Earthy Grunge

 Happy Wednesday! It may be November, but here in upstate New York we’re having a heat wave! It’s been in the seventies for the past couple days, and while I’m loving it, I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop, because I’m sure we’ll be back to 40 degrees out before you know it! I’m enjoying not having to wear heavy coats for now.

Today I’m wearing a comfy tank courtesy of StyleArt, a company that sells items with prints by independent designers on them! They give 20% of the proceeds to the designers as well as offering them the opportunity to promote themselves. I chose this fun toucan-print tank in black. The material is great, and the print doesn’t get gross or flake off after one wash like a lot of graphic tops do in my experience. It does run really big, however. I got a small and it’s definitely quite oversized on me as you can see. Overall I’m very happy with it!

I styled the tank with a pair of black leggings, black booties, and my trusty denim jacket. Since the shirt is so low cut on me, I added my favorite lace bralette to just peek out around the neckline a little bit.

I added dreamcatcher earrings and some leather bracelets to finish off the look, as well as a dark red manicure and a brighter red lip.

This kind of multi-faceted casual look is my favorite to wear. The bralette and leggings make it so comfy, the denim, black, and red nails add edgy vibes, while the leather bracelets bring it back down to earth. Combining multiple styles is one of my favorite things to do!

Double Denim

October really is here! Fall’s just about in full swing, there are leaves on the ground and the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back! Midterms are approaching here, and I find myself leaning more and more toward items that are easy to throw on in the morning with little to no planning. This may be in fact the first time I’ve ever featured pants on Color Me Kiki! (Once leggings made an appearance, and once shorts, but those don’t really count.) I tend to wear only skirts and dresses, but now that the temperature is dropping, I have to pull my dreaded pants out every once in a while. These black jeans are the only pair I actually like wearing.

 I slipped on this semi-cropped black, beige, and red patterned sweater, then added a black scarf and my tan oxfords. I think oxfords are the perfect fall shoe: they keep your feet warm, but are still light so that you don’t have to trudge around in heavy boots just yet. This mustard beanie kept my ears warm.

I added a denim jacket, because that’s one of the classic fashion rules that I think should always be broken; there’s nothing wrong with denim on denim, especially when it’s two different shades like the black and blue ones I’m wearing here. I love wearing a chambray shirt with black denim too!

April Showers

Spring has sprung, but it’s still a bit too wet and muddy out for my liking. Here in Oneonta it drizzled all day but finally cleared up in the afternoon, just in time for me to shoot this outfit! I wanted an excuse to show off my favorite red rain boots! 🙂 We found this adorable little stone bridge just off a walking trail through the woods-doesn’t it just look like something out of a fairytale?

When you live in the Northeast, a good pair of waterproof boots is a necessity. Some opt for more fashion-forward versions, but I’ve always love the classic red rubber rain boot! I wore them today with my comfy black and white polka-dot dress and my vintage denim jacket. Polka-dots, red, and denim all add classic elements to the look. I grabbed my red lipstick that perfectly matched the boots too!bridge7

I put my hair up in one of my favorite ways-as two crown braids! It’s such an easy hairstyle, and can be dressed up or down so easily! This is one of my go-to hairstyles in the mornings when I’m running late, because it only takes a couple minutes and looks like I made much more of an effort than if I simply rock the ponytail or bun to that 8 am class!

Since I was rocking the bold lip, I only swiped on a little mascara. I don’t usually wear a full face of makeup on a day-to day basis, just some lip color, mascara, and a little blush usually 🙂bridge4 bridge2

Mint To Be

Yesterday was such a lovely day out! It’s finally beginning to consistently be warm out here in New York, which has gotten me wearing my favorite dresses again! This dress was a Christmas gift from my cousin this year, and I love it! It’s made of a lovely flowy chiffon, with such cute cutouts on the sides and back. It’s a pretty mint color with silver polka dots all over, and I just can’t get over how different and fun it is! horses3

I slipped on my berry-colored Mary Jane heels and grabbed my matching berry lipstick! I kept my jewelry simple with just a couple silver rings, and I grabbed a vintage jean jacket to make my outfit a little more casual. This dress is so versatile-I can dress it up with heels or down with sandals! I love the airy feel that the cutouts provide.horses4
