Concrete Catwalk // Mixed Greens

June 25, 2012

This turquoise-y tunic (not to be confused with the teal top) is one of my favorite vintage finds… the shift shape, woven texture & quirky mixed-green colors make for the perfect top to a basic pair of bottoms.  Keep reading to see how I style it up with distressed boyfriend jeans and mismatched tan leather accessories…

Did your keen eye pick up another fun mixed-color duo in the photos above?  The double-dipped mani has been a recent go-to of mine, and for this version I made sure to swipe on my bright lips to match!  After the major coordinated-nailpolish + lipstick moment in the 80s/90s, I remember thinking I’d never jump on that train again, but it’s been fun to bring the tone-on-tone trend into my beauty routine every once in a while.

Do you ever match your lip color to your fingernails?  Beauty DO or beauty DON’T?

Top to Bottom:
Tiny skull earrings – c/o Bing Bang for Bauble Bar
Tunic – Vintage, thrifted (similar)
Leather jacket – H&M (similar)
Necklace – Angel Court Jewelry
Jeans – Forever 21 (similar)
Tech case as a clutch – DKNY c/o TJ Maxx & Marshall’s (similar)
Heels – Target (similar)

    Every once in a while mine will match, but usually not on purpose – haha! Love the color and texture of this top – I just adore vintage finds like this because they’re so unique! :)

    I love the idea of matching lipstick and nail polish shades, but I really love to wear blues, greens, and purples on my nails. I don’t think that would translate so well onto my lips, haha! But definitely a cool idea, and I love how you pulled it off! That is SUCH a beautiful lip color on you!

    I love the distressed boyfriend jeans and the heels with this top! And I’m really liking how you kept the jewelry minimal to put the attention on your lip and nail color. So cute!

    What a great outfit! That color is beautiful on you, makes your eyes pop. And I love that leather jacket, what a great neckline. You are too cute.

    And to answer your question, lip + nails matching with a fun color is definitely a do!
