August 025August 027So I set my alarm… but due to a power failure on Friday I had to reset it an of course accidentally set it for PM, not AM. Thank goodness I have a dog with an amazing body clock. He somehow got the blanket off the bed and made a nice little nest on the floor so even HE overslept, not pacing and whining until 7:15 (I leave for work at 8:00 and usually wake more like 6-6:30).

It's not easy fitting a quick dog walk, feeding, personal feeding, shower, dressing and packing of lunch into 45 minutes. I was glad I had done all my laundry this weekend so I had something to choose from, eliminating several minutes of trying to be creative. And yes, I have tried laying out my outfit the night prior but it doesn't work for me. I may go to bed a conservative and wake an artsy free spirit. I always switch out what I planned so it ends up being a waste of time and a stressful way for me to end the day. Far more enjoyable to fling open the closet int he morning and plan the day, then to have it lain out like soldiers at the ready the night before, watching me sleep. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hair is second day, just brushed out a bit. It's getting cut and colored tonight so I didn't care too much how it looked this morning.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match concealer in W4-5, Benefit's That Gal on cheekbones, philosophy's The Supernatural Airbrushed Canvas in Beige, Cargo Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – the khaki over the lid.

  1. It’s funny how different people work–I almost always decide the night before what I’m going to wear the next day. Otherwise I’ll spend ten minutes just staring at my dresser drawers in a sleep-deprived haze. Granted, I’m just going to class, not work, but I find I look more put-together if I don’t pick out my clothes in the morning.

    The new design is really cute, by the way.

  2. I think your hair and makeup look fantastic today! Wouldn’t you know it – hair always looks great right before a scheduled cut!
