Sugarcane in the Easy Morning

“Through playful lips made of yarn that fragile
Capricorn unraveled words like moths upon old scarves”

Bedhead. Bare face. I unexpectedly dug this pale pink sweater out of my dresser last night and felt compelled to style it sweetly. While it feels odd to present myself in any color that isn’t a shade of black, brown, or grey, it seems like a nice way to welcome the strange and slow transition into spring. I’m longing for the blossoming of flowers and fashion trends. In the meantime, I’m clinging to my bottle of Jasmine by Demeter to keep springtime memories alive. Especially with this windchill. I have a few little numbers stashed away in the back of my closet just waiting to be worn in warmer weather. I adore layering, but sometimes a piece just has to shine on its own, sans jacket. And so I’m counting down the days until I can throw on a mini dress and rock it without hassle. I have a few particular pieces in mind, and most of them are still attached to their price tags.


What will you be wearing this spring?

Snow days are perfect excuses to dress like royalty in jewels and faux fur. Pittsburgh may be facing an “arctic blast”, but nothing will stop me from having stylish fun.

Aye Ombré!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you’ve seen plenty of college girls sporting two-toned hair.  I’ve been hesitant to try this look because of its popularity, but after having the same hairstyle for 4 years, it was definitely time for a change.  And I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

As you can tell, I am the proud owner of ridiculously long locks, but since I’ve added color to them, Alexa Chung’s ombré bob has been inching its way up on my to-do list.

Are you over the two-toned hair trend?  Let me know in a comment below!
