Changing Things Up

I thought I would change my hair.  For once.  

It was fun :)  Leave it to me though to make an afro-hawk into an updo.  My hair has grown deceptively long so in order to avoid looking like Aunty Entity of Thunder Dome, I bundled up the back of my hawk and pinned it in.... the alteration sort of turned it girly and fancy.



And with this new hair do, this change in perspective, while putting on my chevron mini to go to happy hour last night, I decided to change my routine as well.  Like I've said in the past, I always dress down anything short or sexy.  So instead of wearing my usual brogues or oxfords with my mini last night, I decided to wear a pair of spike heeled sandals.  Yeah baby. 


tee: Asos.com / chevron skirt: The Tiny Closet Collection / sandals: Jimmy Choo for H&M

I debuted this skirt earlier with a crop top.  Needless to say now though, with a mini skirt and stilettos, I had no need for a cropped top.  Could you imagine?  Yikes.  Instead, I chose just the opposite - a drapey flowing tee.  Yes please!




These spicy lil sandals never get old.  I got them on the first day the Jimmy Choo collabo line became available at H&M and then I never wore them.  When I decided to either chuck them or rock them, I never would've thought there would be so many possibilities with the latter.  I'm glad I kept them around.  I have also worn them here:






And on another note, it is finally swimsuit season!  Which means I am brewing up some ideas for swimwear that will be stylish, simple, and have.... an element of surprise.  

Can't wait to share!!

  4. Ha! I too tend to dress down short/sexy outfits, I guess to not draw too much attention to myself. I am quick to reach for a pair of flats with a short dress/shorts. Must.do.better!
