outfit a day

What’s this absurdity? A different background? Whaaa?

Blame it on my neighbor who was doing yard work in her front  yard…I wasn’t about to start posing in front of her. Awkward! So we found a little corner in our backyard that wasn’t too ugly. (though it’s pretty ugly) Someday it will be finished and look nice! (ditto on my posing. haha!) My skirt I found thrifting for a few dollars, and had to cut off about 8″ to hem it to a normal length on me. I know I’m short but that seemed excessive…but, also kind of normal for me.

I know you already totally noticed, but…I got a haircut. Well, most of them cut, actually. ;P I went a little shorter than usual because…..drumroll….I got rid of all the blond! My mom cut off all of the blond that I’d been growing out for….awhile. It’s nice having my natural color back, but I miss having highlights. What I don’t miss is the upkeep, expense….yadda yadda. So I think I’ll stay au-naturale for now.

Try not to laugh too hard at how tiny my head looks in this picture. I blame Sadie’s shortness, which in turn puts the blame back on me, since she got her height deficiencies from me, I’m sure.

  3. cute outfits, I especially like the first one, love the pop of yellow from the cardy, and what a win with the skirt.

    I also actually LOVE the background. Really. I’m not joking.

  13. I love your outfits…all of them! My favourite one is the one with the animal print cardigan and the coral necklace. How sweet is your little girl lurking in the background. Thanks for being a constant inspiration.
