Spring Wishlist ft. Warby Parker

As someone who doesn’t wear glasses, I’ve seen Warby Parker around the blogosphere but never really bothered to check them out more. When they got in touch with me to help spread the word about their spring collection, I thought right away nope! I don’t wear glasses, so why would I suggest them to my readers?

But then I saw the collection! They almost make me wish I did wear glasses, because they are just so pretty! There’s so many styles, and they’re all so lovely and whimsical. So, here’s some things from around the web that are on my wishlist for spring, including some pretty frames! What are you lusting after for spring?


First up- this adorable swimsuit from Modcloth! I need a new suit pretty badly, mine is two years old. Plus, this one is super cute!!

I know everyone’s obsessed with the Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay collection, and I’m no different! I gotta get my hands on this blush palette, the colors look gorgeous.

If I did wear eyeglasses, it would be super hard for me to choose between these peach Finch glasses and the red Maraschino frames! So cute.

I’m also a huge fan of rompers, and with spring (hopefully) not far away, I need this pretty cutout Forever21 one to add to my collection I think! Those bell sleeves are perfection.

Last but not least, this makeup bag from Breakups to Makeup is just the cutest! And so true too haha, I usually take way too long to choose a lip color in the morning.

Hopeless Romantic

There is usually no such thing as a perfect photoshoot.

Either I have camera issues, or the light is weird, or it’s last minute and I don’t create the vision I intended. I originally planned on a completely different outfit for this post, something classy and vintage inspired. But the shots were coming out weird, and I just wasn’t feeling the look. So I scrapped that last minute and threw on something I felt comfortable in.

It turned out silly and weird and awesome, and I’m super happy with this set of photos. I think they really captured me haha, and I had so much fun taking them. I had to sort through a lot of bloopers to find these ones, but I’m super pleased with it! Hope you enjoy this OOTD 🙂


 A fun story about the tee I’m wearing here: I actually bought it in the children’s section of Old Navy while helping a friend look for a gift for her niece. It’s a child’s large, I think kids’ clothes today must run a lot bigger than they used to! Anyway, I just kinda liked the graphic on it, and it only cost $1.99 haha. I threw a bunch of layers on and called it a day.

Overall this look may be silly or childish or messy; it’s certainly not high fashion! I love its odd layers and untied Converse and messy ponytails though, I feel that it really captures who I am: a silly, hopeless romantic who’s far from perfect. And I think that’s what fashion is supposed to do: capture who we are.


Dress: Forever21, Tee: Old Navy (no longer available), Shoes: Converse, Vest: Thrifted, Sunnies: Forever21

(I’m also wearing NYX Soft Matter Lip Cream in Monte Carlo– stay tuned for a review soon!)

Like The Cool Kids

I loved playing dress-up as a kid, and I still do today! I love to put an outfit on that helps you become someone who would wear that outfit- in other words, I think how we dress can shape how we act. Today I dressed up as a different version of me 🙂

If someone was to ask me to pick on outfit to wear for the rest of my life, it would probably be a black romper. I think rompers are the most versatile pieces! You can wear them by themselves, layer them with tights and a cardigan like I did, and even dress them up with heels and a statement necklace! I love this particular romper, with its sweetheart neckline, cute pattern, and pockets (!!!). Combined with a beanie and boots, it makes me feel like I’m playing dress up as an edgier version of myself.


Romper, Cardigan, Boots, Beanie, Septum Ring

I’ve always loved adding fun details to my outfits, so when I found this septum ring (fake, don’t worry!) in a shop the other day, I thought it would add an edgy touch. The only danger is, I like it so much I kind of think I need one now! What do you think? I really like the cool-girl,  edgy, street-style vibe it brings, but I think my dad would probably kill me haha! Is it worth the tradeoff? You tell me!


Adding details like the nose ring and the beanie to this outfit definitely helped me channel my inner cool-girl (well, maybe she’s in there somewhere, buried deep down!) What do you put on to dress up as a different version of you? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Mustard x Navy

Before you ask- yes I am aware that it is December, and yes I know that I live in the state of New York haha. However, I do think that since it hasn’t snowed yet, crop tops are still appropriate attire! Maybe that’s my inner New Englander showing though haha. Us Vermonters wear shorts in 40 degree weather and trudge through feet of snow without blinking an eye! (Okay, we’ll probably complain about it a bit.) Can you tell I’m a bit homesick haha? I can’t wait for finals to be over so I can go home and see my family and friends.


Anyway, today’s OOTD features a pair of pants I discussed in my November Favorites post! This comfy pair of printed cotton pants from Forever 21 are my favorite pair lately! They’re high-waisted and they have pockets! I paired them with a black racerback ribbed crop top that I knotted. (See it styled with a skirt here!) I topped off the look with a beanie. (that I definitely did NOT steal from my boyfriend…hehe)

As I continue to blog, I find myself coming up with ideas on how to improve my photography! I still have just a little point-and-shoot camera, but I’m saving up for a nicer one 🙂 I really like how these photos came out! I found a shipping crate on campus to use as my backdrop, and I love how the mustard and navy shades balance each other. I’ve been following lots of photography blogs on Pinterest lately, so hopefully some of their tips will end up paying off! 🙂

In other news, I’m realizing by looking at these pictures how awfully pasty and white I am! (Any good self tanners? 😉 )The sun practically reflects off me haha.

