This is one of my favorite mom-friendly outfits. It's both comfortable and cute. Plus there's a little bit of pattern mixing- always a plus.
One thing I love to do when I'm wearing a fairly simple outfit is to spice it up with some bold/colorful makeup. With this outfit I went for a purpley-pink to black look. Lately I've been doing a lot of experimenting with eye makeup. This means that John comes home to see me wearing sweatpants but also an intense dark blue smokey eye. Days when I don't have to go out are the best days for experimentation after all.
My Electric Palette by Urban Decay arrived last week and oh my goodness I'm in love. Usually when I want the color of an eye shadow to stand out I have to wear white eyeliner underneath it. Not so with this palette. I'll have to share a tutorial using this palette soon so you can really see what I mean. I'm thinking I'll use the neon pink and purple for my makeup today... yes, that will do quite nicely.
