MY DECEMBER AESTHETIC • 2019

soft like snow & slightly nostalgic

It’s no secret how much I love Pinterest! I use it constantly to stay inspired. I am extremely turned to and influenced by my aesthetics and surroundings so I like to create seasonal moodboards to set the “tone” for the month ahead. I see my Pinterest as a one stop shop for all things aesthetic. I use it constantly for photos, editing, instagram, outfit ideas, photo locations… even posing ideas!

Basically, each month, I pin for the current month & the month ahead.

I kicked off Fall with my October & November boards so it’s time to welcome Winter with my December board! Since I do these each month, made a new section called “aesthetic” under SLS. Check this out to see my inspiration month after month!

Each month on Pinterest is under it’s own season so check out my _winter board & in it, you’ll find the months of December, January, & February!

so welcome to my December Aesthetic – this is the kind of vibe you can expect from me over the next month 🙂

For December, I am feeling cool, pastel toned sunsets, dark clouds & rainy / snowy weather, ivory whites, & glowy finishes. I like the nostalgia of the holidays with the shorter, darker days. ’tis the season to eat, drink, & be merry!

When it comes to fashion, we’re getting softer & more glamourous. Think faux fur {I’m loving white fluff & leopard}, silky gabrics & gold statement jewelry

I’m loving wine red, emerald green, ocean blue, hot pink & light rose – those are the shades you’ll see me in this season!

Looks I’m loving are mid calf boots (especially with cropped boot cut denim), ribbed turtlenecks, monochrome black or white looks, burgundy sweaters, & hot pink satin!!

We are getting in the holiday season so bring on the satin & lace!! I’ll post my holiday aesthetic next week 🙂

As far as December beauty, I’m loving glossy, pearl finishes. Think glossy lashes, champagne highlight, with a bold lip: either glossy or a jewel tone.

I’m also loving milky shades & light pinks in general. I stocked up on the ByTerry Baume de Rose as well as the scrub. The slight pink tint will look beautiful under a clear lipgloss {Glossier’s is my fav}. I talk about Baume de Rose all the time, but it truly is the best balm on the planet – especially during this time of the year. I swear, this stuff will plump & replenish your lips over time & so nourishing in the winter months. I also love a red lip: my three favourites are Shiseido Visionairy Gel in Scarlett Rush, Glossier Play Vinyl Lip in Baby, & Dior Rouge 999

As far as eyes, I’m loving a champagne finish. For winter, I’ll be wearing Glossier Play Nite Shine highlighter in Pale Pearl & Glossier Lidstar in Moon. My fav holiday mascara is Lash Slick by Glossier – I love how glossy & defining it is without adding thickness. I generally like browns but for winter, I’m all about black! & of COURSE: boy brow <3

For face, keep the highlight going in Pale Pearl!

We are also planning a winter trip to the Sonoma Coast which I’m really looking forward to. I love the moody, coastal vibe there & it’s my fav California wine region!!

Happy December!! Only 1 month until the new Roaring 20s <3

What’s your December vibe? x
