Tickled Pink


 
I typically never buy anything full-price (with the exception of items from Target or Forever 21).  But, when I won this styling challenge (thanks again RetailMeNot!) and was given a $500 gift card, I decided it was okay to break this rule a little since I wasn't technically spending my own money.  This tweed-front top was pretty high on my wish list - I love the modern twist on a classic piece + the fact that it will be so easy to dress up or down.  Speaking of versatile pieces, this peplum jacket is another new favorite - perfect for wearing now, but also lightweight enough to carry me into spring (and for such a great price!).
 
 

 
 
 What I'm wearing:
J. Crew top (here), c/o Lily + Violet jacket (here), JCP jeans (here), Guess pumps (similar), Target earrings (similar), Fossil watch (here), ALDO clutch (on sale here), gifted Etsy ring (here), Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar), Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Cotton Pink, Nails: Revlon Fuschia Fever, Essie Cascade Cool, Revlon Cafe Pink

I'm one of the finalists for the Olivia + Joy Blogger Styling Challenge and would love to have your vote - all you have to do is "like" my photo here.  Thanks so much!!

Love the nails!

LT said...

I have that same lipstick but my color never looks like that! What sort of lip prep and/liner do you use to make your lips look so fab? Thanks!

Kimberly said...

LT, I use Paula Dorf Lip Perfection around the edges of my lips before I apply any lipstick - it helps it stay on & keeps the lipcolor from bleeding/feathering. Hope that helps! :)

Kimberly
