vert d'eau

Top: American Apparel
Jeans: Hudson
Boots: Nine West
Bag: Balenciaga
Scarf + Earrings: Urban Outfitters

The color of January is vert d'eau (sounds so pretty in French, doesn't it?)! I've recently acquired a vert d'eau Balenciaga (used, but in amazing shape!) and American Apparel nail polish in office, and I'm falling in love with the contrast of mint green against blacks and greys. Next up I'll be ordering some aqua-colored eyeliner from Urban Decay - I can't wait to see what that looks like on! I am definitely not a bright makeup kind of person, but I really want to try it out. Have you all experimented with colorful eyeliners before? I'd love some tips on how to make it work!

AA nail polish in office; Urban Decay eyeshadow in flipside; Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in flipside; ModCloth Hint of Mint tights; Yves Saint Laurent Arty Ovale Ring; Michelle Roy Peace Sign Stretch Ring; Nasty Gal Vintage The Mint Knit sweater

I had to include the blogger-fav YSL arty ring, but for those of us who can't afford $200+ rings, definitely check out Michelle Roy - adorable stuff for around $35!

I love this outfit! Comfy and chic, the best of both worlds!
I absolutely love bright eyeliner. It's such a great accent. I usually line my top lid with a pretty thick line of color (blue, purple, green), and then use black on the bottom. Or if I'm feeling really adventurous, I'll use it all around my eyes and keep the rest of the face really toned down (just foundation, maybe a little bit of highlighter, and some clear gloss). Hope this helps!
