OOTD: Working with Navy

So, I threw this outfit together this morning and I absolutely love it.  I had been trying to piece it together for about a week now but something was always in the way.  Whether the shirt was in the laundry or the sweater had just been worn... It just wouldn't work out.  Well, it is everything I expected it to be so the wait was well worth it :-)

T-shirt: The Limited
Sweater: The Gap
Belt: The Limited
Skirt: The Limited
Boots: Miz Mooz

I felt soooo New Yorkish in this outfit today.  I hope you guys like it as well.  Back to work now.  Toodles!

Prepping for Spring

With Spring being right around the corner, I am already starting to make small changes in hair, skin, wardrobe and make-up.  We all understand that the warmer weather brings about a slew of changes for us women.  I haven't dug into my wardrobe changes much  so we will hold off on that for now.

HAIR.  This year during the warmer months, I will be wearing a lot of twist outs and braid outs.  I don't want to use much heat if any at all.  In addition, I will likely move to washing my hair twice a week as opposed to just once.  The second wash, which will probably be on Wednesday, will likely be a co-wash.

SKIN.  I have been using my Clarisonic as you guys know and I am still in the honeymoon phase!  I have no bad thoughts about it at all.  My skin has drastically changed and improved since starting to use it.  I took a trip to Sephora to look for an oil-free moisturizer and was given a few samples to try out.  Currently, I use Hope in a Jar but for us oily women, we definitely need oil-free moisturizers... ESPECIALLY, in the summer!  So, the samples they gave me were...
Hope Oil-Free SPF

Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew™

Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15

I used the DDF Moisturizer today and loved it.  I also received an unusual amount of compliments about how great my skin looked.  Could've been a coincidence, might've been the moisturizer... Who knows! Lol.

MAKE-UP.  I have already made one too many MAC counter trips in the past month.  I have been trying to really lighten up on the make-up front with the warmer weather coming.  I cannot stand wearing thick foundation in hot weather... "I'm melting!!!!!" is all I can think about! Lol.  So far I have purchased my Studio Tint which is a tinted moisturizer.  Its been lovely feeling my skin breathe and not be so suffocated under my MUFE Mat Velvet.  In addition to the Studio Tint, here are the other items I've picked up...

NARS Hollywoodland Soft Touch Pencil
Deep Throat
Nars Deep Throat Blush

NARS Orgasm Illuminator

 Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass
MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga
These items have me feeling all ready for the summer.  I actually wore most of these items today with the exception of the NARS Orgasm Illuminator.  I loved this look and it took all of 5 minutes to put together.

This is really the look I want to maintain throughout the summer.  Its clean, fresh yet sexy.  The best part is the beauty I see in the mirror isn't created by heavy foundation, but rather its actually me and my skin :-)  I don't think I can sing enough praises about the Clarisonic.  Anywho, as we get closer to summer I will update with even more products including clothing!  Can't wait!  Til next time... Toodles!!
