Thanks to this little online journal and to the mirrors I look into everyday, I’ve started to notice something… These days I feel I often look ‘half finished’. It’s taken me a little while to put my finger on what was ‘missing’ and that’s when I realised that most of my outfits are seriously lacking accessories and my make up seriously lacking colour!!!
I have fallen into a rut of BB Cream and Mascara. Wedding rings and a necklace.
I 100% put this down to a ‘mum’ and a ‘time’ thing and obviously am not about to slap on red lipstick and stack my forearms with bangles for our weekly playgroup or Monday grocery run, but now that Alexander is getting a tiny bit older and we are emerging from the newborn fog, I think it’s time to add a few more finishing touches to my outfits.
My personal style is on the minimalist side anyway so I can’t imagine I’ll be going too crazy but given how my husband reacted last night when I put eyeliner on for the first time in oh, maybe 3 years? I think a make-up refresh will be my first port of call. Spring/Summer is a great time to experiment with new colours and fun products so I’ll be sure to let you know how the revamp goes.
In the meantime however, I will leave you with a profession of my love for the long sleeved maxi dress this season. This is the second one I’ve added to my wardrobe in as many months so I dare say you’ll be seeing a few more on the blog to come!
