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.

      Hi Emma! It’s brand new at The Bay! Go grab it. I love it because I feel like it gives even my most casual looks some oomph.
