In case you don’t live in New England, just let me tell you it gets cold! Like, frigid. The temperature can go from 60 degrees one day, to 20 (or less) the next.
These sudden drops are the worst!
To combat the cold weather, I’m a big fan of bundling up. Layers on layers on layers on layers. Think thick cozy sweaters, long sleeved bodysuits, and boot socks. Mostly because I’m a big baby when it comes to being cold.
And so is my skin. Trying Clarins Hydra-Essentiel serum and moisturizer has helped keep my skin moisturized in spite of how quickly the temperature and weather changes. So much so, that it stays hydrated all day.
So many people are surprised when they find out my age, and comment on my skin and how young it is. That is not case in the winter time. Well, at least, not before discovering Clarins Hydra-Essentiel products. So now, my skin can be quenched and radiant year-round!
This is actually the outfit I wore to see the Nutcracker in NYC. Minus the necklace, which I won.
The story behind this maxi dress is that I really wanted it (as did almost every other Madewell employee, shopper, etc.). But, I had literally just bought another dress (also from Madewell) to wear to the ballet.
Look at it, though! Passing up on it was not an option.
So, I got it and wore it instead. I received a handful of compliments, but was too sick to enjoy and bask in it.
I don’t share all of my outfits on here (believe me, if I could, I would). This one was just too fancy not to.
It’s also too pretty to not wear again for something else. Switch out the shoes, and it’s basically a whole new look!
Femininity and feminine details aren’t really something that come rushing to the front of my mind when thinking about my personal style. However, I am still actively working on defining my style. One way to figure out if you like something is to try it. The same goes for defining you style.
When the latest Madewell et Sézane collection launched I’m going to be honest. I didn’t love it.
Not that I hated it, I just didn’t feel like it was for me. However, there was one piece that I kind of thought I maybe wanted. A sweater. But it was very feminine.
Fast forward to seeing that same swearer in store and trying it on (on two separate occasions). I knew I liked it, so I bought it. Even though I wasn’t sure how I was going to pull off styling it while being true to how I like to dress.
Jeans were an obvious choice. They allowed me to branch out a little, while remaining comfortable. So comfortable, in fact, that I even added heels to top it off.
