Today’s outfit of the day is a bit of a contradiction! I paired my favorite button-up dark wash chambray shirt with a faux leather skater skirt I found on Forever 21 ages ago. Usually leather doesn’t make you think girly, but this skirt does exactly that. I love to wear the skirt because it mixes such an edgy fabric with such a feminine shape, and the laser-cut flowers on the hem add the perfect cutesy detail. I added black tights to stay warm, and grabbed my black oxford heels, since it’s finally warm enough to wear heels without slipping on the ice.
This necklace is one of my favorites. It was a Christmas gift from my grandmother this past year, and I am in love with it! The turquoise shade and geometric shape makes it a standout touch in any outfit. Continuing with the geometric vibe, I added stud-shaped earrings too.
Since I had on different shades of blue, I grabbed my deep red lipstick for a classic contrast. I kept the rest of my makeup simple since I had such a bold lip color, just putting on a little powder and mascara to brighten my face! I’m a huge fan of the Milani lipsticks they were selling at Kmart 2 for $6 a while back; for such a cheap lipstick, they’re such vibrant colors and they go on so well! They do tend to dry your lips out though unfortunately. I painted my nails a color aptly named “Sangria”, to coordinate somewhat with the lipstick.
I just love that flower detail on the faux leather! So much fun, and such a great combination.
