A Kinda Christmas Fashion Tale

November Finds: A Style Link Up



I'm going to change up my typical "What I Wore on Wednesdays" posts to stick with the prompt from The Blended Blog for November: Fall Favourite Finds. I don't tend to buy new stuff in November or December so I want to concentrate on working with what I have and finding new ways to freshen up my look.

For today's post I had fun with lipstick and kept it real with the photos.  If you read my Monday post, you would know that I'm barely staying on top of things, so I thought I would take my pictures when I got home from work, with the makeup that was still on my face after my workout.  5:00 - 7:00 is my tiredest time of the day.  But it gets a little better after I slap on some lipstick.  I have been toying with this new shade that can be really dark when applied with multiple layers, but I haven't been that brave yet.  Instead I wear it toned down a tad.

What about you, trying any fun lipstick colours this fall?

  7. You're saying you took these pictures AFTER working out? You goddess, you look like you're ready to go for the day! I love that lipstick color on you, it is so perfect for the colder months! I'm with you, I never buy anything this time of year so I'm trying to revamp what I already own by mixing things up with my makeup, accessories, etc. You look great! XO -Kim

  8. I like the lipstick - looks purplish. Last time I wore my purple lipstick Grady asked me why I looked like a vampire. What does he know?

  15. I like the 'found' part of that. I need to clean all the random lipsticks out of my purse.

  16. It's sad how we can be our own worst critics, no? I just look at those pictures and think...well, I won't say it on here :)

  17. Definitely a bit better. Fun lipstick helps.

  19. I tend to really love dark colors in the fall! I'll go as extreme as a rich wine color, but I have to have an outfit I feel confident in to pull it off:) Love that necklace!

  24. I've been totally failing on the lipstick front. You are looking fancy and I think you would look even more like a rockstar with it darker.

  25. Awesome fall color!! You look beautiful as ever!!

  26. I need a little more confidence to go complete dark on this one, but I will get there.
