You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan and the next five years trying to be with your friends again

I wore this outfit Saturday night out with Becca of Free Honey and Marissa of The Well-Appointed Catwalk. We all laughed when we revealed that we had some dressing anxiety when it came to hanging out with other fashion bloggers. I will say, though, we were a very well-dressed bunch! I’m also proud to say that at one point I hustled them into the bathroom and demanded they try out the bright pink lipstick I brought. It looked great on them both. I love introducing my friends to things they haven’t tried out before. Another (2) ladies are no longer bright lipsticks virgins!

The skirt is another piece I got at the Swapaholics clothing swap. When I picked it up I assumed it would be too small, but the back is elasticized. Whew! It’s also very short, like way shorter that it looks in this picture. I rarely wear short skirts, and it was nice to do something a little different.

    So glad you recreated this outfit for a post! And thank you for taking my bright lipstick virginity. Let’s do it again soon!

    I love this outfit Najeema! The skirt is adorable, and the shirt and sandals make the look playful instead of schoolgirl! Oh and your bangs — too fabulous :)

    Need to listen to LCD Soundsystem now. And wear some bright lipstick. I am ashamed to say I bought some last year and STILL have not worn it. I am setting a goal to wear it out this weekend. Now to make some plans appropriate for bright lipstick.

    Naj, you look really nice in this photo. I know that lipstick! :) Looks good on you.

    I had so much fun with you girls on Saturday night, we need to do it again soon! And I liked having bright lipstick virginity taken so much that on Sunday while I was out and about shopping I ended up trying on some more crazy lipsticks! I didn’t buy any, I’m not ready to take the plunge for the expensive stuff. But you better believe the next time I’m at CVS I’m coming home with some bright lipstick.

    i love the colors in this outfit- the lilac and bright orangey red. i actually have that dress too and have never worn it because it is so body-conscious. i love your idea of wearing it as a top- will have to SWF you. ~joelle
