I wore this striped peplum tee last week on the blog (here) with a more summery look but wanted to share another way to transition the stripes for fall. I think this burnt orange pencil skirt (last seen a year ago here) is a great color for fall and while booties and a jacket would really make this outfit fall appropriate, I would probably pass out from the heat if I attempted that!
This butterfly skirt from Leah & Pearl is so sweet and feminine; I feel like it can transition easily from work to a night out, depending on the styling. I originally chose to play it safe and pair the skirt with a black sweater but I decided last minute to throw in more color because… well, that’s usually my philosophy! And it’s summer so why not do a fun peachy coral and blue combination? This is my second piece from Leah and Pearl (first one on the blog here) and I am 100% happy with both pieces.
I didn’t create July 4th outfits specifically for the blog but as I was going through these photos, I realized they worked perfectly for July 4th! This dress is the second piece from Hutch (first Hutch look here) and this midi dress is such a classic. It’s sleeveless but I’m wearing it with a silk tee underneath for modesty. I love the subtle, primary color stitching on the skirt and of course the pocketssssssssss! 🙂
Also, I am obsessed with my two new red lipsticks. The first one is pretty famous; Mac’s Ruby Woo and the second is Mac Sheene Supreme in “New Temptations.” While Ruby Woo is an amazing matte lipstick in the perfect shade of red, New Temptations is a glossy, creamy lipstick in another gorgeous red shade. New Temptations obviously doesn’t stay on as long as Ruby Woo but I love the glossy feel and the fact that it’s non drying. I’m actually wearing both lipsticks here. I added New Temptations over the Ruby Woo to add some shine.
My work wardrobe is usually pretty relaxed as the “dress code” is pretty casual. But once in a while I’ll throw on a blazer when I have a big meeting or I want to look a bit more professional. It’s amazing what a well-fitted blazer can do for your confidence!
