WIWW: White Polka Dots & MARK. Lipclick Review

It would seem some of my better looking outfits are thrown together, last minute style. Where as the more thought out versions tend to be more flops than winners!

Polka Dots, Navy, Brown, White Blazer, Brown flats, White purse, Pearls

White Blazer, Trousers & Flats – Target, Polka Dot Blouse & White SAK Purse – Thrifted, Pearls – Gifts

Also there are days when I wonder why I’m dressing up, but after I get to work I’m so glad I did because important meetings have become the norm around the office. I’ve adopted the policy that when at work I need to look polished and professional at all times, even with my casual looks on Fridays.

For this outfit, I started off wanting to wear the polka dot blouse and then I added the brown trousers. I decided that the overall look was too dark for Spring, so I threw on the white blazer! Finally my white purse & pearls pulls the look together. Also because this was a softer look, I kept my makeup more natural and added the pink lipstick.

I know you think I forgot, but this is my new favorite pink lipstick I mentioned last Friday. I received this lipstick in the December Glossybox, it’s called MARK. lipclick and the shade is M.Powerment Petal. My first thought upon seeing this color was this will be a great nude color. Boy, was I wrong! In person this is a beautiful petal pink that shows up really well and isn’t nude at all.

Upon Googling the lipstick I discovered the M.Powerment Cause dedicated to breaking the cycle of dating abuse and partner violence. You can support the cause here by purchasing the M.Powerment Gift set which features this shade of lipclick M.Powerment Petal along with a special silver-tone purse-size mirror glimmering in shades of pink!

Its time for another round of Everybody, Everywear!!

Shirts, Pants, Shoes - Thrifted; Sunglasses - Ray Ban; Jewelry - old, had forever!

When putting together this outfit, I was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of pastels in my closet these days. I’ve thrifted lots of different pastel items recently, but I hadn’t taken the time to figure out who worked with whom yet. This little challenge opened my eyes to how many of them played well together. I originally thought I would wear a pastel sweater vest over one of these shirt, but I wasn’t too thrilled with the look. I remembered other fashion bloggers wearing two button-up shirts together and thought I would try it too. So far I really like the look and have received a few compliments!

These nude pumps were thrifted last week and were 50% off too. I’ve been looking everywhere recently for nude pumps, I’d been seeing lots of pairs in a size smaller and finally found these. I really like them, they are comfortable to walk in and the heel is just the perfect height for me. Oh, and they have a non-skid bottom, which is great for me because I’m always slipping & sliding in shoes it seems.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!! Go on over and check out all the other great Pastels at Everybody, Everywear!
