Today’s Outfit + Messy Bun Tutorial.
June 28, 2011
I worked at the salon this evening, as I do every Monday and Tuesday. Normally this works to my
advantage while getting ready because I have more time. Other times, I will get preoccupied with
laundry, or photo work, or full house reruns and forget that I have to shower and be presentable …
and then I am a little rushed.
Today I had plenty of time while getting ready. So when picking out this little ensemble, I pulled the
skirt first, and then held it up to my hanging tops. I went down the row, and picked out each and every
one that looked like a possible contender for the outfit of the day. I pulled about four, since I knew I
didn’t want to do solid black or solid white today. I was lookin’ for something a little more fun and
unexpected. Because of that, I threw on the most questionable of the bunch first, and ended up liking it.
So that’s what I went with. This shirt that doesn’t really match … but could … if you step back like ten
feet … and squint. See? Now it looks awesome.
We took these pictures twice today. Once before I left for work when it was cloudy and nasty. We
mostly did this just so Kai could complain about the awful lighting. Then we took the real blog pictures
before dinner when it was sunny and gorgeous out. Why waste a chance to be masochistic? That’s our motto.
