Chance is like a picture, just take it

H&M denim shirt, Topshop leopard belt, Cotton + Candy midi skirt, Fossil cork heels, Banana Republic bag

I'm not really a lip color girl because I like to eat and not worry about reapplying or if it's somehow all over my face and/or teeth (the horror), but when it finally broke 70-degrees last Friday (first time since November.. called for a serious celebration), I had to break out my new favorite shade, this bright coral/orange from Stila called Outrageous. It was the perfect weather to end a workweek and kickoff Seattle Beer Week so we went to Tom Douglas' Brave Horse Tavern for pretzels (why are carbs so good) and pitchers all night long.

  9. I love the bright coloured lips and you look flawless in this outfit. I adore the airy maxi skirt! Wish I could pull it off, but I'm always afraid that I'll look shorter in it than I already am.

  17. I totally understand what you mean about not being a lip girl! I tried lipstick for the first time on my weekend and I was mortified that it got on my teeth (and my friend didn't even say anything!)
    This is a really adorable look though- love the easy midi with the fringe bag!

    I also saw you plan on coming to HK! Tania from T like Bubble Tea and I live here!
