Happy Monday Ladies!  After the city’s first snowfall of the year, and a weekend spent mostly indoors, I’m relieved to be starting a fresh new week with warmer temps.

Don’t I look naked without eye make-up??  I usually go completely natural when I’m just strolling with the fam but I’m sticking to my beauty resolutions and rocking bright lipstick every chance I get.

I picked up this faux shearling coat at Ann Taylor earlier this week when I popped in to make a return.  I bought that amazing cobalt dress that Demi Moore was wearing in all the ads but would you believe it didn’t look the same on me?  The fur collar on this guy caught my eye as I was heading out and when I saw it was marked down from $278 to $78! I had to get it.  Short coats aren’t the most practical in cold weather but it sure is cute!

The Michael Kors bag was a gift bag from an ARTISTRY party I attended last week at Bar Basque. We mingled with the new Miss America and checked out the latest in skincare science.  How generous??

If you’re linking up with Monday Mingle, we’re giving away ARTISTRY’s Lip Shine to TWO participants.  UPDATE: The winners are Maegan and Babblings of a Mommy.

Have a glamorous week!

“Monday Mingle” is a weekly fashion/style link-up rotated between Momtrends, BonBon Rose Girls, and Glamamom.

    Jill I absolutely love the hot pink lip color…it looks FAB on you. I’m so jealous you guys had snow. I haven’t seen snow in almost 5 years now between Hawaii and now Texas I definitely don’t see it happening anytime soon, but I’m loving the MK bag and the coat..the colors are perfect for the winter season.

    Hi Jill! I’m a day late with my MM addition! I hope all is well and love your short faux shearling jacket! I know the feeling as it isn’t the most practical buy in the windy city, but they’re really cute and much more affordable vs the real mccoy! Hope all is well :)
