I have this awful habit of stylist jumping, for a number of different reasons, but this always means that I’m always both excited and nervous before a haircut. This particular stylist came with good feedback from many of my friends so I had decided to wait until after my haircut for this photoshoot. Probably not the best of choices. Don’t get me wrong. I love my haircut. She did my pseudo-bangs à la Jennifer Laurence (who I have a total crush on by the way) from Silver Linings. You’ll be able to see that better in future posts. I just don’t like how wrong the styling was. Part of that was probably just that my hair is thicker than she’s used to but ah well.

Tip 1: Make a neutral outfit more fun with a pop of color.

Tip 2: Wear a hat when your hair doesn’t look that cute 😉

I’d also like to call attention to my purse. As a recent college graduate I don’t have much spare cash for splurge pieces like this but oh was this one well worth it. The leather is so rich and smooshy and even after a month of heavy use it still has that rich leather smell. and best of all it’s got all of the quality with none of the over the top branding (the duck is adorable).  I got a less expensive but still gorgeous bag from Dooney and Bourke, but then I saw this one and completely fell in love. I waffled about it for a little while and then realized its not worth spending that much money on something you aren’t completely obsessed with. So I returned it, waited for my bag to go on sale, and then I splurged on it. While it’s probably one of the most expensive pieces in my wardrobe, it was definitely a good choice for an investment piece.

Tip 3: A simple and inexpensive outfit can be elevated with some unique, luxurious accessories.

    I love the name of your blog, it’s incredibly cute and so is the design and layout.
    Pretty post, lovely pictures and you have such a nice bag! I love those shirts too, they’re so easy.

      Thanks Karen! Seriously, the shirt is great! Wanted to buy all the different colors at cotton on but I was limiting myself :).
