what I wore; jean jacket obsessed

Thursday, June 07, 2012

the details
jacket - thrifted
shirt - gift from Kevin a few years back (?)
skirt - thrifted
camera bag - Brooklyn c/o ONA
shoes - Logue c/o Blowfish

I am loving this weather lately. It's been just perfect. It almost feels fall like! Now, I'm certainly not wishing away summer but I really enjoy being able wear a dress (or skirt and shirt in this case) and a light jacket. It's so comfortable! Plus I love any excuse to wear my jean jacket. It's like everything I've been putting on lately would look so swell with it. All my sweaters and cardigans have been ignored lately.

Thank you guys for all the amazingly sweet comments yesterday on my new hair and for Professor Stingray's birthday. I'm kind of blown away by all the kindness! You're going to have to forgive my crazy hair in these pictures - those are curls I was desperately trying to hold in with way too much hair spray hence the frizzy look. Believe it or not the pictures from the new hair post were actually taken after we got home from taking these. As soon as I brushed it out it went completely straight and looked smooth again. (My hair is naturally straight to a fault. It runs in the family. I can leave curlers in all night and within an hour or so it's flat again. Someday I'll learn to love it instead of fighting it!)

Well, I'm off! I'll be back a little bit later today with some film photos.
xoxo

  2. Have you ever tried using Curlformers curlers? Nothing I had ever used would curl my hair for longer than a few hours, but these can make my hair stay curly for days! They sell them at Sally's.

  4. It's always funny that people with straight hair want curls and people with curly hair want straight hair.

    You can have my curls anytime!

    I've learned to love my hair too, though that's partially due to the taming routine I figured out after years of experimenting;)

  9. I know your problem very well, my hair is also as straight as it can be. Some years ago I hated it but ten I discovered that all the others straighten her hair and keep hours in front of the mirror! Now I love to be ready in a few minutes ;)

    But back to your outfit: te sunglasses are really nice, it looks like they are made of wood ?!

  18. Still so in love with the hair. I love how you can make every piece of clothing look good! :) I bet if I wore some sort of dress, I would look like a slump (don't know if that's even a word...) I love your style!

  21. This is my favorite hair color combo I've ever seen! You did such a good job :) Very pretty.

  22. I share your straight hair pain! It doesn't matter how I curl it or how much hairspray I use. It's just not staying curled! The only thing that ever came close to working were these long foam curlers that you had to sleep in (NOT comfortable) that made me look like a frizzy poodle. :(

  23. Love the outfit, as always jealous of your jacket weather! Also those shoes are SO adorable!!! What great colors!

    My hair is also straight and fights curls, I've done some mighty damage in the past with the heat of a curling iron and loads of hair spray haha. Especially on my bleached hair (platinum at the time) and trying to do the Monroe curly locks. Aaah good times!

    Also thanks to Nicole, I'll look into those curlers too!

  25. I wish we could still wear jackets here in Texas. It's already in triple digits - but feels like 4 digit with the humidity ):

  26. I feel your pain about curls. I have straight thin hair so they never stayed in. *Sigh*

  27. Teehee I love your toes. I've been lamenting my naked toenails, but now I think I'll have to try something like that soon.

  28. You have the most adorable style! :) You have such a knack for picking out cute clothing pieces, even at thrift stores!! :D And your hair is gorgeous.

  29. I have the same stick straight hair ugh. sometimes its really nice because if you had thick curly hair it would be hard to deal with also. I have used overnight rollers for curls and they stayed all the next day! It was so awesome, maybe just wait for half dried hair and lots of product to try again.

  34. love the darker streak in your bangs! i could NEVER curl my hair until i finally decided to try a curling wand. i was nervous i wouldn't be coordinated enough because i couldn't ever use a regular curling iron but i'm glad i gave it a shot. after like two tries i had curls for days (then softer waves later in the week!). most even have precise temperature control so if you are worried about any kind of heat damage you can curl hair on a lower setting. yikes, i sound like a commercial but i just thought maybe it could work for you? either way, your hair is gorgeous so it doesn't really matter what ya do with it!

  35. I have a jeans jacket that's probably 5 years old that I can't stop wearing. :) It's perfectly broken in and goes with everything. By the way, I LOVE your hair and your colorful toes. :)

  42. YES! Jean jackets forever. I have one denim jean, and one pink denim jacket. You should do a denim outfit post! All denim, all the time. Lookin' good, lady.

    If you can't get your hair to hold curl, you should try using a different product that is light (since it seems like you have finer hair) but that has more hold to it. If you want any product suggestions, let me know! I work at a hair salon during the day, so I dream about hair products and I have a bunch of personal tip.
