SUNDAY

Hat - Goorin Bros. | Shirt and Sandals - H&M | Lipstick - "Lady Danger" by MAC | Leather shorts - Rudsak | Bag - Eleven Thirty Shop
I haven't had a day off in over a week, I woke up a little hungover this morning, and I have a book I'm really excited to read, but can't right now, 'cause I'm at work—again. Despite all of these compaints, however, I can't even be in a bad mood when the weather's this beautiful. I'm not always the most chipper (my boyfriend will attest to that), but sunshine does wonders for even the crabbiest of humans.

I hope everyone's enjoying their day today, whatever you're doing.

HEAT WAVE


Looking cute while out and about  in 32 degrees is no easy feat. I commend women who can still wear a full face of makeup without it melting off of their skin. I, on the other hand, don't know a blush brush from a contour brush (aren't they the same? Is there even such a thing as a co tour brush?) so I've just had to live with upper-lip sweat and the like. 

I also have to applaude people who walk around outside in suits, but look like they're walking along an air-conditioned building. I never look cool (literally and figuratively) during the summer. I get kinda sweaty, I look irritated, and while I LOVE hot weather, it's really difficult to wear things other than shorts, tank tops, and sandals. 
Things get even trickier in office an environment, 'cause you have to look work appropriate. I've been really fortunate to work for creative offices where dresscodes are little more relaxed, but I still like to differentiate my day off attire from my work attire. 

I'm staring to wear more skirts and flowy trousers--anything that's as good as shorts without actually being shorts. I could also probably help myself out and wear lighter colours, but let's be realistic.

CAMPING

This is my first ever post featuring neither lipstick OR leather. What is this world coming to?!
So I went camping this past weekend. It was...interesting. Actually, I was almost certain it was going to be terrible. I'm not really an outdoors-y person, save for my love of the beach, so I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy sleeping in a tent surrounded by trees and grass. Fortunately, there was a river nearby that I made it a point to swim in every day that we were there.
 I finally got some leisurely reading done, and I even finished a whole book! All in all, it was a pretty good time. I may even do it again! We'll see.

RED

So I bought a new hat yesterday. Loving it so much I had to create a .gif of myself, apparently.

Hat - Forever21 | Lipstick - "Russian Red" by MAC | Dress - H&M
While I have a set number of jewellery that I wear everyday and never really take off, I don't often accessorize on top of that, so I always forget about the impact one great accessory can make on an outfit.

I wore this outfit just the other day, and while I'm still into the sans chapeau version, it (in my opinion) looks so much cooler now, with the addition of ONE accessory. And for all of you people who think you can't wear hats—I will tell you the same thing I tell people who tell me they can't wear red lipstick 'cause it doesn't suit them: There is a red lipstick shade hat for everyone. You just have to find it. If you're unsure about what shade style will suit you, go to a proper makeup store hat store and ask someone who knows what they're doing. 

Trust me, and thank me later.

CAMOUFLAGE

I tried another all white outfit today, and about half an hour into wearing it, I got avocado from my my breakfast on my shirt. Fortunately, I took these photos before that disaster.

In all honesty, the stains aren't even that visible—I'm just being dramatic.

Also, let's all acknowledge and laugh (it's okay) at how my non-tan and outfit blend into this white door I'm standing in front of.
