I absolutely cannot wait for cool/cold weather, and wearing skirts and ankle booties with leather jackets and cozy sweaters has me more excited than a kid on christmas morning. I’ve re-inspired myself by getting my fall and winter wardrobe ready, and so far, it’s looking good. Taking cues from fashion week with bold silhouettes, vintage inspired looks, street style and my obsession with leather and black, I’ve created some cute looks and outfit ideas for my two favorite cold weather skirts.
I love this midi 50’s inspired skirt because it just oozes elegance and city chic. Pair it with a rocker esq tee or a cropped sweater with cute shoes and you’ll have an outfit to die for. My other love, the classic leather pencil skirt, is just perfect for an every day glam look. You could wear it with just about anything and easily make it a day to night look with some extra accessories.
Check out these outfits! Have fun and experiment!
I’m so beyond excited for Fall to come! Cool weather, crisp, sunny days and hot caramel lattes are what I see when I imagine this gorgeous season. Things I’m excited to wear are ankle booties, fur vests and chunky knit sweaters. Not to mention smokey eyes and demure looks.
Check out this look! It’s so cozy and if the day turns out to be a little warmer than expected, throw on a t-shirt or a blouse and this it would still be city chic.

The pitiful thing about the Summer heat is that there’s nothing quite as glamorous as being hot and sweaty, with runny eyeliner highlighting the crevices under your eyes. Bronzer settled on your burnt cheeks and also in your neck in clumps of shimmery powder. This is tutorial on how to not let that happen.
Firstly, save your skin by drinking tons of water! (At least 8 glasses a day). Not only will this help clear your skin, but it will aid in getting rid of toxins in your body, alleviating excessive sweating. Secondly invest in natural, paraben-free cleanser, toner, a eye cream and a light moisturizer to help your face keep a natural glow and freshness. I’ve used Yves Rochers’ Inositol Vegetal line for some time and its proven beyond effective. A good facial in the morning and at night is imperative for your skin to be at its best.
During the Summer I like to keep my face free of layers of make up, specifically because it’s warm, your pores are more open resulting in the absorption of pretty much anything that touches your skin, resulting in break outs and all round feeling dirty. Keeping a fresh, dewy glow is by far the most attractive thing on a woman, especially if you have that sun-kissed look.
The key to keeping a fun, natural look alongside wild and fun hair without looking like you slept under a bridge, is by choosing your few Summer go-to cosmetics carefully. The first is a thin powder, the same shade as your skin to lightly dust over your cheek bones, nose, chin, forehead, center of the neck and collar bones. That takes care of any sheen you might have without losing the natural glow. If you need to cover some spots, choose your favorite concealer and lightly dab on before the dusting. The second is a light shimmery powder in a champagne color or something similar, but not white (I sometimes actually use eyeshadow). Take this and dust it on the tops of your cheek bones, tip of the nose and top of the forehead, this will highlight and cause that dewy effect. If you wanted to do a eyeshadow, I’d go for ones with natural tones that have a slight shimmer to them but not anything that will stand out, remember natural is key. Having a waterproof mascara will save your day if you decide to spontaneously go to the lake, beach or pool and you won’t be the one with black streaks down your cheeks. Invest in a gentle make-up remover to remove at night. Last but not least is two kinds of eyeliner. One liquid (waterproof of course) and one pencil. The pencil can be used to create a smokey look and the the liquid to create a cute cat-eye to keep your summer-look looking put together but still beachy, trendy and fresh. This whole process of application should take you no longer than 15 minutes giving you enough time to splash around and soak up those rays during the rest of the day! Keep your hair wavy and beach looking by spritzing it with a home made salt water concoction. This will give you that textured look too.
Enjoy your new makeover, eat healthy with fresh fruits and veggies and have fun!
Fall has come upon us and Winter is just around the corner!
For this seasons hottest nail colors in this cold, cold town we’ve turned to the comfort of the gem tones and the softs.
The lovely gems bring out that fantastic old world lux that screams “I eat candy with my fingers” and makes you feel that much more femme fatale sophisticated. This seasons colors are rich in elegance and full of glam, spanning from deep blues and purples to the glorious green and Christmas red. Nothing can stand in the way of the gems.
On the other hand the softs are those that invoke thoughts of kashmir sweaters and hot coco on crisp snowy mornings. The pale grays, hunter greens, soft cottons and light pinks are around this year to match our love of the cold seasons and are sure to bring warm snuggles and all round Holiday cheer. Essie has amazing color options but be sure to check out O.P.I and Revlon as well, the latter has an amazing line of quick drying colors in amazing hues. Have fun and dazzle away!
