Brett Eldredge :: "Lose My Mind" Video

I'm really proud of how this video turned out! It was a challenge to style because 1) Rachel Hilbert, the girl in the video, didn't even make it to town until really late the night before we shot, and so we were not able to fit her until the morning of the video. Luckily she was perfect and everything looked amazing on her. PS. If you've walked into a Victoria's Secret lately, she's the girl plastered all over the PINK section. 2) We really wanted an authentic-looking straitjacket and those are really hard to come by. Found it in LA! That thing was FOR REAL. Let me know what you think!

Plum Lips for Scaredy Cats. Also, How to Look Like Chrissy Teigen.

Chrissy Teigen at the Oscars 2014

I love a nude lip. I love a sheer gloss. I love a good lip balm. These are my go-to, everyday, gotta-pick-my-kid-up-at-preschool lipstick choices. Every now and then, I do like to spice it up for a girls' night or a date night, so I made it my mission to find a wearable plum lipstick that could also be worn during the day. I definitely have had those lipstick investments where I paid $25 for a great color, NARS lipstick in Schiap being one of them, and then could really only wear it two times a month. Wearing hot pink to buy groceries feels a little like wearing a sequin top to buy groceries. Certainly acceptable if you're feeling sassy, but maybe not my first choice.

Plum lips have been showing up all over red carpets, and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the whole beauty look that Chrissy Teigen did at the Oscars. If you know anything about her, she seems like someone who would probably just share her lipstick with you because you would for sure be best friends. But, to get your own plum lipstick look at home, which you can also wear to Kroger mid-day without getting sideways looks from the cashiers at 10 AM, Lipstick Queen Glossy Pencil in Mystery is your ticket.

It looks super dark, but it goes on really light, and is very buildable.

Roar...Spice Up Those Winter Sweaters.

I often get so bored with winter clothes. There's only so much you can do with sweaters and jeans. There aren't any fun prints like in Spring and the colors are usually SO DRAB. In the winter, it's pretty easy to stick to your basic sweaters, but you should invest in the things that people will see most of the time--outerwear and shoes! If you have your coat on all the time, no one is going to be able to see what's underneath anyway, so you should have a killer coat. Same with your boots.  

In this blog, we are focusing on one of my favorite footwear options for winter, the patterned bootie! For me, I chose leopard because I really do think you can treat it like a neutral, but snake is a good option too. I bought a Zara leopard bootie that is now sold out, but I chose an amazing Rag & Bone one for this blog, and there are a couple other more affordable options here and here. I love these snake print Vans and these snake booties from Free People as well. If the booties aren't enough for you to spice things up, add a colored beanie or what Rosie does below with the forest green bag. Forest green or burgundy would both be perfect choices to complement the bootie. Your booties. And your actual bootie.

Spring Pins! And Gingham!

Hey you guys. Happy New Year! Yeah, I know it's been the new year for, oh, almost two months, but it's just that having a baby that just turned one and trying to work full time has meant blogging hasn't been a priority. BUT--this brief hiatus has reminded me how much I love it, so my dear friends, 2015 is going to be the year of the Amber Lehman Styling blog. I don't care if I don't have the photoshop skillz to make this the most gorge blog ever, or if the template isn't the most up to date, the motto for 2015 is "TRY"...just do it. So, I'm over feeling bad about all that, and I'm moving on.

Between me, and Carrie, and Beth, we shop all the time, and we have the knowledge. And hopefully that's what you come to this blog for--tips and trends from people who ACTUALLY DO THIS FOR A LIVING. There. So, the first blog of the year is dedicated to spring pins I've found while I'm cooped up in the house because wrestling a one-year-old into a jacket like a wild hyena to go outside is just too much for me.

On this chilly Nashville day, I am dreaming about lighter layers and gingham. Yes, you heard me. Gingham. If you don't follow me on Pinterest, you should. Just my opinion. But I do think I'm a good pinner :). These and more can be found there!

A classic trench has been on my list for a while.

1) My buns never look that good. Not my hair buns anyway...hey-oooooooo. 2) I once got in a catfight in high school with a girl and I was wearing gingham shorts. Annnnd, now gingham is back, and I am not as young as I once was. 
3) This is how you wear gingham.

White overalls. YAYUS.
This is from the Citizens of Humanity Lookbook, all of which has been spot on.

Loving the sporty trend happening right now. This outfit has so much fun texture and gets a shot of "not so serious" with those sneaks.

Danielle Bradbery::2014 Awards show season

I thought I would post some pics of some recent work with the adorable Danielle Bradbery. Here are some looks from her performing at the WWO Gala in NYC  followed by the CMA Awards and the BMI Awards. Some notable pieces are her Mason by Michelle Mason white dress, the Mason Stanley lobster claw earrings she is wearing with that, and the Song Sisters mic cuff she is wearing on the CMA red carpet by Lionette. I about died over the piece.

LipGloss Junkie::Fall Faves + A Giveaway!

1 Chloe + Isabel Birthstone Studs:  These are so gorge! I love the variety of colors and the quality is amazing. At $22 a pair, there really is no excuse for not owning every color.
2 Beauty Counter Tint Skin Complexion Coverage:  This is THE BEST tinted moisturizer that I have ever used. In fact, I am in love with every single product they make. The skin care line is so amazing. And best of all? It's totally safe. This company is dedicated to providing the safest skin care possible. Check out their "Never" list here...I highly recommend you try these products! I can't say enough about them.
3 Younique Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liner:  I am sure you have all heard of Younique 3D Fiber lashes. (It is THE BEST mascara I have ever used!) But, they also have a fantastic line of other cosmetics as well. I am LOVING my new eyeliner! It goes on flawlessly, stays on ALL day, and is totally smudge proof. You will LOVE.
Zara Oversized Check Shirt:  Who doesn't love a good checked button up? I especially love this oversized one since I am rocking my 9 month baby bump at the moment. It's pretty much a closet staple that you can pair with that plaid scarf, and you will be set!
5 ASOS Scarf:  I've had my eye on this baby for a while. There is just something super chic about an oversized scarf paired with a basic tee, boots, and a jacket for fall.

OK, time for the deets on the giveaway. We are giving away a pair of the Chloe +Isabel studs (you choose the color!!) and a Younique Eyeliner.
