Hi all, today is my first day back to the office except for a random day last fall. I will be going twice a week. I can change to three days if I want to in the future but won’t be going back to five.

The newest thing in this outfit is the boots (bought in December):
Doc Marten boots
Boden blazer
BR top
Wit and Wisdom jeans.

The office is casual for those of us in internal facing roles, and I expect it to remain so but I always liked to dress a small notch above that. Plus I have a lot of dresses that are languishing (all but the summer ones).

In other news, I need to rethink my makeup. Everything I used today is random and leftover from before the pandemic. I’d like a quick routine of some kind of light Foundation, concealer as needed, light blush, and eye makeup and lips (those can be light). I don’t need mascara generally and don’t like it anyway. Ditto eye pencil and lip pencil. I know this is a very general question, but do any of you have good product recs? I am willing to spend a bit but don’t want to break the bank either, so I guess I’m looking for mid-range cost.

Generally I have worn Clinique lip and cheek sticks, but have had random foundations/concealers/tinted moisturizers. I always like the Nars eye palettes though I have no idea how to wear more more than two colors at a time! I know there are plenty of tutorials online though.

I’m also seeing a dermatologist next week, so I will likely have to see what she says before buying anything. I have had a dry, rashy upper lip and general blotchy skin (acne).

I hope you all are well! I’ll try to comment more, but I have no time during workdays anymore, and am too tired to write at night. I do lurk though, and I hope been shopping. It’s mostly been warm weather stuff (since it wears out) and gear. XOXO
