my perfectly pink pout

{Sunglasses: Kate Spade | Dress: Similar | Vest: Banana Republic | Necklaces: Similar | Shoes: J. Crew}




Hello lovelies!  Are you ready for the Fourth?  I am!  I've been brainstorming outfit ideas all day.  The Fourth is so exciting (beyond the fireworks, the barbecue and the sun) because you can color coordinate without being totally obvious.  And let's be honest red, white and blue is one of my favorite pairings!

I'm a little bummed that I wore this dress this weekend because it would be a great holiday outfit with my red blazer. But I think I have some pretty good options up my sleeve!

Okay maybe I should stop blabbing about the Fourth...and now go on a rant about lipstick!  You guys for some reason red lipstick is so easy for me to buy and wear.  Maybe the shades are more flattering to every skin tone...I don't know.  But I can buy virtually any red or shade of red and it works.  Now pink...not so much.  But I have found the most perfectly pink lip color and I love it.  It's so gorgeous and it just pops!  If you guys need a perfectly pink pout, you've gotta try L'Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Fearless Fuschia.  I've got no stake in this.  I just happened to pick it up and it's wonderful!


Do you guys have any great go-to pink lipsticks?  If so, do tell!  I think I've made it known that I have an addiction!

  4. Pink is tough for me as well . . . I found my everyday pink "Craving" at my go-to MAC counter. That's my frustration with drug-store make-up, I love the impulse buy, but I end up buying 2 or 3 before I find the perfect shade.

  6. I love this outfit (per usual... I love all your outfits!). I have a hard time with red. I've only found 1 good red lipstick. As for pink or anything in pink tones... super easy for me to find. I'm loving the Revlon Lip Butters!

  7. I don't usually wear lip stick, I'm more of a gloss person. My go-to glosses are usually from Buxom. However, I am loving Revlon's Lip Butter. I picked it up in a coral shade and I am really liking it. Love your dress / vest combo!

  12. I love, love, love this outfit! You look so good girl! I am going to go buy the lipstick you recommend-it is such a gorgeous color. I hope it looks as good on me. I feel like I have a hard time with colors because of my pale, freckle-filled skin. But I do love Nars "Heatwave", which is that orangey-red made famous by Jcrew a few years ago.
