Trend Alert: Berry Lips


So today I decided to cover my first ever trend on this blog.  I am not typically someone that follows trends, but when there is a trend that I like, I am all over it.  Coincidentally, berry lips are one of those trends.

I used to never wear these dark shades ( I was too afraid), but I recently mustered up the courage to rock these colors, and have become addicted.  I think part of the reason I am so drawn to dramatic lip colors is because when a woman wears bold makeup, she makes a statement and stands out.  By rocking these dark lip colors, it automatically looks like the wearer (that doesn’t sound right…  wearee?) has confidence in herself, even if she doesn’t actually (fake it till you make it!).  Basically, it shows that you are and independent woman and doesn’t care what no man thinks!!

Nevertheless, berry lipstick is a timeless trend that always comes into style around fall and winter, always looking classy and crisp.  It looks good with virtually any outfit and never fails to make a statement.

Some of my favorite berry lipsticks:

  • Revlon- Black Cherr
  • Mac- Craving 
  • Nars- Vivien 
  • Clinique- Matte Plum

OOTD: Ruffles and Chokers


Dear Reader,

Today I went to go visit my grandparents for Thanksgiving. The car ride is two hours so I wanted to be comfortable, but I also knew we would be going out to dinner, so I wanted to look cute. Also, it has been super hot in California lately, so sorry if this look is not warm enough. If you want to make it more winter-y I would suggest adding some sheer tights underneath the shorts, doc martens instead of flats, and a cute hat. Anyways, enough of me rambling, on with the outfit!


I have been obsessed with these shorts lately!!  I love how they still have a summery print, while having fall-time colors.  Not to mention they are flattering on anyone and super comfortable!  Shorts: Brandy Melville.  Oh and these sunglasses will probably be featured on this blog a lot.  They are my only pair of sunglasses and I am OBSESSED with them.  Not gonna lie, I would cry if I lost them (and yes I know there are more important things in life than sunglasses).  Sunglasses: Thrifted.


I just threw my hair into a simple top knot.


I am obsessed with this shirt because of the flowy sleeves!!  Sure, they get caught on everything, but they make me feel like a bird…  So it’s worth getting caught on a few things!  Shirt: Thrifted.


An awk candid shot (shoutout to dad for being the photographer).  But I included this lil pic to showcase the back of the outfit.  The back is JUST as important as the front!!

Oh and I also wore a dainty sun-moon ring on my finger.  Ring: Brandy Melville


Here is the choker I wore.  I have been obsessed with chokers lately (as in wearing them with every outfit even if it doesn’t quite go)!  I will probably do a post soon about styling chokers…  This one is from luna laces.  Really cheap prices, good quality, lots of chokers to choose from, but shipping takes forever!  Choker:

Typically, when I wear chokers I layer necklaces with them…  I love layering the sun one with this dainty lil elephant!  Necklace: Boutique

Thanks for reading!!  Also, my apologies for the not so great photos, I was in a rush to get to my grandma’s house… I will have better photos next time(:

XOXO- BarbaraMari
