In My Closet...Color Block

Is it me or is it getting HOT in here? T.G.I.F my sweeties!!!  So happy the weekend is FINALLY here!  Before I go, here's a goodie for you.  Found these great pieces while thrift shopping and had to share it with you.  LOVING the color block trend right now so I put together my own outfit...which will also count for today's 'Fashion Friday' post. Of course, the awesome blazer and blouse will be added to the online shop and are in wonderful condition. I secretly wish I could keep them, but I know it will look even MORE amazing on some fashionista out there.

And don't get me started on the hot PINK lips. I got inspired after looking back at an old post HERE.  For some reason, pink looks way better on me than red...and I love it!  I loved it so much I kept it on until I went to bed last night and the Husband kept giving me the "whoa" look.  That's right. Eat your heart out baby.

Let's make it a SUPER BRIGHT and BEAUTIFUL weekend people!  Who's with me??
Spread some POSITIVITUDE.
It DOES a body GOOD.

You know we have to ask, what lip color are you wearing? :-)

Love the color blocking - hot pink and royal blue - great combo!

You could wear a paper bag and make it gorgeous! :-)

Jayme/Mendi: The lip color is actually from Wet-N-Wild. I picked it up while grocery shopping for like $3 and thought it would be a fun color to try on. Doesn't have a name...it's called 511B. :) The color stays on for FOREVER! Ate spaghetti and drank with it on last night and it didn't fade one bit. What a steal!

Linh said...

Jessie: Thanks! Hope everyone is enjoying my new series :) Happy Friday!
