denim shirt and red lips, always winning

on the days when your hair is a frizzy mess and you're feeling a little bloated from holiday treats, a denim or chambray shirt and red lips will take you a long way towards feeling better.  there's a little something in life you can always rely on. also, chocolate and peanut butter.  you can rely on those too.

Great look ! You are correct about red lips anytime I feel a bid ehh with an outfit I throw on a pop of red lips and tada transforms it instantly. Loving that bag.

I completely agree! My chambray shirt is my go-to when I don't want to think about what to wear. And red lips are my go-to when I don't feel like bothering with eye makeup!
