I originally posted this outfit in the beginning of February on a day when it was warm enough to get away with wearing a light coat (as reviewed in this post). As stated in my previous post, I finally got a wireless remote for our camera and the difference between my iPhone pictures and these pictures are unbelievable. iPhone pictures are so much more forgiving in my opinion despite the lower quality.
When I was reviewing these pictures I felt the need to crop my head out go curl my eyelashes (or learn how to apply eyeliner and eye shadow) and buy some lipstick to make my lips stand out. I'm a complete makeup newbie. :( YouTube tutorials here I come! My bangs finally grew out so I think I need another haircut to clean up the layers. Spring is less than a month away so I really need to hit the gym to get toned too.

Have a great week!




  1. Love the double mustard and those polka dot tights! I'm such a makeup mess too, I think I've been using the same makeup since I was 16. I have no idea what to add or what to buy. :)

    When I originally commented I clicked the
    "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. Thanks Yi-chia!

    I think you look cute. My problem is not knowing how to apply it. I've bought plenty of stuff in the past with high hopes but ended up returning them because I had no idea how to use them. lol

  5. Thanks Annie! Appreciate your help with the remote!

    The picture with my back turned somehow came out darker than the others even though I didn't change anything. I tried to adjust the lighting in that one.

    I think you look great in these pictures. The mustard color of this coat is perfect. I also love the polka dots on the tights, subtle yet beautiful.
