After last year’s flirtation with short hair and blunt bobs, I am slowly growing my hair out. For me, personally, short hair meant less maintenance, but this season I’m all about the maintenance. I am still using my favorite shampoo + conditioner and hair mask, but have since added this blow out balm to my hair care regime and the name says it all.
Other hair and beauty related things I am loving this fall/winter?
still very much into statement barrettes and black headbands
matte lipstick and minimal (if any) eye makeup
my go-to matte lipstick (no. 62).
full, groomed brows, always
some days, this product is the only thing I put on my face.
easy chignons and low ponytails
a la CBK and Ashley O.
and a very strict skincare regime
my holy grail.
I’m very particular when it comes to shopping for black ankle boots. The shape; how do they make my feet and legs look? The details; I strongly dislike zippers or metal accents. The functionality; can I walk 20 city blocks in them? These things all play into my decision making.
This season I have tried on dozens of new styles but have yet to find the boots for fall 2018. The common theme is a slightly square or pointed toe and a moderately sized heel. When it comes to brands, I think The Row, Balenciaga, and now Loewe (once Celine, RIP) do footwear best, and Zara or Mango for affordable styles that are ideal for inclement weather.
