This past weekend I went out to celebrate my best friend’s 25th birthday. We enjoyed a really great Mexican meal and danced a bit at a club filled with a fog machine, a disco ball, an electronic bull, and a whole lot of Spanish music. Sometimes I act my age. Other times, I’m 25 going on 85. #GrandmaSouls
As the summer weather begins to creep in, I wanted to create a fashion look both cute, and comfortable. Something that I would survive the heat in.
So here’s what I came up with and I have to admit, I was happy with the end result.
Here’s the look in-you guessed it-crappy cell phone pictures. 😀
For this look I wanted to include darker, more timeless shades and pieces, and enhance it with accessories and a bold shoe and red nails. #YouGuessedIt #IAlsoRockedMyBLUEHeels #YetAgain.
[See my first post on styling them HERE]
-Gray and black checkered capri dress pants
-A simple light weight razor back black tank top
-Blue heeled sandles
I basically just used some products; curling mousse, curling serum, dry shampoo for volume, and hairspray and then I braided two braids on either side of my head and pinned them back. I curled the rest of my hair and pulled it to the side twisting it up into a messy side bun, with a few clear elsatics. I added the flower to dress up the simple do.
I got my inspiration for this look from a video linked below.
I just combined alot of whites, browns, reddish orange bronze colors, and golds, lined with black eyeshadow on the top and bottom water lines and blended a nude lipstick and a dark brown over top. You can basically make your own adjustments to this look, but I really loved it! Especially this lip combo-Left: wet n wild’s 900B “Pink Suga.” Right: Revlon’s 665 “Choco-Liscious.” I will definately be doing this look again.
So there is my look, I felt chic and sophiscated but funky with the blue heels, red nails, big rings and studded purse. Those little touches definately made the outfit less businessy and more me.
As part of my best friend’s present this year I got her tickets to a concert-
Here’s how I told my best friend we’re going to see Bethany Joy Lenz in concert!
I got her a card and printed out the concert poster to fold up and leave in the card. On it I wrote a little riddle that read:
She’s someone we’ve always admired.
Beautiful and unique.
A”Joy” to watch on screen.
A voice, oh so sweet.
She’s finally touring- New York City.
I hope you are free.
So we can live out a childhood dream
And finally see our ultimate idol;
a girl we’ll always know as “Haley.”
We can’t wait….full blog post (and possibly vlog) coming for that- post July 28th!
