China Pattern











Outfit Details: 
dress: via Piperlime
sunglasses: Asos
shoes: Talbots

Anytime I see blue and white paired together in a floral pattern, I think of a china pattern. A bunch of years back I was out thrift shopping and I came across this full gorgeous set of bone china that was white with a beautiful blue toile pattern on it. I kick myself every time I think of it and wish I had just gotten it!

Well at least I have this dress! It is such a comfortable and easy piece to toss on! I chose to wear my low nude sandals (typical I know) to keep it chic, but casual. I am going to style this outfit for a evening of hitting the town so stay tuned!!

New Hair

Before: 






Check out those roots!! I am so glad my hair is put together now! 


After:




It was time. I absolutely loved the red hair, but the constant touching up of roots to keep it looking on point was starting to get tiring. So I made an appointment with Raquel to do something new. This new color and highlights will blend with my roots so much better and be lightened by the summer rays without turning orange. I am so excited and feel totally revived again! 

I felt as if I was putting my hair on pause for a few months, and I just felt stuck. Finally I feel put together and refined and can't wait to keep showing it off on Lipstick & Chiffon. Here is to new things happening this year! 

What do you guys think of the new hair?!

Spring Pairings










Outfit Details:
top: Thrifted
skirt: Thrifted through ThredUp
shoes: Aldo
purse: Thrifted
bracelet: vintage
sunglasses: Asos

I got this skirt from ThredUp last summer and brought it out again this Spring. It is such a light-weight material and so extremely comfortable, perfect for the climbing temperatures. The top I paired with it is a loosey goosey crop to let the breeze in. 

I thrifted this crop from a cute thrift store in Warrenton on a shopping trip with my mom and sister. I wore it so much immediately, because it is such a soft material and can camouflage any bulging areas. The great thing about these two pieces is that they can transition together or separately into the Summer as well and can be casual or dressed up for a night out!

Here is a little update on me: Yesterday I got my hair updated!!! Stay tuned for some photos on my social media to see what I changed it to!

Makeup Tutorial: Soft Spring Look











Products Used:


Pop beauty palette via Birchbox - from the Naturally Bare Palette
Voodoo eyeliner (similar) from Urban Decay


Check out the video to see how to recreate this look on yourself!



I feel as if we have been cheated of a full Spring, granted these past two days have been perfect, but where are my months of this weather? The Summer has descended upon us quite quickly, I don't know if I am ready for it yet. So I created this Spring look, which can also transition into a Summer look because of the warm tones in it, to help me to prepare for this fast transition into shorts and sandals.

Do you feel as if Spring was only here for a week? What were your favorite colors to wear this Spring?
