Menswear Monday! I’ve got the Conference Week blues,  and will be featuring cobalt blue in all my outfits this week.

FullSizeRender(2)Plaid blazer (Target); polka dot tie (Dockers); orange scarf (?);  Cobalt sweater (Target); Blue and white striped button-up shirt (GAP);Tuxedo trouser pants (GAP); handmade Italian suede shoes (bought on clearance in a boutique in London)

Eyeliner: Lancome Artliner in Noir; Mascara: Makeup Forever in Smoky Extravagance; Lips: Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink; Hair: Straight up natural frizz (I washed it last night and didn’t straighten it before school today)

Between the curls, the tie, and the overall  British prep school vibe, I’m thinking there’s a little Hermione Granger in this look. I may have inadvertently cast a weather spell, because classes may be cancelled again tomorrow due to snow (and then back to rescheduling all the student conferences!).

SOTD: Nirvana Black by Elizabeth and James. The masculine complement to Nirvana White, this perfume has smoky sandalwood, rich vanilla, and fleeting violet.
