Hi reader(s)!

So I’m still in love with my ombre highlights, but was convinced I’d never be able to get my hair to look as good as it did the day I left the salon. I watched my stylist curl my hair with the flat iron, and even asked her to walk me through it step-by-step, but I still couldn’t get it to work! But I watched a few tutorials (including this one by Style-Ish) and after a lot of trial and error, I’m happy with the results! For me, the trick seemed to be taking small sections and releasing the clamp on my flatiron a split second before I get to the ends of my hair. I also used Bumble & Bumble’s Thickening Hairspray while my hair was damp and finished it off with a liddlebit of Grooming Creme.

[Voila! As opposed to “viola” or “wah laa” as I’ve seen it creatively spelled]

Here’s a full-body shot. Before we get there, please note that I did not intend for my shirt+shorts tuck-in to look so…crotchy, but I snapped this photo on my way out the door to rehearsal tonight. Please also enjoy the peek into my closet!

Please also note the two tumbleweed-sized hairballs my cats have left. Sigh. I love this t-shirt, and I can’t remember which boutique in San Francisco it came from, but the fabric is so soft and I love the asymmetry.
Maybe I’ll spend the last few hours of my weekend cleaning my dresser and my room!

It is SO hot here right now! The kitties and I are doing everything we can to stay cool. They’re panting on the floor, and I’m wearing shorts and a flowy top.

Hope you all stay cool!

I just realized I never take photos of myself in my suit jackets anymore. Rest assured, I never go into court without a matching blazer + pant/skirt, if anyone from management is reading!

I actually ended up gifting these shoes to one of my friends this afternoon. They’re a half size too big, and I stupidly thought I could make them work. I love rehoming things!

I don’t normally wear heels lower than 3 inches, and let’s be honest: I usually wear 4 or 5 inch heels, but I saw these kitten-heeled leopard pointy toes and had to have them!

It’s been a busy few days; waiting for the weekend!

Gotta love a lazy Sunday!

I’m not sure why this photo is so grainy, but I’m dealing with it, so you should too 😛

I love this neon necklace! T+J Designs has a similar one here in pink AND in yellow! I also got a pedicure today, and picked a happy turquoise for beach season.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

I’m back! After many weeks of being sadfaced about my crappy iPhone/closet mirror photography, I’ve decided to get over myself and keep blogging 🙂

I’ve also resolved to tweet a daily photo of my outfit, regardless of whether I like it or not. Follow me @evangelina!

One last thing: I’m doing my bi-annual shopping hiatus for July, so expect to see some old favorites, hopefully in new ways!
