Weekday Casual Outfit: Monochromatic In Blue Grays + Food and Weight Journal

I'm pretty much all one shade today...and some days I like that.  I am crazy about this nice quality, soft, Chico's t-shirt that I picked up for only $1!  Also love the feel of this ever so thin cardigan.  Another element I like in this outfit are the flats.  They're gray on the sides and then a metalic silver gray on top.  I kept the accessories minimal and included silver earrings that my mother gifted me with many years ago.

This outfit was worn to pick up cosmetics at the drug store and then to a quick doctor appt.

I specifically needed new foundation and the one I wear was buy one get one 50% I did.  I wear Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid make up medium beige 80 w/ spf 20.  This is pretty lightweight and dewy.  My skin is really dry so I can't wear anything heavy or cakey.

Under my foundation I wear Nivea Creme skin moisturizer.  My skin just soaks this up and loves it.  Some people find it too greasy or it causes them to break out.  But my skin loves it.  My husband actually discovered it a couple of years ago when he was looking for something for his dry skin and bought 10 1 oz containers of it online.  He tried it, but didn't like it and I took it all.  It's the best facial moisturizer I've ever used for my dry skin.  I also now use Nivea Essentially Enriched Daily Lotion for very dry, rough skin on the rest of my body. it!  These are 2 of my "couldn't live without it" products.  Another of those is my Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes.  Very moisturizing and easily takes off my mascara and other makeup.
Do you have any "can't live without" beauty products?

  1. you look lovely and that dinner looks tasty!

  2. I love your outfit. Gray is one of my neutrals that I wear quite a bit. I am really excited to hit up on of my favorite thrift stores over in Kalispel, Montana next week while we are on vacation. I find some of the nicest high end things there at great prices.

    1. Have a great time on vacation and thrifting, Debbie.

  3. I am wondering if there is any color at all you couldn't wear. Every color looks amazing on you Lisa. You can wear just anything. Wow!

    Sorry for being late. I had no internet for the past three days.


    1. So sorry to hear about your internet problems, Lenya. That can be very frustrating.

  4. Really nice outfit, Lisa. Some days just call for the monochromatic look and you do it well.

    How much space do I have to list my "can't live without beauty products"? At my age, I need all the help I can get! lol ;-)
    I love Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair and won't go without it. The product was recently updated and I think it works even better, if that's possible.

    1. I should probably use something special as a night cream. I don't do enough "repair" work. haha

  5. Beautiful you and lovely food, Lisa.

  6. Those shoe simply tie it all together. Very pretty on you.

  7. Prześlicznie Ci w szarościach. Ja nie mogę nosić tego koloru. Pozdrawiam ciepło!
