Tori's Pretty Style & Beauty - See you Soon, Spring!

The OOTD:

I know, I know.

At this very moment, I'm sitting here in a tank top and a top knot, with the AC blowing something fierce. Should I reallyyyy be sharing a long sleeve blouse on the blog today?

Eh, probably not.

But! At the same time, how stinkin' cute is this top?!

Granted, it might make a little bit more sense for every day in April or May. But on a slightly chilly July night? I would still totally rock this!

Truth be told, I ordered this top way back. (Like post-Christmas sales back...) That unlined lace made me a littleee nervous to give this top a wear.

Thankfully, pairing it with a nude camisole underneath really did the trick! I felt super cute but still totally daytime appropriate.

Now, can we talk about these shoes? Insert heart eyes emoji here!

I love the cutout wedge trend and still have my eyes on these bad boys. When I saw this super affordable version at Target though, they were just too good to pass up.

They're sooo comfortable and, now that it's warming up here in TO, you'll probably be seeing them a heck of a lot more on this blog :). 


The Pretty Thing:

So, maybe May didn't bring us a lot of flowers (and instead brought buckets and buckets of rain...).

June sure did, though, and I'm all smiles about it :).


The MOTD:

Not only did you see aqua eyeshadow once on this blog - you're seeing it twice.

... in two accidentally similar looks. Whoops!

But hey, when it works - it works :).

Retro 60's inspired Makeup Look - Tori's Pretty Things Blog

I'm still playing with the Storylook Cinderella palette that I told you about last week, and I just really love that aqua shade.

So this time I went with something a little bit more Mod. You know - blue shadow, pale pink lips, big hair. Very Twiggy-esque, if you will!

My hair has quite a bit of natural volume, in general. So I let it go au naturel for this look and just pinned half of it back.

For the eyes, I started with a soft matte brown in the crease. Then I patted a darker gold shade on the outer half of the lid.

From there, I grabbed the aqua and sprayed it with a little setting spray to increase the intensity. I then patted that on the inner half of the lid. I used a matte skin tone shade to blend out the crease and highlight the brow bone.

I kept the rest of the look very soft with a pink blush, simple highlight, and a nude pink lip :).
