Happy Monday ladies. Hanukkah is already here and we’re on the home stretch for Christmas. Mr. AWSL and I spent the weekend running errands and trying to get ready for the holidays. I did a little window shopping and a whole lot of people watching. What caught my eye was the number of women who were wearing clumpy, bulky, athletic shoes that destroyed the look of their outfits.
Trust me, I get it. I’m a woman with problem feet so shoes are always a struggle. But I am on a quest to find an alternative that is stylish and comfortable.
My feet have been giving me more problems than not these days. I’m not sure if it’s that snarky bunion I have been trying to ignore or if I’m spending too much time on my feet, but comfort has been alluding me. So when I ran across this new (to me) company that makes an affordable ballet flat that is highly rated for comfort, I had to order a pair. Then I ran across these which come in 9 colors, 3 widths, and have a 5mm foam insole. The reviews are so good, I ordered them too. You may see a theme here…I’m on the hunt for a cute ballet flat that is easy on the feet. I will keep you posted.
I mentioned these very briefly here and several of you expressed an interest in what’s new and stylish for working out. I need to update all my things so I’ll be motivated to put them on and go to the gym more often. The newest fabrics are moisture-wicking, super soft and a world apart from what I have been wearing. With the new year looming, now’s the time to get back on track to get the exercise my body needs. You can spend a small fortune on workout clothes but nice ones are available at all price points. I’m on the hunt for color and shapes that feel fun like these very highly rated bootleg workout pants.
This multiuse cleansing water has been popular in France for many years. It’s made up of tiny micelles (oil molecules) suspended in soft water which cleanses and hydrates your skin without drying it out. And it works! I no longer use a makeup remover. I simply pour some Micellar water on a cotton pad and wipe my face clean. I use both sides to remove my eye makeup, then a fresh pad to swipe over my skin. You can use micellar water instead of a facial cleanser or before. It’s very gentle on my skin and leaves it feeling soft and fresh.
Cruelty-Free Micellar Water
Faux Leather Leggings/Pants
I avoided these for years because the only ones I saw were super shiny and skin tight. Then last year I bought these, which look more like actual pants and have a ponte knit back which makes them super comfy. This year when I ran across these, bought them and love them. I’m glad I kept an open mind about faux leather pants because these two pairs are getting a lot of wear this winter.
Have you tried faux leather pants or leggings?
What do you wear them with?
