Black and Neon

Happy Monday! I am right in the thick of a 9 day in a row stretch at work and pardon me for being dramatic but I am DYING UP IN HERE. I will soon have some holidays and live music to see so I just need to keep my eyes on the prize and power through! 
Here is another of my attempts to survive a hot day in all black. I have added some neons to signify that I was, in fact, trying to participate in this thing they call "summer." 

EQUIPMENT

MAC Lady Danger lipstick, Earrings: H & M, Necklace: gift from my mom.

Long, Black, Gunmetal

Well, it is the middle of summer and it is only 18 degrees C (64 F) outside!! I am not dying and melting and sweating to death, hooray! Everyone but me is complaining about the weather. 
Today's outfit was worn for an evening of eating tacos on a patio. It features one of my new favourite clothing pieces. It is a long, cotton maxi skirt which works well for both cool and hot weather. I acquired it in the winter and it gets a LOT of wear, a solid purchase indeed! I paired it with a faux suede crop top....this particular piece has convinced me that faux suede is the enemy. I have problems with staticky hair and clothing and this top has the WORST static cling of any garment I have ever worn. This summer has been rather humid so this mitigates the static a bit. As I have said before, I love to have my metals matching for my jewellery; gunmetal was the theme for this outfit. 

THE EQUIPMENT

Cuff: Le Chateau; Kat Von D Lightning Sheer Lipgloss in Gunshine, Earrings: my mom gave them to me; Necklace: Alexis Bittar; Long Necklace: Workhall (local).
Lately, I have been experimenting with layering necklaces to get more use out of my jewellery. It is a great way to use what you have more often and get different looks out of things!

Have you tried layering your necklaces? What do you think of faux suede?

Attempting to Dress in a Summer-y Fashion

 IS IT FALL YET?? NO??!? Crap. Well then. 
Here is one of my attempts at trying to dress myself in the summer. I wore some colours and sh*t. 

THE EQUIPMENT

MAC Kissable Lipcolour in Strut Your Stuff, UD 24/7 Liner in Electric, H&M earrings, Toenail polish: China Glaze Celtic Sun, Avon nail polish that just says "FLAMMABLE" on the bottom, and L'Oreal Magic Top Coat in The True Gold. Necklace:from an independent clothing store in my hometown that I bought YEARS ago. I broke it quite some time ago and recently added a new chain to it so I could wear it again. 

MEHHHHHHHHHH

For those of you out there who are summer people, do share what you have been wearing! I enjoy looking at outfit posts of people who look breezy and effortlessly stylish in the summer.
