Attempt Made


Shirt - Apt 9, thrifted
Cardigan - alternative, thrifted
Skirt - Gap, thrifted
Socks - sockdreams
Army flats - Trippen

So after yesterday's fuss fest, I started digging through and trying some stuff on. I remembered this new shirt I just got, and even though it's sleeveless, I added a cardigan. I knew the skirt fit since I got it recently too. The weather fairy must have heard my cries because it was lovely and sunny and hovering in the low 60s this afternoon.

More about the shirt! It's got a fantastic scrollwork print in brown and teal. Nice soft cotton and best of all, it fits.

I'm still loving my hair. I've had a lot of various reactions to it, but overall the biggest response has been "Why?!" I've answered, "Why not?" I love it, it makes me feel funky, pretty, sassy, rocker, edgy, and all the other adjectives that long hair never made me feel. I don't think buzzing one's head is a great idea for everybody, but it was a really liberating feeling for me.

Also because I'm missing Lynne and Miss Sasha Jane today, you get a picture of my little monsters' sister. She's such a cutie and I'm so glad she's grown up in a loving home with other four-legged and two-legged family members. And that I've been able to get updates on her progress. I miss all 'my' kittens terribly. There is literally no feeling like a pile of baby kittens sitting in your lap, watching them grow up from little nuggets into fully fledged kitty cats.

Sorry, I'm not sorry for stealing this picture, Lynne!

    This is a very cute outfit, I love the pattern on your shirt and it looks great with the skirt.

  3. Wow, that shirt is all kinds of perfect; brown and teal and such a great pattern!

    So much envy for the lovely weather, and your hair remains awesome. I'm in a pretty tame phase with my own hair right now, but the various radical changes I did on it over the years were very positive for me, and I'm glad you're loving yours right now. :)

  10. Your hair is so you. You're all those adjectives: edgy, funky, and sassy. I remember when I had short hair, and it made me feel a little wilder too. Enjoy it! You totally rock it. :)

  14. Your hair needs no explanation: it speaks for itself. Those with inquiries can contact your agent. Love the photo of Lynne.

  15. I love the teal - your attempts are always way better'n mine :)

    I do not mind you using that pic at all; it's my fave kitten picture with Sasha, who rules our house, is loved by all, and is a completely indoor monster because I will not risk anything happening to her.

  16. I think your new hair is perfect and will not hear otherwise. 'Why? ' is such a silly question...

  17. It's funny how some folks think you need a concrete reason to do something like change up your hair. Why not indeed! It looks awesome (and reminds me that next time I go in for a cut I think I want a buzz again...)
