My New Faves

The skinny jeans are suddenly a new favorite of mine, as evidenced by the fact that I'm wearing them again today. Another new favorite? The Ashley Twist Top from Kiyonna*. Here they are, heading off to work with me:



I chose this pretty purple top because of the plunging neckline; I wanted to add a few date-night options to my closet. But obviously plunging cleavage is not going to fly at the office. So I put a lace-trimmed tank underneath. I think that touch, as well as the jeans and gladiator sandals, make it perfectly casual.





I dove into my custom Stila palette of eyeshadows, opting for a creamy base (Chinois) with a bronze shade in the crease (Golightly) and a touch of seafoam blue at the corner of my eye (Mystic). I smudged Stila Clear Color SPF 8 in Plum on my lips - it's the perfect touch of low maintenance color.

The clothes:
Purple twist top* - gift from Kiyonna
Lace trim cami- Gap Outlet
Skinny jeans - Z. Cavaricci via Torrid
Gladiator sandals - Payless
Pearl earrings - York Jewelry
Rose pendant - was Mom's
Two-tone bangle bracelet - Lia Sophia

  1. Cute outfit! The jeans look great on you and the top with the lace tank is the perfect complement and very pretty. That's a great color for you! Your eyes and lips combine to make you look absolutely radiant today! And I love the rose pendant!

  2. I think I would like this outfit even better if you were wearing heels. I feel like there's a sleek line that ends somewhat abruptly at the feet. But it's still super cute.

    I love that top on you.
