WIWW: Chill-Out(fit) & Mongo Kiss

This is my new favorite chill-out outfit, a chill-out(fit), if you will. It's got a combination of supersimple pieces that are comfy, easy-to-wash, don't wrinkle, and still look kinda hip.

The perfect outfit for drinking coffee on the stoop with a cat.

Hair: Thank you humidity! // Earrings: Fabulous string earrings sold by NYC Subway vendor (via Mom) // Cubic Zirconia Necklace: Dahlia Kanner Studio // Silver Bracelet: 70s hippie vintage (via Mom) // Top: Urban Outfitter's label (via Anne S.)  // Skirt: Alternative Apparel (via Liz) //  Leggings: random discount store // Shoes: Bass // Coffee Mug: Vintage via Fishs Eddy

Mongo Kiss: I love it, but the cat isn't a fan. Whatever, she doesn't have lips anyhow!

Also wanna tell you about my new lip balm: Mongo Kiss in peppermint by EcoLips. It was a total impulse buy at the Whole Foods Market check out line, but I love it. It's fair trade, made with organic ingredients, and has no fragrances or flavors added besides essential oil. Plus it's made with mongongo oil from Zambia, which I never heard of before but can tell you from experience that it's very, very moisturizing without feeling waxy or oily. Mongo Kiss does, however, have beeswax so it's not vegan. (Eco Lips does make vegan lip balms though.)

Wanna try Mongo Kiss and try your luck? There's a giveaway for a one year supply on the Eco Lips facebook page now through Monday, May 27.

Note: Eco Lips didn't solicit me to write this or provide a free sample. Mongo Kiss is just the best quality and most ethical $2 lip balm I've ever used, so I felt compelled to tell you guys about it.

  2. Your hair!! WOW, love it!

    I can totally see you running around NYC, chic and comfy in this look.

  3. Hey Olivia, I usually end up with an organic chocolate bar while waiting in the check-out line at Whole Foods. Eco lip balms sound so much healthier, and probably cheaper, LOL.

    You look fresh in your outfit today. Very cute! Great shoes. And your kitty is so cute.
