It's raining, it's pouring… you know you're a blogaholic when you stand in the rain for your outfit photos! And you know your husband loves you when he stands in the rain to take your blog photos!

I have to give my 50,000th shout-out to the Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis. If I could never buy another eye shadow again, I would be okay if I had this palette. A matte ivory for highlighting, a golden khaki that is a great warm neutral for lids, a deep chocolate for contouring (or use wet as a liner), and then an olive. I buy olive colored clothing just so I can get all matchy-matchy and wear an olive smokey eye with this shadow. Oh, and the color really DOES stay. I will be heading home with just as smokey of an olive eye as I did leaving the house today. Fabulous!

    That cargo jacket is awesome and I love the pop of color at your neck!

    Isn’t that stuff amazing? I find if I keep reapplying a balm over it (yesterday it was Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in Hibiscus), the color stays even richer and the lips look soft. Amazed that I didn’t have to slough off my entire lip to get it off at night, just a swipe of a Neutrogena cleansing wipe! And this shadow quad is THE BOMB, I also have a gray/navy combo that I like too, but the colors aren’t quite as versatile.

    Yes – I use either Burt Bees or Softlips to keep it moisturized instead of slicking on more of the gloss overlay. I ended up getting a different quad – I really like the staying power, so I think that I’m going to go back and get the khaki as well.

    Eh, mine are at that same stage, they were just playing nice that morning. So not sure what to do with these bangs!

    You look so beautiful in that first photo! It looks like an advertisement.

    This is my favourite of your outfits over the last couple of days.  Also (and this will sound really random, but) you can really see in your legs that you’ve lost weight.  Looks great!

    Love the red. Your bangs have grown out very nicely. Mine are in that horrible in-between stage where I can’t decide if I let them grow or chop them again.
    E is rocking that tee! She has such a cool vibe already.

    Awesome jacket! So into army green. That will work with so many outfits.

  9. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    Love this outfit! And wanted to say that I bought the revlon colorstay eye shadow a few years ago per your recommendations and I am still using and buying it! I wore an olive smoky eye today too!

    Fantastic!  You just gave me an idea for an outfit!!  Thanks!

  11. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    Your daughter is the coolest chick on here. Even I don’t have a 9:30 club t-shirt and I’ve seen shows there when 9:30 club was on F Street. 🙂  Anyway, I have a similar jacket and now I know what I can wear it with.  Thanks!!

  12. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    Marvelous, darling! And great minds think alike – I’m in my olive jacket today, too. Must be something in the air …

  13. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    LOL I LOVED the old 9:30! And I too don’t have a shirt… though now I want one myself!

    I love the jacket but the link just takes me to the Kohl’s front page! 🙁

  16. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    The style and fit of that jacket is just perfect and I love the combo of coral red next to the army green!

    I love that color jacket on you and on me, and probably on the whole wide world. Your daughter is too adorable  : >

  18. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    Thank you! As for my mini rocker chick, I just need to get a picture where she’s smiling. Harder than you would think from such a happy girl!

  19. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    I love this outfit – the skirt is great and the pop of color is a lovely accent to the denim and olive.

    Your mini rocker chick is adorable.

  20. December 6, 2011 / 12:41 am

    Thank you! I haven’t worn this necklace in a long while, it deserved to see the light of day!

    I will definitely be trying the eyeshadow – I have to thank you profusely for recommending the Colorstay Overtime lip color. It stayed on through lunch and dinner and an apple – there was still enough color staining my lips at 9:30 last night that I had to remove it with make-up remover. AND my lips didn’t feel dry, gross, and flaky. This stuff is awesome! And on sale this week at Walgreen’s!

    You both look fabulous, sweetheart!
