First off, thank you for all the incredible feedback on my packing post the other day–I have ordered things, have new ideas and changed half my list, so stay tuned for an update once I receive things, try them out etc. Second, I don’t gravitate to many colors, but orange and red (and especially an orangey-red) are my favorite colors and as I’ve been scrolling around on my phone I found some fun (and all mostly affordable) pops of color that I ordered, have my eye on, or just love.
First, there is a trio of new limited edition Hermes lipsticks with fun, summery packaging by Pierre Hardy. I am drawn to the Brun Yachting shade (odd name), but there is also a nice coral and a neutral. I do love a good coral in summer so maybe I need both (I already have a good Hermes neutral, Beige Kalahari). Then, because I started rethinking everything I’m taking to Ireland (I realized how little I have in the way of “performance” clothing), I ordered this unisex UV protection jacket from Uniqlo as a layering piece that will also come in handy once it warms up. Along those lines, my younger daughter swears by these Patagonia shorts and now they come in coral, so not yet, but maybe soon–for warm weather hiking. On a splurgier side, this The Row mini envelope would be a great pop against summers khakis and whites as well as this Hot Lips by Solange ring. Maybe you just want to dream of summer vacation (I am) with this book, or smell like summer with a fresh spritz. Sometimes all it takes is a new pop of lipstick to brighten your mood (which is why the beauty industry is so big, but it’s true).
