summer mouth

I completely checked out this weekend, from the moment I left work until early this morning I hardly checked my emails or blogs. The same jeans and tee and sweater from Friday night to Sunday seems to be a thing I do around this time every year from lack of motivation to go out in yet another day of frigid wind and grey skies. Friday I had a date with Rich and then Saturday morning we took a long walk around a neighborhood out in the deep, pretty suburbs while his car got serviced. I spent my Saturday afternoon with my best friend helping her pack for a week in St. Lucia and my evening snuggled up on the couch with my Netflix queue and lentil soup. Sunday was all laundry and visiting kittens at the shelter and a full afternoon making pea soup and baking cookies. Kind of perfectly unplanned, but I let all my blog posts get backed up. Whoops. You don't mind though, right?
This outfit is actually from a few weekends ago, but echos my feelings of surrender to winter this time of year. Luckily I found the most perfect summer lipstick a few weeks ago that I can't stop using. Its Sephora's Rouge Cream in Hot Tango which is my new half-price non-lip-cracking replacement for Nars' Dragon Girl. I don't feel so bad decking out in nothing but old docs, jeans and a grey sweater with this summer mouth.

  1. Very cute outfit! I really want to visit New York and go to Beacon's Closet, you always have such cute things from there! I love the lippy, it is almost a coral shade, which I have been a very huge fan of lately! :)

  2. That sounds like a perfect weekend. Weekends are the best, right?
    I love that sweater, with the pretty puffed sleeves!


  3. Thanks, I used to be obsessed with princess sleeved sweaters. I have so many. Weekends ARE the best. 5 day weekend 2 day workweek would be best ;)

  4. If you come to NY we can go to ALL the locations! Yea, I just can't wait to wear it with a tan lol...its a little much for my winter face. Plus, thankfully, its affordable!
