Happy Friday! This week flew by in a flash, and just like most weeks, I feel like all I accomplished was working and blogging. If you could only see my desk right now. Eek. I’d actually be embarrassed, so I’m glad you can’t. 😉 Some things fall low on the priority list these days, since it’s extremely time consuming to blog while working 3 days a week as well (and be a toddler mom, not to mention a potty-training toddler). It means many late nights (writing this post at 11:15pm), and lots of cleaning left undone. But the truth is, I have goals, and those goals aren’t going to reach themselves, ya know? So until then, I’m gonna werk, werk, werk, werk, werk.
I wore this black off shoulder top last week for a friend’s birthday dinner. We went to a Mexican restaurant, and something about ruffle off-the-shoulder tops make me think Spanish or Latin. They have that “flamenco” feel I guess. This top is actually a lightweight sweater material, and seriously the comfiest off-the-shoulder top I’ve ever owned. I also have the striped version (which I’m even more obsessed with). You can see it on my Instagram page (@lipglossandlabels). I’ll be wearing both of them ALL summer long. I’m in the XXS, which is my normal size at J. Crew. I don’t usually gravitate toward black in the summer, but this top is just THAT good. I made it a little more ‘summer-friendly’ by adding a bright pink lip. This lipstick is a current fave! You can read more about it in this beauty post.
I hope you have a great day, and an even better weekend! We are heading to the beach Sunday, and I can’t wait! (P.S. still no bathing suit.)
Thanks so much for reading!
