Ombré & Polkadots, Why Not?

by Jamila Pierre

Before we get into the outfit, let's discuss my somewhat "top-knot" and the overall (as PC as I can possibly be) "Barrio Chic" essence I'm giving here. 

Ok, moving on, so as you should know by now this lippy has quickly become an absolute MUST! In all honesty I have several more lippies from this cosmetic line that will make their debut soon enough, that are MUST-HAVES as well.... I think I subconsciously but not so subconsciously based my whole outfit around it. 

I pulled out my blue bandanna and my blue polka dot blouse too (because I was in a blue feeling mood), and at this point I began to hum the Eiffel 65 song "I'm Blue". LOL!

So in order to break it up a bit I decided to kick it up a couple hundred million notches by throwing on a seldom worn, but very much loved, pair of ombréd jeans (as if I wasn't already making statements with my lips, my hair up high, and Eiffel 65's "I'm Blue" as my soundtrack). I call these my "watermelon pants" and I absolutely love them with this top, and paired down with my coral kitten heels from Forever21.

For the finishing touches I just kept the jewels simple (yet bold enough as not to fade into the crazy) by simply adding this necklace from AFAZE that looks like it was made out of bike parts. 

Let's face it, this is a lot of look, but if you're anything like me....this look is for you, and makes perfect sense. And though I love a good minimalist look and have a style that can't exactly be defined, I do gravitate towards looks that come equipped with a megaphone attached to it.


What I'm Wearing:

  1. Necklace from Afaze. (On sale 3 for $10)
  2. Top from Target. $20
  3. Pants from $22.80
  4. Kitten Heels from $24.80
