I’ve been wanting to try belting over a scarf for AGES, but every other attempt has failed. This particular belt/scarf combo seems to work, and it feels like a great color mash-up for fall transitional.
I’ve had a few questions about how I’m liking the new ‘do a month in, so here’s the scoop: I LOVE IT. Love, love, love it. I love it completely and passionately and I can’t quite imagine ever going back to longer hair. I feel like this style suits my facial structure, adds edge to my looks, pushes me to style my clothing differently, and just plain works for me. I feel more like myself than I have in ages. In fact, last week I had lunch with a dear friend who hadn’t seen me since February, and toward the end of our lunch the haircut came up. She explained that she hadn’t said anything about it because, “You just look like you.” I feel like me. Getting a shorter cut was definitely the right move, and I’m looking forward to styling up my fall and winter looks in new and different ways to accommodate it.
On a completely different note …
… as of today, I’ve been married to Husband Mike for nine years. Every day I thank my lucky stars that I found him. You think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. Every single day I’m grateful for him. He makes me laugh, makes me think, and makes me believe I can do anything in the world. Plus he’s an EXCELLENT shopping partner. And dead sexy.
