Stripes and Plaid

Just a quick selfie to show off some things I've been loving lately, including the combination of plaid flannel and navy stripes:

Top: This was an item on my fall wish list. I love the substantial weight of this navy-and-white striped crewneck shirt from Amour Vert that comes from the double-facing of two poly/cotton knits with different widths of stripes. This long-sleeved shirt is in constant rotation now the fall weather has finally kicked in. Long live stripes!

Scarf: A classic plaid scarf in a cotton flannel, from American Apparel of course. I've been wearing this everywhere lately.

Lipstick: NARS Sheer Lipstick in Dolce Vita. I stash this cult classic in my work bag for when I need a neutral pink. It goes with every occasion and the formula is moisturizing and easy to wear. It's no wonder why this has won tons of awards.

Nail Polish: Essie Twin Sweater Set. A blue-based, but true red from Essie's Fall 2013 collection. This picture is actually day six of this manicure and, despite a bit of tip wear, it's still looks great. The formula is a cream verging on a jelly. The color is not original but definitely a winner.

  1. I've been obsessed with Twin Sweater Set since it came out. It's been on heavy rotation on my nails this fall and I think I'm actually going to pick up another bottle of it just to keep for down the road.

    1. Yeah, it's a great color. It's funny how I don't really have anything like it in my collection even though it might be considered a "basic" red.

  2. I want every item from this list.

  3. Love everything! The Amour Vert top is on my short list. Glad to hear you like it.
