Find Your Magic


It was about 82 degrees Fahrenheit outside when I took these pictures, and no, they are not a holdover from a bygone summer day.  After so many chilly, rainy days we had a gorgeous, sunny Saturday, October 8th.  The husband and I went shopping for some kitchen supplies, groceries, and a really cute sweater from Express:
I got a size or two up so it fits even slouchier on me, with my silhouette peeking through in a matching cami.  It's just the kind of cozy/sexy hybrid I'm looking for this Fall!  But, of course, I threw on a summer dress for today's heat wave:

Dress: F21 like $7! Necklace: Jewelmint
Makeup Breakdown: Eyes and Cheeks are the Stila Find Your Magic palette, plus Urban Decay 24/7 liner in 1999 on upper lashline and waterline, and NYX Fly With Me Mascara.  Lips are Milani Lip Flash pencil in In a Flash topped with Liplicious Lip Gloss in Cookies and Scream.








I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!

  5. Ah Michigan! So you aren't that far from me at all :) I was going to say that you must be close because it's been abnormally hot here for this time of year!

    I love your necklace. It adds a neat architectural detail to your outfit.

  6. @Liz, thanks! I'm a jeans-and-a-T-shirt girl or a dress girl so it's out of the box for me :)
    @Mara, those pencils are very pigmented and sharpen very easily. I think they're a dupe of the recent Urban Decay gloss pencils but I don't own them to compare. Still, fun colors if you're daring or for a night out :)
    @Old Cow, thank you! A recent post of yours is making me think I ought to do more mattes :)
    @Psycho Cat, thank you <3 It's kind of 1970's, so I'm going for a haircut today!
    @Jessica, I think we got that heat wave the U.K. bloggers were talking about last week! Thanks for noticing the necklace. Had to add clean lines to the slouchy dress!

  20. Penelope you're too nice, hehe, I always wanted the "model" bone structure! I am okay with how I look now because I think accepting yourself is important, but I really hated how I looked when I was younger. Anyway, thank you so much for your kind comments <3
