It's just plum lipstick, I swear I don't have hypothermia!


Whenever I reach in my closet to find something to wear in the morning, I always find myself reaching for darker colors like black and gray.  So this morning I forced myself to go against the norm and grab something lighter.  

I just got this white Express top for Christmas and I love it.  It has beautiful lace detail at the top and it is so comfortable.  I also got the purple skinnies for Christmas and I am surprised at how versatile they are.  I've already worn them a bunch of times.  I was a little nervous to get them because I wasn't sure how often I would really wear them, and I've also heard that colored denim is slowly phasing itself out, but they had an amazing deal on them so I was sold.

If you couldn't tell by the look on my face in these pictures, it was FREEZING outside.  Yeah, I'm a wimp, I know it.  And of course right after I took these pictures I realized I could have worn my coat in the pictures because it matched and was actually really cute with it ...fail.  Oh well!

I tried a sheer plum lipstick for the first time and I think I actually really love it!  I figured what better time to wear it than with plum colored pants!  I was a little worried that I would look like I had hypothermia or something. haha!


Do you think colored denim is slowly phasing itself out?

  1. Love that top and I'm still into colored denim. A fashion blogger wore hers yesterday and I commented that it reminded me to pull mine out from the back of the closet.

  3. Plum is one of my all-time favorite colours! I almost bought plum skinnies once, but I just couldn't find the right fit in the right colour. These ones look great. I still love coloured denim and wore a pair yesterday! That top is beautiful. It looks so elegant and classic. I always tend to reach for darker colours too, but anything black shows so much dog hair, so I think it's time to invest in some lighter pieces.

  4. It's definitely one of my favorite colors too! I love purple! Thank you so much! That top is really comfortable too. I'm definitely trying to get myself to wear light colors more often.

  7. I think you look great Julie! I don't have any colorful pants, I want some but I'm afraid I would just look silly in them. Plus I hate my legs so I don't want to give people any more reason to stare at them :P

  8. Thanks so much! I think that's the same reason it took me so long to try them too. I still haven't tried the pattern leggings for the same reason. I hate scrawny little chicken legs. lol!

  9. I love that outfit! I think colored denim that is dark like yours is still very wearable and is a nice switch for winter instead of dark/black washes. Also, that bracelet is gorgeous! Totally my style.


    I haven't done any outfit posts since it started to get cold, so you're much stronger than I am.

  15. I love this outfit! I will wear colored denim, even if it's not cool anymore. I love it. It adds so much to an outfit!

  16. In my opinion, I think some colored denim is out. Cobalt? Mint? Coral? Those are all done. Burgundy? Black? Forest Green? All in. I plan on carrying over my burgundy jeans into the spring with pink sweaters and yellow tops. They are so much more versatile than the VERY bright colors of previous years. I had a pair of coral jeans that lasted one season in my closet. Far too limited and far too much color across my booty. I love them with this creamy white top. So pretty! Definitely a great choice.

  17. Thank you! I think they are my new favorite colored jeans. But I may be biased because I love purple so much. haha! I have mint and cobalt skinnies...but I have noticed myself grabbing for the mint ones less. I think I've only worn this twice this winter. I never had the coral but I thought about getting them because I saw a lot of outfits I liked with them. I'm kind of glad I never picked them up now! haha. I love my burgundy and black ones too. I wear them all the time. I practically live in the black lol
