Then the opportunity arose to join my S.O. to meet with friends, both of whom had been on a road trip for over 8-weeks. How could I say no to stories of Wyoming's landscape and the homes in Minneapolis and Vonnegut-style-wanderlust-inducing images of the piping hot hood of a car with miles of road ahead? A quick outfit change, a swipe of Ruby Woo, and a few minutes later, I was out the door.
I've basically been looking for any excuse to wear this sweater, despite the fact that it, too, has been highly weather inappropriate. Mostly, it has been paraded within the confines of my apartment (there's that Central AC, again), but a quick neighborhood jaunt as the sun wound down seemed a good enough excuse. Staying with my obsession of all things lip and lipstick print (that's femme realness, for you), I put together a wishlist of other smooch-worthy goods.
1. Markus Lupfer Printed Cotton T-Shirt, $145. 2. Stila All Day Liquid Color, $22. Dries matte, literally stays all day, and is the closest thing to "kiss proof" that I have ever found. 3. Lips Flask, $24. 4. Charlotte Olympia Bisoux Leopard Toe Flats, $695. Be still my heart. Currently the number 1 shoe on my list for fall. 5. Smooch Lip Frame Glasses, $2.99. 6. Marc by Marc Jacobs Phone Case, $34. 7. Sonia Rykiel Embellished Jersey T-Shirt, $275. 8. Lulu Guinness Perspex Clutch, $394. Yes, yes; this again. It's one of the items on my "forever" wishlist. 9. Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations Lips Journal, $12.95.
Psst, if you're craving that lips sweater, run - don't walk. ASOS has 20% off now with the code "NEW20".
