one dress wonder

I loved reading through your comments on yesterday’s post! It looks like a lot of us are in some kind of major life transition, and we’re redefining our style in the process. We’ll figure it out together! Lately, I’m drawn to really simple outfits without a lot of extra “flair.” Dresses like this are perfect, because the statement print does all the work without needing a lot of accessories. You can keep it really easy…

prints charming

This is what I wore yesterday. Today I’m wearing jeans because I overslept — story of my life — and didn’t have time to shave my legs. I’m hating every sweaty, chafing minute of it and hereby declare that denim in the form of pants shall be banned through the remainder of summer, stubbly legs or not. For me, comfort is synonymous with crankiness, and I’m much more charming with bare legs in July. Know what else…

sack dress, take 2.

See: sack dress, take 1. I think I tried on six different belts with this dress today. It was a three little bears style dilemma.

new lengths

I’ve spent the last three weeks pinning hairstyles. Asymmetrical bobs, long layers, bangs, color and tutorials I’ll probably never try. I’ve waged a war with myself over that age-old question: To chop, or not to chop. I dragged Chad into the fray, showing him picture after picture of blown-out coifs and asking, “What do you think about this one? Too short? Bangs or no?” Patient and loving husband that he is, he humored me each time…

peachy pleats and topsy tails

  1992 called, and it wants its pony back! This was my mom’s go-to hairstyle for me in elementary school, followed closely by the french braid. Of the two, this is the only one I can recreate on my own as a grown-up. Somehow my french braid always comes out crooked and weirdly… inside-out? Check out Gal Meets Glam’s twisted ponytail post for simple instructions to recreate the throw-back yourself; no informercial “fashion hair tools” required.

blush and bashful

  Between the one-too-many glasses of wine I imbibed during last night’s girls night in and the foggy mental check-out that always comes before a good weekend getaway, I’m afraid I can’t come up with much to say this afternoon… {*awkward silence*} Speaking of awkward, see: unintentional air guitar pose in photo #4. {WEARING: Marshall’s dress; Charlotte Russe leopard cardigan (SIMILAR); vintage eel skin clutch; Nine West sandals (SIMILAR)}
