Pretty Girl

Just couldn't help but share this cute picture my stylish little sister Tati sent me.  Look how sexy and pretty she is with that candy colored hair! I can't wait to make her a "guest model" the next time she is in town.  :)

Green Jeans!

I’ve been dying to show off my new green GAP jeans, so here they are!  I wore then with a blue Urban Outfitters top that I have had for a couple of years with a target tank underneath, and my brown leather boots that my friend Kimmi gave me last year.
Colored pants can be surprisingly easy to wear.  They fit so well that I bought these same jeans in hot pink too (a blog post for another day) and they look awesome with a long black sweater and my black riding boots. 
As always, if you wear something in a bright color or an unusual fit, own it and it will look bold, not crazy!  If you look comfortable in your clothes, as well as your own skin, you can’t help but t look good. 
So be brave and try something new today.  I dare you!

New Haircut!

So, I made the chop!  I am also back to my natural hair color, although in the first two pictures I have, my hair still looks pretty red. I didn't cut it myself this time, but I did do some trimming around the edges myself.  As you can see in the first two pictures, it was kind of sticking out funny around my ears. 

I really like it!  It's so fun to have short hair again.  Plus, I just wash it, add some salt spray for texture and go!  My mornings are so easy!  I know short hair isn't for everyone, but I love it.  Lucky for me, my husband does too!  :) 

I used John Freda foam hair dye for the first time to go back to brown.  So easy!  I highly recommend it.

Preview of the future...

Me with short hair right before my wedding, with my natural hair color.  :)  Lucky me, my husband loves my hair short too!  

My next haircut

I have loved short hair on women ever since I aw Audrey Hepburn get the chop in Roman Holiday...

...and then again in Sabrina.  

Ever since the flappers announced their independence by cutting off their curls in the 1920's, short hair on women has represented elegance, freedom from conformity, and the height of fashion.

I'll admit, I think that I am probably more beautiful when I have long hair, but I feel more special and unique when my hair is short.  Dare I even After all, I live in a state where every girl I see has hair way past their shoulders.  I like to stand out!

So, it looks like I am going to fail at growing it out again, and get the chop Audrey style just as soon as I can afford to get it done (and as soon as I get up the nerve to make the commitment).

I've even already got my hair inspiration all picked out- exhibit A: Ginnifer Goodwin's cute crop.  Plus, she and I have a similar face shape and hair type, so I think this cut will work well on me as well.  Pretty darn cute, right? :)
