Spring fresh

In 2006 I had a bad experience. A bad hair experience.

April 23, 2014

I think I'm finally over it. I cut my hair the shortest it's been in eight years. I kind of love it.

I like it. But I keep overpouring shampoo! 
Today I'm thankful for change. Even if it's scary.

Nighttime fancytime

Ok so here's the nighttime look.

apr 4 2014 night

Sadly all the photos include my phone as I was trying to change the time of the reservation so as to provide more time for drinking 1/2 price wine at mystery location number one.

Today I'm thankful for sparkles. And unabashedly loving them.

Day time glamour

When I was younger I couldn't have imagined that I would like glittery clothes. Too girly. Too full on. Just too much.

apr 4 2014

Now I can't get enough. I'm like a large, articulate raccoon.

This top is actually a dress. I was trying to do a day to night thing for an early date night.

Here we go

I'm pretty happy with how much 'Sexy Librarian' these glasses give me.

march 2014

And also, totally unrelatedly, House is on Netflix now. Which means that I'm pretty sure everyone I know has Lupus and needs a Lumbar Puncture.

Today I'm thankful for sass. I wish I had more of it.

Snuffle Shuffle

Ugh. Being sick is the worst.

I showed up to work today and my boss took one look at me and sent me home. Because I look like hell... but she did say she liked my outfit so I thought it deserved a photo before I crawled into bed.

dress: Joe Fresh
boots: Brekelle's
scarf: gift
glasses: Dolce & Gabana

Today I'm thankful for Kleenex. And tea. And sleeping.

Business in the front

Once upon a time I saw some boots on the internet. They were sparkly. They were also like $200. I figured that I could do it for much cheaper.

True story. I love how they've turned out. Construction work in the front. Fairy princess in the back!

They don't shed a lot of glitter but every now and then I can see a little gold sparkle winking up at me from the floor. It's like my own personal yellow brick road. Or glittery bread crumbs... I can always find my way back home.

cardigan: Joe Fresh
top: Ricki's
jeans: Cleo
boots: Joseph Seibel, glitter DIY
scarf: market in Cambodia
glasses: Dolce & Gabana

Today I'm thankful for making it work!

I forgot that I owned a pink dress. I pinned this image:

Weekday Errands


And rifled through my closet to come up with an approximation. I did not realize this was a maternity outfit... awkward.

mar 24/14

I've always wanted a jean jacket but until then I'll have to make do with a chambray top.

top: Ricki's
dress: Joe Fresh
leggings: LuLu Lemon
boots: Ayla
bracelet & necklace: gifts

Today I'm thankful for lost closet items.
