Midi Skirt and Chambray + Beauty Giveaway

I've really enjoyed my midi flared dresses (seen here and here) so I thought I'd give this midi flared skirt a try. Styling a skirt is more challenging because you have to choose the right top to pair it with - either something cropped/fitted or that tucks in nicely.

Shirt: Garage (similar) / Skirt: c/o Shein / Necklace: J.Crew (similar) / Bag: Minkoff / Shoes: Ninewest (similar)

I've worn it here with a chambray shirt and sparkly necklace, but I'm on the hunt for a fitted white blouse with black piping. Please let me know in the comments if you've seen any tops that would look good with this skirt!


Since this is the season for sparkle, I've teamed up with Covergirl to giveaway a holiday makeup kit to 2 lucky Canadian readers! Each 5-piece set is valued at C$50 and consists of Clean Glow Blush in Roses (100), Cheekers Bronzer, Outlast Nailpolish in Wine to Five, Colorlicious Lipstick in Caramel Kiss (240) and Eyeshadow Quad in Stunning Smokeys (715). Entering is easy - just follow me on Instagram, click here and comment "I follow" under the Instagram pic.


This 5-piece kit is perfect for a sparkling holiday look. In the pic above, I lightly contoured with the Cheekers bronzer, used the darkest section of the Roses blush, and applied the first 2 colours from the Eyeshadow Quad. I'm loving the lightest eyeshadow in the quad - it's the ultimate inner eye highlight and is very long-lasting! The Caramel Kiss Lipstick is a super-pretty pinkish nude - it looks lovely on its own, but you can also layer it over a red lip pencil (like I did) for a more wearable version of a red lip.

Have you tried Covergirl makeup before? What's your favourite product? My first blush EVER was a Cheekers blush  - and I'm especially loving the Eyeshadow Quad and Caramel Kiss Lipstick that I used in this post.
 
P.S. Like my top knot bun? It's super easy to do - check out my tutorial here!

  1. You shoes look so good with that skirt, so why not a blue print shirt like this: http://bit.ly/1NCNW0e ? Even a somewhat tight t-shirt would look great! It's a beautiful skirt! jodie

  6. You look so regal in midi skirts! You remind me of a Hollywood actress. I haven't worn mine in a long time, but this reminds me that I need to again. They are more versatile than people think.
