A pair of black leggings is a must-have. Most women I know have one or two pairs that they keep in rotation regularly, no matter what time of year it is. I have two plain black pairs, but when I saw this mesh version, I couldn’t pass them up. Yes, they are best suited for athleisure, but I wanted to wear them with my summer sandals, and I think it turned out okay. 🙂
If you’d like your own pair, you can score them HERE for only $13. (Which is much more budget friendly than buying them in the fancy yoga pant store, right?)
And did you notice my suede tote? This baby is my new love. It’s soft and has a beautiful braided leather handle, and it looks pretty with everything! It’s a perfect day bag, travel bag, and work bag all in one. It’s my first handbag from Joyn, and I’m super impressed with the quality and beauty of the bag. It’s handmade in India, and the company seeks to bring steady work, daily meals, education, and medical assistance to the employees there. JOYN bags aren’t mass-produced; REAL people make them. When I stop and think about where my purchases come from, it makes me feel good buying a handbag like this one because I’m supporting craftsmen and women who are working hard for their families. The bag has handwritten signatures of the artists whose hands created it, and I love that! It’s a great reminder that what we buy affects the lives of other people. And did I mention that Joyn bags are a great price? This tote is genuine suede and leather, and is only $126!
Last, but not least, I wanted to share a moisturizer that pulls doubly duty by including a serum in it. The L’Oréal Revitalift Serum + Moisturizer is awesome. On the mornings when I’m running behind and don’t have time to do every step of my skincare routine, this has become a time saver. It keeps my skin hydrated and the serum smooths out any lines. Instead of having to wait for my serum to sink into my skin and then apply moisturizer, I can just slather this on and go straight to my makeup routine. I noticed a lot of people who wrote reviews on this product use it as their night skincare routine, which would work great, too. Give it a try!
Thursday is a wrap…see you tomorrow….
