I’m probably the only girl in the world who feels this way,
But sometime between the age I was old enough to wear makeup and now, I got this idea in my head that I can’t wear lipstick unless I look like:
I know, I know, girls wear lipstick all the time no matter how casual. And they look gorgeous! I love dressing up a little extra now and then too. But for some reason, I just can’t get myself to put on the dang lipstick. I feel like I look like I’m trying too hard.
However, it does make me feel pretty. It’s just a little lip color right? So I thought, why am I not doing this more often?
One of my favorite blogs everydayinadress.com was my inspiration. She has taken to wearing a dress every day since last February, simply because it makes her feel gorgeous. She is coming up on her 365th day of feeling as amazing as she looks and owning her own style, blogging each day about the little things.
Why am I not taking her advice? Why not feel gorgeous every day? So, I’m taking baby steps. Starting by adding a little bit more lipstick into my fashion. Not everyday, but a little more often. In honor of the first day back to class tomorrow, I will be applying some ruby red. Everyone will drag into class wearing whatever they scraped out of the bottom of their laundry basket.
But I will be feeling like a million bucks.
