I feel like I'm always going from one place to the next. This has forced me to get really good at making slight tweaks to my outfits to make them appropriate for whatever outing, drinks, etc. I'm headed to. I wanted to share a little example of that here using my simple-yet-sophisticated Everlane button down silk shirt as the common thread. I just don't know if anything is as classic (for a reason--it's perfect and dreamy) as a fresh face with a sleek red lip, so I thought it would be fun to play with switching that look up a bit too:

Outfit 1 

Here I'm wearing an Everlane silk shirt unbuttoned and paired with the Generation G Glossier lipstick in Zip. I'm also in my Everlane black jeans and my Zara ankle boots. Totally swooning over the Generation G lipsticks. They are so moisturizing and have become my go-to lipstick choice when I need a little color in my day. I left my shirt unbuttoned for a laid back vibe.

Outfit 2 

Here I'm wearing the same silk shirt buttoned up with my NARS lip pencil in Red Square. On the bottom, I'm wearing my American Apparel trousers and the same ankle boots. The NARS lip pencil is a great addition for a dressier look because it feels more like a full commitment lipstick. Buttoning up my shirt added the perfect finishing touch to this more polished outfit.
