The weather here in Canada is starting to get a tinyyyy bit on the chilly side, and oh my goodness...it's the time of year where it's sometimes shorts and tshirt weather in the afternoon, then 3 hours later thunder clouds start rolling in and you suddenly wish you had like two jackets to keep yourself from getting sick. Gnomesayin'?
Haha anyways, to deviate things a little, Ashley from newdress.com was gracious enough to send me this jacket to keep me warm, and I recieved it in the mail just a few days ago! The jacket is made of a thin woolen material, and the lining is of a plastic-like finish. When I recieved the item, it was a bit on the wrinkly side so steaming or flat ironing was a must before wear. What I love most about this jacket is that it has two ways of wear! You can wear it unbuttoned, and you can also button it up on one side so that it looks like you're wearing a scarf! This jacket can most defs be used to dress up or down an outfit with it's interesting cut. I then paired it with a simple black shirt and a skirt from Aritzia (retails $65) then finished it off with a vintage looking messenger bag. The overall look is composed of cool colors, and is contrasted with the warmer toned bag. The jacket is up for grabs at a super affordable price, so go get'em fashionistas!
Now, if your outfit consists of cooler shades for fall, my tip would be to warm things up with a brown shadow and contour. Afterall, you wouldn't want to look super washed out! Complete the look off with a muted or natural looking lipstick and you're done! You can also contribute to the whole "fall" look by wearing a darker wine colored lipstick. If you think a dark lipstick is too much, try integrating it into your look by using the "gradient" lip effect! I have a fall makeup look coming up soon , so keep an eye out for the next post!
