    The News: Hailee Steinfeld Joins Pitch Perfect 2 Cast!We couldn’t be happier about our May issue cover star’s latest role! Director Elizabeth Banks tweeted the news to Steinfeld; shortly after she posted a pic of herself with the text, “Welcome to the Bellas,” on her Instagram. Here’s to hoping she gets her own song that hits the Top 40 charts a la “Cups” by Anna Kendrick. The Look: Rodarte Ankle BootiesMy Instagram has been blowing up with pictures of friends sporting these Rodarte ankle boots, and I think the jealousy has finally got me. The ’60s-meets-’90s boots look like what Twiggy would wear at the mod-est of her mod days, so, yes, I need them right now. The Face: Tarte Lipsurgence Matte Lip Tint in HopeWhen warm weather hits, there’s no time for putting on makeup--you could be outside! That’s why I hide away all my lipsticks and go for this lip tint from Tarte. It has a burst of color, goes on like a balm, and fits into every bag. Win-win-win.The Inspiration: Flower CrownsIs there a better way to celebrate May Day than with a flower crown?! (No.) I’m taking a little inspo today from the boys of Foxygen, who sported floral headpieces in the black and white photo above, and also from the flower crown I made last weekend for our Newsletter Editor, Jackie Yaeger, on her B-day. Making the crown was not too hard...OK it was sort of hard, but I’m pretty pleased with the end result. I promise I’ll do a DIY post on how to make one soon!The Song: “San Francisco” - FoxygenAnd in the spirit of Foxygen, I’m throwing back to last spring when their song “San Francisco” was the soundtrack to every picnic in the park.
