One thing you can never find me without is a lip color. I am always always wearing something and have at least a handful of options in my bag. I think everyone looks better with a little color on their lips, even if it’s as subtle as a sheer gloss. Since I get so many questions about my lip colors, I thought I would share my four can’t-live-without shades (I also put together this lipstick guide last January with more of my favorites):

1. NARS Lipstick in “Heat Wave”- This is my favorite red lipstick of all time. I prefer orange/red lipsticks as I think they’re more flattering on my skin tone and work for every season.

2. Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in “Pink Beige”- I get the most compliments and questions on this gloss. It’s a great everyday neutral color!

3. Bite Lip Crayon in “Cranberry”- I recently discovered Bite, but this shade has quickly become a must-have for me. It’s currently on heavy rotation- especially for date night.

4. Estée Lauder Lipgloss in “Plexi Pink”- This is a great gloss if you want a little bit of color (and high shine) without it being too much. It looks really pigmented, but comes off as a beautiful pink shade.

Color Blocked

ASOS Coat, Brandy Melville Sweater, Old Navy Jeans, Stuart Weitzman Boots, Salvatore Ferragamo Bag, Ray Ban Sunglasses (in blue), BaubleBar x Anthropologie Earrings

Happy Monday!

This coat had me at hello. Pink and camel? It might be my favorite mix of colors yet. (But then again, I say that about everything) I love the vintage over-sized style and it pairs perfectly with my mini Ferragamo bow bag. It’s like they were meant for each other. Also, have you checked out the BaubleBar x Anthropologie collection yet? It’s lots of tortoise and antique-looking embellishments, a beautiful combination.

Here are a few other great color blocked coats…
