Meet Michelle

Michelle
I don’t know why I think giving outfits real names is cool, but I do.
I know that there are pictures in the Abercrombie dressing rooms of their jeans, and they have names. So, I am not the only crazy one here. Whoever came up with the idea to name outfits was probably feeling kinda weird and decided to be a bit of a troll. That being said, most good ideas come out of those moods so I’m all for it.
I made this outfit on Polyvore on a day I was feeling particularly creative, you guys should check it out. Its kinda fun 🙂
 Now I imagine that I would wear this outfit on a bit more of a dressy summer day. Maybe if I am going to go out for brunch or shopping. Since I have longer black hair I would probably wear it up in a messy bun to keep it off my neck. That way I don’t get too hot, since longer skirts can get a bit stuffy in the heat. I also think a subtle makeup look would go quite well, the skirt is the main focal point so a red lipstick might be a bit much. I imagine maybe a light pink or coral lip with matte brown eyeshadows would be beautiful. I put two shoe choices here because I think the heels really make this outfit look super fashionable and put together, but the flats are a bit more practical. Honestly, I have worn outfits super similar to this and I would pick the flats over the heels in a heartbeat. Practicality outweighs fashion almost every day in my household.
I think “Michelle” is super pretty and I love the rose pink details. Let me know how you guys would wear this outfit 🙂

Hello friends! As some of you may have guessed, I went shopping 🙂

My mom and I were out buying a gift for my sister’s friend’s birthday and we found ourselves in Ulta. Surprise, surprise. As I walked around I found myself putting some things in my basket and ended up with this bunch. There is something so therapeutic about all the pretty colors and swatches. I really love makeup shopping. I don’t wear makeup on an everyday basis, but I do love me some new palettes. The main thing I have really gotten into lately is eyeshadow. After experimenting with some combinations, I kinda knew what I was looking for. I really needed a palette that had colors that would suit darker skin and brown eyes so I could take it with me to college. The lady at the counter suggested the LORAC Palette and the Two Faced Natural Matte palette. So, I bought them. I just couldn’t resist.

I was also looking for the new SuperWoman lipstick called BAWSE at the SmashBox counter, but they were out of them so I settled for Disorderly and Out Loud that are really pretty. I am quite happy with these purchases. Even though it left a bit of a dent in my wallet, an occasional splurge as a treat is always nice.

I am actually really excited to give these a try!

Hello friends!

The other day, my package from ASOS arrived! I actually squealed for joy when I saw the package on my desk. My lovely mother knew that it was coming and placed it in my room the moment it plopped on our doorstep. The black and white lettering on the packaging was just calling for me to rip it up and look at the beautiful clothes inside. If you have read some of my other posts, you may have noticed that my obsession with ASOS is rather new. But, it is not to be underestimated, ASOS has taken simply taken over my online shopping life. That is, what little there is of it. You see, I am the kind of shopper who will always be looking at clothes online, but I very rarely actually buy them. So when I do, it is a super treat.

I am so glad I bought these overalls. I mean how cute are they!?
