30 for 30 Day 10: Red, White, Black, and Blue

This is pretty much my most favorite look so far in the 30 for 30. Especially with my cross-body saddle bag, I felt very much like a British schoolboy. You know, 'cuz they wear bright tights and short skirts so often over there in the UK...

I also minimized the accessories and went for some bright red lips! And I got these tights the same day that I got my two-toned purple ones at TJ Maxx. I can't decide which tights are my favorite...So much fun!

Plaid shirt: J. Crew, men's dept.
Sweater: Banana Republic
Skirt: J. Crew
Tights: Rue, at TJ Maxx
Booties: J. Crew
     Lips: Maybelline's ColorSensational lipstain in 65 Cranberry Crush (by stain they mean stain--I had to practically scrub my lips off to get the color off before bed!), and L'Oreal Color Riche lipstick in # 315 True Red on top of that. Perfect shade of red!!

What's your favorite makeup to wear for special occasions??


  1. I love mix of patterns here and the pop of color in your tights! It's totally awesome and unique!
