One of the things I aspire to do more of here, in the New Year, is to do a better job using this blog to catalog the things that inspire me every month. Of course there is Pinterest for that, but I often pin things and then forget all about them. So I want to be better about curating these things, and actually taking action where applicable (like buying a green beanie and pairing it with a gray coat… the above look is just so good!) So here goes… my first “inspiration post…” these are the things that are inspiring me this month.
I really want to inject my wardrobe with a few preppier pieces this winter… kind of like combining home (Cape Cod) with my more urban lifestyle now. On my list right now… a great Barbour jacket (this one is my top choice right now), some fitted boy shirts, and some argyle socks. I love the idea of pairing the jacket with leather leggings or over a girly dress, and wearing the boy shirts with my A-line minis and statement necklaces… and the socks, well, come on… argyle socks just go with everything, right?
My red lip obsession won’t be going away anytime soon. I’m at a point where I feel weird if I don’t have it on. I know I go on and on about NARS Red Square but it’s really just the best. The above shot is from the Creatures of the Wind SS14 show. Thicker brows, a little mascara, flawless skin, and NARS Red Square – it’s all you need!
You know by now that I have an obsession with piercing my ears… I really, really want to add a new one this month – either my cartilage, or one of those little guys at the top of the ear. I just think it’s really beautiful and cool.
