Orange Crush

I am pretty sure the little kids at my work will not enjoy the avant garde nature of my orange lipstick today. I also suspect the high school girls will love it.
 Yellow "necklace" - Seoul Folk Flea Market in Korea
Orange necklace - Kohl's (a few years ago)
Oxford - thrifted J. Crew
Belt - thrifted
Jeans - Old Navy
Shoes - vintage via eBay (no brand)

The lipstick is Cover Girl Lip Perfection in "Temptation". It's a really pretty orangey-coppery color with just enough red that you don't look totally insane (orange lipstick can do that to a gal.)
I've never been one for make-up but lately it's been fun playing with lipsticks (so far just hot pink and red). I used to think I couldn't pull them off because of my hair, but now I realize that's just silly. I also bought a very purpley one, but I think I'll wait a few days to rock that one. I still never wear foundation, concealer, or eyeshadow, but maybe one day that will change too!

I love the whole outfit head to toe. I want jeans with rips but my teenage daughters told me I was too old...

That shade of lipstick looks great on you. It's very summery.

I love the color of your lipstick (as everyone else has said already), but especially love the necklaces!!! You look fab.

The lipstick is just lovely on you. It catches all the right light. Plus I love the juxtaposition of jeans and buttondown and the large necklaces.
