Dress Well: Sans Makeup

I avoid wearing makeup on weekends whenever possible. Since I wear makeup five days a week, I always look forward to that clean, fresh-faced feeling that comes from avoiding makeup when I can. I also look forward to getting 10-20 minutes of my life back by skipping my normal makeup routine - why spend that time making up my face when I could be napping or eating ice cream instead?

In the spirit of this blog being a reflection of my normal, everyday life, I decided last night that I should take pictures without makeup. The only reason I would put it on is to look good for the camera - and you guys would rather see me as I really am, right? Full disclosure, I did put on a light layer of foundation mixed with moisturizer, as well as some blush. But that's it, I promise!

Note - for all of you who aren't familiar with what it looks like to have blonde, unadorned eyelashes - THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. Just because you can't see them doesn't mean that they don't exist...or that I'm sick. So please don't ask me if I am.

I had TONS of life stuff to catch up on after a couple crazy weeks at work + our trip to Florida, so it was so nice to finally clear some of those items off my to-do list. I also took a collective five hours worth of naps...apparently I was tired! And don't worry, we found time for a few fun things - on Saturday night we grabbed dinner and drinks at The Alembic, which has been on our San Francisco bucket list for quite awhile now. It was delicious - yet another great SF stop!

Enjoy your Monday!
