The weather sure has been fickle in my little corner of Texas. It can't decide if it wants to cool down or stay hot. When it comes to getting dressed in this kind of weather, I usually pair a long-sleeved top with some shorts. That's been my go-to uniform this past week!
I headed out to Round Top for Antiques Week with a girlfriend on Saturday. Sadly, we didn't see Chip or JoJo ;) When we left the house that morning, it was a chilly 60 degrees. I knew it would warm up a bit, so I threw on the Target plaid I posted about a couple of weeks ago and then some plain ol' black shorts. I ended up in my black TOMS because I knew I'd be walking a TON that day. What that outfit lacked in "style" it made up for in comfort. My legs were on FIRE after an 8-hour shopping day!!! But I did score some pretty great "junk", so it was worth it ;)
Shorts: Old Navy (a few years ago)
Fringe Crossbody: Two Bar West
I was doing some work at my first grader's campus last week and while I was there I popped in to have lunch with him. I mean, bless. Does he EVER get any food in his mouth?!?!? ;) Hahaha. My Texas blood was COLD that day. I'm pretty sure the temps were in the 60's (cue the laughter from all my friends who REALLY know what cold is ;)) Old Navy has the CUTEST popovers and plaid shirts right now. I was excited to wear this one and absolutely LOVE it. SO comfy!! I paired it with my favorite skinny jeans and some casual booties. And pigtails for good measure...because nothing says "mature adult" quite like pigtails ;)
Jeans: Express Legging Jeans
Booties: JC Penney (y'all..Penney's has some CUTE shoes right now!!!)
I found this vented sweater at Forever 21 last month and absolutely LOVE it. It's lightweight and drapes just perfectly. When it gets cooler, I'll be pairing it with some of my favorite vests and sweaters. For now it's great with shorts :)

Necklace: Sam Moon (THIS ONE is similar)
In other news, I'm getting my hair done tomorrow because these grays are officially out of control. In a terrible, terrible way. I usually get the bottom layer of my hair dyed black and then a lighter brown on top. I'm thinking about changing things up and going for some ombre. I just want a change! Here are some colors I'm loving right now...especially the colors on the far right and far left.
I've had long hair for a long time. I really do love it. But every now and then I want a change with the cut, too. I went super short about 9ish years ago. Like, right below my ears short. I personally loved the cut, but a co-worker at the time told me my face was "too fat" for a short cut. That's stuck with me for all these years, so I don't want to go too short. I need something that compliments my chipmunk cheeks :) I'm thinking about an angled cut like the one on the right. Katie's ***might*** be too short, but I'm loving the choppiness and the bangs. And the cut on the left is sort of perfect. Not too long, not too short. My husband tells me not to cut it at all. What is it with men and long hair?!
I'll probably come back from the salon with the exact same black and brown color I usually get and then just a trim to top it all off. Dangit!!!!
