A Festive Outfit + My Favorite Red Lip for the Holiday's

IMG_1586.jpg

Confession: My mind has been on everything CHRISTMAS lately! Who else!? I think a lot of it has to do with working in retail, the mall was decorated with Christmas lights and Santa’s Village two weeks ago! We started getting our Pre-Holiday looks a month ago and this week we put out a reindeer sweater, so it’s basically Christmas in retail world.

I shopped the Sephora Rouge sale last week and one of my goals was to find the perfect Christmas red. I picked the boldest, brightest, cheeriest shade I could find - did a test on the back of my hand, and was sold! More about my new favorite lippy later, first I want to share this outfit with you!

I got this sweater (comes in three colors) a month or so ago and fell in love with the dark green color! I was aimlessly walking through Nordstrom, when this sweater caught my eye! The striped fringe sleeve is SO much fun, without being too much. I mean talk about a statement sleeve!? I paired it with this camel colored wool skirt for a more casual look. If I wanted to dress up this look, I would pair it with a black leather skirt and lace tights! I topped it off with my favorite plaid scarf and my black OTK boots.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Sweater / Skirt (similar) / Plaid Scarf (similar) / OTK boots (similar) / Sunglasses / Red Lip

THE BEST RED LIPSTICK FOR CHRISTMAS

That’s right, I admitted it. This was the first red I picked up off of the sample wall and I fell in love. When I went home and put it on, I was pleasantly surprised! When I walked into our room Eric said, “Whoa! I like that lipstick!”. Winner, winner. I always go for deep colors, so this bright red is such a fun change! Plus, it screams Christmas! This matte color is called 714 and it’s a such a beautiful shade! My skin is pretty fair, but I imagine it to look great on several different skin tones. If you’re wondering how my smile is so bright, check out my secret here.

Casual Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas + Traditions

Casual Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas + Traditions

I always loved Thanksgiving growing up. My family celebrates holiday’s rather simply. Growing up, it was always just my immediate family of four and my grandma. As I grew older, moved to a different state and began a retail career - time spent at home on Thanksgiving started to disappear. There was no time to go home when I had to work Black Friday the next day. So I stopped traveling home for this holiday.

A Transitional Fall Look

A Transitional Fall Look

This week Starbuck's infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte was released, I looked at a few fall decor posts and I found Halloween candy at the grocery store. This week I felt like fall was pushed on me. So many other bloggers are posting full-on fall outfits and while everyone is sharing adorable looks, I can't help but think how hot they must be! Haha! While I'm extremely excited for fall (it's my favorite season), I just can't get myself to share chunky sweaters and boots until the weather participates! I want to share transitional looks that still get you excited for fall, but can also be worn now. I've been sharing a ton of transitional fall looks on my Instagram, but once I got this dress I knew I had to share on the blog!
