I almost never wear my hair up. It’s just something I’ve always avoided because I spent my childhood wearing my hair in a super long single braid all the way through the 6th grade. Wearing my hair down has become very tedious, but I’ve probably worn any other way less than 15 times in the past two years. I probably would’ve worn it down if I didn’t feel like this outfit needed a bit of a bump up in the dressy direction. I think I’m finally feeling like getting more adventurous with my hair! I can’t wait for what lies ahead.

I’m also wearing this gorgeous necklace designed by my old friend, Jessica, who is the blogger behind Label Me. This is my second piece from her…you’ll be seeing the first later this week. I also got these beautiful duster earrings in gunmetal because my jewelry collection is lacking in that department. I’m a huge advocate of local businesses and Jessica is also a friend of mine from when I was like, 9, so I had to give this super talented girl a shout!

Something I’m getting better with is wearing things I would’ve otherwise saved for a future, not-yet-existent event. I bought this dress earlier this year and the first time I wore it was actually not for the blog! Well, I did take outfit photos in it, but I have no idea what they look like because they’re on a roll of film somewhere, haha. But still. This is its blog debut, and not its life debut. I’m so proud of myself! Hahaha.

Do you ever buy things and save it for no reason? My closet is full of those and I’m trying my hardest to get through them! I even have Stylestalker and Evil Twin pieces I’ve never worn. What is wrong with me?

I LOVE that necklace. Like seriously- I need it! It’s funny- I never used to wear my hair down, but sometime in the last two years I started doing that and now it’s down all the time! Also, I totally save new clothes in my closet for no particular reason. It’s just fun to know that I almost always have a new/unworn item of clothing in my closet :)

Your hair looks really cute up! I don’t wear mine up too often because I get headaches real easily. The necklace is so pretty!

Thanks, Jen! I get headaches from headbands, unfortunately. We can’t have ’em all :\
