I went with my husband and his family up to Pinetop for our annual “Christmas tree cutting” and get-together. It’s always so relaxing going up north. I love the beach, don’t get me wrong, but being near the mountains with the wind rusting through the pines is a close second for me. It makes me wish that I would spend more times outdoors, exploring and admiring the beauty that is nature. This might sound super crazy, but the first thing I’m going to do once I’m done with finals is go hiking and scream as loud as I can once I reach the top. That’s basically where I’m at in my level of stress right now, daydreaming of yelling off of high peaks… it’s certainly not the most ideal head space to be in but I digress.

I wasn’t planning on doing an outfit post in Pinetop hence the this super casual, laid back look sans my usual jewelry. This is actually what I look like most days for class, except with less make-up. Hahaha I’m just being real. These are honestly my favorite jeans because they feel like pajama leggings.

Or probably what these “Pajama Jeans” above feel like. I’ve seen them at Walmart and for a split second… I considered buying them. But then I came to my senses and remembered I have J Brands that look way better.



Dark December

I have recently been more intrigued with the look of a dark lip. There are so many different options for different skin tones, so you may just have to play around with them but my favorites would have to be this, this & this. A dark lip can transform an outfit like no other. I have heard people say, “I can’t pull off a dark lip because I’m to pale!” Well folks, yes you can, because I am the palest of them all! In my opinion, anyone can pull off a dark lip! But it’s important to remember that in order to rock the look, stay neutral with your shadow, go bold withy our brows and don’t forget your bronzer!
