Because I didn’t have time to snap a proper outfit picture yesterday…and anyway, I’m sure you’ll see this combination again sometime in the next 10 days! Although I do have to admit, I cheated last night: my husband asked me (I was going to say nicely, but really he said to me “are you going to change your pants?” LOL) to change my pants before we met a friend of his for dinner. And I did. I wore my J Brand lovestory jeans with my JP white tee and Everlane cashmere sweater, so I only really cheated with the pants. But my husband REALLLLLLLLY hates my slouchy pants, and I actually do make an effort to not wear things he hates when we go out, because I don’t have to, but I didn’t take that into consideration when planning my 10 pieces for the challenge.
Which reminds me that I’ll have to remember that when packing for San Francisco – do not bring the JP crepe surplus pants. I think my Hope trousers will be okay, because they’re not nearly as slouchy in the back as the JP ones are. The JP pants stretch out SO MUCH with wear that they just become huge, so they’re not ideal for travel anyway, since they’re only good for one wear. Laurel would not approve.
I got my color done yesterday, but no cut (that’s next week) and I love it. It’s not quite as bright and blonde as before, but she worked with my existing ends and lightened up the roots to a very nice light brown, with dimension. I’m so happy with it. And I decided that I’m going to keep growing my hair out, no bangs, for a while and see how I like it. She’s going to thin it out A LOT so I can get a straighter, edgier look as it grows, since I have a ton of hair. I’m looking forward to that. And I’m glad I finally made a decision!!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!! My new Pure Barre Studio in Plano is celebrating their 1st anniversary (congratulations Jill!) so we’re going to that party and afterwards FINALLY going to try True Food kitchen, which I’ve been dying to go to since we moved here. What are your plans?
