OK, so how proud of me are you that I've finally taken my hair down from "Pineapples R' US"...? I Told you guys that I'd be wearing that hairstyle to the point of ridiculousness...and I meant it. Trust will be back! But for now we shall appreciate something a little more tame. 

Can we take a brief moment to discuss my lip color?! Like....seriously? This LASplash Cosmetics lip couture-lip paint, in "Til' Midnight"... **Jaw Drops**, I DIE! I thought for sure it was going to be a straight orange (which I have been craving these days...aside from the other more funky colors), but the dry down was a bit more red instead. Either way I'm still very much pleased with the end result.

And let's not forget to get into this top! This is the very same top as the one from my last post (with the exception of color and print of course), this ISH is just everything I could ask for in a "basic" top. The only complaint I have is the fact that it didn't come in every color of the rainbow, and in every damn print. This is seriously the cut of top I look for when I'm looking for casual-wear, but it's ridiculously hard to find. 

The length of the sleeve, the rise of the neck, how it rounds out at the bottom and how the splits on the sides cup my booty ever so righteously, it's just pure perfection. The material is substantial so it holds up to my jiggly bits and it's casual but not too casual as to where I look sloppy. Last but not least, it has an exposed zipper which adds an edgy yet classy touch to what would seem to be  a "basic" top (to which I didn't get a picture of because...epic fail).

I decided to pull out my not so basic white jeans that are adorned with watercolor splatters, and my Nine West faux blue suede shoes. It had been a while since the last time I'd brought these kitties out and it wasa perfect finishing touch to the tons I had going on already. What I love most about this fit is that with as many little statements going on, as a whole, this look is pretty tame while still holding interest. 

  • Statement lips...(CHECK!)
  • Statement necklace..(CHECK!)
  • Not so basic "BASIC", or what I'm going to coin, the "Un-Basic"... (CHECK!)
  • Statement White Denim...(CHECK!)
  • Statement, yet comfy, shoes...(CHECK!)
