Who wouldn’t like to have a new way to put on makeup? I know most of us ladies put on makeup with the intent to make sure we don’t scare anybody throughout the day. I have looked back on some old pictures, and I am not sure that I met that criteria. Lol! There were days when I might have had on a little too much eyeshadow, (think MiMi on the Drew Carey show) or worse yet, I might have looked like Casper. Nothing friendly about THAT look. At the end of this post, I am going to share a woman’s worst nightmare. My daughter-in-law bravely let her husband put on her makeup for her. She didn’t tell him what any of the items were, or where he should use them, or how much he should use. I know you are already starting to conjure up a picture in your mind, and you are probably not too far off.
I am giving you fair warning so that you do not spew coffee onto your computer. I am not responsible for any drinks that might hit the keyboard. Haha I will quickly give you some of the details of my outfit, so you can go view the video. I have on a Linea by Louis Dell’Olio top that is a crepe material. I really like the fit, I am wearing a small so remember they run big. The dark gray color might not be something you would think of when it comes to spring, but I really liked the top and it was on sale for $6.00, so I knew I could make it work. It will also work way up into the fall season. QVC didn’t have the top in the color I have on, but there are a couple different colors to choose from.
My pants are a pair I picked up when we were in Florida this past February, at Van Heusen. I have seen where several readers commented that they never knew Old Navy carried clothing that “we” could wear, that is how I felt about Van Heusen. I always thought they only had men’s clothing. That was a BIG mistake. I love their items. They are a little on the dressy side, think Ann Taylor, Talbots, and Express but I think the prices are really reasonable. Here is a similar pair from JC Penny in a misses & petite, and here is a similar plus pair.
Once again, the scarf is the scene stealer. If not for the scarf, this outfit would have never came together. I love scarves, because you can see how colors will “go” together that you might not have thought would. Let’s be honest, would any of you have put dark gray and coral together? I wouldn’t have, but when I saw the gray in the scarf then I immediately started looking for a pair of orange pants. Wouldn’t you just know I would have a pair? haha I bought this scarf a couple years ago at Old Navy, but here, here, and here are similar ones that I like.
The studded flats are by Sole Society, and I am so proud of myself for wearing another pair of flats. Here is how I wore this shoes last. I like the studs, they are still popular this year. Here is a side view for you to see. The top is plenty long to hide your tush area. haha You can see how the pockets are made also. Here is a post where I wore a similar top, but the material is completely different.I hope you enjoyed today’s look. I know you will enjoy the video below.
