Winter Maxi


Zara jacket, F21 maxi dress and ring, Sam Edelman booties, Little Burgundy snood

Vancouver is famed for its mild tempurature (compared to our neighbors in the east), but the wind chill in the past few days caught everyone off guard and had us frantically looking for those winter accessories. It looks like I'll be sticking to indoor outfit posts for awhile.  This way, I get to show you some Christmas decorations I'm about to put up and share with you some favourite things in my home this holiday season.

I'm trying out the dark lip look this winter with Chanel's Rouge Coco in 28 Byzantin.  It takes getting used to a deep plum shade that's slightly "vampy", but I'm loving it so far as it goes well with the neutrals I've been sporting lately. I found these Sam Edelman "Nicholason" suede lace-up booties on sale at Little Burgendy a few weeks ago and bought them in a heartbeat. I love a high wedge that's comfortable and practical.  The slip-proof rubber soles are proving to be a huge bonus these days on the icy pavements.

I'm totally digging the burgundy lips, I've been trying it out too and I love it! I love your scarf! Looks so cozy :-)

thats very brave to wear that maxi in the cold. Butt I think I will try it actually... LOVE the scarf.

lisa said...

Love that lip colour on you. And Jebus, I'm amazed you can wear a maxi with bare legs underneath and not freeze! I'd be tempted to pull on some tights or leggings underneath.

Love the dress on you! I never try on maxi dresses because I'm too short :( That lip colour is perfect for this season!

You look chic and beautiful as usual Carolina, but I can't believe you wore that out in the Vancouver weather we've been having lately!! I feel like I'm going to freeze if I have anything less than two wool sweaters and a coat on haha! Anyway, that is a perfect lip colour for winter. And your accessories totally complement it to a tee!

Have a lovely day!

Gorgeous! I must say, I can't get past the wine colored lips - you look stunning with that shade of red. It really completes the look.

That lip colour is looking fab on you! I personally think a prominent lip colour is hard to pull off but it REALLY suits you.

Love the maxi for winter. I HEARD you guys are getting blasted out there. Is it true you had a snow storm about a month ago?!?!

I LOVE THIS! I think it's my FAVOURITE outfit so far since I've started reading your blog. I'd wear this. Seriously, I love everything from head to toe. I love the snood! I've been looking for a circle scarf or something like what you're wearing. Did you purchase it recently? Also, I love your Sam Edelman shoes! I've been eyeing those, but I have so many wedges. No more shoes for me.
