color repeat

 Blazer: ? (Similar at CR) (here at UO) (at The Limited)

Tee: Old (nice white tee and here under $6)

Skirt: J.Crew (similar at Piperlime) (here at ny&co) (at CR under $20

Shoes: DSW (similar here, here and here with a cute bow)

Belt: Target $12 (here at Asos for under $10) 

Watch: MK

Bracelet: Stella & Dot

Ring: JewelMint (my fav ring for sure, in gold as well)

I feel like a walking candy stick. But I do love these colors together. I wore these shoes on purpose, to break up the candy colors I got going on. 

And my hair hasn’t been heat styled in few days, like five (sounds like I haven’t been washing it lol). I’ve been letting it air dry…and the hot mess above is what I get. 

Happy Tuesday!

p.s. have you liked up to Everybody, Everywhere neon challenge?

    I love those colors together, the belt and the necklace really accent it nicely. Your hair looks great air dried! I'm so jealous- I tried to let mine air dry the other day and it was a disaster.

    I was really excited when you said you'd follow up your pink and mint combo with a work appropriate look so I've been looking forward to this post. And you did not disappoint — you are being pinned immediately. Also, I've got to say that your air dried hair looks SO much better than my air dried hair — my waves are tighter and frizzier. Is there any specific way you keep the curls to the bottom of your head and the hair on top more piecy? Or is that natural — either way, it looks fabulous. Catalina @ City and Burbs

      That hair question is my question too! love the top part smoothness with the bottom part curls

    • Lilly
      June 12, 2012 / 4:11 pm

      I didn't do anything to the top part (bottom part usually curls more than the top for me). Maybe because I used a small pin to pin some hair back it looks more smooth since the pin is pulling the hair slightly. I think the new product I purchased last week 'Fekkai Advanced Luscious Curl Spray' helped with curl definition and frizz. šŸ™‚

      Thank you! After I washed it, I finger combed it. Then I used the Fekkai Advanced Luscious Curl Wave Activating Spray (long name lol). I just purchased it last week and I think it helped with frizz and curl/wave definition.

    I would have never thought to add the leopard pumps to break up those fab colors! I am so not a bright colored girl, but I am slowly trying to add it to my wardrobe. Thanks so much for sharing this OOTD. I will now be brave enough to add a pop of color to my otherwise drab colored fashion, and not feel like they are waaayy unmatched and clash-y! I love being trendy. This color thing is something I have to work on this season! Keep the outfits coming! Love them!
