn’t resist one of the new summertime smoothies. This Mo-Mint in the Sun smoothie caught my attention because it was made with dragonfruit. It also coordinated well with my dress. By the way, how gorgeous is the multicolor print on this dress? It comes in two dress styles–the ruffled style I’m wearing (shop it here) and this knot-front style. The print is also available on a top (see it here).

Here’s the limited Mo-Mint in the Sun smoothie available at the Juice Bar at Rock Hill.

I finally decided on the raw spring rolls.

The gluten-free peanut sauce that accompanies these rolls is the tastiest ever.

Disclosure: Thank you to the Juice Bar Rock in Rock Hill for hosting my visit!

Wear Your White Jeans Without Worry this Summer

Listen. My white jeans work overtime during the summer. From holding down a casual all-white party ensemble to cinching together my picnic styles, my white denim stays on repeat. Need proof? You must see these 12 Stylish Ways to Wear White Jeans Right Now.

After publishing that post, I heard concerns from an overwhelming number of you. “I’m afraid to wear white jeans to a party because they attract stains,” said one woman. “I don’t feel comfortable sitting anywhere in my white jeans,” said another. “How do you keep your white jeans clean, Psyche?” you asked.

My answer to that question might surprise you. I simply don’t sweat it. I live my life in my white jeans–I party outside, and I sit down in them. And, when they get dirty or stained, which they often do, I stay calm. Stains come out. Usually.
