Modest Monday: Orange is the New Black (And a Surprise!)

Monday, May 19, 2014


Just when you thought there would never be another Modest Monday post...ta-da! I always seem to get more outfit posts done when I'm home - mostly because I can rope my younger sister into playing photographer. So here's one of my favorite summer color combinations: orange + turquoise. I love pairing light, bright shades with orange because otherwise the look gets too dark and fall-ish.

Dress//Ross
Cardigan//Old Navy
Camisole// thrifted
Sunglasses// Forever 21



I love wearing bright eyeliner during warm weather and this teal Santorini liner by Hard Candy is no exception. I also wore it for the first day of classes last year. It's such a fun, bright pop of color, especially with brown eyes. 

I love, love sunglasses and am steadily amassing a solid collection. These cat-eye frames from Forever 21 are my most-worn pair by far. I love the instant touch of glamour they add to even the most casual outfit. I love wearing them with a tshirt + jeans as much as a dress.



 I found my pair on sale last semester, but there's similar pairs here and here





Summer is finally here...and it promises to be a bright, music, iced-coffee + ice cream-filled one.

Also! Fun bonus, since I was pleasantly surprised by y'all's positive reactions to my first (and very random) video, I decided to make another one talking about some of my recent beauty + style favorites...all of which are pink. 



Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter: Raspberry Pie// Paris Amour Body Lotion// Pink Chiffon Fragrance Mist// Burt's Bee's Tinted Lip Balm: Red Dahlia

Above are the links to some of the products I mentioned in between dropping almost everything, saying"ingredient-es" instead of ingredients, and essentially being quite blurry. If I film another video, I'll be sure to use my DSLR for better quality. Hope you enjoy and happy Monday, friends!

That outfit is TOO cute. I've been loving deep, bright scarlet colors lately. And as much as I'd love to watch the video, it seems to be private! :) Anyway. Have a wonderful day!
