Summertime Lip Color

Summer has officially arrived in Zurich and it is HOT!  But with the summer heat also comes fun summer fashion.  Because I am still trying to get back my pre-baby body, I am focusing my summer fashion on lip color rather than clothing.

Thank goodness for my brother’s girlfriend, Amy!  She helps keep me up-to-date on the latest and greatest.  She first introduced me to Colourpop and now to Kylie Cosmetics.  While I am not a Kardashian fan, I am a fan of a bright lip that stays all day.  Kylie delivers.

Specifically, I am loving, or I should say, am “in love” with, the In Love with KoKo line.  The order includes 3 matte colors and 1 gloss.

Ever since I have received the order, I have been wearing these lip colors.  Right now I am gravitating most towards “Doll*” and “Baby Girl*”.

*I feel weird typing those names, they are so silly

Doll goes especially well with a lot of my outfits, as I wear bright colors like orange quite often.   Either way, I love how they look and feel, and I always feel prettier after I’ve put them on.

If these colors don’t suit you, Kylie Cosmetics still has plenty of other options.  Wishing you a fun summer lip!

What the Missus Wore in Salzburg

It’s officially summer in Europe, so when packing for Salzburg, I was excited to wear some of my newer outfits and old favorites.  We were also going to be doing a lot of walking and bike riding, so I needed to make sure to pack the most appropriate attire that would also double for going out after the fact.

For day 1, I broke out my favorite new dress from ModCloth.  It was appropriate for riding a bike, and my new Seychelles sandals were comfortable for walking and provided a fun pop of color to accent the dress.

The next day was hotter than the previous and I was thankful I had brought a sleeveless top and bright skirt.  The blue sandals also matched my skirt well and kept up with a summer time vibe while remaining comfortable for walking in.
