Plaids and Jewels

We are well into October, and it is still too hot to think about wearing sweaters.  I don’t remember last year being this warm.  I am anxious to start actually wearing my sweaters and long sleeves, and not immediately taking them off after pictures.  


Since it is October, it is time to start thinking about what to wear to fall functions.  I always start thinking about what I will wear for Thanksgiving or for the girls fall festival.  Lane says these are just excuses to buy more clothes.  He is right; I can’t help myself.


I actually wore this plaid flannel top last year on Thanksgiving.  It is a light weight flannel and can be dressed up or down.  Thanksgiving for us is usually a casual meal with family.  This top was perfect.  I will be wearing it a lot this season.  I love the bold red color.  I found the necklace and earrings at J. Crew Factory.  They were on sale, always a bonus.  I thought adding the jewels dressed it up and gave it a very classy look.  


My jeans are again my Nordstrom fave.  I love the raw step hem and the destroyed look.  Adding a belt breaks the outfit up and makes it a little more “dressy”.   


So many shoe choices would be great with this top-boots, flats, or booties.  I went with the olive green ankle bootie to make the olive green stripe in the top really pop!  These booties are fabulous.  They are so comfortable and come in several colors.  


I had to put a fun red lip with this.  I am addicted to Dior Rouge Liquid Lip Stain.  This color is 999.  It is a long wear matte color.  Amazing!!  Tip: apply very little.  A little goes a long way.  If you put on too much it will feel kind of rough and clumpy.  I found this out after my first couple of wears and remedied the problem.  I have two fabulous make up people, at the Dior counter in Dillards at West Towne Mall in Knoxville, Julia and Jeremy.  They are my go to for Dior products.  I have this lip stain in several colors and love it.  It is truly long wear and the colors are matte and so vibrant.  


As for my hair, I have recently shared the products I love to use.  I just bought the T3 Whirl Trio styling wand.  I am blown away.  It was so easy to use.  I didn’t even burn myself, which is huge when using a wand.  I am going to be doing a post soon talking about the different styling wands I like!


Have a wonderful week.  New post on Friday!
