gingham and goth

J.Crew shirt and belt, Forever 21 dress and necklace, Camper shoes

My weekend was very mellow and this is what I wore to run errands around the Mission. It's one of those outfits that was born out of the 30 for 30. I never would have thought to wear this gingham shirt over a maxi dress without the confines of a limited closet.

Aritzia blazer and tee, Target skirt, Chelsea Crew shoes, Ambiance necklace, Revlon lipstick in Grape
I went out to dinner with my parents on Saturday night and tried out a lipstick color I bought earlier in the season but hadn't had the guts to try--a deep reddish purple. Bright lips are on the horizon for spring so I figured it's now or never. The dark tone took some getting used to and I felt slightly goth at first, but I think I'll be trying it again before the season is over.

  1. I love the pairing, however unexpected it may be! I don't know if I could ever discipline myself into doing a 30 x 30, but I love watching all the creative combinations that come out of other people's challenges.

  2. I need to get brave and try the bright lips! I'm trying to decide -- pink or red?

  3. Both! :) Or go to a makeup counter and play around. You'll know which feels right.

  4. it is hard to stay disciplined at times, but during the two 30 for 30s I've done, I'm really surprised by the different looks I come up with so it seems to make the discipline worth it.
