Style: Primary Colorblocking

I’m growing out my bangs. Also, I tried my hand at false eyelashes for the first time. (Because ZOMG, I saw that Katy Perry had a branded line and I laughed so hard! All the way to the register!) Then I didn’t put my glasses on because my they were touching my fake lashes. So… I look a little different here.

I figure I can always cut my bangs again, but I’m trying my best to lay off the scissors.

This is the first of four style posts this week in partnership with Nordstrom. They’re having their big anniversary sale, there’s a ton of new stuff on sale right now, and I’m sharing my favorites with you.

I’m wearing a mix of new (from the sale) and old here. I’ve had the bag for ages, but I like the idea of subbing in a yellow pouch for it. And I’m wearing a tiered ruffle shirt that I wrote about last year, but I like the idea of wearing a simple white tee or tank and adding a big beaded necklace instead. Get the look, below.

    I have a tiered ruffled black top that I’ve never thought to tuck into a pencil skirt to sort of business-it-up. It’s asymmetrical and I wore it for New Years ages ago. I’ll have to see if it adds bulk, but I appreciate the idea!

    I’m wearing that skirt now-in the reddish/coral color! It really is a great skirt.

    Great look. Sometimes I wish I were a brunette. I think brunettes can wear deeper shades.

    I decided recently to grow out my bangs too! I’ll be watching for pics of you to help me with “transitional” hairstyles. Always love your style posts.

    I’ve bought several of the Halogen pencil skirts in a previous year’s sale and love them. They’re a classic and fit great, and they always come in fun colors.

    PS – My friend, who wears fake lashes quite often, tried the Katy Perry lashes and said that they are actually quite decent!

    Yay! More style posts with cute photos and outfits.

    I didn’t know Nordstrom had a sale, I have to check it out.

    Love the hair and falsies though I don’t see a difference, you must have nice lashes as it is, lol.

    You look so great in the bright bold colors. I cut my bangs also, it gets old real quick. I still love them for now, maybe in the winter I will grow them out.
