Whenever I wear my hair “down,” lots of people asked if I’ve cut it. They’re always surprised to hear that I haven’t because it definitely looks quite different. Sometimes I wear it down just to mix things up, but lately I’ve been doing it because of -30 degree windchills. My messy/curly ‘do gets totally squashed by my hat, but worn like this I look relatively normal post-hat. And when it’s that cold out, a hat is absolutely required.
Do any of you adjust your hairstyles to avoid “hat head”?
Plaid and leather can definitely be a punk-y combination, especially if we’re talking red and black buffalo plaid with black leather. But due to a warmer color palette this look is a little more Fancy Lady Lumberjack, I think. I wonder if THAT look will ever be trendy …
A year later, I’m still so excited to have scored this leather jacket on eBay. It’s originally from Victoria’s Secret, and surprisingly soft and well-made in addition to being that perfect shade of cognac. Oh, cognac. I may never drink you, but I sure do love to wear you.
Can you tell I’m feeling a little scattered this week? It’s like Brain Popcorn in here.
Wore this a couple of weekends ago when we drove down to Winona – birthplace and namesake of Ms. Ryder – to take in the fall color. We also swung through Red Wing and a few other small towns. People, it was GORGEOUS. And although most of those leaves are gone by now, the ones behind me on the maple-lined block south of ours were downright stunning, too.
This dress hails from fabulous Toronto designer Jessica Rose, and is part of a new line she’s created using Liberty prints. I’m a fool for anything Liberty and Jessica Rose’s designs are always as comfy as they are lovely, so this dress is a joy to wear.
