I love me a blue sky and decided to pair a blue pencil skirt x fancy crop sweater just to get in tune with the current winter blues. This embellished crop sweater by Robbi & Nikki, with it’s intricate fish scale details, has been in my collection for a few years now, but I never got the chance to really show it off. I kept the jewelry simple with some silver bangles by Amrita Singh and dainty Sapphire and blue opal inspired earrings. To make sure I did not overload myself with blue, I added a few pops of color. My nail polish by OPI in Popular Vote, is a cool apple red and my lips are a vibrant pinkish purple. I used the MAKEUPFOREVER Aritst Acrylip #500 along with the MAKEUPFOREVER Aqua Lip pencil in 10c.
I kept the jewelry simple because I knew my shoes would make up for it. The shoes have a chain link ankle strap detail, with small studs all around. I thought it would add some pizzazz to the outfit and draw some attention to my short legs. They did no snag my hosiery so that’s always a good thing. My top was just a basic cami from FOREVER21 that I folded over and tucked into the skirt. Everyone thought that I was wearing a dress so I definitely did my job. I kept my hair off of my face and added a few loose curls for a more retro vibe.
