An Easy Combo




{Dress - Cynthia Rowley/Marshalls (similar); Cardi - J.Crew (similar); Leopard Belt - J.Crew (similar); Wedges - TopShop}

Right now, I think I could pair mint with almost any color and make an outfit less ordinary.  Not ordinary is my only goal when getting ready for work these days.  Sleep deprivation is a funny thing.  I can go 5 days in a row getting less than 6 hours of broken up sleep, then one glorious night comes along and the baby sleeps for 10 solid, self-soothing hours, and I sleep for at least 7 pretty solid hours.

The funny thing on these rarer nights, well two funny things - I wake up several times just because I'm used to waking.  I take a look at the little guy on our video monitor (thank goodness for this thing), watch his breath and awe over his sweet face, then go back to sleep. Repeat.  Then the next day, I should feel refreshed when the baby sleep past 7am. But I find myself feeling more tired after these nights than the sleep deprived ones.

I'm not sure why it works that way - but I compare this situation to chocolate.  Get a little, want a lot.

  1. The bright pink lipstick looks amazing on you, especially with those blue tones! I need to break mine out more. I'm a little afraid of wearing it to school because it screams, "HEY I'M WEARING BRIGHT PINK LIPSTICK!!!" when I do :)

  4. I'm so jealous of your pink lips--seriously. I have tried it, and it just won't work for me. So allow me to live vicariously, okay?

    And your wardrobe staple is pretty much exactly the same as mine! And yes, mint does indeed make everything more interesting.

  7. Love the lips, and love the fact that it's like an affordable drug store lipstick! I feel like every time I see a fabulous lip color on my fave style blogs and then I look and it's a $28 tube from MAC, and for something fun like this shade of pink that's not something that you wear everyday, I just don't feel like I can justify that. Thank you for featuring so many affordable items!

    1. Ah, Lindsay - love hearing this feedback - thank you! Every once and awhile I splurge (a little Kate Spade there, a Nars lipstick here, ya know), but my mainstay is affordable clothing & style - lots of Old Navy, J.Crew on sale (a full price splurge here and there) & Target for this girl! :)
