On the weekends, I tend to like to dress down and choose more comfortable outfits to wear than I would pick for the work week. I realized recently, that I don’t have too many casual tops that are specifically for the weekend. I find myself trying to dress down work appropriate tops by pairing them with casual bottoms like jeans or shorts. One way I dress down a blouse is by layering it underneath my Dolan boatneck sweatshirt. I bought this about a year ago and just love it. It’s so comfortable and not too heavy; it’s much thiner than a typical sweatshirt. When I put this over a button-down blouse it changes the look dramatically and on days where there’s a bit of a breeze it keeps me warm without overheating.
Another weekend trend for me is to wear no make-up. I’ll go almost the whole day without putting any on unless of course, we have something special going on. It’s really one of my favorite things to do. I like to let my skin breathe and have more time to let my skincare products really seep in and moisturize and allow my natural beauty shine. No make-up, no problem! As women, I think we sometimes think, or feel, like we are not beautiful without our makeup on and I really believe that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Make-up can enhance our features but it’s not dependent on it.
So when the clouds don’t seem to want to part and the breeze comes in from the coast I like to layer up with no make-up!
