Straight


I don't know why, and you'll probably think I'm crazy, but for whatever reason, I have a really hard time just wearing my hair down and straight. I feel like it's so heavy so it just hangs and looks flat. But then I see so many other people who wear it this way and I'm envious, so, why don't/can't I wear my hair like this more? I didn't realize how long it's been getting until I took these photos, either. Probably because I'm usually curling it or wearing it up!

It's been a pretty hectic last couple of weeks. Actually, it's been a crazy October, to say the least. It felt really good to be able to take legit blog photos this weekend. Last week, I was forced (because I was sick last weekend) to only post 3 times last week, and even still all 3 posts were pre-written, in that they were outfits I had worn well in advance. Although it was nice to have extra time back in my life, I felt pretty disconnected from the blogging world!

Sunnies: Gucci (option) | Necklace: Stella & Dot | Jacket: Kenna-T (optionbudget option) | Dress: Bailey 44 | Heels: Joe's

I originally started this blog as my OOTD documentary on steroids, so to speak. I was taking selfies every morning of everything I wore, and then I graduated from taking photos on my phone to taking photos on a real camera. And then all of a sudden, it went from taking photos every morning before work to taking photos in advance on the weekend. So this past week when I was just "living life" without proper photos of my outfits - I felt lost! Not sure what my life has come to, but I'll say that I'm not quite done sharing my outfits with you, so I hope you're not quite done looking at them yet. :)

Thanks for sticking with me!

  4. I'm definitely not done looking at your outfits, so I'm glad you're lost without sharing them! ha!! And speaking of outfits, this one is just perfect! Love the way you paired the dress and heels and jacket! They work beautifully together. And straight hair is gorgeous on you, so you shouldn't feel uncertain about that at all!

    1. Ever since I grew out my bangs, my hair has never fell the same since! It's just awkward, but thanks for the reassurance. Will try and wear it with more confidence! And thanks for not quitting me yet! :)

  6. I can see why you haven't found a Bailey44 Dress you haven't loved...great cuts, lines & colors! I love the addition of the cognac jacket with the grey!! I'm like you, I don't like my own hair down and straight...what's with that?!? While I did notice it on you (in that it was different from your "usual"), it looks great! You have great long thick hair!! :-)

    1. Thank you! I just hate how flat it looks by my face. I need to fluff it up or something! I used to have long sideswept bangs, which helped, but they were so hard to maintain because my forehead is so greasy! Anyway! I will keep working at it!

  7. I love your hair down and straight. I have progressed as you have from phone selfies through to the real camera, and lately I have to wait till after work to take the pictures because it is to dark in the morning but this has allowed me to actually write a post the night before, so my OOTD is more like an OOY ( outfit of yesterday). Feels weird if I do not go home and take the pics...killer shoes btw

  16. Thanks for being open and real here. I know how you feel because I have had a broken lap-top (my own) for 3 weeks now. I am always behind in outfit posting. But since I am know using my husband's lap-top I have blogger more recent and very recent outfits, sometimes even blogging the same OOTD the day I am wearing it (which I plan on doing later today). You look great with the hair straight and down, babe.

  17. It's pretty addictive this blogging lark isn't it? I sometimes feel like it's about "feeding the beast"! That said, your hair looks gorgeous any way you wear it, you lucky girl! Glad you feel better, and thanks so much for linking to #AllAboutYou!
