what I wore : kung fu queenWednesday, June 22, 2016
belt - vintage (similar but with bees!)
sandals - Saltwater Sandals (basically a summer must-have!)
Sooo, my hair is getting long! Woo! Finally! Compared to a lot of people this isn't really all that long at all but for the past probably at least fifteen years I've been rocking some kind of short-ish bob. I LOVE getting my hair cut. I normally start to feel real anxious and like my hair isn't pretty at all if I don't keep my cut maintained but for some reason earlier this year I decided I wanted to see what it would be like a little bit longer. For a few months it just felt like it looked the same then all of a sudden one day I looked in the mirror and was like "whaaaat!? where did this all come from?!" Actually the last few times I've shared outfit photos I feel like I'm also sharing a new look just because my hair feels so different. I'm so happy with how it looks, especially curled! I'm sure the urge to cut it will come on randomly and I'll have to cave but I am living for it right now.
Other "new" things, this dress. It's been in my closet a while. I was considering selling it because even though it's super cute and fits well it's just a hair too short. It's sheer and underneath is a slip except the slip is just not long enough at all, like booty almost showing even while you're standing still. I've never been huge on wearing shorts underneath dresses just because it always feels like a clunky addition to an outfit but for some reason I tried on a pair I wear around the house and yeah, this dress is definitely not leaving my possession anytime soon. I wore this outfit downtown to watch the Cavs win (seriously, best night ever!) and on our walk there I told Jeff "I feel like I could do kung fu in this outfit!" I don't exactly know how to explain what that means but I certainly hope you've experienced the same thing in something you've worn even if you wouldn't describe it the same way. It's like feeling really attractive but like you could still totally whoop some butt if anyone crossed you. So, strong, sexy, and confident? It's a great feeling, and I will probably be wearing this dress all summer long, only taking it off to wash it.
Hope you're having an awesome week!
