Stripes. Oh how I love a striped shirt. Perhaps it’s because it’s nautical. Or perhaps it’s because Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge wears them everywhere. Regardless, I love a striped shirt. It’s chic and easy. Add a little pop of color with a bold lip and boom- easy outfit.
It’s National Lipstick Day! So when I first got this lipstick in my last Birchbox, I was like “um, whoa. That’s BRIGHT folks.” And truthfully, it is. I use a brightly colored lipstick as an additional accessory. I kept the jewelry, etc, pretty minimal so that the lip was a focal point. I’m not going to wear this on a daily basis, but I love having it in my beauty arsenal. Btw, these Stila liquid lipsticks are insanely creamy, go on like a dream, and STAY. PUT. No joke, they rock.

Excuse my insanely frizzy hair, it’s like 100 degrees with like 90% humidity or something horrible. Naturally curly hair does NOT do humidity. I need fall to arrive ASAP. (Yes, I’m one of those people. I love scarves and boots and sweaters.) Also, in the cooler weather my hair doesn’t launch a full-scale rebellion within 5 minutes of walking outside.
