OOTD: April Showers bring May Flowers.

     Well- this post is a first! Minus the lip gloss that I'm wearing (and a tiny dab of concealer on my chin), I am completely make-up free in these pictures! That is a first for any of my outfit pictures on this blog! As y'all know, I absolutely love make-up; buying it, experimenting with it, watching tutorials, wearing it... etc etc. But as much as I do enjoy make-up, I am still confident in my own skin. I do wear it most days, but not everyday! I happened to have a make-up free day last week, and got the idea to take a few blog pictures while that happened. I do go out in public without make-up sometimes. I'll run errands around town or if I'm at school I'll go to the cafeteria or library without it on the weekends. Overall, I prefer wearng make-up because I think it's fun and a way to enhance my features, but I wanted to show y'all that I'm also comfortable in my natural state. I'd love to see any make-up free OOTD pictures from any other bloggers as well! (Fun fact: the part of my face that I'm most self conscious about without make-up is actually my eyebrows! I fill them in with a pencil and brow gel normally. )

     Maine has been having a really slow start to the warmer season. The past couple weeks have been in the 50s and 60s, and mostly cloudy and rainy. At least all of the rain is making all of the plants and trees look extra pretty and green! I'm hoping that warmer weather will be around the corner soon. At least I've had lots of excuses to wear my cute floral rain boots! :-)

     Hope that y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

  1. Love love love this OOTD. I am not sure which part I love the most but I am obsessed with your headband and rainboots. You look awesome with no makeup.

  2. I love your shirt and cardigan combination

  3. Your flower headband is so adorable! While I love makeup, I often go without makeup a few times a week - though filling in my eyebrows is almost always a must no matter what! I'm so self-conscious about them, too!!!
