Outfit: Red Hair, Red Shoes, Pink Coat

red-hair-fashion-blogger-pink-coat

Your first question might be why I did an outfit with a wool coat since it is summer... Well, I thought that September 1st was the first official day of fall, and took all my fancy outfit pictures only to find out this morning that it doesn't start for another twenty days. The second one is probably about my hair, which up until last week was an almost platinum blonde. It's a long story, that'll have it's own blog post in the near future but it was for a job and although it isn't something I ever would have done on my own I'm kind of liking it. But about my outfit. I wanted to do a look that is frowned upon a little, pairing red and pink together, and adding a fun pattern to pull it together. So that yes you can wear pink and red together (even with red hair) and still look good. For me this is a simple running errands or a school day.

Shoes - These shoes are an older Michael Kors pair that I've had sitting around for a few years, but haven't worn very often. Now, I'm loving them, both the dark red color, with a suede texture and the strappy look of them. Of course being comfortable heels is a huge plus too. 

Coat - As soon as I saw this coat from Oasap I knew I had to have it. It's a light weight wool perfect for both fall and spring, and the bright pink color is so cheerful. At about $35, I was impressed with the quality, it's lined, has darts, and expensive looking buttons. 

Jeans - Nothing works better for making legs look long and thin than a nice pair of skinny jeans. Even though I fell of the wagon with fitness these jeans make me look tall and in shape. Plus for an otherwise wild look, they're a nice calm piece. 

Shirt - An older piece from Oasap this shirt is BUSY. To be honest with my blond hair I'm not sure that I can pull it off, but with the red I like the look. This is the perfect t-shirt for everyday wear with it's loose cut making it perfect for jeans, skirts or my favorite, yoga pants. 

iPhone Case - Last but not least, my new iPhone case. Ever since my last case basically fell apart I had been looking for a new one and was lucky enough to see this floral one on their site for less than $5.

Roundup: Beauty Reviews (August 24-30)

 Cherry Blossom Japanese Konjac Sponge - I'd absolutely love to go to Japan during the cherry blossom time, so when I was offered a Konjac Sponge to review of course I wanted to try the cherry blossom one. It's very smooth on my face, making it perfect for sensitive skin,  and works well with a typical cleanser.

 Foxbrim Complete Moisturizer - Anti-aging products, aren't something that I need yet, but I don't think it's every too early to start looking. I'm glad I tried out this lotion because not only does it have vitamin A but it's very hydrating without being heavy. 

Fitness Friday: I Fell off the Wagon

oasap-swim-wear

You might have noticed that I haven't been doing fitness fridays lately. I've been putting it off for the past few weeks, because I've not been doing that well. To tell the truth, I've been pretty much failing at both the diet and exercise. I should stop eating fast food, and cutting out all my vending machine visits, but yesterday I bought both a candy bar and chips from the vending machine, and for my second (not first) lunch today, I had McDonalds. Maybe that wouldn't be so bad, but as I mentioned with the second lunch thing, I've also had a problem with over eating. I don't even have to be hungry, just a little bored and I'll eat a, fattening, snack.

All that yoga I was trying to do, and the running stopped about the same time my diet did. I haven't really gained weight, but I can tell you that I haven't lost any or have gotten any more toned since then. I've talked about wanting to be in a fitness competition, but I can tell you that isn't going to happen any time soon. And any hope of becoming a fitness model, kind of goes away when you have a fat belly. 

Which brings me to the above swimsuit. It was given to me by the wonderful Oasap (and you might see it in an upcoming video) and I was so excited to get it. Not only is it a gorgeous color, and actually works with my large butt, not to mention the padded top, but as I'm looking now, I feel like I can't do it justice. So my new goal is making this gorgeous bathing suit look good on me. 

Giveaway: Life of Crime ($15 Gift Card)



GIVEAWAY AT END OF POST

Have you guys heard about the Life of Crime a comedy movie written by Elmore Leonard with my favorite actress Jennifer Aniston, as well as Tim Robins, Will Forte and Isla Fisher staring in it? Well  it's coming out in theaters, on demand and iTunes August 29th!

About Life of Crime
When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.
Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

First Day of College Outfit


School is starting back up again, and although I've done a college essential clothing post, as well as a what to wear to college, my style has changed quite a bit since doing those so I figured it was time for a new outfit. It's a bohemian inspired look with touches of chic and quirky, instead of my old very put together (and maybe a little uptight) look. Although this is my first day back at college outfit, it's actually pretty much what I'd wear any day of the week. Except of course when I'm feeling particularly lazy and put on a pair of yoga pants. 
  • Cuffed Skinny Jeans - I'm still loving skinny jeans, and now that I'm picking out pairs with a higher waistline I feel like jeans couldn't be more flattering. This cuffed denim pair in a light wash and destroy making them very casual. 
  • Printed Crop Top - Since this is college, and there isn't a dress code (unless you're at a hyper Christian one) crop tops are in. With a high waisted pair of pants, you aren't actually going to be showing much skin. I love the aztec and western inspired print on this one, and that it's not low cut. 
  • Flats - High heels might look stellar on you, but you aren't going to want to wear them for a full day of classes, especially on your first day. For almost everyone college means a lot of walking,  sometimes in the rain and snow, which is a lot easier in a pair of flats and these are so cute with their simple design and nude color. 
  • Animal Bag - This was the quirky I was talking about. Not only do you want to show other people that you're fun but it's also nice to have something with you that's just going to make you smile. Although I picked a fox one, you can find anything from panda bears to owls. 
  • Gold Earrings - The one thing that I ALWAYS try to be classy with, even when I'm going for a look that's more of a Kesha "garbage can chic" is nice jewelry. It can really pull a look together and keep you from looking out of place. These knot earrings with a gorgeous texture (similar to the pair I was given for christmas
