Back to reality. I will say that I definitely filled up my “day off” yesterday by grading papers all day and teaching 3 barre classes. Seriously do I know how to just relax? Back at you with a Things I’ve Been Digging Lately update. These would make some lovely Christmas presents…..to yourself…..just saying.
It’s no secret around here that my first move when I get home is to immediately change into stretch pants. I have sat in patient rooms all day……therefore my clothes go immediately into the hamper. Side notedo you call it a hamper? Anyways….I think Mark is getting a little sick of my black F21 stretch pants and accompanying black tank with a built in bra because let’s be honest a bra is also the second thing that gets axed when no longer in public. So I have “upgraded” if you will my stretch pants to these little bad boys. They are the perfect length (aka can come down over your heels….it helps to elongate the leg in my opinion). The band on the top is just wide enough to hold everything in. Also the patterned on them are a little fancied up so you could perhaps duck out to Trader Joe’s and feel appropriate to be out with our functioning humans. I think they would also look fabulous tucked in with these black boots (on sale!) and this oversized sweater. If I had to dream up an outfit to go with it. Get on Lofts mailing list. They had a flash sale the other night and these bad boys were on sale + 60% off I think it made them like 12 bucks or something crazy pants like that. Reference: I got a size small and they fit perfectly, true to size. Also love the Houndstooth ones.
The most perfect lipstick that doesn’t look like a lipstick. I don’t really love wearing lipstick per se at work because I feel like that is dolling it up too much for the little people and their parents. However sometimes I need a little color to not look like the 4 hours of sleep that I in reality actually got. Therefore this is the best natural little flush color to your lips. Cannot recommend it more for that perfect natural daytime color. Also picked up the Microperfecting primer in green, does a great job with decreasing the natural red tinge to my cheeks. Then makeup application is flawless on top once you let it set in.
I really love the concept of bkr bottles. I like drinking out of the glass instead of plastic. I’m not like totally on the chemicals in plastic are going to kill us kinda wavelength even though it’s probably the truth. I mean I use the microwave on a daily basis that is probably going to do me in before using my tervis tumblr. However I love these bottles especially this one. Oh and also by the fact I can carry it hooked inside my finger while I’m balancing my 20 other things. It’s all about portability. I mean how stinkin cute is that pattern? The only rage issue I have with them is the wideness factor. It doesn’t fit in any of my cupholders #firstworldproblems. Which usually forces me to put it in between my legs and pray that the cap is secure.
Oh happy day when my new favorite scent became available in rollerball form. Have you had a chance to check it out yet? It is seriously heaven and giving my go to Guerlain L’Instant a run for it’s money.
I know convertible dresses are all the rage but the one I have drives me nuts. I can’t remember where I got it….most likely a Groupon thing or something. I really love the concept of them. This Rachel Pally one would be the best of both worlds. Convertible dress plus in her amazing drape fabric. I haven’t found one dress that doesn’t fit incredibly in this long maxi style.
One total lust piece that I wish would be under the tree but know it won’t happen but definitely on my swoon list. One of my students had this on and I felt like the total out of touch old person asking her who made the cuff. She couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of it before but now I’m obsessed especially in the rose gold.
Public Service Announcement. Target can you please bring these shirts back in stock. No lie I bought one and I am obsessed. They have the most perfect drape, fit and shape. Plus they are soft and totally wash well. These seriously look like one of those designer $80 “casual tees” but was like $10. When they come back in stock I am no doubt buying them in every single color.
Second PSA can we please petition to get people to stop putting raisins in carrot cake cupcakes??? I probably should stop eating them….let’s start with that. No worries about that dress fitting on Saturday or anything……
Just in case you are more of a visual learner. All the sweet digs lined up for you.
Hope you are having a great start to your week! What products have you been digging lately? xoxoxoxo
