I’ve gotten out of the habit of snapping photos of what I’m wearing on a daily basis, so I started back this week and grabbed three. The lighting is awful, and I’ve chopped one in half to take my grandson out of it, but you’ll get an idea of what I wear off the blog.
I wore this to pick up my grandson from school and spend the afternoon with him. It wasn’t raining, but it felt chilly. I always find a trend coat the perfect weight for those in between days. Mine is from Loft a few years ago, but this one is very similar. I’ll get a better photo of this striped top for you soon because the quality is amazing, and I love it.
Over the weekend, we took my grandson to a corn maze and pumpkin picking. Yes, we got lost in the maze, and it was fun. Next time, I’ll have my husband grab a photo of just me so I don’t have to crop him out like this. I layered a cashmere sweater over a white shirt and my Talbots barely boot jeans. We were rushing so fast in the morning that I only remembered to put one earring on. Do you ever do that?
Sunday was a Bocce tournament, and the day started out windy and cold…especially when standing in the shade. I broke out my cashmere sweater from the Nsale, coordinating cashmere scarf, soft white vest, gray fedora, and the same jeans I wore the day before. I often wear my jeans twice before washing them, do you?
The lilac shade they have in this sweater now (marked down) looks a bit deeper, which I think I’d prefer with this scarf to add some variety. My soft white vest is several years old, and this one is similar. The neutral lover in me really loves the lilac with the white and gray color combo.
The Look For Less with J.Crew and J.Crew Factory
I’m a big fan of the latest collections at J. Crew and think they’re getting better each season. They seemed to lose their way after Jenna Lyons left the brand, but they’re finally getting back on track. J.Crew Factory is the sister brand to the original, with many similar items at lower prices, and I thought it would be fun to compare some outfits.
J. Crew is on the left, and the J.Crew factory is on the right. The differences are subtle, so it’s easy to get a very similar look for less. Which J. Crew would interest you?
After I mentioned beauty expiration dates in my newsletter yesterday, I continued going through my drawers and found many more things that had expired, so I tossed them out. The Sephora Sale has started for Rouge members with 20% off, so I reordered some beauty favorites.
I’ve tried a lot of cleansers over the years but keep coming back to this one because it takes everything off cleanly, never strips the moisture from my skin, and never leaves it irritated.
Then I spotted this set of Farmacy cleansers for Tea Lovers, which I certainly am, and decided to give them a try. Gift sets are a great way to sample new products or give them as gifts for the holidays. These small sizes are also great for travel. I find gift sets often end up being cheaper, plus you get to try new things.
Here are a few more clean beauty sets I found that look promising:
Okay, so I asked a lot of questions in this random Monday musings…let’s recap…
Do you wear your jeans more than once before you wash them?
Do you ever get so busy that you forget to put on your second earring?
Which J. Crew Outfit would interest you?
What beauty products do you buy on repeat?
Be sure you wear what makes you feel confident today and take time for yourself.
