Jade Kelsall: Miss America 2012 Inspired makeup

Hey guys,
here are the pictures of Miss Nevada 2012, Jade Kelsall who competed in the Miss America 2012 pageant. I loved her makeup, and thought it was a little different than most girls do for the pageant. It looked radiant on tv, so I'm assuming it looked good in person as well.

OOTD: How to Wear Sheer Tops!

I've loved the sheer blouse idea for a while, but fell behind in posting an outfit for you guys! =(
I'm loving fresh, clean colors this season. I've been digging through my closet to pair looks together utilizing older items as well, but tweaking them to work with todays fashion. 

I paired a loose sheer top with a tank underneath (duh!), and a tight(er) skirt to play around with fits

 To add a little more fun, I added a thin crochet belt in a cognac color

Since the top is simple and only has one texture, I went for a tiered, lace skirt to break up the monotony

I wanted to add a pattern to the look, so I added leopard printed sandals!

Still loving mixing black and brown with my LaMer watch!

Close up so you can see the texture of the skirt

Top: F21
Undershirt: F21
Skirt: Hollister
Belt: TopShop
Shoes: Macys (Carlos Santana)

OOTD: High Waisted Shorts

I've always loved high waisted shorts. Not only are the comfortable, but they are easy to dress up (or down). 

An easy way to dress up any outfit is to add heels- but in the summer time, go for wedges! They're far more comfortable, too!

High waisted shorts make your legs look longer! I also wore nude wedges for double the effect.

If your shorts are tight, then wear a loose top! It balances out the equilibrium a bit

A thick, bold necklace completes the look- plus, the shorts have a touch of red as well!

Top: Papaya $15
Shorts: BCBG MaxAzria $88
Necklaec: Americas Mart $20
Watch: LaMer Collections $99
Shoes: Cathy Jean $65a

OOTD: Feeling Lucky In Green

This top caught my eye (and heart) upon first glance. I've become a boutique shopper in recent times because I like finding unique pieces that I know everyone will not have. Vertical stripes have always been a favorite of mine, and I found the loose top to be charming with the vertical stripes, as loose tops dont help elongate your frame, while vertical stripes do. Hmm, juxtaposition. Enjoy!

Loose top, ripped jeans, ahh..the life.

Kimono sleeves add a kick to the shape of the top, making it more girly

The side view of the top looks sleek, while if you view it from the front, it looks loose and easy flowing

Love the peek a boo back! Nobody would know that this top is so special from the back at first glance!

 I threw on a braided dark brown belt just to add a bit more casual-ness (is that a word?) to the outfit

Pair the top with white jeans or dark jeans for a nighttime look- and if you feel daring, then skip the tank! 

Mixing patterns is huge this season- so I embraced that!

I'm still loving mixing black and brown, hence the watch and belt combo

Top: Lotus Boutique $27
Tank: A&F $15
Jeans: A&F $78
Sandals: Carlos Santana at Macys $30
Belt: Hollister $20
Watch: LaMer Collections $90

OOTD: Part Boho, Part Tribal

I have owned this dress for over 3 years. It was a cheap buy at Forever 21, and I love it! I hope you guys like the look I put together!

I turned a simple tube dress into something a bit more special by adding a thick patterned leather belt

This dress is so thin, its a great item for the summer!

I didn't want the belt and necklace to compete for attention, so I put the necklace inside my top so that all you can see is the top part around my neck

I am wearing all different colors in the jewelry, but it goes so well! 

Nude pumps are always the perfect shoe!

To dress it down, you can always throw on some flip flops instead!
