When I saw that the high temperature for the day was going to be a cool seventy three, I knew I couldn’t let this opportunity slip away. I had to wear these boots one last time before putting them into storage. Despite the cool temperatures, I didn’t want to fully jump into my fall wardrobe so I balanced the boots with cutoffs and a tank. I have to admit that when I checked this look out in the mirror I thought it might be a wee bit trashy and I couldn’t decide if it was good trashy or bad trashy. Perhaps I was a little too inspired by Jersey Shore the night before? After a quick text poll, it was agreed that it was good trashy, so I rolled with it.
It’s more than clear that I can’t resist anything in black and white, and I’ve had a streak of black and white purchases from Forever 21 (like this skirt and this tank). Since this tank has low cut armholes, I decided to wear a bright bandeau to add a little color. For accessories, I wore only this watch, which fit the rocker vibe of the rest of the look, and a slouchy gray bag with studs.
Lately, while editing photos there are only two words that come to mind: bang trim! I really need a bang trim but I am cutting almost all of my hair off next week so I just don’t see the point. I meant to get one two weeks ago but I am so busy with moving that my days are flying by. When I first realized that my current hairstyle is just not realistic for beach life, I was a little sad to say goodbye to it. I have a history of experimenting with my hair and this one is definitely my favorite so far, but as my hair appointment approaches, I am actually really excited to chop it off! Who else loves the feeling of a cute new haircut?
