Cobalt Blues

Jacket & Dress: Forever 21   Sweater: Target   Hand Jewelry: c/o Born Pretty   Boots: c/o My Hot Shoes

I've been having an allergic reaction to my liquid eyeliner lately, so for a couple days I had to go sans my usual makeup in order to give my eyes a recovery period. All I ever wear is eyeliner, so going without my only means of beauty product was a bit difficult at first. However, it's also made me more confident in my natural self. Plus, not having to remove makeup gunk at the end of the night is pretty refreshing!

Haha, anyway, if I look a little more tired than usual, that's why. In this outfit, I'm featuring a couple new buys from Forever 21, and I love them! The gingham dress and cobalt blue leather jacket are some awesome pieces I picked up while browsing online, and I'm glad I caved. Normally I avoid online shopping like the plague (for good reason, I've now got three more items on their way to my place...), but what with Black Friday and Cyber Monday going on, I caught the shopaholic spirit.

However, I did get something as a gift, and that's this hand jewelry from Born Pretty. Isn't it so cool? I had a similar hand piece from before, but it's broken since this post sadly. So this is a fun update to that old favorite, and I love the geometric triangle design.

I can hardly believe that in just two weeks, this semester is over! It feels like I blinked and I'm suddenly reaching the end of this year.

For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?

The touches of blue are fantastic, but what really catches my eye is the print on that skirt! Love it!

well, this is a really cool look, Linda! I love those bold shades of blue and I adore the doggie sweater (it's so awww!!). nice job with the layering, too! and I remember many many years ago some mascaras caused eye problems to me so I know how you probably felt.

Erg, I hate it when my eyes hurt from makeup. I wish the hypoallergenic stuff wasn't more expensive. Hope your eyes feel better soon! You look great. That is such a cute sweater and the touch of gingham is wonderful! I think your eyes are absolutely stunning, liner or not :)

Whatever procedure you are using for your eyes here, they look fantastic. So much going on in there and so much sweetness radiating from them. That doggy shirt is so very cute and the skirt tres chic. The bracelet/ring thingee is very cool too. Of course I adore those tights on your stunning legs and those boots are wonderful, but nothing beats that brilliant, soft, tender, amazing smile in shot 5. Most beautiful and exciting thing I have seen in a long time. Hope you can come visit my blog again sometime. You missed a poem and now a picture post is up I know you would like. Give your eyes kisses for me to make them all better :)P

I didn't see the difference, without any make up on you look even more pretty, dear linda. No flattery, just believe me;) I also like that outfit, probably it's one of my most favourite outfits of you:) You look amazingly great in blue!
Wish you a blessed day ahead!

Cobalt blue is my fav color, so I am all for your outfit ;-) Nah seriously I love the outfit, stylish, chic trendy. Would you like to follow each other on GFC? Please let me know on my blog so I can follow back. Thank you.

Ali Hval said...

Yeah, this semester has really flown by! It's crazy, and I can't believe I've only got a week left (of finals... dun dun dunuunnun!). Best of luck to you on your last two weeks, mist Linda!

Oh no. Allergic reactions to makeup products don't sound fun! Maybe opt for something more natural? Eyeliner can be some pretty nasty stuff, I think (like most makeup products... bahaha)

Oooh, all the blue here is really exciting. I love those boots of yours. They're so funky! And the print on your dress is absolutely amazing! I actually tried that same dress on at Forever 21 but it was way too short for me, so I'm a little jealous that you've got it ;) bahah, you wear it better anyway!

Aw, Linda! Sorry to hear about your eyeliner mishap. You don't look any more tired at all--I didn't even notice!

What lovely pieces you scored online. I love your signature touch of monochrome, like in your mint outfit (I'm such a sucker for mint--I even saw those tights at Target haha!) I usually avoid online shopping as well, but hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. That sweater is so precious as well.

I know, tell me about it! This year's flown by. I can't believe I just noticed, but I love your subtle ombre hair. Keep rocking it girl!

Have a beautiful weekend!
