Winter Style

The low temperatures are really affecting this southern belle’s needs. When it gets super cold my mood changes from what I want to smell in my home to the moisturizer I use on my body. I even switch out the throws and pillows around the house. It’s really a cleansing process and I quite enjoy it. My color vibe changes and those dark heathery tones become my friend as well as my furry Mou boots and Bogner ski jacket. Winter creates a uniform for me that is much like a garden taking it’s nap…things need to recharge.


Mou boots my everyday staple. Available at Capitol, Charlotte,NC.



Bogner jacket keeps me toasty warm.


I am home alone a good bit in the winter because my boys ski and hunt on the weekends. I find it is a good time for me to work on my goals for the new year in all aspects of my life. Spring break will be here soon enough and I enjoy getting focused at home and in my studio.

Over the next two months I will be starting a new project at full speed and styling a major photo shoot. That is a lot of work and scents, color, wardrobe and cosmetics all play a role in making my day a good one! Time to get to the brass tacks of design. A  little fluff never hurt anyone…


Mixing you,
