Merona (Target brand) top
vintage waist belt
Express twill leggingsThe Merona top is a medium (no smaller sizes available), but I just loved the length, look, and texture (polyester) of it! Looking forward to wearing this tucked into a high waisted skirt too!
Dunno what to call these ruffly things going down the center, but I love 'em!
I actually wore a different top with the skirt to work, but after taking a picture of it I realized how horrible I looked! Uggggh can't believe I walked around downtown all day looking like that T_T
Anyways.. took 2 seconds to switch to a more suitable top. Problem is, it has an elastic waistband. And the skirt is huuge (size 00P.. BR you are so inconsistent!). I bought this skirt 3-4 years ago.. either I was a chubster and it fit fine, or it was too large at the time but I didn't care.
Here's the quick fix with my trusty Forever 21 $4.80 belt! The skirt looks much better at this length in my opinion. Little bit of scrunching but I can live with it.
Update on hair for anyone who is curious... so before my hair was super long and not layered, so the weight pulled my hair down, making it really flat and lifeless. After getting it cut, the shorter layers are really light and have lift. I don't know how to style it when it's straight ~ it looks really awkward and terrible if I just flatiron. So I've been curling with my flat iron instead. And when I say curl, I'm only curling very slightly at the ends, so basically I flip my wrist when I'm almost to the bottom of the hair and it makes 1 curl per strand (does that make sense?). Because of all the layers it looks like more curls, but it's basically because of the many layers stacked on top of each other. I now have huge hair. And if you're curious, it takes somewhere b/w 3-5 minutes to curl (same amt of time it took to flatiron before.. maybe even less b/c doesn't have to be so perfect). I still wake up at 7:45 and am out the door by 8ish.
I'm really happy b/c the stylist cut off enough length so that all my dead and split ends are gone. My hair feels soooo healthy and strong! Before, after blowdrying and flatironing my hair was a tangled mess that made it a nightmare to run my fingers through. And now, I can comb my hair no problem!
Tried to smile here. My eyelids are weird. I do have lids, but one tends to disappear on one eye. And then, sometimes they both disappear altogether.
