WIW - More boyfriend, less makeup + Upcoming Haircut/trim

I've been at home the past two days with my daughter who had stomach flu. It was the first time I have experienced that and lets just say it was not one of the most pleasant motherhood experiences. Poor Kiddo. She is ok now, and back to work I go.

Of course being out of routine for a couple of days always leaves openings for errors. Today's error was that somehow my makeup bag fell out of my work tote. I always take 5 minutes when I get to the office to do my hair and makeup and snap pics. It's much quicker if I do it that way because I can do it uninterrupted. No makeup bag today. I did have an assortment of lippies in my purse so I added gloss. I thought it was the best choice considering I wasn't wearing anything else.

I decided to wear my BF jeans again today with another one of the tops I got at Macys for a casual look.

My hair is getting too heavy, I need to do something with it. I think I will get it trimmed this weekend. I am liking the length ok. I was thinking to leave the front length as is, but re-do the inverting so it's a couple inches shorter in back. Then I was going to have them trim up the layers a bit to lighten it up, and get my side bangs trimmed back a little. Does that sound like a good plan?

Necklace - Gift
Top - American Rag from macys
Belt - Talbots
BF Jeans - KUT from Nordstrom

    Oh, I think that this is SUPER cute. I'm SOOO sorry about the stomach flu. It doesn't get much worse than that. At least you didn't get it.

    Ooh, no, that's not a fun part of being a parent, is it? Poor baby; poor mama!

    You look very pretty here! You don't need a lot of makeup to look gorgeous :)

    I don't know much about curly hair, but I am looking forward to seeing your new style!

    You look just fine without the makeup. So sorry to hear about your daughter, and glad that you didn't get sick too. And you are so right, that is not one of the cherished moments in the motherhood file

    You look great! I've been living in the formula of statement top + clams or bermudas. I don't have boyfriend jeans, at least yet, but you are rocking yours! As for the makeup --- how wonderful that you have been given such beautifully balanced features -- large eyes and beautiful, clean brows. No worries!

    Hope your daughter is fully recovered!

    Who needs makeup? You look great even without it. Love how the jeans showcase those pretty sandals!

    So sorry to hear about your little one --it's hard to see them sick. Glad she is better now.

    I love your BF outfit! That shade of red is great on you and I like how your gloss complements your shirt.
