Mood Board: December


We're done with the obstacles known as Halloween and Thanksgiving, and are now in December, aka Christmas month!!! I'm not religious, and it's not that I love Christmas because of the presents or anything. It's more about that warm and fuzzy feeling I get when I start seeing string lights adorning all the houses in the neighborhood, and when shops change their display windows out to feature pine trees, gift boxes, and everything else we've come to associate with the holiday.

For December, I'm feelin glitter. And light pink. Slick hair and natural beauty. There's no need to pile on layers of makeup when you're also bundling yourself up with all that outerwear...not that I'm really doing much layering, seeing as I'm in LA where the coldest it gets is the low 50's, but I still stand by my statement.

Now all I need is a boo to have holiday movie marathons and cuddle with while we guzzle hot chocolate. 


November Mood Board

In my eyes, November is the last hurdle I have to get over before the holidays. I'm not a huge Halloween person. Thanksgiving is alright. October and November are just...meh. That being said, here's a mood board to inspire your November - the month we all set aside to shovel ungodly quantities of turkey and pumpkin spice everything into our mouths.

I'm thinking cool outerwear. I love a good camel coat, but why not opt for a green velvet embroidered bomber instead? And while we're on the topic of velvet, I've also been contemplating velvet footwear. Perhaps a chunky heeled bootie. But neutral New Balances are a necessity, too.

And what about that hand cream? Nothing worse than crusty hands...keep them moisturized, people!

Knitwear. Obviously. Preferably, of the extreme turtleneck variety.

And makeup-wise, let's venture out a bit. I love a good cateye. I really do. But what if we switch out those black super sharp wings for a copper-y lid every once in a while? A swipe along the top lash line, and a horizontal line across the middle of the eyelid. So freakin cool.
