GIRL ON FIRE

With so many neutral outfits lately, I felt like it was time for some color. And BOY did I overcompensate. If you had described this outfit to me, I would’ve said, “Ooo, girl, no.” But for some reason this just works. Treat your wardrobe like I treat Forever 21: Just try it on. I come up with my fair share of ooo-girl-nos, but I also sometimes catch a wild card like this one.

Side note: I’m not serving up camel toe; these pants stretch out SO MUCH by the end of the day that when I hike them up for pictures, I sometimes get *unfortunate* folding from excess fabric.

Ruffle My Feathers

Here’s a flashback that was hiding on Jill’s computer. You can tell it’s old because I’m missing an important piece of jewelry. My sister gave me this sweater for my birthday several years ago, only to find out that I had already bought the exact same one for myself! I added a pop of red shoe to the otherwise neutral outfit, and then snuck in the tiny red bracelet to help them make sense.

Candy Striper

My curls here are the result of “No Heat Curls”, which I first discovered at Tulle & Trinkets. She did hers a little different because she just wanted soft waves. I put my mostly dry hair pretty tightly around a headband and slept in it over night. I was surprised how well it held up, and how non-uncomfortable it was to sleep on!

The curls came out tighter than I intended in the front, and a lot looser in the back, but I think the end result actually looks pretty natural. They certainly don’t look like curling iron curls, and the inconsistency/frizz mimics how naturally curly hair acts.

I’ll probably try it again, but with a thicker headband next time.

P.S. This is a classic Shop Your Own Closet moment here. You’ve seen all these pieces before, just not paired together.
