The Perfect Nude

May 23, 2016

Everyone is nude! The spring season trend has been the nude look, reigning since Spring 2014 and finally it is widely available outside of the yellow-y tan shades of last season. I am in love with the rich brown shades of nude that match my skintone and they have been increasing in popularity. I wouldn’t wear make up that doesn’t complement my skin and I feel the same way about wearing nude colored clothes.

nude_mango_suede_vest_mossimo_target_shoes I have been so annoyed by all the cute lace dresses with the underlay that instead of a nude appearance just makes me look washed out but this leather suede vest from Mango was the perfect gift from my sister-In-law. After a happy hour fueled run through Target one evening I found the perfect shoe. Like a kid in a candy shop I grabbed them up and debated if Target was really the place to buy $35 shoes…

I really think that the cheaper $30-$50 shoes are more comfortable than high end $600-$1000 shoes. 

nude_mango_suede_vest_mossimo_target_shoes I have never heard anyone rave about the comfort of Christian Louboutin’s. Sex appeal yes, comfort no! I will tell you these Target heels by Mossimo are amazingly comfortable. The first time I wore them was for more than 8 hours- NO PROBLEM!

I smothered my lips with brown-nude lipstick and I think this is my new cute and casual look for summer.

    Nudes can be SO tricky to get right! They’re generally too dark for my skin tone as opposed to too light, creating a completely unnatural look when I try to pull them off! You definitely got the absolutely perfect complimentary shades going in this look!

    Love this tan on you! I don’t really wear nudes for the same reason as you – most of them are exactly like my olive skin tone and I don’t want to look washed out. If I ever find a nude that I like I’d give it a try though.

    You look fantastic…love that long vest and the heels are gorgeous!!!! Great combo altogether….very stylish!

    well, I guess the right away to wear nudes is to see what colours work best for our skin tone… I tan quickly so usually I try to get caramel sandals or heels for Summer….it is hard to find ones to suit my skin tone perfectly (and that are also affordable and of good quality). Last year I had luck with colour and price but they were of such poor quality they didn’t last me very long.

    I know what you mean about feeling washed out by some nudes, I have felt like that with certain nudes. I’m tan and can get tanner with the sun very easily, so it’s hard for me to enjoy nudes. I was so close to buying some nude shoes this weekend and opted for white instead, probably for this reason. I think I have to go for a real pale nude maybe. Anyways, your outfit is lovely. You styled the vest and shoes so well!
