My beauty obsession of the week: fuchsia lips. In replacement of a statement necklace this fall, opt for a statement lip instead. Better yet combine the two, as my newest beauty obsession is as wondrously versatile as it is surprisingly classy. Sporting a stand out lip color has become increasingly popular, and my favorite new hue by far is fuchsia. Since this color is meant to be fun, play around with it when putting together your outfit to mix and match un-expected color combos (my particular favorites when donning fuchsia lips are navy or bright yellow). However, make sure when trying out this bold look, to stick with simple eye makeup (such as a strip of liquid eyeliner on your upper lid to create a cat eye), otherwise the look can take on a clown like effect.

Fashion lust of the week: colored blazers. After a one month hiatus, Poppies n’ Pearls is back for the summer! With all of the graduation excitement slowly fading away, many of you are now facing the looming prospect of the real world ahead of you. However, along with getting a real job comes the opportunity to revamp your wardrobe! While you always want to remain respectful of the dress code in your workplace, that is no excuse to let your wardrobe become mundane. One of my favorite work appropriate staples is the colored blazer. Completely polished, but still fun and fresh, this item allows you to add a pop of individuality to your office ensemble. My favorite picks for the colored blazer are shades of peach and lavender, both of these colors pair beautifully with a delicate floral top, or a cream shirt and pants. Celebrity fans: Rachel Bilson, Jessica Alba, Camilla Belle. Below is a link to a great melon colored option from topshop:
