For almost thirty years, I’ve been working from home. I get up at about 4 am, have coffee, then a couple of hours later, breakfast. I go for a walk, putter around in my flower gardens, then take my shower and get dressed for the day. I learned very early on that self-discipline and structure are necessary when you work from home.
I put on comfortable street clothes and a bit of makeup after my skincare routine. I am much more productive when I dress for work, rather than wearing a tee and yoga pants all day.
That’s my only pair of skinny style jeans, and they were a gift. They fit great in the waist, but I am no longer comfortable wearing this style, so they are in the to-go bag now. The jeans are here. The shirt is from the previous year. A similar one is here.
When garments or shoes are no longer comfortable, I donate them. Sometimes the garments still fit but no longer seem appropriate, so I let those items go to someone who will use them and enjoy them.
I pat the Counter+ All Bright C Serum here on before the Dew Skin tinted moisturizer here. I always return to the natural-looking lipsticks. The new formula is here. This color is Plum: True Berry. Natural-looking lashes are also my style, so I love this Volumizing Mascara here.
I’ve always enjoyed wearing at least a ring, a watch, and earrings. I don’t feel dressed without them. The Infinity watch is here.
The earrings are here. Use the code SAS10 For $10 off any item at Beauty In Stone Jewelry. A similar link bracelet is here, a similar bangle bracelet is here, and a similar ring is here.
When I wear flats with slim-fitting summer ankle pants, they need to have a visible arch and a low vamp to offset my thick calves and ankles. I also like to wear a pointed toe since that visually lengthens the legs by two inches.
The shoes pictured are by Franco Sarto and they are at least two years old. Similar here.
My breakfast once again includes oatmeal, but I don’t cook it. Here’s the recipe. Add a half cup of rolled oats to a dish with a cover. (This one is by Glasslock.) Add a tablespoon of molasses and a couple of ounces each raw pecans, and raw walnuts. Add 1/4 teaspoon of your favorite spices such as cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, allspice, or nutmeg. I add a teaspoon of Red Star Nutritional Yeast Flakes to almost every meal for B-12 vitamins since I don’t eat meat. You will also need one cup of almond milk. Stir all these ingredients together and cover. Put it in the fridge tonight, and tomorrow morning you will have breakfast waiting for you. Add fresh berries if you have them.
Oh how I love summer! There is nothing better than fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers to make a kitchen feel inviting.
I used my Sony Alpha a5100 camera’s timer and a tripod to take my photo on Thursday. Links in my posts may provide a small commission to me at no additional cost to you. I do not do advertising, sponsored posts, or accept gifts in exchange for reviews.
