A shirt dress, messy hair, and a touch of red.

Hi there friends and happy happy Friday! It is Mother’s day this weekend and I am excited. I get DUNKIN DONUTS! All hail the donut!  Mmmmm. Alrighty, enough of that. Today I want to talk about why I really love shirt dresses.  And I felt like wearing a bright red lip color. I am really liking the Loreal Infallible Pro-last lip color.

Shirt dresses have a place in my heart so profound that it is really something. Reason? They are an easy outfit. No fuss, no nonsense. Work or play it is a perfect item. And if you are in a hurry a shirt dress is pretty simple. Just throw on some shoes and get out of the door. I love these types of dresses. Even in the fall you can get by with a nice jacket with the dress.

I am needing to get more shirt dresses in other colors other than black. Believe me when I say these dresses are worth every penny. Every penny. I know I wear this a lot, but it is a great fall back dress.

My hair is in a bit of a mess too. I tried to put it up and gave up. My little one has been needing every ounce of my attention. He really requires it when mommy tries to put her hair up. But, that is OK.  I love it.  Although, I have ruined many a cat eye with him dangling off of my leg or my arm. Nothing screams “fantastic” like an face full of eyeliner and mascara. Or try contouring with a tiny person yanking on your brush. But, it’s OK. I have learned how to manage it. I love the silver buttons on this dress, I can get by with no jewelry because of that I feel. And to top off all my shirt dress fun is my awesome shoes I got from Justfab.

And days like today mean it is a many cup of coffee day. I need the caffeine and its yummy goodness.

These are an amazing dupe for Chanel’s longwear lip colour.  The color is more of a wine red than pictured. Still really pretty and definitely noticeable. It is drama, but if you like darker reds this one is for you. I like it. But I had to double up on my blush a bit. I look dead. This shade of red does that with my skin tone. It stays on really insanely well. Yes, that well. It stays put and you don’t get that awesome lip print on coffee cups or if you have to kiss a ouchie. Tiny child face planted off the slide today, good times.

And I am also using Lancôme Hypnose Drama mascara (my personal fave). And I can not wait for my hair to grow out more as it will be more “manageable” . Yeah, that sounds silly but true.
