Tribal Harem

 Photos by: Yours Truly

Wearing: H&M Tank // Forever 21 Harem Pants // Aldo Peep-toe Heels

Now that I have a tripod I can hopefully get better at posting more outfits and ideas for you guys =D This is my first time using my tripod to snap photos of myself so its more of a test run. I'll try to get better with the picture quality as these are not perfect but not bad eh? 

Harem pants are "in" right now and it took me some time to love them. I told myself I would never own a pair and look at me now! Funny. I'm so glad I gave in! They aren't bad at all. It comes down to how you style them and how you feel most comfortable. Honestly, they are the darn comfiest pants ever! Just the right amount of bagginess up top with a fitted bottom. Best of all is the pockets! I don't know why but I sure do love pockets lol. Due to the all around tribal print I kept the top plain and simple but threw on my Aldo heels for a dressier feel. Something I'd wear on a date! Hopefully I'll have a second look on how to style harem pants in the near future, maybe a more casual style. Does that sound interesting? Leave me a comment, suggestions or tips on how YOU style your harem pants! 

Thanks loves,

MAC Retro Matte Lipsticks Swatches, Review

Hi Loves!

Matte lipsticks are my favorite! I picked up 3 out of the 7 shades from the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick collection that came out in stores today. They had already been released online on the 3rd last week but I prefer to see the colors in person before making my purchase. The 3 I chose are:

Relentlessly Red
Fixed On Drama
Runway Hit

 Fixed On Drama:
 Runway Hit
 Relentlessly Red

It's hard to pick a favorite since they are each unique in their own way. I'm a lover of nudes so Runway Hit was instant love. It has a touch of coral and light pink, super gorgeous nude. Relentlessly Red goes for second because of its application, it's a beautiful pink/red. Lastly is Fixed On Drama. Deep burgundy, which will require a lip pencil for a cleaned up look.

Beach Day

Hello loves! 
I'm back! August flew past me but hopefully I can get back on track with weekly posts ;D 
This past Saturday was nice and hot so I took the opportunity to put on my short shorts and hit the beach. It felt super refreshing walking in the water, which was unbelievably warm. I chose to wear my favorite Zara glitter flats for that extra sparkle under the sun, and my small shoulder bag because on hot days the less you carry the better. 
If only SF had less foggy days... I LOVE hot weather, which is why I took a mini trip to L.A. last weekend. It was HOT. lol. I was sooo excited to see my lovely little nieces, I wish I could see them more often =/ [You can view pics from my trip on my IG: SFMICHELLE]
