Hot Mess Express

Wearing – Top: Anthropologie {old} | Pants: Old Navy | Shoes: BCBGeneration | Earrings: ILY Couture | Bracelets: Olive + Piper | Watch: Vince Camuto | Purse: c/o Shopbop

So let's say there's this fashion blogger who went out of town last weekend and as she was packing to come back to Indy she completely forgot all of her face care products and her makeup. Yeah, that fashion blogger is me and let me just tell you, having all of your favorite products three hours away is definitely not convenient when trying to get ready in the morning. At least I had backup mascara, BB cream and Fresh lip balm to save the day.

With my lack of makeup, I definitely wasn't feeling like I was on my A-game getting ready each day, but I still managed to put together a cute outfit. Even sans makeup, this top is still a personal favorite–even though I can't make the fold lines disappear to save my life. Gah! Toot-toot...all aboard the Hot Mess Express this week!

    1. Thanks girl! I've had this top for quite some time and this is only the second time I've worn it. Ha!

  2. Ugh! I feel your pain. However, I may have been THAT girl who sought out a Walgreens/CVS and racked up a $25 tab to get enough makeup to cover me til I got home/found said bag. But still- it's all about the style- and you are crushing it here!

    1. I considered it. I spent my 3-hour car ride home debating back and forth about what I could buy that would tide me over until I got my toiletries back. Ha! I opted for using old product I had. Wah-wah!

    1. Thanks Megan! I actually purchased it at Anthropologie on sale. Definitely a great buy, even if I don't get to wear it that often.

    1. Thanks Zelle! I definitely didn't feel like myself at all, but I realized I don't always need my full face of makeup to have a great day.

    1. Thanks Silvia! I'm a big fan of stripes, so the top had to have a home in my closet.

  7. You look great with the minimal make up look! I hate when I leave my things other places it is the worst!!

    1. Thanks Emily! I have psoriasis so I'm totally reliant on my makeup to cover up my splotches, but I definitely liked the minimal look. Thanks for stopping by Emily!

  8. Oh no! That would not be fun because it's not like you can run to the store and replace all of that. Love your outfit!

    1. It was not fun, at all. But I managed to squeak though until my sister came back to Indianapolis with my makeup. Ha!

    1. Thanks Rachel! I think I learned that I don't need a face full of makeup to still feel like myself.
