Building an Outfit #2 –Plaid Pants as Inspiration

I made sure to snap pics this time! These aren’t epic, so don’t judge! ❤ My goal is to become more of a morning person so I have time to have the hubby take a pic with me in the dang outfit. (Please don’t hold your breath because this has been my pretend goal for quite a while.)

Anywho, I’m not a huge fan of me in pink, but there’s something pretty about it. I have very fair skin that has some redness at times, so I have to keep the makeup simple when I wear lots of pink near my face or else I look like a poster child for rose vomit.

I decided to build an outfit based on some pretty cool boot cut plaid dress pants, and you can see the teeny tiny sliver of a cool toned pink stripe … this is where I started to build. I wanted to highlight the pink, so I wore a shirt in the same tone as the pink stripe. The outfit was girly, so to give it a bit of an edge. I paired it with a bomber-type of brown jacket. Next, I added tons of pearls — white and pink, and voila!

The makeup was kept to neutral browns on the eyes; the same browns as the jacket. Bronzer as blush because of my rosy cheeks it helps to cancel out excess redness because of the neutral tone, so I end up looking the perfect amount of rosy! I did the lipstick concoction shown in my previous blog titled Lip Gloss, Kind Of The End!
