Kick off the fall season with brown & burgundy tones
It's been one heck of a fun and blessed week. On Tuesday I got an e-mail from a producer asking if I can stop by on Wednesday morning to share some of my beauty and style tips. I usually book segments like those 2-3 weeks in advance. I told her I'll get back to her, and two hours later I confirmed. The rest of the day consisted of getting items to display for the show and buying a last-minute outfit. I went to my go-to spot for fast fashion to look for a dress. (The goal is to always find something inexpensive and that somewhat hides my gut.) The dresses I tried on were a fail, so I went with a top and skirt combo. I love sleeveless mock neck tops. I have a few at home, but not in this color. Burgundy and brown tones are popular during this time of year and it was quite fitting for my summer-to-fall lifestyle segment.
Both the skirt and top are from H&M. The skirt is a size 10. I tried on my usual 4/6, but like the jeans, I guess I'm also a size 10 in skirts at H&M.
The booties are from T.J. Maxx.
Here I am with hosts Janice Benscome and Audris Rijo from Telemundo's Acceso Total NY. I shared tips on body and face creams to try this season, matte lipstick, and fall fashion essentials. They really loved the hats from JCPenney. I gave Audris a Curel bottle and the next day on Instagram she told me she liked the moisturizer. I'll get into all the products in the following blog post.
