A Little Shaggy

image image image image image image

Happy Humpday! It’s been a while since my last post, but as promised, I’m revealing the changes I made to my hair. It’s nothing drastic, but it’s just enough to keep me powering through this “boring” stage of my hair.

I mentioned earlier in the year that one of my goals for 2016 is to not color my hair for the entire year. The last time I colored it was November of last year, so I’m currently 5 months color-free. I’ve definitely had some urges, but I’ve managed to push through them. My reason for doing this boils down to the fact that I have darkened and lightened my hair so many times throughout the past 18 years and through my elementary years I had a perm (thanks mom!). Basically I haven’t had virgin hair since I was 2! I just want to give my poor head a rest. Don’t worry though. I’ll be back at it again in 2017!

On top of eliminating color this year, I’m trying to grow my hair long again. It’s torture really. So when I began to be inspired by all the 70’s shags I was seeing, I decided I wanted in.

My face is now framed with shaggy layers. Not too shaggy, just a little. I slightly layered the sides and back of my hair also. As my hair continues to grow out, I think I’ll continue to keep the pieces around my face shorter. Not only do I like it, but it’ll give me something to do while I wait for Rapunzel locks.

Black Essentials



FullSizeRender(34)I love black clothing. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of items in color that I’m attracted to also, but for some reason, I can’t get enough of black. With that being said, I want to share with you 2 black articles of clothing that have become essential to me.

Earlier this year, I came across Cotton Citizen clothing. I immediately started to fall in love with everything they had, and I’d never even tried it on. It seemed that the wisest decision for me to make would be to get a basic (vintage) black V neck. I knew it would go with everything. The moral of this story is, it’s now my favorite shirt that I own, and I wear it all the time.  If you are looking for a favorite tee, look no further than this site. And hey, all their stuff is made in the USA!

The shorts I’m wearing are the best fitting and most flattering cut shorts I’ve ever found. They have been my summer go-to for my bottom half since they basically look great with everything.

I love these pieces together, and they obviously mix and match well with so many other options. Do yourself a favor and get some essentials of your own! What do you think?
