[dropcap]N[/dropcap]otice anything different today?! As I mentioned in my 2016 Goals post, one of my biggest insecurities is my hair. It’s fine and limp, and no matter what I do, I’m never happy with it. (I know: vain. But we all have our hangups, right?!) Recently, though, I started wearing the extensions I wore for my wedding, and I love them.
I have that amazing feeling you experience right after getting a new haircut. (Except, you know. It’s the opposite, haha.) It’s a whole new me!
And I have to tell you: the extensions aren’t the hassle I thought they’d be. While they initially took me a while to put in, I now have it down to about three minutes. Not bad! I really don’t notice them throughout the day, either.
Do I plan on wearing them every single day? No. From what I’ve read, daily use isn’t the best for your natural hair, and–let’s be serious–I spend a lot of days by myself at coffee shops. But a few days per week? You bet!
So, yeah. That explains the sudden change in appearance. ;)
Anyway. Yesterday, my new locks and I headed downtown (where these pics were snapped) for a fun project I was working on with Shaheen, Blair, Jess and Kendra Scott. (Stay tuned!) Afterward, we made brunch and hunkered down at Blair’s dining room table: my favorite place to work, as it’s incredibly well-lit and overlooks the city. Tasks were checked off to-do lists, laughs were had, and later, we broke out the wine and… Skittles. Um, hello, Best Wednesday Ever.
And yes: this is my second Cocoon Coat purchase of the year. (See the first one here, haha.) Sigh. But, I mean, I’ve been so good for so long–and I cleared out nearly half of the outerwear in my closet… so it’s okay, right?!
Also: I can’t get enough of this blush sweater. It arrived last weekend and I think I’ve worn it three times already! Last year, I fell completely in love with a similar chunky, pale pink sweater that Blair found at Zara. But because I wait on all purchase decisions for way too long, it–of course–sold out and I was devastated. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I discovered this one! And the good news? It’s majorly on sale!
Sizing help: I went up a couple of sizes in the sweater, and it’s perfect. The reviews might say it’s a little boxy, but not when I sized up! :) Hope that helps.
