Patch

Ah the pumpkin patch. Time honored tradition...trekking into the mud to buy pumpkins of all sizes, shapes, and colors for way more than you can get them at the market or grocery store. HA! We spent $65 on these suckers! Naturally I chose to make this a fashion opportunity. Wellies, plaid shirt, the whole bit. 
 Can I just say how smitten I am with the plaid shirt/striped shirt combo? How have I never thought of this before. Mix your patterns, girls! It's so much fun!
 Plus when isn't it a good idea to wear bold, red lips? Never! You can do bold lips all day every day in my opinion. This is Sizzling from my new line of liquid lipsticks. Smashing may have been a more proper option {Smashing Pumpkins, anyone?} But that shade has way more orange to it and my shirt is red, so Sizzling it was....
Warm or not, clearly it had been wet...because the Hunters saved my bacon when I practically got stuck! These babies have actually been my faves this fall, it's kind of surprsing how comfortable they can be to walk in!

I couldn't resist these adorable pics with 2 of my 3 littles. 
Hope you all had a fantastic October + Halloween.
Mix it up. Flowers + stripes? Different size stripes? Plaid + stripes? The main trick to pattern coordinating is a common color. Keep the patterns of different scale and you'll be golden!

I'm Bananas for Fall



Well hello strangers! Many of you have noticed I've been decidedly absent from the blog. 
So much so that I rarely get asked about it any longer. #shame 
I think there's a need for mature style setters and while I've been working hard on my makeup business, I think it's about time to start talking fashion again. Because I love it. Because you love it. So expect to [ideally] see a few posts per month, both beauty+style, all original content of course.
To keep up with me on the daily, I'd encourage you to follow me on Facebook, where my life+style plays out.

I was recently asked by Banana Republic to style up a surprise piece. Which I was initially thrilled with since I love 90% of their items. Then this arrived and I was like, "How am I going to wear this? It's a short(er) dress, it's a polo collar, it's got a bit of a higher + fitted waist...man, this will be a challenge." 

See none of those descriptions fit the way I dress currently. Which got me excited. To step OUT of my everyday and try up something new. And you know what, I ended up loving it. I can't wait to change this up once it gets a little colder and add tights or tall boots and a sweater. 
But on this day I just grabbed my trusty Toms perf booties, a fun Stella & Dot necklace (this is the newer version of mine, and honestly, it's better. It reverses!), & some sunnies. (looks like that dress in navy is sold out, but here it is in another color way)
 A feature I'll be trying to highlight as well moving forward is what I'm wearing on my face.  All products used will be available at www.musthavemascara.com unless otherwise stated This look was fun to play up the navy dress with the blues in Addiction Palette 4. A subtle smoky eye for day finished with Well To Do lipstick (my top selling shade, the nudiest of the nudes.)

40+ is still a time to experiment with fashion. Find your vibe. Change it up. It's all ok.
