What I Wore: Grad Party!

Last weekend I celebrated with my boyfriend a very big accomplishment of his.  It was a private party that we hosted at a restaurant/bar and the vibe was very chic.  Being that it was a bit more of a casual setting, I opted to wear jeans, which I almost never do to a party! lol I did, however, wear heels and a dressy top to keep the sophisticated look going. I threw this outfit together last minute as I actually had a dress that I was going to wear, but all in all I think it turned out pretty good!

*My hair looks SO voluminous around the crown area, this is just a shadow lol I looked at the pic afterward and I was like hymmm...where did all that come from haha

Here is what I wore:


This top is an absolutely gorgeous silk like polyester top from Express.  I actually spotted this on a trip to Express as I was about to walk out, and I had to have it! I love the horizontal lines (Stripes are another big trend for this Spring!) and the bold color contrast of the Hot Pink and Bone colors.  This was what I used as my statement piece of the night, and it was for sure a showstopper :)

**Under this I wore a plain white tank from Target, This isn't cropped per-say but I always like to layer something under blouses like this.


 I wore these Skinny Ankle Jeans from Forever21.  This was a trip away from home for me and I neglected to pack any jeans (I thought I was going to be wearing a dress for sure! haha) So I ran over to Forever21 and grabbed these.  I was pleasantly surprised with how well they fit and how nice they looked on! At under $11 this was a STEAL!


The Earrings are just some Silver hoops with rhinestones in them that I have had forever! They are from Express probably in the year 2007.  The necklace is very special to me. On our last trip to Puerto Rico, my boyfriend bought this for me because I am obsessed with Alhambra style jewelry. The inside of each "clover" has a mother of pearl look making this necklace compliment nearly any outfit!



These shoes are from Nine West and are called Rocha. I have been really into Nine West shoes lately, I feel like they are the perfect mix of elegance and trend.  Some other shoe stores are a bit too trendy for me lately. The Nude color from these shoes not only matched my shirt wonderfully, but made sure as to not steal any spotlight from the main piece, the shirt! :)



Pictured above are all the products (minus the brushes and moisturizer/toner) that I used to get ready that evening. 

Naked Palette (the original one), MAC Blush in Melba, MAC MSF Natural in Medium Plus, ELF Black Gel Liner, Wet & Wild Bronzer in Goddess, MAC Painterly Paint Pot, Victoria's Secret Lipstick in  Heated, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Under Eye Concealer in Medium, NYX Lip Liner in Fushia, NYX Lipgloss in Beige and finally L'Oreal Voluminous Millions of Lashes Mascara!

For my hair I just curled it using my Hot Tools 1.5 inch barrel curling iron :)
