Dress Down Your Pencil Skirt * Stylo 196♥


Have you ever want to dress down your work clothes to rock it on the weekend? I know I have…

Definitely not every single piece, but things like a cute dress, a pair of white pants, a pencil skirt?

I am one who keeps her office clothes separate from my weekend garments. Part of the reason it is because I want to look different when I am off from work.

But sometimes I happen to love something so much, that I would love to wear it outside the office. And this is exactly what happened this weekend.

I am a pencil skirt LOVERRR! I love how they fit and how they look on me. So I wanted to wear this pencil skirt on Saturday, and I didn’t know how, because I also did not feel like dressing up either…

What a dilemma! ha? Then I asked myself the question: Why can’t I dress it down?

I was going to present my new jewelry collection to some clients, and I wanted to look a bit chic but not dressed up at all…so I opted for creating this Stylo.

It is comfy, summery, stylish, casual and a bit edgy, because I am breaking the rules and also because I am mixing opposite little details like studs with lace, and also wearing a pretty decent amount of bling.

Regarding the Makeup, I tried for the first time this awesome REVLON Colorburst Balm Stain Lip Crayon, and I am in love with it!!! <3 It is highly pigmented and keeps my lips well moisturized.

I paired it with my NAKED Eyeshadow Palette, and the result is a softy glam makeup look.

This Stylo is perfect for any Summer afternoon outing, where you are not required to dress it up, but you, as usual, want to look pretty

Black Floral Print For Spring * Stylo 178♥

I had not worn a black floral print in years!….till now. I usually wear lighter or brighter floral patterns, but this tunic definitely caught my eye and I needed to get it.

I love the open back as well as its lace cuffs. It is made out of a light chiffon fabric, which makes it perfect for a Spring outfit, whether it’s for day or night time.

I chose to add black leggings and black peep toe pumps, creating an all black outfit, and making the black floral pattern stand out to the max.

To add color and contrast to the look, I decided to wear this purplish pink bag from Target.

Regarding the Hair, I put it in a high bun, so the open back detail could show, and for the Makeup, I paired neutral eyeshadows along with one of my favorite lipsticks ever! Heroine from MAC Cosmetics.

All the jewelry I am wearing is part of my Jewelry Collection: Lakshmi’s Jewelry.
