The weather has been so inconsistent here in NYC but it was beautiful today, almost 84 degrees. I purchased this outfit months ago during a trip to Forever 21 and it’s been sitting in my closet with the tags on along with a bunch of other stuff that I purchased for Spring. I decided to pull it out on this gorgeous day.
I attended The Makeup Show NYC yesterday and had a great time. I was so tired when I got home since it’s a lot of walking around but it was worth it. I’ll be posting coverage of TMS NYC this week so stay tuned, but this post is about my makeup for the day and a peek at what I wore to the show. I created a look around some of my Inglot eyeshadows in honor of Mr. Inglot who passed away a few months.
Daytime parties seem to be taking over in NYC, they are popping up everywhere. My boyfriend’s cousin had a rooftop daytime party the other evening at Brooklyn Terrace so we went to show love. I wasn’t exactly sure what to wear as I’ve never really been to a daytime party so I decided to keep it simple but still chic in a animal print fitted dress.
I am finally comfortable with mixing prints and bright colors in my wardrobe. I used to keep it very simple with neutral colors and basic solids for a sophisticated look but I’ve learned that you can look sophisticated and chic with bright colors and prints as well. I am totally digging mixing floral prints with stripes which is trending right now. Check out how I rocked it
I decided to give my hair a break and braid it up for a while so that’s how I spent pretty much my entire weekend, indoors braiding up my hair. I was excited to actually get outdoors today for some fresh air and of course to show off my hair lol
In case you haven’t heard, white pumps are back with a bang and trending this Spring. I am not particularly fond of white shoes as it reminds me of being forced to wear white patent Mary Janes on Easter Sunder every year up until I was like twelve lol. However, I usually keep at least one pair of white pumps on reserve for sorority purposes so I pulled mine out today.
Pastels are perfect for Spring and a great way to spice up an otherwise boring work outfit. The easiest way to wear pastels to work is to pair it with nude or tan. Here I did a monochromatic look on the bottom wearing tan pants, nude shoes and bag, paired with a lavender blazer. I topped it off with a lavender floral print, two-tone scarf.
