New Haircut, New Year

OMG I cannot describe how good it feels to have finally gotten a haircut! I am so bad about getting my hair done; I noticed that my last cut was in March of this year – eek! I just can’t handle long hair. It’s too high maintenance, plus my hair is so fine that it just hangs there once it gets past my shoulders. I felt like a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders when the hair started to fall to the floor.

Thanks Toi (my stylist at Hair by Stacie in Miramar) for knowing exactly how to translate what I want into a cut that works for my face! After being blonde pretty much all my life at my last few appointments I tried to embrace my light brown roots, but blonde just feels more like me.

Anyway, on to my birthday outfit! I celebrated with my man and my good friend Sarah at Fred’s in Old Town and had a blast drinking and eating too much. Thanks Sarah for always being willing to shoot some pictures for me! And thanks babe for the sweet treats!

I have been thoroughly enjoying wearing coats lately – as it’s actually been cold enough – and I couldn’t resist a few shots with the signature blogger “coat draped over the shoulders” pose. This is another Burlington find from way back when (likely at least 6 years ago). Since my coats don’t get much wear in sunny CA they seem to last forever! This Miss Sixty Coat still looks brand new and stylish all these years later.

I love this Sanctuary dress, not only is it super soft and comfortable, but it’s pretty flattering as well! Being a little busty I had to get a little DIY and use double sided tape to prevent any gapping in between the buttons near my bust. Worked like a charm! I get a lot of compliments on this one. Another great Macy’s steal! It’s currently on sale in this color at Nordstrom Rack and in Laurent Plaid at Sanctuary’s website). Both colors are great IMO.

Happy New Year!!!
