It’s amazing what a swipe of scarlet lippy does for your self esteem. You might not notice it – but I was feeling all kinds of unwell when we snapped these photos! After simultaneously coming down with a cold, stomach bug, and a headache like no other (ahh, the joys of working in childcare – catching every darn sickness available!) I was fed up with living in bed – particularly as the weather was SO HOT that it felt more like a punishment than a sanctuary – so headed out in bright red to find a spot to have lunch.

I hate going out looking sick – I always seem to bump into every single person I know – so piled on the makeup – lipstick included of course, and kept the red theme going with this scalloped dress by Chicwish and a vintage beret. Mustard/ketchup (colour) combos have been my favourite thing for a long time now, so I threw my new Jo Totes camera bag into the mix of things. I may have only felt like a couple of dollars, but when your special guy tells you that you look like a million bucks, it sure helps you feel better!

    • Thank you! Feeling a zillion times better but now I’ve passed the bug over to my boyfriend.. whoops! xo

  1. You look lovely! Feeling sick and going out isn’t always the best feeling, but I bet know one could tell – you look fabulous all in red and I love that scalloped dress!

  2. You don’t look sick here at all! It’s amazing what some red lipstick can do. I tend to throw on bright lip colors when I don’t feel good too. They brighten up anybody’s face! You look gorgeous in this all red outfit too. And I’m loving that yellow bag. I have the same camera bag in brown.

  3. You are such a pretty picture! You’ve reminded me that I too have a red vintage beret. I’m going to dig it out and wear it tomorrow :)


  4. Gosh, this is such a pretty outfit! I’m not bold enough to don the head-to-toe red look, but you pull it off so well. Hope you’re feeling better soon, by the way :)
