Black merino turtleneck from Ann Taylor, Gap Curvy Bootcut jeans, black city boots from Impo, silver cuff and white gold and diamond studs from the husband back when he was still a boyfriend (yes, I do own some delicate girly jewelry!).

Hair was washed, conditioned, a bit of Samy's Mucho Volume sprayed in, then blown straight with a round brush.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match foundation in C3, Smashbox Soft Lights in Tint on the apples of the cheeks, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in neutral – ivory on inner corners and at brow bone, khaki on the lid (though there was still some body Shop Slate shadow in the brush so it's a combo). Lashes curled and coated with DiorShow Unlimited mascara in Black. A line of black Ultra Liner from Maybelline on the top lash line. Lips is The Body Shop's lipcolor in Damson.

Sorry for the weird second picture, I was walking down the stairs and turned the corner and realized I didn't take a face shot. This was taken while walking to let the dog out, hence the weird expression.

And, NO CAVITIES! Though the dentist suggested I put a veneer on my right front tooth because it is recessed. I guess the veneer would make the teeth look more even. At this point, I am happy with my smile, and don't see the need. Perfect teeth scare me, and I am far from perfect. And you know what? ia m okay with that. I will consider it when I get older and my gums recede and I start looking very uneven.

  1. I have a cashmere blend cardigan from AT, and it has held up very well. I think the cashmere content is pretty low on it (10 or 15%), but it has hung on the back of my desk chair, been thrown in my car seat, worn out for drinks with the friends, basically EVERYTHING, and it still looks nice, and has retained it’s softness. I’d say buy away.

  2. I actually have hit a weightloss wall and haven’t lost in a bit. thanks for the compliment! Just doing regular yoga and qigong, walking as much as possible (stairs at work, parking away from buildings and stores), drinking almost only water and for the past couple of weeks have changed to a completely vegetarian diet. My husband is a vegetarian so it’s easier with cooking and grocery shopping and I have found that it makes it easier to make food decisions. However we will have to see how it goes come summer as that I am a Maryland girl and I do adore my crab feasts! πŸ™‚

    As for the Ann Taylor Cashmere Blend sweaters, I do not know. After my years working at Express and experiencing the pilling, shedding and how threadbare their silk/cashmere sweaters would get (and how customers said it was the same at other stores) I have personally shied away from cashmere blends. I only own one cashmere sweater and it’s from Target, and then my beloved cashmere pashmina from Nordstrom. Has anyone else reading experienced them? I have rarely found poor quality in AT.

  3. Even when dressed down, you still look tres chic!

    And you must spill the secrets to your weight loss! You are looking thinner every day and I’m so jealous!!!! : )

    Quick fashion ? for you: Do you know anything about the quality of Ann Taylor’s Cashmere Blend sweaters?

  4. Yeah, watching TV in hopes that something would be closed and I wouldn’t have to go to work. Nope… the snow was almost gone by time I headed out. πŸ™

  5. I was trying to figure out what in your house would say “Children’s Daycare” and then I realized it was the snow closings on the TV.

    Also, I really like this lipstick.
