Cat Nap: A Series

Every then minutes or so I would look up and mr. kitty would have rolled over or stretched out into a new oh-so-comfy looking way.

"oh hi, u been watchin me?"

Moody Florals

And we thought it was cold in October! You won't catch me in anything less than a down coat and cashmere scarf today, with a high of 30° 

But this floral print mix look from October cause my eye this morning when I was scrolling through my camera roll to find something - the dark moody colors are perfect for a cozy fall or winter look with accessories in gold and white and a black coat over the top of it all. 

I've always loved the vintage sewing machine walls at Allstaints. I remember the first time I saw it at their store in Boston, back when it was called Allsaints & Spittalfields and their line was much more edgy and artistic, less mainstream than they have become today. This sewing machine wall pictured here is in their Soho store in NYC, where I found some cute and edgy pieces in the sale section - I'm actually wearing a sweater I got there today! It's a black knit with cold shoulder cutouts and a flutter hem in a small pink floral print. Feminine and chic in a very New York way with moody florals, much like the dress I wore in these photos! 

It's going to be cold in NY alll weekend - Stay warm my friends!

Lip Looks

I popped into e.l.f cosmetics recently in search of a fall berry lip color with a sheer finish (nothing too bold) for a subtle moody lip. I came across some really good finds that I wanted to share! Not only did I find exactly what I was looking for with this sheer deep berry gloss, but I also found an awesome hot pink lip color too - and all at really affordable prices. 

The pink lip tint color goes on really pale and pearly at first, but with a pH technology that reacts with your skin it turns to a brighter shade of pink for a fun pop of color. the stick goes on super smoothly and is great for a quick touch of color at a moment's notice! 

While the berry lip oil looks pretty rich in the tube, it is really so subtle and yet adds just the right amount of deep berry color for me - it's nothing dramatic but looks great with a fall or winter color palette. The gloss goes on easily and isn't too sticky so it wears nicely for just a hint of a fall lip look. And to top it all off these lip colors were only $6 dollars each! A very exciting find when I wasn't sure I'd be able to find a berry color in a soft and sheer enough finish for my liking.

Fall Textures

Tweed, denim, leather and florals. The best thing about fall fashion is all of the textures! Thicker fabrics and knits and sleek seasonal leathery looks make mixing and matching so much fun. Even so, it's all too easy to fall into wearing dark colors daily in the autumn and winter seasons, but your looks can easily be livened up with fall floral prints and pops of color in thicker fabrics. Pink is a always fall color in my book!
