Sometimes all you need to jazz up neutral outfit is a really good lip color. I am completely hooked on Nars Lip Crayons, and the beauty product whore in me is on a mission to acquire one in every color. It would be sort of like a Crayola Big Box (OMG, remember those), for the makeup obsessed.

For more lips, liner, hair, etc. follow my beauty board on Pinterest! ♥

    I have the same obsession! I lovvvve Nars’ lip crayon — recently bought it in Mexican Rose but need more!! Your color might be my next choice.

    PS have the same dress (love that it was from F21) and I love how you styled it with so many different patterns! xo

    I love how all the textures and patterns in this outfit are working together so well! And the lip is gorgeous.

    Fabulous look! Can you please tell me the model of those SEE sunglasses?

    Laura Reply:

    Thank you!! I am searching on the SEE website and unfortunately not seeing them. I purchased a couple years back — they have many amazing styles though! :)

    Mrs Smith Reply:

    Is there a model number on one of the arms? Sorry to stalk, they’re just so good! Thanks!

    That’s it – the perfect lip color! I swear I’ve been looking for that color for ages and it’s never seemed right, but I LOVE this one.

    And at Nordstrom, I can use my points! Perfect.

    SO SO SO chic. You make me want to reach into my closet and pull out all my polka-dots and wear them again! So inspirational!


    Laura Reply:

    Thank you, Grace! And you should!! There is something so happy/fun about wearing polka dots. :)

    The dress is absolutely darling! And adore the feline shades.

  30. Michelle 19. Aug, 2012 at 8:41 pm #

    Oh my gosh, I am a sucker for cute tote bags. It’s my favorite type of bag since all I have to do is just throw my essentials in it and I’m good to go. I love the graphics on it!

  31. Katie 19. Aug, 2012 at 8:11 pm #

    Laura, you are stunning in these photos!! Those lips are killer! I’m dying to try out a darker lip for fall so I can’t wait to check out the NARS lip crayons!

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks so much, Katie! You are too sweet. :) Definitely try our the Nars Crayons – I also love “Damned” if you are looking for an even darker shade.
