Changes

Yesterday marked the start of my 30-day remix chain. I originally had two completely different outfits planned for yesterday and today, but I planned them before I knew what the weather would be like (bad idea). I changed my plans once I saw it was going to basically rain all weekend, but that didn’t really happen, so I’m kind of bummed. I could have gone with my original plan, but such is life. I’ll just wear them later this month. 😉

I will say that these outfits are not my favorites ever, but I expect that to happen when I show you what I wear for 30 days straight. I don’t always have “cool” outfits to share. Lucky (or not) for you guys, you get to see all the duds along with my better outfits. I picked this red striped top to start off with because it’s a more difficult one for me to style. I kept this outfit simple with basic skinny jeans, my black loafers, and some sparkle. The jacket was necessary for the rain, even though nothing fell while I was out and about. Still, it kept me warm–the temperatures took a pretty sharp nose-dive that made a jacket a practical choice.

The second major change occurred with my HAIR! I got ten inches cut off today and will be donating it. This is the first time I’ve ever donated my hair so I’m pretty excited about that. I’ve wanted to donate my hair before, but I’m usually too impatient to wait for it to grow out enough so that it’s not too short once it’s cut. I’ve had this cut planned for months, so after my last trim, I decided that this cut would be the big one. I’m not too attached to my hair–it grows back, after all. Plus, I haven’t had it this short in a very, very long time, so I hope to try some new styles with it. We’ll see, though, as it’s long enough to pull back into a ponytail still. (Thank goodness!)

For today’s outfit, I remixed the red striped top by pairing it with my forest green corduroy pants and adding this asymmetrical cardigan for warmth. I had been wary of wearing the top and pants together because I didn’t want to come off too Christmas-y, but I think the pants are dark enough that it worked. Who knows. Chris did call me a candy cane on top of a Christmas tree, after all.

  1. Congrats on your hair donation! I have always wanted to do that, but I heard that your hair must be free of any permanent color products? I’ve been thinking about a shorter style for a long time and that would be a great motivator (if I hadn’t been coloring my hair for the last 15 years or so)….

    • Thank you! 🙂 I read on the Locks of Love website that you can donated colored hair, but if the hair is highlighted, they won’t take it. I’m not sure if they actually use the colored hair or sell it to offset costs, but they do take it either way.
