New pants!  These were originally $110 but on sale for $49.50 at Ann Taylor.  They are charcoal with a gray faint stripe on them and the sort of fabric that can be worn year-round.  Nice flat waist with a tab waistband so it doesn't dig, it doesn't roll, it doesn't highlight a muffin top.  Hurrah.  With it is my orange cotton scoopneck sweater from Lands End, a necklace from New York and Company (I removed superflous chains to make the necklace more simple/expensive looking), black city boots from David Tate, silver hoops and cuff.

My hair was washed and conditioned the night prior.  I was going to take a shower, but the shower is next to Emerson's room and she has been a light sleeper lately.  I opened the door to the linen closet to get a towel and I heard her squeak in her sleep.  Our master bathroom has a leak when we use the shower and well… we just haven't had time to figure it out (we think it just needs a recaulking).  So I washed my hair under the faucet of the master bathtub, and then the body in a bath.  The humidity of the bath always affects the final look of my hair when I air dry.  I added some Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls, scrunched and went to bed. 
Come AM, it was a bit strange in places and lovely in others so I used the curling iron on the bad parts.  Sort of beachy casual…
Makeup is Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation and lipstick in Wild Ginger and shadow in… some colors from a gift with purchase palette, Nars blush in Orgasm, Body Shop shadow in Soft Black used as liner, Tarte Lash Hugger mascara.  Yep, I have switched to my winter color of foundation.  The Nutritious foundation is Intensity 3.0 which is a bit dark now for my sun-starved skin!

    looking good! fyi: we just moved Jane to a new room that is closer to the squeaky stairs and bathroom, and found a white noise machine that is helping a lot.
