Cool, calm & collected…

Sometimes simplicity is the hardest to achieve. We tend to be creatures of more, more & more…so it’s rare to be able to walk out the door with just a simple, almost colorless outfit. I felt very classy and elegant in this casual look. The shirt is one of the softest blues I have ever seen…it almost looks white in the pictures.

Antik Batik Akatong sandals
Mikimoto Pearl neckalce

Lastly, I’m the type of girl that puts on lip gloss and mascara and calls it a day…so makeup and I are not exactly best friends but I will say that making friends with so many bloggers has taught me a thing or two. First of all, there are so many amazing beauty bloggers that will give you tips on how to treat your hair to how to apply the perfect lip liner…just YouTube and you’ll see. I found a fabulous blogger, Annie Jaffrey, and her video on how to do flawless makeup (click here).
I didn’t have half the tools or colors she did but I tried my best to follow what she was doing and luckily I had just purchased some new brushes…so I tried it out and overall I think I did okay. I would not do this for everyday…I kind of like the way I look sans makeup (here) but once in a while it is pretty nice to feel like a glam girl ;) Hope today is that day for you!
See you around…

XOXO,
Martha

    Hi Deborah!
    Thank you :)
    I know all the trends right now are about colors and prints…but I was feeling a little neutral that day and I always think you should dress as your mood ;) Because you always look the best when you feel good in what you’re wearing!

    Thank you, DF! But I have to admit that seeing these pictures makes me realize how nice it is to have a “flawless” complexion…if it it’s just in print ;)
