Seeing Stripes

Warning: The following post includes an extreme amount of stripes, turn back now if you don't think you can handle it. 

Short hair and so don't care! I am in love with it; this short, easy flowing almost bob is the perfect hair cut for me! It has just the right amount of bounce and a great combo of adorableness yet sophistication.

Now onto the stripes... don't you just love this combination? Bright pink and orange horizontal stripes mixed with classic black and white ones. I added the denim button up to break up the madness of all these stripes.

Overload

This post is loaded with everything from new shoes to new hair to a fun weekend away. Scroll on through and see what you find!

Lets start with the NEW SHOES.. last night I ventured into my moms closet and found some great shoes, including these. I feel like they are librarian meets businesses women loafers, with the perfect little heel. 

Next up... the hair. I may or may not have cut my own hair last night and I may or may not be so happy with the outcome. I knew that I wanted short hair so I grabbed some scissors and started to cut. It felt great. I got to control just how short it went, which never happens when a stylist cuts it. I think that the reason it worked out so well for me is that I planned on getting a hair cut today (which I did) so it didn't matter if I screwed up because all would be fixed. In my next post my hair will be even shorter!

And now... I am obsessed with neck scarves. This red polk-a-dot Jcrew scarf is the perfect length to play around with different ways to tie it. But I love the way this adorable little bow looked, eventually there will be a "how to tie a neck scarf" post but first I have to learn some other ways.

Lastly... I spent this past weekend with my big sis at her college! We had a fabulous time and it was so great to see her, but that also explains why I haven't posted a lot lately.

Double Trouble

Double the trouble with double the dresses! A long sleeve chambray dress with a white lace dress over top. The lace dress has just the right amount of sheer material which allows the blue to peek out! I choose to wear my doc martins to a little toughness to this pretty "girly girl" outfit, and I love the contrast that they bring with them.

This week at school has been crazy busy, test after test after in class essay. Not a great week so far. But things will be looking up, this weekend I am going to see my sister at college and I couldn't be more excited!!

Little Black Dress



This little black dress is great for this changing weather. Today was the perfect fall day, brisk but sunny. I am so happy for the return of my ripped black tights, the perfect addition to any look especially an all black outfit.

Confidence is Key Take 7


Confidence stems from being exactly who you are. Don't ever let anyone make you feel like you need to change yourself. YOU ARE PERFECT, as long as you believe that you are perfect. Don't let anyone control you or your happiness, you are the only person who can do that. Don't let peoples hate bring you down. Don't take things others say about you to heart, its their problem not yours. Don't believe what they say. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP HIGH. Always keep moving forward. Leave the negativity behind. And be who you are.

Layers



It's October so why is it almost 80 degrees?? This warm weather is really killing my dreams of a chilly fall. All I want is to be able to layer, and wear sweaters, tights and coats. 
But I must admit it was a beautiful day today anyway!

I really love this red tank top. But it can be hard to wear because of the open back. But its really really cool and I have never had a shirt like it, especially paired with this simple denim button up and my favorite ripped jeans.
