Sweet Tart

Shirt: J.Crew Factory; Skirt: NY&Co; Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors; Necklace: ?; Bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs

In these pictures, I'm wearing my third Revlon Lip Butter shade, Sweet Tart, which I bought yesterday. My excuse was that I didn't have a pink one yet, so hopefully I can be done now... This particular shade is a little more 80s Barbie pink than I anticipated, but I still like it for something different. It doesn't look nearly as scary in these pictures either. My face looks weird to me here, though, because I should've been wearing sunglasses, and I normally don't smile sans teeth. Also, pardon my halfway dried, somewhat messy hair.

Several bloggers have done outfits very similar to this, so I have to give credit in general where credit is due. I wouldn't have thought of pairing a gingham shirt (or even buying one) with a pencil skirt (again, or even buying one) myself.

I used to scoff at those that said pencil skirts are a classic must-have for every woman; and until this year, I didn't own any. Well, color me converted. Nerdy fun fact: for a time at my old job, a few friends and I would have an "idiom of the day" that we would look up the meaning for and try to use in regular conversation. "Color me" + adjective never came up, but that would've been a good one.


  1. You look fantastic! A pencil skirt looks great on your figure.

  2. I think the pencil skirt looks good. Is the Revlon Lip Butter good stuff? I need some new colors but don't want to shell out $30 for YSL every time. Because I'm cheap. I'll admit it.

  3. Love the pink pout on you!!! Greta look dressing up the button down with the pencil skirt...definitely should be a staple in every women's closet!
