My stripey outfit of the day.

Hi there my friends! What happy happy no sleep was had last night Tuesday! I am on my second or third cup of coffee. Today I was determined to get dressed and moving around. I was not going to let a lack of sleep get me down. I decided to wear my favorite striped dress from White House/Black Market. And I figured it would look great with red heels and a bright bag. YES! Little did I know that today was not a good day to try for the “nude” lip look. Being as pale as I am I looked more tired than I already was. Hurray MOTHERHOOD.  I should have wore more color there, because all the contouring and blush in the world can not help that washed out/ lack of sleep look.


So, I put my sunglasses on to hide the zombie look. I probably feel worse than I look. It seems to happen that way.


See, nude lips were not the way for me. I need to accept that fact and move on. I need color. This vampire needs color on the lips.



The weather is really muggy today and this dress is really well lined.  But, I just love this dress and the fit. It can be casual or dressy and that is one of the best things about it. Even if it is heavy I still wear it in the heat. It is a dress!



And my new MANGO bag is making another appearance. God do I love this bag!! I really do! You can see another post of it here .
