I know, I know, it looks like I didn't do anything with my hair. But here's the scoop:
My hair normally looks like this in the summer (it it too darn hot to use a blow dryer and air drying= frizz):

...And so I took the time to blow dry it straight for today's 21 Day Challenge:
I've been growing it out for years now and I'm pretty sure I ought to straighten it much more often, it's more gratifyingly long when I do. Not until October, though. It's too dang hot still.

I really like this dress. It was one of those "meant to be moments" when I found it- The only one of it's kind, in my size, shoved behind something truly boxy. It's a weirdly subtle bold print reminiscent of leopard or something, but it looks like little paintbrush stippling up close. On board with the animal print, but a little more my style (although I did buy a pair of leopard flats and a headband, to be debuted later). I got chilly in the AC and threw on a cardigan, which gave it way more of a fall feel. I feel good today!

How was everyone's weekend? I spent Saturday in the house sitting location pool, Sunday day converting a pair of hideous wool walking shorts into a skirt (photos soon, it isn't quite done, and our Sunday night tradition is to go to the Grad bar on campus for my Guy's bromance's volunteer bartending shift and drink $.95 beers for an hour or so. EPIC sing-along to classic rock and 90's music.


  1. Oh it looks great! i understand the heat though, I don't do much to my hair in the summer! Too hot!

  2. i am dying over that leopard dress! it's gorgeous!

  3. You hair looks very nice straightened. (: Also, that dress rocks--it fits you well and the pattern is killer.

  4. This is all SO pretty. You look ridiculously statuesque in the dress and I just want to run my fingers through your hair.

  5. Love it all around. I'm with you though, who really wants to do their hair in the blasted heat!? You can rock the straight here look.

  6. P.S. I don't have any secrets to "great" hair, I've never dyed it though, but it doesn't look like you have either. Maybe smooth hair is the one blessing of being cursed with red hair? I'm not sure.

  7. I absolutely agree with you about straitening hair in the summer, it's way too hot. I can't believe that dress is from Target! I would have totally thought it was from Ann Taylor or Banana Republic. It looks so elegant! I would have loved to see it with the cardigan. It looks like such a pretty color and the details look interesting.
