Rainy Summer - a day in the life of an EuropeanSaturday, July 19, 2014
So... a day in the life of an European around July would be a day filled with sun light and Summer heat, wearing lightweight dresses and sandals, hair down with a flower crown, or in a more Parisian style, trés chic!
Well.... not today. It's raining, it's cloudy, very cloudy, very grey. I mean, it's July! Something's clearly wrong here!
But anyways, I had to run some errands, and , because it's supposed to be summer, pretty much all my warmer clothes were put away, so my options were not so many. However, I was able to build an outfit that is comfy, warm and very effortless wit the little only 2 fall/winter pieces of clothing!
I started off with a crisp white button up blouse, and a pair of light washed jeans, with a more loose fitting. I tucked in the blouse on one side and well, if it was a sunny day, I'd just put on sunglasses and sandals and I'd be out the door! But, for this particular day, that just wouldn't work.
I threw on a dark, gem-like, green cozy and droopy cardigan with a pair of black ankle booties, that worked perfectly with my rolled up jeans. Easy, right?
For my bag, a simple black bag just wasn't doing anything for me, so a black and white stripped bag spiced up the look for me.
As far as makeup goes, I didn't have much time at all, so my focus was mainly on my skin, lashes and lips. Powder foundation, rosy cheeks, big lashes (waterproof mascara, ALWAYS!) and a nice rosy lips should seriously be everyone's most simple and quick makeup look, I mean... it's just that easy!
