New Do

newdo_1

So you may or may not have noticed, but last week I chopped off a good deal of my hair.  (Truth be told, I’ve come into contact with quite a few family members and friends since last Thursday’s haircut and no one really noticed.)  Whether or not it seems like a big change to anyone else, this new ‘do feels like a big change to me, and I’m having fun revisiting old pieces in my closet with this new style.  Everything just feels lighter after you lose six or so inches of hair.

Summer Belts

I’ve realized lately that I definitely need to find a proper place in my new closet for storing belts, since they currently tend to get overlooked and forgotten about.  I needed a belt to add a little something to this dress yesterday, and during my hunt for the perfect complement I re-discovered this vintage gem.  Some accessories just scream summer, and this one, made of rope and leather with a very nautical clasp, added just a bit of contrast and a decidedly August vibe for an evening stroll around the city.

Sunsets and Sparkle

I love summer and the way the warm nights stretch on longer than in any other season.  A 7 o’clock golden hour just feels more magical, especially when the sunset is bouncing off a skirt of gold sequins.

Leopard Dash

White eyelet always feels so fresh and sweet, and even a little touch of leopard can’t change that.  It does add a dash of the unpredicted though, and a bit of unexpected fun is what summer weekends are all about.

Sweet Sailing

I love this little dress and wanted to make sure I got at least one wear in before the end of summer.  It’s definitely got a bit of a nautical feel to it, and while I loved the look of it with yesterday’s red heels, it was one sailor hat away from becoming a touch too costumey.  Instead I swapped in my jeweled slides for a relaxed look that felt just right with my new long bob.
