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!

I had the day off on Monday, so I went and stimulated the economy. Never say I am not a patriot! I tried on so many things, including this adorable cat-printed dress from Anthropologie.

I liked this dress, but didn’t love it, and certainly didn’t want to justify the price tag. The shoulders would also have to be taken in, and I’d like it to hit me an inch higher. If it ever goes on super-clearance in my size, I might have to snag it, though – the print is too cute!

Now on to the successes!

I’m totally excited to wear all of these – just need the weather to cooperate!

I’m dying over this J.Crew blouse in the Snowcat print, but I just can’t bring myself to spend a ton of money on clothes right now, so imagine my delight when I found something similar at Forever 21!

Stating the obvious: it’s HOT outside.

Here’s a close up of my accessories. I love delicate rings and a chunky gold watch. Please also excuse my pained expression. I managed to hurt my neck/back this weekend, and wound up at my first-ever chiropractic adjustment appointment today. It was nice, but I’m still a little sore!

How fun is that rhinestone bow? It’s like fabulous little hat for my phone 🙂

Stay cool, everyone!

Every once in a while, I find something miraculously work-appropriate (and cheap!) This shirt is one of those shopping myths, like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. Sure the stripes are a little wonky and there’s a huge splotch of the dark blue ink on the stripe below it, but for under $20, I’m not complaining!

Here’s hoping you all find your shopping Loch Ness Monster! 🙂

I love colorblocking, and was excited when I bought this t-shirt from Mango a few months ago. This outfit is so comfortable!

Hope everyone’s week is off to a good start!

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!
