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!
