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!

Remember this hot pink Zara dress I wore to 80s night? It was so hot yesterday that all I could handle wearing was that dress and some wedges. And some lipstick, of course.

Or…more accurately, “browser shopping.” The obsession with turquoise continues! I think the yellow is a fun contrast color, and I always love a delicate gold ring. To be quite honest, I don’t envision these Zara sandals with any of the dresses, but I thought they were fun (and they’re on sale!)

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!

Is there anything more timeless than a little black dress, heels, and red lips? I don’t think so 🙂

A rare morning off from court calls for a pretty, retro-inspired dress!

And now, a goofy photo montage. I don’t know how other bloggers manage to look so good posing (here, here, and here), but I certainly do not have that gift!

Hasta manana!

I love this scene from Portlandia, and that is EXACTLY what I was thinking when I got dressed this morning.

Please note my cat, Fatman, in the left periphery. Who knows what he sees on my floor?
