necklace - c/o Shlomit Ofir

Perhaps I was kind of jumping the gun a little with this outfit but it was what I thought was the first day of spring (alas, I was actually a week early! Haha!) Showing some skin and wearing something bright and floral was kind of a necessity after the long winter. It was maaaaybe a little bit windier than I had anticipated but SPRING!  It's funny how 50 degrees after winter is so warm, but at the end of summer it's freezing. It felt so good to ditch some of the layers that had become necessity. I'm looking forward to many more days of bare legs.

Underneath this gorgeous skirt I'm wearing my first petticoat. I picked out this one from Unique Vintage. I've actually wanted one for a while but for one reason or another just never picked one up. First of all, this skirt looks so darn cute all fluffed up. It looked cute without it but with the extra volume it's just perfect. Secondly, it is darn fun to twirl in a petticoat. I spent the majority of my day just swinging my hips back and forth. I actually took some really cute photos of me flashing the petticoat for this post but I was a little too good at flashing if you know what I mean. Haha. Oh well, I'm sure it's not the last time I'll be wearing it!

In the few days since my haircut I have come to love it, like super duper love it. Jeff described it as "your old hair version 2.0" which is pretty true. The hairdresser was a bit crass, putting down the photo I had come in with with such venom, but she apparently is pretty darn skilled and knew what would look awesome on my head.  It's so darn pretty. I have pin straight hair, I come from pin straight hair. It's rare my hair has an volume, and it's pretty thin so it never really looks good long. But this haircut makes my hair do everything I want it to.  Seriously, that first photo of my hair that is my dream hair! I guess change is pretty good after all!

Hope you have an excellent day!
xoxo

  1. I really love your hair and outfit! I too do the clashing patterns thing. People may think it's a big no no but I like it :) Wish it was more spring like where I live can't wait to go out in my new skirts I bought last week.

  7. LOVE THE HAIR!!

    Also, I had a HILARIOUS dream the other night that I got to hang out with you as you came thru NC on a road trip. We went grocery shopping together and bought this funny blue soft drink that was SUPER fizzy and we drank it while eating donuts that were covered in plaid icing. Then I showed you a book of fancy artyphotos I had taken (I don't even shoot pics besides on my phone and that's mostly food and my cat!) Wild techincolor dream!

  8. Your outfit is gorgeous!! Your hair really compliments the look. :)
    I used to have thin/ fine hair, but after my last haircut (a bob) I started eating lots of avocado and my hair is actually thicker now with more volume.

  9. The outfit is so cute! I've always wanted to try a petticoat. Love the pattern mixing, it works really well. The first thing I noticed was your hair. The cut looks so good!

  10. Haha, I don't think they clash! As Stacy & Clinton on "What Not to Wear" would say: "They go." ;)

    And I'm in agreement, that top picture of your hair is... incredible. 100% my dream short hair. The layers are perfect, they give it such texture and volume. Love!

  12. I'm loving your new hair cut, it is so pretty! I've been thinking of chopping my hair off. I don't think I'm ready just yet. I know what you mean with 50 degrees feeling warm. 30 degrees here in Minnesota is actually pretty nice after a very, very long winter! :)

    1. Oh yeah, I was pretty pumped about our 30 degree days when they started showing up. So weird how it works like that. 30 is still REALLY cold.

  19. This outfit looks beautiful on you! I don't know if I could pull off crop tops because my torso is so short!

    1. You know, I had THE hardest time finding crop tops that were long enough because my torso is so long. I have tried on so many crop tops that were WAY too short. It's just all about finding the right one! :)
