The weather has been holding up really well here in MN (the eight inches of snow I shoveled a week or two ago that looked like the picture below has melted away and left us with and even colder looking, barren, dull terrain). Which I guess I can’t complain about too much because hey, my car still starts and it’s still warm enough to not have to bust out my down parka. Win!
Anyway, weather aside, this outfit felt very “me” today. Just the right balance of thrift and new, and in some of my favorite staple colors: blue, gray, and brown. The brassy gold shell on my belt had me a little thrown off because it could read as really gawdy, but I love love LOVED the colors in the tapestry band. So pairing it with a more neutral, subdued palate made it work better in my book.
Something else a little new: I’ve been wearing my hair curly every few days. Just to shake things up I guess. I really like having something different to do with my hair, since I’m kind of limited due to its length. I’m always so in between with what I want, which definitely gets frustrating. Still haven’t decided if my next haircut will be a trim so I can grow it long enough to tie back, or whether I’ll go back to the short and funky asymmetrical style I used to have. Decisions, decisions!
Dress: Old Navy via my thrifty Auntie (I doubt she paid more than $5 for it – go Auntie!)
Sweater: Target clearance / Sea shell tapestry belt: Savers $2.99
Boots: definitely NOT clearance, but I love them!
Well, the night is still young, and I’ve got lots to accomplish in the next few hours. That, and I’m playing nurse to a sick boyfriend. Hope he recovers in time for his massive run of shows and gigs this December! 20+ shows in the next four weeks. Yikes! And I thought I was busy!
