Well, not really. I am, of course, the same person, with basically the same hair style as earlier this year, but I felt new.
This morning, after a short drive and 2.5 hours having colored dye and bleach artistically applied to my hairs, then having said hairs carefully cut with precision, blown dry and flat-ironed by expert hands I emerged a new person.
And that's always fun.
In honor of fall I went back to a deeper brown with those peek-a-boo highlights.
It's quite brown. Like I'm in a state of shock brown. But I will adjust. I think.
There are more layers and even bangs in the front, so that's fun. My hair gets so thick that it tends to move as a unit instead of individual strands, so I'm giddy about the layers.
It obviously does not take much to make me giddy.
The back is bobbed, but look, it's longer, fuller and not cut so severe. Maybe in three years or so I can do a ponytail?
A fresh haircut and style, even if it's the same ol' style, shallow as it may sound, is so invigorating and worth every penny. Now if only I could bribe my lady to make regular house calls...
I haven't been making much of an effort lately to get myself together every day, kind of stuck in a frumpy rut. Unfortunately, at least for me, I easily let the frumps take over and it affects my overall mood and daily routine. BLAH! BLECH! In an effort to break that habit and present a better self to the world I am pledging to get myself presentable and stylish most days (baby steps, people). Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy hosts a weekly link-up called What I Wore Wednesday that showcases other ladies/stay at home moms' efforts to break out of sweatpants and t-shirts. They usually take pictures throughout the week and then write a WIWW post.
I love this idea!
So I'm going to play along.
Except today is already Wednesday and I can only document one outfit. Please bear with me. Plus we don't have a full length mirror, so I had to break it up. Again, please bear with me.
Black open front cardigan: Target
Grey tank with flowers: Old Navy
White Tank: Old Navy
Camera Strap: Shey B
Ham Hock Upper Arms: No exercise + copious amounts of junk food
Boyfriend jeans: Target (today I went for one wide cuff instead of rolled because I was feeling feisty)
Yellow Box Zebra Flips: Cavender's Boot City (I know!)
Wanna join me as I fight the frump and document my progress? Let me know if you do a WIWW post and I'll pop over to give you a knuckle bump. Or a high five. Or we can raise our coffee mugs together in cheers. Either way, it'll be fun!
Happy Wednesday friends!
