Welcome to the first post of 2016. Glad to have you here. You would think “new year, new me” right? Wrong. New year, same me…but this time in a blush sweater / dress combo that I now realized I stole from Fall 2011 (more about that later). Who knew that four years later the look would still be going strong?
When I think of the fact I’ve gotten away with two WWW posts in December WITHOUT A COAT, I can’t help but feel like the luckiest girl in the world (along with every other Chicagoan). And no, this isn’t one of those situations where you see a blogger in a short sleeveless dress and open toe shoes with a field of snow in the background…I actually try to keep my outfits somewhat practical. And what’s more practical than black on black??
Ah, the hair tuck — the beauty version of a coat draped over your shoulders. You think one of two things when you see such tucking — 1) WHOA did she get a super short hair cut? 2) she’s too cool / effortless / lazy to let her hair out from under her jacket. Either way, let’s talk about it.
According to Instagram, it seems like I’ve been in Marfa, Texas all week…when really I was only there for a couple of days. No, I am not trying to trick you into thinking I take super long vacations…there’s just way too much to Instagram in that little town. So much so that I need [at least] one entire blog post dedicated to that short trip.
