Lookbook: Side Shaves, Sweaters & Skirts

2/09/2015

Much like my recent home decor style, my fashion sense is starting to live in a very specific color range: whites, blacks, grays and beige. And you know what? I ain't mad at it. I'm looking forward to this weekend because I look forward to every three-day weekend. Plus, Valentine's Day and my birthday are coming up, so it's a great opportunity to take advantage of the extra time. Maybe we'll finally explore a bit more of the bay area.

I must say, I don't wear skirts often, but I do enjoy the way this outfit turned out. Sweater and skirt style for the win. And I recently threw out a bunch of my makeup in exchange for new essentials. Definitely liking the new products. Can I just say that my face is beat! Kudos to me for figuring this out even though I wasn't blessed with much in the way of eyebrows or a cupid's bow, for that matter. I'm still really mad about not having one.

Oh, and do you like my whole side hair thing? Since I'm in no way about to shave the side of my head, I just pinned it back to create this faux side-shave look. Do ya dig? Ever since I saw Rosario Dawson rock it in Top Five, I've been seeing it around a lot on many people (from IGers to Rihanna and Demi Lovato). But I think Cassie originated this hairstyle a few years ago--but now it's on trend.

  14. This is such a gorgeous look Cheryl and I had to laugh when you said there is no way you'd shave part of your hair (I feel the same way) but you definitely made this trend perfectly and the sweater is so cute with the black skirt. Hope you have a good birthday month. :)
