Flyrish 'Fitted and the Benefits of Beautifying

"Fish in the sea you know how I feel, River running free you know how I feel, Blossom on the tree you know how I feel" ~ Nina Simone

Here's another one inspired by GGC. It was an unseasonably warm Saturday in November, but I refuse to let the weather completely dictate my fashion -- I still like to dress according to season. Which I know is kind of ridiculous in California since we don't have real seasons. But bear with me, people.
Welcome to my bar

Dress: H&M (only $5 on sale last year!)
Cardigan: Madewell (in love/obsessed with this brand lately; it's hard to see the details on the cardigan, but they are great -- like gunmetal stud buttons)
Leggings: Forever 21
Boots: BC Footwear
Boombox necklace: Rachel by Rachel Roy (my favorite, a gift from T)

Other things of note:
I trimmed my own bangs for the first time. Yay me! I did a decent job, which is pretty shocking. Decent but not perfect. That's okay. It was my first time. I'm just proud that I didn't cut off all of my lashes or jab my eyeballs out. 

Also, I treated myself on Friday to some waxing and makeup at Benefit. One of my besties works there as an esthetician and she is amazing. I love visiting her. One of the goodies I picked up was That Gal. I forgot how in-freakin-credible that stuff is. It's this brightening face primer and it makes you look more awake, healthier, fresher, smoother, dewy-but-not-shiny, smarter and more interesting! Okay, I don't know about the last two, but it's seriously impressive. And I'm not getting paid to say this either. If I was, that would be silly because, ooh, look, 20 more people now know about this product. Not worth it.

Anyway. Fun beauty weekend for mama. And I'm feeling good like Nina Simone.


    Bangs = BRAVO, great job!
    Necklace = Awesome
    Dress = Love, price-double love
    Cardi = Love
    Boots = Awesome
    Total package = A+++

  2. I love you. Thank you for your kind words and for always being so kind and loving and amazing. You are beautiful - radiant with awesome. And I LOVE your ensemb here. Comf and cute and I want to hug you. xo

  3. I love your style! Those boots look like a pair at Aldo that I have been hoping to purchase for some time now. Beautifying takes efforts, but it makes us, as women, and, especially, as moms, feel so much better!


  4. Thank you so much, ladies!

    @GGC, I love you more! You're such an inspiration.

  5. Love love this outfit! And now I'm coveting your teeny boombox. Dang.

  6. Great outfit! I love your fashion posts (with photos!) my pisces fashion queen! :)
