I have said, “I would never go out in public without showering and putting makeup on.” I have also been known to say that it takes no more effort to look pulled together than to walk out the door looking frumpy.
So imagine my shock when it dawned on me the other morning that every day I DO go out the door without makeup. Not only do I go without makeup… I do not comb my hair.
Every morning I roll out of bed at 5:00 A.M. and put on my workout gear and head to the gym. I have very fine wispy hair so when I walk into the gym and nod at my fellow gym goers my hair is always askew. It probably doesn’t matter regarding my hair because in about 5 minutes it is plastered to my head from sweat. And, I’m usually wiping the sweat off my face with my shirt… I’m classy like that.
So really, wearing makeup wouldn’t make any difference anyways. However, I would never go out without making an effort to make sure that my outfit (street or gym) looks good.
Has anyone else done something after claiming, “I would never… ”?

Rockledge Mansion sits up on a hill and overlooks the town of Occuquan.
|Rockledge Mansion (circa 1760) is one of the oldest dwellings in Occoquan.|
The house and landscaping consists of lovely old stone and I thought that it would make a wonderful contrasting back drop for my outfit; contrasting the feminine lace and pastel of my outfit against the rugged rocks of the beautiful mansion.

|My favorite TAHARI shoes and CHARMING CHARLIE'S belt|
This is one of my favorite thrift finds. I have been searching forever for a lace skirt at my price point and in a color that I liked. A friend and I went to a local thrift shop on our lunch break and I found this beauty for only $19.99.

Today was such a gorgeous day that my guy and I decided to walked down to our little town.
|Charming Store Front|
|Little Stairwell to the Gallery|
|View of the Occoquan River|
|Amazing how empty the street looks in this photo... there were a |
lot of people walking around in their Easter finery checking out the little
shops and/or waiting for dinner reservations at the waterfront restaurant.
|Borrowed my guy's hat and wearing a thrifted silk |
dress (GILLIAN) from Goodwill that I picked up for $5.99
|At a table in front of our local bakery/coffee shop called SUGAR BUZZ. |
They just opened about a month ago.

|My guy made my necklace for me. He is so handsome and handy.|
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
