I lied: it's hot again. Shorts weather hot. I know it doesn't make sense I mean one day I'm wearing a sweater, the next I'm in shorts. I swear I'm going to catch a cold.

Do you know what I like about sunglasses? They hide your face just when you need them to. I mean sure they also block sun out and make you appear intimidating, but really I use them to hide the dark circles that blanket my sleepy eyes. After the Bloom party last night (thank you to all who came out! so.much.fun.) my face has a hang-over. No, my face didn't get wasted it's just so tired that no makeup wants to stay on today. Please tell me you know what I mean, right? Why is it that when you need makeup the most it just doesn't want to stay on? I feel like I've put 3 layers of makeup on today: one for routine, one to cover the sleepy, and one to not scare small children. I think I'm down to just one layer now. 

Small children beware: this is what staying up past your bedtime looks like.

  1. :) love those shoes. they look fabulous on you with this outfit. and though you're wearing shorts, the fall colors shine through! 

    also know what you mean about make-up. mine slides off a tired face, clings to an awake one,

  2. Happy Birthday Bloom! The party face looks great, I wouldn't stress too much. Especially since those shorts are freakin adorable.  Love the new fall colors even if it comes in a pair of shorts.

    Note to self, whip out my burgandy shorts and booties for a Fall transition look in HOTlanta.

  4. I know EXACTLY what you mean about the "face hangover" Oy. Makes me wish I didn't have 20/20 vision so I could wear cute cat-eye glasses when my face looks like crap.

  5. Wedge loafers?! Love them!  You look gorgeous un-hungover.  Congrats on 1 year! What an accomplishment!

  14. The colors in this outfit are perfect together.  I never would've thought about pairing coral with plum, but I love it!  Also, I'm in full agreement regarding sunglasses.  Sometimes my sleepy eyes just don't need to be a thing for general public consumption.

  18. I totally wanted to comment on your Pinterest post the other day, but my stupid iphone browser won't except blogger. I too am addicted to pinterest. I almost lost myself when I saw a picture of my own baby on there from his infant pictures. I see you all the time on pinterest, but to see my own kid was freaky. 

    ReplyDelete
  19. Uh yeah that would freak me out too! I've never really put too much thought to seeing myself on pinterest just because you know, it's me in an outfit, whatever. I put it out there so it's out there. But to see my kid! That would freak me out.

  25. This reminds me of many conversations with my best friend regarding unspoken realities (i.e. hangover face).  One of our gems regards accidently touching someone's bare foot and you're like "oh, errm, sorry", whereas touching someone's arm or whatever doesn't warrant the same awkward feeling or apology. Does that make any sense at all?!?!  Well anyway, let's talk about hangover mouth.  Even water tastes wierd.

  26. I know hangover face all too well.  and the older you get he worse it gets.  so annoying.  you look super cute despite your tired face :).

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love this color combination - I'm wondering what brand those Kohl's shorts are?  They look like a nice weight for fall :)

  28. This outfit is genius! lovely colours.

  29. I'm not sure I'm familiar with a face hangover. Regular hangovers, definitely. Or maybe my face just has a hangover everyday so I don't even know the difference. Anywho, I love these colors together. You look lovely and not at all hungover - facially or otherwise!

  57. I'm sure you didn't need glasses to hide your face, but I totally understand you for wanting to wear them... There are days when I simply don't want to show my face either, so we are very lucky because someone was smart enough to invent maxi sunglasses.

    Shoes look as beautiful as those from the previous post.

  80. I know EXACTLY what you mean.  It's ALWAYS when you need to look nice (like yesterday for a local boutique shoot) that you just want to put a bag over your head bc makeup has given up on you.

    You seem to look lovely per usual here though, so props to you!xx,Erinhttp://erinscurrentlycoveting.blogspot.com

  81. At 24, I just bought my very first pair of sunglasses!  I have this fear that they'll make me look like I'm "TOO cool for school", which I know is completely ridiculous in this day and age. Not to mention I live in Arizona where EVERYONE wheres them pretty much year-round.  I'll be depending on you for sunglasses advice... So step one is wear them to cover up tired eyes eah?  Noted :)

  82. I love those shorts. I got some that are similar from the Target clearance rack recently. I might have to try to wear them before the cold REALLY sets in!
