OOTD: 2/17/2012

I am beyond excited I recently purchased a Nikon camera so my pictures will be a lot better!
Today's look is actually Melanie's work look. She works for Banana Republic so she gets to wear more casual clothing,  but the blazer she's wearing makes a pretty casual look more polished. This look would also look great with a heeled boot and a big bag!

  Blazer & Top: Forever 21

Jeans: Hollister Denim
Shoes: Bakers
Watch: Michael by Michael Kors
 Sunglasses: Walmart
Jewlery: Forever 21

If you have any suggestions please comment below!!!

The Weekend

Sorry I haven't posted anything I have SOOOOO many Ideas and like ZERO time. So I hope this week goes better and I have a hair and fashion piece up! 

I was devastated this weekend I broke out a bit because of one my foundations, but I did go out and buy new stuff so I can change my routine up! I talk about that below. I also finally dipped dyed my hair!!! I am excited! I love it!

I'm silly forgive me lol

My hair is naturally a light brown with blondish undertones, So I just dyed it a dirty blondish color to make the contrast! I will be making it lighter over time but for right now I love the subtle color!

I also went out to This really cool rocker bar in DC called the BlackCat. I didn't personally love my outfit but I loved my best friends outfit! lol So I do have to post it! 

She wore a leopard print cardigan, black leather shorts, opaque black tights, and Wedges. I loved it!!! 

On to the goodies I bought over the weekend!  

 MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural In Medium Plus. 
This is soo worth the $29 I paid for it. It's so easy to use. I am lucky to not have been a victim of acne so my face is pretty clear. This covers up redness. I just love it!

MAC Select MoistureCover In NW20 
 This concealer is sooo easy to blend. I love how a little bit goes a long way! Compared to my lancome concealer this is def my new favorite!

Sephora Bronzing Powder in Los Cabos (3)

I finally found a MATTE bronzer! lol I have a million super glittery ones but this one from Sephora is awesome I love how easy it is to blend and how you can use alot or a little bit depending on the look you want.

Two For The Day

Since Melanie is slacking in the fashion department because she is SO busy with school, She did promise for a post on Friday about how to look professional and stylish at the same time! so look out for that!

Today I had to go to work it is a very casual office so I am allowed to wear jeans and comfy clothes! 

This is my favorite scarf of all times! I love how the nudes and greys mix. I wish 
I know where it was from it was a gift from my grandmother it's from Italy.

I freakin LOVE sperry's I think I have like 3 pairs of these in different degrees of worn! lol
The are called the Sperry Bluefish in linean/Oat
They go with everything, Year round. Totally worth the 50 bucks. 
I am also wearing forever 21 Denim that I cuffed at the bottom

The jacket I am Wearing Is from
Aeropostale, I got on sale before christmas. I am soo sorry I don't have  great pic of it. It's so hard to take pics of yourself at the bus stop. lol

This bag is From Charlotte Russe. Sad part is that Today while I was shopping the strap actually broke!!!! :( 

I hope you guys like my look of the day! I will try to get my boyfriend to take a whole picture of the jacket, so you can see the whole out fit!!!
