heidi braids and orange lippy

Oh my goodness you guys, Fall is here for real. Thank god I have cozy sweaters and crazy patterns to mix otherwise I would be mourning the loss of bare legs and little sundresses. And I got the best new lipstick EVER, making my life fulfilled. Just kidding. But I have been obsessed for ages with that great orange/red they use in the J.Crew catalog. I realized awhile back that they sell the color, but it was online only and shipping was a little ridiculous for such a small item. But then they had a free shipping promo and I snapped it up! I actually bought both colors they had available, but Chili Flake is the one you want. French Martini is a really weird light pink that looks AWFUL on me.

This was one of those days that I thought I looked awesome, but my coworkers all looked at me like I was crazy. I guess I can't blame them, I count 4 different patterns on my body in these pictures (can't forget the plaid socks!) and maybe that gives some people headaches. But I like having fun with what I wear. I like getting dressed to be a little bit like playing dress-up.

  1. Super cute look! Love your hair and makeup

    1. I bet your hair is long enough! Mine isn't nearly as long as it used to be and I thought when I cut I wouldn't be able to wear it like this anymore. But now I start my braids just behind my ears and braid up towards the top of my head and it totally works.

  3. Love this hair style! It is just something so cute! Lovely outfit!

  4. I love this look so so much. I would totally wear this.
