    Always love a good color-block piece. They are so fun to style! Love this sweater, and I love how you styled it with those shades and the Mac Retro lipstick! I’ve been wanting to try those out. How do you like them?

      Hi Bryanna! So, it’s actually not the Mac Retro collection, but it’s the satin lipstick in the color: Retro. So confusing, I know. But I love it!! Thanks so much for stopping by and comments! OXOX
