Spring Pink

Blush pink is always a favorite of mine.  It's probably the one color that takes up the most real estate in my closet.  I scoured online found some of my favorite pink pieces in staple silhouettes or pieces that I think are great transition, versatile pieces.

 Hope you enjoyed this edit! xoxo, Karen

Shades of Color

I always love the changing of seasons.  I'm sure its still too early for a permanent change, but the sixty degree weather we had this week definitely has me dreaming of spring and summer.   Of course a refresher in our wardrobe is a given, but what I really look forward to is wearing bright lipstick hues.  I've tried a lot of different brands, but I always go back to Mac.  Its just one of those unassuming accessories that you don't realize the impact it has on your overall look but it really does make a statement.  Many people I talk to say they get nervous about veering away from the nudes.  But I'm telling you, once you try it, you will open your eyes to a whole new world.

Here I'm sharing my 4 staple colors that I love wearing during the warmer weather.  I have to say I just saw pics of these lipsticks on different girls of different skin colors on the internet and they look drastically different on me (I'm a medium tan color.)  Which just goes to show, you should just try it.  You might just like it :)

Here are some bright lipstick inspiration pics of some of my favorite youtubers and celebrities. Clockwise starting with top left, Teni Panosian, Eman Makeup, Jennifer Lopez, me wearing Mac's Relentlessly Red, and Desi Perkins.
Have fun color exploring!!  xoxo, Karen

Fur + leather

I'm sure you don't need any convincing as to why you should pair leather and fur together.  But incase you wanted some fun inspiration, I've compiled a few of a my fav looks that inspired one of my recent OOTD's.  A moto jacket is a closet staple that you can carry forth through every single season. And a fur scarf is a must for a luxe winter look.  

We finally got some sun and warmer weather so I took full advantage of this ideal layering weather.

And here are my inspiration pics for a leather and fur combo.  xoxo, Karen

Winter Layers

I've been playing around with more layers lately.   Yes, it's practical to wear layers  - especially here in the Minnesota cold - but it also adds interesting dimension to your looks.  I got a few outerwear pieces this season (most from thrift shops) and I made to sure get a size larger for the purpose of layering.  Try it - you won't regret it.  :)  xoxo, Karen
