It’s been a hectic week. Productive, but I can’t seem to get ahead of the train. Under the heading of “keeping it real,” some days I don’t want to have to think much about what to wear. I just need to get dressed and get on with my day. But I still want to feel put-together and feel like myself in what I’m wearing.
This J.Crew Margot sweater is of the hardest-working pieces in my wardrobe. I love merino wool because it adjusts to fluctuating temperatures (which we’ve certainly had our share of the last couple of weeks…yesterday was definitely a sweater day!). And it’s light enough to easily layer under a jacket. I’m wearing size Small. The sweater is currently marked down, and is offered in several colors, sizes XX-Small to 3X.
But I don’t feel completely dressed without a little jewelry and lipstick. All of these jewelry pieces are from French Kande, and are perfect throw-on-and-go styles. They’re comfortable to wear all day. My wrists are small, so I was able to customize the bracelet length to fit.
The 5-minute face
Most days, my makeup routine is quick and to-the-point. Last Saturday on a live Zoom with Brian + MW, Sandra Sallin and I took up the challenge to apply our makeup in 5 minutes or less. On camera, with the clock running. 😆 It was such fun, and thanks to all of you who joined us. You can watch the whole thing HERE.
