Reverse Raindance

Sweater – F21; Dress – Ruche; Tights – Hue; Boots – Petite Pieds.

These rain boots are magic.  Honestly!  Every time I wear them it instantly stops raining.  They’re like raindance shoes, but in reverse in that they stop the rain.  Then, when I came inside for the day and put these boots away, it started raining again. You think I’m joking, but the last seven times I’ve worn them in the rain, it stopped raining within 10 minutes.  Honestly!

Oh, and I absolutely adore this dress!  It’s so perfect and magical and I love the simple horse print on it.  The material  is a soft silky type that feels just so decadent and indulgent.  And the subtle sweetheart neckline with a cross-over back is flattering on everyone! *when it’s warm enough outside to wear it without layering of course, like here*  I originally got it from Ruche here, but they only have a couple left, so you can get it here, from Modcloth, too *especially if you’re looking for a medium*, and if you like the idea of black and pink, get the dress in this color from ShopSosie instead!  

p.s. no I didn’t wear the same tights two days in a row.  I’m just a little behind and disjointed on outfit shots.  I wore them two days apart.

p.p.s.  Check out some behind the scenes shots that the fabulous make-up artist took at my latest shoot!

Baby chased the dog around the ottoman today for about 15 minutes.

Our house is really exciting.

Nerdy Versus Cute

Sweater – F21; Shirt – AE; Jeans – Guess; Shoes – Sketchers.

I was really concerned that this sweater would be too cutsy for me, but I love penguins so much I got it anyway and just made sure that I wouldn’t pair it with a full, floral skirt.  That I think, would be too cutsy for me.  Instead, I wore it with ripped jeans and plain sneakers.  I thought that would ground the sweater a bit more in preppy chic that cute-little-girl.  Do I think about this too much?  Am I the only one who is concerned about this?  Maybe.  Maybe I should just get the heck over it.

True Story:
You know that infinity scarf with a hood I have?  
Baby loves it too!  
She wears it around dragging the back on the floor, and lays down to cuddle with it. 

I’m Excited About My Haircut!

Cardi – Old Navy; Belt – H&M; Dress – Ruche; Tights – Hue; Shoes – Payless; Scarf – street stand.

I got a haircut!  I also did some voice over work *read about that here*But back to the haircut.  I’m excited about this and I’ll tell you why.  Remember when I chopped off allllll of my hair? As I’m sure you know, bobs have a different angle of cut then other, longer styles.  They’re longer at the front and shorter in the back, while regular haircuts do the opposite – longer at the back and shorter at the front.  Anyway, since then I’ve been growing it back out again.  And my hairdresser has been slowly and carefully changing back the angel so as not to give me a dramatic cut that would dishearten how much I’ve grown it out.  Weellll, after this last appointment she said that it’s now at the right angle, and no longer going to look wonky…at least not from the cut – the styling is all up to me.   So that’s why I’m so happy.  ‘Cause my hair is now all back to the way it should…only shorter.  But that takes time.  Unless someone can donate hair extensions.
