heels - Steve Madden, bag - Aldo

While any color looks good with white, and the same for black, sometimes the best match up is black and white together. I added a pop of pink and touches of gold to make this interesting, and tada! I love this outfit. Simple, clean and cute, don't you think?

This Romwe skirt looks and feels like a skirt, but hey tricked ya-- it is not a skirt. I think it is what you would call a skort since the front covers up the loose shorts underneath. However, there is so much material, no one even noticed the back was not like the front til I told them. I love the light material and flowy style. It makes a bit of a swishing noise when I move too :) There is only one left on Romwe right now, and it is such a nice piece I would recommend requesting on their Facebook wall for them to restock.

Yesterday I spent a lot of time making a photo tutorial for my eye makeup. It is ridiculously simple, I mean six steps is not very many right? I did throw in some personal tips though, so hopefully you ladies find it useful. I'll be posting it very soon :)

And about my post title - it's from a Shania Twain song. I'm not really into country music, but I do have a lot of good memories listening to her on road trips from when I was younger!

  6. As a girl whose wardrobe mainly consists of the monochrome spectrum, I say yay for a classic black and white outfit! And I love deceptive skirts--as someone who's mildly addicted to billowing shorts that appear like skirts. ;) Gorgeous look as usual, girlfriend!

  8. I agree. Sometimes, the best match-up is black and white. It looks so clean even if it's a simple tee and jeans.
