Coral and Stripes

I love pairing brights with stripes.  For me it’s a win-win as it combines two of my favorite things.   And today’s bright/stripe outfit is no exception:

I paired the coral skirt (Banana Republic) with a navy and white striped dolman-sleeve tee (Target) which I layered over a white tank because it’s crazy sheer.  I added gray suede boots (Circa by Joan and David "Ralco" via Piperlime), my silver fringe necklace (Jessica Simpson Collection via Macys) and a few bracelets (self-made, local artisan, Macys).  And, of course, I love it.  The pieces are a little less structured than I usually like for my body, but I can’t deny it’s comfortable.  And bright.  And stripe-y.  So, yeah.  Love.

Do you know what else I love?  This new lip gloss/stain.  I’ve wanted to try a brighter lip for awhile now but was a bit nervous about it.  Until I found this YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Rouge Gouache:

Seriously, I love this stuff.  And I’m not just saying that because YSL is sponsoring me.  Because they aren’t.  Though I’d totally be open to that.  Hedi, call me.

Happy Thursday, All!
