Snow & Sun

H&M Dress & Sweater, Zara Boots
One of my favorite dresses that I lost wore here with a sweater thrown on top and tucked into the belt of the dress. I was inspired by this picture of Dree Hemingway in the casual sweater over the floral dress. I obviously had to “winterize” my outfit a bit more, but considering the snow in the background, I was fairly warm in the non-jacket pictures. Must have been the sun!

    From the 1st photo, I thought it was a skirt. This very cute, && just seems comfy. I kinda wanna buy a floral dress, && a sweatshirt now.
    Your puppy is so adorable!

    I have an off-topic makeup question for you. I bought the Mac Show Orchid lipstick (after seeing how great it looks in your pics) and am wondering what color lip liner I should get to go with??? Any tips?

  • Marie a la Mode

    Such a cute oufit. I love your skirt! I think I have the same coat as you! I got mine at Winners in Canada which is similar to TJ Maxx in the states. Where did you get yours? I'm curious now!

  • BrooklynBlonde

    @Chrissy, I actually don't wear lip liner with that lipstick! I just outline it with the lipstick and then line the rest in.

    Marie, I got mine at TJ Maxx too! I'm sure it's the same one then! 🙂
