Iv'e been a research workin' maniac! Today I start my "What I'm Wearing Today" blogs. Since I started blogging I have naturally started thinking about what I want to wear everyday. My morning routine consists of waking up around 7:40am... actually, I set my alarm for 7:06 am and I let it go off every 5 minutes until about 7:40ish...you can only imagine how much this annoys my boyfriend Sam... He just doesn't get it, those extra 35ish minutes are crucial to my half-awake shut-eye. ANYWHO... I wake up around 7:40, I pet Rosie for about 10 mins and comment on how adorable she is as she wakes up too, I look out my window to see what type of weather it is, sleepily walk downstairs, brew a few cups of coffee, rinse up, and start my look of the day...
My daily beauty routine is simple. I start by applying Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator- (LOVE it...look into it if you have acne scar issues), throw on a little bit of concealer to even out the color of my face (or to cover up those unbelievably, unwanted STUPID STUPID pimples), use a nude/shimmery beige; Bare Mineral eye shadow, and a touch of mascara. This simple routine opens my eyes, is quick, and does wonders by making it look like I'm not still kind-of sleeping.
As I am putting on my make up, I look at the reflection of my wardrobe on my clothing rack behind me. I peruse the possibilities. I wait for something to catch my eye. Something that amuses me. I see the same things on the rack every single day, but somehow I come across one peice of clothing; whether it be a cardigan, a tank, a dress, skirt, scarf... one piece stands out amongst ALL of the other garments and POOF! I come up up with that day's outfit in an instant. It's like magic. Today I was doing my usual- looking and looking, only through the mirror at what I could see from a far... and there it was. A sweatshirt hoodie dress I picked up at a near by consignment shop called Martha's Closet. It still had the $6.00 tag on it. It all came together- "with the dress, I could wear a pair of dark knit tights, my brown side zip leather boots, and my knit beige cardi... PERFECT! I threw my hair up in a tight messy bun, grabbed a pair of pastel green and pink earings, a yellow and brown ombre infinity scarf and voila! Below is the masterpiece.
(Try not to laugh really hard at my picture taking... I need a camera, but I also NEED to post pics for you guys! In time...in time... bare with me.)
Dress: Love on a Hanger (picked it up from Martha's Closet- Consignment shop on Martha's Vineyard.
Cardigan: The Loft
Tights: Christmas present from My Ma
THEN I WORE MY TWEED PETTICOAT!
I truly forget where I got this from and I don't know who it's by. I just know I picked it up at an outlet store in Clinton, CT.
So there you go... I promise these pictures will get better. I will try my hardest!!! Either way- I had fun getting this post together. I was inspired to write this post because I was happy and felt good about what I wore today... so I guess that's cool.
