"Lipstick on your collar

Told a tale on you...!"

No, not the 1959 hit by Connie Francis (above), but the Lip Print shirt from Simply Be:

Which was just the right amount of whimsy and bold print - perfect for the office!

Queue a dull Thursday, when the shirt made it's first outing!

I sized up to a 24, anticipating the need for bust room - I was right - I even needed to use an earring to pin the gape shut! 

What I hadn't anticipated was the material. With it being polyester, it moved - A LOT - which meant as I wore it tucked into my skirt, I was constantly adjusting it at the waist, as well as the bust. 

When I next wear this, and there will be a next time, I'll be wearing a cotton tee shirt underneath to see if that eases the sliding! 

Styling wise, I pinned my fringe back in a mini curl, in a homage to a victory roll. Bright pink lips were a must, and it was a no brainer that I would be adding my Collectif Liesel Skirt:

With brogue for a little land girl feel - and for all the draw backs of the shirt, the plus points of the print make it more than worth it!

Much love my lovelies,
