Stripes + Chambray

When in doubt, choose chambray!  Is there anything a chambray shirt doesn’t complement?

I purchased this skirt about a week ago on  It’s from the juniors line, Necessary Objects, and was on clearance for $14.97.  It’s such a beauty with its full silhouette, bold stripes, and side pockets.

I had a few styling ideas for the first time wearing it, but I decided to go with reliable chambray.

I initially ordered the skirt in a size M a couple weeks earlier, but the waist was too tight.
I went into a store to return it, but asked the associate to check the system for a size L.
He located one in that size and alerted me that it was way cheaper than the initial
price I paid.  So, I ordered the large skirt and it fit well.

      Heya. I'm wearing Mac "Heroine" lipstick. Unfortunately, this color was in a limited edition collection and is currently not available. I'm hoping Mac brings it back.

      You can achieve a similar look by pairing Mac "Up the Amp" lipstick with Mac 'Magenta' lipliner.

      Today, I tried a fabulous color by Dior that's very similar to mac Heroine. It's the Dior Rouge Dior lipstick in #786 (Mysterious Mauve). It's more expensive, but the color is fantastic!!
