Checkered Pants and Color Block Clutch











{Photos by Angel Rodriguez}

Blazer: Express $25 (sale), Peplum Top: Forever 21 $25, Pants: H&M $25, Flats: JCrew (old), Clutch: Banana Republic (gift), Necklace: Bauble Bar: (gift) 
 
I love what a pop of color does to a monochromatic look. Whether it's with a shoe, a lipstick, or in this case a bag, a little pop of color goes a long way. This color block clutch is so perfect for me because it represents my 3 favorite colors. When I was young I was all about red, as a teen is was pink galore, and now as an adult I love everything purple :) So a thumbs up to my aunt who gave me this for Christmas ;)!
 
I purchased these checkered pants over the weekend from H&M. I thought the pattern was pretty cool and they're the perfect pair of pants to dress up and down. I wanted more of a streamlined look that allowed the pants to be the focal point, so I opted for a black top and blazer.
 
 My sister got me this statement necklace from Bauble Bar for my birthday and I LOVE it!! I couldn't wait to wear it. It brought out the black and silver accents from the outfit perfectly. Thanks Jess! <3

Lace Tops and Full Skirts

Lace Top: H&M $30, Skirt: H&M $35 (sold out online but in black here), Clutch: JCrew (gift), Shoes: Christian Louboutin
 
 I am officially obsessed with full midi skirts! Not only is the shape flattering on almost every body type, they are also super comfy! So vintage and classic. This crinkled one from H&M was a steal at only $35. This color is sold out online but the black is still available. I saw this exact outfit in one of H&M's ads and had to have it. I loved the color combo as well as the added sexiness of the sheer lace.
 
Talk to you guys soon!

Bite Lip Lab NYC

Hey loves! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day weekend! We decided to head up to NY since it was also my birthday. While we were there we went to the Bite Lip Lab  in Soho. I was able to make my own custom lipstick! It was so cool. I've been on the hunt for a specific dark red lippie that wasn't too dark and wasn't too brown. The Bite Lab was the perfect opportunity to create exactly what I wanted. I also brought a nail polish of the exact color with me.

Here are some pics...

 

 
 
 
 
 
 


Scents that can be added and combined.
 
 
 
I looooved it! You can add scents and choose your own lipstick tube shape. A basic custom color costs about $36. A bit pricier than your average lipstick but totally worth it! I think I'll call this color "BB Red" ;)
 
Here's a selfie of my new color!
 
 
Talk to you guys soon!

Happy Valentine's Day lovelies! I'm so excited to be sharing another birthday with the blog. On past birthday's I've gotten into the holiday spirit and have worn red or pink. This time I opted for more of a vintage inspired all black look with pops of red. 

 I hope everyone is hanging in there with this sucky snow storm. It has really put a hinder on my BDay plans but I am desperately trying to make the best of it! LOL I wish you all a beautiful weekend!
