Who Needs Coffee When You Have Lipstick

Do you ever wake up and seriously consider just turning off the alarm and going back to bed? That's how I felt on this particular morning. I just felt so tired from the week and waking up to a grey smog didn't really help. I live on the 22nd floor and the balcony goes off my bedroom so I always have an idea of the weather from the second I open my eyes. All I saw this morning was grey. Of course I dragged myself out of bed, threw together this outfit and put on some lipstick. Just like that, I was magically awake and somewhat energized. It's magical how clothes and makeup can wake me up sometimes. 

The day did turn around completely and it was actually hot and sunny by 4 pm. How funny the weather is here. I just recently thrifted this over sized denim shirt, basket bag, and 90s minimal sandals. I just love them. They can get uncomfortable after a full day but they're just fine for a few hours. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect sandal and really love these but ordering online always turns out in disaster for me. I'm hoping to find them either at the Zara or H&M here or when I go to England this summer in the shops there.
