This morning on Twitter I said I wouldn't be posting pictures… but then I figured I can at least I can capture a crack-of-dawn shot in my office bathroom! By the way, never noticed the little flower details on the tiles in the bathroom before… I work in a very old building in DC – we still have elevator operators! Well the bathrooms look as though they had a makeover… in 1978. Ah well, they are clean!
So today I dressed in the dark – I left the house at 5:30am and didn't want to wake a single husband, baby, or dog.
Black ponte Jacket – Banana Republic Outlet
White tank – Caslon
Dark straight jeans – NYDJ
Oversized scarf – H&M
Pearl necklaces (two different ones) – Nordstrom
Gold Necklace – J. Crew
I let my hair air dry this morning and it didn't look happy when I got to work so I threw it up with an elastic. Makes me wish I wore earrings!
And this morning, I was THAT WOMAN, the person who puts her makeup on while riding the subway! I KNOW! But really with dressing in the dark and wet hair, I couldn't wait until I got to work to do my face. And at that time of morning, the train is pretty empty until we get into DC proper. But a plus side… you get to see the contents of today's makeup bag!
Yeah, this is an honest picture. I love when I see people's shiny new cosmetic bags with perfect new looking cosmetics inside. This is a bag I got with a gift set from Tarte. The gold-handled brushes are Trish McEvoy, which I have had for well over a decade. The black handled one is from Bare Escentuals and is my fave bronzer brush because it gives such a light fluff of coverage. The gray handled brush is from Sephora and was part of a Smokey Eye kit.
Today it's the Max Factor Pan-Stik, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, Tarte bronzer, Nars blush, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad, Cargo lipstick, DiorShow mascara, Shu Eumura lash curler.
I just headed to the bathroom and decided to take off the scarf – it's so warm out, I feel too wintry and the outfit is still very cute without it, now you can see the fun necklaces!
