OOTD: Grey Midi

 

I’m starting to realize I wear a lot of grey clothing. I like grey it’s one of my favorite colors. My cousin bought me this grey midi skirt and I originally planned on wearing it with a graphic tee and a messy bun, but I was having a fashion meltdown one day and just started pairing random things together and came up with this outfit.

Hair: Color Ion Neon Brights Cyan, Color Ion Brilliance Brights Sky Blue. The color is much bluer in real life, the vaguely grey undertone is a trick of the light but I still really like how my hair looks in these photos.

Converse are definitely one of my all time favorite brands of shoes, I tend not to buy to many repeats of brands or styles, but I have three pairs of converse and I definitely have my eye on a couple more pairs in different colors.

Outfit Of the Day: Grey Triangle

Since the weather has warmed up I’ve been loving pairing easy baby doll style dresses with converse for day to day running around. I’m pretty sure I was just running random errands this day, but it was an absolutely lovely day and I was so comfortable in this outfit.

Earrings: Bar and Triangle: Baublebar, Infinity: Hot Topic

I’ve wanted tiny dainty earrings for a really long time and I saw these on sale on baublebar.com a couple of months ago and knew that these would be the perfect everyday earrings for me.

But I’ve had trouble with that top piercing the whole time I’ve had it, normal earrings weren’t ever comfortable and would stab me in the side of the head while I was on the phone and hoops didn’t sit right. For the longest time I had a curved bar in, but I wanted something that would go better with my dainty studs. I found a set of Labret studs in Hot Topic and decided to try them since the bar was shorter and the back is flat.

Nails: Zoya Robin

I bought this polish because Aria wore it on Pretty Little Liars and I thought it was gorgeous. I’m on my second or third bottle of this color because it’s so fun for summer.

These are probably the oldest shoes I have in my closet, and they are definitely still a favorite. They’re perfectly broken in and just the right amount of banged up and worn in.

 

Makeup Forever

Way back in February I went to Sephora to pick up a few things and while I was there Maxwell did my makeup with the Makeup Forever 50 shades collection. It was new at the time but I don’t think you can find it now, though if you looked up reviews I’m sure you’d be able to find similar colors in Makeup Forever’s permanent collection.

I just found this picture that was meant for that post today. I don’t remember everything he used but I do know it’s all Makeup Forever except my foundation which was Nars Tinted Moisturizer. However this picture is to amazing to not have been ever used. It’s owed all to Maxwell’s talents as a makeup artist.

OOTD: Springtime in Paris

It’s been a while since I’ve posted outfit photo’s, the weather hasn’t really allowed for it, and I really didn’t want to take them indoors like I had done most of winter. We grabbed these photos the other day before we went out to eat. Clearly I’m out of practice for posing.

I bought this sweater from H&M back in February, but I absolutely adore it and can definitely see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe this summer. It’s very lightweight and soft. And I love the Paris Darling and Eiffel Tower on the front.

I absolutely adore these Floral Hi Tops from H&M. They’re so comfortable and I love the rose print on the black background.

Now that we’ve had my awkward return post I plan to be back Sunday with a normal (and less awkward) post.

Daily Look Spring LBD

Recently I was invited by Daily look to make a Style Set for my perfect spring LBD look. Since it’s festival season I decided to go with a look I’d definitely wear to a festival, but I’m pretty sure I’d also wear in my day to day life.Beautysets - Spring LBD

I started out with this Broods Leaf Printed shift dress because I adored the print and I’m absolutely loving easy throw on and go dresses right now. Then since the dress is so short and the weather has been really cool where I live lately I added these thigh high socks, which I think are amazing paired with these low cut ankle booties from Kelsi Dagger. Then I finished off the outfit with this floral leatherette headband since I was going for a festival vibe (plus I think I would look amazing in my blue hair) and this House Of Harlow 1960 Kinetic Pendant Necklace because it’s gorgeous and I’m really into these sorts of necklaces right now. For practical purposes this Dailylook Zora Classic Quilted Vegan Leather Purse is perfect for all my day to day necessities.
I’m completely in love with this outfit, but I’d love to know how you’d style a dress like this in the comments below, or better yet go check out the little black dresses daily look has to offer and tell me your favorites
