My Morning Skin Care Routine

I am not a skin care expert, but I play one with my friends. Nothing brings me more joy than a girlfriend texting me from Sephora with a question about which products she should buy; it validates all the hours I spent buried in skin care blogs and YouTube videos in my early 30s, when I started to panic a bit about aging and wanted to lock down a serious routine.

@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
