OOTD: Casually Distressed

Sometimes you get an outfit idea stuck in your head, and nothing will make it go away until you wear it. I've been thinking about pairing these items together since February, and it wasn't warm enough until recently. Often these ideas for outfits I get work better in theory than they do in practice, but I was surprisingly happy with this outfit.
Outfit: Cardigan: Madewell (similar), Tee: H&M, Shorts: Target(similar), Shoes: Converse

Nails: Nails Inc Baker St. Necklace: Unknown, but I think it was forever 21.

I bought this cardigan on sale at Madewell a couple years ago, and they seriously have the best sale rack ever. I have gotten so much use out of it, and it's honestly probably my favorite cardigan I've ever owned. I'm pretty sure I just wore this outfit to go get pizza with my husband, and it worked out perfectly.

Makeup: Sonja Kashuk Tinted Moisturizer, The Balm's Frat Boy, Maybelline The Nudes Palette, Maybelline Falsies Mascara, Rimmel Eyeliner, The Balm Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter, NYX Turquoise Eyeliner used as a lip liner, Colourpop Raw Lippie Stix.

Since my outfit post on trends I wanted to try, I've been absolutely in love with ombre lips, and I'm sure I'm way behind on this trend. I used a random Turquoise eyeliner that I had, and just cut a bit off for sanitary purposes before I used it, but honestly I'm pretty sure I've never used it as a eyeliner, and then just filled in the rest with Raw by Colourpop, which I bought last year while I had blue hair.

I am absolutely obsessed with my white hi top chuck taylors. They're perfectly broken in and go so perfectly with everything. And the best part is when they start to look dirty or dingy I just toss them in the washer on delicate, and then let dry in the sun. Since I bought them they've become my most worn pair of shoes. And I think they're going to continue to be for the rest of the summer.
