Our last night in San Diego we went for a walk by the beach and a little hike -- it was a beautiful day and it was super hot! Perfect for this playsuit I have been meaning to wear out! I love the pattern!
I was also wearing my new L*SPACE swimsuit top in Wild n Free that you can see peeking through a little -- I love it!

So on the first day of the conference, we decided to explore a little first before heading to the convention center to check in, so we headed to Mission Beach. It was so windy!! Caught this snap! What do you think of this outfit? It was casual but still appropriate for business if necessary!

Dark Lipstick - Urban Decay Venom

Hello!!
So I finally caved and ordered another Urban Decay Revolution lipstick that I had been eyeing for a while now, in shade "Venom."
I fell in love with it when I saw a swatch of it on another fashion blog (I can't remember which one! ah!). Sephora had a 15% off sale for Beauty Insiders so I found it as the perfect excuse/opportunity to finally buy it!
It arrived last night along with my DiorShow Blackout Mascara that I had ordered since I was running out of my daily use one. I also received some samples, but they aren't as exciting as this lipstick!
All of my makeup came in this huge box that was filled with filling paper and then my makeup was just sitting at the bottom of it -- what a waste of resources Sephora! I am disappointed! But oh well.

To be honest I was a little self conscious to wear such a dark shade to work -- but I wore it anyway because I was so excited and I think it looks good on me? What do you think?
I managed to wear a cute dress that I got in Cyprus years ago, it has some dark fuchsia shades in the flower print, so it matches perfectly! I also wore some leggings and little gray booties. Cute outfit for a Wednesday! Especially since I will be sitting at my desk and at meetings all day!







I have also received my April Ipsy Glam Bag and I am in love with the samples! Review coming up soon!

What do you think about dark lipsticks? What about wearing dark lipsticks to work? Do you think its appropriate, especially for a lab/research setting? Thoughts?

What I'm wearing right now!


I wore this dress on a night out to a club in Downtown LA! I originally bought this dress to wear to a wedding in August but then realized you shouldn't wear black to a wedding! So it just sat in my closet. This was the perfect occasion to wear it! You can't see in the picture (I didn't get a good pic, I tried) but in the back of the dress there is a little cut out so you can see some of my back.

What do you think?

Dress - Guess
Necklace - New York and Co.
Belt - Kaitlyn Clothing
Shoes - Charlotte Russe
Purse - Aldo

Black Dress Pant Yoga Pants????

I was browsing my Facebook newsfeed when I came across a "Sponsored Post" about Black dress pant yoga pants from Betabrand.com!
This sounds like the best invention ever. I had to post about it!
Dress pants that look professional for the work place, but are also comfortable?!? you can move around in them and they don't feel too tight or constricted! I would totally wear these to work every day if they were as comfortable as they are made out to be!
At $79.20, the price is a little steep for my graduate student pocket, but maybe one day I will splurge on these... ah a girl can dream. Maybe they will be a great investment??

Find them at Beta Brand!

Festival Fashions

Sorry I've been MIA the last two weeks! Been stressed out with work!
I have my third year Midstreams presentation coming up in a little under 2 weeks so I have been working my bum off with experiments!! I have my presentation in front of the department on April 18th, which just so happens to fall on the same weekend as weekend 2 of Coachella! No!! It looks like a great line up this year! One of my friends is going that weekend and I'm a little jealous!
But anyway, even though I can't go to Coachella, here are some outfits I would wear to the 3 day festival in Palm Springs!!

I am all about the crop tops lately! I love the cut, not too short (so as not to be right under the breasts) but not too long! Paired with some cute ripped jean shorts, super cute. I also love lace tops -- lace + crop = so cute. Cute white playsuit would also be suitable for the festival -- I love the one I chose in this set, it is so pretty! But there are so many more out there!
Since it is hotter during the day, you would definitely need shorts! And some comfortable shoes! Which is why I chose flat sandals or sneakers! No use in wearing heels if you are going to be standing around all day listening to great music!
For the night time when it gets colder (in the desert it is hot during the day, cold during the night), I would wear some cool ripped jeans or some faux leather leggings!
I would pair these outfits with some white or cream colored purses (keep you hands free!) and some big sunglasses! I love the cat eye style sunglasses, or the big round lenses! Very retro!
I would also accessorize with some beaded bracelets or charm bracelets, and some head pieces -- either a headpiece like the model is wearing in the lower left or a flower headband! So cute!

 I am missing out this year.... Ultra 2014 in Miami already happened last week... Coachella is coming up, and then there is EDC in Vegas in June.... I wish it wasn't so expensive for tickets and I could take the time off! Maybe next year! I vow to go to a festival once before I graduate!!

Are you going to any festivals this season? Let me know which ones and what you are wearing! Leave a link to your blog for me to check out! :)
