comfort in sweats.

you wouldn't have known, by the looks of these photos, that is was raining cats and dogs on this day. it was windy and cold, and i dressed for comfort with no intentions of taking pictures...but, i figured it was a rare occasion that
i was wearing tights + socks + high boots.
this sweatshirt dress used to be one of my favorites. now the stretchy parts aren't really stretchy and it has lost its softness. i'm hoping to find a replacement.

these photos finally reflect the haircut i was talking about a couple weeks ago. i asked for a shoulder length bob, but my stylist said no. instead, she cut off about six inches in the back, more on the sides to give me a v-shape and threw in a lot of layers on the bottom half to really thin it out. the day of the cut, she ironed it stick straight, but typically a loose braid overnight helps to tame the frizzies and embrace the natural waves that i have.

the day of the haircut...
i will never get it this straight at home.

  2. This is an excellent outfit and one I am so used to. We wear sweats and sweater dresses over leggings and boots all the time. But then again, it rains a LOT in Seattle.

    You still look gorgeous.

  5. I loved this outfit, and I'm glad you included it! It's really different from what we're used to see you in, and I loved your boots, and new hairstyle!
    I also prefer your hair with the natural waves, than straightened. You look better this way!
