Summer Pale






top: Laundry | belt: vintage | shorts: Abercrombie | heels: Zara

I purposely went for a muted nude look with this outfit--I wanted pale.  I expected pale.  But when I looked at the photos, I thought to myself "Wow...PALE."  

Honestly, I think that the paleness in these particular photos is mainly due to camera and lighting trickery (this isn't denial. I. Swear.) I admittedly am not known to spend much time outdoors though...although I do begrudgingly apply my separate SPF everyday anyways.

Wearing sunblock is not fun.  I advocate it and insist upon it--but my reaction to putting it on my face everyday is definitely ughughugh.  I previously was using a sunblock that started off well, but then our relationship went greasily awry.  And so, the search continues.


Issa and I recently attended a Clarins event that centered around their re-formulated Double Serum, which I had actually been curious about for a while after reading a number of positive reports. Besides being a SPF advocate I'm also a big (and not at all begrudging) serum advocate.   Hearing their serum gospel from Christopher Truffa was fantastic, but he had a gospel truth that even trumped their star serum.  "The best thing you can put on your skin is SPF!"  Of course.  Of course it is.  

And so, the search continues...
