Since learning that L’Oreal products are not cruelty free, I’ve been on the hunt for a mascara to replace the L’Oreal telescopic that I used to use. After reading a number of positive reviews I decided to order Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara. Tarte products are cruelty free and formulated without parabens, mineral oils, and all the other nasties.
Coats and jackets have long been a favourite wardrobe item of mine. My collection is rather large and includes winter coats, faux fur, a Yukon parka, jean jackets, trenches, suede, and my leather jacket, which is one of my most prized possessions. If you challenged me to pick a favourite style I think I would have to go with moto jackets.
In my work wardrobe basics post I mentioned that fact that I think a black skirt is a must-have. Mine gets worn three to four times per week. I would argue that it’s one of the hardest working pieces in my closet.
I’ve pulled together four different looks to give you some inspiration for styling a black skirt for the office. If skirts aren’t your thing I think black pants could easily be subbed in.
I’m on a shopping ban at the moment, however, I still have a running wish-list. When I do finally buy a few things I’ll refer to the list so that I stay on track and don’t end up with any unused pieces.
My original idea for this post was to talk about body positivity, but I think self love and acceptance is a more accurate description of what I have in mind. The thing I struggle with most is aging. We live in a youth obsessed society. It’s think it’s common for people, especially women, to feel less and less relevant as they age. I notice this particularly within the blogging and influencer community. Everyone seems to be younger than me!
