Kansas City style expert and Silpada co-CEO Kelsey Perry dishes on how to stock up for warmer weather.

J.Crew Always Chambray Shirt

It’s really hard to find the right fit in a button-up, and J.Crew always nails it. I’ll wear this with basically anything—a leather jacket; a romper; shredded, distressed jeans. $78; jcrew.com

Rhonda Allison Citrus Gel Cleanser

I learned about these products from my aesthetician at Holly Day Spa in Kansas City. They’re all-natural, and she uses a lot of citrus, so they’re fragrant and give you that tingly feeling—but no harsh chemicals. I used this entire range while I was pregnant and nursing. $30 for 4 oz.; spa-santa-cruz.com

Santa Fe Necklace

I love turquoise and that Western bohemian look. I like that this is a longer length so it actually elongates the body and makes you look taller and slimmer. $249; silpada.com

Pureology Strength Cure Cleansing Conditioner

I’m trying to limit actually shampooing my hair to once a week to protect my color. I use this on in-between days, because it doesn’t strip hair of all of those healthy oils that are great for your hair and scalp. $34; pureology.com for salons

Vince Camuto Franell Notched Block Heel Bootie

These booties are basically the best transitional piece I own. You can wear them with jeans or tights when it’s still chilly, but they’re also great with bare legs and a pencil or skater skirt later on in the season. $159; vincecamuto.com

Benefit Cosmetics Hydrating Fakeup Concealer

I definitely have the new mom dark circles. Ugh. This covers them right up and actually contains a moisturizer to plump up any lines you may have. My other secret for looking awake: Skip the eyeliner because you don’t want too much dark color near your undereyes. Instead, just top lids with a great shimmery shadow and finish with a little mascara. $24; benefitcosmetics.com

OPI Nail Lacquer in Big Apple Red

Classic red isn’t just for the holidays—I’m really loving this shade again for warmer weather. I haven’t had a manicure in so long because of the baby, but this reminds me that I need to treat myself, stat! $10; opi.com or salons 

Monroe Crossbody

It’s crisp and fresh and easy to wear. It carries just enough, but it’s not a huge bag that weighs you down. It’s the perfect size for the essentials—wallet, phone, keys, lipstick, sunglasses. $149; silpada.com

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Violet Volt

I love a bright berry on the lips. This is my new favorite shade—it’s bold but not abrasive. (Really! It may look crazy in the tube, but looks pretty on everyone.) $5.99; milanicosmetics.com

Zahara Wristlet

It's beautiful and functional with a hint of leopard print and a place for everything. I store my lipstick in the back, where the coin purse is. It's not too big and not too small, which I love because I can move it from my purse to the diaper bag really easily. $149; silpada.com
