This was a Friday-night-after-work outfit, which required a quick change: I kept the bottom half of my outfit the same, but switched to a “statement” top, added earrings, and a red lip. Total time: 8 minutes… Well, probably more like 15 because it takes me forever to put lipstick on. Is there such a thing as an “effortless” red lip? I think not.
And can we talk about that little girl on her bike, in the second picture? I grew up riding around a cul-de-sac in the suburbs of Carey, North Carolina. This girl is cruising down the alleys off College Street. City kids, guys. They are so cool.
I scored this top on sale at Asos (size small and medium still available!). And these are my go-to pants; I call them Audrey Hepburn pants. They are perfectly tailored, and really comfortable. I wore them all day at work, and then out for dinner and fun times.
I love these dramatic sunglasses by Karen Walker, and the lippie to top it off? Cruella, by NARS. Maybe I wasn’t born ready, but this lipstick certainly helps me pull it off.
