New Brass Prima Joggers review, thoughts on tinting my own eyebrows, and just some plain professor outfits!
Hello friends! Last week got off to a slow start in the land mirror selfies because I was busy writing on several projects. BUT! I did get the new Brass Prima Joggers in this pretty forest green color on Tuesday. I wore them with a black sweater and sneakers, plus this half up bun style that my partner finds divisive (haha wearing it anyway!).
Some notes on these joggers if you’re interested: They come in the Brass all day fabric which is my favorite fabric ever. It is COMPLETELY wrinkle-proof and lint proof and it’s my ideal travel fabric (not that I travel currently). I am wearing the 6 long in these joggers and know they’ll be a favorite for a long time because they complete my closet quest for more colors, especially colors that go well with other jewel tones!
If you’re interested in Brass you can get $25 off your first purchase using code REBECCA25. Ok onto other outfits!
I did get one more clothing package: This light blue blazer I spent Poshmark credit on. I wanted a lighter, cool tone blazer because all of my blazers are some shade of brown. I’m excited to wear this all spring! It’s originally from (where else) H&M. Now that I know their double-breasted blazers are the best (and true to size!) it’s quite easy to spot them when browsing secondhand!
Anyway, Wednesday and Thursday were pretty casual days where I was happy to reach for sweaters I love (white and tan, below), foolproof stretchy wfh pants (jeans, leggings) and shoes I can actually walk in (loafers!).
I got a lot done this week, work-wise, and was thankful for clothes I didn’t have to think too hard about. I know saying it was a productive week can come off braggy, but I’m trying to change my own narrative of work and this is part of it. Some weeks feel very productive. Others feel like a crawl. I’m attempting to remember that both types of week count as work and having a slow week doesn’t make you less legitimate as a worker. Ugh, pandemic thoughts. I guess my young adult brain always thought work was about doing the same amount of work every day for 5 days a week and I know that is unsustainable and also not realistic because tasks come and go. Still, I think I’m pretty harsh on myself about this. So, yes. This week was productive. Last week was slow. Both count as doing my work!
Also, Instagram friends know that I tinted my eyebrows. Thank you for witnessing that and I’m glad it wasn’t a complete disaster. Here’s a selfie I took for my mom if you want to see. I bought this kit on Amazon. Use vaseline to protect the skin around your eyebrows if you attempt it, the rest of the directions worked well! I can’t believe this is my eyebrows without any makeup on!
The last and best outfit because this is my COVID vaccine dose 2 outfit! I’m so excited and feeling fortunate that teachers are included in my state’s current phases. If you can’t get the vaccine yet I am rooting for you to be able to get it soon! This outfit feels a little retro pep rally to me but it’s made up of current favorites, including my beloved new cardigan, my fave work dress, and sneakers, always.
That’s all for the week! I hope you are doing well!
