To me, there's nothing better than pairing some bright colors with a little classic black and white.  The fuchsia and mustard are such fun colors {and perfect for transitioning into fall, might I add!} while the black and white stripes toned down the bright outfit into something a little more wearable for a Monday back at work.  And while I'll definitely be walking around the heavily air-conditioned office sporting the cardigan, it didn't survive past 5 minutes of posing outdoors in the Texas summer heat!

This makeup look uses only my most favorite MAC colors:  Satin Taupe on the eyes, Blushbaby on the cheeks, and Viva Glam V on the lips.  You can never go wrong with these shades.  And it's the most perfect no-brainer look for a busy post-weekend morning.  :)

And finally, it's Color Brigade time!  The winner of last week's feature is Jacklyn of Aly's Book rocking a pink, black, and white combo.  Looks like the trick of pairing brights with black and white isn't just a trick that I do!
