Alison 205Alison 207Ice storm warning, Federal government open two hours late yet I still need to get to work on time. I was hoping to be prepared after the night prior where I slipped all over in my high-heeled boots and froze my fingers and wrists and neck off while trying to dig my car out of a Magic Shell of ice at the Metro parking lot. No real need, Wednesday was warmer than Tuesday night – nary an icicle on my car!

Black silk/linen/tencel tee from Banana Republic, cream hooded cable cardigan from Express, patch-pocket cotton bootcut jeans from Gap Outlet, my tan “Bern” boots. I really don't own winter boots… these are my go-tos for icky weather and I just couldn't put on another dress today. I feel as though over jeans they look a bit like prosthetic legs, but it got me to work dry and warm.

Hair was washed and conditioned, and then I used my new wet-to-dry straightener to dry and smooth. Not as quick as the dryer and brush, but far smoother results and no bathroom smelling like burned hair. No products used.

Makeup is Revlon ColorStay under eye concealer in Light Medium, philosophy The Supernatural in Beige, Cargo Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – the khaki on the lid. Body Shop's eye color in Soft Black in crease and along lash lines. I then used my chubby Sephora eye pencil in gray along the lash lines to enhance the smoky look. Lashes curled, coat of Benefit's Bad Gal Lash and then a coat of Imju Fiberwig. On lips is Revlon Super Lustrous lip gloss in Glossy Rose.

    I’m loving checking out your page every day. I love the sweater with the jeans and your look for Valentine’s Day.

    Do you remember meeting Mike’s mom? That’s me!

    Keep it coming!

    Haha you said Ugh!

    The Berns aren’t bad… not made for them though. However it’s a sturdy rubber sole, solid toebox and waterproofed leather so they are good for trekking through slush and the semi-flat sole makes it a bit safer on the slippery spots.

    How are the Bern boots on the ice? Ugh’s suck on ice.
    Happy Valentine’s day, Allie!!
