Berry Toned Makeup Look and Leopard Print

I love berry tones. I feel like they're a nice choice for Autumn/Fall, as the leaves change and the days shorten. They feel cozy and bright, but also warm. Which is what this time of year is all about, getting into more cozy pursuits, but the days are still often beautiful and sunny. I came …

Out Of Print Outfit Inspo: Corduroy!
