The Ginger Diaries Part 2

In case you didn't look at The Ginger Diaries Part 1, take a looksy here.

I was very blessed while Jenn was in town because the weather was gorgeous... heck, it still is gorgeous. Good for me and Jenn, bad for my to-do list (passport renewal, studying at the time, cleaning the house). These next shots were taken in downtown St. John's in this cool little alley way with graffiti on the walls. It was kind of hard to take some of the pictures because of the profanities written on the walls... silly hooligans defacing downtown public property. Let me just say I'm all for the art of expression (this blog is my biggest creative outlet), but writing the F word on a wall does not scream artistry in my opinion.

ANYWAYS... onto the fashion:

shirt: bluenotes. pants: bluenotes (similar). clutch: forever 21 (similar). sunglasses: ardene's. shoes: spring.  belt: old.

Jenn's outfit was a mixture of classiness and funkiness.  Her black solid button-up complimented her  pants well, and the colors in the clutch (although you can't really see it that well) flattered the jewel-toned green.  Jenn kept her hair down naturally, letting it air dry, with little product.  Her make-up was kept minimal as well.  Minimal makeup works well with an outfit with brighter colors or extravagant prints because you don't want to over-do it.  This is one of the cases where less is more. Yay Jenn!

And here I am, trying my best to not feel awkward with the people who walked by.

scarf: old. shirt: asos (kindof simliar). leggings: old navy. jean jacket: the gap. boots: spring (similar). bracelet: forever 21. sunglasses: ardene's. worn with red matte lipstick by revlon. 

I'm absolutely in love with this jacket. It's the softest fabric ever.  It was pretty expensive (around $80 in the store when I bought it), but I can tell it's going to be with me for awhile.  It's my favorite purchase in a long time, and I literally wear it every chance I get.  Okay, enough about the jacket.. : ) I don't often wear patterned scarves with this shirt because it has a nice delicate pattern on it already, but in the spirit of trying something new, I decided to mix prints.  I'm happy with the way it came out; I like the neutrality of the shirt and the pop of color of the stripes on the scarf.  Plus the scarf helped make my red lips stand out!

I'm very blessed that my bestie could come out and visit me, and I'll be heading back to the west coast of Newfoundland in a week or so to see my family, Jenn, and a few other friends I haven't seen in awhile!  I'll try to update again soon... I took pictures of my outfit I wore two days ago but the quality of them is not that great, and it was really windy (hair = all over the place). We shall see if the pictures make it onto here.

Thanks for reading!
