New Hairstyle

Getting ready this morning to visit my mother for another sewing project, I happened upon a new hairstyle.  I've never worn a side bun before but I was so excited that my hair has become even long enough for such a style that I just went with it!  I usually like height in my hair as I'm so petite but I was loving the classic chicness of this side bun and it actually inspired my outfit for today.


As I've said before, I like monochromatic ensembles.  But texture is key.  A knit, some leather paneling and then to top it off, some glossy flats.
I love this cowled collar so much, it doubles as a scarf. Very warm and cozy.


The Taryn Rose flats are beautifully  made.  While the designs of this brand is overall, not my style (very very modest and classic, similar to how Talbots used to be in the 90s), the quality however, is impressive.   And this particular pair is blingy and modern enough to be my cup of tea.


Side Note: When working with a Tiny Closet, quality really matters for shoes in particular.  Cheap shoes get ruined light years faster and when they're ruined, I'm forking over money each time because without them, my Tiny Closet just got tinier... 


I realize I'm done running laps to the shoe cobbler throughout the year saving cheap shoes.  I'd rather spend more to get a lot more.
Anyway, I cursed and groaned through my sewing project today but in the back of my head I was loving this outfit.  And my new side-bun style :)
