Greetings from San Diego! I’m taking a break from soaking up the sun and visiting friends to share the outfit I put together for a date I have a little later on tonight. Feeling inspired by the beautiful weather here, which feels more like Spring than back home does, I decided to incorporate a little pastel into my wardrobe- specifically a really soft, fresh mint tone. I didn’t want to overdo it, so I made these lovely cuffed lace shorts, which I picked up for under $20 at Forever 21 (CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE) the focal point of the ensemble, keeping it subdued by pairing them with a basic white top and brown, braided heeled sandals from ALDO (CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE). I like my legs, and these shorts are a perfect cut and fit to show them off a little.
I’ve also added a couple more pops of mint color with my jewelry and my nail polish. I’m loving this bold, chain-style plastic necklace, which matches the color of the shorts perfectly.
For my makeup, which I haven’t applied yet (because I want to look impossibly fresh-faced when my gentleman caller arrives), I plan to keep it simple. Rosy cheeks, subtle nude-eye shadow and a sheer pink lip balm- however, I will also be lightly lining my eyes with Chanel’s Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in “Jade” (CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE). Don’t be fooled by the name. The color isn’t the traditional dark green typically associated with jade. It’s a beautiful, long-lasting aquamarine tone that will compliment this outfit perfectly and really makes the blue in my eyes stand out.
Now that my outfit is all set, I’ve got to go get my face ready, spritz on some perfume, and continuously nibble on some breath mints- just in case.
Talk to you all soon!
