Don't you love the colour of this sweater?! I've been on the hunt for pastels to get ready for spring, and when I found this dream of a sweater... thrilled!! I actually bought most of this outfit at the same time (beret, sweater, skirt), on a shopping trip with my boss! I knew right away it would be the outfit for "I" :D
I don't know if you can tell from the photos, but it was SO COLD today! Leather jacket was a bad choice. But it looked so good ;)
I actually wasn't too cold, thanks to my Thinsulated (?) mitts and United Colors of Benetton wrap cardi! My raisin-coloured tights kept my legs not-frozen too ("warm" would be an overstatement).
I also tried out a new lipstick today! It's a purple-y lipstick that I've had for a while. My mother-in-love gave me a bunch of Lancome samples a while ago, and this lipstick was one of them! It's really smooth and nice, and I like the way it looks on my skintone. I was too chicken to try it before now! Then last night when I was laying out my outfit, I was trying to pick one of my red lipsticks to go with it, but none was right. Then I remembered this baby! HOORAY!
My black booties gave me some height, and also made the length of the skirt look "right"... I tried it with my flat boots, and it wasn't quite as lovely as I would have liked!
Speaking of lovely! Catie Beatty from Fleur d'Elise is having a giveaway! It includes a gorgeous pair of pink-and-yellow earrings that she made herself (!), a heart-shaped compact mirror (covered in Eiffel Towers...!), and a mascara! So awesome, Catie is the best :D I needed to put tons of exclamation marks to represent the squealing noises that I emitted when I saw the giveaway post!
I accessorized this look with my steel gray scarf and brown grommeted belt! I almost went with a black one, but it was too harsh for the pretty, romantic skirt ;)
Love how the "cables" of the cableknit are the same size as the flowers! Yaaaay :D
Time to go read for class tomorrow... bluhh. Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday!
