It's been a "man up" sort of week. Would you prefer if I said "woman up"?
Woman up it is.
The work has been hard, the calendar has been full, the inbox -for heaven's sake the inbox- hasn't seen unread drop below 80. And so, the outfits have been easy. Hair up, boots on, and a red lip when I can manage.
I normally shy away from a bold lip. Too high maintenance. Who has the time? I always associate a red lip with unachievable, not-a-hair-out-of-place perfection. Which is why its so shocking that I swiped it on, on a Monday.
It was a heck of a day, and I wasn't done yet. The red felt daring - a little scary - like I needed it to keep me on my toes a while longer. And it sort of did! I sort of sailed through the night -and the grocery store. And then I poured some red wine, you know, to match my lips.
