Another spring day in January!

IMG_1633They are saying it’s going to be in the 80s again today, so I took the opportunity to wear another short-sleeved shirt.  Still, I only get a few months each year to wear closed toed shoes, so I stuck with a pair of those.

I took a little time this morning and found a new way to tie the scarf.  It took a few tries, but here’s a close-up:

The site I found ( it on calls this a Fancy Braid, but it fits my goal.  Color around my neck, a nice pattern visible against the black, but not too heavy.  More like a thick necklace than anything else.

I also tried a new lipstick for the inside picture today; Sonia Kashuk Lip Crayon in Rosey Nude.  The packaging made it look a bit more brick red than it is looking on me, so I’m not sure if this is the best red for me.  We’ll see how well it lasts.  

What do you think of the red lip?  

Is that a good red lip or could there be a better shade out there for me?

If you wear red lipstick, which one?
