Simple Style Friday
Friday November 09, 2012
Today’s outfit -
- Madewell Honeycomb Sweater
- Madewell Rail Straight denim
- F21 Wool Coat
Every Friday my office does “Casual Friday.” Meaning you can wear jeans. I don’t wear my jeans much. I’m more comfortable in skirts/dresses. However this denim by Madewell is so, so, so soft and relaxed fitting I found myself in the mood to wear them. This wool coat I’ve had for probably 6 years now. Every year I think I’ll replace it but in the end it still looks in good enough shape to keep so, maybe eventually.
It’s already hitting upper 30°F outside in recent weeks. Winter is setting is fast. Already my skin is drying out faster than I can switch to “winter lotion mode.” So I bought this the other day to help my chapping fingertips.
The soap at work is extremely drying and so are the permanently set “scolding hot water” faucets. But nevertheless my skin gets extra dry this time of year anyway. My usual lotion routine wasn’t help offset the dry skin this time so I picked this Burt’s Bees up.
I like it.
The packaging is so pleasing aesthetically. Reminds me of the old Bag Balm tins my mom always used. The cream is very supple and the subtle sweet almond milk scent is nice. It doesn’t leave my fingers too greasy either. It’s beginning to help some. I need more time to really know if it’s a complete fix. Burt’s Bees has a lot of dry hand repair options I’d like to try. :deco3:
