Casual Friday: Winter White & Jeans

This week I've been all about clothes that feel like pajamas. For some reason it's just been really hard to wake up in the morning this week, and the last thing I've wanted to do is wear uncomfortable clothes. Earlier in the week I wore my burgundy knit blazer (the knit material has more stretch to it and isn't as constricting as some of my other blazers) and now today I wore my new Old Navy sweater to work under a blazer. It not only kept me warm in my frigid office, but I was just that much more comfortable and relaxed. It ended up being one of those work days where you get SO MUCH done and the day flies by. I attribute this fully to being comfortable at work, and not the fact that I am just an exceptionally fast worker, haha. What do you wear to work when you don't want to get out of bed in the morning?
Blazer: Zara (similar)
Sweater: Old Navy (20% off with ONAPRIL20)
Jeans: 7FAM (similar)
Booties: Sam Edelman (similar)
Necklace: Banana Republic (similar)
Bag: B. Makowsky
In beauty product related news, I went to Sephora 2 weekends ago to try to act dumb and get free samples of primer. Not only did I get a sample of Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, but they also gave me a few samples of the Smashbox BB Cream. I've been wearing that as a primer the last 2 days and I love the glow/color it gives me that the regular primer doesn't. I also want to correct myself - in an earlier post I said that the Monistat Chafing Gel wasn't staying on as well as the Smashbox primer sample that I had tried. Well, this may be true, but it turns out the sample I had was for the Smashbox Primer Light, which is NOT the "dupe" for the Chafing Gel. When I got the sample from Sephora I realized the Gel is the dupe for the regular Smashbox primer - and it truly is. It feels exactly the same going on the skin and has the same longevity and results. Ideally I'd like something that keeps my dryness from showing all day, but so far nothing works to combat that.
