outfit + a little lip magic

November 4, 2013

bold lips with maybelline's color elixir

Confession: dresses are way awesome (ok, kind of a duh there). Think about how it does the work for you. Dress + accessories and you’re done. No pairing shirts with pants or skirts or who knows what. And, I loooveee this dress so much. I’m an oddly huge fan of dresses and shirts that are elbow length and this one also has an ultra flattering shape that I’ve worn more casual like here, and dressed up with these go-to heels. I could seriously wear either these new booties + these heels every single day…. but that’s another story for another day.

PS: these booties make my world! They’re the insanely more affordable version of the much-coveted Rag & Bone Harrows (we did an “ogle or own” here). I discovered them thanks to Kim and couldn’t be more thrilled. They’re comfy and the perfect little bootie for denim, dresses and skirts.

    Gorgeous! I love bold lips, it’s pretty much all I wear. I have been trying glosses more lately because my lips seems dry but I feel like glosses don’t always stay in place on me. This one seems to be a good alternative. I definitely want to try it.

    I love dresses as well, though I tend to wear jeans more often than not in the colder months because I just want to be nice and cozy.
