New Lip Obsessesion







Top: Bo Beau | Jeans: DL 1961 | Wedges: Charles By Charles David | Purse (similar styles):  MCMMarc JacobsSalvatore Ferragamo |  Lip Color: Bare Minerals in Juju | Earrings (dup): Nadri |Bracelet: Blushes and Gold | Bracelet (similar style): Nadri | Middle Finger Ring (dup): Nadri 

I am not one to typically wear Bare Minerals but I wandered into their store the other day with my cousin because she needed to pick something up. The really nice sales lady started telling us about their new long wear matte lip colors and I fell in love. I own several of the matte stains and they are great and all (Anastasia is my fav), but they are so stinkin' drying that they are definitely not for everyday use. Bare Minerals' new line isn't a stain and definitely doesn't stay as long, but it is rich looking and stays plenty long enough for my liking. Their colors are more of a creamy matte which is so gorgeous and their line consists of a larger normal range of colors at the moment, instead of the overwhelming level of oh-so-bright or disgustingly-nude colors most brands have. On top of everything else I love about them, they wear evenly instead of having a hard line of stain left behind where some oily food may have destroyed your perfect lip (which gives you time to finish conversation and dinner without feeling like you need to run to the bathroom because you probably only have half a lip on).  I walked out of the store with Juju and it is what I have on in the pictures above.

This is such a perfect summer outfit. I love the neckline on this top and again with the embroidery!! Bo Beau has a thing with tassel ties at the neck and I totally approve. The cut of this top is perfect to either criss-cross your bra straps or wear a racer back bra. which is wonderful because as much as I love my sticky bras, they don't mix with a super hot day (hello sweaty mess). I paired this top with my favorite white jeans and a new pair of nude wedges. These wedges are super comfortable and I love the mix of cork and braided rope on the actual wedge. It is everything I love about summer all wrapped up into one shoe. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!!
