C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Tint #1138
I woke up this morning to the soothing pitter patter of raindrops on our deck. So soothing that it nearly soothed me back to sleep. Luckily I tore myself away from my warm bed and got myself to work. I'm getting a little sick of my combinations, so I threw on this cowl/shawl to mix it up a bit. I was inspired by a cowl I saw on etsy last year so I made one. I like it a lot. Sometimes I toss around the idea of starting an etsy store, but there are already a ton of really talented vendors on etsy and the last thing I need right now is another project. But if you'd like I can do a basic tutorial on it! I also recently crocheted a similar (but smaller) neckwarmer for my best friend's birthday after I saw she'd linked a few etsy ones on her gift list.
Lip color experiment: lip gloss. This one does not show as much as I thought it would. The tint, when it comes out, is a bright red.
After work I headed over to Created in California, a great event organized by Juniper James to showcase local Sacramento designers. My faves were Marty May and Morris & Terry. Had a great time with my other blogger gals, too!
The cowl! I've never actually worn it all day as a shawl before, but I really liked it. It really made the outfit. So comfy. (can you tell that's my buzz word this week?)
I'd rather not have worn jeans on a Wednesday, but it was a good day for that.
What do you revert to on days you really really want to be comfortable but still have to get it together for work?
