Black and White Jackets

I own two black-and-white jackets and I've worn them both over the last two days.

Yesterday's outfit first, houndstooth jacket, black work pants and black collared work shirt.

I hadn't realised, by my entire outfit (with the exception of my Joanne Mercer work shoes) came from Target. This jacket I originally bought for my Europe trip in's old haha

My nails were rocking OPI Big Apple Red. I wore this colour non-stop for the last two weeks (cheating and recoating even!). Matches with the red piping on the inside of the jacket that no one but me sees...

I was also trying out the only red lipstick I own. It's an old Covergirl one called Very Cherry. I'm planning to treat myself to a MAC one soon, figure then I can get the artist advice on the best red for my skin tone (I love MAC Red but don't know if it will be the right fit for me).
The rest of my makeup I left pretty neutral. Hard to tell with the wind though...

Today I am wearing a different black-and-white jacket, this one has newspaper print all over it. No label/designer as I bought it from a market stall.

The rest of my work outfit is similar, black v-neck shirt, black work pants and my Joanne Mercer work shoes (still haven't treated my new PeepToe pairs..)

This jacket has a waterproof advantage over the houndstooth one. But it's not as warm or as 'classic'.

 Makeup-wise I am wearing a slightly darker eye (if you can tell haha) and a nude lip today.

I also finally removed the red polish and have painted a french to let my nails see some light. I also filed them back big time!

Wearing OPI Alpine Snow and a Cutex diamond strength top coat which has little gold flecks you can only see in the bottle...
