The Adventures of Getting Dressed

I've talked before about the usual craziness that happens when I go to get dressed for the day. I usually don't document it because there was obviously a reason why I change the outfit. 
Today, I decided to just post all the three outfits I changed into this morning. I ended up keeping the last outfit. My wardrobe just feels so "blah" these days. Or maybe it's my hair. Either way, I just feel like I need a little "oomph" to bring me back to life on the appearance front. 
Maybe it's the fact that I haven't felt quite like myself recently. I'm not sure what it is that is making me feel that way but I think it needs to be changed. Here are some ideas I'm throwing around:
  • Giving my hair a break from heat for a month and just wearing it in its natural state. I always intend to do this, then end up straightening it. At which point I wish I had left it curly. Silly, I know.
  • Letting my bangs grow out. I know that sounds strange but I go back and forth so much with them but usually end up not liking them but keep them because I've become attached after 3 years of them.
  • Start journaling for myself. This is something I really really would love to do but just haven't gotten around to.
  • Figure out a way to expand my little baking business. I would love to start doing more orders and rely on that alone for my income as a student.
Any ideas from you lovely people?


  1. Ever consider dying your hair? Whenever I feel "blah" or in need of a change I usually cut/dye my hair. Or try purchasing some new items of clothing that usually you don't to spice up your wardrobe. :)

  2. Whenever I start to feel down on my self or a little lost, I usually try and start up a new little project or set a new goal for myself :) So I think you're on the right track! Journaling is something I strongly believe in (though don't do enough myself!) But hair changes and the like work too! ;)

    I love the colours in all 3 of these outfits, very summery!

  3. Really love the pop of red in each of those outfits. The bright tights are so fun! As far as needing a change, I understand where you're coming from. Journaling is a great idea! A quick fix like coloring your hair or getting it cut in a different style might be fun too. That's always my go-to when I need something different.

    Just found your blog through your guest post at Thrifted Things. And so glad that I did. It's lovely! I'm follow via GFC and can't wait to read more in the future.


    1. Thank you! The mister got me these tights for Christmas and I love them! I think I'm going to try journaling and trying some different things with my hair!
      And thank you again! Your blog is just lovely as well!
