And... we're back!! My best friend has finally returned and we've hit the ground running; our travels had us so inspired we could hardly choose an outfit! We finally settled on this one: it's super feminine and so much fun! The mix of patterns and textures is a little daring, but the black leather belt divides it nicely and creates a very flattering silhouette. Em's sky high velvet Steve Madden peep toe platforms are impossible to walk in but make your legs look killer, especially with an a-line skirt like this lace one from H&M. We paired the outfit with my new favorite hair and makeup duo: I flipped my hair under to create a faux bob and pumped it up with some teasing. The long pieces in the front give it a modern edge and the red lips just add to the flirty effect of this outfit. All in all, this is definitely a pulled together, chic look that I'll be sure to sport during the fall. Maybe I'll throw in some tights and booties for winter! The possibilities are endless...until next time, xoxo.
