Arsenic and Old Lace

Jacket: Silence & Noise (for Urban Outfitters), Top: American Apparel, Shorts: Forever 21, Shoes: Michael Kors, Lipstick: Milani Cosmetics in "Chocolate Berries" find it here!, Watch: Michael Kors

Hello beauties! How is everyone's week going, anything exciting happening!? I have too much going on to even wrap my head around, so I'm just all over the place, surprise surprise, lol. Anyways, today's outfit is great for a night out in the summer. I would wear this to get dinner and cocktails or to a house party or lounge. The outfit is comprised of basics that I'm sure most of you already have in your closets: a blazer, a lace or sheer top, shorts, and heels. Plus, if you haven't already experimented with the dark lip 90's throwback, YOU SHOULD!

I originally threw this outfit together to see a musical at the last minute with a friend of mine, but quickly made note that it could be my go-to look for semi-casual evenings out! The blazer is fitted so that it still flatters the form, and the lace top provides just enough skin to make it a "going out" look ;) My faux leather shorts are fun and comfortable, and allow for my ankle strap heels to have a moment to shine. 

For accessories, I wore my favorite lipstick: "Chocolate Berries" from Milani Cosmetics found here. It's fascinating how something as simple as a shade of lipstick can completely change the look of an outfit, as well as your attitude. This dark lip ties the look together, making it sleek, sexy, and playful. When I wear this shade I feel sexy and confident, like a woman who knows what she wants! As silly as it sounds, it's a powerful feeling, and I urge you to take a chance and try a plum lip shade if you haven't. You may think it's not for you, but I promise it will look great, just find the exact right shade for you! Lastly, I wore my rose-gold watch by Michael Kors as a statement jewelry piece. I love this watch, especially layering it with different bracelets :)

Alright BBs, that's all for today. Have a great Wednesday <3

  2. Dear Kayla.
    Have just found your blog; and I'm surprised that your posts don't attract dozens of enthusiastic comments.
    Personally, I adore the cool aristocratic beauty of your face. That alone will make you look great in almost everything your wear.
    And I just love your style which seems to go from casually stylish to the fiercely feminine and sexy. All done with such natural self-confidence which shows that all your looks are the real you, and not just dress-up and make-believe.
    And from a guy's point of view, I must compliment you for having the most gorgeous high-heeled legs in the world of fashion blogging.
    Kisses and compliments from Denmark.
