First things first: yes, I got my hair cut. And it’s about half an inch shorter than I like. But that means that in a few weeks it will be the perfect length. Thank goodness my hair grows quickly. Until then I’ll just have to be hyper-vigilant about wedge-shaped hair. Although, it looks positively flapper-esque when I wear my winter hat.

Secondly, yes, I am doing the Take One, Pass It On Challenge today. I actually had a completely different outfit planned but at the last minute decided that I also wanted to participate in Bri’s Third Thursday theme of animal print with a new outfit. So what did I pass on? The gold shell I had on with my red, gold, and brown outfit! See it peeking out underneath my sweater?

This shell is quite long on me and I’ve always worn it tucked in. But after seeing a few sweaters at Target that had bottom hems embellished with a different material such as this one and this one I thought this would be the perfect top to wear underneath a sweater. Turns out, it works pretty well! And it adds a little extra visual interest to what might otherwise be a much simpler outfit.

      Thanks, Emily! I guess I just get so used to something that sometimes the change is jarring.

      I’d actually been wanting a leopard print pencil skirt for awhile so of course I had to grab this one when I saw it at Target!

    I’m convinced it’s nearly impossible to get your hair cut to the actual length you want. I’d venture that at least 75% of my haircuts have ended with the stylist saying, “Well?” and me being all, “…it’s…great…(but can you add an inch or two back on?).” Granted it always grows there *eventually*, but it’d be nice if I could have what I was hoping for from the get go.
