The chill is definitely starting to set in here in the Bay Area. Being a true California girl, I have an extremely low tolerance for cold weather, so this month I am really into things that look like they will keep me warm: fur, thick knits, jackets, boots, long sleeves, etc. Because of this inconvenient weather, winter is the hardest season to dress for. It's so tempting to succumb to the wrath of the cozy grey and blue and black winter staples, but I think that this is really the time to break out the brightest colors and prints. Especially against the dreary, dark backdrop of winter, it's refreshing and stunning to see these amazing prints and textures and bright colors.
This winter, I'm also really interested in winter skirts and dresses. Typically these girly frocks are stowed away until spring, but why not opt for a maxi or tights? These beauties have no business being in exile for so long, so why not take advantage of them and stand out from the crowd?
Makeup wise, I'm loving roses, browns, and shimmer for the eyes, a nude or red lip, and a dust of pretty pink blush. I think these warm tones are great for those holiday parties and family get-togethers while still giving that drop-dead-gorgeous glamorous look. I'm not usually a blush girl--bronzer is my saving grace--but in these frigidly low temperatures, even the darkest of skin tones start looking drab, pasty, and kind of dead. A bit of rosy pink and some good foundation can do the trick, bringing warmth and life to your face.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you were inspired by these photos. I promise I'll post a look soon, but I've just been so busy and I'm currently sick and in no shape to be photographed.
