Winter vacation fashion & beauty style guide


Classic Wool Peacoat in Grape (, Beyrouth)

It's officially Winter in Atlanta!   If you are traveling to Chateau Elan for a stay at the Spa over the weekend or going North to the mountains, some of the items you will need to take include a Classic Coat in a pop of color, water-resistant boots in case there is snow, ice, or slush, great layering tees and knits, and a few pieces of statement jewelry for dinner in the evening.  Peachy and Rosy Cheeks with bold lips and bare eyes are a hot look for Winter.  Keep those lips moistened and nails fresh and modern.  They key is to be chic while making it look effortless.

The Classic Peacoat

One of the best investments to your wardrobe will be a Classic Peacoat in a pop of color.  Various retailers in the city have fantastic sales including  Burlington Coat Factory at North Dekalb Mall, near Emory, and Bloomingdales, Lenox Square.  Select a color like Grape or Teal that you can always wear with black, but you may want to be able to put it back to Chocolate or Grey, the color of the season.  Give yourself multiple, timeless looks.

Silver Metallic Hunter Boots (

Original Welly Boots

From fun, sports, and work, men, women, and kids, Hunter, the orginal makers of the Welly boots in the 1850's is the perfect boot to go on any Winter Vacation.  Keep your feet dry and warm, pair them with the Welly Socks for additional warmth, and be stylish, especially in a Metallic.  Highlighted in Allure, InStyle, and the Today Show to name a few, Hunter's water-resistant boots have become a functional necessity.   The array of colors make them transitional and convenient for Spring. 

Layering Pieces

 Layering is great, but you don't want to have the dumpy look.  Take a few different colors of long, fitted tees.  Forever 21, Three Dots at Bloomies, or Mossimo at Target would have these staples. Cropped, Boxy, & Collarless jackets are remarkable for giving you a constructed and polished look because they are roomy, allowing you to add layering tees and knits.  

Beauty Products & Accessories

OPI Russian Collection (

 OPI is popular and  some of the swankiest colors are: Russian Navy, now available in matte, Lincoln Park after dark, and Apline White, also in matte. This will set your entire look off.  The nail salon inside of Colony Square in Midtown Atlanta normally carries most of the OPI collections, just may not have all of the colors.  If you know of any salon that do, send suggestions. Check out OPI Axxium collection which are colors in gel that will last for three weeks.  You won't have to worry about chipped polish on the slopes!

Start with a good foundation, Bare Minerals is a Top Pick for several Beauty Editor's list.  Definicils by Lancome is one of the best mascaras on the market. Experience a Juicy Tube in a clear, sheer color for day, and maybe a bit bolder for evening.  If you looking to update your lip color on a budget, try changing the appearance from sheer to bold by adding a lip liner in a richer tone.  Peter Thomas Roth's new concealer is the new avenue to looking flawless.
