Black merino cowl neck from Banana Republic. Black trousers from Ann Taylor with a seam down the front of the legs. Black pumps from B.P./Nordstrom. Jet and anthracite dangly earrings.
Hair had Pantene volumizing spray throughout and I took a bit of my C.O. Bigelow Clementine body lotion and applied it from the ears down. I then blew my hair on a low setting twisting pieces. Lotion – be it a heavy facial or a lightweight body is good for giving wavy hair a piecey beachy look. I then took Sebastian Mud to some pieces for more definition.
Makeup is i.d. Bare Escentuals foundation and concealer, Nars Orgasm blush. On the eyes, I put Clinique Snow in the inner corners, The Body Shop’s gray on the lids and along the lash line. Then I curled the lashes and applied several coats of MAC X mascara. On the lips was The Body Shop’s Lippy Balm in cranberry with some Lancome Juicy Tubes in Daiquiri over it.
The day has only a slight chill, so to add color to my outfit I wore a bright aquamarine pashmina slung over my shoulders. So pashminas are passe… I adore them, have several. I wear them as a shawl, an outfit accent, a winter scarf. I keep one at my office for those days where the a/c is on too strong. Whether they are considered “in” or “out,” pashminas are always a wardrobe staple for me. Like a black pencil skirt, brown croco pumps, a crisp white shirt… I think they are always classic.
