~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~

Still one of my favorite dresses.

Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket.  I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim.  I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip:  If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress $14.99 from Ross

Distresses Denim Jacket  $39.99 from American Eagle (also seen here)

Crossbody Bag c/o meet mark

Bangles/cuff $12.99 from Macy’s

Penny Wayfarer sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com

Wedges from Charlotte Russe (also seen here)

Cheat Your Way To Chic

I’ve been fighting a nasty cold for about a month and it seems that every time I start to turn the corner one of the kids will bring home a new set of germs!  Anyway, when I wake up in the morning the restless nights of coughing and sneezing are all over my face and even my normal makeup routine can’t hide the worn out look. I’m not a cosmetologist nor am I very good with makeup techniques BUT after a couple of kids I’ve picked up a few tricks to hide the flaws:

Sunglasses – the bigger the better!

A bright scarf is a no brainer.

 

Eos!  Everyone always thinks I have lipstick on when it’s just amazing organic chapstick!

 Earrings – I feel naked without a pair (and the shinier the better).

 Dry shampoo is my saving grace! I have really long hair that gets oily pretty quick and I don’t have time to wash and dry every other day so I rely on dry shampoo daily.  It soaks up all the oil and leaves my hair full and shiny.  PSST is my favorite but I just bought Suave’s dry shampoo (it works amazingly well and is so much easier to find).

When I lived up north I always wore an inexpensive black coat for covering up less than stellar outfits.  So if you’ve got one, pull it out. If not, snag one…it’s worth it!  This one is only $40 from WindsorStore.com. Tip: Thrift stores are a great spot for coats and who knows you might score a nice vintage or designer one.
