Bold Lips | Trend Spin


As you may have noticed, I am co-hosting The Trend Spin linkup this week with Laura and Erin! Thank you so much for having me ladies! Today we're focusing on bold lips. I will totally admit that I do not wear lipstick enough. I'm definitely trying to up my beauty game in 2014. I'm digging this berry-red shade from M.A.C. Sometimes a red lip can be a little hard to pull off, but this partizzcular shade isn't too overbearing.

Now, let's discuss this jumpsuit. I've been somewhat hesitant to try this trend; I'm a bit tall, so finding onesies that fit all of these limbs perfectly can be a struggle. I swore off this trend until I was shopping at South Moon Under one day and just decided to try one on on a whim. Holy crap. I am in love guys.

A jumpsuit is the perfect alternative to a dress for an evening out. For starters, they are SUPER comfortable. This Eight-Sixty suit basically feels like a chic set of pajamas. The older I get, the more I can really appreciate a comfortable going-out outfit. Two, I can add a blazer and pumps to this look and wear it to work. I'm all about versatility these days as well, since my entry-level budget can only buy me so many clothes.
