I have a love-hate relationship with houndstooth. In Alabama, we never have a shortage of it, as the pattern has been a symbol of Crimson Tide football ever since the legendary coach Paul 'Bear' Bryant first sported a houndstooth fedora (see here) in the 60's. Bama fans love their houndstooth. Go to a football game, and you'll see houndstooth shakers, koozies, jewelry, nail art... you'll see the pattern on any and every kind of article of clothing. That being said, it can get a little old seeing it everywhere. I've always loved houndstooth, but I usually don't buy it since there is such an
abundance overabundance of it in my state. But when I spotted this Nikay houndstooth cotton blend dress by Theory, I couldn't resist. The feminine silhouette softens the masculinity of the pattern. I feel very girly in it! : )
As for the lipstick, I opted for a fiery orange-red shade, Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin. It's super pigmented and stays on really nicely. You can't beat the drugstore price.
Happy Wednesday, y'all! Roll tide.
