This is the outfit I wore on boxing day. I still wanted a bit of holiday cheer in my styling, so I went for a comfortable, casual combination featuring this gorgeously sparkly skirt I don't wear nearly enough. I'm wearing almost ALL of my wearable Christmas gifts here, so it's a damn Christmas miracle that all of it sort of goes together... OR DOES IT? I totally think it does. The red tartan pulls it all together with holiday merriment.
The earrings, the navy long sleeve and the Kate Moss for Rimmel London 05 lipstick were all gifts that I couldn't wait to wear (obviously) so wearing them was exactly what I did as soon as I got the chance. You might not know this about me, but I am a bit obsessed with casual cotton long sleeve shirts, so I was stoked to unwrap this one on Christmas eve.
The lipstick is a bit peculiar: I've seen swatches of the 05 on other people looking very pink, but it looks more like a soft, neutral watermelon red on yours truly. The smell and texture are truly amazing btw, so I would probably wear this with glee even if it looked like shit! I'll swatch it for you one of these days and get you some close ups.
Talking about make up: I'm totally obsessing over Sleek's True Color lipsticks and will probably be ordering some within the next few days. I've already decided I'm getting Amped, but for my second shade I'm torn between Papaya Punch, Heartbreaker and Pink Freeze. FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS
And that's a wrap, folks! Let's start getting ready for New Year's eve! I wish we did presents for New Year's as well :( MOAR PRESENTS
