Rain drops & Red lips

 I was once told by my boss to wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes to the office, as we were going to go through the warehouse that day. I had never been so stressed about what to wear in my life. I just couldn’t grasp the concept of wearing tennis shoes for reasons other than running. Clearly dressing down is not my forte.

I only bring this up because his weekend my family and I participated in a long lived tradition of decorating cookies and this is what I wore.

I know that baking isn’t usually the right environment for leather and dresses, but to me this is casual. I mean take away the red lips and it’s just an all black look.  In fact, take away the belt and beanie and it’s a bad hair day and a moomoo.

If you’re wondering where I’m getting at, so am I.

So I guess I’ll just leave you with this; red lips and few accessories is never a bad idea.

  2. Haha! i love your thinking! I can never dress down either. I think it makes me more stressed out than dressing up. I only own one pair of tennis shoes and they are for the gym! LOL. I love the red lips and that dress makes you look so statuesque! Yes, go get those heels at Target! I may need to get the pink pair... :)
