when trends don't work out

Don't you hate it when you really want to wear something trendy... but instead of looking fashion forward you just look like an idiot? This is a pretty common occurrence in my life (I blame it on the fact that I'm vertically challenged & "curvy") and the reason why you won't see me wearing culottes or mules on the blog anytime soon. Most of the time it doesn't bother me much but I'm seriously bummed that I can't effortlessly pull off a neckerchief like Leandra Medine can. The struggle is real when you've got a short neck.

dress: forever 21, cardigan: cheap monday, shoes: forever 21 (based on these schutz sandals), neckerchief: urban outfitters

And here's an awkward collage for selfies because I really liked the lip stain I was wearing. Because I have pigmented lips, I'm usually not a fan of lip products with sheer coverage. This Jordana twist & shine moisturizing balm stain in honey love is the exception. It applies in such a way that it blends in with the natural color of my lips instead of lying on top providing lackluster, spotty coverage. The best part is that it's only $3! #drugstorewin
