Ladylike Details: Crop Top & Midi Skirt

My husband and I were busy with spring cleaning and house renovations and barely had time to do anything else. Finally we got it done and I do not plan to do any cleaning for another six months (not really). You might remember this crop top from a previous post (Lilac). This time I styled it with a midi-skirt and nude pumps for a more classic and ladylike look. Also, rocking mix & match earrings, a cool new trend I adore. It is hard to see in the photo-but I wore a pearl earring on the right, and a diamond stud earring on the left. My favorite color is purple (any shade of purple) so I thought it would be nice to wear lipstick in a shade that accentuates my top. Playing around with my lipsticks, I came up with my own concoction of radiant orchid that I’m so in love right at the moment. In order to get this shade, I mixed Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Shame (80%) and Stila liquid lipstick in Petal (20%). My secret of saving cost on lipstick is to mix your own shades. Currently, I only own four (dark red, red, pink, orange and nude colors) but I am always wearing just the right color to accent any outfit ^_^


Top Secret: Camo Jacket & Bootie

No, I did not forget to rotate the first shot-It was taken upside down (my husband lay upside down on the ground while taking this photo). It rained early, and was a bit cool on the day I wore this outfit. Sometimes I like to wear a skirt when it rains, as I don’t want my pant (hem) soak up the water from the rain and from the ground. This outfit was perfect for that kind of day. Taking off this jacket, it would reveal a rather simple outfit-peplum top & tube skirt. To add a little extra to the outfit, I completed the whole look with this camouflage jacket and bootie, and accessorized with bracelets and an envelop clutch.




Short & Sweet: Patterned Shorts & Black Pumps

I recently picked up these great shorts at Forever XXII and was surprised at how marvelously they go with my peplum top! I really like how interesting geometric patterns on these shorts pop, while the classic bag and pumps streamline the look. Enjoy your weekend!
