mood: chillin

This feels like I'm wearing pajamas and requires zero styling because everything goes and it looks great with no jewelry. Do you have a black romper? Here are options if you don't: sleeveless ruffle, cold shoulder, off shoulder, short sleeve scalloped, more cute options than you could ever imagine. On me: sleeveless ruffle,  L.K.Bennett leather wedge, also nice are these tan flat sandals that remind me of the Hermès Oran Everlane, vintage family Nantucket basket bag. Moodsey is about sharing not selling and does not receive proceeds from purchase of these recommended brands....

IN THE MOOD NON TOXIC SKINCARE & MAKEUP

As you know from several of my posts like Cosmetics Chemical Truth, I am a non toxic brand pioneer and champion, having started one 9 years ago. This makes me really picky as shown with my post about Gwyneth Paltrow's goop Juice Beauty being elitist in pricing. Now, there are many non toxic beauty product brands. Beautycounter products, for example, include none of the chemicals I avoid. They are priced lower than goop Juice Beauty, Tata Harper, Kjaer Weis; yet higher than W3ll People, Burt's Bees, Yes to Carrots, Shea Moisture, Dr. Bronner's, S.W.Basics, and similar to Jurlique, RMS, REN clean skincare, BITE beauty, ILIA makeup, Smith & Cult nail polish, Nonesuch, Makanai, Josie Maran, Honest Beauty....

MOOD: FRUSTRATED where did my gym mojo go?

I've stolen my teen's "beats" headphones and church was selfishly used Christmas eve, as I desperately seek any and all divine intervention. Here are AJR's "Weak" song lyrics that inspired this post. "Am I weak? And what's wrong with that. Boy oh boy I love you when I fall for that. My habits they call me like a grudge. But I give in so easily. And no thank you is how it should go. I should stay strong, but I'm weak and what's wrong with that boy oh...

IN THE MOOD SHINY TRENCH (MARKS&SPENCER, ALEXA CHUNG)

It arrived today and I love how shiny this trench is! However, it's small and too cool for me. At least that's what I thought, until my husband told me I was wrong. Does anyone else buy clothes that are too big and too basic for comfort? I clearly am making this mistake. It's likely aging the way we look more than we realize. The trench is a high-shine polyurethane patent leather look coat pictured above on me. I don't like posting pictures of myself but seeing an unusual trend on someone who isn't a young perfect model is realistic and hopefully helpful. The Briggate trench is from the Marks & Spencer collaboration with Alexa Chung a popular British fashionista....
