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:
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.
