Ladilike Birthday Style (OOTD)

Last week I celebrated my 27th birthday. I had a mini-meltdown the first time I was referred to as being in my late(!) twenties,  but I am truly happy to see another year, and I always say that you are as young as you look and feel.  For my birthday look, I turned to Asos to find something chic and unique, and this sheer, burnout midi skirt fit the bill perfectly.  Because the skirt was the star of my look, I kept the rest of my outfit simple with a black tee and booties.  Of course, a dark fall lippie finishes the look!

Holy Chic OOTD

For the first time in ages, I found myself inside of Old Navy doing a little browsing.  I found a number of adorable little statement t-shirts that were super I picked up two! I paired this "Holy Chic" tee with a pair of high waist jeans and my new d'orsay flats.  I have been eyeing a pair of d'orsay style flats for a while now, but never took the plunge because I thought they may look funny on my feet. I'm happy to say that I was wrong and these are now my go-to neutral shoe.

Lippies for the Low: Fall Lipstick Shades Under $7

Long time no talk, but I come bearing gifts--the gift of knowledge that is! LOL.  I love MAC as much as the next girl, but sometimes my budget does not allow me to splurge on $16 lipsticks.  When  I want my beauty fix on the low, off to the drug store or the beauty supply store I go. I have found some great lipsticks in rich, pigmented shades perfect for creating your Fall beauty looks.  Best of all, each lipstick is under $7! Check them out below:

Stripes + Maxi OOTD

This look features two of my wardrobe staples--a striped shirt, and a basic black skirt.  Stripes are a very friendly pattern,  playing nicely with both solids and other prints, so a well-fitting striped top like this one is the perfect outfit starter.  This black maxi skirt was a clearance find from Target and happens to be the best maxi skirt I've ever worn. I have a hard time finding a maxi that is the proper length for my short legs, and without all the extra volume that many pleated versions have.  Hopefully I can go back and snag the print version

Come Out and Play(suit)

Part of what drew me to this romper was the fact that it reminded me of something from my childhood. Despite it's feminine appeal and it being pretty short, I can totally picture a fashionable mom and her stylish toddler (Bey & Blue Ivy?) having a mommy-and-me moment with matching playsuits.
As I wore this look, I couldn't help but let out my inner child and found myself giggling, skipping over cracks in the sidewalk, and telling the nearest adult when I had to go potty lol. Sure, I could reach the rear zipper on my own, but it was so much faster and easier to get a little help from my husband.
