Pastels and Hardware

This is one of my weirder outfits. It’s baby blue eyeshadow and giant spike earrings. Pastel jeans tucked into combat boots. I don’t even think it’s a case of opposing styles coming together, like leather and lace. No, it’s just a mismatch of my favorite things right now. Some women crave babies, or chocolate, or coffee. Lately I’ve been craving super bright baby blue eyeshadow. I can’t even begin to explain that craving!



This could not be a post of my favorite things without a cat somewhere, right?


As for the crazy spike earrings? A gift from the ever-creative Holly. Check out her blog soon for DIY instructions- apparently they’re easy to make!

    I need to pierce my ears (in the lobes) again. I really want to wear earrings again. Holly, do you hear me? ;)

    Love those jeans – the color is gorgeous!

    I am really enjoying that you and your cat pose together. FANTASTIC. And I might sneak those earrings out of your bag while we are at Bar. Just to try them on. Not to STEAL THEM. I wouldn’t do that…I just…want..to okay. I want them. Simple as that.

    Aww, thank you (and everyone) for the earring love. I promise promise promise to get the DIY up over the long weekend – and it *is* so easy! Also, I love the mix of pastel, spikes and combat boots, but the eye shadow is what makes it! Wish I had your knack for colorful makeup!

    Girl, I am loving those pastel pants! And I actually think everything in this outfit comes together rather well.

    Of course, I love the cat too :)

    I really love those earrings! I saw them on Holly’s blog post and I thought they were genius. I also really like your pastel jeans. Very beautiful.

    Whoa, those earrings are SICK. And they look like they’re made from the kind of studs you use to stud leather jackets…hm, I may have to try.

    And trust me when I say, baby blue eyeshadow is weirdly flattering. It totally makes the whites of your eyes whiter…or something. And plus it really sets off the bright, cheery color of your jeans.

    Just hopped over here from Holly’s DIY post on those hearings. They are bomb. I’m always having a craving for eyeshadow! Yours looks great.

    These are soooo cute! I definitely want to try this DIY…

    p.s. I found your blog because Marissa from The Well Appointed Catwalk left a comment on my blog that said we looked alike…and I agree! We could totally be related. How funny!
