New Color Combinations

I often get anxious when moving outside of my color combination comfort zone, but since I am making an effort to do better, I tried this out today. What do you think?

Old Navy Perfect Khakis (Originally $29.50; On Sale $19.99)
At first I had a slightly darker colored khaki skirt out to wear, but the rain today turned me to these pants.

Tucker for Target Button Front Dress in Floral Print ($34.99)
My second dress from the International designer remix

Old Navy Lightweight 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan ($24.94)

Belt from Target, Necklace from Target, Shoes, LizClaiborne from TJMaxx

10 Spring Trends: #9 Bright Gold

Just Bitten

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Gothic ($9.99)

I recently bought this lipstain as a part of the CVS sale I told you about. I decided to purchase the color Gothic, a blue red, over Flame which is more of a orange red. The color is not overwhelming at all in my opinion. I was told it looked like I had just eaten a red colored food, living up to its name! Check out the picture below and let me know what you think (Excuse the close up on my lips :)

10 Spring Trends: #7 Modern Whites

White is a classic neutral that will take you way past Labor Day.

OPI Shatter Polish

I was intrigued by the new shatter polish by OPI but I hadn't been able to find it anywhere until this weekend. I had to try it instantly. I had a coupon for a free polish at Ulta so I bought their Professional Nail Laquer in Island Hopper and over layed it with OPI Black Shatter.

The shatter goes on over dry polish and then it shrinks as it drys to give the shattered look. Its not the best image, but its a cool effect.

They have also announced  new colors of shatters. I can't find them for sale yet, but I look forward to trying them.
