Shallow thoughts...

Because I promised you guys pictures of my hair but was having a ponytail day yesterday and didn't get a good picture, I had an impromptu photo shoot in the bathroom at work this morning.


Clearly not the best light, but you get the idea. It's an all over reddish brown with darker lowlights and just a few "peekaboo" highlights.  I feel like I'm almost a redhead (auburnhead?), which is pretty much perfect.  I'm not convinced that I'm sassy enough to pull off full-blown red. ;)

I'm also not convinced that I'm sassy enough to pull off these shoes...


I swore I'd never wear booties, so these are a bit of a stretch for me (they zip up the back, so they're definitely bootie-ish) (and BTdubs, it's so awkward posing for these stupid pictures.  I must have taken a million before I gave up and accepted the fact that I'm going to look ridiculous no matter what I do.  I'm apparently not meant to master the art of the self-portrait.).  But they do spice up this simple black wrap dress, so I went with them anyway.

(Some days I get deep and contemplative on this blog.  Today is clearly not one of those days.  And tomorrow probably won't be either.  Be forewarned... :))

I LOVE your hair! I'm in the process of growing mine out for a wedding I am in next year and I can't wait to have enough to do soft beautiful curls like yours! Do you use a special curling iron? Also, I love your shoes! I know what you mean though, I have some shoes that I am not sure I pull off well-but I almost always get compliments when I wear them. Sometimes we just gotta step out of the box! :) Have a great day!

Haha so funny! Self-phone-camera pics are the BEST! It's like do you look at the phone or in the mirror...do you smile or do your make-up applying face...then it's like screw this, i have just wasted 10 min trying to take 1 picture!!! Love your hair girl! Super fun :)

I posted about my yard today. So I'm not in the business of judging blogging topics haha. I wish I could pull off dark hair. I think it looks great! And the shoes look supercute from the front. I'd be nervous about pulling off the zipper part myself, though!
