Modern Redux

I wore a J.Crew boiled wool sweater, an H&M cotton peplum top, silk trousers pilfered from Grandma’s closet (previously featured here when I wore them on a date), my all-time-dig alligator clutch, also from Grandma (seen often on this here blog), suede heels found at TJMaxx, a mirrored necklace given to me by my friend Emily (which was featured in one of my very first posts), my SEE glasses, and Revlon lipstick in Kiss Me Coral.

And speaking of Grandma – my family and I are headed to the great state of Florida to visit the old bird. I’m taking a much needed Vitamin D bath.

Quick Change Artist

As for what I was actually re-rocking all day, I wore a dress from Lands’ End Canvas (it’s perfect for a humid summer: cotton, washable, breathable), with a navy blue leather Ferragamo belt.

For a meeting in the morning, I paired it with Aerosole pleather bow espadrilles, my well-loved Gryphon for Target bag, the Avs, and Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Peach with Trish McEvoy lipstick in Coral.

To teach a financial education class in the afternoon, I slipped on metallic linen Isaac Mizrahi for Target sling-backs with the Avs.

And for figure drawing class in the evening, I went comfortable with my snakeskin-print Birkenstocks, dad’s old backpack, and a mix of Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice with the Trish McEvoy lipstick in Coral.

Afternoon on the Catamaran

Yes, I am a believer in matching my lipstick to my outfit (look, I even made a whole post about how to wear it!).

Also, it is a boldface FACT that combining two lipstick colors is always, ALWAYS more flattering than wearing one color on its own. Here, I mixed Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice with Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Peach.
