Have I shared photos of what I want my hair to look like eventually? I can’t remember – this and this are a couple of the front-runners. Jaimie and I weren’t sure if we’d be working with waves in the end or if actual curls would show up. They’re coming in sporadically, but I’ve finally got at least one big curl up front. Just a few more inches …

The folks at Antelope sent me these fabulous ankle boots to try, and they’re just as comfy and fun to wear as my other Antelope pairs. You can’t see it here, but they’ve got a cute snap closure at the ankle that gives them a wonderfully slim profile.

There we go: Snow. And believe me, we’ve got the temps to match these days.

So this week I sent an email to my LOTT board members reminding them to show up for our meeting on time. Then I got stuck in traffic and sauntered in 10 minutes late myself. Also this week I posted about growing out a pixie, and how it’s totally do-able and not as frustrating as you might think. And, of course, my hair started doing this – swooping WAY OVER to one side and refusing to fall any other way. I’m still growing my hair out and will freely admit that there have been some bumps in the road, including this one. But I’ve never been so frustrated that I wore a hat for a solid month. Plus my hair grows like a weed so it’ll probably look completely different in a week.

It’s all great go-with-the-flow practice for me. And I can certainly use it.

Hoo boy, am I giving you a blast from the past today. What with the holidays and traveling and whatnot, I haven’t taken many outfit posts in the past weeks, and now (as locals will note) we’ve finally got snow. Lots of it. Bear with me while I cruise through a few pre-winter outfits!

This one was taken on a particularly temperate day, which allowed me to do cuffed sleeves to show off my Roxanne Bergez leather wrap bracelet. Which I love. And which will probably be in hibernation until spring.

Can’t complain, though. When the first real snow hits Minneapolis AFTER Christmas, it’s been a super easy winter.
