maternity style: pink lips and paisley

things have been slowing down over here lately. my belly is getting huge and i’m having trouble staying on my feet, sitting, or doing any productive human things other than slowly preparing the house for the arrival of the baby. but this weekend, i did have an opportunity to get a little dolled up to celebrate my grandmother’s birthday with family. and of course, the one accessory (besides this epic minju kim for h&m collar) that really completes my looks and makes me feel fancy, is a nice bold lip color. i probably own at least 20 shades of red and pink and am pretty much always on the hunt for the new perfect color. so of course, i was very pleased to team up with refinery29 and maybelline new york to try a few samples of the new color elixir lip colors. it’s a super-saturated lip gloss that you can layer on for a bit of sheer tint or a major pop of color, and this pretty pink shade in ‘fuchsia flourish’ was a perfect compliment to my green and blue getup.

  1. What a unique collar! Loving how this dress is looking on you. I am so behind in reading your blog and totally had no idea that I missed so many. I hope your grandmother had a great birthday. You have that many lipsticks?? I have 4 shades. >.< I'm so dull.
