This year I’m getting into the Holiday Spirit with understated jewels and a signature red lip. With winter right outside my door (and I mean, burrrrr- it’s blustering out there) first off, I wanted to show off my new TopShop coat. This coat represents a great accomplishment for me. I have been on the hunt for the perfect oversized coat for 3 years now! No small feat if you take my height into consideration… 😉 Me and my perfect coat have been united!
What I appreciate about this coat, are the shorter sleeves, with a flexible sweater cuff that fits my petite arms perfectly. I also love the length. Mid thigh is a great spot for the hemline, because just above this will make me look wider than I am and longer would drown my frame.
See something missing from this monochrome ensemble? I needed a little something sparkly at my wrist to play off the simple rings and my favorite jewel stone necklace. So wha- la! An arm party with Alex & Ani !! What do we think of textured bangles with this look?
Each bangle has an easy stretch design that allows any size wrist to slide on easily. I love the layered look with all different textures included in this set. You can find similar silver gift sets on their site or you can customize your arm party a la carte. My top pick is the silver quill feather wrap. I’m so in love with the quality and design of these bracelets, that I’ve wrapped a couple of these babies to put under the tree this year!
Before you click off- wanted to share a holiday Beauty Hack… See my lovely makeup and lips here? I knew I wanted a burgandy or wine colored lip, but couldn’t hunt down my favorite color ANYWHERE! So instead, I used my Glo Minerals Cream Stay Shadow Stick in Rouge. Because of the creamy base it stayed on as a kind of matte stain. I LOVE it!
What do you ladies think? Yay or Nay?
