BREATHE

I don’t know about you but I am full swing into Christmas shopping and trying to get everything I need for everyone on my list. That’s not all that’s on my plate, I am also decorating the nursery and trying to decorate our home because we will be hosting our annual Christmas Dinner.

Every time I visit the mall and stop by the makeup counter, there is a new type of foundation with a complex method of application making it daunting and scary.

LAYERS

Shawl – Le Chateau | Top | Culottes | Booties – Le Chateau | Hat | Glasses – Woodzee | Clutch – Le Chateau | Watch – Fossil | Makeup – Vichy Teint Ideal I am not a fan of cold weather, but I’m a sucker for knitwear and layering. This is especially true when I find a shawl as cozy as this one. I originally planned on getting this gorgeous waterfall coat at Le Chateau but the moment I saw this shawl, it was love at first sight and I had to take it home with me. The colors on this…
