Outfit Of The Day: Fluctuating Hot & Cold Weather

Basic cream lace top with asymmetrical frilly flouncing bottom

Sam and Max Lace Tank $12
I bought this from a store called Dry Goods

Button the buttons that sit at your waist line and add a belt to the same area.

Hot Weather
Belt from Dry Goods $8

Cold Weather
Ruehl Pink Cardigan $20

Due to the unpredictable weather fluctuation in Chicago, you always have to prepare yourself! I brought a cardigan along with me today when I was running errands in case it got cold. Here I am wearing a fitted cardigan, this will help create shape to my outfit.

Matisse Camel Colored Boots & Akira Black Label Skinny Jeans
I got the boots from Hautelook they were under $50. The jeans are from a store called Akira Chicago they were around $20 ( I think they were on sale).
These boots are my current favorite! I wear them EVERYWHERE. They fit perfectly and are just below the knee. They have a slight heel to them. I love how they are super structured.

Classic Gray Smokey Eyes and Natural Colored Lips
This is my favorite look! It is wearable for day and night. I love the classic smokey eyes. As long as it is not too heavy it is day time appropriate. I first used Too Faced Shadow insurance as a primer on my eyes. Then I made a thin line on my upper lids with Revlon Color Stay pencil liner (in blackest black). I also lined the outer half of my lower lids. Then I used the gray color in my Urban Decay Naked palette. I just added the color on top of the liner and blended it upward for a smokey effect. I curled my lashes and used Dior Black Out and Lancome Definicils Precious Cells Mascara. For my lips I just have on lip balm. The blush I have on my cheek bones is Rock and Republic X-Rated. The bronzer that I used to contour the hollows of my cheeks is a limited edition MAC bronzer called solaris. I also used clear gel from Ardell for my eyebrows.

Butterfly Clip (Michael's) 4 for $4
My current summer favorite is butterfly clips! I have worn this EVERYwhere I go, from the beach to concerts. They are super eye catching and a great detail to complete your outfit.

My on going obsession have always been cross necklaces. It is ironic because I am far from religious. But it is just something about them that is so beautiful. This is my favorite cross necklace. I love its detail and vibrant blue & orange color. I got it a while a go when I visited my friend in Ohio and I don't remember the name of the store.

Cuff Bracelet (Forever 21) less than $10
This is my current obsessed over accessory. It goes with everything I wear! I love to wear it because it finishes my look =] .

Sally Hansen Polish (First Kiss)
I actually don't own this polish. I painted my nails when I was at my best friend, Carly's apartment. My nails looked terrible and I just had to repaint them. I love this color it is a bright coral pink!

Final Look
This was my final outfit that I ending up with !

Hope you guys enjoyed this! Till next time.
