Amid massive buzz and hype generated from the appearance of YouTube and beauty blogger sensation, Camila Coelho, Caudalie opened in Brickell City Centre, Miami. Below is what I wore to the opening.
What I Wore:
Dress: Joie (similar here and here) // Shirt: Ann Taylor 'Perfect Shirt' (the best work button down, get 40% of using Ann Taylor Promo Code TOPS40)// Shoes: Banana Republic Green Suede 'Canta' Heels // Clutch: Banana Republic Floral Clutch

Layering a dress over a long sleeve, button down can be a great trick for adding options to your wardrobe. A few years ago, I wore a crisp, white shirt over a grey work shift, as seen below (here is the link to that post).
This year, the dress and shirt were both loose fitting and flowy. It created a different look that was a little bohemian and a little pilgrim, but also fun. While less work appropriate, the look stood out in a sea of form fitting, too-tight bandage dresses, and was easy to wear.
Caudalie gifted us some products and this Beauty Elixir (with bottle designed by Jason Wu) is awesome! It's strong, herbal sent fades quickly (thankfully) and you're left with beautifully glowy skin. Use it before your makeup to prep the skin, and after, to set your look and make everything meld together. I set my makeup with this and then spent four hours outdoors, in the Miami heat. I came home, looked in the mirror, and was wow'ed by the fact that my makeup still looked great.
