What I Wore 24: Make New Friends

Thursday, April 19, 2012

I thought it was about time for one of my favorite tops to meet one of my favorite skirts.
Orange Top, this is Olive Skirt. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you, too.
I wasn't sure if they would play well together, but they ended up getting on just fine. 



Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: J.Crew
Earrings: Hand-Me-Down from Mom
Shoes: J.Crew
Watch: Fossil
Ring: Gift from my dear friend, Emma
Eye makeup: Lancome
Lip color: Loreal
Nail color: Essie, Turquoise and Caicos


A few things you should know about me as we come closer to summer:
1. I am extremely fair. See that up there? Freckled and practically transparent.
2. I have no intention of doing anything about it.
3. I kinda like it. If you've got it, flaunt it; right? Pale is the new boobs.

    

I'm really enjoying shopping my closet lately. So far, no new buys! I'm on a roll.

  13. i LOVE that you do not plan on doing anything about your pale skin! i am the same way. and by the same way i mean i am so pale at times i may look sickly. ;) but seriously, pale is beautiful. and pale will be even more beautiful when we're old and don't look all leathery and wrinkled!

  14. I have yet to meet someone who pulls off the bangs as well as you. I think it's your adorable little nose. I can't be sure. Anyway, I love this whole ensemble.

  17. HA! pale ISSSS the new boobs!! also, i think that last picture of you should be your new FB picture. or something. just like, print a bunch of them out and pass them out to people and say "here's a really good picture of me." that's actually a really good idea...i should probably do that too.

  18. Shopping from your own closet is endless fun. So many times I pair things together that I've never thought of before and there you go, it's like I have new clothes.

    Love budget outfits. Way to go.

  33. I can not stress how you need to do a demo (video or photos) of your hair. I am thinking of doing the bangs and after seeing this I need to know how to do that amazing bun! Please do it for a fellow fair-skin Italian gal:). Simple beautiful outfit. You go girl!:)
