August Days || Washington Mews with MAC

It's the last month of summer & it's hard to believe that next month will bring the first day of Fall.  August is notorious for being the hottest month in New York City, and today's outfit was for an extreme example of this truth.  I wanted a vivid makeup look to match such a balmy mood, and MAC Dangerous orange-red matte lipstick seemed appropriate!

I've heard blondes often shy away from orange-toned reds, but I've always liked the way it pairs with my fair skin and platinum hair.  I've actually found that I need to be more careful with very dark reds than vivid orange shades, but I believe it is all how you style it.  Tangerine lips look good with shades of peachy-pink, and bright sunshine of course.  The result is a very retro, 40's/50's classic pinup feel.  In keeping with the pale yet vivid scheme, I swept on a light dusting of pale blue eye shadow, mixed White Frost.  Retro striped shorts were perfect for a stroll along charming Washington Mews, a historic row of 1800's stable houses!
