This is probably one of my favorite outfits in a long time which is funny because I’d been having a “I hate everything I own. I don’t know how to put outfits together anymore. I’m just going to donate everything.” moment for two days in a row prior. Guess I came out of that funk with a vengeance!

Lets talk about that hair for a second. My hair, as I’ve mentioned a few times before, does not hold a curl. Don’t bother telling me about some new-fangled way to make curls because I’ve tried it and it didn’t work for me. My hair hates curls, especially when it’s even the tiniest bit moist outside. It takes fifteen or twenty minutes for me to shoot an outfit and in that time my hair can go completely flat. It’s funny because with these photos you can go through and very easily figure out the order in which they were taken. There’s one where my hair is super curly, then it’s slightly less curly and then it just gave up trying and went back to it’s natural state of being reeeal straight. It used to really make me mad that my hair does this but I’m learning to laugh at it. Guess I should just be stoked my hair withstands bleaching and dyeing on a regular basis! It’s a pretty fair trade.

As you may have noticed, I’ve kind of gone ring crazy. I even googled “how many rings is it acceptable for a lady to wear at once?” Haha! Not that the answer would have mattered had it been the opposite of my opinion, I’m obsessed with them now. In the past I wasn’t much of ring wearer, I mean I wore them here and there but I never considered them something I had to have and sometimes I couldn’t even stand to have them on my fingers. But somehow in the last few weeks I’ve all of a sudden become super comfortable wearing rings all the time to the point where my hands feel naked without them. The stacking rings from Birka Scandinavian  and my poison ring have become a real staple in what I wear.

Have a great Thursday!

  • Such a gorgeous outfit! That necklace is divine, and I love the shoes as well.

    I've got my fingers crossed for your curly hair appearing one day! My hair has definitely gotten curlier over the past 3-4 years. So maybe! It can be so frustrating – I know if my hair looks crap I don't feel comfortable with any outfit I put on!

  • Cute!! I looove the yellow with your lovely pink hair – what an awesome combination! 🙂 And I kind of have the opposite hair problem…lol – I have halfwavy/curly hair, but it's naturally very flat & fine (weird, yes) but I straighten it and then as soon as I go outside it gets curly..lol. agh! Let's switch hair, yeah?

  • I really love your striped dress. I keep telling myself to find a striped dress asap, so I'll be looking over spring break! I love yours paired with the yellow cardigan and your super fun hair color.

  • i ADORE your poison ring. before i even knew it was a ring with a secret compartment, i really liked it! i will have to keep an eye out for one.

    also my hair is super thin and never held a curl, but now that i'm in my 20's and it's past my shoulders, it wants to be a little wavy at the ends. never at the root or the first 10 inches of hair, only the ends! since my hair doesn't hold heat curls, i just take what i can get and rock the messy waves.

  • I have super straight hair too. I don't really notice how long the curls last if I do try it. I've been feeling very uninspired by my wardrobe, but I know it's because I'm so ready for a new season.
