Fun fact: I have been wearing red lipstick since I was in high school. MAC’s Lady Danger was the first high-end lipstick that I ever splurged on. One of the first fashion bloggers that I started following, Ashley Madekwe, wore Lady Danger in one of her blog posts and I just had to have it for myself. From the moment I swatched it on my lips, I was hooked. It’s a bright matte red-orange that just so happens to pair perfectly with this dress I picked up a few months ago at H&M. This dress is lightweight and breezy which is perfect for this heatwave we’ve been having in Northern California. I love the added details of the texture on this dress as well as the tassels on the sleeves. I paired this dress with my favorite pair of brown gladiator sandals and my red wallet that I carry around with me wherever I go.
This is definitely one of my favorite go-to outfits for summer. It’s so easy, effortless, and chic. It looks as if I’ve put a lot of thought and effort into my outfit when in reality, all I did was throw on a dress and a red lip. Who says style can’t be simple?
