Minimum effort

Somedays I just make an effort, 
a minimum effort to get dressed.

DKNY black jeans - Kenneth Cole top -
Kenneth Cole Reaction Bag - Michael Kors black flats.
Something simple, no magical outfit, 
no amazing combination - as I said minimum effort.
It works for me.


Now, I have come a long way - years ago when I worked at
an advertising agency I became so minimal in my effort
that I would wear the same eyeliner 2 days in a row.


Yes, this means that I would not wash my eyes properly 
so I would not have to do my eyeliner in the morning...
Now that it no effort.
Up until this day I wonder how I did that ...

LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Lorena, I've never heard your voice, but I can just imagine you saying this. You have such a dry sense of humor. It is too funny! Well you look minimally impeccable.

Been there, done that. ;) I know I've been grateful before when I've left the house wearing yesterday's make up and have run into somebody I know. I've actually heard of women who just keep adding more mascara every day though, never really taking it off, and that seems pretty icky to me.

I love the clean tops on that top!

I like minimal, sometimes I think we can go to over the top, when a white blouse and a well fitting jean is really one of the best looks there is.

Some days I can't be bothered to put much effort in either. Those are my curly hair days, when I can't be bothered to straighten it.

Haha, I've seriously been tempted to not wash off my makeup and just leave it for the next day...especially when I get my winged eyeliner look just right...sigh.
Anyway, love this simple yet chic look!
