The Magic of Lipstick

Let me begin by saying...
I AM NOT A LIPSTICK AMATEUR. 
I have been wearing lipstick since this past Winter so I must be pro, right? Ya, no. But I would not call myself an amateur lipstick wearer. Ever since my first lipstick purchase, a bright red Revlon color stay, I have been in love. 
Lipstick is such a small thing but it can really make or break a look. Its the perfect final touch of color and pulls together any outfit. 


Romper: Aqua 

Seven months after buying my first lipstick, I am now the proud owner of 15 different kinds, all with unique shades and made by different brands. My lipstick game is so strong. As of now my favorite lipstick is Trish McEvoy's glossy perfect coral. It adds a noticeable amount of shine and is such a fun color.

Fall is Here

I am finally beginning to feel like fall is approaching, I have already begun pulling out my favorite pieces and can't wait to wear them all. 
The mornings have been crisp and leave me wanting to bundle up in a sweater with a warm cup of tea, while the afternoons bring the sun and beautiful clear skies. Its been sort of hard to figure out the right balance. 
These over the knee boots have always been a love of mine, too bad they belong to my mom... I can't wait to begin really layering with jackets, sweater and hats!! Fall is my favorite season for clothes!

I have a few things I need to apologize for... First, my lack of originality with my facial expressions. I am not and never will be anything close to a model, so I usually stick to the basics but I will try to branch out so it's not so boring. Second, I am sorry for taking my pictures in the same three spots... I will try to find new and exciting backdrops, especially now that I can drive.

Leather Lovin'

THIS SKIRT, or should I say SKORT. I am in love. It's perfect, with really soft leather and a side zipper. I really hope that you all love it as much as I do because I will be wearing it constantly this fall. It's the perfect stable piece and so is this "kimono" like thing that is also from Free People. The billowy sleeves and two different red patterns make it such a unique layering piece.

White Lace

Happy Monday!!!

Yesterday I did a little "I need fall clothes shopping" and came out surprisingly empty handed, but I did end up with this really great white shirt. I love the simple yet classic look of a lace white shirt, some boyfriend jeans and booties. The perfect outfit to begin a long week with.

Braids

BRAIDS ARE BACK. 
No longer are braids just for innocent little children. They have been spotted all over the runway and now they have made their first (but not only) appearance here! 


Dress: Forever21 Shirt + Shoes: Free People

I have always loved wearing my hair in braids, but I never attempted to wear them with a real outfit. Usually I braid my hair when I can't stand to have it hang loose, in the summer, or when I am just sitting around my house. But not anymore. I love how easy braids are, and when accompanied by eye liner and lipstick I no longer feel that I look like a child.
