Happy Monday and St. Patrick’s Day! There’s a bit of back log so here is today’s post from a few days ago. Davy and I finally got to have a date day. Nothing fancy, just your run of the mill spending time together; running errands, eating pizza, getting coffee, dragging Davy around while I shop. We didn’t get to do this all winter long because of my weird work schedule and my ongoing diet. I went with shades of gray and blue this day; it’s still really cold here and I wanted to be able walk around and shop without my feet hurting. Technically, this is a very unisex ensemble. A guy can even pull this off (minus the heeled boots and necklace). My boots are from a recent Urban Outfitter’s loot, I’m breaking them in right now, but they’re comfortable enough to wear for work. And I can’t get enough of this Stylenanda coat. Davy calls it my hobo coat because of the oversize fit, but I love it. What do you think of the oversize fit?Coat: Stylenanda, Sweater: Forever 21, Jeans: BDG, Shirt: abercrombie, Shoes: Deena & Ozzy, Bag: rag & bone
Happy Friday! We Chicagoans are so so ready for spring. We are all ready to see this winter leave already. No more cold, snow, or the dreariness. I picked a bright yellow sweater to just elevate my mood; it’s difficult to be chipper all the time when your environment doesn’t cooperate. Sometimes it’s just easy to be glum. But that would mean I’d be glum for at least 3-4 months out of the year and I don’t want that. We have a few spring like days interlaced with the cold spells so I got to bring out the shorts (with tights of course!). I accessorized simply with a silver/turquoise Southwest style plated necklace. I think yellow and that sky blue color go so well together; reminds me of pretty birds. Speaking of birds, I can’t wait to hear them chirp in the morning. I can’t wait to go bare legged, wear sandals, feel the sun and warm breeze. I just can’t wait til it hits 60 degrees! That will be a monumental feat for Chicago!Sweater/Shorts: Forever 21, Shirt: The Limited, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hat: ASOS, Shoes: Jessica Simpson
I’ve been using my Garnier BB creams for a while now but I received a small sample of this smashbox cc cream from a recent Sephora binge, and I used it for a few days. And I have become a convert. It’s pricier at $39 a tube and it is smaller. However the coverage is amazing and you really need to use a little, so I think the 1 oz. tube will last for while. It does everything a BB cream does but as a CC cream, it takes it to another level and corrects/fades flaws and spots. If you’re not ready to commit to a $40 tube, theres a travel size at .5 oz for $20 available at Sephora! Try it and you may covert too.
