With the cold temperatures outside, there's no better time for a perfect sweatshirt. You might be envisioning a sloppy, hooded version of this (which is fine of course; to each their own).But we naturally went for one that is a bit more pleasing to the eye. This feminine and colorful piece by Giambattista Valli gives a fun spin on mixing beauty and nature. Covered in glossy lips and oodles of little ladybugs, this top will instantly liven up your wardrobe. Keeping the look casual, we opted for Paige ultra skinnies, which are a staple for the denim lover. Adding a dose of shoe-charm is a pair of Manolo Blahnik crystal buckle flats. These beauties naturally take us back to the Carrie Bradshaw days, which make them all the more special. For our bag choice, this Lulu Guinness lipstick tote offers a hardy helping of glamour without making the ensemble too dressy. We kept jewelry in-tune with this particular theme and picked these ladybug studs, which will look just darling 'crawling' on your lobes. Polishing things off in the beauty department is a pouty red lip. This bold shade by Bobbi Brown is the perfect way to wrap up our chic and sassy outfit. Both known for bringing love and luck, the 'Lipstick & Ladybugs' presented are sure to add a little magic to your closet...and maybe even your life!
