I’ve been stubbornly resisting wearing anything but a light jacket now, even if it just snowed only a few weeks ago. I just want it to be spring already! I’m really looking forward to it getting and staying warm out, though I’ll miss having the excuse to layer constantly, which is 100% the only way I know how to dress myself. Is there even any other way of styling clothes? Don’t ask me.
I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of this Forever21 purchase since the fall, which is actually a nice surprise since I’ve had it for a couple of years and didn’t wear it much at all right after I bought it. I managed to pick it up before the shearling trend – especially shearling trim – was in full swing and I’m happy to be ahead of a trend for once. For some reason it took me a while to warm up to motorcycle jackets rather than motorcross styles – motorcycle jackets have a diagonal zip rather than a straight one. I like being able to change the cut of the jacket based on the underneath layers, the zipper can act as a great accent for a neckline, and that’s one of the styling tricks that really adds visual interest to an outfit.
I just cut and dyed my hair (sneak peek on my instagram), and though I love it, I still find that I miss this hair something fierce every one in a while. That purple. That length. What was I thinking? (The tangles, the stringiness, the always-misbehaving thing, that’s what I was thinking.) I’ll be waxing poetic about my new hair in an upcoming post – stay tuned.
