Yes this is me caressing a white hippo statue as I stare intensely into the camera. I am wearing a basic, loose black dress with an oversized jean jacket and bright neon heels for a pop of color! In my outfits, I always love to have a statement piece, and in this case it’s my heels. Recently purchased from DSW, these Mix No. 6 heels had my heart the second I caught a glimpse of them. For only $29.95, I knew that we were destined to be together and that I had no option but to buy them – unless I wanted the universe to ensue into chaos.
Along with my heels, I am wearing a MAC lipstick of a similar shade. The lipstick is a neon pink and goes by the name of Candy Yum-Yum. It was the first purchase of my MAC lipstick collection [and was followed by many more #noregrets]. This lipstick goes perfectly with my outfit and heels; even without the heels, this lipstick is an accent on its own and is perfect for a sunny day or a night out!
While here I have on a jean jacket, I often opt for all black with an accent piece (but since I am a little dare devil, I decided to change it up a bit). Any type of accent piece is great for making an outfit unique and going from “I feel ehhh” to “I feel fabulous so let’s go outside so people can see me and bask in all my glory”. Whether it be a crazy colored pair of heels, pants, or top, never be afraid!! It can be easily pulled off as long as you keep the rest of your outfit basic and minimal in colors and textures.
Fun Fact #1: This men’s True Religion jean jacket is actually not mine but a friend’s jacket. But then again it’s actually not his jacket but his dad’s jacket. Regardless, I was kinda digging it and borrowed it and so here it is – being fabulously modeled with my pink heels.
Fun Fact #2: Hippos can hold their breath underwater for five minutes.
