A Week In Instagram : Petite Style Alerts, Fall Neutrals & New Blonde Hair

Hello ladies! We’re half-way done with September, I can almost taste fall! Need beauty and style inspirations? I have been posting on Instagram My Story (not the regular feed) bits and pieces of outfits and makeups that’s fall-ish appropriate so please follow me if you haven’t yet.

For my petite ladies (I’m a tiny 5’1 humanoid), you know how difficult it is to find a pair of jeans that won’t require hemming or folding. Well, you better rejoice because Mossimo got it right this time with these jeggings, they fit true to size and hit right at the ankle! I believe they are new releases for fall and had there been more colors, I would’ve hoarded. Look for mid-rise jeggings in camo (zipper pocket on the sides) and brown (zipper on the bottom) and pair them with fall’s must-have white sneakers or booties, boyfriend shirt or cowl sweater for a chic yet laid-back vibe. I don’t see them yet at Target online so you have to check ’em out in-store.

When it comes to fall makeup, it’s all about minimalism but it doesn’t mean you can’t rock berry anymore. The key is balance, you can be playful on the eyes whilst sticking with neutral on the lips or vise versa.

So after 6 months, at 2 months apart, at 3 hours per session, and hundreds and hundreds of foils, I have finally achieved the right blonde shade that suits my skin tone and facial features. My stylist did a conservative yet visually stunning transformation (Laura at Gialuchi Day Spa Salon) without damaging my hair (which also required meticulous after-care on my part).

      Let me know how they fit. Look for mid rise, they fit better and true to size compared to high rise

    You look great with the blond. It takes forever for my hair to go blond, several sessions and by the time I'm ready, I'm over the color choice. But you look fabulous.
