Summer is a splendid time to visit the mountains. The temperatures dipped into the 60’s while we were there and the breeze made it feel even cooler. I was glad that I wore a denim jacket and white girlfriend ankle jeans both from Chico’s. The limousine shoes are from last year by Vince Camuto. I love the idea of throwing on a jean jacket over just about any look. The problem for me is that the typical trucker style jean jacket is all wrong for my body. They are too boxy, and the faded out denim near my face makes me look faded as well. The patch pockets and gold tone thread typically used for the double stiched seams do me no favors either.
The dark wash, fitted style with rows of silver buttons ala military style, create vertical long, lean lines making this jacket a much better choice for me.
Watching the wildlife grazing at the edge of the woods is always a treat for me. We saw deer, wild turkeys, groundhogs, and Canadian geese on Saturday.
The shrimp and grits with puff pastry appetizer was delightful!
The roasted corn and chicken ordered by the folks next to us was beautiful too!
Being confident and comfortable is the best look of all. Being comfortable will mean something entirely different to each person who reads this. I am very comfortable and confident in this look, but I am never comfortable in shorts, a tee, and flip flops because my personality is much more formal. Dressing the personality as well as the body elevates your confidence.
I promised to keep you up to date with the products I am using from the Beautycounter line.
The Cleansing Balm is my favorite cleanser ever! It may seem counterintuitive to put oil on your face to cleanse it, but it is indeed the best choice for my skin. The soothing richness makes my skin look the smoothest it has looked in many years. After gently using the muslin cloth to remove all of my makeup, I pat more of the oil onto my face and neck because it feels so wonderful. I add the night time moisturizer over that.
