Tiny hearts

I will allow you a moment to get over the shock you are feeling that I am posting TWO outfits in one day. Don't get used to it ;) If I tell you I won't post and do then I don't feel the pressure to perform. Lowered expectations is the key to happiness. (well for me it kinda is) eh? Basically I ain't your private dancer. Well if you ask nicely I might pretend to tap dance. I have shoes and everything.
I was making a weird face. I had to crop that bitch. Again all front facing ipad pics.
Dress Lands End Supah Sale. I have the same cut dress from 3 years ago in black. The only thing they changed is the waist and I hate this one. It is elastic and doesn't hit right! I couldn't tell online. It was cheap enough I didn't bother to return it. I will just keep covering it up with belts and sweaters.
Boots Clarks
Sweater Forever 21
Watch Avon

I got two comments in person today. No one ever says anything unless it is vaguely rude usually at work. (OH my aren't you trying to be fancy. OH my isn't that bright. Oh you're wearing halloween colors. You remind me of a pumpkin.)
Both comments today involved the word love and one was from the DEAN! Both people told me they loved my sweater! I mean who wouldn't love tiny hearts. (don't tell me if it's you. I will never look at you the same way. It's like not loving kittens. It's a sin I think)

I felt a little like I AM WEARING RED OMG IT IS SO BRIGHT today. People at my work employ a very muted palette. But that's me. The kid who wears a costume to school on Halloween when no one else does. (I may of done that at work once too.)

OK I usually don't like to share stuff like this because honestly the commentary usually gets my hackles up. (The I "prefer this to before." or " I prefered it before" always seem backhanded to me as if the other isn't good) BUT I AM A GLUTTON for punishment. I am thinking of chopping my hair. It's just so limp and I hate it down, I hate it up. Why not chop it?

I am thinking this. Which is a cut I have had a dozen times just teased.

At least now I know what a flat iron is. OY VEY.

This outfit is perfection. I love, love your other outfit from earlier today too.

I am always pro-haircut. Do it!

I had someone ask me about my shoes today, like where I got them/etc, and when I answered she gave me this boggled look and was like "I don't know what that is".. and I stared at her with her smartphone and said "I bought them on the internet" - Oy! People can be ridiculous.

I think your heart sweater is very cute. <3

I like your hair shorter. I like it longer too, but I say mix it up and get it cut. I always find it refreshing to chop my hair off when I've grown it out really long. I think you could carry the retro look very well.

as a hair-change addict, i say go ahead and get it cut! even though i recall you saying in the past that your hair doesnt grow very quickly, even if you decide you dont like it or if you get tired of it, it WILL grow back. i love changing the color, length, shape, and style of my hair, so i may just be projecting...

i love the heart sweater. i hate heart stuff for myself, but i love it on others. hopefully thats not a sin? i do still love kittens. :)

Tiny hearts rock. I'm telling you now that if I ever see you in person and you are wearing that sweater, you are getting tossed for it! :)

No idea what the waist is doing but I trust you - I just want to say that I really like how the skirt hangs and I picture you wearing a wide white belt in the summer with this dress. Super cute.

I love it when you post close-ups of your makeup. You have the best makeup...

I think your hair will be cute shorter--nothing wrong with a change. I've been thinking about a shorter cut post-baby, since I have all this growth right now that is apparently going to fall out as soon as the kid is born. I like the cut you posted a lot.

I meant to comment re: hair change. Because, you know, of course, what era I am thinking about and how you flat out said you will never do it again. I'll leave it at that, but you know.
