Today I wanted a menswear-inspired look. I realized that I could do a fun take on a suit with items in my 30.
I don’t think I ever would have paired these items if not for this challenge. Even though the outfit is entirely composed of neutrals, I don’t normally mix brown, gray, tan, and khaki. I like it, though. I felt pretty clever all day in my 3-piece suit.
So, last night, after browsing the blogs of some lovely, stylish girls, I decided that I once again needed some bangs. Some blogger bangs. I went into my bathroom and contemplated for a few minutes before digging through my makeup bag to find the scissors I keep on hand for just such occasions. And then I totally hacked into my bangs. I feel kind of bad, because I just got a haircut last week, but I’ve just been so bored with my hair and I phone it in nearly every single day. Instead of styling the rest of my hair, though, I pulled it into a ponytail. I slept in too late to really do much else. Maybe tomorrow I’ll put in a little more effort.
So what about you? Do you ever just need a change? Am I alone in reaching for the scissors, or for a box of hair color?
