Boots and lips
‘Tis the season of the thigh-high boot and I’m so glad because it gives me a chance to dust off these sorely neglected thigh-grazers that I’ve had for a few years but rarely wear because (as much as I hate to say it), they’re not super practical in my current role as stay-at-home mom/freelance writer…That is, until this season when thigh-highs have exploded onto the scene as an everyday go-to. Here I just kept my look simple with blue jeans, a velvet blazer, and a fringed scarf–that was actually my mom’s as a teenager–but I am already picturing the gazillion ways to wear these come the chillier days of fall. Tweed shorts, sweater dresses, leggings…the list goes on!

I’m also wearing a new lip colour by Illamasqua, a British brand that is launching at only select stores in North America. I was lucky enough to snag an invite to the launch at the Hudson’s Bay store on Queen here in Toronto, where I was given one of their signature matte lipsticks to try for myself. Not only do I like the texture (I’m not one for a glossy pout these days), but I love how the matte finish also intensifies the rich colour. Needless to say, I’m in serious like with my new lipstick. Colour is Eurydice.
