Sailor Chic.

July 18, 2010

So I have a little confession to make - If you haven't already noticed, I have been in a rut lately. Nude, white, light pink. They're all beautiful colors and I love wearing them but I feel like I need to challenge myself more. Since red is my least favorite color I thought using it for an outfit would be the perfect way to break out of my comfort zone. The whole outfit is from Primark and cost a grand total of... 44 euros ($57 USD)!
As always, if you click on any of my picture's the link will take you to the full-sized picture over on Flickr!

Phew, picture overload! I added in a silly photo or two, I feel so awkward posing for pictures!
I was going to wear a navy cardigan instead but it felt much too matchy-matchy. I spent 10 minutes wondering "will I or won't I" before I settled for the red cardigan, but it turned out to be a waste of time since I left the cardigan off for most of the day!

Thanks to everyone who entered my giveaway! I'll announce the winners in the coming days..its going to take a little while to try and work out how many people entered for each prize!

I have been slacking a little on reading everyone's blogs so hopefully I will catch up on that tonight or tomorrow. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

  15. This looks gorgeous on you - really suits you. It's nice to have a change sometimes :)

    Red is a colour I never wear either. Although I did buy myself a red ring this weekend - but that's as much as I'm going to challenge myself!

  50. Love your make up in this one! Too bad that red isn't one on your list, it isn't really on mine either but that red lip is REALLY working for you. I just recently added a red tee to my wardrobe, which is a first in about five years. I like orange-red but red is a whole new ball game. So far people like the color on me :) LOVE THE BLOG all the way out here in Hawai'i :)

  51. There are so many bold red colors that I find these pictures to be truly lovely. It provides the right amount of sizzle and pop to your look as a whole. Your diamond-like blue eyes and sweet smile help add extra sugar to your spicy good looks here!

  54. Thank you everyone for all of the kind comments!

    To answer a few questions:

    Those are my real eyes, not contacts!

    I always had the lip piercings (they're not too noticeable from a few feet away though)

    I always had the piece of color in my bangs, its usually dark pink but its faded lately and I haven't had a chance to dye it. I actually hate it so I usually try and pin it underneath the brown parts of my hair, hopefully it will grow out soon.
