Not Safe For May

OOTD: Roots and Boots

February 22, 2015 0 Comments

There are a few things I would like to talk about in this post:

  1. I have purple hair now. All of it started off as dark purple (see Instagram) and now it’s fading into this orchid ombre. It’s been about 2 months since my last salon visit (hence the roots) so I actually need to decide what’s next before next month’s appointment: more purple, lighter, ecaille?
  2. After months of searching, I found the perfect faux leather moto jacket with gold hardware. I actually found an equally perfect real leather one shortly afterwards, but that’s another post for a different day. I’m actually considering getting rid of this one now.
  3. I cleaned out my closet like you wouldn’t believe. I have a new vision for what I want it to look like, and this new dress/jacket combo is part of it. Neutral, classic, and versatile.
  4. My boyfriend got me a beautiful 50mm lens for Valentine’s Day so we played with it over the weekend!

Super excited that this marled maxi worked out. I took a chance on a Forever 21 web exclusive. The length is perfect for my 5’2″ frame. The slit is a little surprising and unexpected, but haaaaaay.
