Picture 0012Picture 0031Happy birthday to me! Of course I woke up to the lovely monthly occurrence and also the cold my husband had last week. No worries, it's a sunny day and I had a relaxing weekend. However I am going to dress in the work-appropriate version of pajamas.

Black merino shift from Banana Republic, black heavy tights from Target with the feet cut off, black flats from Naturalizer, silver necklaces from H&M, diamond studs from Diamond Nexus Labs. At work I left on my orange crinkle scarf from Banana Republic because I was cold.

Hair was washed and conditioned, a bit of Got2B curling mousse added while damp and dried with a diffuser. Hit the super frizzy parts with a curling iron.

Makeup is Smashbox Photo Finish primer, L'Oreal True Match concealer in W1-3, philosophy The Supernatural in Beige, Cargo Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – ivory in inner corners, khaki on lid, chocolate in crease and along lash lines. Lashes curled, coat of Cover Girl Lash Blast in black with Imju Fiberwig over it. Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Strawberry Fizz and a dusting of Smashbox Soft Lights in Tint on cheekbones.

Busy day at work, but plan to have a nice romantic dinner with my husband this evening!

  2. they are super thick, almost more like leggings so they didn’t run or anything when cut off. They were so thick, they didn’t stretch much and by lunchtime with the feet still attached I would be wearing thigh-highs. 🙂 They needed to be donated or cut… cut they get far more wear!
