My five minute foundation routine

I have received so many questions and comments over the years on my foundation routine. The most common questions include “are you wearing foundation?” or  “what foundation do you wear? Looking back, I realized I have never shared my routine in detail on the blog  so here it is.

Sunday's Best, the pleated skirt

I originally wanted to post a causal outfit that I previewed on instagram a few days ago, but I thought it was only fitting to post this outfit i wore today instead.  I've been seeing these faux leather pleated skirts everywhere and loved the idea that they could be dressed up or down. However, when they first hit the stores, most of them were out of my budget at $50 or more! But like most things,they went on sale and I had to pick one up.

stripes, bows and a birdcage skirt

 It's all about femininity and playing dainty on today's outfit post. Although,  I love  masculine elements thrown into any outfit, sometimes being a bit girly never hurts either.  I paired a bowed stripped top  with a #424 fifth birdcage skirt, and I'm loving the look. The outfit is finished off with black tights to keep the look practical for the colder months.

Fashion 9-5: The plaid blazer

The other day I had an epiphany while getting ready to head out the door for my current clinical placement for school. For years I have never had to dress up for a 9-5 type of job as I have never had one. My field of work requires me to wear uniforms and I predominantly work shift work. Now, I have to rack my brain constantly on what is considered too dressy, too flashy, but still allows me to utilize my closet and show my personality in a business causal work environment.
