Style Sunday: Striped Pants and Fall Colours…

Hey y’all!

Quick style post today. Just wanted to quickly share this fall outfit I threw together today. It is COLD here where I live and I needed an outfit that was functional, warm and comfortable as I needed to wear it to church and to an event today.

Let’s start with the pants. I found them at Forever 21 ( surprise surprise lol) These pants  are a polyester blend, high waisted pant. Extremely comfortable and warm. These pants were a little on the pricey side for me ( y’all know I’m a bargain shopper)  at $24.90 but I do believe these will be a staple piece in my fall wardrobe so I’m sure I’ll get my money’s worth! 🙂

I paired the pants with a white cold shoulder blouse that I believe I purchased at a store called Sirens a year or so ago. I can’t remember what the retail price was but I do believe it was between $10-$15 dollars.

To finish off the look,  I added a Burgundy felt hat and camel colour tie -up mule shoes, both from Aldo Shoes.

To keep me warm, I wore my dark camel coloured double breasted pea coat. I purchased this coat from H&M and it retails for $69.99. This is one item I didn’t mind spending a little more on as it is an everyday piece.

I kept my makeup simple nude lips( Kat Von D “Sanctuary”), Naked Heat Palette (shades “Ember” “Scorched” and “Low Blow”)  on my eyes with my Fenty Beauty black eyeliner.  (Flyliner) I set my face with Ben Nye Powder in the shade “Chestnut” and that’s it!

I’m liking the 70’s inspired pieces that are coming out this season!  I must admit I wasn’t feeling it at first, but once I took some time to put some pieces together, I’m finally feeling a vibe! Looking forward to sharing some more pieces with you in the coming weeks!

What is  your fall style leaning towards this year? I think I’m gonna be hobo chic 🙂

Till next time…

Beauty Blog: Favourite Fall Lippies!

Hey guys!

Alas, the beautiful fall season is upon us and although I will wear any shade of lipstick in any season, there are a few shades that I particularly gravitate towards when the weather gets a little cooler!  I’m going to share with you some of my faves!

You can never go wrong in any season with a nude lip. There are two very similar shades that I like to wear particularly in the fall

Lolita- (Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick):  A nude matte lipstick with pinkish-purple undertones. I pair it with Mac’s Chestnut lipliner. This product is extremely long lasting which is why I love it so much! One application can literally last you hours!

Whirl-( MAC) A matte finish dirty rose shade.  I love it for the days when I just need a quick wash of colour on my lips, not necessarily all day wear.  I also pair it with Mac’s Chestnut lipliner.

The next shade I want to talk about is also from MAC. It’s not new to the Collection, but its new to my Mac collection 🙂 . It’s a shade called Antique Velvet. This is described as a intense brown, and that it is! I had been searching for a shade like this for such a long time! Paired with a brown lipliner, this is a perfect fall shade that transitions well from day wear to evening play!

Next up, I’ll return to the Kat Von D line. The shade Vampira is literally one of my favourite lipstick products of all time! There was a point in time where this was sold out in every Sephora and online! When I finally got my hands on it I was not disappointed!  This is a deep burgundy colour with red and brown undertones! I really love this for the evening! Paired with a smoky eye, its amazing! Run out and get your hands on it as soon as you can!!!

A very similar shade to Vampira is the shade, LAX from Colourpop.  GUYS…. this is new to me. I had many great things about this shade and had seen it used in many a YouTube makeup tutorial. I finally gave in and ordered it and honestly its on trend to be one of my favourite lipsticks of all time!  A warm reddish brown that is perfect for a night on the town. I have even worn this in the day with a simple black liner and a light coat of mascara! Amazing!

Finally, the fall wouldn’t be complete without a few dark vampy purple shades.

Chianti from the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick line–  A deep plum shade perfect for a night on the town. If you are looking for a shade that will compliment a super dramatic look, try this one out!  I also love MAC’s Smoked Purple which essentially a dupe for Chianti. I pair both with MAC’s Nightmoth lipliner for optimal precision!

Finally, I’ll leave you with a perfect reddish plum shade for everyday wear. It’s the shade I usually reach for  when I’m heading to work. Simple and understated, yet still noticeable. This shade also comes from the Kat Von D line and it’s called  Exorcism ( creepy name but beautiful shade!)

So that’s what I’m wearing this fall! What are you wearing? Anything not on here that must try? Let me know!

Till next time,

P.S you can never go wrong in any season with a classic red lip. I am particularly loving Beso by Stila right now! 🙂
