Date Day

dd_0Happy 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?dd_2dd_1dd_4dd_6dd_3dd_5Coat: Stylenanda, Sweater: Forever 21, Jeans: BDG, Shirt: abercrombie, Shoes: Deena & Ozzy, Bag: rag & bone

Hello Yellow

pmu_0Happy 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!pmu_2pmu_3pmu_5pmu_7pmu_8pmu_6Sweater/Shorts: Forever 21, Shirt: The Limited, Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hat: ASOS, Shoes: Jessica Simpson

From BB to CC

cccreamI’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.
