Some Favorites

I don't know if I'm cut out for the "fashion blogger" thing. For one thing, I don't feel like I spend a lot of time putting my outfits together. Second, I feel weird posting pictures of myself in outfits. I do, however, enjoy having documentation of the things I wear at this point in my life. My memory is so bad that I wouldn't remember otherwise. I'm going to try it a few more times...but I may stick to photographing other people :)

I always end up being really critical of how I look in my "outfit photos." Maybe it's a good thing for me to do this and learn to be ok with the little imperfections that jump out at me. I mean everybody is probably seeing the dirty shed before they see my double chin anyway.

Random: When I got my hair cut the other day, Diane told me that if I don't use heat on my hair for a year, I'll end up with more curl. I don't know where she heard it, but I think I want to try it. I haven't used heat for a week, so we'll see if it will last. I've never cared much about how my hair looks, so I don't think it will be hard. Right now I just have a tiny bit of wave, so I'm hoping I will have a nice bounce after a year! Has anyone else heard this before?

shirt: Simply Vera at Kohls
jacket: SJP Bitten (from Heather)
necklace: Forever 21
pants, watch: Target
shoes: Marshall's (they're too big)

This jacket is so amazing BUT it's soooo small on me. Heather was giving it away at a clothing swap and I couldn't resist even though she's like half my size. I decided that I didn't care it was too small...raising your arms is over-rated. And the pants are my favorite work pants. I searched high and low for the perfect pair of slim black pants with just the right fabric and fit. I finally just gave up after 2 failed pairs and a useless trip to the tailor. Then a few days later I'm strolling through Target and I happen upon the perfect pair. And the kicker? Only $12. Seriously?! I was excited and annoyed all at once. Why didn't I just look there in the first place? You know you always find things when you stop looking <3

I think you look great, too! But I feel ya on being overly critical of yourself. I'm the same way. I have lots of tips for getting your hair to be curlier. Mine is wavy like yours, but I manage to make it curly. I'll do a post on it this week to avoid writing a book in your comment box! :]