Pants: Forever21 (no longer available; Crop Top: Forever21; Beanie: Amazon; Booties: Forever21; Eyeshadow: Maybelline Color Tattoo


These pants are so crazy comfy and I think they’re so great for this holiday season, when all we want to do is be comfy and eat food 😉 What do you guys think? Any photography tips? How would you style these pants? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

November Favorites

It’s finally Friday! And November is drawing to a close, which means it’s time for me to share with you what I’ve been loving this month. Take a peek!

novfaves1

First up are these amazing stickers! The great people at CaseApp and StickerApp offered to send me these fun stickers with the name of my blog! I was so excited when these came in the mail I nearly peed myself!! (just kidding haha!) But I’m seriously super pumped about these, they’re made of an awesome sturdy vinyl. I’m just not sure what to do with them, though…any suggestions?

novfaves2

My younger sister gave me these cute little candies that she found at a candy shop-they’re absinthe flavored, and I think the packaging is simply adorable! I’d never seen them before, but I think they’d make a great stocking stuffer! They come in tons of flavors. Find them here!

novfaves6

Next up: my new favorite pants! I’d show you them on, but I don’t want to ruin the #OOTD that is to come! I really love the Southwest inspired print, and they’re even high-waisted. They’re out of stock now sadly 😦

novfaves5

Last but not least, Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Bad To The Bronze! I’m so obsessed. So. Obsessed. It lives up to its 24 hour lasting claim, it”s creamy, it’s super pigmented, and just overall amazing! I’m going to collect all the colors haha. It’s definitely worth the $8! One of my top ever drugstore buys, for sure.

Poppies and Peter Pan Collars

Surprisingly, I’m enjoying some of the new updates to WordPress. The option to display photos in different ways is actually useful! What do you think of today’s all-circles layout? However, I’m not a huge fan of some of their other changes to their formats. More on that in a later post, though!


Anyway, today’s OOTD features one of my latest favorite items! I found this red dress at one of my local thrift stores for just $8, and it fits perfectly! It features a peter pan collar and an allover red, white, and grey poppy print. I can’t stop wearing it lately!

Back in middle school and the beginnings of high school I was obsessed with wearing just all black and concert tee shirts…*shudders*! If me at 18 had met me at 14, I’m sure I would have told me I needed a serious style makeover! However sometimes it’s hard to keep away from what used to be your default way of dressing…I saw this dress and thought that a grungy/indie vibe was just what it needed. I grabbed my trusty black Converse and some black knit knee socks, and of course a beanie, and voila! I had to grab a nice dark lipstick too of course. I kept the rest of my makeup neutral except for defining my eyebrows.

 

Dress: Thrifted, Knee Socks: Payless, Sneakers: Converse, Beanie: Forever21, Lipstick: Milani in Cabaret Blend.


It can be super hard to avoid your style roots, but overall I really like how this turned out! What do you think? Do you ever revert to what you style used to be? What do you think of the changes to WordPress? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!

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!

tank1

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.

tank6

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!

October Favorites

Hey there! I hope you all had a great Halloween. I dressed up as a flapper, and if I say so myself I think it turned out amazing! Check out my Instagram for photos! What did you dress up as this year, or did you do something else fun?

Anyway, I have some products I’ve been loving this month that I can’t wait to share with you! Scroll down to see!

octfaves1

I love statement items during fall, like this phone case and this chunky necklace from Forever21. This phone case is actually something I designed as part of a collaboration and giveaway with CaseApp. If you’re interested, pop on over and read about it, or join the giveaway here! I’m giving away a $40 coupon to design your own custom phone or computer case.

octfaves2

It’s so important to stay hydrated as the weather gets colder, and these two products are my most used currently! This Burt’s Bees chapstick in Mango is delicious smelling, and the Jersey Shore Sun lip conditioner with Vanilla Coconut Cream is just divine! Both keep my lips hydrated all day. The Jersey Shore Sun product is my favorite though, because it’s all organic!

octfaves3

Speaking of hydration, I’m sure everyone’s hair is needing some love right now as the temperatures change. This Organix Argan Oil hair mask is doing wonders for mine! It claims to be an intense moisturizing treatment, and I would say that’s very accurate! Using this once a week is keeping my hair soft and healthy.

I love red for fall, especially lips and nails! This Forever21 polish in Sangria is the perfect shade! You get what you pay for with Forever21, but I find this lasts a surprisingly long time.

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.

double2

 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.

double3

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!

September Favorites

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week started off right. Today I want to share with you what I’ve been loving this month! It’s been an insanely busy month so far, but I’ve still found time for a few fun things! 
septfaves3

septfaves2

First up: my latest favorite book! The Rise and Fall of the Gallivanters by M. J. Beaufrand is set in the 80s in Portland, Oregon. It follows a punk band and its lead singer, Noah, through the ups and downs of life. It’s a gritty, emotional, and amazingly descriptive story that will make you cry and want to shave your hair into a mohawk! You can grab a copy here.

septfaves4

Next up is something that had been on my wishlist forever: the Instax Fujifilm mini polaroid camera! It’s so cute, and I haven’t had trouble making the photos turn out great so far! It’s definitely my favorite of my favorites this month 🙂 To see how it does, check out my Instagram! I’m always looking for new bloggers to follow 🙂 You can pick yourself up one of these by clicking here!

septfaves5

I’ve also been loving nude and light pink lip colors lately; as sassy and bold that perfect dark fall lip is, it takes a lot of effort in the morning! I love these colors because they still provide a fun look, but are much easier to just swipe on. My 3 favorites are Milani Color Statement in Dulce Carmelo, Wet n Wild MegaLast in Dark Pink Frost, and Trestique Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude. (See the Nantucket Nude Shade reviewed here!)

I love this marsala leather jacket for fall! Its burgundy tones complement my wardrobe perfectly, and it really puts me in a fall mood! It was a great budget purchase too, at just $28 from Forever21. You can see it featured in an OOTD here! It’s no longer available in this wine color, but you can pick it up in black or beige, and the best part is that it’s currently on sale for just $21! Grab one here.
