Yes, I am at work today.  Luckily most of my clients are government agencies so it has been a day of catching up on to-dos and being relaxed with the clock.

So relaxed, I went to Ann Taylor on my lunch break.  Didn't find anything I wanted but got a chance to take my picture for you folks while in the fitting room:

101209 146
Plum sweater from Ann Taylor Loft, black pants from New York & Company, David Tate city boots, green earrings from New York and Company and earrings from Treehouse.

My hair is desperately asking me for a trim and color touch-up.  I may go this week.  I actually broke down and trimmed my own bangs Saturday night before the bachelorette party and sort of regret it (of course).  This morning it wouldn't do curly and it wouldn't do straight.  It only wanted to do Sitck My Head OPut Window at 95 MPH or Kip Winger.
My makeup is Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, Estee Lauder Nutritious foundation, Cargo Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – the olive color on the lid.  Stila shadow in… some dark purple in crease and along lash line.  A Tarte mascara I got as a sample and Givenchy lipgloss in 04.
No pictures yet from this weekend.  For the bachelorette party I wore my black sleeveless wrap top from Ann Taylor, my black pants that I am wearing today, black patent shoes and lots of silver jewelery and a purple pashmina for the chill.  For the shower I wore my other pair of black pants, black city boots, black cami and my plum deep v-neck wrap sweater from Philosophy.

    Sorry Jackie Sanders… one time you mask a comment as an ad/link and I let it slide. Second time I consider it spam and delete.

    Okay, this outfit looks great on you! I hear you on the hair thing…I am in desperate need of cut and color myself but am trying to hold out as long as possible. I think the gray roots are winning the battle though!
