into the flow

Playing: Winter Passing-The Academy Is...
Reading: The Look by Harry Brant (Actually pretty interesting...)
Over fall break, I took a trip over to Zara to get a few more flimsy pieces of clothing that flow nicely. I got a cream version of my favorite black tank top along with another slip dress. Slip dresses are super easy to style and are very comfortable, so I've taken to wearing them around quite a bit. I bought the red skirt because it's very simple and I've been wanting to add skirts into my closet. I like skirts and dresses, but it's not as if I'm excessively girly and want floral prints/bows/lace on all my clothes, so it's difficult to find things that I like. However, Zara can always be relied on to supply great basics.
I recently also bought some beauty products, which I've been meaning to show you. When it comes to makeup, I try not to wear too much. I usually just do some foundation for my skin and some sort of lip product. I really like this lip crayon from Korean brand, IASO, in Sweet Liar. Even though it's a mint color, it goes onto your lips a nice, muted raspberry color. It looks natural enough and is super moisturizing. Lately, it's become my go to lip color and I don't even need to carry around chap stick if I'm wearing it. I also like this berry shade from Chanel, Envoutante. It goes on sheer with a slight shimmer to it and is easy to put on.
My dad retired last week and a lot of patients brought in goodbye gifts for him. One of them brought in a box of macarons from Lette and included one of every flavor. I've always wanted to get one of each flavor from any macaron store, but they're so expensive that I could never justify doing so. Therefore, these obviously made me very excited. Sorry about not blogging much lately. With school going on, I find it difficult to do anything vaguely blog worthy such as go on adventures and such. However, I did go to two concerts with the past two days, so I'll get a post together of that. Hope you're all doing well!

    1. Lette is probably the best that we have in Southern California (most of the other places are way too artificial for my tastes), but Laduree is still the best!

      The berry color works so well and I highly recommend this color!

  6. Whoa, I'm surprised that mint green pencil comes out red.
    That macaron box is lux and love that skirt. I prefer my skirts/dresses not to be overtly "girly" or twee as well.
    Following you now on GFC. Love your writing style and I may have to copy you and put quotes on my sidebar. I have quite a collection going and nowhere to dump them

  9. That red skirt, I must see a coordinate picture when you wear it!
    I too fantasize about one of each flavor of macaron from a store. I can only dream of getting one of each from Laduree.

    1. I have so many coordinate photos saved up. I need to post them soon before I forget them.

      I can only dream of that too. I'm hoping that one day someone will get me one of each flavor. :D

    1. Slip dresses are so easy to wear and I like how they're easy to layer for the winter months.
