STYLE GURU STYLE: Something Old, Something New, It’s All Blue

Hey, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! I’m going to let you in on a little secret. For the longest time, I have been afraid of trying bold lip colors. “I know, right?” My usual staples include the, oh so popular, red, pink and burgundy but that’s only on a good day. Lately I’ve been inspired to try something different. Thanks to celebrities like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner I decided to go for it, to be bold. I went out and bought a handful of fun and adventurous lip colors: black, a light blue, a royal blue and orange. This will be fun. This look was inspired by Christian Dior‘s pre-fall 2015 show because there were so many shades of blue and combinations of blue, silver and white.

As far as my outfit goes, similar to my lip color situation, I usually stick with the same colors: red, black, white and the occasional random splash of pink. I was in the process of packing up my apartment and happened upon this powder blue and white striped top. I love stripes; I feel as if they are a very classic look that you can pair with just about anything. So, I decided to pair it with a light wash denim jean. The blue on blue was very different for me, considering that I barely visit that side of the color wheel. Nonetheless, I actually really liked it. The whole time that I have owned this top, I never really knew what to pair it with. It was on sale, so I bought it. Story of my life. I decided to pair it with gold jewelry, another one of my favorites lately. I added my camel colored messenger bag to keep the look light. Black accessories with this outfit would have been very contrasting and harsh to the eye. I am so glad that I decided to try something new.
