I picked up this vintage dress at Boston's Garment District. I like that both the fit and colors are a bit different from what I normally wear. The dress and shoes are both very comfortable and I do enjoy wearing them, but I also feel a bit like I'm playing dress-up.

This is an outfit, on the other hand, that is very traditionally "me": a little bit of whimsy, a fuller skirt, bolder colors, flats, and very little jewelry. There are days when I find outfits like this to be far more comfortable and easier to put together than the standard jeans and a tee.
I grew up doing my three little sisters hair but I never became very skilled at doing my own - I'm just not naturally that coordinated. My hair also has very little natural texture (super straight and slippery) so I've always found it frustrating that it won't hold curls, waves, etc. This is a big reason why I got a pixie cut a while back and I why I don't think I'll ever go long again. Bloggers like Moda Mama, however, have inspired me to try and be a little more adventurous with it while it's mid length. My skills need a lot of improvement but I'm determined to master braiding in my bangs this summer.
