Inspiration: Elizabeth Olsen’s New ‘Do

Okay okay, I know everyone and their mother has cut their hair into ‘the Lob’ (you know, long bob – it needs to be shortened because writing that out is oh so tedious) this year. Karlie Kloss, Julianne Hough, Lauren Conrad just to get the ball rolling. But no one had me even considering taking a scissor to my strands until I saw Elizabeth Olsen’s new ‘do.

There’s something about Olsen that has made her something of a hair spirit guide lately. When I cut my hair a couple years ago, it was her picture that I took to the salon. And the long brown locks she’s been sporting recently had me thinking about going back to my more natural color. Then she went and did this.

I’ve been growing out my hair for what feels like forever and I’m not sold on starting over but when I saw Olsen’s drastic style difference, I felt mildly inspired. Enough so to call and make a hair appointment for today.

I don’t expect you’ll be seeing a big change but there’s that very small part of me that just might go for it. What do you think?

Inspiration: All That Glitters

It’s the holiday season. I’ve finally come to accept it which means it’s time to prepare for all the holidays bring with them – gift giving, parties, events, family gatherings and even a little traveling.

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is getting dolled up for holiday parties. Sometimes we even try to get a little fancy for Christmas dinner … sometimes. So to get in the right mindset for the season of sparkle, I’ve pulled together a little inspiration to help you shop your own closet, a friends’ or before you hit up the mall.

I’ve even included a few sparkly gift ideas at the end because I just couldn’t help myself.

Inspiration: Fall Favorites

It’s officially fall. Well on the calendar that is. Someone has yet to pass along the memo to Mother Nature since it’s still climbing into the 80’s here on the regular.

I’ve pretty much avoided breaking out all my fall gear so far but a crazy messy closet and one afternoon of crazy OCD have me switching out my summer gear for cozier, fall basics. All of that is just a fancy way of saying I packed up my shorts, kicked my espadrilles and sandals to the back of the closet and broke out the scarves, boots and heavier weight pants. Now I’ve got a big load of musty laundry to do but a whole new batch of options for daily dressing. Gotta take the good with the bad there.

To get back in the mood for fall dressing, I’ve rounded up some inspiration. I can guarantee that I’ll be putting my own spin on some of these looks in the near future. Well as soon as those temperatures decide to drop.
