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.
