Another summer-inpired fall outfit. I just can’t help it, I’ve been loving wearing leather, black, and jewel-tones lately! I tried to keep this a summer-feel with the open sandals and the sleeveless top. You can see I last wore this peplum top here and this skirt here and they are both styled completely differently. Gerard (my boyfriend/blog photographer) said “I’ve never seen you wear that before” and I said to him, “That is exactly the point! Going through your closet and finding different ways to wear the same pieces is what it’s all about!” He looked at me confused. I think boys don’t think about re-mixing or wearing their jeans and t-shirts in different combinations like us girls do. What are some of your favorite pieces you’ve re-mixed multiple ways? Let me know in the comments below.
Lately I’ve been hitting the snooze button a bit too much so I’ve been a tad rushed in the morning. The solution, I’ve found for this, is to trick people into thinking you spent a lot of time on your appearance, when in reality it took you 5 minutes. Lately my routine has been Dior’s BB Creme, Tarte Exposed Blush, Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer, Covergirl Lashblast mascara, and a colorful lipstick. Today I’m wearing Tom Ford’s “Black Orchid”. It looks terrifying in the tube, but you can honestly wear it as light, or as dark as you want. Case in point, my lips above are a nice medium berry color. The video that sold me on this lipstick and how versatile is it is Lisa Eldridge’s “One Lipstick, Many Ways” video. I HIGHLY recommend you watch it.
When I’m 1. Lazy or 2. Having a bad hair day, I usually throw my hair up into a ponytail. To make your ponytail look work-appropriate I try and dress it up with a pony lock (I show you in this this blog post) or I take some hair and wrap it around my ponytail to make it look more hairdresser-y. If it looks messy (see below), that’s okay. I like a little bit of edge with my hair, and having it look a bit playful and not-perfect can sometimes make it look even better than 100% sleek and every single hair in place. For me, that just isn’t realistic.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and a great week (it’s my BIRTHDAY week!!!) Thanks for stopping by <3
