I woke up one day and decided I didn’t like pants. Don’t really know why, I guess I’m getting bored of my usual look? It’s also really uncomfortable to have skintight jeans when it’s so hot out.
We went shopping in Vegas, and I picked up a few skirts to explore this style shift I’m going through. I haven’t worn skirts since my very conservative Christian high school where girls weren’t allowed to wear jeans and we all had to wear knee-length skirts if we were out of uniform. It’s a dumb rule for reasons I won’t go into, but it turned me off skirts for a long time.
It’s only now, ten years later, that I’ve started wearing them out of my own volition. Long skirts are so comfortable. I’m definitely over jeans for now.
I went for a haircut the day I wore the outfit above. My hair was at a very awkward length, and I hated the way it looked straight. I actually cut it myself before, but I realized recently how uneven it was from the back. I set an appointment with a salon to fix it up and take off a few inches. I love the result! Here’s to hoping I don’t have to go back for another few months!
I’ve been wearing a lot of hats too lately because I haven’t touched up my roots. I’ve been letting them go. I used to be militant about dyeing my hair every four weeks to the dot, but time’s been flying by these days. All of a sudden, I realize it’s been six weeks and I’m scrambling to order a box of my usual dye.
All this maintenance doesn’t amuse my anymore. Maybe that’s a sign that it’s time to go darker. Blonde’s too much work! But going darker’s gonna take a lot of work too. Maybe I should go back to black and be done with all this.
Mike said I dress like a mom now. I just wanna be comfortable, okay? It’s too hot for anything else. I’m gonna try to stick to this no-pants rule as long as I can for funsies.
Scored another backpack too! There was a time when I said I’d never wear backpacks ~ever again~~!! LOL college Raisa was delusional. I’ve been seeing so many cute ones lately! Plus, it’s so nice to have both arms completely free. I can’t go back to purses right now.
How’s your summer going? It’s nearly over! I can’t wait for fall and cooler temperatures.
