Working with Navy
Mint and Grey
Did you ever read this post from awhile ago?
If not I’ll sum it up for you. I was going to a wedding and I didn’t realize my dress, that I thought was black, was in fact navy blue. Therefore: it awkwardly clashed with my black shoes.
But I loved the dress. And I wanted to wear it with leggings in the winter. So I tracked down some navy blue leggings from H&M and threw this outfit together.
(doesn’t the dress totally look black?)
I have had this little halfsies sweater for about 3 years. I haven’t worn it in about 2 years, but for some reason I held onto it. But it completed this outfit nicely. What you can’t see is the straps are made of that same gold color of the sweater.
I know, I know. The dress looks black. It’s navy. I SWEAR. And my boots? About $30.00 from Macy’s in the fall. With a small wedge and slightly slouchy look, they are perfectly casual.
I also bought some new lipstick. I usually settled for my Soft Pink from Sonia Kashuk. But after seeing a bold lip on my skin tone, I thought I could punch up the color a bit for winter.
I’m wearing Color Sensational in Mauvilous Shine by Maybelline. It’s pink but not too pink.
What do you think? Do you like the pink?
What about the dress? Does it pass the test?
So many rhymes in so little time.
