I've Been Workin' Workin' Day and Night

I loved this outfit beyond reason.

Stripes florals and tie dye

There is just something about florals and stripes that really speaks to me. It is my favorite pattern combination of all time. (OF ALL TIME!)

Stripes florals and tie dye

These pictures were also taken right about the time I started to adjust to and really love my bangs. I'm good with them now. I feel like they were a positive step, but it was touch and go there for a while in the beginning. I'm not good at learning how to style my hair in new ways and whenever I change it I have an adjustment period that includes thinking I have a made a huge mistake. When I cut it it's the styling that gets me, but the few times I've changed the color it's been eve worse. Suddenly none of my clothing or make-up looks right on me anymore and I panic. And that is why I just keep it it's natural color now. (Oh I dye it to cover the grey now and then, I just dye it the same shade it actually is.)

Today is my co-worker Alanna's last day at Buffalo Dallas. She is transferring to a store in California. I wish her all good things and happiness, but I will miss her terribly. We love you, Alanna!

I have been lusting over a striped blazer for a while now - and I LOVE this one! Florals + stripes one of my all-time fav combos :)

No one does pattern mixing like you. NO ONE! Also? I can totally tell from the photos that you are loving your bangs - I don't know how, but somehow the whole vibe is more positive (they looked great before, but now they just look AMAZING!).

It took me a while to get used to seeing you in bangs too but they are really cute on you! Love the pattern mixing, you somehow look sweet and bad-ass at the same time!

I love the mismatched patterns you're working here. There's no obvious color scheme tying them together but they so totally work.

STRIPES AND FLORALS! They're also very much my favorite print combo. In fact, I wore them yesterday AND Friday. I think it's an addiction we have, woman. You look fantastic, especially with the striped blazer.

Louise said...

I agree with Futurelint-- you are always sweet and badass. I haven't commented on here in a while, but I love you and your awesome style! Striped and florals are one of my fave combos too.

Love the floral & stripes! Glad your bangs were a good call -- they look so great on you. Reminds me of when Marla Jo got her bangs!

Rebecca said...

I think the bangs look awesome!

Those jeans are fantastic on you. Often the wash can be overwhelming, but you look great!

Girl, you continue to inspire me to pattern mix. I love how you paired that striped blazer with florals. And I love your bangs as well. Adjusting to a new hairstyle can be totes agonizing, but you make it work. Rock on.

Ive been searching for a striped blazer/blazer-look-a-like forever so if you decide you hate that one, I'll take it off your hands gladly, K?

My all-time favorite pattern combo is stripes and floral print too (such kindred spirits!!) Im convinced it can't be done wrong.

PS, you make me want to have bangs. They look amazing on you.

Laura said...

I LOVE stripes and florals. For real, you look amazing. As always.

I love that jacket! It's so crisp!

As for bangs, at my last haircut, I had the girl cut in straight-across bangs again. I've had them before & absolutely loved them. But this time, I hated every second of them and have started growing them out to side-swoopy length again. Seeing your bangs almost makes me want my bangs back.

kelseychristiansonwilliams said...

I'm pretty sure that floral and stripes was made for you. I'm having some serious coveting over here for that jacket too!

Rachel Emma said...

I'm having the same hair issue as well! I kind of want blunt bangs, but I'm afraid as soon as I do it I will regret it (I've had side swept bangs for years!) or that it will look weird on me!

Loving the floral and stripes combo!
