Happy Monday. AND BLAH! Why is it always Monday? I think today is harder than usual because it’s a holiday week! I hope you have fun plans with your friends & family this week. Yesterday I had a pretty long photo shoot with my photographer, and I have lots of great content to share with you! Let’s started with an outfit of the day featuring this gorgeous black bomber jacket:
I got this bomber jacket for a STEAL at $39. It’s still on sale, so go grab it. I absolutely LOVE the ruching on the sleeves. I’m really trying to branch out in my outfits and try things I may not have been initially drawn to. This outfit is one of those.
I even paired it with a silver necklace, and I never wear silver! I’m always a gold girl. However, I think that the long, dangly silver necklace adds a nice touch.
I grabbed this lipstick during the Sephora VIB Rouge sale. It’s a matte lipcolor, and I’ve fallen in love with it. I know I wanted something darker for fall, and this color fits the bill. I have a couple of pointers for darker matte lipstick (if you’re like me and don’t wear it often). First, apply a layer of your favorite chapstick underneath so your lips won’t feel as dry. Second, ONLY apply a thin layer of this lip color, because it can get way too dark way too fast ;)

I turned out really liking this monochrome outfit. I always find myself leaning towards bright colors, but a little black & white can be fun too! Find all of my outfit/style posts here.
