Coral Lipstick & A Seahorse Necklace

It's gray and drab out, but I wanted to try out my newest lipstick shade--Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kiss Me Coral, inspired by the excessive Twin Peaks I've been watching lately and the costume party to follow this weekend. It is a simple and summery outfit, but, why not?
Wearing:  H&M shirt, American Apparel pencil skirt, Aerosoles flats.  
The necklace I bought years and years ago from one of those designer discount stores, I think perhaps Loehmann's. It's adorable, but also a little too whimsical for me to wear very often, except for those hot summer Sundays when I want nothing more than a brightly colored sundress and this necklace. It is a nice pop of color in an otherwise very gray day.
I'm surprised by how much I liked the coral lipstick! Bright lipsticks aren't really my thing unless it's classic red, and when I tried it on last night under my yellow cast lamps (the lighting in my room is awful, which is why unfortunately my photos are always edited to death simply for color correction's sake) it looked garishly bright. In natural light however it actually is not too loud and rather sweet when paired with an outfit of neutrals. Not just for Twin Peaks!
