Dressing Feminine

The last days of fall are upon us and before winter comes I wanted to wear a few skirts before another cold front comes. Days before I took these pictures in the beautiful weather it was snowing in Texas! Definitely crazy and oh so beautiful!

It’s easy to style a feminine look especially with a skirt and some heeled booties. Showing off your legs with a heeled shoe really elongates the legs and puts emphasis on your calves. I also think the sweater is a great feminine color because it is like a muted purple. Light pinks and purples are great colors to wear for a more girly look. Another easy way to make an outfit more girly is to wear a statement jewelry piece like a pair of tassel earrings or a collared necklace. Lastly, curled hair and a bright lip goes a long way! Styling up you best features are definitely the way to go!

I cannot tell you how obsessed I am with these shoes! I love the way they look with the ripped sweater!

Styling Nude Leather

Layers are definitely the way to my heart this season. One of my favorite materials is definitely leather. From my black leather skirt to this nude leather jacket, leather is definitely the perfect layer. I love the fold over of the jacket and how easy it is to throw on for a day outfit or a night outfit. This piece can definitely be worn with all white, black jeans, or even a LBD.

The color is perfect because the nude goes with almost any color and is not over bearing. The inside of the folds are a suede material and really compliments the outside leather. I would definitely pair this look with a pair of cute reflective sun glasses to really make this whole look super chic. I would never really wear white on white with this much nude but I liked how the jacket has just enough pink to add a little color. The lace also adds a little something to the outfit especially because it balances out the leather with a little lace.

Sweater Season

Forever wishing that it got just a little bit colder here in Texas! I almost envy watching other bloggers be able to bundle up in their layers of coats and cardigans just to go out for some coffee. While it does get a bit chilly, it never even snows which is a complete bummer! Sitting by a fire is definitely one of my favorite things to do during the holiday season.

Sweaters are always my go-to for the cooler seasons because they are easy to throw on. A sweater with a great material can dress up any outfit, and paired with the right skirt can turn a daytime look into a night out outfit. I paired this sweater with white jeans (yes I know it is after labor day!) and tied the front even though it is a high low sweater to give me more shape. I wore it to a Christmas lighting and I kept with the brown and wore my favorite brown booties.

Even though I cannot buy many thick coats or jackets, a sweater is always my go-to. Here are a few sweaters on my list of favorites, all under $45!

Holiday Break

Christmas Season has officially begun! TBH I have been wanting to celebrate since after Halloween. However, I am finally getting to see all of the lights and Christmas trees everywhere and that makes me so happy. Christmas music is my absolute favorite! Not like jingle bells but like the religious Christmas songs are my favorite like “Silent Night” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Being reminded of the reason for the season definitely makes it all worth it.

If you’re like me, a college student going home for the break, you get a little bored being home for an entire month. Even if you’re not like me I wanted to include a list of holiday things to do over the break to keep you in the mood all break long. I listed some of my favorite things to do as well as favorite treats to eat below!

Things to do:

Watch an holiday movie, Make some gingerbread cookies, Buy some new fuzzy socks

Have a bonfire, Roast Marshmallows, Eat a peppermint stick

Go ice skating, See the lights downtown, Take a picture with Santa Claus

Have coffee with a friend, Go pick a Christmas tree, Create a holiday wreath

Give to a child in need, Decorate for the Holiday, Make an old family recipe

Throw a Holiday Party, Go out with a Santa hat on, Listen to an entire Christmas album all day

My Everyday Makeup Look

I always make posts about my current favorite clothing pieces, but I wanted to share a few of my must have beauty products. These are my go-to products and when put together it is my go-to makeup look for the day. I have used each of these pretty much daily and while I have tried other products these are my necessities. I listed all of the colors as well that go with my skin tone!

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer – Golden Neutral $28

I love this foundation because it goes on smoothly and has great coverage without being heavy or cakey. It covers up everything but is very light! It is hands down my favorite foundation I have ever used!

Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade – Dark Brown $18

I am so not good with brow pencils! I have tried so many brow products but this one was the easiest to use! I use an Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow brush to apply the pomade and it really stays well!

Lorac Baked Satin Blush – Velvet Rope $10

I have used this blush forever! I also love dandelion by Benefit Cosmetics, but this shade really goes well and is not over bearing. I think I have more orangey undertones and this shade really compliments that.

Two Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer – Medium to Deep $30

This bronzer literally smells like chocolate. Need I say more?

Carli Bybel Palette By BH Cosmetics $21

I use the top colors of this palette for my eyeshadow (mostly the bronze-y brown) and the bottom left highlighter to highlight my cheeks and nose. I use the other colors as well but those two are my favorite products.

Sephora Long Lasting Eyeliner – Black $12

Long lasting Liquid eyeliner is a must. I love this one, honestly I do not use too much eyeliner, just a simple black line is perfect for my everyday look.

Ruffle Sweaters

Not only is pink my favorite color, but most shades of pink look great on my skin tone. Feminine pieces like this are definitely my favorite, and the ruffles are definitely my favorite part. I am such a girly girl that I just knew as soon as I saw this sweater that I had to have it! Between the color and the sleeves it was a must! I love how well it goes with the denim and the top is not long enough to cover up my behind so I did not want to wear it with leggings or jeans. I just love these booties as well so I love any excuse to wear them.

Here are a few of my favorite sweaters with ruffles for you to check out
