Shearling + Fire

Gosh, red lipstick is hard to pull off sometimes, right?  Finding the right shade of red is the first challenge, but then I feel like the entire time you’re wearing it, you’re constantly nervous about whether it’s migrated outside your lip line, onto your teeth, or onto whatever you’re wearing.  It’s hard to relax when you’re wearing a red lip.  I’m always on high alert.

So needless to say, I was terrified when Julie told me she wanted to try something bold, and subsequently retrieved the loudest, brightest red lipstick out of her makeup palette.  I’m pretty sure I looked horrified.  But when Julie is having a beauty ‘vision’, you don’t question it.  You just go with it.  You close your eyes and let her make a masterpiece.

Behold… Julie’s signature cat eye liner with a super-mega-bright lip… yes you can pull off both at the same time 🙂

P.S. – I stalked this shearling bomber jacket from TopShop for MONTHS until they re-stocked my size.  Yes, the collar was a little overbearing at first, but it always makes a feminine outfit just a little bit grittier, tougher.  Check out the link to the faux one below by Lily Aldridge for Velvet…

Hunter & Highland

I’m so thrilled that it’s almost officially Winter… which means it’s more like Fall weather here in Florida 😉

It’s easy to swap out your footwear to make a warm-weather outfit into a cold-weather outfit.  Throw on some over-the-knee boots with that summer dress, and a leather jacket, and you’ve got a whole new look.  These are the Stuart Weitzman Highlands.  Perfect.  In every way possible.

Or, my personal favorite is wearing my Hunter boots with EVERYTHING.  Mine are the Hunter Tour packable version, with a narrow calf and more flexible fit compared to the originals.  I needed them here since my photographer extraordinaire, Kari Jenkins, has been dying to shoot at the Walter Jones Historic Park.  So we trudged down the path and found the perfect ray of sunshine 🙂

Stay warm, everyone!
