After two day weekend it is time to get back into work mode. Fortunately this Monday started out very smoothly and relaxing for me.
And obviously a day can’t start without delicious breakfast and strong cup of coffee.
Since the day is very relaxing I was not in the mood to spend long time on the make up.
I used BB cream on my skin from the brand Pure Line (Чистая линия). On the eyes I used Chanel Stylo eyeshadow in 197 Vert Grise and my Chanel mascara. As a blush I used my all time favorite Burberry Earthy Blush that looks very natural on the skin.
As you might of noticed from my previous blog posts, I’ve been very into darker colors that don’t exactly scream summer. Today I wanted to try on a brighter color and went for Dolce & Gabbana nail polish in color 108 Cosmopolitan.
For the day out I wore my favorite outfit that is very comfortable but looks polished at the same time. The dress is from H&M and for years I wanted a dress in similar style but I was always very conscious about the stretchy material showing all the body imperfections. Since I’ve start working out on regular bases I was brave enough to finally pick up a dress that I wanted for many years. The cardigan is from Banana Republic and I looked for a cardigan with this shape in gray color for a while but most that I would find would not look as flattering as this one. The handbag that I wore is Kate Spade bag witch I showed before in ‘What’s in my bag‘ post. The shoes are from one of my favorite brands Vince Camuto. Even though they are heels I find that I can walk in them for hours without any pain or discomfort.
One of my favorite thing to do is visit Powell’s Book store which is located in Portland downtown. Unfortunately I don’t get to visit often as it is located in a very busy are. It’s been said that Powell’s Book store is the largest independent book store in the world which sells new and used books in any language your heart desires. I love the fact that I am able to sell some of my old book that I know I will never want to read again.
I picked up few books and as you can see they are all influenced by my nostalgic moments from France. Paris Street Style and How to be Parisian Wherever you Are, are the books that I wanted to pick up for a while and before I headed to the cash register I spot this book called Lunch in Paris.
That is all for this Monday’s ‘Day in life’ post.Let me know if you enjoyed this type of blog post so that I would know if I should continue doing them once in a while. Hope you enjoyed it!
Till next time,
