Chevrons and Red Lips

Top: c/o Lulus.com, Jeans: DownEast Basics, Shoes: Dillards, Bracelets: Kohls

When I saw this chevron patterned top on Lulus.com I just knew it had to be mine.  I need more patterns in my wardrobe and who doesn't love a little zig zag?  I wanted a "dressy casual" look today, but you could easily create a casual or dressy outfit using this shirt.  Next I want to try it tucked in with a skirt or maybe even some colored pants.

You see those bangles I am wearing?  I scored those for $3 at Kohls the other day!  I love finding great clearance items and then using a 30% off coupon...I also found some sandals, which ended up costing me $6!

Oh, and just so you know...I totally did my hair, but you would never know it from these pictures.  Wind blowing like crazy + hot weather making me sweaty = bad hair.  And how do you feel about the red lipstick?  I never used to wear red on my lips (cause I am super pale), but I think it's starting to grow on me!  The color I'm wearing is Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in Rossetto.  Yes?  No?  Maybe so?

  2. Love the chevron top! I also think the red lipstick looks good. I always feel ridiculous in red lipstick, since I am so pale, but I think it looks really good on your. I might have to try that shade!

    The red lipstick is very striking on you. With your dark hair it is a perfect compliment.
