love to wear jeans under skirts or dresses. Mostly to cover my not so smooth legs and flowers in my hair.
If you were to meet me for the very first time I would have to say your impression might be. She is very quiet, she is calm and she is a little bit eclectic. My voice may come out a little in my clothing and accessories.
if you see a designer bag, it’s because I have been given as gifts (3) coach bags. Yep three. So I use them. mixing and matching prints and color is my most favorite. And the earrings in this photo are my all time favorite. I wear them with everything just about and even if they don’t match. The bigger the sunglasses. The better.
I don’t think I have a specific style although my kids say each time I bring home a new top “looks like one you already have” I don’t know much about designer this or designer that. My latest pair of shoes are from Wal-Mart a knock off of TOMS. I scored a beautiful pair of red shoes a few winters back from the Goodwill. I actually prefer shopping second-hand but I do have a favorite store in my hometown called “Roadkill Ranch” I will go as far as to say “I HATE the mall” I don’t like the prices that’s for sure. I love knee socks and boots but my legs are not really made for them. I wear the knee socks anyway but boots are hard to fit around my claves. I still love leg warmers and I think they are back and even if they are not back, I don’t care. I like them anyways. And again, probably not the best idea to add layers to my already thick legs but I don’t care. I still like them. You will never see me in a pair of white pants, or white shorts or too much white anything. I do love it when I see white on others but for me it wouldn’t ever be a good idea. I’m sort of messy naturally. I would stain them in 2.2 seconds. My favorite tennis shoe will always be a converse. Even when I walk for exercise because they are just classic and timeless as far as I’m concerned and they come in endless colors which really makes me happy.
When it comes to make up, I’m a creature of habit. I have a very small make up bag and inside it has one pencil eyeliner (brown) one liquid eye liner (dark brown), mascara, cover girl foundation which I wear 50% of the time with a little powder and my recent add, blush. That’s it. On rare occasions I might put on red lipstick but I didn’t buy it. I earned it in points with my Aveda products that I sometimes buy for my hair.
I don’t have a real amazing beauty routine. I might wash my face off in the shower and recently started to use a cleaner from doterra from oils I use. And most recent an amazing skin care lotion that I tried and within 6 days, a huge difference occurred. It was freaky. I may or may not decide to use just the night cream. I really love it but since I have tried nothing else, I have nothing to compare it to.
When it comes to brushing my teeth, I use whatever catches my eye but also recently I was introduced to homemade toothpaste and have made my own which I’m preferring over the store-bought kind. It’s simple and it feels like my teeth are squeaky clean with the stuff.
Hair? Um well. I seem to make an appointment to get it trimmed about every 6 months or so. I think the standard for a lot of women with long hair is to put it in a ponytail. Which I do sometimes but I do wear it completely down more than one would think. When I’m being kind to my hair I will buy Aveda shampoo and conditioner but mostly I just use what’s cheap and on sale. I will vip up the color of my hair too from time to time or add high lights but recently it’s just the color I was born with. It’s faded a lot since I have gotten older. It used to be a vivid and rich red color, now it’s sort of dull and faded but I think I could fix that if I got my hair done more often.
Nobody asked but I just thought I would give you my rundown on my fashion sense or maybe some would say, not so fashion sense because I also still wear Birkenstocks;) What I have found to be of great value and help is to NOT buy fashion magazines or the latest celebrity tabloids. I prefer not to be sucked into the latest trends it saves me money.
