What I’m Listening to: Be My Baby by The Ronettes (Fun Fact: The Ronettes is the band my mom, Ronette, was named after)

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! It’s been a wild holiday season, but I’ve got a couple posts headed y’all’s way over the next few weeks, so be sure to stay tuned for those. First though, I want to focus on this dress, because it’s one of my favorite pieces in my entire wardrobe. It’s simple but over the top at the same time, AKA: my favorite combination. I kept the rest of my outfit (hair included) fairly streamlined in order to really let the dress stand out and be festive without getting overwhelmed by accessories. But enough technical speak, go forth and see for yourself.

Peace,

KJ

Lipstick + Plaid

What I’m listening to: Limetown, Episode 3: Napoleon 

Well, it’s for reals the “Holiday Season” now. Which means pie, gingerbread, and those weird ribbon candies no one who doesn’t remember when California wasn’t a state likes (September 9, 1850 btw). So what’s a better coat for the season than the ever-flattering swing coat? Especially this one in such a cheery plaid! (Did that sound appropriately fashion blogger-y? I feel like yes.) The other thing I’m loving is this nude Yves Saint Laurent lipstick (this one is #22). It works great, especially in the cold, because it hydrates and protects your lips. Kind of like a grown up version of my favorite lip balm of all time Baby Lips. Alas, I must now wrap this post up, somewhere in the world someone is unwittingly purchasing ribbon candy and I must warn them before it’s too late.
