Primary








Some readers have expressed concern over the lack of color in my ensembles, as of late. It didn't even occur to me until it was pointed out! I guess I have been gravitating toward more muted tones; I tend to go through phases. I felt like being very colorful, so I threw on some primary hues and MAC Russian Red lipstick. I always feel a little silly when I buy Forever 21 and H&M stuff second hand, but I really liked that this could be worn as a dress or as a vest, and that it was under $10.

One thing can be said about wearing bright colors: it makes it almost impossible to be in a bad mood!

Outfit Details:
Forever 21 wrap dress (worn as vest) and Calvin Klein heels - Beacon's Closet
Yellow satchel - courtesy of Cambridge Satchel Company
Walk 'n roll top and blue skirt (from last year; no longer available) - courtesy of ModCloth
belt - thrifted

Love love,
Keiko Lynn

  3. I love the red lipstick too! It completes the look. And, I love how creative you got by wearing a dress as a vest. Our designers at kmartdesign.com are always saying to wear things differently and in unexpected ways.

  5. I'm loving this vest on you. And the wavy hair- reminds me of mine!

    And there's nothing wrong with muted colors-- makes you feel sophisticated or like an old-fashioned stunner (or at least to me it does!).

    Anyhow, have a lovely evening sweet girl!

  11. that's a great bag .. the lines are very deliberate which is not usually what i like, but i would definitely carry it. it goes really well with the blue! xo

  13. I think you look great no matter what you wear! From what I've seen you do a great mix of everything from neutrals, to mixing in color, to darker contrasts etc. Don't change anything! Although this is an inspiring look for me. I rarely wear brights - never brave enough.

    Love your blog!

  14. I love that wrap dress/vest you've got going on! I love the print; somehow it fits the "Russian red" lipstick. It gives me a Russian vibe. Maybe I'm insane. Anyway, this whole outfit is so cute and fun, and I love your hair down!
