A Casual Day Downtown

I wanted a few things to boost my skincare routine and one of my friends said she got a ton of products from this Korean skincare line. The store was downtown in Santee Alley. I had never been so I thought I'd venture down and see what it was. 

It was one of the craziest places I've been. It was streets filled with food, shops, stands, and so many vendors. It was all tucked in a few small intersections of pedestrian streets. To say it was chaotic is an understand but it was also really interesting. 

I just re-injured my knee from when I torn my meniscus a year and a half ago so I've been wearing a super stylish brace when walking around a lot. I wore my silk Equipment shirt dress in red. If you read my posts, you should know I love red so much. In fact, I plan on doing a video soon about why you should Iove red too and ways incorporate it in your wardrobe. 

I kept the accessories neutral and easy. I wore a high bun just to make sure I was able to keep cool. Mostly, I wore a high bun because I was too lazy to get the hot tools out and do my hair. Here is the outfit. It is pretty basic but let me know what you think. 

Question Of The Week 11.22.14

What are small things that make you feel grateful/thankful? 


"A cup of Earl Grey tea kind of one of those small pleasures that remind you of how much all the little things really brighten your day. It is a luxurious tiny cup of liquid that allows me to pause for moments of reflection... Just that moment with a warm mug in your hand and the feeling it brings." - Rachael Forster 

"I have so much to be grateful for and I try to appreciate all the little things in life that make me happy so it's so hard to choose! I am grateful I get to go to yoga everyday. I am grateful for my morning cup of coffee. Recently my favorite part of my day has been my morning mediation led by Deepak & Oprah- I can't think of a better way to start my day, it always puts me in a happy, inspired state of mind and excitement to start the day." -Steph Sidwell
